Guten Tag! Oh sorry, I mean hello. Welcome (wilkommen) to the 19th Weekly Rewind, and as you might guess I’m in Germany. I’m visiting my Linux Outlaws co-host Fab in Bonn. Feeling a bit tired after a long trip yesterday but looking forward to Linux Tag in Berlin next week. So let’s get into what led me to this point earlier in the week.
On Monday I released the 2nd episode of Rathole Radio, it’s had a good reception. I’ve had some really nice comments which I appreciate and someone even described me as a cross between Phill Jupitus and John Peel. I’m not sure about that but 2 guys I like a lot and if I can get close to that it would be cool. I’ll keep trying. I also edited a rush episode of the Software Freedom Law Show on Monday afternoon. Then it was on to Linux Outlaws in the evening. It was quite a day, to say the least. Hectic but rewarding.
I had a rest mostly on Tuesday but did a few jobs. On Wednesday I recorded and interview with Professor Kliq and his manager for Rathole Radio. I’ll be away when the next show is due on Sunday the 28th, so I’ve cheated and pre-recorded a load of content. I’ll edit that together in while in Germany and release it before I head for the plane next Sunday. I also finished and released my Linux Mint 7 review on Wednesday. On Thursday it was the Liverpool Tweet Up and I had a lot of fun. It was really great to meet some new folks and catch up with some old friends I hadn’t seen in years. On Friday I recorded more content for the next Rathole Radio and packed for the trip to Germany. The weekend has mostly been taken up with travel. Which brings me to lovely Bonn. So there you go, you’re up to date.
It’s gonna be a very busy and interesting week. We’ll record an epeisode of Linux Outlaws in the same place tomorrow. On Tuesday we drive to Berlin and get ready for Linux Tag 2009. It’s a massive show and I’ve never been before, so hopefully we’ll record lots of good content there. We also plan to record our episode 100 special in the car on the way. There’ll be no mention of Linux really and we’ll just ramble, answering questions people post on Identi.ca and Twitter. On Saturday it’s back to Bonn and then I’m back to Amsterdam to catch a plane on Sunday. No rest for the wicked. I’ll try and post some pics or updates from Linux Tag as things progress. Take care everyone and I’ll catch up with you soon.
P.S – I almost forgot since it’s Weekly Rewind 19, we have to have this video. N-n-n-n-n-nineteen!! 😀
