HEH 17: Dang It the Cat Threw up… Hold On

For some reason throw-up is a common thread to kick this one off. Dan’s cat throws up, and Dave and Dan take a trip which involves a (rather humorous) throw-up story as well involving an airplane barf bag. We also chat about web infrastructure in other parts of the world, and how much we hate (HATE!) mobile ads.

Dan and Dave traveled to Africa.
Dave and Andrea get sick. Dave washes his pants.

Sister institution travel

  • Dave traveled to Africa to visit a web team there 4 years ago.

  • The scrolly-sucky ad that you need to scroll out of the way.
