Episode 039 — Impey Barbicane's Moon Gun and Setting Up a New Computer

Gabe and Jeff, both recovering from nuking their operating systems in acts of wanton Xcode installation, go into detail about how to get your gear back up and running.

Techniques for backing up your data and recovering it with all settings in tact can be a tall order and they found it was best discussed while drinking a Moon Gun. A mellow amber ale, Moon Gun is a collaboration between Maryland's DuClaw Brewing Company and Florida's Cigar City Brewing Company.
