hpr2268 :: Fish On!

Released on 2017-04-12 under a CC-BY-SA license.

Whether hitting your local lake or planning a day trip out, it is always good to consult tech that can help out making the trip as successful as possible. Here are the items mentioned in the podcast:

hpr2264 :: At The Library

Released on 2017-04-06 under a CC-BY-SA license.

Check out your local library.

If you are a cord cutter or looking for cheap alternatives to some of the following:

  • Ebooks
  • Emagazines
  • Audibooks
  • DVD's
  • Blu rays
  • CD's
  • And much much more!

hpr2258 :: Killer Keilbasa

Released on 2017-03-29 under a CC-BY-SA license.

I have heard out here a few recipes so I figured I would throw one out here that goes over real well when we make it.


  • 1 Lb. Keilbasa (your choice)
  • 2 TBSP Ketchup
  • 2 TBSP Brown Sugar
  • 2 Table spoons jelly (I have used orange Marmalade, Grape Jelly and various flavors of Jalapeno or pepper jelly)
  • Crock Pot (Slow cooker) or sauce pan
  • In crock pot add Kielbasa sliced in 1/2" pieces
  • Add jelly
  • Add Brown Sugar
  • Add Ketchup

Turn crock pot on medium for 2 hours checking and stirring every half hour. Should be ready in 2 hours.

In sauce pan on medium heat stirring continuously until mixture liquefies and the Kielbasa look done. Probably less than 20 minutes this way but you have to watch it or it burns. This is why we use a slow cooker.

I make 5-7 lbs at a time for a party and usually it is all gone by the end of the party. So I take it that it is a hit. This also is pretty good over rice. Almost Asian style.

hpr2183 :: Data Privacy: Farlands or bust

Released on 2016-12-14 under a CC-BY-SA license.

Thanks to everyone for the emails and the opinion on the "Google It" episode.

I received a lot of emails and comments on my first episode. No one stated they disagreed with me on the opinion I was expressing but changed the conversation to be about their own privacy issues they have with Google's practices.

I wasn't dismissing those who feel Google overreaches in the privacy department. I was stating the fact that they are a very successful company DESPITE a lot of Tech writers and podcasters out here stating they aren't. You can argue the privacy points all you want but the fact is all I was stating was they are successful.

So with that said I weigh in on Privacy and how I see it. Disagree? let me know!

People I mentioned in the podcast:

hpr2167 :: Google It
