The HPR Static Site

As mentioned in the last Community News episode, the HPR database and website was moved to a new server, and the static site generator written by Rho`n was used to generated the non-interactive part of the website.

Since then, there has been a process of adapting the software to the new configuration. Unfortunately Rho`n has not been available during this process, but we are gradually learning our way around his excellent software and making changes to suit our needs.

If you spot any problems or have ideas for new features, please raise issues on the Gitea repository at:

Reserve Queue

A policy change is required in the use of the reserve queue. When there are unfilled slots between 5 and 7 days in the future, episodes in this queue will be used to fill them.

This extra time is required because of the time it can take to process a show and load it to the Internet Archive.

Bram Moolenaar, author of Vim dies

There was an announcement from Bram's family today (2023-08-05) that he died on August 3rd 2023 from a medical problem that worsened recently.
