Tell us about your best technology implementation

Career, Feedback, Geek Stuff, General Interest, Special Topics September 18th, 2008

OK, so last week I asked everyone for their war-stories on worst technology projects/implementation experiences.  Let’s turn it around and ask for your best experiences.

Tell us your story.

Podcamp Philly

Associations, Feedback, Podcast August 27th, 2007

You’ll hear me mention this on Episode 14 as well, but I figured I should put it out on the blog as well.

Podcamp Philly

If you are in the Philadelphia area, there is a Podcamp Philly Un-Conference being held at Drexel University on September 8th & 9th, 2007.  There is a meet-up on Sept. 7th on Passyunk Avenue at the regular cheesesteak joints as well, but the content portion is over the weekend. It’s free and open to everyone who is involved in producing a podcast or even just listens to podcasts and new media.

I am hoping to drag Ted along if he can make it, but was curious if anyone else we know was planning to attend.  Mike Smith from the Mike Tech Show plans to be there as well.

Send me an email at Keith [AT] if you plan on going and maybe we can meet up for lunch.

Episode 9 – The Triumvirate

Feedback, Networking, OLPC, Podcast, Security, Wiki July 24th, 2007

Recorded: July 17, 2007
Your Hosts: Keith Albright, Rich Niemeier, and Ted Miller
Show Length: 1:26:26

Rich and I welcome new participant Ted Miller to the show. We discuss the history of the computer virus, hardware vendor network management offerings, an Active Directory utility and a handy little wiki. As usual, we end with our website picks and we hope you enjoy.
NOTE: Apologies for the low background noise. We tested the new equipment extensively, but never had this problem in previous test recordings. Rich was also battling a poor hotel Internet connection, so Skype kept throwing us some curves.

Feedback, Podcast June 20th, 2007

Rich and I have been examining the web site statistics over the past couple weeks and are excited to see the number of listeners we have (and hope to keep). Since the web site statistics don’t tell it all, I set up a Frappr map and hope you will take a minute to drop a pin so we know where you are.

Thanks again for listening.

Wiki, Wiki, Weeeeeeeeee!

Feedback, Podcast, Wiki March 23rd, 2007

It’s been a couple of weeks since we published a new episode, so I thought I should give an update.  We should be recording a new episode next week (around 3/28/07) and I hope to have it out by that Friday.  Rich is in his ‘extremely busy time’ of the year with work and travel, so it’s been difficult to find the time to record.  It should settle down to just his normal ‘busy time’ and we’ll try to get on a regular schedule.

Until then; The Wiki pages for the A Couple Of Admins Podcast are up and running.  If you have an idea for a topic that you would like Rich and I to cover, please post it on the ListenerIdeas page at the following link:

A Couple Of Admins Podcast Wiki

Also, please send comments (good and bad) to: RichAndKeith[at]

We’d like to make this podcast as interactive as possible (without actually coming into your living room and recording the show), so please let us know what you’d like to hear about.

Thanks for being patient and for any feedback you can provide.
