Battle Born Tech – July 2020

21 – July 7, 2020
Malware Mysteries

In my favorite call ever Kirk calls to apologize his way into Team Battle Tech, Joe frightens folks with talks of EXIF mayhem, caller who shall remain nameless calls in about keeping meeting secure on line, Jim, who I call John (sorry, JIM) calls about wrestling with Registry over the CD-ROM drive. Clarification: Microsoft is back and forth on updating the Windows 7 version of Defender, the anti-virus from Microsoft.

UPDATE: Zoom decided to delay (cancel?) the mandatory password or waiting room requirement until the end of September. You can still put a password on all your meetings to get ready for the enforced security from Zoom.

Battle Born Tech Quotes: “Less than enthusiastic” “The Advice is FREE and worth every penny.” “Unless they change it…”, “The best time to backup is when everything is working”, “Registry is not for the faint of heart”, “Backup! Backup! Backup!” “Know where your backup is, because when you need it you are going to need it bad.”

Tech Definition of the Week: We talk about Optical Disks.

Tech Term of the Week: Registry is discussed (not just cussed!)
