LN-QRM #29: Busy Summer

Recorded 8/17/2011

Hosts: Barry J and Michael

I have been doing a lot of business travel the past few months. As a matter of fact, I’ve been on travel more than I’ve been home! That’s why the podcast faded. But we are back and the first thing we have to do is post the handful of podcasts we did do, but I didn’t get a chance to produce and post. So watch the feed. It should be busy for the next couple of days as I try and get caught up, followed by a brand new podcast recorded last wednesday.

DC trip extended to two weeks
Guess where Barry is going next week? (Hint: See above)

LN-QRM #27: Hangin’ Out

We tried something new tonight. We used the “Hangout” feature of Google+. A “Hangout” is a feature of the new Google+ social app that lets up to ten people video chat back and forth. We thought it would be a good replacement for Skype, which has been getting worse and worse with each new version. For a beta product, Hangout worked fairly well.
As you can see, Michael is missing from this podcast. He was on a well deserved vacation. But, in his place… BARTY!!! He was able to make a rare Sunday appearance and we’re glad to have him back.
That brings us to another topic. We are moving the show’s live stream to Wednesday nights at 7:00 pm EDT. This seems to be a better time for all the guys.

I know, it’s been over a month since the last podcast. Jash, Michael and I have been busy. So we decided to make it up to you with this long…. long podcast featuring the Brockway Mountain Midnight Pizza Party. It’s an annual event up in Yooper Country that Michael and his family go to every year. But… don’t worry. We still get enough geeky tech-talk in. Enjoy.

LN-QRM #20: Snow, Snow, Snow

OK, when this was recorded, New Hampshire got slammed with a huge snow storm. This on top of the three feet we already had on the ground. This, just after I came back from spending a week down South Carolina and Florida where it was sunny and 81 degrees every day. It sure makes on think about moving. But I’ll change my mind when summer gets here and the temperature here will be in the 70’s and down south… well, you know. We have a lot of topics n this show. Enjoy…
