Sadly there is no episode of Corner Geeks this week so we present Gagalcast: because we all fail now or then. Basically Gagalcast is random discussions before or after Corner Geeks recordings or just random discussion. This episode was recording after Corner Geeks 7: The Brunei Apple App Store at Patisserie in Gadong.

There are several videos to be released so stayed tuned and we should be back next week!

Hak5 stickers!

Look what came in the mail today!

hak5 stickers!

All this and to top it off a nice personal touch of a hand-written message on the back:
darren's sign off'

So anybody who wants some technolust do considering donating. So here’s a hats off to the folks at Hak5 for 3 great seasons of Hak5. I remember the days of watching back when I was still in Singapore studying… aaahhh the memories.

So for all the Hak5 hacklings around the world, we’re reminding you… Trust your technolust!

P.S. Anybody want stickers?
