  • RSS 2.0

    The main feed; in a news aggrigator, it's the news items, in a podcast client, it's the media files.

  • iTunes RSS 2.0

    This is the feed for iTunes to load the podcast. Why so difficult and non-standard? Beats me...it's why I use Juice and not iTunes.

  • Comments RSS 2.0

    This is the feed for global comments (any comment made to the board); each entry has a seperate comments feed, too

Despite Obama’s NSA changes, phone records still collected

Filed under: News — Charlie Summers @ 11:37 am

From CNN: Despite Obama’s NSA changes, phone records still collected

From the article: “Someone will still collect records of the numbers and times of phone calls by every American.”

Someone want to try to convince me that metadata on my telephone calls to my father will somehow aid in protecting national security?

Connected TVs, fridge used in global cyberattack

Filed under: News — Charlie Summers @ 11:35 am

From CNN: Connected TVs, fridge used in global cyberattack

From the article: “It’s bad enough that we have to fear identity thieves who are trying to scam us with malicious messages sent from PCs. We now must worry about being targeted by our household appliances, as well.”

I’ve been working with computers since the early 1980s, and was on the Internet when only educational and government was allowed there, and I do not understand the purpose of connecting our refrigerators to the Internet.

How net neutrality fight may change your internet

Filed under: News — Charlie Summers @ 3:53 pm

From CNN: How net neutrality fight may change your internet

From the article: “How would you like to have to pay a fee to be able to stream YouTube videos at full speed? What if you liked downloading music from, say, Last.fm or Soundcloud, but those sites suddenly became infinitely slower than bigger sites like Amazon or iTunes?”

This could happen…and anyone who thinks the “free market” will prevent it hasn’t been paying attention to the unilateral move by the “Big Six” to monitor your Internet traffic, and provide it to an untrusted third party, MarkMonitor. Trust me, without federal regulations, Internet in the United States will undergo a radical, and detrimental-to-the-consumer, change. While other countries have broadband folks in the U.S. can only envy, ours will get much slower…and more expensive.

Cliff Carpenter

Filed under: Old-Time Radio — Charlie Summers @ 1:37 pm

The Friends of Old Time Radio, both the specific and the general, lost one of its greatest friends this past week, Cliff Carpenter. Cliff was a staple of FOTR and other conventions, performing many varied roles. More than that, he was a d*mned nice guy. And there was, in my opinion, no one who could perform a stock western heavy better. After the jump, there are photos from various conventions and even a short tribute video.
