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.
