My attempt to get started, finally, with HPR, including a rambling introduction and, more usefully, a review of the OpenBook DO laptop from natively Linux laptop vendor "Ohava Computers".

This is awesome. You had me loling all the way to work. The drivers next to me at the stop lights were quite concerned.

I'm not finished with the episode yet, but I just had to post a comment while I'm near a computer today.

Please keep this up. A monthly show like this would be great.

btw; I have about a half a dozen HPR stickers left. I couldn't live with myself if you didn't get one of them after this episode. Please shoot me an email so I can send one out to you.

Great Show

Thanks for taking the time and effort.

You have a good sense of humor, and your product review was helpful.

I look forward to your next production.

Consumer oriented content is always interesting; trying to dissect why companies do the things they do, and why consumers do the things they do.

I will probably publish a show on a similar topic.

Thanks very much for the feedback!

I honestly had no idea how this would be received, so it's good to know somebody likes it.

And I'll something to say about "consumers" in the next episode...

Crap, sorry I missed your question a year ago...

Sorry, Jared - I'll actually address your question in the over-a-year-overdue Episode 01, which I HOPE will actually finally get recorded and out very soon now.
