Jim and Andrew finally record the show they have been talking about for 4-5 months, a show with their wives; to be able to capture a glimpse into the flip side of living with a Tech Guy, as well as the technologies that they use in their everyday lives as a result of their tech husbands.
Jims’ wife, Sarah, is the Technology Coordinator at Jim and Sarah’s church, and works with various technologies including Windows 7, Microsoft Office, media presentation software, and the management of media services within the church community.
Andrews’ wife, Michelle, is the General Manager of a Gymnastics Club who have gymnasts attending the gym from 2 through to 62 years of age. The technologies in Michelle’s life include Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7, as well as Microsoft Office, and Quick Books for running the finances in the business.
Both Sarah and Michelle’s work environments use Windows Home Server to perform a role of file server, as well as bringing the workstation backup and recovery capabilities we so often talk about on the podcast.

Jim and Jamie are together again to talk about the ins and the outs of this last weekends Lincoln Marathon. Jamie ran the half and Jim ran the full. Jim gives some helpful and some not so helpful feedback from the race as well as covering the technology around the race. This years race was covered by mtec and they provided a bunch of options for both splits and a video finish.
There were tons of examples of clock blocking during the race including some runners who were walking at mile one and the first water station. Jim has some suggestions on how Lincoln could do a better job at the start line.
On the positive side, the race is well supported by the community. Food is plentiful right on the course and the crowd was amazing. The race pacers were second to none! Good job pacers!
Both of us then spend some time talking about pre race prep.
It’s a longer podcast by Fitness Tech Standards! Enjoy
