Fathers Day Gifts, Apple News, Unraid Setup and Review – HGG405

With Father’s day coming up, Jim reviews his Acrylic Humidor that he purchased a few months ago at Amazon. Mike covers the latest Apple Announcements from WWDC 2019 and then dives into his Unraid set up. It is a complete review from top to bottom!  I think you will enjoy the show.

Joe – Hey Jim, I made it back to dry land and reality (unfortunately)

All the cigars in the gift shops that I went to in Belize and Mexico sold fake Cubans.. didn’t have time to seek out a real shop..  In any case I did pick up a couple in the gift shop on the ship for you and Mike. Let me know where I can send them.. also, if you want that copy of 8.1 MC, I will throw that in the box as well.
