Shows: HackNip

Coder365's extremely uneven but earnest radio show is recorded via analog equipment (later digital) and covers issues of computers and civil liberty. Coder always brings along a good set of co-hosts to chime in over speakerphone or in person. Prone to getting lost throughout his shows, his main message always comes clear: I'm expressing myself and enjoying it... what are you doing?

HackNip Radio Episode 2 (June 12, 2004) (28:33)
Hosted by Coder and Lattera. Lattera is very difficult to hear. Intro and Outro music has been left out; show was thrown together at the last minute... where's Punchdown?

Coder presents consumer reports: General Electric Cassette Recorder review (negative), Sony Voice Recorder review (negative), Grundig Shortwave Radio (positive).

Society in general is terrified of modifying their stuff, and doesn't fight for Civil Liberties, but they sure care about their fireworks! Stick up for your rights.

As long as everybody keeps talking we'll be OK. Coder thanks Dual for inspiring him to do HackNip and talks about how he started it. Why alternative media is the way to go and why it's so important. Don't record on analog tape, it sucks ass; the new show is being recorded on a sound card. Coder describes an inaccurate error message from Verizon.

It's likely easier to call Australia because you can understand the language. This is like RFA all over again. Dual Parallel promos RFA #76. Coder has decided he likes the echo. Rant about poor Radio Shack practices and getting around them. Dual got a copy of the Walmart corporate directory and shares how to get to all these numbers. Dual makes a call to the repair line at Walmart, then calls the Tax department, then one more call to a hotline, to ask for information on Shotguns as home defense. Dual had a cigarette and is starting to think it's time to scan. Dual asks Coder what his parents thing of his technological adventures. c0d3m0nk33 talks about engaging his girlfriend in discussing whether hacking is illegal or not. SHOW IS CUT OFF AT 51:55 DUE TO MEDIA ERROR. Coder calls his crew back and gets back by 52:59. Trying to determine when the recording got cut off and bitching about missing the cool stuff c0d3m0nk33 was saying. This will be the longest episode ever. Dual has been really swamped. Listening to BinRev vs. Not BinRev and where to listen to them. Some audio problems. Attaching cameras to the outside of your house, and the lack of wisdom in booby-trapping it. Coder tripped and hurt himself, but the show must go on. Dual discusses Fahrenheit 911 and gives a review. The show is interrupted by a Qwest tone. c0d3m0nk33 weighs in with his impressions and urges people, no matter who they are, to vote.
