Hey, what's going on? This is a one and all the it in the D show broadcasting live from our respective houses. This is Bob the sales guy. It's quarantine day again. That is David. Randy. I do the Twitters is doing the Twitter. Find us online it in the d.com where you'll find all the things. And for episode three 47, we're just going to be, uh, we've got about 20 stories on tap and uh, and see what happens. It feels like Groundhog's day against, like there's nothing really new going on, but there's everything new going on.

Yeah, it's, yeah. We'll find new people to help and new ways to try to seduce digital Debar who knows?

Hey, you know what? You may fire when ready.

Hey, well yeah, so for those of you watching, we decided we were not going to force you to watch the intro this time.

This is episode three 47 of the one and only it in the D show. We are a bump broadcasting live in my living room. Dave's in his basement. Randy is in his front room, bedroom front room, mine it in the d.com where you will find all the things and uh,

again, as, as has become the norm. Uh, this is the part of the show where we usually talk about all our upcoming events and that kind of stuff. And yet still none. Nope. Nope. Stay at home. Got extended again then. Uh, so we're staying home. In fact, I got to, I got bored enough today. Uh, I know this, I know this makes Randy happy. I reorganized my bar. I uh, he was a, he was bitching cause all the bottles were intermixed. And so now all the vodkas are with the vodka is all the whiskeys are with the whiskeys and yeah.

Well plus we can't have events cause you don't want to get shamed by your neighbors or shamed by Facebook. And you know,

dude, like apparently social distancing snitches are a thing. That was one of the stories that bounced across like barbecue. Becky and I dunno what it w what would it be? Um, I don't know. Social distancing. Stacy, I don't know,

wrap on you, Karen. Um, well no, they're talking about, um, well there, there's, I wanted a couple of things I want to get into. One, the guy that is cutting hair out in West mission, right. And you know, he chose, um, cutting hair. He chose his livelihood over his help and basically open up his business. You know, he was, I don't know if he was ready to go bankrupt, but he already was fed up or I don't remember the exact what you know, but uh, he opened up in basically all the news caught wind, everyone co in social media, caught wind and uh, you know, there, I guess there was a like two hour wait to get a haircut. Cause like, just like me, I need, I need to get my in the borrower, but what am I supposed to do? Um, so this guy opened up and uh, yeah, uh, internet didn't like that very much. He basically didn't close them down.

Yeah. And I mean, I, it's not helping or it, I mean, I guess depending on your point of view maybe, but like the, uh, the local judge, uh, said he's not enforcing the, the closure order. Uh, he's not enforcing a restraining order. So I mean you're, you're really getting to the point where this shit is, there's going to be some like some ugly legal battles about, about this crap now. Like, forget, you know, I think my favorite one is, you know, don't worry so much about, uh, you know, the U S gravy seals, mealtime six, uh, don't worry about them as much. Uh, as you know, there's like this, this crap is going to be going on in the courts for years.

Well, apparently like there, there, there's a story that you were talking about this doctor, um, I guess he attended a rally and was hugging people and they caught him on Facebook and they basically trashed on him and his practice got a 68 year old doctor and they had to suspend him for a week. And really, you just like hugging people. Like, he wasn't really even like doing anything malicious or mean or angry. Um, but apparently like, yeah, across the country these complaints have led to shut down to like dog groomers,

From The Podcast

So what do a couple of IT guys from Detroit talk about when they go to the bar? Welcome to the IT in the D show, brought to you by long-time Detroit IT veterans Bob Waltenspiel (The Sales Guy), and Dave Phillips (The Geek). The duo has been putting on free networking events for the metro Detroit information technology community for over 10 years, helped more than 1,200 people find new jobs, and been featured in local and national news stories and publications for their efforts. After taking on speaking engagements starting in 2011 that helped refine their message, in 2013 they took their ramblings to a broadcast format that has proven to be far more popular than anyone expected. The IT in the D show is more conversational and less instructional – it is far more geared toward entertainment and local goings-on in the metro Detroit area than a deep-dive about specific technical issues. It’s a bar chat, not technical seminar. You’ll hear more movie quotes than MySQL queries and more Depeche Mode than development methodologies. Not that the guys don’t roll up their sleeves and deep dive from time to time, but with guests ranging from local CIOs and CEOs to roller derby girls and pop culture icons from the 80s, don’t let the “IT” in “IT in the D” scare you. Each weekly two-hour show typically includes current events and stories, guests ranging from local entrepreneurs to local IT rock stars to people with great local stories to tell, rants, raves and everything you’d expect from a couple of guys who have known each other and been drinking together for nearly two decades.
