Recent shows

How many recent shows should we keep on this page? --AKalair 10:03, 10 April 2009 (PDT)

I'm thinking the last months worth or so (either 4 or 5). -- Imperator3733 (talk | contribs | sysop | Logs: bdpr) 10:20, 10 April 2009 (PDT)
It looks like the topics for 226, other than title, are the same as for 225. Stevenumbertwo 20:24, 11 December 2009 (PST)
Nice to see this previous Recent Shows discussion here. --LukeS 11:43, 29 June 2011 (PDT)
Well, would be nice if users could actually add recent shows which don't have a page yet like SN418... I wanted to add a link to [Triangulation 115] but can't edit/create the wikipage for SN418. Etalas (talk) 03:48, 23 August 2013 (PDT)

However, there appears to be a bug in the scroll up code (up arrow on a Qwerty type keyboard). I found this from a specific keyboard and system of course. It started to occur to me while I was editing the FLOSS wiki pages, and not the TWiL that I'm aware of. It maybe because of the keyboard language or region code... I am not sure what caused the keyboard to malfunction in that way. However, when the code/text to a recent show is copied to be pasted, and pasted, the error remains. It may or may not work from another keyboard/system, I could not test it yet. It requires to move the cursor with the mouse, which still worked at the last time(s) of editing. ty —Preceding unsigned comment added by LukeS (talkcontribs) 11:43, 29 June 2011

Preventing ISP DNS error redirection to ad page

NoScript > Options > Advanced > Untrusted > Forbid META redirections inside <NOSCRIPT> elements. Be sure not to allow any scripting from your ISP. (Won't work for AOL, obviously. :) When you type a mistaken URL, you'll get a message about the *attempted* redirection to the ad page, but it won't happen. That NS message is your error message. No ads -- problem solved. Stevenumbertwo 20:28, 11 December 2009 (PST)

Google DNS?

Isn't Google in the ad business? If they are your DNS lookup, aren't they going to be able to track every website you visit, except possibly those locally cached (on your machine) or perhaps cached at your ISP? What am I missing here, that this isn't a terrible privacy leak? Stevenumbertwo 20:30, 11 December 2009 (PST)

Here's there FAQ, I guess its ultimately up to you to decide. I personally don't think its a huge deal, but others probably do. sharp65 20:52, 11 December 2009 (PST)

Curricula lists

This wiki should have a section of suggested podcast listings organized by topic. As Steve & Leo point out, a lot of what is discussed on these shows are not temporal, but of use for years to come.

I suggest starting a curricula section with a list of topics accompanied by specific podcast episodes which relate to the topics.

Possible topics include:

  • Wireless security
  • Encryption
  • Fundamentals of computing
  • Securing personal computers

As significant news or tech updates occur, specific podcasts (possibly with time ranges) can be added. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Dharris (talkcontribs) 06:06, 2 June 2010‎

Agreed; organizing podcasts by topic would be helpful. Should we do this on a separate page, though? That way, we could organize all of the podcasts, rather than cluttering up the main page. Memetics (talk) 02:07, 1 December 2012 (PST)
