    Audience Questions


    1:50:52 Kpovoc Asks


    I’d be curious to know how often your clients have problems that might be easier solved by a custom written software vs finding an applicable existing FOSS solution?
    Many times combining/modifying open source solutions works best

    1:54:30 Tony Asks


    I'd be interested in knowing if you charge customers extra if they want to make changes to an already working solution. Would that be a charge to not have them abuse your time/technician time?
    Managed Service Contracts
    Hourly Service
    What is your most popular service?
    Access Controls and Cameras
    Networking

    Teach the user
    Help them understand the limitations of their technology

Music+Connoisseur ,

Great show, call in tech support eh

Love the show, topics, and Noah’s enthusiasm but my biggest gripe is the call in tech support calls. I mean it’s nice to have a tech support help line but I feel it really detracts from the show. It tends to interrupt the topics at hand and cuts the show short since it’s restricted to one hour because it’s a live radio show.

I’d love a Ask Noah Show Offline Edition where we can delve into the topics at hand.

netherland again ,

Not boring, deep insight

Love the show, every topic touches on things that are very relevant to me and my future setup.

JayFire-pop-Yo-Tire ,

Amazing

I'm a Fedex Express driver in Grand Forks and stumbled across this show on the radio one night recently driving home.. Just a month ago I purchased a System 76 laptop after getting fed up with windows so this show immediately sparked my interest when I heard it on the radio. I went home that night and looked to see if Ask Noah had a podcast and Bam! Here it is! I went back and downloaded the first 3 episodes and I'm playing catch up but my first thoughts is "Wow! This is good!".

I love Noah's enthusiasm and his passion for Linux and he appears to have a vast amount of knowledge he is taking the time to share with whoever wants to hear, that in itself is pretty awesome!!

I'm going to keep downloading the old podcasts and until I'm current but so far what I'm hearing..I'm loving it!

Keep up the great work Noah along with everyone behind the scenes pitching in to make this happen.
