MacVoices #17197: Jeff Butts’ Terminal Tinkering Goes Beyond The Terminal

Jeff Butts has a new podcast for The Mac Observer. The first episodes of Terminal Tinkering are out, and Jeff joins us to talk about the kinds of things he has covered, what is in store for viewers, and why the name might lead you to an incorrect conclusion. He gives us a look behind the scenes at how he records, edits, and produces the show, his plans for the future, and why his unique background makes him the perfect host for this subject matter.

Today’s edition of MacVoices is supported by MacVoices Magazine, our free magazine on Flipboard that helps you do more with your Apple tech.

Jeff Butts was a nerd long before they got their revenge. He’s been voiding warranties since the early 1980s, when he took apart his uncle’s 286 to try coaxing a bit more power out of the Hercules graphics controller. Either by luck or skill (or both), nobody ever knows he’s voided their warranty because Jeff knows and lives by the most important rule: don’t get caught. These days, when Jeff’s not voiding warranties, he’s writing about voiding warranties. Follow him on Twitter or Facebook.
