Podcast: Play in new window · Download

35:00 – Ruben's Monologue (The SCO Unix LAMP stack, useless Dell laptops, rams in comedy clubs, people who drive 4WDs), the Commonwealth Games have started in Melbourne, why I envy those who've only lived in one country, The Top 5 (signs you're listening to too much of the Crap & Stuff podcast), the South Australian state elections (how backwards Family First is, why Liberal is less than desirable and why I'll be voting for The Greens), and the facinating decline of the Kowloon Walled City in Hong Kong in the late 1980s.
