NFTs helped me write this review.

Sold all my album cover NFTs just so I could buy a new deep purple 1 TB IPhone 14 Pro Max so I could write this review in iTunes. As a 48 year old IT veteran and long time listener, Jason and Brian dish common sense like a comically burned out IT guy who has had about enough of your malarky. Here just take it away and get out of my office. And can’t forget the jewel of the show, Dave Bitner, a security expert and self confirmed furry who will make you lie awake at night and wonder if your stuff is secure. I secretly think Dave is an AI - how could he possibly have time to record all those other excellent podcasts?


A Blessing - NOT a Curse

I am a long time listener and also donor. I am a professional chaplain but before heading down this path I was in the tech industry for many years - and I am still a super user that everyone I know seems to think is a free IT support person. Thank you for the lovingly honest way you address your stroke and the amazing resources you provide. I have forwarded some of the links you continue to provide under the show notes. Finally, please use a pseudonym for that person who steals so much of the time on your show! Maybe, “Mr. My Way or No Way.” Or “Screaming Baby Always throwing Crap from his diapers” or “Earth’s #1 Bully.” Well, you get the picture. Keep up the grumping. I know this is not what you normally hear - but your show leaves me spiritually full each and every week. Great geeking advice and great connections with each other and us, your listeners.


Great

Love the podcast it’s the only one listen to on release day, it keeps me entertained while driving around fixing customers broadband issues here in good old Blighty. When Jason reviews on media candy I can’t help but think of the comic guy from the Simpsons (Worst ending everrrrr!) keep it going gents. Stay grumpy!


They keep the podcast real

I held off writing this review for over a year as I had not fully made up my mind. However, time and time again I find myself listing to this show first before my other shows. What I like is this is not a polished and refined podcast, but instead a low key conversation between friends about tech and sometimes politics. While I do not always agree with their opinions, view, or taste, I find that they keep the podcast light, whimsical, and informative. They are defiantly worth a listen.


I look forward to Fridays now thanks 2 these 2 GRUMPY FUCKTARDS!!!

Jason is a Stoned laid back Cali Dude who's quite funny along with Brian the Smug Dueshy Canukie CUNT Obviously the biggest twat waffle of them both! They tell great computer stories as well as report tech news and make good references to computer history as well with each host bouncing off of one another's humor & ideas all along at the same time doing it. What makes the show "GEEKY" but in my opinion QUITE LAME is the SCI-FI movie and show references discussed throughout the program. However I must add I'm not a fan of SCI-FI. If they took all the Sci-Fi stuff out I'd definitely give it a RAVING 6 star review!!! Although I do realize I "MUSK" (ELON) take the good with the bad. The show is very informative & I learn something new each and every week I tune in. GREAT SHOW YOU GUYS!!!!!


So grumpy the are inspiring me to start my own podcast

Been listening for a while, easy to listen to and I often agree with their views but always interested to listen to what they have to say.


Best tech podcast

This is a very enjoyable podcast that keeps me informed on the latest trends in technology. I really like the cybersecurity discussions. Stay grumpy! Jeff W


Love the show!

I’m excited to start season four of Westworld after your review. Chuck Palahniuk over Stephen King? Blasphemy. 😉 ‘Would you rather’ see Happy Meals replace toys with NFTs or 9V batteries?


Good Use of an AirTag

In your last podcast, you mentioned good uses of an AirTag. Last week I rode in RAGBRAI, which is a 7-day bicycle tour across the state of Iowa. It's essentially week-long cycling, camping, and LOTS of drinking festival with 25,000 of other crazy cyclists. One of the biggest challenges after riding 50 to 80 miles a day is finding your campsite where our support crew is located who trucks our camping gear and luggage between towns. This past RAGBRAI, I stashed an AirTag in my luggage, and once I was in town, I used Maps to navigate to exactly where my bag was. I'd say it was pretty convenient! on a side note: Jason, you're an inspiration with your recovery from your stroke and how you've improved your health. Keep up the good work!


🔥🍟

Always look forward to a notifications that a new GOG has been released. When I haven’t played it in a while, my partner will ask “… I haven’t heard you listen to them for a while is everyone okay?”. I look forward to these. 💕💕💕


This is the BEST Podcast!!

This is a highlight of my Fridays, or Saturdays when I save them for a dull weekend. These guys are frank, insightful, and incredibly knowledgeable! They keep the topics moving and post links on episode notes so even if it’s hard to figure out spelling, etc., it’s easy to find stuff. I’ve learned a LOT about current equipment, new tech developments, and sometimes current BS (looking at you, Crypto). THANK YOU, Jason, Brian and Dave! I’ve listened for years and need to tell you how much I appreciate all your work.


Best Tech Around

Opinionated, experienced,, witty, smart with a few habaneros thrown in. Definitely NOT the usual”rewrite of press releases”from FAANG( (MAANG?). Dave Bittner is great added voice, the Force is Strong within him. Seriously,. Good show notes,, mentions of articles, apps, sites, sources, people to check out. Best of the best.


Episode553 hospice

Love the show and appreciate media reviews which I find really helpful. Wanted to thank those on the show reporting on their hospice experience. I have been a hospice doc for 20 years and work with incredible people. Thanks for the positive comments Regular Patreon contributor.

Pi-Hole

Dear Grumpys, I love the show and I can't wait every week for the next, so I started listening to the old ones from the newest to the oldest waiting for the time when the news will be outdated and irrelevant. Guess what? I don't think anything will be outdated even in the next decade... I am now in 2020 when Brian was about to deploy a Pi-Hole to block ads from tracking. How did it end? By the way, if it is still on a shelf go and grab it because it takes only 10 minutes to set it up. About your wife's desire to get some targeted ads of her choice (I had the same issue with my wife), you can add those domains to a whitelist. But even better, if your network is segmented and your professional devices are segregated from the house and the guest network you can add the Pi-Hole only to the segment that YOU use. This is my tutorial for deploying the Pi-Hole https://blog.dftorres.ca/?p=1347 Stay grumpy and hope to see you guys here in Toronto eventually.


For real tho…

“Richie Rich and Nancy Pelosi Discuss the News”: 3/5 stars ”Bittner’s Tidbitts on Star Wars, Paintball Guns, Prepping, and Occasionally Even Security”: 1337/5 stars, A+++ would listen again


Entertaining and useless!

I love listening to this show but I don't know why. I get no practical or usefull information out of it but it is just straight up entertaining. I used to not like it when they would trash Trump or get political but now I just have to remind myself that these are the people who think democracy is at stake when they see a guy in a buffalo hat and I really don't care if someone disagrees with me politically so keep up the great work and I can't wait for next week's grumpyness. Cheers!


Great Show!

Jason and Brian are worth at most 2 1/2 stars each but that adds up to 5 stars so there you go!


Great grumpiness!

Love these guys. Love the banter between them. I always put them at the top of the list when the show arrives. Security Ha is one of my favs as is the library. I have gotten some great suggestions and I even tried some they stated weren't good (and they were right!) Dave Bitner is a great addition to Security Ha. Just got back from vacation 😢 and had 5 episodes to listen to. Score! Keep on grumping!


Great stuff

I wish I’d found this podcast sooner. The guys are great. The episodes are very educational & informative! Keep up the great work! “Insert Snarky Comment”


Great Tech Show w/ Syfy Sprinkled In

Jason and Brian are amazing hosts delivering great tech content. I especially love Jason‘s detail to the quality of the podcast that they produce as there are many podcasts out there that sound like crap. They are informed and do their research and don’t fly by the seat of their pants for the most part. My favorite part is the Syfy sorry no wait security section with Dave. You guys make me laugh every week. Keep up the good work.


Why not

Just as you take a trip to my homecountry for "free" moves and/or tv-shows I listen to your pod adfree in the same country. To Brian, Good for you that you embraced the culture of Canada To Jason: I wish you a great recovery and good luck with the new show on the tube, I am going to watch it for free and with no ads :) (And yes I will add to the tip yar someday, not today, but someday)


Just take my moneys you filthy animal!

This podcast cures my itch of the weekly grumps - after each episode I can always say to myself -- Man still have something to look forward to in a few years when i can scream "get off my interweb you tick-snap-grammer"


Team Grumpy

Jedi Bittner pointed me to Sith GOG show a few years ago and now I am a full member of team grumpy. Thank you for the superb podcast in every respect. The Internet will be better soon! Not.


5 star show!

This is a 5 star show. Gave it 4 stars just to annoy Jason.


Entertaining way to kill an hour

They hate everything about the internet but there isn’t much to be hopeful for so can you blame em?


It Was Time To Show My Appreciation Again

It's been 2 years now that Grumpy Old Geeks has been my go to for making housework less of a chore. It was sad when you guys went to once a week although understandable. Cleaning days are twice a week and you had me covered. It was a hard decision wether to listen to you while cleaning upstairs or wait till later in the week when I did the downstairs. However, the upstairs won as I was less likely to be bothered by my child husband. I always learn something new, often something bizarre, sometimes discover something to add to my shopping list and am thoroughly entertained by the banter between the two of you. The inclusion of Dave B., for security segments (mostly 😉) is truly a delightful experience after one manages to get over all the unnerving information. It's a bit like a Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde performance. One never knows where those conversations might go. Grumpy Old Geeks is honest, insightful, irreverent and revealing ... it's something to look forward to once a week. Thanks!


Grumpy, informative, professional… ha!

I love this podcast! I find the balance of Jason and Brian to be reminiscent of my relationship with my own best friend and it’s comforting to know that I’m not alone in my grumpiness. If I had a shot of whiskey for every time Jason says “exactly” it Brian says “mmhmm” I’d be dead always. I love the show, I enjoy the insight and appreciate the quality in production! Thanks for many great years of listening. Sorry it took so long to write this review, perhaps like self driving cars I moved the posts a few times.


Always a great and informative show.

Y’all wanted to make sure it works well here it is.


Older and grumpier

Sage advice from two travelers still on the digital journey. Listen and learn. Too bad they are old enough to remember programming in Fortran and GRID laptops that had a total memory of 362K.
