NSIR 27 – The NSA is not Kevin Costner

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 27, Peter and Scott look back at some of the massive security fails throughout the year and wonder just how incompetent humans can be with their technology.

NSIR 16 – The Mu of Science

Peter’s cat is a scientist. Not just any scientist, but the Mu of Science. Scott learned typing thanks to computer games. Peter has the Juice Chipper 3000. People who are instant experts in things cause us to rant, as do companies like Google whose mobile sites don’t understand how to pass a URL string. Scott had a scientist cat too, many years ago. Peter passed the CISSP and a peck of pickled peppers too. Monolith 3000 is going to give him a Motorola Admiral, an Android device only a caveman could love. The Mac has Java 6 and 7, and they’re both nicknamed 0day, Java edition.
