Linux in the Ham Shack Episode #256: Live Q&A

Welcome to Episode 256 of Linux in the Ham Shack. In this episode, we take a slight departure from our normal topics and episode style to try out the features of our Discord server. We invited listeners to log in and participate in the program, bring up topics of discussion and ask questions of the hosts and other guests. We feel this experiment went rather well, generated a lot of good information, and was entertaining to boot. That said, we hope to try more of these in the future. Thank you to everyone who participated and many thanks to everyone who listens.
