New IRC Chat server for the live show courtesy of Donald Burr at irc.borgchat.net and room #nosillacast. Try third party chat clients Colloquy, Adium, or my favorite, Textual from CodeUX.

Allister Jenks explains how he used Conditional Formatting in Excel to find patterns to help him at work, and of course he created a Clarify document to show you how he did it. In Chit Chat Across the Pond Bart explains on more detail that still confused me about secure email, and then launches into Taming the Terminal, Part 2 of n. We take our first baby steps and finally get to type in some simple commands.
In this episode we’ll try to eliminate some misconceptions about why a VPN is important and how S/MIME email is cross platform. Dr. Matt tells us about a free OSX VPN client called Tunnelblick from code.google.com. Kirschen Seah from FreeRangeCoder.com reviews Airstash from Wearable. How Howard in the Apple store told us his story of tragedy and triumph, and why I’m feeling good about having THREE backups with CrashPlan. Ken Wolf reviews Buffer from BufferApp.com.

In Chit Chat Across the Pond I had the great pleasure of talking to Stewart Cheifet, TV host of the Computer Chronicles and Net Cafe, and now at cheifet.com.
This week I’ll talk about a new set of tutorials I created to give you step by step instructions on how to do the email signing/encrypting that Bart walked us through a few weeks ago, we’ll get a better answer on how to record radio stations, I’ll talk about my quest to find an easy, reliable way to broadcast a live demo and my lovely face at the same time. Then we’ve got a rather mammoth episode of Chit Chat Across the Pond with Security light, a dumb question from Ran about what you can do with VPNs, and then Bart starts a segment called Taming the Terminal – part 1 of n.
First I’m going to take you on an adventure where Belgium, Canada, and Ireland help me to get cool new social media links for the show. Then Allister Jenks is going to challenge the RPN Calculator fanatics with his favorite iOS Calculator Pcalc. Then George from Tulsa is going to explain why he had to leave Google Plus. In Chit Chat Across the Pond we’re going to have LOTS of fun – Donald Burr will be on to teach us how to create a VPN Server using our Macs. Enjoy the ScreenSteps Tutorial on how to do it yourself!
