The Tech Guy: Emails bouncing

"In Pleasanton. Thank you Kim. Hello Jim I Leo. How're you I'm great? How are you? I got something here? I wanted to find out what time it is in by Kava Belgian Congo. That is to smoke. That is a blast from data. That's something I had saved to my computer back when DOS was only at three letters exactly. Yeah I started doing this show in the early nineties with John C John was little. Add he get bored. So I I gave him some sound effects start collecting them and that was that big ended up being his favourite. I think our signature sound effect for the longtime couldn't figure out where it came from was from an old dennis. The menace episode. Dennis finds a shortwave radio. And that was that was what he heard on his short rate. I didn't know where it came from. Either but I used to manage a bunch of Sun workstations and servers and I learned how to transmit audio to the servers and these guys would be sitting there doing nothing. I'd play that for. You are funny man. It has a life of its own. Well it's so nice to talk to you that means you've been listening to me rattle on for well back. Then was new. Yeah practically thirty years Lee. Moly IT WAS. It was different. Wasn't it in those days? It was windows. Three one one windows for workgroups it was dos and then we had things like floppy disks. And you don't we didn't have. We really didn't have the Internet. That's what it was. That changed everything. It was where I worked. We had Cloud service in Sunday. You don't know where to go when there's a lot of fun anyway. I'm having trouble. I WANNA keep you here but My female. I manage A bunch of People retirees from where I used to work in around me around four hundred people now and then getting messages from US Jimmy L. Which is fine but now. I'm getting measured. Says there was a problem and delivering your message and Known as recipients server did not accept our request to connect now. I have a question for you on that. So there's two possibilities was it an actual email that you sent or your clients sent. I sent but it is one. You can see the email that you tried to send because one time that happens to a lot of people and you may have seen this also because spammers or notorious for using your email address never going to use their email address in the return. Sure so when they send out a million emails and your in your address is the return address. You'll get a certain number of bounce backs. That's that's just internet background noise. But but if it's an actual email that you tried sending have you actually sat down and tried resetting that email and watch it and see it come bouncing back and you're sure an extra actually? It'll it'll do that over a period of days because it will tell me trying. Yeah it'll keep trying and you're sure you have a proper email address right. It's an existing. Email address is is one particular host you're sending to well I'm sending to There's four of them that gives me trouble. One of them is earthlink link. The other one's mind spring was Netcom. And then there's another one people peach or something but it's no accident that all of those are really old. Isp's yard that's right. That's right there. Seems to be a commonality. All of that. And we retirees your all of your. Yeah all of your email addresses. G Mail is of course run by Google and his run very well by Google G. Mail adheres to all the modern standards. So I I don't know why mine Spring Mind Spring. Wow there's a blast from the past earthlink dot com. I don't know why they're refusing mail from G mail it. It probably means that those people aren't getting a lot of males since almost you know everybody uses g mail now and you know if the other way around I might understanding because g mail in order to reduce spam a good inbound emailer. We'll do a lot of things like reverse. Dns they'll do some authentication things like SPF and stuff and they may refuse mail from a server that doesn't identify properly. You know doesn't records or something like that. Yeah that sounds to me like earthlink. Netcom and mine. Spring are miskin figured in some strange. I've done this for years and all of a sudden on me. This started to happen. A May fifth for whatever reason it sounds to me like I would guess because again. Google is very modern inch. And it's probably that on May fifth. They flipped a switch for some new standard that mind spring net common and earthlink. Aren't currently adhering to GonNa have to do some research. I think he emailed. Who Do I email that? Earthlink man earthly. Yeah Yeah admitted it would probably do it. earthlink. Yeah it's something they're doing and you know what if it's happening to you? It's happening a lot so they'll likely fix it. I'M GONNA I'm a little research. Keep listening if you

Texting Videos To Clients

"Hey there it's Eric. J Olson as I record this on March twenty third. We are in week number two of the corona virus pandemic. We are in lockdown and I am recording from a house. One of the things that I did early on and by early I mean like March thirteenth. Which was Friday? That was actually no. It was the twelfth right before our state of digital marketing address. I was in the Conference Room Jake and said Hey jake record a video of me please. And I turned to him and I recorded a two minute video which we then had to scramble to get out to clients. We didn't have a way of bulk. Messaging our clients so caccia was tasked with putting together all of our clients email addresses and emailing them. And she did it through hub spot which we use for sales. It's a convenient way of sending a bulk email message. And then knowing who's open and things like click through rates while by the next day Friday the thirteenth. She reported to me about twenty four hours later that only fifty percent of the recipients had received the email or ashish say opened the email and only ten percent click through and I was. I was super frustrated. Not with her just the fact that e mail sometimes sucks as far as delivery mechanism it can go into various tabs in G. Mail like the Promotion Tab it could go into the spam folder outlook. You don't know where the emails GonNa go. Email is very easy to send but it's very difficult to receive. Sometimes they can get flagged as spam all over the place throughout the Internet through the ISP by the client by the company's infrastructure. Who knows but he can get caught up and I a way to make sure that this message got through to our clients. One of the piece of data that we have our clients is a cell phone numbers for the point of contact. We have a sheet. That has all our clients information in there but the cell phone was only listed for about half of our clients. So I scrambled along with Kevin Glenn to get the other half filled in and all of a sudden we had cell phone numbers for ninety percent of our clients. I went into call loop dot com. Which is the system that we use for text messaging. I created a group called clients and uploaded those cell phone numbers into that group. I then sent a text message individually to each of our clients thus basically. Hey It's Eric. See over a digital. Have Short message for you. And I linked to an unlisted youtube video. The one that Jay took me the other day in the conference room and I sent that out. I was very pleased when I spoke with a client early the next week and she was referencing. Some of the ideas that I had put into the video. She had clearly watched it a few days later. I had another message to send out to the clients and this is more advice on how they can use digital marketing and social media to improve their business right now and it's not stuff like wash your hands but very actionable items that either they can take or we could take on their behalf and so I watch a second video out of the roughly seventy clients that we have only two on subscribed. I haven't dog to figure out who the two are. Frankly don't really care but the message got through and that's the key you know when you need to get a message out when you want to get a message out. I believe that it's your responsibility. As the person communicating to ensure that the message is received now they may not necessarily listen to it. They may not take your advice. But you have to ensure that that message gets to your intended recipient. No matter what you have to do email phone call text message spokesman those I don't care just get it there. Make sure they receive it. It's not enough just to send an email and then a couple of days later. Say I don't know what happened. I sent the email which I've heard. My entire career appeared the phone and call people send attacks message to do whatever we gotta do but make sure the communication is

Empty Cinemas and the Streaming Giants

"Prices aside. Going to the movie theater was an escape all entertainment all no matter what entertainment you like whether it's opera whether it's rap concert whether it's a wrestling match whether it's a boxing match whether it's a fight over the last Good Glass of drinking water in Flint Michigan. It doesn't matter what it is. Yeah all entertainment is an escape from your life. It is entertainment it's supposed to entertain you no matter what it is and what the movie theaters. It was a place to go other than your home. You could go and sit in fairly decent seats for the most part over the years they've upgraded. They've done the stadium seated things and everything else. And it's cool when it's whatever some theaters still having upgraded sadly but you could go for two hours or sometimes less than sometimes more and watch a movie and be fine and happy for me help. I approached going to the theater unless I was with my mom or somebody or other people I would go at the most opportune time for me. Which was mostly like one o'clock in the afternoon eastern time on a Monday morning when everybody's just getting back from lunch and going back to work so basically the feeder would be empty because nobody should be there at one o'clock in the afternoon on Monday morning take any number of transformers live action films. I think I saw a little ones. I did see in theaters. I saw two of them the Monday after they released. And there is nobody in the theater because I am not a person that likes crowds at all. You know you mentioned last week about the introvert. Extrovert thing I'm both I but generally I prefer to be away from people. I've been social distancing. Since I was ten years old but the movie theater it was cool. It was great. You could get something to eat if you wanted to or drinkers snack or whatever. Generally I never got drinks because I didn't want to be that more on that. Got Up in the middle of the Movie Day because he had to go to the bathroom kind of I hate. I hate that so it was great. It was cool. It was something on a large screen and it was fun. Going to theaters and lately hasn't been so much fun because it costs so much. Yeah and the thing is to like being wor am in my point in life. I just don't have time to go and it's not really on my radar like so generally do wait for streaming and do. I love the experience of going to the theater. Yes because honestly there's nothing quite like it because you get the giant screen you get the surround sound you get the the full immersion into it whereas when you're at home you know you have distractions you use your phone you You may be doing something else while you're watching it like. I have two monitors like generally I'll play a game on one a watch net flicks on the other end. So it's kind of a toss up of what I'm paying attention to But that being said Other than when I lived in the Flint area in having annoying person that had like the loudest freaking bags of food in the world Crackling around me. Or that couldn't stop talking on their phone or stop talking in general So you could get immersed in it I genuinely didn't joy going especially for something that I liked like. You know the Star Trek Cord you know I saw star wars in there for a while and then I didn't see the last one but in the theater but But Yeah I mean there. There was a lot of reasons to go the only problem that I see now that they've had to utterly close aside from the fact they're going to have to do a deep clean when they opened back up because of cobwebs is that. S- we've had hit that point where instead of billion dollar box offices we have zero dollar box office and you went from having like back in the day they were lake. You know okay. We would have like a couple of huge movies every month. And you know you'd have like kind of a rotating panel of some movies every week. You know enough for like every day of the week pretty much instead of having like anywhere from fifteen to twenty movies. Come out every week. Which is what we were getting. Honestly it'll majority of them with the platform that we're on now with having streaming in movie theaters about half of those should go streaming because there's a lot of them that are not strong enough contenders for the theater. And they're somewhere. You should be fully immersed in being the theater for them and I it's it's GonNa be really telling when this is over when this whole pandemic over because the large that this huge monumental amount of movie theaters that are shut down across the globe. Some of the services like NBC. The they're they're peacock service. They have Nbc Universal granted NBC and universal are both owned by comcast who's also a cable company in ISP and Just content providers well They broke the theatrical window which they've been trying to do for years Even as comcast before they went and they've been trying to break this for years in like paper view movies where you get them immediately. Well now they can actually do that because they have their own service and they can use their xfinity x. one is they will make movies. Available on demand immediately says Granted you know dreamworks? The trolls movie. That came out man. It's it says that you know insiders say the movie isn't a blanket policy for the studios and tear twenty twenty calendar in that decisions regarding other titles and the duration of the policy haven't been made yet But I I have a feeling that we're going to start. Seeing kind of a trickle down effect of certain movies immediately going this route And what they're doing to compensate is this is movies will be made available on a wide variety of on-demand services for a forty eight hour rental period at a suggested retail price of nine hundred ninety nine in other words the same would be to buy the DVD when it comes in they're saying in the US and the price of quivalent whatever it is in the international markets The they're basically saying that it's They're also trying to provide options for consumers who cannot or should not go to the cinemas Which I kind of like that option to see it from home however think that they're charging that much because it's a new release and YOU'RE GONNA be watching it from your home flakes convenience of it in there. Estimating that would be buying the estimated that you would be buying enough tickets for everyone in your family but yeah I don't I don't know like it's it doesn't seem that bad all right so anyways. I was stating that the nineteen thousand nine suggested retail price for for forty eight hour rental window for the movies while I liked the concept and the idea because I have a feeling this is going to stick around win the theaters. Come back Whether they all come back or not is a different story. But I have a feeling that this is going to stick because they've been trying to get this market for quite some time and to have this readily available now right. I think that it's GONNA stick. And for for instance for me like I don't go to the theater because I don't have time to go now. Granted when I go it's usually solo anyway and so that would be like seven or eight dollars. You know. Drop RIGHT THERE. So nine hundred ninety nine is not bad. If you're having the whole family watch it like I kind of get it there. But I can't see a lot of people lake generation or younger paying twenty bucks a month to go see every new movie that comes out to be honest like especially when there's other means that China provides you know alter Geeky caster network do not adhere to stolen China viruses. No or you know. They're pirates. Yeah but like I I. Honestly don't care I'll wait until hit streaming and then watch it legitimately but but yeah. So like they're they're talking like all these different companies or having To kind of shift their paradigm of how. They're going to do things or you know like. Mgm was the first to make a major shift when pushing the James Bond Movie. No time to die from late. April to November in hopes that it will still come out in the theater so and then you know like there's some other movies that have shifted from this year to this time next year trying to avoid it so it's it's GonNa be kind of a interesting time with the theaters kind of trying to predict what directions they're going but I do know that if people do not return to them after they opened back up that it's going to collapse this entire system of Louis

Getting internet access to everyone during a pandemic is not an easy job

"As more cities and states asked people to stay at home. We're all relying on our Internet access. Which means the digital divide is more obvious than ever and tens of millions of Americans still don't have access to reliable high speed Internet. Telecom companies and Internet service providers are extending service and offering free sign ups but there are still barriers not least of which are regulations and rules against local Internet networks. Christopher Missiles Director of the Institute for Local self-reliances Community Broadband Networks Initiative. I asked him what we're seeing in the short term. Now there's a lot of people who are signing up for service who didn't have it before or maybe they're going to a better provider but we're seeing in areas that have one or more cases of the virus that some of the ISP's are seeing record sign ups in some cases twice the previous record of daily number of new customers that unfortunately means that we need is peace to have protocols for connecting people because the number of service providers have actually stopped going into people's homes and doing new connections while they figure out how to handle this and so we will need to find a way in which we can do new connections. Because I think that this connectivity is just going to become more and more important allow so you're saying it is literally spurring people who had not had broadband access before to sign up? But they might still be waiting until this is over whenever that is for to be installed. Yes that appears to be the case and I think this is even more important because many. Isp's from the biggest companies to small local companies. A lot of them are finding ways of doing sixty day or ninety day free periods for low income families to get signed up. And I think that's really important for families that right now might be having to leave their home in order to go to a community WIFI spot. You know. We don't want people to leave the home unless it's essential and so if we can get people connected in the home that would be the ideal situation sort of in the medium term. The trump administration is pushing for a giant stimulus package. Do you think that we'll see some of that? Go towards helping people get online. I think we're seeing a lot of interest in that. I just don't know exactly what we can do in the medium-term to get those connections going. I would think one of the things is to definitely support the Internet service companies that are extending their networks and maybe giving them some relief but one of the things definitely need to do is to let communities deal with this in in their own ways. There are many states that currently limit the ability of local governments to build their own networks. And we really need to see those limits go away so that communities are free to expand Internet access as rapidly as I can. Yeah I wanted to talk about that. Specifically we've seen states cities big. Isp's be really resistant to the idea of community broadband municipal broadband. What might happen there. How can policy help restart some of those projects? Well the first is that the states themselves could change the laws. There is no one thousand nine states that limit local authority to build networks partner with local companies and they could decide tomorrow to get rid of those limitations and then the other option would be for the federal government to strike them down in some manner and Congress could do that directly or it could condition aid of certain kinds to those states to say. Hey if you're gonNA limit broadband investment in your state. Then we're not going to give you a federal dollars to expand the networks and this is this something that really gets to me because we've spent billions of dollars on network cetera obsolete and in fact we still are through the remainder of two thousand twenty writing checks to big companies that are delivering very slow. Dsl That does not qualify broadband in so those big companies have all had their shot. And it's time to have a all hands on deck approach to expanding Internet access. Internet infrastructure is no joke in terms of establishing but is this a moment for startups. At all this is going to be a real test for the wireless. Isp's some of whom are coming through and their networks are doing fine others are not as good technologically and I'm afraid their networks will not work and this is more common in rural areas. And so I do think we will get a winnowing of the kinds of networks. That will succeed when we have a sudden shift in demand as we are currently experiencing and those that that don't make it. I don't know if anyone seen it. But those organization called the National Digital Inclusion Alliance. They have a page that is collecting all of the different offers for low income families. I think about ten percent of kids in school do not have broadband at home Their website is digital inclusion dot. Org they're a great group. That's really trying to get information out about where families can go to get access if they do not have it at home. Christopher Mitchell is with the institute for Local Self Reliance he told me nineteen states have passed laws that specifically limit the authority of local governments to partner with local companies to build broadband

Netflix, YouTube, Disney, Facebook downgrade streaming quality in Europe due to COVID-19

"Flicks and Youtube and Amazon have all reduced video quality and also facebook and instagram have have reduced video quality and Europe. Because they're concerned that everybody's using consumer networks and that it's going to be overloaded. People won't be able to do work and and function so. That's that's actually a really kind of a weird thing. Suddenly there is no high quality video to be had in Europe. It was the same time that the. Isp's here are lifting data caps showing. What nonsense that whole thing is that was my takeaway on that too? Oh you don't need the data caps anymore Oh that's interesting well. I don't WanNa knock them because thank you. It's generous but I wonder how hard it's going to be for them to turn those back on now that we know it's not because of lack of capacity They won't stop them. Netflix did not do no. Of course I nothing will stop comcast Netflix In the US did not do the same thing and somebody said it was because of the infrastructure. Netflix is set up. I don't know if this is true. But it makes sense to me Netflix. Do you remember they offered that. What was it called the Open Open Network Alliance something that they offered? Isp's where you would host a Netflix box in your network center so that your customers would actually be getting netflix. Not over the public Internet but from within the network and apple does this. For instance apple has a Netflix server. When you're watching Netflix on apple they're streaming it I think through their network through their CDs. We were talking about that when we were talking about net neutrality and how complicated that in fact is because you already have you know the super head. The deserves a Lixin Youtube primarily hosting. You know so. So that's how we came to understand that the whole net neutrality thing is about between the ISP and the and the and the user at home but But yeah that's a no doubt that is a very different situation in Europe than it is in the United States. I guess maybe they didn't do this This I think some other is peace. I think comcast Hosts some Netflix Netflix boxes? In data center as well so that was the ideas. Comcast Cox Spectrum. Your little guys would have a Netflix box. So wouldn't clog up the public internet and I would imagine if that was widespread in the US. I think for Awhile. Comcast said we're not going to do it and I think maybe they've done it eventually but The idea was you know that would really ease Internet bandwidth.

Coronavirus could force ISPs to abandon data caps forever

"Though how our technology infrastructure is going to handle so many more people working from home not to mention all the learning from home the school kids and college students are going to be doing data caps and internet access is what we're talking about and when we talk about things like that we can only one on the phone she's the host of marketplace tech Hey Molly Hey guy so did caps data limits sometimes they're called have been like the Bible for online usage internet companies for like ever that that now has like all of a sudden gone out the window that has gone out the window most major ISPs in America have lifted their data caps and of course this is the thing where if you use too much data you pay an overage charge and when it's your home broadband it might be you know two hundred and fifty gigabytes for example when it is your cell phone service it might be much lower if you don't have unlimited data all of a sudden everybody does have unlimited data and ISPs have said for nigh on a long time two decades maybe that we that we needed these caps to prevent congestion on the network that's been one of their big arguments against net neutrality regulations for example that they need to be able to manage networks in this way but for the most part right now the internet seems to be working fairly well in an unlimited fashion for a lot of Americans so were they just fibbing I mean you know I think that there have been times when these arguments were very legitimate for example on mobile networks when they were sort of growing when we were first rolling out four G. you know what their work congestion problems congestion certainly exists on networks but the simple fact is that in terms of value sort of giga byte to four dollar the United States has had some of the most expensive internet speeds in the developed world advocates a ban looking for the data to say that these caps are unnecessary and after this they're going to have it having unleash the beast now as there were any going back I don't think so I mean I think this is you know couple things are happening in the middle of this giant unplanned very abrupt experiment one is that we are seeing that the internet really is a utility and that has been something that advocates have argued about for a long time that we should classify it that way and treat it that way and absolutely not you're not it's going to be very hard to take away this kind of access once people have had it and frankly there's no M. ongoing economic arguments credit for it you can hear me trying to be professional there then they'll get that I get that look you got you got twenty seconds to answer this question what are the odds that it will get regulated as utility coming out of this this period of economic disquiet now I mean I think we really are going to see some changes in the way that we look at this the digital divide has got to be closed we knew that going in and it's going to be more obvious than

The COVID-19 crisis is making the internet more available

"Millions of people and more every day are working from home or learning from home during the corona virus outbreak. And that means we need the internet now more than ever Wi fi virtual private networks to connect securely to work broadband cellular connections so is our digital infrastructure up to the task and how can companies and even cities prepare for such a massive unplanned experiment. Jonathan Rankin tall is the former chief information officer. For the city of Palo Alto California. He says there's enough infrastructure but it isn't always evenly distributed there is available bandwidth in the US the big telcos of builds some significant infrastructure across the country. What we're going to have to see is communities. Get access to that broadband. They're still in the United States. Nineteen million people who don't have access to broadband in part of the problem is it can be a little expensive for for many homes and also just some communities. Don't have the prerequisite technology in place. So maybe having millions of Americans all of a sudden do remote work. It's going to act as a strong encouragement for government intervention more spending and for the Telco companies to also step up as well where they're still got right and we have seen even just in the last few days companies say that they're going to drop data caps that they're going to increase speeds for lower income users is going to be any going back after that. I think we're GONNA have a lot of questions I mean. I hope people to wash their hands after this event is over. These are good behaviors and we need to continue them. Some of our experience suggests that if we get over this we may go back to our old routine and all the wonderful things that the private sector's doing to step up right now. Dr. Mayo resort to the way we've been doing things. I don't know the answer to that. You know it'll depend how things really start to progress over the next few weeks I think if it's long term which I certainly hope not people will get used to it and there might be a greater inclination to to keep it in place or perhaps offer access to lower income communities providing them with reduced course and more access as we see more people effectively adopting remote work because it works right like. Do you think this is the moment when we will all say? Oh Hey turns out? The Internet really is a utility. Well I think we'd all agree now that the Internet is magical. It's absolutely magical me liquid. It's enabling us to not only have millions and millions of workers all over the world work from home but it's allowing scientists to collaborate in a speed that we've never seen before collaborating on vaccines sharing information between science organizations and governments and working on the medicine so the Internet you know we have to say is is quite a magical platform for humanity right. Let's talk about security for a bit. What do companies have to do? I mean some companies work with very sensitive information and require people to be offsite even to onsite to access it. What can they do? There's gotta be continual investment in Cybersecurity. This is not a you. Write a check once and you're good to go. You got to build a little department depending on the size of organization immature big airline company or a bank. You're going to have a huge security organization and you're going to be investing likely hundreds of thousands if not millions of dollars a year in keeping the security good so on the enterprise side for sure absolutely for sure. The costs are high in their continuing. To increase on the home side. Does enough low cost tools. I mean there's actually a handful of VPN software that a home user can console that's free and then there's some premium services that are relatively low cost so if you got VPN some backup software. Antivirus and anti malware. You're you're in good shape you know in the twenty first century. Don't we can guarantee that you're going to have absolute security. This is something we're going to have to live with and fight for a longtime Jonathan. Rankin tall is the former chief information officer for the city of Palo Alto California. He also wrote the book smarter cities for Dummies when it comes to the digital divide and making sure everyone has access to the magic some. Isp's are stepping up.

How coronavirus may slow the internet

"Well more and more companies telling workers to work from home if they can Tuesday Google advised all of its North American workers not just workers in San Francisco and Seattle that all North American workers to work from home until at least April tenth. Fortune reported that about twenty. Nine percent of the workforce could work from home in other words. The bus driver can't work from home has to be on the bus. That kind of thing but twenty nine percent of the. Us workforce could work from home. That's about forty two million people and to that schools either shutting down or going to remote classes means a lot more students of all ages college students as well possibly working from home if they're not in the dorms for instance. That's a lot more people on home. Internet then your. Isp is used to especially during the day. At and T. And Verizon told fortune that the fiber optic cable that provides the. Isp's back haul should be fine. The volume of traffic isn't expected to change too much. They'll be more video conferencing and such but they expect that the pattern of change will be the bigger problem. The traffic will be coming from homes. Not Offices one network insider told a lot of packets will go in odd directions with odd routes and people won't be able to address issues quickly enough it won't break but get ready for a ride This is a some people who live in snow areas no on snow days. Suddenly the Internet does and always work is consistently. Because everybody's trying to use it at the same time. Imagine that on nationwide levels. The chokepoints are lower bandwidth cable and copper wire services your corporate network trying to handle all that increased. Vpn traffic also companies need to find out workers at home have sufficient bandwidth and be prepared to invest in things like mobile hotspots and temporarily maybe subsidizing increasing their data plans. Of course your home Wifi network. You're not a Wifi. Six in most cases You don't have that increased capacity of suddenly all. The students are home your home. Everybody's working from home. You're overloading that WIFI network. Because more devices are using it at once as I mentioned video already estimated to be about seventy percent of network traffic already. And we're GONNA have more video conferences so that puts a little more strain on the system and don't forget apps themselves. The Internet society notes that individual tools need to provision sufficient compute storage and bandwidth resources to deal with increased users. Yes zoom wants everybody to use zoom for the video conferencing but zoom better. Make sure that they've got enough bandwith and cloud resources to handle that. They have but any kind of APP you're using from home. We'll need to prepare for that. We have a test case. China has gone through this by streaming service and educational options application called sway. Si-tong popular office applications including video conferencing applications Ding talk and we chat work online games from tencent. All reportedly crashed at one time or another due to all the increased traffic of people using them from home.

Virtual Events: How to Gets Bums on Seats

"And welcome back. This is the first time that you are joining as you in for a treat every month we're going to talk to a guest expert adult later in their industry and today we have someone who knows everything there is to know about filling your virtual event. So just to give you a recap on what we GONNA cover today. There's a lot of content. It's very much hands on how to do things. Creating a marketing checklist. So pre event during the event and post event how to spread awareness through everyone involved with this includes the vendors the sponsors the ten days where the post and advertise choosing the best platform to host your ISP pays incentives for early birds and all that good stuff that of course. This massacre is brought to you by industry. Thought Leader Academy Welcome. Good good may have cut out again here and we can see you share a little bit about how you got into really specializing in getting virtual bums on virtual sates. So yes I have. I wasn't. Ea An executive assistant for many years. wants I was sort of let go from that position. I add to open up my own company which I focused on marketing specifically so my background is everything from working at events management as well as marketing events and bigger and better things as well so when it comes to the event itself I got into it because of the marketing avenue of our business and the background I've had in the industry of people who have registered and they're they're now we have the ability to be able to ask questions as we jobs through as I say All integrate them within The actual live here so holly can can certainly address them And may be also some opportunities at the end of today's masterclass to get your questions answered as well so let's dive in when we're thinking about creating virtual event we're talking about a summit. Tally Summit webinars masterclass. Lot Way join today anything. That isn't event. We were sharing topic and rather than being in person. It's very much online. Yes that's correct. Isn't it correct so there is? There is very similar stuff that we can do in person events as we can with online. There's a lot of similarities. But they'll definitely have some differences. Yes eight event and free events to yeah a little bit different ballgame. I K so what? We'll do then. I mean some people might be listening to watching and even the recording. That may be thinking about doing some free events as a way to launch into a pay program and some may also be charging for attendance to that event. So if you're talking about something holy as we go through maybe you might WanNa just NFC. It's a pilot event these of things that you need to consider as well and of course at the end of this master class what we do with all of a master classes is. We'll give you details on how you can connect with all because I know that this is what you do for for many of your clients to as well so everything that we're talking about today you will do for your clients. Hey Mark Nice that you are joining us today. So creating your marketing checklist pre event during event and posted them. I think this is all about the planning. Isn't it one of some things that we need to consider? Let's look at pre event so pre-event you'd want to come up with your overall events strategy in general so is your event worth attending. That's a great question that you might want to ask the people to get some feedback What type of problem solving decide if it's going to be a paid event or a free event Decide if you have an ad budget. Are you going to spend some money on facebook ads? Google ads linked in twitter instagram. All that or you're going to go the grassroots way and just go and do all the other things that we're talk about as well have you created Hashtag for the event even deciding what platform but you'll host. The event on similar to Ameri is done so we either have been hosted on if virtual van could host it on all types of different platforms or you can just choose one leg Zulu or even the one that we're on right now stream yard. A facebook could be facebook kind of decided to decide which one you're going to do. So you'd want to create a checklist slash Plan AROUND WHO's coming? Your target. Audience is you're worth is your net worth attending what probing resolving decide if you have the budget or if you're gonna go grassroot style decide a list of strategic partners that you have that you'd like them to also help Market for you and a Hashtag tag free event. So so who do you know who is four? And how are you going to market it? Yep Great one of the things that I think we often also I guess consider what timing do. We need to To be able to have that in place is it One month's is it three weeks. What sort of timing should be stopped thinking about pre event checklists? Which you just listed for us. I would think at least a month in advance best shortly. If it's a pain event you're GONNA BE DOING EARLY. Bird discounts And working with strategic partners. You'RE GONNA to need at least a month to a plan that all out end to get your marketing going. So ideally when you're planning out your marketing and your business strategy for the year which everybody obviously has done not right One of the things I would include in there is you know. How many events are you going to have? What's the impact of the events? Are you going to use it as a lead generation or you're GONNA use it for To sell a course is you know. What are you using these events for whether it's a Webinar paid or free are using the paid versions of these online events to make quick cash. Or are you going to use him as lead? Gen in the future. So if you want to just decide that then you start mapping all out throughout your year so if you WANNA do one a month fantastic. You gotTA preplanned that though last year. So if you're GONNA start doing some events this month it'd be great to have it planned out before event basically starting

Shut Your Pi Hole! Ways of blocking adds on your network.

"Pie hole and it sets it up. It brings you to a graphical interface where it asks you questions like what do you want your upstream. Dns provider to be a lot of people. Use Google Eight dot eight dot eight dot eight right and so I just a yeah. That's my upstream. So anything that gets passed the pie hole goes onto. Google says. Hey this is the real. Dns request go ahead and serve me this information but anything that gets blocked just gets sent to a black hole and so my browsing speed has been increased almost double because I don't have to wait for websites to load up these advertisements now right now. I'm wondering could you use this? Because some countries will not allow you to read to watch media lab if it's legit if it's a legitimate request for an ad or for a for a website or for media it's going to be forwarded upstream to your DNS provider or your ISP got it and that's where your ISP. Let's say in situations like China Iran North Korea. That's where they're blocking the stuff rate. Well this only prevents advertisements and tracking cookies. And a Lotta Times now aware from entering your system so I no longer get pop ups. I get ads rate. My even my facebook feed you know. Facebook has become notorious now for fitting ads every like five. If there's an ad no more and more you heard this they're changing the interface again Sometimes it's this month. I believe it's going really this one through next month. It's going to be changing the entire. Look and they're already inviting people in to start being the testers for that this my so I just went into my settings on my browser and I've had my computer up for probably twenty four hours to turn it off last night Thirty four hundred ads in trackers blocked in your estimate estimates that I've saved three minutes of browsing time. Yeah now that's the thing is that that is just simply your computer. So the right to in your browser in my pie hole sounds funny. Is that my private work on it? Name of the show this week pie hole. No no no no no. He's been called. Shut Your Pie hole from full metal jacket. There you go. No but the difference is the pie hole runs on the network so any client on the network gets ads blocked. Not just so even if your smartphone. You're you're you're you're pulling that up the that will block right. Yep absolutely absolutely sweet. You might my Amazon Amazon Fire TV or fire tablets that I have my home automation I HAVE TO HD. Ten fire tablets will. I bought the cheap version that comes with the built in advertisements for Amazon. And this is a part of their deal. You you pay less but you have to be served ads on the lock screen right since pudding pie hole in the ads anymore. It's just a place. It's a blank screen well and you know. I've heard that televisions that we're going to start seeing that you're going to be able to buy a four K. Television ten eighty P TV a lot cheaper to allow LG or Sony to go ahead and feed you ads so this is one way to get a pie hole and you lock them all actually kind of cool. I like that. Yeah not a bad idea. Where can you find this? Can you go online is? Where would you get out and like? Let's see what is I think it's just pie hole pie. Hole Dot net. I think let's see. What is it.

Go Networking with Sneha Inguva

"Guba. Welcome to software engineering daily. Thank you thank you for having me here have been a huge fan for a while so. I'm super excited and humbled to be on the show right. Well happy to have you on you work at Digital Ocean which is a cloud provider. Give me a few examples of engineering problems that you've worked on so digital ocean. We are cloud hosting provider. We have a variety of products in different areas for example with storage with networking as well as compute. Which is probably. I guess what most people are familiar with who used digital ocean we have droplets serve virtual machines that they can use but the interesting thing as cloud hosting providers that it's a little different from other companies in which in that we have both physical hardware issues we also have software issues and then we also have a web application so we've had interesting problems kind of all over the place when I joined the company. I wasn't actually network engineer. I was working on. One of the internal delivery. Teens is what we call the and on that team the biggest problem we were addressing was the difficulty in deploying and updating applications so namely working with Kubrick so that was definitely an interesting problem because I think we addressed. Both you know the challenge in building an abstraction layer on top of Kuban as that increased the just ease of deploying because before that people use chef chef was a little complicated in general and then on top of that also getting buy in from different teams to kind of use this new internal tool that we had so that would. That's kind of one of the problems we've had that we've addressed as you've mentioned digital ocean is built around these abstractions called droplets. Can you say much about what droplet is? Is it a VM? Is it a container? What am I actually interfacing with? When I spin up a digital ocean instance of course so it is a virtual machine. I think droplet just our marketing speak for everything oceanic themed in our company but it is essentially a virtual machine that is I guess. Technically Co located on servers with other virtual machines and you can spin up really in any location around the world. I think we have about thirteen data centers. So that super fine I I also heard you mentioned container so right now. We don't have containers as a service but we have coober. Netties is a service so technically speaking you could manage your containers as well although droplet itself is just a ritual machine. Got It now when you join a company. It's always tricky to find the bounds of what you should learn. And what you should know. R- it's hard to know just how deep to go and I know that when one of these virtual machines spun up. There's a ton of stuff that is going on under the hood. What was your process for figuring out what to learn the the life cycle of a user spinning up a VM. That's a really good point. In fact I think I think we still do this. When someone we have a for networking at least we have a really good on boarding process. Or when I joined the company not a networking we also had still had a pretty good on boarding process but it was more generic and there is in fact I guess. An on boarding session called how. The cloud works where an engineer who's been at the company for a while actually goes through the entire process and kind of goes through all the micro services that I guess receive a request and send a response. You know down to the schedulers that actually are scheduling the droplet placement on a particular hyper visor. Down to everything. So the thing is I think most people probably have a general idea of the different services that are being touched but then when it comes down to the nitty gritty of how exactly he's Networking Setup Hauser. Sdn configured all of that. I don't think unless you're on that specific team. You are aware so. It's it's kind of a t shaped process in a way so you have a general like breath of knowledge of how I guess the cloud works quote unquote but when it comes to the nitty gritty details. You probably have a very good idea of just your specific area. And I think it's impossible to have a very deep knowledge of absolutely every single service when you're at a company this large with this many micro services and with this many domains of expertise totally now. The reason I want to have you on the show is because I saw some talks. The you gave one specific talk about networking and the term networking can mean a lot of different things. But I know that now working at a cloud provider and you being a systems engineer working at a cloud provider. You probably have some insights on the engineering that goes into the actual nitty gritty of something spending up within digital ocean. What does networking mean at a cloud provider? What does that term networking so networking at a cloud provider? I think has two layers. There's of course the physical infrastructure that is set up so of course I think every cloud provider has physical switches physical address physical gateway so that is definitely one layer but then another thing that you have to consider especially at a cloud provider where you are dynamically. Creating and deleting virtual machines is that you are constantly adding different paths for networking packets traverse and removing them as well. So that's where software defined networking comes in and that's a completely different layer that you have to consider especially at a cloud provider and in fact at digital ocean. We actually have a team that deals with a lot of the physical details when it comes to physical switches in our data centers but we also have a SDN team which has a lot of sub teams that deal with a lot of the micro services that are interfacing and communicating with obvious open switch which is our virtual switch of choice that are actually making a lot of our networking products. Possible such as you know such as VP see or firewalls or even DHCP. A lot of these different things about some of the lower level networking concepts that you needed to know to build some of the projects that you've built within digital ocean. Of course so I'll just take you through. I guess when I first joined the networking team we were coming out with a product called. Bring Your own image so previously when people typically spin up a virtual machine or droplet they can select predefined image whether it's a boon to or I don't think we have Microsoft but a different version of a boon to or one of many different options however with Byu Hawaii we started giving them the option of bringing their own image. So the only issue with that is when we control the image ourselves. We can kind of control the cloud configuration meaning allocating IP addresses and setting up a lot of configuration. But when they're bringing their own image we need a way to dynamically allocate Ip addresses for those droplets using that image and that's where the DHCP protocol came in. And that was something that I had heard of. But I wasn't super familiar with but in general I guess whenever you're building a new networking product. That's using a new protocol my first step typically is to read the RMC so I pulled up the DHCP are of C and then the DHCP C. Which is a little different and started to learn about the protocol and I guess most people at home are probably familiar with it when they log into their computer and they fire up the Internet their ISP Rod are actually allocates Ip address for their home computer and so that's essentially using the DHCP protocol so we were implementing our own. I guess a hyper visor level demon to do that for different droplets in our data center and so that was something that I started to learn about. And then the other thing. When you're a cloud hosting provider is you start to learn about perhaps the ways in which you might have abusive actors and kind of look into security and so that was very interesting and then you you start to do a lot of load testing and try to figure out how to mitigate any possible issues so that was also something else. I started to look into when it came to the server that phrase you mentioned. Rfc reading the RFC. I've read some core answers and wikipedia recommendations about you WANNA learn networking concepts you should read the RFC which chance for the request for comments. Why is that the best path to learning about networking protocols? I mean that is fundamentally where the networking protocols were designed and some of these protocols redesigned like decades ago so I think that of course you could read wikipedia articles encyclopedia articles youtube videos. All of those are helpful. But I think that going to kind of the original source of where this communication protocol was defined. And of course to be honest the first time you read through any networking RFC. It won't one hundred percent make sense so obviously going through it marking up everything you don't understand which then and then of course every RC is somehow linked Tillich twenty other RC's so then go jumping to another RFC to kind of understand. Maybe another protocol that is used within a particular protocol kind of helps you build sorta like in a mental map or like a mental knowledge tree of what that protocol actually does what it

Google Adds Password Checkup Feature to Chrome Browser, New Privacy Options for Maps

"Talk a little bit about what Google's doing for cybersecurity month well couple of things going on. Google added a password checkup feature to its password manager in chrome and android the feature was previously available as an extension and checks passwords against known breaches and alerts users if it finds a match as well as encouraging users against we're using passwords or using weak passwords data is encrypted and cannot be seen by Google and the warnings generates our local here machine so only you're gonNA essays and they encrypt and Hash the passwords when they do the comparison so so they're trying to do other things to reassure you that you know they're not just letting your passwords. That's words out into the world when they checked them. Which is important This is no different than have. I been phoned where you can. You can look and find out like hey is. This is my username password associated. It's been out on a breach but a little more automatic and it's built into chrome and android so it seems like if you are going to use chrome and Android in this way then this is a great idea whether you should use chrome and Android to store your passwords or log into things. That's a whole separate conversation but if you are a good good feature right I totally agree while they're not done because Google also launched incognito mode for maps in it's kind of what you think it is when you use. Google maps in incognito mode your activity liberty won't be saved to your Google account or use for personalization. Google is also adding auto delete options to your youtube history that can be set for delivery every three to eighteen months on so I like that one a lot and google system respond to voice commands to quote delete the last thing I said to you and quote delete everything I said the last week. Those are both pretty because it's important to note. We talked about earlier so probably a little bit the incognito mode for maps hides it from Google and hides it from them using it. It does not do anything to your. ISP or how you are conveying that information so it's not like suddenly you're mapping info is being encrypted and sent through comcast and they have no idea it's just when it gets to Google. That's an important distinction. It's not a VPN in other words but it's a way for Google to say. Hey if you don't want us to count this location. It's like it's like when you decide to use incognito go to search because you don't want it to affect the ads you get. It's like that for maps like I'm. I'M GONNA go to this location but I don't want suddenly that to effect all the things that Google dozen personalization. I'm I'm sneakily going to a Yankees game but I'm a mets fan and I don't want to start giving me a Yankee scores because it thought I went to the Yankees game. I'm really glad you said that because I have the hardest time in my head constructing viable scenario where this this would really matter to somebody 'cause I haven't really been able to figure it out. Like why would anyone care or why would I care what Google thought about where I went and your baseball announced. He's actually really good. It's probably not the the most legitimate one or common one but the but it is yeah. I think it kind of gets the idea across

Apple, Iowa And Developer discussed on SGGQA Podcast – SomeGadgetGuy

"Apple reportedly won't roll out IOS thirteen to the iphone six six plus or the iphone S E. From the article. Apple is expected to unveil IOS thirteen at their worldwide developer conference in June. But his rumored to be dropping support for the iphone six six, plus an iphone SE Apple's upcoming version of its mobile operating system will not be rolled out to a substantial number of IOS devices that did receive Iowa's twelve according to a report by French blog iphone, soft in addition to the iphone six six, plus an iphone SE IOS thirteen will not be released for the iphone five s the ipad mini to end the ipad air. So. This is one of those like back and forth. Like, I got a lot of criticism when I was reviewing the iphone tennis because I I like to point to apple. There's this wonderful idea of support. You get all of these great I o s updates for for longer than you do on Android devices. But you end up with feature fragmentation as opposed to software fragmentation some things obviously won't work in Iowa's twelve on an iphone six as they will on an iphone ten. I'll be really sad about the SE though, if I O S thirteen goes to the iphone six s but it doesn't go to the iphone S E that's going to be a bummer. The hardware is very similar. It's the same chipset in the same camera in the iphone SE is in the six s and the six the the iphone SE is still my all time favorite iphone, the iterating the improvements the form factor. No camera bulged, the one of the last true premium one thumb smartphones. It's just a great piece of hardware. So if they draw that line there, I think that'll be really frustrating. I think that'll be a hard place to push consumers into trying to update their devices. But again, I would ask a question like why is it that we feel any pressure to be upgrading for general consumer use my iphone SE can still. Form the same as or outperform. My iphone tennis when it comes to some pretty aggressive us even with numerous updates. Apple developers aren't extracting any more power out of high end chipsets then they were years ago. My iphone SE renders video the same or faster than my iphone ten is. So really, it's you got a couple of extra benefits for Cameron ISP processing J peg images. Look better the videos a little bit better. But we haven't really progressed that far not for all of these. It's magical. It's revolutionary these marketing claims what we see during a keynote that stuff doesn't really fly.

"I know them very well. I like them offers. So this is a little complicated, but the reason the internet service provider knows where you're going, even if they don't know what you're doing is that in order to go to Google, for instance, you have to query their domain name server their big phone book and say, well, I wanna go to Google dot com. What's it's IP address? And they'll give you the IP address and that's how your browser works. So that in effect is telling spectrum he's going to Google, they know that they're logging it, but there's a way around that. If you didn't use your internet service providers, domain name system, they wouldn't see that so so yes. So now it's a little complicated because you have best way to do this in your router. If you can log into your router and change the DNS settings. Default settings are your internet service. Providers that those are automatically filled in, but if you want you can change it and the one I would change it to is we call it quad one, one dot one dot one dot one. This is the cloudflare service and the entire point of this. The entire point is to hide where you're going from your net service provider. So now cloudflare knows where you're going. So you have to trust cloudflare. I do, but you're, you're transferring the trust from ISP cloudflare, but if you really felt like I don't want ISP know where I'm going go, you can actually go on the web right now. Two one dot one, one one and read about it, and they even have information about how you would get it going. You can do it on an individual computer, but better would be to do it on a router because that'll affect all the computers in your house. And I know how to do that. Is there any other IT setting I need to change other than one knelt you'd actually, because generally in the router, say at least two different choices and it's good to have two. So the first one, it'd be one one, one, one. Second one would be one dot zero dot, zero dot one. Again, this is all documented at one dot.
