Ken, does it make sense to wait for the video to be available before posting the podcast? No big deal, but kind of a tease.

The delay is probably due to other higher priority events. It does get done in pretty good timely fashion. Ken is only human after all.

So pdjblum, if you don't like the tease, watch it live or watch the recorded version on twitch, or do both :)

Other than that, the show was good! It also explains why techies or IT Nerds have so well defined upper body muscles (exclude Josh's attempted comments to hide the truth and refer to Ryan)

Happy Holidays!

Copy that. Didn't mean to be a nag. Better tell Ryan that Ken is only human, not me. I am not the boss of him. I can only make suggestions or comments.

Happy Holidays to you too YTECH

Unfortunately, you will have to blame YouTube for the processing delay :).

You are both wrong, we do it on purpose as torturing viewers provides us the only real joy in our lives!  ;)

I thought a good brewsky, or scotch in your case Jeremy, is the real joy in your life. But torture is good too. Keep up the good torture.

Is it just me, but there are quite a few tech websites, PCPer NOT one of them, that are not fully reporting/informing to their readers, that the current steam OS is a BETA version, as well as negleting to inform their readers, that the current ifixit SteamBox hardware is a BETA top teir Refrence design, and that there are 2 lower teir SteamBox refrence (BETA) designs that ifixit has yet to evaluate. This under reporting, is referred to as lies of omittance, and many Tech reporting websites are doing a disservice to their readers, or are complicit in placating some hidden agenda for the hand that feeds them. This under reporting appears to be supported by targeted posts (Astroterfing) that exclaim "Oh this SteamBox is too costly", or "Look I can not do word processing with Steam OS", "If only it had this"(FUD), "or could do that"(more FUD). Steam OS is a DEBIAN based distro, what can be added to a DEBIAN based distro! Well some of these "impartial" tech websites know damn well what software can be installed, or desktop UIs can be added to a DEBIAN based distro!
