Technology journalist Andy Ihnatko (of the Chicago Sun-Times, TWIT, and
Almanac) joins The Bad Cop and DarrylW4 for a discussion about recovering
electronic devices after getting wet. Andy tested several technique
in his article "Salvage Techniques for Wet Electronics"
including use of Fresh Step Crystals and the specialize The Dry &
Store device. In that discussion we mentioned comments on
Google+ by Adorfer about recovering his gear dunked while "...walking in high
waders inside a former factory for aggricultural fertilizers in the
basement of the sulfur storage...."
We started with news that Cachesense for Android now supports Munzees, then followed up with a call from Superted (also featured on "CAM Ep. 162: Superted"). Listener Tom suggested through Google+ the use of a device like the Portable Picture & Data Backup Hard Drive while quadsinthemudd (soon to be featured on Cache-A-Maniacs Connections) offered some thoughts including use of Contour Maps for Garmin GPS (also note that The Bad Cop misspoke while reading his comments - the Oregon 300 supports 2,000 geocaches, not 200).
The live video session from this Google+ Hangout On Air can be found on YouTube.
