Original Release Date
    StankDawg, et al.

This episode was a bonus episode that I created just to work out the timing between seasons. We had completed the last season 3 at episode 156 (52 episodes * 3 years) but the first episode of season 4 (#157) was planned as a live event at hope NEXT week so I had a week gap with no show and I didn't want to ruin the live event, so I created this "half episode" to fill the slot this week.. This rare episode was streamed but was not on our archive. There may be a few copies floating around here or there, but this is the first official release of this episode on this site.

Released on 2008-01-18 under a CC-BY-NC-SA license.

RDBMS - Relational Database Management System

Relational Model: when there are relationships between items of data such as products, customers and orders

A database contains two-dimensional tables which are similar in concept to spreadsheets. Each table contains columns and rows like a spreadsheet, but these are called fields and records in database terminology

Data is stored in tables but is broken down into the most efficient form such that there is no duplication. This process is called normalisation.

Fields have data types associated with them, such as numeric fields for storing numbers or text fields for storing text.

Tables have keys to simplify searching. Primary keys are used to make records in a table unique.

hpr0001 :: Introduction to HPR

Released on 2007-12-31 under a CC-BY-NC-SA license.

In this first ever show on Hacker Public Radio, StankDawg and Enigma introduce HPR.

The story of Hacker Public Radio begins where Radio FreeK America leaves off. StankDawg was a busy with Binary Revolution Radio and so the idea lay dormant for some time. Then droops, another podcaster (Infonomicon) who was inspired by RFA got together with dosman to start TWaTech Today with a Techie, a pun on Twit. About a year in Enigma took over operations from portrello.

Continuing on from Today with a Techie, HPR will air anything that is Of interest to hackers. Think, hacking, phone preaking, politics, survival, caffeine, linux, movie reviews, game reviews, etc. There is no restriction on the length but the shows will have the intro and outro added, which was kindly donated by slick0. Additionally there is the option to have miniseries where the hosts can have running topics to cover an issue in more detail. A mini series can also be open to so that multiple people can contribute to one topic.

Above all HPR is a Community Network.
