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 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.
Chris decided to be sick, so Andrew ropes in Ian Buck to talk about himself, Steam, GPUs, NVidia, GPU drivers, how GPUs render, Java using GPUs, GPU manufacturers, Google, and so forth. It's like there's some sort of theme to this episode!
Andrew explains Kickstarter and FM transmission, then interviews Steven. They also talk about far flung topics like risk, business decisions, loans, McAfee, chargers, web servers, databases, display managers, social networks, signing up, Steam, compromised security algorithms, listener feedback, and so much more.
Andrew and Chris agree to not talk about the NSA, discuss the number 42, a bus, StarCraft science, updates on Kickstarters, Siria, Linux, Ballmer, FiOS, YouTube, ECMAScript, unwanted wares, adblocking, Xerox, frameworks, destroying code, Firefox plugins, and whitelisting.
Chris and Andrew wonders whether or not you should have this much jargon or snails, game genre alphabet soup, reckless twittering, filesystems, Google, Windows 8, XML, the NSA (yet again), war on general computing, and more games.
Andrew and Chris talk about the Sun being the end of the world, how to hide, Canada, new things, POWER, assumptions about names, patents, the future, typography, SQL Server, security, Xerox, and listener feedback.
Chris sings about bugs, Andrew complains about having them, then they talk about employment, LOLIDIOT, YouTube, consoles, 4K, not caring, web 3d technologies, new video formats, and about what the Feds are up to, along with listener feedback.
