Not Speeding In Reverse is two village idiots just having a blast. Peter and Scott talk about random current topics ranging from martial arts, self-improvement, movies, and the latest computer security fails.
In episode 26, Peter and Scott wake from a four year coma to find things have gotten worse than they ever could have imagined. How to cope? Beginner’s mind, friend. Beginner’s mind.

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.
Scott was incredibly fortunate recently as he was allowed to guest on the Three Geeky Ladies Podcast for their Breaking Bad episode. It was fun, and here it is, dropped into the Not Speeding in Reverse feed for your listening pleasure.
Peter gets his Yeti working. Scott and Peter laugh about the most lighthearted of topics, the NSA. Scott talks about cycling he did do, and cycling he didn’t do. 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. Finally, Marc Ensign has a story about a terrible email that reveals how NOT to connect with others.
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.

Steve Gibson guesses how Prism works on Security Now, and he’s ACTUALLY RIGHT for once!!
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.
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.

The secret word is SQUIRREL. Scott, Keeme, and Patrick talk about the Zodiac killer, guns, and some pretty horrible recent events. But first we talk about Mac Skype versions. We also rant about American made automobiles, and pretty much offend everyone. Sorry. Also, Mac mini and Macbook Pro hard drive upgrades, and Keeme has an iMac with no optical drive, conspiracy theorists, and hamburgers guaranteed to cause a heart attack. Twitter, Facebook, and App.Net are different in response to news.
