[Hpr] Various Creative Commons Works

Thanks for keeping us on the beam and focused on keeping HPR alive and well.  I have already done my show for 2013.  I have a second one in the queue, and a couple in the works.  One of those will be destined for the "Break Glass" list, but you still may be hearing from me a couple of additional times this year.

Unless we want to hear from the same small group of people until they run out of gas, let's find some of the interesting people who are out there doing great stuff, and help them record shows on their projects, hobbies, ideas and so on.

My shows are on a trend toward math and math software topics right now.  People might want a break from that stuff.  Why not find a show on the challenges of teaching a left-handed person to do knitting?  :-)   Once we get the southpaws knitting and doing needlework, we can put them to work splicing fiber to get us decent bandwidth like the BARN project.

We need to keep making shows, and it would be great to hear from a variety of hosts and topics.

That's my piece.

The positions is open you only requirement is that StankDwag needs to
feel he can trust you with the key. It has been my goal to walk away
from this job asap and there a lot of people working to make the
automation necessary to achieve that goal. Everyone and anyone
is free to take over at any time.

Well I do, because this network will cease to exist if shows do not
continue to come in. Right now, New or Older hosts looking at the
Calendar might not contribute because it looks like we are swimming in
shows. We are not. We still need 166 shows to fill to the end of the

The logical thing to do would be to remove the files from the Calendar
page. I have just now done this for all the shows. The page now focuses
on hosts only. 


The only reason that the files were ever shown is to allow the hosts to
know that they have been processed. To that end I put the file list on
the ftp server in a file called queue.txt. That way the hosts get to
know where the shows are.

Is that sufficient or should we continue to shoot ourselves in the
foot by listing all the shows ?
