Geek Dads @ Home #17: Daniel's Computer FAIL Show


[Show Notes by Daniel M. Clark]

The Geek Dads this week were myself, Joe and Scott – Sam couldn’t join us this week, though we hope that we can get him on a couple more times before he starts his new teaching job.

My computer, the one doing the recording, had a failing hard drive. You may notice a whirring noise at some points because my microphone jack also decided to stop working, so I was recording through the laptop’s internal microphone. The computer died later that day, and I had to get it replaced, which is one reason why this show, recorded last Wednesday, is going up today.

Our topics this week:

  • Sam’s teaching job
  • Joe being under a tornado watch, and dealing with taking the family into the bathroom tub for safety
  • Lobster!
  • Kid competitions, hockey and skating
  • Skiing in various places in the US
  • Illness, fevers and general yucky-ness
  • Swine flu (OMG WE’RE ALL GONNA DIE!!!!)
  • Asthma, nebulizers
  • Autism
  • Scott tells a story about a false positive on a genetic test
  • Swamp coolers
  • More about autism
  • Enough of the depressing stuff! We move on geeky topics… or topic. Twitter. Of course.
  • Who we follow and why (and who we no longer follow and why)
  • Various clients – Nambu, Tweetie, Tweetdeck
  • Having multiple accounts and managing them
  • Twitter “chats”

The show runs a hair over an hour. Enjoy!
