Cyber security, preventing attacks!

Click here to view the original post.

Cyber security, preventing attacks!
Highlander “Survival and Prep Techs

Cyber security, preventing attacksIn the program below we revisit the need for cyber security not only on your devices but in the real world. I discuss what measures we need to take in our everyday lives that we should and must put in place if we want to maintain security within our lives.

Cyber security, preventing attacksThere is so much to consider when it comes to security, every prepper preps for security in some way but most of us neglect the computer/device side of things. We will discuss what security measures you need to use on your pc such as antivirus, popup blockers, basic operating skills that will protect you from intruders that want to get your information and use it for nefarious purposes. I will discuss the absolute need for opsec (operational security) when you are online. What we want is to not share your details on social media, in emails, or in forms you fill out.

4-4-16 imagesThe biggest causes of identity theft and infections are caused because of poor security practices. I will give you a few tips on what to look for, what to do in case you think you are compromised and how to prevent it in the first place. With the looming threat of cyber terrorism just over the horizon our own technology can be used against us if we are not careful. Routine maintenance and common sense is what will protect you from attacks.

Hopefully I give some pointers and make your lives a bit easier and less worrisome over this, even though it is on a lot of our minds. We hear of china posing a larger threat when it comes to cyber-attacks. Don’t let your devices be used to attack another, this may sound crazy but I will explain during the show what this entails and what to do about it. So enjoy the show and as always questions are welcome!

Knife Depot & Schrade KnivesOn this episode we will talkwith Andrew from Schrade Knives, which are available from our new sponsor www.knife-depot.com. We talk about their new line of 2016 knives, if you have watched shot show coverage you might have seen a few.  A neat little bush crafting style knife the 2016 SCHF55 which is a Brian Griffin Design could be yours.

3-21-16 9_56d4cb4d0a6240.75543610This is a great knife for general bush crafting duties. If anyone knows me they know I love my knives and I can say this one is a winner. Tune in and come to our chat for a chance to win! I will also talk about a few other things regarding Schrade that I love and a little history I have of my own with their products. The company really stands behind their products, I have dealt with them in the past and they do not disappoint. They offer great quality knives at an affordable price. I have many of their blades, some new some old, and I like them all.

We will have a great time with Andrew who is very knowledgeable in the blade arena. Andrew also wants to discuss SCHF55 designed by Brian Griffin, the SCHF56L and SCHF56, as well as the SCH111 and SCH112 which are karambit styled blades. If you follow Schrade lately they are coming out with some exciting stuff, and always skirt the edge of design, they have some interesting makers and all around something for everyone.

I personally own a few of their large fixed blades, a few small ones, a few of the old uncle henry styles, which I still carry today. So whether you like old style or new there is one out there for you, so listen to the show and I guarantee it will be a good time!

Movies & Shows for the Prepper!

Movies & Shows for the Prepper!
Highlander “Survival and Tech Preps

Movies & Shows for the PrepperThis show I will talk about the best Prepper style movies, and television shows. There are many that have popped up within the past 20 years and a lot of them make you think, are you really prepared? We may see a lot of these as fiction, but some actually do a lot of research and are somewhat accurate, and we may just learn a few things from them.

Movies & Shows for the PrepperThe need to be prepared is never ending and I try to get my sources of ideas from anywhere I can. Movies and tv shows give a somewhat different prospective than some websites, and blogs that you may see. I am a big fan of a lot of movies and tv shows that portray the cleverness of humans in situations that are dire. I also like to see the problems that are solved with having very little, the base of prepping as we know it, doing a lot with a little.

3-14-16 Noreen21There are some very good low budget films out there that I will mention and some that everyone has probably heard of. Some of which you may think are not prepper oriented but I will break them down and what we could learn from them. I do not want to give away the ones I have chosen but I will say, a few have some not so good endings, and those that have good ones. Lives are lost, lives are saved, and the prepared sometimes end up both wining and loosing.

This should be a fun show that we can maybe get some inspiration from and ideas that may further our prepping knowledge. I know many still think we cannot learn anything from movies or television shows, however a lot of scenarios I have seen in them can and have happened. The thing I learned years ago about science fiction, a lot of times it ends up becoming science fact, and we have and learned a lot from scifi creations. So enjoy the show and ask questions and make suggestions!

Zombie Survival Camp!
Highlander “Survival & Tech Prep

Zombie Survival Camp MarkOn this Episode we welcome Mark from theZombieSurvival Camp to talk about the services this camp offers. I know what you are thinking, the zombie survival camp, are you serious is this even legit? But It is, a real camp to train for firearms, crossbow, self-defense with knives and melee weapons, as well as bug out bags, first aid, shelter building, using night vision and team leadership.

3-6-16 Groupofgirls_1Mark has a lot of stories to talk about doing this as long as he has  and he knows his stuff! The need for training is an absolute these days when we are not certain of our future. What he offers is an edge for those that would otherwise be helpless in a shtf/wrol situation.

I know what everyone thinks when they hear the name zombie, but this is a genuine service and well worth it! Join us as we discuss the in’s and out of training for survival, and defense. It may be hard for some people to grasp the concept of having to use these skills to survive but it may save you or a loved one’s life some day.

3-6-16 InstructorsWe all know the world might not be the friendliest when shtf , so it is great we have a service like Zombie Survival Camp to offer what they do. Personally I feel this type of camp is one of the greatest things that could ever happen to the prepper community. It provides that training that you just simply cannot get anywhere else. Sure you can get firearms training in places, but when you combine shelter making, first aid, small arms, crossbows, and the other numerous services, you just simply cannot beat it.

Listen in as we talk about all of the cool things he does for the patrons of his service at the Zombie Survival Camp. As always enjoy the show!

Low Tech Prepping!

Low Tech Prepping
Highlander “Survival & Tech Preps

Prepping for a Low Tech Life Powers-outElectricity is a great thing, until it is no more. We get so used to having light at a flick of a switch. But what happens when those lights go out? On Survival and Tech Preps we have talked about high tech vs low tech in previous shows, now I want to talk about prepping for a low tech lifestyle.

2-29-16 imagesElectricity is great to have and a lot of preppers are planning solar, wind, and other means. The fact is these other sources are temporary, it is not sustainable. Batteries die, the solar panels wear out, the chargers go bad. So what then? Well in my opinion the best thing to do is prepare for the ability to survive without electricity.

2-29-16 images (1)In this episode I will talk about key aspects we need to think about when going low tech. How do we cook? How do we prepare water, how do we communicate. All of this might sound simple to some and hard for others but I hope to bridge the gap between what is myth and what is realistic.

We all have heard those say they can survive for years by themselves, well lets back up there a second it isn’t that easy. Those that claim this will most likely fall very short. This is not a topic that will be summed up in one episode but I hope to get a little stepping stone for those of you that might want to plan on going off grid if shtf happens.

I will also talk about diet, weapons that are low tech, bug out items, food preps, and other things that we may need to start our journey on the low tech life. There are many aspects to this that you may or may not have thought of, but with a little knowledge and a little planning one can thrive if done right, so sit back and enjoy the show and hope you and I can learn something!

Myths and Rants!

Click here to view the original post.

Prepper Myths and Rants
Highlander “Survival and Tech Preps

Myths and RantsAre you familiar with the ever ending myths that go behind prepping? I will answer some  of these questions that non preppers ask all of the time. Questions such as, are we all just paranoid loons? Do we all wear tin foil hats waiting for the end? Why do you think the world is going to end? You are crazy if you think the government will not protect us.

Those above mentioned are but just a few questions that anyone familiar with prepping or visiting the different forums and blogs run across. There are so many misunderstandings about preppers that I think it is time to talk about the relenting myths and labels that we all face today in this world.

Many view preppers as people who just waste money on food, supplies, weapons and the like, yet they are not so quick to judge when a katrina event happens and they are stuck with nothing.

2-15-16 5c887b059fb44ab401fba51e0cce13efThe prepper lifestyle is not a new event, we have been doing it for eons. Our ancestors did it, and did it as a lifestyle to survive. Today with all of the modern conveniences a lot of people do not realize that the local super market generally only have a few days worth of food on hand for the public and if that stops… well you don’t have to guess what would happen then. Riots, looting, and normally good people doing bad things to feed themselves are none to common in the event of a disaster.

I think the biggest part of prepping is education. When we see the conditions of today’s world and the decline of society as a whole we all have to think toward the future and what will come tomorrow, next week, next month, etc.. My rants will be on the judgement of preppers and some on preppers themselves. We have a lot of flaws when it comes to preparedness and attitude that go’s with it. Please forgive me if I strike any nerves but a lot of stuff I have seen and currently see about preppers that I think needs to be brought to light, so please enjoy the show!

Highlander “Survival &Tech Preps

sheathsOn last week’s show (see here) we talked about types of steel, chemical makeup of steel, alloys, additives and how it is made. We also went over the most common steels and what is a good choice for you in your particular area and use. Also discussed was handle types, and what may or may not fit you, also various ways to sharpen, and I recommended a few sharpeners that are most common and easy to use. I touched a bit on sheaths.

This episode I discuss sheaths, what is a good choice, various grinds on knives and what may best suite you for your needs. I will also go over how to maintain your knife as far as oiling, what oils to choose, how to get rid of rust, and maintain your blades luster. I will also go over how to carry a knife, and what may apply to you for your situation.

Knife Choice, Care and Maintenance in SHTF
Highlander “Survival & Tech Preps

KnifeThe need to protect your tools in shtf is key, you might not be able to just go to the store and buy new ones or order one on ebay or amazon. So the question we will answer on this show is how do we maintain our knives in a situation where resources are at a minimum?

1-25-16 Huckberry_How_to_Care_for_your_Knife_4-300x200First we have to look at what you are maintaining, whether it is carbon steel, stainless, or a hybrid of both. During the show I explain what all of these terms mean and how they would apply to your environment you are in or plan to be. I also touch on what type of knife would be best during shtf, what to look for and what to avoid. I go over the uses of the knife in a wilderness or everyday shtf situation.  I discuss what accessories you should carry with a knife, what kind of carry system you should look for and the types and the various uses for each type.

IH7N0054There will also come a time in a shtf that may require you to have to defend yourself with a knife, I recommend a good knife for this and some good instructional videos that will help in the aid of learning how to defend yourself if the time arises. I also recommend a few classes you can take for defense and survival for the use of knives so that you may want to consider this if you have no experience with a true survival situation.

Highlander visits Makers on Acres
Highlander “Survival & Tech Preps

Makers on Acres 160x160In this episode we talk with Brett Bauma about his upcoming show Makers On Acres Tech, Build and Grow. Brett will go over the basics of what his show is all about.

12-21-15-8f2cd116f1f4cda0c8b03e59d379e9bc-300x200Brett Bauma, the host of the Makers On Acres Tech, Build and Grow show is going to talk to us about his upcoming shows, and where they are headed. Brett started Makers On Acres with his 8 year old son about 6 months ago with a vision of coupling homesteading and technology to bring their audience a new perspective on efficient paths to self reliance. Brett comes from a background of being a Journeyman level carpenter, and many years in the automation, process control and electrical fields where he still works as an electrician.

12-21-15-1-300x225Combining his knowledge and experience in electrical and automation with his passion for gardening and homesteading, Brett will be bringing some wonderful projects to the DIY world that will help all create a more productive and efficient life.

Many of the technologies that Makers On Acres focus’ on in their projects are open source platforms designed for the DIY maker/inventor. Some of the platforms include the Arduino, Rasberry PI, Orange PI and many others. These systems can be easily customized and programmed to do a multitude of tasks autonomously.  These systems are easily programmed and are adaptable to a large selection of sensors and add on’s (Shields). The development boards have a large number of open forums and coding that is available to help the entry level user hit the ground running with their new projects.

Brett hopes that through his show he will be able to inspire new projects, educate the DIY enthusiast and teach new users so that they can start building their creations and making their own dreams realities.

Crossbow… The Bow Part 3
Highlander “Survival & Tech Preps

crossbow 617r0Ss08rL._SL1181_In the past couple of shows I talked about the long bow, the recurve bow, and the compound bow, and touched on the cross bow, this episode will be all about the crossbow, whether it is a formidable weapon in today’s standards, or is it a toy?

I will talk about the history of the crossbow, the types that existed in the past and modern day, and the uses for modern day crossbows. We will look at the power they produce, and whether or not we should be prepping them. Who in the world still uses them (you will be surprised).

12-14-15 51-XmId2P2L._AC_UL115_What kind of crossbow should you look for and what kind should you stay away from, along with the maintenance and care will be discussed. We will also take a look at the various style of bolts (arrows) used in them, and what you should get. From my preps I’ll talk about what I personally use and what I prep for using them, how I maintain my own, and how I practice.

We will also go over the rules and regulations in various states and the pricing of the bows. I will go over the age group and the ability for those that cannot pull the bow back and a resolution to fix this. I will talk about the modern day advancements, materials and which you should have.

Practice makes perfect, how to shoot, and the learning curve are important to know and will keep you on track not wanting to give up. How about the optics needed and where to find them, locally, and on the internet? We will go over that and the parts of the bow itself. What makes a crossbow a crossbow and not a standard bow? The differences and similarities between the two. All this and more.

Bow & Survival Advantages!
Highlander “Survival & Tech Preps

The Bow & Survival Advantages Archery3This episode will be all about whether or not to use a bow during a survival situation. As many of you know I love archery and believe it is an effective tool to survive or even to just have backyard fun. If shtf does happen then a gun might not be the best option to keep yourself and your family fed. Bullets run out, and scare game off if you are hunting in the same area time after time. A bow is a great alternative to this, they are quiet, and unlike bullets arrows are reusable and can last a log time.

The Bow & Survival AdvantagesI will talk about the evolution of this technology we have thought was primitive but in fact has made leaps and bounds technological wise. We will go over what type you should look for, how to choose what draw length, and what broad-heads/tips you should look for. We will also look at the various materials used in making these bows, both modern and primitive. What’s the difference between modern day crossbows vs old and what roles do these tools play in modern day survival? I will talk about kinetic energy of these tools and what needs to be achieved to take animals within the US.

11-30-2015 Archery1Part of this episode will delve into the care and maintenance of these bows. What are the brands to look for and what are the one’s to stay away from? There are some cheap ones and some expensive ones and some that are in the middle; how to choose? I will go over the skills needed to shoot each type of bow and the importance of stance and consistency to be as accurate as you can. We will also look at the cost to get started and what accessories you may need to help you and recommend a few websites to get you going, as always I will take questions from the chat and live on air over the phone, so enjoy the show!

Paracord and the Endless Uses!
paracordHighlander “Survival & Tech Preps

Today on Tech Preps we will talk about the various para-cord and what we can use it for. This little bit of technology has served us well for many years as a must have in anyone’s kit. There are so many uses paracord that I do not really know where to begin.

I have various forms of this in my kit, my vehicle that I carry with me everywhere. I will go over how it is made, the various types, strengths, and uses. Paracord or “cordage” as it is referred to in the prepper and bush crafting community is one of the best things to have besides a knife and food in the woods. We will talk about why you should have this on you, in your pack, on a knife, in your vehicle and the best kind to buy.

11-23-15 Cool-Paracord-ProjectsThere are a lot of spin offs out there so you can be fooled very easily about the type and quality you might need. I will also talk about some new stuff that is hitting the market called firecord, this is a great thing to have in any bush crafter or bugout bag. The firecord not only has strength of paracord but also has the ability to create tinder within the paracord core itself, so I will discuss this and show photos of this stuff in action.

11-23-15 maxresdefaultI will discuss what I use it for and maybe give you some tips as to what you can use it for and how to store it. I will also give a few tips on how to maintain paracord and it various knots to try to fashion to keep it from slipping on you in load bearing situations. As always we will be taking questions from the chat and taking calls from the audience.

Armor, bug out vehicle!
Highlander “Tech Preps

Armor, bug out vehicle survival-vehicle-21This episode I will discuss bug out vehicles, do you need a fully armored bug out vehicle? Will those zombies be coming after you and you just run right over them? Well we will discuss this, is it just paranoia or does a vehicle of this caliber have merit in certain situations. The Police seem to think so, they use armored personnel carriers all the time to respond to hostile situations.

Armor, bug out vehicles!We will take a look at the price of such a vehicle and the legality of it. What are the pros and the cons of such a vehicle, and what would be good to equip it with? Along with the pros and cons is the costs of and kinds of accessories, armor, radios, computers, and other helpful gadgets that may help you if an event strikes with no recourse but to bug out.

Armor, bug out vehicles!I will help recommend a few products that could be installed as well as what I believe is the best route when choosing a vehicle chassis, and what to look out for. I will talk about the pros of a vehicle being armored such as bullet resistant (not bullet proof). Also the advantages over diesel vs gasoline engine. Also the advantages of heavy armor vs light, and the cons of both. I will talk about the cons of the vehicle such as speed, maneuverability, and weakness’s.

Communications, another important item to consider. What are the advantages of having various communications in a vehicle such as gps, wenches, and various other gadgets.

As always I will be taking questions from the chat and live call in line, so please feel free to visit chat or call in and talk to me live!, we will have a good time and I hope everyone enjoys the show!

Do You Have Your Technology Affairs In Order?
Karen Lynn “Lil’ Suburban Homestead

Technology HAMAs we know it’s not if an emergency happens it’s when… and one aspect that many folks forget about is having their technology affairs in order?

Preppers are preppers because they have the food, the bug out bags, and everything prepared for an unforeseen and unfortunate event…but maybe they don’t have everything prepared. For example many people do not have technology preparations in place including important documents you may need in an emergency.

11-12-15 solar-panel-So now you are in a predicament and well the documents are nowhere to be and don’t automatically assume we will necessary be off grid in an emergency. That is why Karen Lynn is so excited to dig deep into this discussion with Radio Show Host Highlander of Tech Preps…talking about several things you can put into place whether you are facing, a weather emergency, a family emergency, or even an epidemic of some sort.

Where would you begin to get your tech preps in order? Do you know? Are you aware of the technology that is available to you even that may run on batteries or other types of alternative energy for you to use in an emergency?

About Highlander:

Highlander has been working with computers and technology for around eight years and before that was a satellite technician for a broadcast company, and various other technical jobs. He has a degree in business management and above and beyond that is an “Out of the Box” thinker when it comes to problem solving, and troubleshooting with technology. A natural affinity that he has had and really dove into his love with computers in 1989 and it is a hobby that he has enjoyed tinkering with computers and even ham radio that he became interested in and added as a hobby as a teen. He is the “Tech Fix it guy” in his circle of friends but he doesn’t mind it’s just what he does. Karen Lynn say’s but don’t ask him if he’s special because like most brilliant fix it people he just says, “I’m not anybody special…I’m just an average guy that has an affinity for technology…I just have a knack for it.”

Karen Lynn shares that must be why so many of you tune into his show each week “Tech Preps” because Highlander has the info and is happy to share it with all of you! Humble, smart and so excited about technology. Both Highlander and Karen Lynn are passionate about technology and how it came make your life easier now and in the future as part of your preps.

Time Travel with Tech Preps!

Time Travel
Highlander “Tech Preps

Time Travel with Tech PrepsLast week we talked about the “what if”, if we brought technology back to our recent past and our distance past on how people would react.
This episode we will delve more into the time travel aspect, is it possible? Is it a bad idea? Should we do it to learn from our past? Set history straight as it were?

Time Travel with Tech PrepsI will talk about a few theories that have been presented and a few problems with time travel that might prove it impossible or improbable. I will talk about a scientist I listen to a lot called Michio Kaku. He is one of the best minds we have today, and a pleasure to listen to on his time travel theories.

We will talk about the “grandfather” paradox aka the causality effect, how it would be almost impossible to go back and actually change the past. I will talk about the complications trying to change something would have on our future.

We have to consider that this may one day become fact and not just a theory. If it does become fact where would you like to go? What would you like to see? I will ask this question and try to answer it for myself and the audience.

11-3-15 downloadThis episode will be dedicated to the 30th anniversary of Back to the Future, this movie has inspired me to think about time travel and the general risks that come with it. I will go over what this movie got right and what it got wrong as far as paradoxes and technology.

The question we will try to answer is if it would be ethical to go back and change something, or use what we learn or know to benefit us in the future. As always I want to incorporate the audience in the show and get your opinions on what you guys think about this topic, please let me know and enjoy the show!

Blast from the Past in Technology!

Click here to view the original post.

Blast from the Past!
Highlander “Tech Preps

Past maxresdefaultThis Episode we will talk about what I refer to as the Prometheus effect, if we were to bring technology back in time, what would people think? Prometheus, meaning “forethought”)[1] is a Titan in Greek mythology, best known as the deity in Greek mythology who was the creator of mankind and its greatest benefactor, who gifted mankind with fire stolen from Mount Olympus, IE technology to man.

It is said that people believed the technology given to humans was as if it were magic. If we took technology back say 10 years, 20, so on, your cell phone for example or the smart phone back let’s say just to the 80s, it would look as if it we were magic.

PastI will discuss various technologies that we have today that somewhat resemble the past, such as  cassette tapes, cds, dvds, tv’s, all products that have evolved over the past 50+ years. I will put a hypothesis out there about how some people would react to these inventions. If they saw them in the past, would they pay them any attention? Or would they be flabbergasted at the technology and think it is some kind of voodoo. As the old saying goes advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic. So would you jump in your DeLorean and take technology back in time? Say for a cure for a disease, or medical technology, or something that could change the tide of wars.

The same goes if we had a person bring technology from the distant future would we think it is magic or have we gotten to the point where we understand the leaps and bounds of technology and can see evolution’s of our own making? There is a divide of what we create and it differs from the past to present.

11-3-15 downloadI will take questions from the chat about this and will encourage feedback from the audience and input as to what they think about this topic. It has always been on my mind, and even more now with the 30th anniversary of the Back to the Future movie. Famous scientist Michio Kaku said this “If you could meet your grandkids in the year 2100 you would view them as basically Greek gods… that’s where we’re headed.” I figured it would be a good show to honor the movie. Enjoy the show!

EMP, The Big Blackout!

EMP, The Big Blackout!
Highlander “Tech Preps

EMP downloadThis episode I will talk about the technology we should have in case an EMP was to occur. What we should have before and after and how to prep for such an event. We will go over the possible causes of EMP (electromagnetic pulse) and how to prevent it from affecting your gadgets.

I have always heard of this as a terror filled media fueled conspiracy type of life changing event. But we will discover if the threat is real, false or do we simply not know. I will talk about the misconceptions and the confirmations of what makes an EMP a threat. I will give you suggestions on what we should put in place in our own lives to be ready for such an attack, either from nature, or from manmade weapons. We have 2 major events that could cause an EMP, such as a faraday cage, shielding, and proper grounding of equipment. A quote I would like to share from.

10-26-15 AnEMP-AttackBillionaire hedge fund manager Paul Singer is warning investors – and more broadly, lawmakers and leaders – about the potential destructive power of an electromagnetic pulse, or EMP, which could be triggered by solar events or artificially, via blasts in the atmosphere. According to Singer, research shows that no other incident, including a nuclear bomb, has the potential for such wide-scale devastation, coupled with the relative likelihood of occurring. While a nuke would primarily impact on the location of such a city, an EMP could occur globally or across large-scale regions, wreaking havoc on the entire electric grid and devices…

I will talk about if a high tech lifestyle is sustainable or is it good to go low tech and prepare for what might come, but will it? I will go over the likely hood of such events and the ones that have occurred in the past. Enjoy the show!
