First Impressions

2013-09-07

We have collected some of the feedback about our first episode from around the Internet, and it seems to be quite positive, with many valid criticisms and suggestions.

In the tutorial segment, sorry about all of the bell sounds. We had not realized the sound from that machine was being captured. We had initially wanted to avoid using nano because it is not part of base. The issue with Peter's frame saying "Kris Moore" was also fixed. We just didn't have time to photoshop it out before the release.

Many of you have asked about coverage of pfSense and FreeNAS. We are planning to cover those as well, including interviews with their developers. If you have specific questions you would like asked of the developers, please submit them so we can include them in our interviews.

We do not read the Reddit comments, YouTube comments or JupiterBroadcasting comments. If you want your voice to be heard, email us (preferably) or tweet us (also fine)

Lastly, we've gotten a number of questions about the music used in the intro and bumps. The two songs TJ chose are Growl Enemy by DJ Shandy Kubota and Buzz Steps Get Rave by DJ Sharpnel. They're both independent Japanese artists that he's been a fan of for a long time, and both songs were used with the artists' permission.

Thanks for watching and sending your feedback! We hope to keep growing and improving the show for the whole BSD community.

Allan & TJ
