In this podcast, the Radio Free HPC team honors the Festivus tradition of the annual Airing of Grievances. Our random gripes include: the need for a better HPC benchmark suite, the missed opportunity for ARM servers, the skittish battery in the new Macbook Pro, and a lack of an industry standards body for cloud computing.
After that, we each share our Catch of the Week:

- Shahin was intrigued by the recent Leap Second that keeps our time in sync with the universe.
- Rich points us to the intriguing SAGE project for Exascale that using something called Precipient Storage.
- Dan is struggling to process his video files now that he has moved to a 4K camera.
