We chat about Sonos online, iPad1 still running Netflix, Security Cameras, AT&T neighborhood discrimination, Miles Working and work spouses, software testing including at Netflix, Miles’s open source software projects: format base, m-text, and filesystem virtual tables for PostgreSQL. We also chat about home storage with NAS or not, and some GeekSpeak navel gazing around Date vs Episode numbering.
