NSIR 25 – It’s Only a Flesh Wound

Peter lost a limb, or nearly. The launch code is 00000000. You do not want all your employees to have the same passwords. Peter has a new bank account that pays him $20 per month. I don’t know why his password is my daughter’s name. Peter has a PSA. Peter has a Nest, a WeMo, a Sonos, a Roomba, and a Hue. Some of them work. Some don’t. Scott counts listeners and finds no one really is listening anymore.

Peter had some phone company failures. Scott and Peter start looking at spam subscription web sites, which leads inevitably to a conversation about John McAfee’s latest product, D-Central.

NSIR 22 – Dead for 42 years

Scott runs out of topics in 9 minutes, but wanted to podcast for Peter’s benefit. Did you know your neighbor has been dead for 42 years? Don’t save the canary, fix the coal mine. Scott thinks he’s almost ready for this year’s Portland Century. Cats shed a lot of fur, and Peter and Scott want to upload their every communication directly to the NSA for tax credits.

NSIR 20 – Zero Moments of Truth

Martin wants to build us a web site, Obama writes to Verizon customers, McAfee tells us how to uninstall what used to be his product, and Peter trains for the century. The bike ride kind of century, not the “when I was a boy” type of century.

NSIR 19 – Make Sure It Requires Flash

Scott gets spam and the spammers take his responses a little too seriously. Robin has little ones. Peter fired Biff over two years ago. Siri doesn’t even know who Peter is, or anything about him, and can’t find the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum. Scott is a shipping clerk now, but he can’t seem to ship anything. Don’t ship to Russia. Peter creates a clone to help him go from Taiwandows to normal Windows. We have a pledge drive to get Peter better audio recording software.
