I am a really big fan of TWiT
In fact I watch quite a lot of it.
For my life it is a perfect fit
I’ll pour a drink and have a sit
chuckling at news of corporate twits
and CEOs having hissy-fits
From Linux news to gaming hits
this station covers all of it
Nuggets of gold without all the
Hello there from over here.
Here is where I am being, which is the fine place known as Cornwall, UK.
I forget when I started watching Security Now, but that was my introduction to TWiT several years ago.
TWiT and SN leached into my own radio show gradually, as I started including more security and privacy news with our usual tech and science topics, until it is now often the main focus (though we are still aim for half the show to be music, half of which the chatroom supply).
Watching TWiT I realised that as I use IRC I should also include our listeners, because the way it improves and adds value to TWiT is immeasurable.
This often adds a lot of amusement during our show due to the fact I use Trillian and it has sound samples for some of the emotes and emoji. A fact various members of the chat room relish and will “help” us by underscoring what we are talking about.
Combined with the fact my show co-pilot is armed with his own soundboard I often wonder why I am trying to do a show in a zoo.
I consider myself a general purpose nerd, jack of all trades. This means I am no expert on any topic but have a broad grasp of things and how they relate.
Originally I was all about the hardware and wanted to be a digital/analogue electronics engineer, but at the end of my training I realised the industry was changing and I had basically wasted my time.
Wielding a soldering iron became something archaic and everything fits in a socket.
Even manually setting the jumpers on a motherboard became a thing of the past and I lost the satisfaction of even that menial manual task.
One final thing,
C= AMIGA Forever !
