I will make a point of having better shownotes... I was on the "audio is better than no audio"... The show would have been a month out, if ever, if i prepared or researched... I apologize for the inconvenience to those who need them.

You did that unscripted ?

Hi Brian,

You hit me with my own catch phrase - touche

I did not think for one second that you could do such a detailed show without referring to some form of a document digital or physical.

Great show - keep them up. We'll happily keep notes if needed.

There's also OGGBot in IRC that can do lookups. From it's help: hpr ep[isode] hpr ti[tle] [-i] hpr ho[st] [-i] hpr la[test] hpr sl[ot]

So to find shows about raspberry topics: OGGBot: hpr ti -i raspberry

Which yields a channel message: Found 8 matches, PMing you the first 6 (try refining your search)

And a PM containing: Episode 1721: Cross-compilers Part 2 by Mike Ray ( ) ( ) Episode 1712: What's in my Crate by Mike Ray ( ) ( ) Episode 1706: Cross-compilers part 1 by Mike Ray ( ) ( ) Episode 1649: Raspberry Pi Accessibility Breakthrough by Mike Ray ( ) ( ) Episode 1629: Banana Pi - First Impressions by Mike Ray ( ) ( ) Episode 1569: Many-to-many data relationship howto by Mike Ray ( ) ( )

Two things to note: 1. I need to make it not include the host name or email when searching titles; and 2. I need to do an episode on OGGBot :/
