Ep 1365: Eat Nothing With Impunity

Part 3 of 8 on my apperance on the A Hundred Words podcast. In this third part, I address the age old question of what you can eat with impunity, which is…nothing. That said, if you’re looking for a list of food that’s relatively safe to eat, start with Vinnie Tortorich’s No Sugar No Grains PDF.

Ep 1362: Get Back Together

The fact that it’s graduation season reminds me of my own graduation from high school 30 years ago. The reunion this year? Virtual. I don’t know about the rest of you, but I’m ready to get back together with people.

Ep 1361: Will NFL Audio Pass Come Back?

For some reason, a podcast I did back in 2013 on NFL Audio Pass got a few listens recently. Not sure why since the NFL hasn’t offered this product in several years and they instead want to buy their more expensive NFL Game Pass, which doesn’t even let you watch live games (at least in the US).

Ep 1360: We Don't Need No Stinking Stats

As long as I’ve been running websites, I’ve more or less ignored the numbers. Mostly because they don’t tell you a lot. What does is engagement. And that leads into some rambling about how large social media sites are basically unmanageable communities with the solution being smaller, more focused ones.

Ep 1359: (Almost) All Browsers are Chrome

Where I talk about my upgrade to Big Sur (latest macOS), how bloated Chrome has become, and how pretty much every web browser out there is basically Chrome. That’s…not a good thing.

Ep 1357: People Come and Go

When you work some place long enough, and you interact with enough people, you will see people come and go. It’s a part of business life.

Long ago, this site used to be the home for a well-visited FAQ site on Check Point firewall products. This site has served many other purposes over the years, but is currently the home for the PhoneBoy Speaks podcast.

Some other projects I'm doing include: CheckMates, Check Point's user community site, PhoneBoy's Security Theater, a blog where I discuss computer and network security-related topics, as well as PhoneBoy Says, an infrequent personal blog where I discuss more personal issues.
