Details

You can call us whatever you want, just don't call us late for dinner. Although late for releasing the episode, yeah, that's fine.


Epic are going to war against Apple and Google. Microsoft and Stadia are joining the battle against Apple. Only the courts can decide if Apple should be allowed to control everything on your phone. Stallman was right.


The 9th Doctor is back in Big Finish for a series of audio plays. More Christopher Eccelstone? There aren't many people complaining.


Ceres is home to an underground ocean which could provide the conditions needed for life. Maybe the penguins have some fishy space friends.


Join us next time for a hopefully on time release.
