Olly Clark

The UK Tech community has been saddened to hear of the death of Oliver (Olly) Clark, a well known presence at OggCamp, Barcamp and Raspberry Pi meetings. He apparently died in November 2021 as a consequence of COVID-19. His family did not know who to contact in the wider community, so this news only became apparent recently.

Older HPR shows on, phase 2

Now that all shows from number 1 to the latest have been uploaded to the Internet Archive there are other tasks to perform.

  • Shows uploaded by last Community News recording: 431
  • Shows added since last recording: 145

I would use an API if there was one.

I have not published a show in years, despite having a lot of subjects to talk about.

I posted the last one before the FTP option went away. For some reason I have an aversion to fighting with what I see as a complex number of steps necessary to publish a show. Especially as I would never publish a show without complex notes.

And I would enjoy writing a client for the API. Probably in Perl. Since Perl is the best computer programming language ever invented.

High Winds

We didn't have much problem with winds for two reasons. First, when you drive more slowly there is less chance for wind to blow oyu around. Second, our truck is bigger than a pickup. It is a Freightliner Sport Chassis.
