Peter Scott joined the Royal Australian Navy as a seventeen-year-old Midshipman, hopeful but uncertain, and over three decades rose to be the professional head of the Navy's elite: the Submarine Arm. During that journey, he served among the dedicated crews of the most highly specialised capability in any Navy in the most complex and demanding environment on earth: the undersea battlespace.He survived and led others through at-sea fires, floods and explosions, and passed the most demanding military command course in the world, Perisher. Peter commanded the longest deployment ever conducted by an Australian submarine and led the Arm through an unprecedented period of expansion. In all, he served in ten submarines and twenty different command and leadership appointments over thirty-four years. A veteran of multiple Special Operations with the Submarine Arm, he also saw war service in Iraq, the Persian Gulf and Afghanistan during 2006 and 2007.He was awarded a Commendation for Distinguished Service in the Australia Day Honours List 2008, having previously been decorated with the Conspicuous Service Cross for achievements in command of HMAS Collins. Peter holds a Master's degree in Coaching Psychology from the University of Sydney and now works as an executive coach to help leaders develop, perform and succeed. He has recently authored a memoir, published by Fremantle Press, on his naval and submarine service - ‘Running Deep. An Australian Submarine Life.'When not writing or coaching, Peter can be found on the trails running ultra-marathons or relaxing at home with his family.Peter's Top Leadership Tip: is to never add to the fears of your people. Rather, give them the courage to face what threatens them. Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.
Ryan returns to Rusty's Garage ahead of the season finale in Adelaide. He reflects on that unforgettable Commodore 1-2 for the team at the end of the Holden era last year and what he thinks their chances are of a Mustang win this weekend having made the big switch to Ford for 2023. This is an incredibly candid chat with some measured observations around the forthcoming offshore parity tests that fans will find very enlightening. Rusty also gets his thoughts on Ryan Wood, the rising star who will make the big step up to the Supercars Championship next year after turning heads in Super 2 this season. Plus, his thoughts on Vegas F1 and some listener questions, including the lingering impact of Covid, a new sport he's diving into for fitness and how being something of a Masterchef helps him escape the pressures of corporate life.

In the month of July 1989 many games were released for the Commodore 64. In episode one-hundred-and-twenty-eight of Zapped to the Past, we conclude our look at some of those games, including the petrifying Project Firestart, the gormless Gilbert: Escape From Drill, and the stupidly hard but pretty Stormlord, and wonder why anyone persists in genetic engineering on a ship called the Prometheus…?

Compara estos coches: Un Opel Manta, un Opel Monza (1982) o un Opel Kadett GSi y compara con algunos de los últimos modelos de Opel como El Astra GSe, el Crossland o el Mokka… ¡si es que hasta el nombre es feo! No digo que los actuales Opel sean malos… tampoco digo lo contrario. Solo digo que Opel ha perdido su personalidad y su ADN. Y os voy a decir por qué. Un tal Adam Opel funda en 1862 la empresa Opel para fabricar primero máquinas de coser y luego bicicletas… y es que no le gustaban los coches. Pero, por fortuna, a sus hijos sí y a la muerte de su padre fundan en 1899 Opel Automotibe GMBH.Nos vamos a ahorrar entrar en detalles de sus primeros pasos en los que llegan a acuerdos con diversas marcas, sobre todo francesas, como Darracq y Renault. Pero la historia de Opel da un giro cuando en 1929 compra la compañía el gigante americano General Motors… compra la marca alemana, pero mantiene su nombre… Además de coches, Opel produjo camiones, como el afamado y robusto Blitz, que eran de tecnología americana y a su vez idénticos a los Bedford británicos. Y pasó algo increíble. Por ejemplo, que Opel llegase a un acuerdo con el mismísimo Führer Adolf Hitler para construir coches, camiones y bombarderos para el ejercito nazi. Y que la Alemania nazi pagase royalties a los norteamericanos para construir vehículos militares. O sea, fabricaron vehículos con la tecnología de tu enemigo, pero les pagaron por hacerlo… ¿es alucinante o no? Pero esto convirtió a las fábricas de Opel en objetivo militar y los bombardeos las dejaron literalmente arrasadas… La actividad no se reanudó hasta 1947, ya acabada la contienda. Para mí la edad de oro de Opel es a partir de ese año de 1947, sobre todo a mediados de los 50 con las heridas de la guerra ya curadas y hasta digamos más o menos finales del Siglo XX. ¿Cuál es el motivo? Pues que Opel combinaba tecnología alemana con la imaginación que en esos años le echaban los americanos al diseño de los coches… y algún motor V8 de “propina”. Una buena combinación que se notaba en la gama que Opel comenzó a desarrollar a partir de los años 60 más o menos. En 1960 la gama Opel alcanzaba modelos de alto nivel, lo que hoy serían Premium como el coupé Kapitan o las grandes berlinas Diplomat, Admiral o el precioso Commodore. Como veis incluso en el nombre, denotan que aspiraban a mucho. En los años 70 aparece un remodelado y precioso Opel Rekord, el D (1972-1977) en mi opinión inspirado en el Commodore. Aparece el Ascona y su derivado deportivo, el Manta, nacido para rivalizar con el Ford Capri, y a fe que lo hizo. ¿Cómo eran esos coches? Por supuesto eran coche robustos, muy robustos, muy bien acabados y de verdadera calidad. Desde luego no podían competir con los “auténticos” Mercedes de esa época, pero si con los BMW y en mi opinión estaban por delante de los VW….En estos años los Opel eran “más coche” que los VW y su gama llegaba más arriba y siempre cuidó mucho el aspecto deportivo. Llega la tracción delantera. En 1979 llega el Kadett D con tracción delantera al que sigue el Kadett E de 1984 con aerodinámica línea. Algunos pensaréis: “Llega la tracción delantera y se va la magia”. Pues no, no es el caso. Los Opel Kadett de la generación E siguen siendo muy distintos a los demás modelos de otras marcas, con mucha personalidad, excelentes acabados y versiones deportivas que se convierten en verdaderos mitos, como el Kadett GSi y más aún el fantástico y potentísimo Kadett GSi 16V. En 1999 llega el declive y eso se nota en la gama que ofrece la marca. Fijaos, entre 1999 y 2012 Opel no deja de perder dinero, llega a perder unos 20.000 millones de euros… Y GM busca soluciones. En 2017 el grupo francés PSA compra por 2.200 millones de euros la marca Opel, incluyendo las fábricas y las marcas Vauxhall, que es con la que se vendían los Opel en el Reino Unido y la marca “GM Financial”. Pero las cosas no acaban aquí. Nace Stellantis, que agrupa al consorcio PSA y al consorcio de Fiat Chrysler Automobiles. La gama actual. En su gama actual Opel trata de “agarrarse” un poco a sus origines sobre todo recurriendo a algunos rasgos estéticos propios de la marca, pero modernizados. Al mismo tiempo que anuncia que a partir de 2028 todos sus coches serán eléctricos… nada nuevo bajo es sol, eso lo van a hacer todos o casi todos. La sede de la marca sigue en Rüsselsheim, pero las decisiones de verdad se toman en la sede de Stellantis, en Ámsterdam. Coche del día. ¿Qué os parece el Opel Commodore de la serie B, aparecido en 1972? La berlina más que el Coupé y si puede ser con el motor 6 cilindros de 2.8 inyección de 155 CV ¿os gusta? Me encantaría tener en mi Garaje Hermético un Opel Monza 3.0 un coche que probé en su momento y me encanto… y que aún se puede encontrar a precios razonables.
This week, MC Lars delves into the vibrant world of video game music, with a particular focus on the groundbreaking Commodore 64 computer system from the 1980s. Joining him is Cowboy Coder, a contemporary musician profoundly influenced by the chiptune sounds of the era. Throughout their conversation, they explore the innovative and iconic characteristics of the Commodore 64, especially its revolutionary sound chip, the SID, which allowed for intricate music and sound effects. Cowboy Coder elaborates on the significant resurgence of the chiptune genre in modern times, especially within the indie gaming scene and electronic music, and the influence this has had on his new EP "Stardust." This collection serves as both an homage to the C64 era and a testament to the enduring legacy of its music, bridging the gap between the nostalgic past and the innovative present. Special Guest: Cowboy Coder.

We are very happy to welcome TheQueenG22 in the new episode of our podcast! She is a content creator with a huge love for anything retro and the TNMT. Being an eighties baby she grew up watching The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoons and playing on the Nintendo Entertainment System. It's all about passion! Enjoy! Interview starts at minute 42:49
Matthew has loved technology since his first Commodore 64, and that passion remains to this day. His days have me integrating enterprise platforms with Octopus, writing guides and books for platforms like Kubernetes, blogging, and training my colleagues, testing bleeding edge open source projects, and contributing to various blogs. Matthew is a 5-star published author and has created solutions that Red Hat felt were worthy of being submitted for a patent. CEOs endorse his development skills. Although he calls himself a developer, Matthew is quite comfortable administering a Linux server, managing a MySQL database, deploying infrastructure with Ansible, reconfiguring a firewall, or just doing what needs to be done to get the job finished. To ensure that he is learning the industry's best practices, Matthew pushes himself to gain certification in technologies that he relies on, with Oracle proudly telling him “You are among the elite 1% of certified Java professionals who have gone on to achieve the Java Enterprise Architect certification.” Topics of Discussion: [3:36] Mike talks about some high points in his varied career. [6:33] What is platform engineering? [8:22] Most jobs fall into the category of DevOps. [10:58] The platform team is looking inward and trying to scale up the team members as opposed to scaling up the technology. [13:08] Has Matt seen any of the job boards coming out with how we need to hire a platform engineering director or platform engineering analyst? [15:08] What does Matt's typical work day and work week look like? [17:02] Guiding customers into creating useful solutions in their own teams. [18:17] Have we figured out the difference between platform engineering and DevOps? [20:05] “Needless creativity.” [23:56] The importance of consistent feedback and improvement. [25:58] Developers have a $0 budget, but an unlimited time budget. [30:55] DevOps teams need to take dependencies seriously. [31:44] How we can standardize and automate some of those internal processes through platform engineering. [35:06] Dependabot.

In this episode, Nabeel Mahmood and Phillip Koblence chat with Rob Coyle, Community Technical Program Manager at Open Compute Project Foundation, who has a rich background in digital infrastructure. Starting in the aviation sector, Rob worked on updating aircraft systems, giving him a strong understanding of electronic and mechanical systems. However, it was the data center industry that truly captured his interest. Over the years, he's taken on various roles, from hands-on engineering to business development. Rob's involvement with the Open Compute Community stands out, especially his work on the OCP Modular Data Center project and the OCP-Ready program. Today, Rob is focused on promoting open-source solutions and sustainability in data centers. He's passionate about sharing his knowledge and helping others in the industry. With a background in hands-on learning, Rob is all about practical solutions and collaboration in the world of digital infrastructure.Nabeel and Phil begin their journey with Rob by going back in time to learn more about his start. As Rob shares that he comes from a family of carpenters Phil is interested to learn if Rob thought he would become a carpenter as well:“I think I always had the inkling that I was going to build something. I'm not a skilled carpenter. I would say, maybe it's good I didn't.”Phil digs a little deeper to find out how aviation came into the picture and Rob shares a story about his family's first computer:“So, I had some old work machine that was a Commodore 64… and they said give it to the kid, let him figure it out. And I had the knack and from there, I've been playing with computers ever since. So then being in the aviation industry, eventually, these kinds of systems and passion for technology and this, I guess, born with the desire to build something pulled me into the data center industry.”Nabeel points out that Rob has had a very interesting career, and he is just starting out. He wants to know what is next for Rob:“It's about learning more and being more resourceful to help people within our industry and take the advantages that I've been given over the last 10 years and this opportunity to participate and find an industry that I truly passionately love is what it's all about for me.”Rob Coyle's episode provides a unique perspective on transitioning from the aviation sector to the dynamic world of data centers. His journey, marked by adaptability and a genuine passion for technology, offers listeners a glimpse into the challenges and rewards of embracing change. For those navigating their own career paths or seeking inspiration in the tech industry, Rob's reflections serve as a testament to the power of perseverance and continuous learning.Stay connected with Rob Coyle on LinkedIn and Instagram for more insights from his vast experiences in the tech landscape.

I bought an old oil painting. It's not a large painting or an important one, but it came from the private collection of the founder of the Whitney Museum.I bought it because I've always admired Cornelius Vanderbilt and his great-grandson, Willie K. Vanderbilt II, and I consider the delightful Gertude Vanderbilt-Whitney, the great-grandaughter of Cornelius, to be the third, truly interesting Vanderbilt.The First Vanderbilt:The fourth of nine children, Cornelius was in the first grade when George Washington died. At sixteen, he borrowed $100* from his mother to buy a little sailboat to haul passengers and freight between Staten Island and New York City.By the time he was forty, the Vanderbilt fleet was hauling passengers and freight to ports all along the Atlantic coast, earning Cornelius the nickname “Commodore.” He then began buying up struggling railroads and turning them around.The difference between Vanderbilt and his competitors was that his boats and trains ran on schedule and the service was always excellent. If Cornelius Vanderbilt was running an airline today, you would no longer dread going to the airport.The Second Vanderbilt:Willie K. Vanderbilt II (1878–1944), was often seen covered in grease with an automobile engine spread out in pieces around him. Young Willie K outran Henry Ford in 1904 to set a new world land speed record of ninety-two miles per hour. Later that year, Willie held the first Vanderbilt Cup Auto Race and singlehandedly changed the course of American auto making.By offering a first prize of about a million dollars (by today's standards), Willie K inspired more than 3,000 entrepreneurs to leap to the task of manufacturing stronger, better, faster cars. The Vanderbilt Cup was discontinued after its seventh year because the crowds of more than 400,000 spectators could no longer be safely controlled.He then built a modest home for himself with an excellent wharf and boathouse. His energy was forever after focused on marine life in all its strange and wonderful forms. Every day was a new adventure in the waters of the deep. Prior to his death in 1942, Willie K. Vanderbilt II discovered and documented sixty-eight species of ocean life previously unknown to science.The Third Vanderbilt:Gertrude Vanderbilt (1875–1942,) married a thoroughbred horse breeder named Harry Whitney when she was 21 years old. Harry was a descendent of Eli Whitney, the inventor of the cotton gin in 1839.Shortly after she got married, Gertrude began studying sculpture in Paris with Auguste Rodin. Her love of the arts, her skill as a sculptor, and her Vanderbilt fortune allowed Gertude to become one of the world's foremost collectors of art. Her artistic fever inflamed New York's Greenwich Village and caused it to burn brightly as a new bohemia in the early 1900s.In 1931, Gertrude donated 600 of her most precious paintings to create the Whitney Museum of American Art.She kept only a few paintings for her private collection at home.Pennie and I plan to hang the one we bought in Alchemy, the Renaissance coffee and cocktail bar being built by our son, Rex. The painting is of two young women in a kitchen, painted in that style for which Frans van Mieris is famous. If those women aren't twins, they are obviously sisters.When you visit Wizard Academy next year, perhaps Alchemy will be completed, and you'll see it there.Aroo,Roy H. WilliamsPS – Of the 111 descendents of Cornelius Vanderbilt, I consider Timothy Olyphant, the actor, to be The Fourth Vanderbilt and Anderson Cooper, the broadcast journalist, to be Vanderbilt #5. You can see the entire list on WIKIPEDIA.
Brian, Meg and Steve take a trip back to their infancy with VHS 85. But because they were but babies, or not even alive, they don't remember all the Mexican Death Gods, Commodore 64 Death Gods, shapeshifters, and lake highlanders. At least one thing has survived from the 80s: Americans with an unhealthy relationship with guns. Anyway here's more horror short films and what we thought about them. Plus we announce our November Showdown category.
