hpr1898 :: Free my music!

Released on 2015-11-11 under a CC-BY-SA license.

How I got my music library transferred from my Mac to my Linux box, thereby allowing me to fully switch to Linux. This is a problem I've been neglecting for a while that has been keeping me tethered to iTunes whenever I want to hear my music. This probably isn't the best or simplest solution, but it's how I felt comfortable doing it.

hpr1853 :: I <3 Vista

Released on 2015-09-09 under a CC-BY-SA license.

I talk about how Vista got me into Linux, and my computing experience in general.

hpr1763 :: Intro to Homebrewing

Released on 2015-05-06 under a CC-BY-SA license.

I talk a bit about homebrewing, how to do it, what it is, and how to get started. If there is interest, I will do more in-depth shows on the topic, otherwise I will let it stand alone.
