Updated recommendation! Back in #1877 I said that you could go with this app because it has these nice functions, or with that app because it has these other things. Well, there's no longer any need for trade-offs. Just go to f-droid, install
Audio Recorder and you're good to go!
I installed it in two minutes, recorded a two-minute episode on how great it seems to be, and then I recorded another three episodes and I can confirm that it's pretty great. You've got the record/pause control available on the lock screen, it can save in FLAC, you can define the naming pattern it should use for the files, and you can tell it where to store its files.
Some apps just insist on saving everything in internal storage, and that can run out pretty quick. Meanwhile I've got 30 GB left on my SD card that I'm struggling to make apps make use of.
And finally, it also has a rename function (unlike my previous recommendation uRecord!), so you can conveniently, right in the app without finding the files through some other means, change the file name to reflect what it was that you were recording, so that you're not in the situation where one month later you're looking at a dozen files with just dates and times and need to listen to all of them to figure out which one it is you want.
It even has an automatic skip silence function, but that's pretty useless for the places I record in. :-D
When I said "cool waveform" I meant that it's displaying the recorded waveform on the screen as it records. Not that useful, but it's just part of the overall really nice polish of the app.
Lostnbronx takes a breezy look at narrative points-of-view, as well as temporal tenses in storytelling. What are they, how do they differ, and why might one be better than another in a particular situation?
A couple of weeks ago we moved to a new house and I had some time on my hands to talk to you guys while painting the ceiling. Moving was very much on the forefront of my mind since I also recently moved my company's Email platform to Office 365. As a cross platform slider with a foot in each major operating system I decided to give you my first impressions of the new platform (and upset the GNU-purists) with my review.
A minor review of the 2017 event leaves a bitter taste in the mouth of the Big Jessie.
Who is the event for?
Kevie lists various groups of people who might be interested in going. Dave adds a couple more. So does Andrew. The upshot is: anyone human. Oh, and guide dogs. But probably not children after 19:00 (it's a Scottish pubs/licensing thing).
Audio from the event
Andrew suggests that we may be able to record or even stream audio from the Podcrawl. Dave apparently is an expert in such things, and tries to impress the others with science. Kevie suggests we wait towards the end of the event when it's quieter.
Dave is reminded - for a second time - about his mishap. Andrew decides to go into nauseating (pardon the pun) detail.
How will you find us?
Some of us will be wearing Podcrawl t-shirts, although the company that originally produced the t-shirts sadly has gone out of business.
Andrew keeps Ken Fallon happy by suggesting that listeners record a response to this show with any suggestions about recording at live events.
Kevie tells us where the event will be (see the top of the notes)
We'll be posting through the event on Twitter/GNUsocial/Diaspora with the hashtag #PodcrawlGlasgow. Use any one of these to find out where we'll be at any time.
Non-techy people are welcome. Cigars will be provided.
If you're in a band, come along as well... we have plenty of opportunity for promotion of your music!
Andrew reminds us that this is the fifth Podcrawl in Glasgow.
Kevie says that if you're coming into Glasgow before 18:00, we'd love to meet up with you beforehand. We believe that all three of us (plus Dave's good lady) will be there from early/mid afternoon.
You can contact all three of us at the same time via firstname.lastname@example.org - let us know you're coming!
Dave asks Andrew about a podcast featuring three guys talking about Creative Commons and Linux: TuxJam
Dave asks Kevie about a short-form music podcast featuring a couple of pieces of music from a single artist: CCJam
Andrew asks Dave about a husband and wife podcast with a live show that goes out every Friday night from South Yorkshire in England: The Bugcast - it's award-winning, has a live chatroom, and is 10-years old!
Thanks for listening!
Thanks to Torriden for allowing us to play their track Drinking Away. We hope to see you at Podcrawl in July for a beer or malt (or two)!
Lostnbronx talks about plot and story, as well as characters and backgrounds, in storytelling of all types. These things are closely tied together, and a problem with one can easily be a problem with all.
On our refrigerator we have a note card that says "If you don't take care of your body, where will you live?" This is a very pertinent question that can open up a discussion of how to achieve a better level of health and age gracefully. This show will kick off a series that will explore various topics in how to get good medical information and improve your health.
