Geek I/O! Episode 17: I thought I recognized those pew-pews

This week on Geek I/O we were joined by the Internet's one and only Tom Merrit!  Aside from being a super awesome guy for taking time out of his ridiculously busy schedule to hang out with us, he brought us up a few pegs in the classiness and professionalism department (a few).

We discussed Budlong's Internet crash that caused him to broadcast from the International Space Station, sexy Linux distros, riding the grading curve, being a nerd and writing your own PHP MVC library, newspaper comic on your phone, Budlong's new setup, dealing with Internet trolls, real-time water rendering, and glow-in-the-dark plants.  Plus!  Canada's plastic robot money from space!

In this week's Rant and Review, we watched 1993's Son in Law, the first in our series of movies for Pauly Shore month (yeah, that's right).  Whatever happened to that chubby-cheeked red headed kid?  Why is Perry White saying "to hell with the mashed potatoes"?  Have you greased your subroutine?  Can you solve the mystery of the disappearing sandwich?  Why is it so warm in North Dakota in November?  How may butts do you count?

All this and more on Geek I/O!  Join us, won't you....buuhhhhdeee?
