Hello again, blog readers.
I would like to let all of you that were subscribed to our email lists know that we have moved from google groups over to mailman, a popular email list manager, otherwise known as a mailman server.
I'm sure that many of you are subscribed to lists run by mailman, or a mailman server, what ever you'd like to call it.
A popular list run by mailman is
The Victor Reader stream users list
So, what does this mean for you, the user?
It just means that we're moving. In fact, all of you that were on the google groups lists have been migrated already.
To save space on our server, we decided to combine both of the lists. To clarify, these are the techy-tidbits-announce and the techy-tidbits-friends lists, into one big list, techy-tidbits-friends.
If you haven't already subscribed to the google groups lists, it's not too late to subscribe to the list run by mailman.

We're still Here, but Busy!

Greetings everyone!
It seems like it has been ages since I have even thought about posting to the blog. However, I decided that it's only fair to keep it going.
So, it's time for an update.
First, I have been asked by a few people, "What happened to the podcast?"
Well, after taping epasode 19, it occured to me that it was time to take a break, do to school, and also, family obligations. I promised myself that I wouldn't let it slide.
However, it finally occured to me that it was time to put the Techy Tidbits Podcast to rest. And, sorry to announce, the techy tidbits podcast will cece to exist in its present form.
I would like to hear everyones feedback on this, and if it indicates that I should keep it going, I will certainly consider the possibility. However, I'd like to take the time to say, it won't be every week.
Please send all comments on this topic to
Radio Station
Next, I'd like to announce that since January, techy tidbits has had a radio station. It opperates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with mostly automated content.
However, here's the good news for all you podcast lovers out there.
Every Saturday night, I do a show called Saturday Night Out West, and we play music, chatter abit, pick on people, and just have a blast!
The show starts at 7:00 P.M central.
To find the radio station,

Also, I am looking for broadcasters. If you think that you have the knoledge of broadcasting, and a good music collection, feel free to send me an email, as I'd love to have you as a broadcaster! Send the email to and I'll see what I can do to get you on the Air!
Well, folks, that is about it for the update.
Stay tuned, as I hope to blog more, and get back into the blogging mood!

Let it be, techy tidbits, the one and only place whare you can take a whole new technology ride!

Hey Everyone!
Ok, so Techy Tidbits first started in June of 2010, and since then, it has evolved, and it is what it is today, because of you, the royal visitor.
I, Tyler Juranek, am so verry glad that we have been able to make many accomplishments over these few months, including, being able to get the podcast up into the itunes store, as well as our recent makeover.
I have many people to thank, for all there generous help and encouragement. One person that was a huge help to me, and continues to be, is of course,
The one and only Darrell Shandrow!
Darrell has helped me in many ways, many that I can't describe. He has been not only a great friend, and a great supporter of techy tidbits, but also, a great encouragement to me in school, and in my daily life.
Before I met Darrell, I had advocacy skills. But folks, after I met Darrell, my advocacy skills increased, because of all the things he has done, so that we, as blind people, may have equal access to the things that we now know and love, and that we call technology!
I would just like to publically thank Darrell. I have so many things to thank him for, so many, I can't list them all.
Finally, I would like to thank each and every one of you that reads this blog.
Now, now, enough!
I must tell you what you folks can do to help techy tidbits even more!
A popular site for the blind, known as
Blind Bargains
is accepting nominations for the fourth anual Blind Bargains access awards!
These nominations include the best blog of 2010, the best podcast of 2010, Etc, Etc.
