09-01-05 - Mikee over at WinForums has been hosting our non-English episodes as well as mirror 1 of episode 4. Well, after 11,000 downloads of #4 it looks like he is down for the count for bandwidth overages (That's 2.3 Terrabytes of data). Jason Scott literally laughed at our puny download count so I guess Mirror 2 should hold up for a while yet...

08-28-05 - It's our 1 year anniversary today! And we have some new equipment now, namely a Sony DCR-VX2000. Also on the table is a DCR-HC30 for when tight quarters shooting is needed. Goodbye 8mm, hello MiniDV!

12-19-04 - Forums are back. And we still need translators if anyone is interested. We'll even throw in some free shwag for helping us :).

12-13-04 - We are enjoying another post-release slowdown but episode 4 looms over the horizon. We have a complete lineup of segments already set to be filmed, I would guess a release date of around late February or March 2005. Thanks to everyone that mentions us on message boards and news groups! And don't be afraid to give us some feedback.

12-05-04 - Do you speak a language other than English fluently? Do you have a technical background? Would you like to donate your voice for a worthy cause? If so we want to talk to you! contact[@]packetsniffers.org

12-03-04 - Episode 3 is now available here and here! It's in higher resolution than previous shows and 250MB. Thanks to Jason Scott of the BBS Documentary for our first mirror of the show, be sure to get your pre-orders in for the BBS Documentary.

11-26-04 - We are mostly finished with this episode, but we still haven't gotten final clearance to air 2 segments shot on location in this show. Hopefully Monday we will get all necessary permissions and we can put up a link.

11-23-04 - Patched the forums for the recent howdark phpBB exploit. If anyone has problems with the forums please send us a note. And we only have final editing left to do on episode 3.

11-17-04 - Ok, we've slipped past our release date for episode 3. I'd say, at least 1 more week, maby more. We've got a good show coming I promise. And also of note, I noticed that textfiles.com put a mirror of our shows up. Thanks Jason! Hrm, I wonder if our show will make it onto the BBS documentary you're releasing next month... One can always hope.

11-09-04 - Just an update, we are getting close to finishing up episode 3, but we still have plenty of work to do though. We are aiming for November 15th, but no promises. We have some good stuff in this episode, a Commodore hardware vendor was kind enough to donate some *new* hardware for our review, and other old computer goodness. And if you like modern storage systems (multi-terabyte) you might like this episode too.

10-25-04 - Are people completely stupid? Or am I just totally paranoid? RFID for dental prosthetics. Just so people don't think we are nutters here at TPS... I have no problem (Well, very little problem) with RFID used by a business to keep track of stock in their stores and such. But anything that uses RFID and contains personally identifying data requires a bit more scrutiny. We aren't seeing any black helicopters about, just using common sense.

10-22-04 - An article in Wired yesterday that is very similar to my rant two weeks ago, only about RFID passports.

10-08-04 - A rant about the newly proposed RFID enabled drivers licenses.

9-30-04 - Feel free to give us some feedback about our shows.

9-28-04 - Thanks to the Squizzy crew for giving us a shoutout on episode 10 of their radio show. We are preping to do our principal shooting for episode 3 this week, followed by a few weeks of editing. We have several interesting projects we are deciding on for this show. You'll just have to wait to see what we have when it arrives, I don't think anyone will be disappointed.

9-18-04 - Our forums are up now.

9-15-04 - Episode 2 is done!

9-08-04 - Episode 2 is in final editing, it should be ready within a week. Also, we are in the show rotation over at RantTV. Be sure to check it out.

8-28-04 - Our first show is ready for download here!
