The JaK Attack! Episode 18.39



Welcome to show number 2018.39!

  • Kelly Mengiun Girl and Jon Wilson are at the mic!
  • 05:30 – Kelly’s Corner
    • Cinch Tents! Pop-up tents with power, climate control, and no mess!
    • Kelly does not like the Digital Trends website
    • Cinch Tents even connect together to make tent cities and have solar panels
    • Hiking and camping with solar panels is becoming very common. Solar panels charge your stuff while you’re walking
  • 20:30 – Jon talks about backups, backups, and backups!
    • SpiderOak did not fare well against Jon’s criteria
      • It has no 2FA (two-factor authentication). In 2018. Srsly.
      • Each device in the account can see and download all the files from every other device in the account. Booooooo for data segregation!
    • iDrive is the winner. It backs up all Jon’s devices (Windows, Mac, iPhone, Linux)
      • iDrive has proper encryption and device separation
      • The 2FA is provided by a separate encryption/decryption password from the login password
      • You also get a sync folder to sync data across all your devices without it counting against your backup quota
      • Annnd the price is right! Click here to check out iDrive (affiliate link)

The JaK Attack! Episode 18.38



Welcome to show number 2018.38!

  • Jon succeeds in being quiet for 32 seconds. VICTORY!
  • Kelly has been prepping for her 9th annual Spring art show on May 6th The main benefactor this year is the Hants Foster – foster houses for the animals.
  • Ms. Casey did not like Kelly’s noodle hat.
  • Jon goes off on a tangent about why sugar is good for kids
  • It’s hard to believe how much Jon knows about credit cards now. Too much PCI, too much PCI!!
  • 10:00 – Jon talks about Epson ecotank printers!
    • Somehow we end up talking about prescriptions, but back to printers
    • Ecotank printers come with 2 years worth of ink
    • Seems reasonable…rated at 150 pages per month, starting at about $240. If it works as described, it would be fairly inexpensive.
    • The big issue is the vast span of time between now and two years from now. How can I be sure I will be able to buy ink in two years?
    • Kelly does not want the inconvenience of purchasing single colours of ink.
  • 26:00 – Kelly’s Corner
  • 35:30 – Cooperstown News
  • 38:00 – Shout Outs and Bork Outs
    • Aldo Shoes gets a shot out from Kelly for amazingly fast delivery.

The JaK Attack! Episode 18.37



Welcome to show number 2018.37!

  • 08:00 – Kelly’s Corner
    • eSight is “Vision for the Blind”
    • The Jibo robot is almost cure enough to spend $900 USD on. Almost.
      • Maybe Jibo isn’t a secret spy.
    • We’re GEN-X!! At least Kelly thinks so.
    • And following up the list of these amazing inventions is some really lame stuff.
  • 26:00 – Jon talks about crypto currency and death
    • When we die, who gets our Bitcoins?
    • “Mining” means you get a reward for doing some work for the cypto currency block chain.
    • Full disclosure: we’re not lawyers. Do not take legal advice from us.
    • The block chain will tell us how much currency is out there, and even what wallets it is in, but not who owns the wallets.
    • Crypto currency always has some kind possibility of being recovered whereas destroyed cash does not.
    • Only the big guys can mine new coins now.

    • There’s a website dedicated entirely to preventing rats from eating your car wires. It’s literally named https://www.howtopreventratsfromeatingcarwires.com
    • Car manufacturers made car wire insulation out of soy. So they rats eat it. Yummy.
    • Kelly has uncovered the conspiracy. Rats have been eating wires long before there was soy

    • 3D printing is really a hands-on hobbyist tool. It’s not something you can take out of the box, and start printing stuff
    • Jon uses TinkerCAD.com to create things, Cura under WINE (Linux image does not work)to slice designs, and Octoprint to do the actual printing
  • 33:00 – Cooperstown News
    • Jon laughs a little too hard at the story of a man charged in Church arson.
