  • hpr4112 (2024-05-07) "JSON and VENDORS and AUTH ohh my!" by operat0r.
    Summary: "I talk and rant about JSON and Vendors"
    From: Ken Fallon on 2024-05-31: "The answer is always jq"

    JQ gives you error reporting with the line and error that occurs.

    Summary: "Building community does not require marketing and too much marketing can sometimes destroy community"
    From: Ken Fallon on 2024-05-31: "The link appears invalid"

    Just had some time to look at the Discord link but it doesn't appear to be working

  • hpr4118 (2024-05-15) "Toil versus Livelihood" by dnt.
    Summary: "A contribution to the discussions about AI as a threat to our livelihoods"
    • Comment 7: dodddummy on 2024-06-01: "I agree but am concerned about the transition"

      I agree that the toil isn't the point and a lot of people aren't doing what they want to do.

      My concern is how we'll make the transition from what we have to the toilless future.

      Seems not at all clear to me we'll make that transition without 'insert favorite post apocalyptic movie title'.

  • hpr4126 (2024-05-27) "Podcasting for Newbies" by Moss Bliss.
    Summary: "All you need to become a podcaster"
    • Comment 1: Henrik Hemrin on 2024-06-04: "Equipment, experience, encouragement and radio."

      Thanks Moss for sharing your experience, equipment details and encouragement to anyone who wants to become a podcaster. Nice also to learn about your radio background.

Developing new static feeds

  • RSS feeds are currently being created in real time on The plan has always been to make all feeds static, generated by the site-generator script in the hpr_generator repository.

  • Changing RSS feeds is a dangerous process in that feed readers, podcatchers and so on can be triggered by what appear like insignificant changes, making them download files that have already been downloaded, even though they are the not different.

  • Work is ongoing to produce new (static) feeds, but they will need extensive testing before they can be released to the world at large.

  • To do this we will need testers, so it would be appreciated if we could call upon volunteers to assist with this process.
