Very nice show!

Thanks Yannick, I really enjoyed listening to this. Very well done.

It was also great to hear Jeroen on the Community News again. For the record the HPR "muggers" at OggCamp 2018 that suggested he join us were JWP and myself ;-)

I caught something a bit like flu just after Christmas - but it can't have been flu because I had my flu shot. Anyway, the notFlu, or its aftermath, is still hanging on three weeks later.

Listening through the back catalog

I'm one of the folks listening through the HPR back catalog (in descending order). Older episodes are often still relevant, and those that are a little "dated" are still fascinating from a historical perspective.

Like Ken mentioned, this is also a fantastic way to flesh out the tags and summaries on older episodes. It only takes a few extra minutes per show!
