December 2 Clubcast is Now Available: Ninth meeting: VPNs (again) Roku/Netflix, ChromeBox/Book, Smart TVs, Black Friday sales, and even a Spanish lesson at the beginning

December 2nd, 2014 by

Hi Clubbers,

I hope everyone had a good holiday. I hope it was ful of friends, family, and turkey.

We started recording our meeting a little early today. The conversation is very random and includes some Spanish lessons. If our pre-meeting dialog is too much for you, then just fast forward to the start of our meeting (at 7mins, 45seconds.)

We had a lot of people join us this morning. Even my folks showed up. And, for no agenda, we sure found a lot to talk about. Chromebox, Chromebooks, Roku, FireTV, Chromecast,  smartTV, Black  Friday shopping, VPNs, PhotoShop, and even more.

It was an awesome ninth meeting. If you missed it, then you can hear the recording from the link below.

You can join us at Tequila’s or you can tune in on Tuesdays (9:15-10:15am AZ time) with our chat-room and live audio stream found at http://sccClub.org.  If you want to receive this recording in iTunes then search the iTunes store for ‘The San Carlos Computer Club’.

Thanks for listening. Please leave comments and rate us in iTunes.

Tech On!

November 18 Clubcast now Available: Seventh meeting: Showed off the latest Arduino project, Some Home automation topics, VPNs again and ALWAYS, and lots of other stuff

November 18th, 2014 by

Hi Clubbers,

Took me a little longer then normal to get this one out. The meeting was good fun. I am always surprised by what great discussions we can have without having any kind of plan or agenda for the meeting.

Again, thanks for the patience with my Arduino obsession. I think enough people are interested that I will continue to bring in new projects for show and tell. We won’t be using a lot of time on Arduino, but I will keep you up to date on my progress, and we will continue discussing home automation/Smart home concepts in our meetings.


Please come to our website sccClub.org and give use comments/feedback.

See you guys on Tuesday.

Tech On!

November 11 Clubcast now Available: Sixth meeting this season: Some VPN encryption, Some Tech history, a few questions answered, and some ideas for Topics in the Future

November 11th, 2014 by

Hi Clubber,

We were off to a late start yesterday. We had to solve some internet problems at Tequila’s before we were able to get an audio stream running. After that we had a pretty good meeting.

We didn’t have a stream until about 9:30, but our conversation started a little before that. That, said conversation, is some what mangled nonsense, that was captured while we were working on the internet problem. So just fast forward if you can’t take it. Things go back to normal 5mins in.

I hope you enjoy this recording.

Please come to our website sccClub.org and give use comments/feedback.

You can find us in the iTunes Store (search: The San Carlos Computer Club.)

I see you guys next Tuesday.

Tech On!

We had a smaller group then normal, but still some good conversation. I talked about website changes,  and we had some interesting questions about how to store computers in the off season. Also, talked a bit about free to air TV. All in all it was a pretty good meeting. If you missed it you can listen here:


Also, We decided to postpone meetings until after the holiday. The next meeting will be January 7, 2014.

So…Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

I’ll see you all next year.



Club Meeting! December 03, 2013 Black Friday Frauding, VPNs, and routers oh my!

December 3rd, 2013 by

Hi everybody,

I’ve had a lot going on. Our daughter Viviana is turning 6 this Saturday, and we’ve been getting prepared. Also, I did a major change to the B&B (anchoragewalkabout.com) website. I have switched it from using static html pages to php pages (it’s  a pain, and if it all goes right, nobody should see any difference at all…hmmm?…why am I doing that? there was good reason, but after four hours of debugging, I lost the reason)…I finally finished, and I was right. Everything looks the same (or only slightly glitchy.) Also,  we had the pleasure of traveling with Russ and Lynn to Hermosillo for immigration papers thanks to Yuya (I’d lost without her.) Anyway, my point is that I’ve been a little busy and that’s why this last meeting is late.

We had a good discussion. We talked about the Black Friday inferior TV products article from USA Today. We answered some good questions on VPNs services and hardware.

Check it out.


Please comment on anything you find helpful.
