Episode 73 - This Is a Rough One

This is a rough episode. Mark and Josh started off good, but Chris was late, and... after he joined... the wheels fell off. 

Mark ends up cussing, and we had to beep it out or we would have been forced to give a NC-17 rating to this episode. Mark has been reprimanded and a letter placed in his file. Our apologies for his lack of professionalism.

Josh talks about getting more phishing emails with emotet payload and uploading the attachments to virustotal.com. Mark gives Josh a tip on using wheregoes.com to track down Bitly links. Near the end of the episode, Chris and Josh talk about the MidwestTechTalk Technical Conference at Lake of the Ozarks, and Chris announces the newest project for the MWTT/K12TT family... K12TechPro... K12TechPro.com... By K12 Tech Pros, for K12 Tech Pros. It's a website with industry leading tips and discussions about tech items in the K12 world.
