Born in 1975, Joe has always had a fascination with technology, and how things worked. While growing up he was known for taking things apart just to see what made them tick, and while he was not always able to put things back together with any success, the knowledge stuck and he learned from those experiences.

Flash forward a few decades there is very little that Joe cannot successfully fix/rehabilitate. This interest in computers and technology got Joe his first fulltime job in 1994 in computer store while a senior in high school. He was responsible for designing, building and repairing computers. Since then Joe has moved on to many things, but his roots have always been computer related. Joe is currently a Sr Network Engineer for an internet service provider.

Joe’s other hobbies, include playing video games, designing and building Halloween props, electronics, 3d printing, graphic and web design and everything Star Wars.

Alone with myself

Friday, 29 April 2016 18:21

Would like to do a write up today, but I have way to much going to on at this time, so I will leave you with the news I did not cover.

As always; thanks for stopping by.

No rest for the podcaster

Friday, 22 April 2016 04:21

My vacation was good, and I managed to take keep up with news. Lots of things this last week; so those of you follow this are in for a treat. We should be back in the "studio" this weekend and have a fresh episode where we go over all the new news (and maybe some from this week). Until then, thanks for stopping by.

Lets get funky

Friday, 15 April 2016 01:46

Managed to see some awesome back to back shows in the Seattle area a couple days ago. Iron Maiden, and George Clinton! Before we left though I was able to get some news for you all. Not much to say at this time as I am still recovering from all the awesome that just happened.

The new episode will be up here shortly, and remember to click that like/subscribe/follow/donate button! 

Thanks for stopping by!


Take that chaos!

Wednesday, 06 April 2016 01:28

This weeks things seem to less hectic than the last two. Editing is just about done and it's only Tuesday! /joy

As I go though the perform the finial listen before publishing the podcast I feel that, as always, this episode is better than the last. I think we are getting better at what we do and are able to be more candid as we get more comfortable with what we do. In the end though you are the one that benefits. Another thing that is exciting is that we managed to pass the 1 hour mark!

Thanks everyone for listening. I have put the new links below that we were not able to cover.

Please take a moment to follow/subscribe. We would appreciate it.

I Wanna Rock Right Now

Thursday, 31 March 2016 21:36

It has been a busy last few weeks. Aside from all of the personal and work projects I have been keeping up with, there has been more news this last week than I have seen. I am not sure if that is because I am getting better at looking for the news, or if things are picking up. I have been expecting to see an upturn in 3D printing and medical and military usage increases, but it seems like it has been taking off all across the board. I am excited to see where things go.

Below are the articles we did not cover on the podcast, and I would like to remind you that it is your support that keeps us doing what we do. Without you we would just be two guys, sitting in a basement, recording our conversations. Seems creepy when it's put like that, huh? You cam make it less creepy by taking a moment to subscribe and costs you nothing, of you can become a patron for about $0.25 a week. 

Thank you all, and see you next week!

Bring me my TADIS

Friday, 25 March 2016 22:13

I feel I need to dial the chaos in my life down down from 11 to at least a 10. While I don't mind, and even welcome it, the chaos has started to over-run all the time I have. I hate saying how I don't have time because after awhile it get old, and I am aware everyone feels like they could use more hours in the day. I was able to get quite a bit done and this week, and last weeks episode is now finished, and will be released on-time. I am hoping I can get back to releasing the episodes earlier in the week.

I will be spending tonight installing my new print bed, calibrating my steps per millimeter, replacing my extruder cables, and installing a new control board. Nothing like a printer rebuild the night before the show. ;)

The news we were not able to cover is below. Thanks for reading and listening and check back again.

Thursday never looking back

Thursday, 17 March 2016 05:28

This week went by all to quickly. From the looks of it, I will not be getting the podcast out until Friday, but I will push for later this evening. Just depends on if I am happy with how it sounds. As you can see from the image I have had 2 editing buddies. Their names are River Song (white and black), and Mara Jade. I know we have not talked about a print of the week for a few episodes, but with the barrage of maintenance and updates we are doing, we felt that it was best to suspend those for the time. Don't worry though, we will get back to them soon enough.

Below are the news items that we did not get to talk about during the show. Check them out.


2 Months

Tuesday, 08 March 2016 03:31

We have been 'live' for two months now, and while I was nervous at first, I can say I'm having fun. We are getting new listeners all the time, and look forward to getting more as things progress.

I am actually finished editing earlier than the last two weeks and with any luck I should have the episode available tonight. I have a linked my backlog or news articles below. There is some much here that I will not be able to get to them on the podcast, but I wanted to share them with you at least.

Thanks again all and cheers!
