This is a thing of beauty

I haven't listened to the episode, but I must say the inclusion of HTML in the feeds makes these Community News entries *much* easier to read. They used to show up as a smashed-together mass of text in my feed-reader.

Spiffy work!

Series page

I just listened to this episode, and noticed that I told Ken that the Series page ( was static. It's not, it's a dynamic bit of PHP like it always was. I just improved the database query and changed the layout.

I was confusing it with the page about missing summaries and tags ( which is static and is regenerated with a Perl script and a template whenever there are updates to these items.

Probably nobody noticed, but I like to be accurate if I can :-)

World oat domination

Dave, we could start a pinhead/steelcut oat racket. I'll ship them from the US, and you sell them in the UK. I'm guessing their rarity in the UK is because you had been importing them from Europe? The pinhead oat industry, an unforeseen casualty of Brexit?

Comment #4 posted on 2016-08-06 22:03:52 by Dave Morriss

Made in Scotland

Alpha32: nice idea but Pinhead Oatmeal is produced in Scotland by Hamlyns of Banff, Aberdeenshire (see my picture at, and others too no doubt. I suspect that not much goes south of the border :-)

As to Brexit, in my nightmares I see us heading back to the days of my childhood where garlic was evil foreign substance and olive oil was for putting on burns and was kept in the medicine cabinet.
