The Perfect Cup of Tea

  • Episode 346
  • May 6, 2014

You don't necessarily need a $13,000 tea machine to make the perfect cup of tea! We also answer a wide assortment of viewer questions from viewers around the world.

We used one of the Logitech C920 webcams for our main camera this week to see if we could get good picture without the flicker.

Topics Covered:

  • Thank you to those who have donated to Category5 TV. We were able to purchase a new microphone thanks to one such donation.
  • You can support the show via our Affiliate Links — if you're going to buy from our affiliate partners anyways, might as well have a portion of the proceeds go toward Category5 TV.
  • {play 7:02}Viewer Comment: I know you love Point Linux. I've been running Debian-based distros for over a year, but recently wanted to try Arch Linux. I found Manjaro, which is a lot easier to setup.
  • {play 12:13}Viewer Question: I just finished watching the Webdev series. Can I download any site's code files to my computer? I don't want to pirate their code, but I'd like to look at it to learn more about web development. Is it considered ethical to do this?
  • {play 19:11}Giveaway: Category5 Premium vinyl stickers.
  • {play 22:43}Top Stories from the Category5.TV Newsroom
    • Samsung must pay Apple $119.6m for patent infringement.
    • Now you can have the "perfect" cup of tea... for $13,000.
      • Robbie attempts to make the perfect cup of tea with a $60 machine.
    • OpenSSL is set to receive a massive injection of cash to support the open source project.
    • Sony has developed a storage tape that holds 85 TB on each cartridge.
  • {play 36:11}Viewer Question: I'm using the compiz effects in Xubuntu and it works, but it breaks my system. What can I do?
  • {play 39:22}Viewer Question: On a previous episode you talked about a user who needed XP to run some specific applications. Could you not just install XP into a virtual machine and then remove the network adapter?
    • Setting up host-only network sharing to a guest virtual machine with no Internet access on VirtualBox.
  • {play 44:08}Viewer Question: What is a good setup for live broadcasting for my church? I have Wirecast setup fine, but I'm having trouble finding a camera that can be ceiling mounted and remotely operated, but still have really good quality. What would work?
  • {play 51:31}Viewer Comment: Switching Windows XP to host-only networking is still unsafe since you can get a virus from a file on your host.
  • {play 53:41}Finally, a co-host is going to switch to Linux! Just not these ones.
  • {play 56:01}Welcome to all our newly registered viewers!
