Reshaping HPR

There has been a lot of activity on the mail list this month about changes to the scheduling rules and about the upload formats.

Please start by (re)listening to 0560 - Old soldiers | 2010-08-02

As we didn't have shows to fill the feed, we introduced other Non-HPR exclusive content to fill the gaps.
As contributions increased this resulted in a long delay in getting the HPR exclusive content out.
The rest can be read via manually created mail archive

There is also a discussion about changing the upload to FLAC only

Dev News

The cpanel website is giving problems and Josh is working to get them fixed.

mordancy pointed out that we didn't have a full feed for the ogg and spx. So after thinking about it for too long these have also been added.

We made some clean up to the website so please have a look around and report anything out of the ordinary.

Epicanis has been working on a upload form which can be found

The gitorious page can be found

Another great monthly roundup show.

I enjoy these so much, wehether I'm on them or not. I did really want to be on this one, but a flu kept me in bed all that day. I'm really missing being on these.

Fiftyonefifty kicked himself a whole bunch, and I don't think he deserved most of his self inflicted punishment. However I owe him one kick: He incorrectly attributed the me with the idea for the New Year's Show. It was in fact Ken Fallon's idea (and it was a great idea), and it was the HPR community, all together, that pulled it off. From setting up the servers, to providing the audio content, the HPR community did it all. We pulled together and produced an event so good that I don't even have enough words to describe what happened here. All I did was volunteer to record it. I would be a fraud if I took any more credit for it than that.

I am forever thankful to the people of this community for letting me be a part of it.
