Issue #218: Navigation – Free services that extend OpenStreetMap

A free mapping service is a wonderful thing, but you might not find all the information you need in OpenStreetMap's standard view. A number of other free mapping projects extend and enhance OpenStreetMap data to add new features and services. This month, we tour some useful mapping tools based on OpenStreetMap.

Other highlights include:
* Kernel Disposal – Nuke those old kernels taking up space on your hard drive. * Out of Memory Killer – This important component keeps the kernel from running out of memory – but is there a better way?
* Makerspace – This month includes a lesson in wearables.
* Linux Voice – Learn about the dark market for security exploits.

On the DVD: Ubuntu 18.10 and Fedora 29
