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.
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 is joined by his friends Patrick and Keeme. One lives in Alaska and works on the pipeline. One lives in the desert of Arizona and doesn’t work on the pipeline. We talk about cycling encounters with moose, opening second run theaters in Eagle River, Alaska, recording stories of yourselves for all to hear, crazy Arizona windstorms, how oil companies can be greedy, what iPads and mobile phones they like, and more.
Scott and Peter watch in amazement as small children bike past them at 25 mph. Siri tries to open the Gresham. Autocorrect embarrasses parents. Peter has a shoulder injury. Pakistani food. Who is going to be responsible for drones flying in the US airspace? Peter’s cat has lap radar. New Hampshire makes animals and people barf. Don’t feed dogs cake before road trips.
