We start off today with a bit of health talk and how tech has affected our health. https://baseline.google.com https://www.twilio.com/ https://www.uber.com/ During Alan’s issues, Facebook had its own issues. We discuss what happened and the security issues this brings up for many companies. Speaking of Facebook, there have been some recent studies showing how much information […]

We’ve had a week off, which gave us plenty to discuss. Al went to the Strong National Museum of Play. https://www.museumofplay.org/ We discuss how preserving these items is important and how we can use technology to keep them alive. He also played on the oldest mini-golf course. Then he visited Cornell University. Alan has also […]
Al is getting a COVID check today, which starts the episode. We intended to talk about several things, but of course we flit from subject to subject and land on Marketing. Luckily, we use this to jump into toys of our childhood. If you love lego, skittleball, gyroscopes and more of the toys of the […]
A couple weeks ago, we discussed old tech. This week it’s new tech – starting with Windows 11. We do delve into some old tech talking about system code and driver code, but it is part of our talk about how Windows 11 security requires a system to have certain chips. https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/windows-11 This leads us […]
Some recent health issues – root canal and broken bone – lead to a great discussion on improvements in health care. Things like using your own blood to rebuild bone so it isn’t rejected. We take a bit of a detour into the paranormal and what is science and what isn’t science. This leads us […]
We reminisce about old tech programming compared to newer programming. Full of tech stories which I’m sure some of you can relate to. Al has fun name dropping some very smart people. We talk about procedural programming, gui programming, and the shift to more modern programming. https://www.amazon.com/Tog-Interface-Bruce-Tognazzini https://gdevelop-app.com/ If you’re interested in seeing and hearing […]

Is Orange really Green? Maybe we don’t answer that question. But we do talk about the gifts big Al received for his birthday – including a snazzy green shirt, that he’s wearing. Do we stay on the birthday topic? No, of course not. You should know us by now. The topics meander from there. Intelligent […]
Kathy is the author of Creepy Cat – a collection of tales about her travels to spooky places. She talks about her love of horror, starting with Dark Shadows. Kathy has been all over the world and regales us with several stories of her travels, including one that really freaked her out. https://madmimi.com/p/ddc0a11?pact=22377-161133657-12808802593-4203277dd704ac42f834cd0470bb7dd1309e7ce1 Upcoming appearances: […]

We start off today after having not been able to troubleshoot tech problems. As Al says, two Codger Alpha Geeks that are usually the ones to fix things, can’t figure this out. Very frustrating. Talking about tech support is natural because we’ve done it for so long. Naturally, one tech item leads to another – […]

We do a catch up with a bunch of news. Of course it’s not just the news, we pontificate on each item. Our big Clued Up event from last Saturday was canceled due to rain. We hope to do it next year. Next, Ted Sikoara has another Kickstarter with the latest issue of Bloom. Alan […]
We have an upcoming, outdoor Clue type mystery game this weekend we are playing in Cleveland. Fun times running around solving things with friends. Stephen talks about the great book/audiobook Console Wars. It details the struggle between up and comers Sega and the entrenched behemoth of Nintendo. If you enjoy video games and remember the […]
Stephen spent the weekend at a writer’s retreat in Salem, MA, so we start off discussing that and lead into talking about witch hunts in general. Lots of fun facts when talking about the whole Salem witch trials. Some of those facts are how we’ve learned new info, though it’s not reflected in our history […]
We hit the topic – Bam Bam Bam One of the first items of discussion is books, and particularly the two that I am reading – Foundation by Isaac Asimov and The Silent Corner (Jane Hawk) by Dean R. Koontz. We discuss not only how different they are because of genre but from being written […]

Now that the weather is nice there are several naturous hiking adventures we reminesce. Alan has gotten a new garage – but what an adventure. There are some cool geek things in modern construction that we discuss. Plus, how contractors in that world are different than how we are as computer consultants. We can’t go […]
Today’s theme seems to be fun and wonder. These are things that kids have but adults tend to lose and we wonder why. We start off talking about Stephen’s brother in law getting a Steve Austin (Bionic Man) doll from Gina, and he loved it. The memories of childhood open you back up to the […]
We have another special episode that we recorded live. The topic is working from home, which we have quite a bit of experience with. In the past year, more people have started working from home and discovered there are good and bad aspects to doing so, and we discuss those.
We tie everything together nicely today – how tech has changed and that has changed the games we play, but we can still play old board games using Tabletop Simulator. And with Apple’s Developers Conference next week, there will be new high end Apple tech to discuss. We also fit in a discussion on popular […]
As usual, we discuss several topics – but a lot of it is around what we plan to do for Memorial Day. Alan is going to the comedy museum in Jamestown, NY. Stephen talks about the parade and ceremonies to honor those that have died while serving. We have a multilayered conversation about the possibility […]
