Leo LaPorte Jumps the shark

I try to avoid opinions here, but the time has come to express one.

I am un-subscribing to some of the TWIT podcast (excuse me, netcasts). Leo has said time and time again that people want a podcast that sticks with them during their commute to and from work – to him, that means 1 hour at the shortest and sometimes 2 hour long podcasts. Sorry, I mean netcasts.

Well, I just can’t take it any more. I want podcasts that teach me about technology, and don’t cover so much of the business side of things. I also want to be able to go thru several in one day. I am going to un-subscribe to TWIT, and keep my subscription to FLOSS, Security Now, and Windows Weekly. This Week in Google has to go, as does This Week In Tech, and Mac Break Weekly.

Goodbye and good luck. As they say in divorces, “Irreconcilable differences”

DNS – where have your users gone?

An interesting concept. What if you had a list of “bad” sites on the internet AND could detect if any of your users had went there…. Well, that would give you a list of potentially infected computers on your network that you should consider scanning…..

Open source home server

I have been very interested in Windows Home Server, but not interested enough to actually do anything about it. HOWEVER, this looks very interesting. It’s basically a Linux alternative to the same solution.
Here’s where I found out about it:
And here’s the link to the project itself:

Online identity and

This is a pretty cool site. You go there, put in your online identity – such as bobnewhart, and it will check, um, “the cool” websites and see if that name is registered.

What’s the point? Well, if you use the same nickname on multiple systems, maybe you want to make sure that no one else uses it. So, you then know which sites you aren’t registered on, and off you go to register…

Also, if you are like lots of people, you’ve got accounts you forgot about. So, this will jogg your memory and you will know where you (unless someone else registered your online name) have accounts.

Finally, it’s a pretty darned good listing of the top picks of “web 2.0” websites… you can just click on the name to go to the site instead of having to rack your brain trying to remember those site names…
