Tech podcast 319 is now out

Hello folks,

Tech podcast 319 is now out. We’ve got quite a bit of news, notes, a braille transcription update, and some commentary in regards to a Security Now episode dealing with sharing files and services out there. RSS is here or you can listen to the show on Live Wire on my box: 2276. I hope to have another podcast out very soon. Thanks for listening!

Tech podcast 318

Welcome to the tech podcast, this is show 318. I’ll be in the process of reloacting, so this may be the last podcast until the relocation is complete. I’m hopeful that the relocating process will go well, and I’ll be available through contact methods mentioned throughout the program should you have questions and concerns.

<

ul>

  • We talk about URL shorteners. Cutt.us and similar services can be a target of spam. This service, along with a couple of others, allow the visitor to report suspicious links. These services allow the shortening of long URL links to shorten one for sharing. Reporting suspicious URL’s may be a start, but I’m going to try and get recaptcha on one of my biggest sites to see if it can curve this problem.
  • In segment 2, we finish the talking of shorteners by talking briefly about another service similar to the one I link above, and then we demonstrate braille 2000’s grade relaxer. This particular part of the application was already working, but some accessibility fixes were made, and with the beta, I present to you how the relaxer can be used in a classroom setting.
  • We take a song break. In the last segment, we had relaxed Gokul Salvadi to demo how this is done. I thought the music would be perfect to play one track, and you can leave your thoughts.
  • Finally, Equifax and Myspace are back in the news. When Myspace Was King, Employees Abused a Tool Called ‘Overlord’ to Spy on Users from blog The Technology blog and podcast | <a href=”Former Equifax exec sentenced to 4 months in prison for insider trading related to data breach
  • Our contact information is at the end of the program. I’m hoping that the relocating process goes well for me, and if something big comes out, I’ll do my best to get it out quickly. If not, then I’ll be back once I’m settled in. Thanks for listening, and thanks for your continued support.

    Tech podcast 317

    Tech podcast 317 is now out on the RSS feed. I’m not sure if we covered the braille transcription software with grade relaxer in the segment with Braille 2000, but if I did not, I plan to do so in a future podcast. I link to it in the show notes, thinking I did, but I know I covered other stuff with the software which was minor accessibility stuff with the speech aspect of things.

    In any case, Braille 2000’s segment is short, but we’ve got a bunch of other stuff that is covered, including a very interesting article Phishlabs has in regards to the phishing sites themselves being more secured than years past.

    Below, please find the show notes, and thanks so much for listening to the podcast!

    RSS


    Welcome to tech podcast 317.

    • How is our security as of late? Is the landscape good or bad? What are your thoughts on it?
    • Braille 200 has a very interesting update. Braille 2000 has interesting childrens program, made accessible is the article, and I talk about my work with this area of Braille 2000. Here is the Braille 2000 category that you can link to on the blog. It is the entire history of what I’ve been up too with Bob. We may have talked about this, but there are other odds and ends we tlak about if this was not talked about in this segment. If not, and you want me to cover it in detail, I can do that. The segment is Braille 2000 where we are at this point.
    • Jaws gets an update that fixes a major bug in Adobe. It also fixes other odds and ends as well, not just that. blog post for those who need it.
    • Mirai and Trickbot are back in the news. Blog post on the topic.
    • I saw an article on email and 5 signs on what to do if its hacked. Blog post.
    • Phishing sites and their trends. What do you think will happen? Phish Labs blog post has all the juicy details.
    • Michael in Indiana has a Philmore update. A month or so ago, Philmore Productions voice mail went down due to weather related activity. Its been a month or there abouts, and its still mostly down. The good news, Philmore did use an array, so the data isn’t lost, but the web site remains down. Listen to all the details.

    Contact information is available at the end of the program. Enjoy!

    Hello folks, welcome to the tech podcast, podcast 316. On this podcast, we cover We Transfer. This is a service that was used to deliver files to me, and I actually like its interface. If it is right, I could see myself paying for it, but right now, I don’t need to do that. I talk about this service and what it has to offer. Next Braille 2000 V2.274 take 2: we’re getting better is the accompanying article and I talk about a new menu that will appear once the talking edition becomes available to the general public hopefully very soon.

    Podcast 315 update

    Hi all,

    After doing some thinking after sending an email to Anchor, I tried something which allowed me to log in and get the podcast on the RSS feed for everyone. While the wetransfer link is still good, people are now able to get the podcast through RSS. Mixcloud and I need to date to determine where I am uploading, because i stopped using it for some reason. I want to be able to provide people options, and Mixcloud is one. I will do that soon, and it will also be updated accordingly. Thanks for your continued support. I hope to be back real soon with another podcast.

    Due to a technical error, the RSS feed seems to not allow me to log in to upload. We’re working on it. This we transfer link is a link to a 7 day download of the podcast which includes the show notes along with it. We’re covering a lot for this podcast, so why not get your copy?

    I’ve already got an email in to anchor to find out why I can’t log in. My other account is also effected, and I even cleared history and cookies with no results. Thanks for your continued support.

    The Technology blog and podcast, podcast 314

    Holy crap, I forgot to post about tech podcast 314’s release. I don’t even think its on mixcloud yet. Me and mixcloud need to have a date, but the podcast is out. I’ve also neglected this blog as well. I’ve been reading a lot, but then quit. But I’ll try to be better.

    Here are the notations about the program.

    RSS Mixcloud


    On this podcast, tech moving too fast: do you think it is? Next, a braille transcription fail, big time. Gaelynn Lea, an artist on CD Baby, is disabled and yet involved in touring and more. I pick a track from this artist and we feature it. Finally, a tech talk dealing with a wristwatch to aid the blind and others in navigation. Search the tedtalk out on Youtube or Ted’s website. CD Baby page for Gaelynn Lea so you can read more about her.


    This program was released on the 14th.

    Tech podcast 313: Wipro, Braille 2000, 2019 Phishing report, and more

    RSS and Mixcloud have copies of the show. Here are the show notes and articles.


    Welcome to the technology blog and podcast, podcast 313. We’ve got a lot for you in a wide variety of news, notes, Braille 2000 stuff, and more.

    • Wipro (pronounced We Pro) is in the news big time. There are three articles which are talked about in the first segment.
    • The 2019 Phishing Trends and Intellegence Report is out. Some very interesting stats within this article that I discuss.
    • Julian Assange was recently picked up for violating the CFAA according to a report. I thought I saw multiple articles, but one article was retrieved. I talk about this development.
    • Braille 2000 is getting ready to release their next version. In a segment, I talk about the Braille 2000 percent codes in general, highlighting the entire list that I have, skipping some which aren’t available yet. They’re talked about in passing, but no code is discussed in full. The web site has removed Version 1 of the software, and version 2 that has been ran is now on the home page.
    • Two ted talks about seizures and heart attacks are talked about and the full talks are played in full. You can search the talks separately through YouTube on the ted talks channel.

    The articles dealing with Wipro are hard to swallow. Clearly, nobody knows what is happening, but hopefully they’ve found the issue and corrected it. Being an IT company, you need to understand these things and do proper PR. The PR here was not good, and I’m sure they’ll feel the reprocussions for awhile.

    A list of articles that accompany the podcast follows:

    Enjoy the podcast, it lasts 72 minutes long. Thanks for listening and make it a great day!

    If you need links and or a phone number, contact me.


    Welcome to the technology podcast, podcast 311. We’ve got a very interesting braille transcription update which makes me very excited to push forward in this course.

    Tech podcast 310: Phones, privitation of messages on voice mail, and more

    Edited to fix HTML, and to remove the listen line because the show has been removed by request.

    RSS and Mixcloud have the show.


    Hello everyone, welcome to podcast 310. On this podcast, we’ve got a very diverse podcast for you.

    • Bullying, is it a disability problem? I talk about this again in a different way. I talk about this in a way where one might be deleted for no reason, including but not limited to false information, information that may be old, and other aspects of the article. Bullying, Is This Just a Disability Problem? longevity.media May 2, 2017
    • Privitizing messages in voice mail, is it a big deal? Live wire made an announcement and change in regards to marking messages private which was received well. In today’s day in age, it is easy to take any private message and make a copy of it if you know how. Good idea? Bad idea?
    • Why Phone Numbers Stink As Identity Proof is talked about next. This article was written by Krebs on Security on the 17th of March. It argues in part that giving out our mobile telephone numbers may be more of a problem, and we should use services including but not limited to Google and disposable numbers from Services like Text Now. There are several people I know that have used, or are using the service in different ways. I’m sure there are other services that can be used too.
    • 51 Critical Cyber Bullying Statistics in 2019 is linked from the blog to an article sent by Someone named Caroline Black. She linked in an email to a post of mine from last year where bullying and cyberbullying was talked about. This article has some very chilling stats, and its talking to others and bringing awareness to the problem that will solve it. I talk about some of the statistics within this article and have invited Caroline to the podcast to discuss this.
    • IOS and Mac have updates is a short segment. In this segment, the fact that IOS and Mac have updates is mentioned with info on how to find the posting where you can learn more.
    • Finally, Text Reminders is talked about. There is no demo, but a description of the service, the fact it isn’t free, and the basics about it. I worked with the company behind this to make the site accessible. The service works, and I find it valuable.

    As in all podcasts, contact information including Email, Imessage, and Text Messaging options is given at the end. If you’re listening by phone, leave public feedback, and if you want, have it aired on an upcoming podcast by letting me know. The podcast lasts over an hour in length. Thanks so much for listening, and make it a great day!
