Episode 99: Starting Back Up


Thomas recently finished a seasonal side job as a glorified proof reader for a local tax preparation business. Suffice it to say, there's a reason such businesses do well as home based software packages aren't designed for certain things. He also recently obtained a Raspberry Pi 3 as a gift from his dad and will be setting it up in the near future.

He's also kicking Striaght Talk to the curb as a new customer of Verizon. The phone? Galaxy S7. The data speed? Oh my...... His reasons for doing so are as follows:

  1. MVNO's like Straight Talk may not necessarily support upgrading Android on their phones.
  2. Mobile hotspot is not always available.
  3. Lower priority regarding phone calls as opposed to being a mainstream carrier customer.

Shaggy recently had to adjust his overclocking on his main rig and he has played a bunch of Fallout 4. He also discusses his job's transition to open spaces as opposed to cubicles and how it has impacted communication with coworkers. Other topics include Bash on Windows and more.
