Gerald did a great job describing the Maestro and other products.  Tim was in the Chat Room answering questions.  Excellent Show guys.  Thanks.

It was enjoyable.  Sometime, I'd like to hear Gerald speak more on his life as a venture capitalist.

I was able to watch it after pausing it for an hour or so (my 8 year-old son was having bouts of gastric and digestive disruptions all night) Nice interview.  I was glad that he mentioned SoftEther and other VPN methods of WAN access as a work around until 2.0 with WAN is released.

It really was pretty simple to configure my ASUS router for VPN once I learned how to set my ATT UVerse modem/router into passthrough mode.  And SoftEther is also pretty simple if one will take a little time to read the manual or seek help from others, although it requires leaving a computer turned on.  (But if you want remote rotator control, or other peripherals to work, you will need it running anyway for the moment.

@Howard...I caught his reference to "one of our customers bragging that he was running around the Mediterranean remoting to a big tower  in San Diego."  <grin>   He could have referenced many others who are also having fun with simple VPN connections.

@Ken

It was fun working you from the banks of the Bosphoros in Istanbul Turkey (#27) ...

But it looks like adding more remoted from countries is getting much more difficult as I have done most of the obvious easy ones.  I am 12 Miles from Mexico so that could be #28 but Tijuana is really not exactly high on my want to visit list with equipment worth more than $10.  .

Perhaps this September when we are hiking the Dolomite's I can convince the XYL to detour to San Marino or the Vatican?

I had super-fast internet in Hanoi this Summer. 
I had super-fast internet on the Vietnam/China border (in the mountains)
I had super-fast internet in Saigon
I had super-fast internet in Cambodia
I had super-fast internet in Bangkok, and two remote Thai islands
I had super-fast internet in Kuala Lumpur
I had super-fast internet in SIngapore
I had super-fast internet in Tokyo
I had internet at 38,000 feet over the Pacific

I believe my wife used FaceTime at every location to talk (view) with stateside family.

They all gave her 59 reports

We are happy and proud and available for interviews and autographs

Our world is connected, with or without ham radio

@DAN and WALT

I had really slow Internet at Dayton Hamvention
but then Dayton is the 3rd world

In 2012 when I remoted from Viet Nam it  was very slow but obviously it got much faster this year.

I'm just kidding you Howard ... and super-fast is a relative term.

I think it's great Howard !   Remoting is as much a part of ham radio today as SSB was when it first appeared. Sure it's internet based, but so what. So are DX Clusters and QRZ and a myriad of other tools that are deemed acceptable today. Carry on sir, you are breaking new ground. And... it's mildly entertaining.   ;-)
