Hi 0x0,

Please see The GNU World Order, July 8, 2011: Episode 6x14 ( as to why that unfortunately won't be happening as much as we all would like.

Fortunately there is an easy way to resolve the issue of too many podcasts on a particular topic and that is to contribute to HPR and to get more people to contribute to HPR. If you click on the link Contribute, you can find a list of the many ways you yourself can help. If you don't want to record a show your self, you can send us ideas on what you do want to hear about. Had you put that in your comments we might have been able to convince klaatu to do a show about it.

I'm a little surprised...

...the 0x0 comment got approved. Basic civility nourishes and supports any community, folks.

The views expressed are not necessarily those of hpr ...

Hi Brother Mouse,

We are just the administrators of the site not the censors of it. We don't apply any restrictions on the show content nor should we on the comments.

Needless to say 0x0's comments do not necessaries those of hpr ... That said, it gave me greater pleasure pressing approve on your comments than that of 0x0.
