Reviews

  • Apparently foreign reviews are foreign to Itunes..
    • Ratingscatcher.com 
  • From Tooper_ish back in July (5-stars):
    • These admins Rock!                           

    • Charles, Nate and their co-hosts really rock the news and events in the systems world. With a nice leaning towards open source/’nix but updates in general tech goings on are abound…
  • From sabertooth604 from August of 2019 (5 stars):
    • Useful info and entertaining                           

    • I listen to Iron Sysadmin on regular basis. This podcast contains useful relevant information covering a plethora of subjects. Nate, Jason, Dustin and the others definitely deliver an entertaining view on information technology. 🙂 thanks and keep up the good work!! (From Canada)

Reviews

  • Used to love it – DeathByHubris (2-stars, booo) (Sorry Marc…)
    •  
    • uncle mark just annoys me way too much to keep listening. brought the show from 4 or 5 stars to 2, and frankly just not worth listening. his constant interruptions to inject unfunny jokes, repetition lines, and very loud periodic yelling, have ruined a once enjoyable listen. unsubscribing and removing from recommend list
  • Sucking me in!! – frame:45 (5-stars)
    • I’ve had this podcast on my phone for a while but just lately started diving in. Really liking the tech info and the personal interaction back and forth. Personalities make me feel like I’m listening to friends that I’ve never met in person. Thanks for the show guys. Love the interviews, really enjoy hearing how people got into tech!!
  • Fun to hear from like minded folk – iamtehMichael (5-stars)
    • It’s been a fun show so far to listen to. Thanks for making these!

Chat

  • [unclemarc] I like reading books, so I finally bought a Kindle Fire. I share my thoughts after 24 hours or so
  • [gangrif] passed my RHCE, but you know that by now
  • [gangrif] dad and I built an awesome double-sided desk for the kids to do their home-schooling from.

  • [unclemarc] It’s the Steam Summer Sale, so I’ll probably buy some more games I won’t play. I did buy a HOTAS, which makes Elite Dangerous much more fun…and playing in VR is sick! Also, Deep Rock Galactic gets 5 out of 5 drunken violent dwarves in space. It’s a must buy if you like coop shooters. Or drunken space dwarves. 
  • Charles fell off his bike… 
  • Nate’s jeep is still broken.

Episode 82 – The Face

Welcome to Episode 82

Main Topic

The Face

Responses:

  • Many responses say they hate FB, but feel like they have no choice but to participate
  • Peter from Twitter:
    • I removed Fb from my phone after the privacy scandals and removed any personal information that was not required – I much prefer Instagram (Facebook-lite if you will) because sharing pictures was a nice component that I valued and is typically positive in content and comment.
    • The biggest reason I dropped it aside the negativity was the time suck and distraction Facebook transforms any standard handheld device – I still use Facebook, but far more deliberately and perhaps once a week or less and I rarely comment or post now
  • Linuxsys666 from twitter
    • Deactivated about 6 months ago, haven’t missed it (SNR was quite low by then). I just use telegram and twitter occasionally now. Also these pocket computers have a telephone in them so I’ve gone back to using that feature
  • Will from Twitter
    • Left in the last year. Switched mostly to Twitter or just nothing at all.
      • How’s life without it? Do you feel like you’re missing out? And do you care?
    • Don’t care, don’t feel like I’m missing anything. Id say better without it. Most of what was left was political or irrelevant to my life which drove me away.
  • Rob from Twitter
    • I left Fb about 6 years ago . Was hard at first had to delete all apps . But live it now . It’s a great freedom
  • Trends from RH Conversation
    • I left FB because i got tired of the BS
    • Mental health
      • One response says they actually track their mental wellbeing, and the app theyre using to do so actually shows an improvement. I have questions… moodscope.com 
    • Lots of talk about echo chamber and social bubbles
    • Gamification..
      • Some believe that the platform is designed to show you the worst, so you keep checking back in to see if things have gotten better?
    • Privacy
      • A lot of folks cited privacy as the reason they’re no longer on fb
      • Some said it’s a losing battle, it doesn’t matter if you attempt to protect your privacy, its already lost
  • Alternatives
    • From all sources, i’ve heard only a few alternatives
      • Other social platforms, like insta, twitter, and some who actually liked g+
      • A move to chat platforms like discord, whatsapp
