About the podcast

In this episode, JP shares his experience with the "mandated" COVID test to come back to the States from Germany; apparently, it is on the "honor system" because nobody actually wanted to see the results. It seems that almost all of these "mandates" are fictitious. Supposedly, quarantines are mandatory (same with negative COVID tests when flying into the States). But if they are not enforced, or even check, they are really voluntary.

From there, we discuss the need for good "computer hygiene" after one of JP's clients caught a "ransomware virus" - this was really no bueno. To compound the challenge, the last valid backup the client had was from 15 months prior. It is a shit sandwich and he had to take a giganourmous bite out of it.

From there, the conversations drifts to a favorite topic at The Outliers Inn, that being beer. And we are graced with a visitor from Sweden who brings a much-needed, and particularly positive, energy with her.
