Welcome to the tech podcast, this is show 318. I'll be in the process of reloacting, so this may be the last podcast until the relocation is complete. I'm hopeful that the relocating process will go well, and I'll be available through contact methods mentioned throughout the program should you have questions and concerns.
  • We talk about URL shorteners. Cutt.us and similar services can be a target of spam. This service, along with a couple of others, allow the visitor to report suspicious links. These services allow the shortening of long URL links to shorten one for sharing. Reporting suspicious URL's may be a start, but I'm going to try and get recaptcha on one of my biggest sites to see if it can curve this problem.
  • In segment 2, we finish the talking of shorteners by talking briefly about another service similar to the one I link above, and then we demonstrate braille 2000's grade relaxer. This particular part of the application was already working, but some accessibility fixes were made, and with the beta, I present to you how the relaxer can be used in a classroom setting.
  • We take a song break. In the last segment, we had relaxed Gokul Salvadi to demo how this is done. I thought the music would be perfect to play one track, and you can leave your thoughts.
  • Finally, Equifax and Myspace are back in the news. When Myspace Was King, Employees Abused a Tool Called ‘Overlord’ to Spy on Users from blog The Technology blog and podcast | Former Equifax exec sentenced to 4 months in prison for insider trading related to data breach
Our contact information is at the end of the program. I'm hoping that the relocating process goes well for me, and if something big comes out, I'll do my best to get it out quickly. If not, then I'll be back once I'm settled in. Thanks for listening, and thanks for your continued support.
