In S0E3 we talk mostly about DriveDroid (an Android app that lets you use your phone as a bootable USB device), alternate Android firmware options, the Creative Commons, and the Bash shell vs ZSH (“Z-Shell”).

Notes

  • Boyd’s Cardinal Hollow Winery can be found here. You can order the Whiskey Mead, what I was drinking, along with all their other wines and such here.
  • I mention perique American Spirit rolling tobacco – it comes in a plastic pouch that looks like this
  • If you have certifications and think they’re a good thing, or you’re a hiring manager and base your hiring on certification, please contact us for an episode we’re trying to put together
  • You can find DriveDroid here (paid version here) and the developer’s site is here
    • We mention SystemRescueCD (also called SysResc/SysRescCD)
    • And the Arch Install ISO
    • The Manjaro Installer ISO
    • The Ubuntu ISO
    • Also mentioned are Debian ISO and the CentOS 7 ISO
    • I mention NetBoot as well as iPXE (I had referred to gPXE, also called Etherboot- iPXE is a newer fork of gPXE)
    • I mention booting Mac OS X from USB storage, you can see instructions here, and you can view a handy list of boot option key shortcuts on Intel Macs here
    • The following can boot from DriveDroid in KVM. You may need to tweak it to your environment (e.g. USB hardware address, MAC address/network configuration, etc.) and only serves as an example: qemu-system-x86_64 -enable-kvm -m 2048 -net vde,sock=/run/vdectl -net nic,vlan=0,macaddr=00:11:22:33:44:55 -monitor stdio -vnc '''-usb -usbdevice host:d3ad:b33f''' -boot menu=on
    • I also mention hybrid ISOs
  • We talk about Android and custom forks
    • Such as CyanogenMod
      • The instructions I used for flashing my phone (see errata) are hereNOTE: YOUR PROCESS MAY DIFFER, make sure you look your phone up in CyanogenMod’s table!
    • And Paranoid Android
    • And AOKP
    • And PAC ROM
    • The Android SDK – note that it’s already packaged in a lot of GNU/Linux distro repositories! I believe Ubuntu users can find it in the Ubuntu Developer Tools Center
      • You can find instructions on using the Android Emulator here
    • We also mention XDA
    • I mention in passing that I play Ingress, an ARG (agent name johnnybubonic. Go Smurfs!)
  • I use BoxBackup for personal and project backups
  • Creative commons is here. Our specific license is CC-BY-SA 4.0
  • Information on the GPL can be found here or here
  • And if you’re looking for a bunch of books available from the public domain, check out Project Gutenberg Project Gutenberg
  • We talk about the pros and cons of Bash and Zsh
    • The Debian-based live distro grml even provides a lot of extra documentation for zsh because they love it so much (SysRescCD, which we link to above, also uses zsh by default)
  • We talk about VI / Vim versus Emacs

Errata

Sorry for the weird sound balancing. Jthan’s raw recording wasn’t very normalized. I did what I can, but it’s still pretty hard to hear him sometimes. I’ll tweak it more at some point after I remaster S0E0.
