Episode 14 – It’s The End of The World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine..)

January 19, 2012 in Podcast, Survival by Societus

Well, you know who you are, congratulations, you have angered me into a new episode, so pat yourself on the back, lift your head up high, and blow your brains out! I find it unlikely that the type of person who would listen to my type of podcast could seriously think this way, so I am going to believe that this episode is the direct result of a laser-targeted talking point with the intent of sending me off into a tie-raid.

This episode is a kind of motivational speech on putting fatalism in its place, I hope you enjoy it, and take what I say to heart. Don’t lose hope for the future, just profit from everyone who idiotically does.

Holiday Break and Content Questionnaire

December 27, 2011 in Uncategorized by Societus

I never really mentioned it per se, so this is largely a reminder that I am taking this week off, so I can do things with friends and family whom I don’t often get to see.

I have been tinkering with the idea of recording my podcasts over the road, so I can put out more content, if anyone here is interested in me trying this out, put a positive comment on the page. I will likely be trying a couple of these to get a feel for the quality I can expect if I do this full time.

December 23, 2011 in Explicit, Podcast, Resources by Societus

Hey guys, sorry for being late in posting this, if you can’t tell by listening to this episode, I was sick and slept for the vast majority of the day before realizing I hadn’t uploaded the audio, but here you go.This one is a bit long, and has significantly more editing (had to remove the lung shredding coughs)

Today is all about the basics in putting together prep kits for various needs, and at the end is a neat trick for using a flashlight like a room lamp

  • Everyday Carry Kits
  • 72 hour/Camping Kits
  • Extended/Evac Disaster Kits
  • Car Kits

Tune in Tuesday afternoon for a Computers episode on purchasing affordable PCs and sizing your electronics needs.

Gadget Review : Thinkpad Tablet

December 17, 2011 in Uncategorized by Societus

Hey guys, got a tech review for you. Not something I do much, but this tablet is hard to find in stores, and if anyone wants to get a feel for whether they might want it, Ive got hands on for a while to help judge what to expect. Im also trying out a new lower resolution video format to help with the longer start times compared to other videos. If you folks think the load times are still too long, let me know if you would prefer me to chop up the videos into 15 minute chunks and use YouTube.
