Show #45 - Final Episode

Sun, 21 Oct 2007 03:02:51 PDT

Sunday, October 21, 2007, Podcast, Show #045 – Closing the Doors - More and Less This is the last Podcast. Yep, I’m closing the Doors here at Norbtek, well, sort of. As I told you weeks ago, I was going to change things and the time is now. I will be giving you less & more, different and the same. Intrigued, well hang around and find out what’s happening. Norbtek has been a proud member of the network, "If its tech its here", and also the Podcast Community. Whether you are a PODCASTER or a LISTENER, there is something for you at Check us out along with the other great shows at First off I want to apologize for the lateness of this podcast. Usually it’s only 2-3 weeks, but it has been almost a month. Well I have been working hard on the new project and that has consumed my time, along with daily family life. I also went to Disneyland for a week, so that did not help on the podcasting front. But I wanted to thank each and every one of you that have downloaded any or all of my podcasts over the last 2-1/2 years. You have made this journey exciting and definitely worth it. So I’m not giving up, just going to change it all up. The podcast has been revamped; the blog has been totally re-built from the ground up with a fresh new look and feel and I even have a new delivery method. I wanted to reach out to more people and the only way to do that was to be delivering content more often. So, I’m going to be coming to you every day. Yep that’s right, every day. Now you’re saying “How is he going to put out a daily 30-40 minute show when he could not put one out but once every 2-3 weeks?” Well, I’m not a masochist; I will not be putting out 30-40 minute podcasts on a daily basis, but I will put out a 10 minute or so podcast each day focusing on one tech item rather than the way I have been doing it with a whole bunch of items. This is the Less & More & the Different. This is the Daily Podcast Now some of you might say, “Hey, I liked those themed shows with a bunch of items all related some how. “ Don’t worry; I will still be putting those types of shows out because I love doing them. This is the Same. This is the Extended Podcast. “Why?” you may ask. Well, I wanted to get more exposure to gain more listeners. Sort of an ego thing if you will, but I really wanted to cover more and be out there more too. Plus it affords me an opportunity to get some advertising deals that I just could not make the commitment to previously. I would like for this endeavor, my hobby, to pay for itself if not at least help lessen the out of pocket expenses. Remember, this is a Low Budget Production ©. The site has an all new name, look, and feel. I decided to get with the times and go to one of the best and more flexible blogging platforms. So I’m moving to WordPress and utilizing a plugin called PodPress that allows me to have a Flash player in the post which allows you to listen to the associated podcast. You have seen them on many other podcasts I’m sure. But the really cool thing about this plugin is that I can put out a specialized feed for Categories. This was the Holy Grail for me. It gave me the ability to have 3 feeds for the show; Daily, Extended, and Comprehensive feeds. I wanted to give you the listener an ala cart option to the podcast. Something you aren’t getting with Cable or Satellite TV, or any podcast as far as I’m aware of. I don’t know if I ever mentioned how came into being. Well about three years ago I was talking to some co-workers about Hi-Def TVs, mp3 players, DVRs and such because I am the guy that is into all that kind of stuff. Well, one of our friends came up and asked what was going on and, Rodman Marquez said, “Talking with Norbtech.” That was it, right after we adjourned I was on GoDaddy looking up “Norbtech”. Well, it was taken by a German firm. So I changed up the spelling to use a ‘k’ in place of the ‘ch’. No one had take [...]

Its Coming...

Less is more

Sat, 22 Sep 2007 11:32:23 PDT

"Less is more."
— Mies van der Rohe, Dutch-American "Modernist" architect (1886-1969)

This is a simple truth. Working in the construction field for the last 15 years of my life, this concept is so true. But then again, More IS More. I want to give you the readers of this blog and listeners of the Podcast More, and Less, at the same time. How can one fit 10lbs of stuff in a 5lb bag? Well, as a Mechanical Coordinator, this is what I do for a living, fitting gobs of mechanical utilities into a really tight space. I struggled on how to do that with the podcast and the blog for a while and then it came to me, I'll just (TOP SECRET INFORMATION DELETED).

Yes, this will be exciting. I have been working hard on this for a few months now (much to my wife's chagrin). So be expecting the change to begin here in the next month or so. I am still working out a few bugs and polishing things up. I don't think anyone will be disappointed. I will be giving you Less and More.

So keep watching and listening. More dateils on when the change will happen.

Movie Review: Live Free or Die Hard

Thu, 28 Jun 2007 01:36:13 PDT

"WARNING - POSSIBLE MOVIE SPOILERS"I just went to see Bruce Willis in the latest episode of the Die Hard series, Live Free or Die Hard. Wow! What a great movie!Ok, ok, this is a tech blog not "Ebert & Roeper at the Movies", but stick with me on this because I guarantee you there is tech involved. Sure the plot is simple; While the bad guys, lead by Timothy Olyphant's character, Thomas Gabriel, wreak havoc our hero, a New York cop John McClane becomes "a fly in the ointment", "a monkey in the wrench" and there are lots of things blowing up, bullets flying, great one liners, and tech! Lots of tech. There was action, action, and more action. And yes plenty of tech, lots of LCD screens, laptops, PDAs, cell phones, flexible USB keyboards, and a lot more. The Apple ad guy, Justin Long, who used Apple equipment in the movie was the geek that McClain was sent to haul in for questioning .Justin Long's character, a Black Hat Hacker named Matt Farrell who is wanted for questioning by the FBI, plays well against Bruce Willis' gruff and gritty Detective John McClane. While the the reality of the hacking of systems as depicted in the film is no way that easy, like hacking into the FBI's computer system, the possibe vulnerability of the Nation's cyberinfrastructures are brought into question. Ferrell uses his hacking skills like McClane uses cars to take out helicopters, which gives us the film quotes; Foster: "You just killed a helicopter with a car!" McClane: "I was out of bullets. " Great lines and there are plenty of them. even the bad guy has soem good ones like; John McClane: [after covering a webcam] "Freddy, can you trace these guys?" Gabriel: "Mr. McClane covering the camera does not turn off the microphone."While I did not like Die Hard 2: Die Harder (it really sucked), and Die hard with a Vengeance (Die Hard 3) as decent, this movie was more like the original. I loved the original Die Hard movie. Actually, I don't ever feel like its Christmas season until I see that movie as it had a Christmas theme and there are Christmas jingles sung in the movie by Sgt. Al Powell (aka Reginald Veljohnson). I digress. The feel of the plot, the pace of the film and the action sequences were impressive. The visual effects were great and it is amazing what can be done with CGI these days. We were hanging on the edge of our seats at times and even jumping out of them, like my wife did once or twice.It has been a long time since I was in a theater and the whole audience got into the movie. When McClain knocks off another bad guy the whole theater cheered. I paid $9.75 for my ticket and I feel that I got my money's worth. I left that theater feeling great having forgotten about the real world and all of its troubles. While I don't think anyone would categorize it as a "Feel Good Movie", well except for geeks and gun lovers, I sure felt great! So take some time out of your week and go see this movie. If you loved the original Die Hard, then you will love this movie.I'm giving this movie 4 out of 5 microphones.[...]

Listener Feedback from Show #33

Sun, 15 Apr 2007 01:13:30 PDT

Hey Norb!

Just finished listening to your
latest cast... good stuff. I'm a
BBQ nut so I especially enjoyed

Not necessarily a recipe, but a
method I use for grilling. This
is my own method, to each
their own, but it consistently
produces great steaks.

Lea & Perrins Worcestershire
McCormick - laGrille -
Montreal Steak Seasoning
Your favorite steak! (Rib Steak,
T-Bone, Sirloin Tip)

* Ensure the steaks are not
frozen by placing from the
freezer to the refrigerator the
night before.

* About an hour before the grill
will be ready, prepare steaks.
* Place steaks on a cookie sheet
and with a large two-prong fork,
poke holes in the steaks.
* Liberally cover the steaks
with Worcestershire Sauce by
sprinkling it out of the jar.
* Sprinkle on Montreal Steak
(Ensure that you put the
Worcestershire Sauce on first
before the Montreal Steak

Seasoning otherwise it will wash
it right off.)
* Let the steaks sit out in room
temperature for the next hour
to marinade.
* Prepare your grill, with
charcoal brickettes I create a
mound and set on fire, once the
coals are burning well I spread
them out but only to one side of
the bar-b-q. I then place the
grill back on the BBQ to heat up.

* For Gas grills, light off the
burners on a med. to med-high
setting to heat up the grill.
* Once the grill is good and hot,
place the steaks on the grill
directly over the coals. Sear the
steaks on each side no more
than about 3-5 minutes
depending on how hot of a fire
you have. Naturally, the
hotter, the less time.
* Once the steaks have been
seared on both sides, remove
the steaks from being directly
over the coals. I use a weber
kettle grill (the round one) so
instead of moving the steaks, I
simply rotate the grill 180
degrees away from the direct
heat, but the steaks remain on
the hot portion of the grill.
* Place the lid on the grill and
let the steaks sit another 3-5
minutes then turn.
* Another 3-5 minutes and
they should be ready to serve.

The trick is knowing your grill
and how hot of a fire you are
working with. You don't want
too hot of a fire otherwise the
steaks take on a leathery
texture making them cook too
fast and end up being tough.

Additionally, the heat of the fire
will also determine the amount
of time you keep the steaks
before flipping them. Of course,

how you like your steak will
also play a factor, i.e. --
Medium-Rare, Medium,
Medium-Well, Well-done.

That's it... It might take a couple
of trys to get your heat and
times just right, but the steaks
are awesome!

How Many Pixels Does It Take To ...

Mon, 12 Feb 2007 19:33:27 PST

Ever wonder how many Mega-Pixels it would take to print a larger photo than a 4x6 or 5x7? Well it really depends on how tight you want the printed pixels, or dots, represented in Dots Per Inch (DPI). Say you wanted to print an 11x14 photo at 150 DPI: You would multiply 11x150= 1650 (pixels) and 14x150=2100 pixels which becomes (1650x2100=3,465,000) or 3.5 Mega Pixels. Now if you wanted a really detailed photo you might want to print it out at 200 DPI. So the same 11x14 photo would be 11x200=2200 (pixels) and 14x600=2800 (pixels) which is (2200*2800=6,160,000) or roughly 7 Mega Pixels.
Check out this article at for more information.
