I just found this page and came here (too late) to share it with others. Instead I will just say thank you for your courage ... and the 8-bit ringtone.

For someone who doesn't post to G+ hardly at all, I sure seem to have a lot of followers. Wonder how many of them are "real" versus fake or whatever...

I pay almost zero attention to who follows me, except when I decide to follow someone. If they already follow me, I may follow back, but it generally depends on the quality of the interaction, whether I know/like the person and so on.

It seems every time I look at Google+ they put another layer of lipstick on that same old pig. Clearly some of y'all are using it, but me? Just can't make it stick.

I use G+ as a backup archive for a small bit of writing and not much more. We use Hangouts a bit with family in Ireland, or Skype. It's just another place but not a primary, secondary or even tertiary place.

Seriously, Google, how long is it going to take you to review / +PhoneBoy anyway? How many effing websites and social media profiles do I have to tell you about--including my own Gmail account--for you to "approve" the use of PhoneBoy? Sheesh.

Hey, I wrote this!
Another oldie-but-goodie from the PhoneBoy FireWall-1 FAQ on Address Translation: #ThrowbackThursday
It's pretty obvious from looking through the number of 404s I'm seeing in Google's Webmaster tools that a lot of pages still link to old stuff I wrote about Check Point FireWall-1. I'm actually...

For those looking for a way to listen to the oldest episodes of No Agenda in your current podcast app, I present the following. Clearly I've got a long way to go to get caught up to the current episodes, but the first 49 episodes should keep you busy for a while.

I've added a couple more ringtones to my archive.
And changed the URL.
If anyone has a clean Bongo Boom Shakalaka remix, let me know as I had to reconstruct the one I used here.
One of the things I like about No Agenda, aside from it being The Best Podcast in the Universe, is that the community of fellow producers is quite awesome! Aside from donating to the No Agenda, several people maintain various No Agenda related resources that other listeners utilize.

Converting them was much easier for me than I thought. When I downloaded them ES File Explorer converts it into a text file. I simply held down the file to rename it. I then deleted the letters "txt" along with the type of audio file and replace it with .mp3. That's it. It worked.

To go along with "The Catch" we now have "The Pick" courtesy of Tramaine Brock and NaVorro Bowman. #49ers  

This may be the last regular season EVER in The Stick but I think she might have one or two more games left in her.

Parent, Writer, VoIP/Telco Curious, C-List Infosec Celebrity & Mobile Phone Connoisseur

I'm married with children. I write, sometimes, about VoIP, telecommunications, information security, and mobile phones. A few people might remember I ran a website about Check Point VPN-1/FireWall-1 in the late 1990s-early 2000s, as well as a couple of books I wrote on the product. 

I spent 10 years working for Nokia in their Security Appliance division before it was sold to Check Point, where I continue to work.

Occasionally helpful. Occasionally ornery. Occasionally political. Always opinionated.
