I do remember TUCOWS, and asa it happens they are still around, but they changed businesses from being a software repository to being an Internet Services Company. I use their Hover subsidiary as my Domain Name Registrar.

My objective has been to simply tell the things that happened, including the things where we made a mistake, i.e. warts and all. That way it might be of use to others.
This was a good show and Yosef's anwers how he reflected openly his shortcomings, but than again, beeing aware of it is the key to change.
The one thing I disagree, co2. This is making this earth nothing more but more green, which is brilliant. There is 0,038% CO2 in the air. Not even 1 %.
co2 is one of the heaviest gas, therefore it is on the ground. A greenhouse caries the glass roof to keep the heat. Just as a side note, to think about.
And surely does the climate change, why not?
I will listen to it again as it was overall interesting.
Previously on HPR!
I love the intro, the voice just a touch lower and I would have thought I watch an USA TV series.
Brilliant, small things make a difference.
It is really a good thing that you maintain a diary, but on the other hand I got the impression that some hard feelings came up on revisiting that time :) .
Here in Switzerland the complete valve is replaced, when the tire is replaced. Just as a side note.
As always I enjoyed your show.
I run a similar pihole setup, and had never thought of adding an IP lease for the pihole itself. What a neat way to keep your addressing in one place!
Thanks, I enjoyed your episode and look forward to your next contribution!
Since this recording, the developer of Open Radio has released an update fixing the issue with Android Auto, so now that is the app to use, for me.
I was really happy to listen to this show. This is a kind of game I need to explore more.
I enjoyed this like Trey. I have note-taking down at work but realized (again) with this episode, like Trey that notes&planning for my personal life is lacking. I like the idea of using a planner for both the planning and note-taking, and may try that.
I love the way people like you all stay so organized.
I have struggled with organization all my life. I have tried everything from cheap planners to Franklin (expensive), with little success. I eventually converted my Franklin planner to keep flight notes and checklists from my general aviation days.
The best I can do now is using Google Calendar, Google Keep (Please keep the flames to a minimum), and good old steno pads for note taking (From which I transcribe the important bits later).
Thank you for sharing so much excellent advice. You both ROCK!!
You're welcome dnt. I'm glad you found this episode interesting. That youtube channel goes much deeper in the details and there's a cool video where she's playing back voice samples from the past.
Several laugh out loud moments with some guy on the internet here. The one I would clip and attach to the fridge is "See, in open source, we provide you with tools that, that if you do not specifically say, do not download the entire internet, you will then download
the entire internet." (thanks for setting up that automatic transcription, janitors!)
Thanks for sharing this awesome show. Always good to see how different people approach similar tasks.
A long time ago (As a young adult) I studied Taekwondo (TKD) for many years, eventually earning my brown belt. It taught me discipline and forced me to develop a level of physical precision I had been lacking.
Sadly, life events intervened, and I discontinued my training. A couple decades later, I tried Isshinryu karate, but I struggled to "unlearn" stances and techniques which were still ingrained in my muscle memory.
For fun, I tries to work through some of the TKD poomsae (Forms or the equivalent of Kata), and I remembered several of them! Time to get these old bones moving again.
Thank you, again for sharing.
Not only did I enjoy your episode, but I think the concept behind it is worth exploring. We have HPR hosts across the globe, and surely each of us lives near something worth an episode.
This was amazing and completely unknown to me! Also thanks for sharing that youtube channel. Thanks!
Looking forward to it! In the interim, I shall procure a grandfather clock.
I look forward to including responses to some of the points you made, into future episodes.
Taxation can compel efforts to satisfy state orders by acceding to employment, but the extent to which a private citizen can refuse legal tender, is a measure of their freedom.
A lot of trigger words in there of course.
To avoid collapsing back into money talk for a while though, I aim to report on some accessible tools.
Thanks for the episode! It feels like SSH escape sequence are secret commands, and I feel cooler for knowing about them.
It was a pleasant surprise to her 5150 again. He was a good friend even though I only saw him at conferences. I miss him. And did he say he had invited Tracy Holz to join the Audio Book Club? Tracy is a good guy too.
I'm sorry to hear of Michael KV4YD's passing. Everyone in the amateur radio community mourns his passing. It's never nice to hear of new silent keys. Thank you for looking after the administration of his records.

I'm sorry for your loss.
Also, interesting to learn about silent key. I wasn't aware of that before.
That is a good advice. Lilting, a voice that raises and falls, is often perceived more feminine than a steady one that doesn't change pitch that much. Another slightly related term is uptalk, where pitch raises slightly towards the end of sentence, making a statement sound more like a question. Uptalk is often perceived feminine, although it's not exclusively feminine trait.
Some years ago I met someone who had been smoothing the staccato out from their voice. I noticed how some people yank their emphasis around, while others map layers of lilting meaning; almost musical but without singing.
Also I noticed how speaking a different language presented the opportunity to shake out some vocal habits.
I used to play civilization a lot and it's still a very awesome game. In my very first game, things went horribly wrong and when I finally got around having chariots, my neighbour just demolished them with their tanks. I clearly had been focusing on wrong things on that time.
I'm thinking that we should get our daughter to give it a try too and experience that "one more turn" behaviour.
I loved listening you explaining about painting toy soldiers. I wanted to add, that if time needed to paint a 28mm figurine is too long, one can always try switching to a different scale. I especially enjoyed 10mm ancients, because they're faster to paint and look quite nice from the arms length.
had a great laugh at Ken's description of the proper environment in which to enjoy one of spoons' shows.
Hi Klaatu. Great show and very thought provoking.
You missed one type of friendship that applies to me and, I dare say, many others.
I grew up and went to school in London and became one of a group of 7 "mates". We never used the term "friends" in case we were deemed "soft" - crazy I know. Over the years we have all moved away from each other, in one case to the other side of the world, so we often only meet one another once or twice a year, sometimes not even that, and don't even converse by phone or messaging much in between. Despite that we all know that we can totally rely on one another should the need arise, and when we do meet the intervening months or years simply have no relevance.
Apart from my immediate family, of course, these people are closer to me than anybody else but the need to be in constant contact just doesn't exist. It's the polar opposite of people who are constantly on Facebook communicating with "friends" they've never met, and really know nothing about with any certainty.
Thanks for sharing this! I did not know about it. I have long hoped to visit Skara Brae someday, so here's another potential stop for me. I would enjoy hearing more of this.
