Control Structure is a podcast about computer science, IT news, stories, opinions, tips, and tricks for programmers, testers, administrators of all types and more, for fun or for profit hosted by Andrew Bailey. And also some other things, just because they are cool.
Andrew and Steven return to podcasting to talk about lost technology, acquisitions, web browsers, New Year's resolutions, deprecation of the web and the internet, Markov chains, and more, along with a long winded explanation of btrfs features.
Steven dares to wake the idle podcasting phenomenon of Andrew! They talk about some stories, then Dell, Apple, Mozilla, Cisco, helium filled hard drives, SEC, RSA, NSA, Google, and some other ancillary anecdotes.
Andrew nabs Ryan and talks about the end of XP, Andrew's side project, IKEA, jokes, Indians, standards, careers, emails, RAM, trials, Google's TOS, fabs, Firefox, NSA, hosts, patterns, Ghost, and listener feedback.
Chris starts the podcast without Andrew, and then proceeds to catch up with things, then they make remarks about the government failures, Titus, security leaks, employee leaks, DRM, robots vs. humans, trolls, REST, Linux kernel structure, and user feedback.
Andrew welcomes back Steven to talk about old computers, government shutdowns, CERN, Google Street View, chiptunes, more GPU news, Valve, GNU, Bill Gates, funny observations, 64-bit, Mozilla, copyright, debugging private keys, and more.
