In a very fun show, Paul & Chris get chat with the hilarious and enthusiastic Taryn Arnold from Patreon. She joins the show to talk the art of mouth foley, the right amount of internet stalking, teen crushes and Patreon page success.
Just. Plain. Fun. Hope you didn’t scroll past this episode because Taryn is hilariously cool. And, we’re not just saying that because she’s our first patron. Be sure to check out Thetarynarnold on twitter, Calling All Creators and Patreon. Thanks to Taryn for hanging out with the guys! Of course, thank you for listening.
It’s part 2 with Jonathan Killearn, a classically trained musician navigating the competitive new music distribution world of the Internet. Is it crazy to pursue a career in creative arts? The conversation is about audience building, talking to nobody, and music communities online; quiz time teaches us all about Gary Busey & Nick Nolte. Part 1 can be found here.
Jonathan is sharing his music via lead sheets in LilyPond format on GitHub.
The new season has started and the guys are dropping science! Well, actually they’re catching up with each other and you. Listen to learn how Val Kilmer could have saved the world from evil cable bundles if his Amtrak train hadn’t been delayed.
Home internet in Canada is just like mobile data, they charge per usage! What the hell? Look out US. Telus Internet Plans or Shaw.
Coming soon, Paul will be fortunate enough to get with a surviving local telco for internet, AcenTek.
If you want to support local Internet companies in Canada, see if TekSavvy is in your area.
Paul & Chris are back! They’re kicking it old school. Join them as they go to warp speed. Well, just as soon as they can remove all the Google bloatware from the engineering software and find a cool external hard drive.
Here’s a new season of the Sauce but what about Film Frown?
Chris used Homebrew & the Cask to install all his applications on his Mac during his clean install. Lifehacker has a decent guide.
Little Snitch is a great firewall to tell you which applications are trying to connect to the web. For example, Apple location services on want to connect to the internet every 10 seconds. That seems wasteful on a desktop.
Chris reviews his experience with MailPile. Then he shares that he moved to Airmail.
Checking system stats on your Mac? iStat Menus is great or there’s GeekTool. Less expensive Monity is another option, but it doesn’t do temperature. If you are just concerned with temperature, there’s TG Pro.
Paul has Automatic connected to his OBD-II port in his vehicle. He can track his car’s health with his Apple Watch or his phone.
External hard drives? Lacie makes decent drives, but Chris & Paul prefer enclosures with fans, if it is a rotating drive and not an SSD. Chris has Vantec cases for his externals. Paul recommends buying in pairs for your backup.
What’s on your external? Chris has some work resources like Death To The Stock Photo images. We interviewed one of the minds behind that site once.
