Show Notes - 11/27/2011

It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas!

Tonight on the Tech Support Sunday segment we talked about the proper way to clean your mouse and keyboard without damaging them. Listen in and get the details to make sure it is clean and sanitized. Also we spoke about upgrading RAM and how to recognize that RAM is normally installed in pairs plus how to adjust your Virtual RAM settings:

Formula is 1.5 x RAM = Maximum Paging Size

Click Start, click Run, type sysdm.cpl in the Open box, and then press ENTER.
Click the Advanced tab, and then under Performance click Settings.
Click the Advanced tab, and then under Virtual memory click Change.
Under Drive [Volume Label], click the drive that contains the paging file that you want to change.
Under Paging file size for selected drive, click Custom size, type a new paging file size in megabytes (MB) in the Initial size (MB) or Maximum size (MB) box, and then click Set.
Click OK to close the dialog box and apply changes.

Later we discussed how you should discuss Santa Claus as your children grow older. Perhaps when you wrap toys you put 2-3 from Santa and the rest from yourselves. Children should always hold in their hearts that Santa is a part of Christmas.

Then Joel tore into the people who hide behind social media and bash the Occupy Movement. Try coming out from behind the keyboard and get involved in the political process.

Show Notes - 11/20/2011

HAVE A HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!

Our guest on the show this week was a return expert, Matthew Stein. Mat has just published his new book, "When Disaster Strikes" which encompasses many elements of his previous book, "When Technology Fails". It also expands on some of the most important things that you need to know when a disaster arises. The book is very well written and is in a condensed form so that it fits well in your survival pack. Mat says it's like insurance; buy it and have it in case you need it. We agree, you will not be sorry.

Later on the show, Sharen and Joel had a "discussion" as to why there are different rules for men and women like a man is not allowed to buy a woman a vacuum cleaner as a gift but it is OK for a woman to buy a man a cookware set. Just putting that out there to see if it sticks. Do you have an opinion? We'd like to entertain them, just drop us a line.

Also, is it just us (and everyone else) or is Christmas arriving earlier and earlier with each passing year? As Sharen observes, soon we will have the decorations up all year long.

TRIVIA QUESTION - What is the origin of Black Friday? Two possible answers but only one needed to win a Behind The Mike prize pack. Email your answer to us at Studio@BehindTheMike.info. The correct entries will be put into a hat for the winning draw and announced Sunday night November 20.

Show Notes - 11/06/2011

Andy Rooney Dies at 92

Tonight on the show, we remember Andy Rooney, who passed away Friday night at age 92. Recently he delivered his 1,097th essay for 60 Minutes. His career in broadcasting spanned 60 years; 30 of which were in television.

Later we discussed an article that discusses whether going organic is worth the money. We looked at the amount of pesticides, chemicals and other garbage in certain foods; meats, poultry, fruits and veggies. Eye opening discussion.

Barry Slinker of Old Time Radio USA joined us on the show and discussed ...old time radio. We talked about his station, Fright Night Theater and the upcoming annual 24/7 seasonal run that begins on Thanksgiving evening with "Miracle on 34th Street". Barry has been doing OTR for 11 years and it has been a life-long passion for him (just like BTM's Joel). You can learn more about the station and listen to the shows by visiting the link below.
