Episode 64 - Live from the MidwestTechTalk Security Symposium

This is a bit of a different episode for a few reasons...

1. This is the first time Chris and Josh have recorded together in person.

2. We were recording at a conference... in an empty conference room.

3. We were able to get Ryan from Provision Data Solutions and Chris from Aruba to join us live!

4. This is a super quick episode. Super. Quick.

Episode 63 - An Interview with Josh Renaud

Who is Josh Renaud? You might not know his name, but you probably heard his story. Back in Episode 47 (DESE is Messy), we talked about the response from DESE and Missouri Governor Parson when a reporter from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch pointed out a vulnerability on the DESE website; Josh Renaud is that reporter. In this episode, Josh talks candidly about the events that took place, the responses from DESE and Governor Parson, and the fallout. Recently the Highway Patrol lead investigation wrapped up, and the Cole County Prosecuting Attorney declined to press charges against Josh.

We are very appreciative that Josh was willing to join us and speak so openly about the situation.

Episode 60 - Deer Season in the Middle of the Woods

We are happy to have listener Bill as a special guest tonight. We get an overview of his school district that, as he puts it, "is in the middle of the woods in the Mark Twain National Forrest." As you can imagine that presents a few unique issues that other schools might not have to deal with, including an extended closure due to deer season.

We also talk about puked on Chromebooks, Bill rebuilding his SCCM/Config Manager Server, a quick Erate update, and Josh has a weird Word issue.

Episode 59 - Leave Work At Work, a Lesson Learned the Hard Way

Another episode with a special guest as we have tryouts for our open co-host spot! This week it is Pate's turn!

We talk about our 471's being in "wave ready status," Josh had an issue with a new "open" network he created, and Chris updates us on his search for a new phone system. 

The majority of this episode is spent listening to Pate tell his story about literally dying... twice... in a week, from cardiovascular issues. He walks us through how his life has changed and how the 70+ days spent in hospitals helped him start "leaving work at work" and appreciating time with family. It is a very powerful story from a very powerful guy (He is hooked up to 8lbs of batteries 24/7 now). The guy is a walking miracle.

Episode 58 - The One With Mark…

Listener Mark tries out for our vacant position. Chris tells us how excited he got when he was told he had a "box from Aruba" waiting for him, and it turned out to be 1 AP. He also tells us his woes about his Lenovo 100e Gen2 Chromebooks (and Josh took that as a chance to bag on Lenovo Chromebooks). Josh talks about spending several days in training sessions for lights/sound/rigging for his school's new Performing Arts Center. Chris also talks about a vendor telling him about Cat1 network hardware via MIBs and ERate.
