hpr2534 :: Moving to Office 365 (and painting the ceiling)

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.

HPR Podcrawl 2018

Dave, Kevie, and Andrew - hosts of TuxJam - take you via a slightly elongated route to an upcoming event.

The event

Podcrawl Glasgow 2018 Saturday 28 July 2018 from 18:00 starting at The State Bar, Holland Street, G2 4NG

Dave's mistake

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.

Tactical chunder

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.

Contact Us

You can contact all three of us at the same time via tuxjam@otherside.network - let us know you're coming!

Other podcasts?

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.

hpr2527 :: Reviews Vs. Critiques

Lostnbronx contrasts "reviews" with "critiques", which are not the same things.

Hosted by lostnbronx on 2018-04-10 is flagged as Clean and released under a CC-BY-SA license.
Listen in ogg, spx, or mp3 format. Comments (0)

Lostnbronx takes a quick look at what it is that constitutes "reviews" of stories (be they books, films, TV shows, audio dramas, whatever) as opposed to "critiques" of them.

How do these two things differ, and what are their purposes? Is one more important than the other? Why does it even matter?


hpr2526 :: Gnu Awk - Part 10

More about arrays in Gnu Awk


Hosted by Dave Morriss on 2018-04-09 is flagged as Explicit and released under a CC-BY-SA license.

Gnu Awk - Part 10

Introduction

This is the tenth episode of the "Learning Awk" series which is being produced by b-yeezi and myself.

In this episode I want to talk more about the use of arrays in GNU Awk and then I want to examine some real-world examples of the use of awk.

Long notes

The notes for rest of this episode are available here.
