Hi guys

I'm a great believer in the KISS philosophy (Keep It Simple Stupid!) so why
are we putting barriers in the way when it comes show notes? ATOM format?
XML? Excuse me - what are you talking about!  If you are trying to attract
new contributors like me, then we need to keep it simple.  Speaking from
experience, it's not obvious how I should go about putting show notes
together and getting them to HPR (unless of course I have missed a very
obvious link on the HPR contribute pages!). I just want to be able to write
my notes in a simple format and be able to upload/attach them to an email
as a doc or txt file.

I have the format/idea/outline for a show, and home-life permitting I
should be able to get it recorded tomorrow. If you think that I have
procrastinated long and hard over what to record as an episode, then that's
nothing compared to trying to work out how to upload show notes with my
episode. :(
