    How about listing time (minutes & seconds) for topics for those of us who do not have time to listen to whole program and would just like to go to topics of interest.

    Glances also has a server mode so that you can connect to it from a remote computer, where glances is started in client mode.

    The same kind of thing can also be done by glances in web mode, then any device (computer to mobile) can view it by going the the machine’s IP in a browser. This mode also exposes a web API, and I recently created a scope for the Ubuntu phone that queries this API and displays some of the data in the scope (although it still misses some features).

    When I got to two thirds of the way through the podcast it looped back to the beginning.

    For the kids learning programming, to have the quick on speed, I’ve tried this on a couple of school kids and they really liked it. My children 6 and 8 walked trough the course in no time.
