    HPR3870: Texas

    HPR3870: Texas

    Our stay in Presidio was a nice one, and we enjoyed the companionship
    at the RV park. This gave us access to the Big Bend Ranch State Park,
    and we had a few good outings there. But we wanted to visit the Big Bend
    National Park, which was not as reachable as we would like, so we booked
    a few days in Alpine, Texas. This turned out to be fortuitous for an
    important repair. And after seeing the National Park it was time to head
    back to Michigan. We had a long but very nice trip, but as always at the
    end of a trip we look forward to being back in our home and sleeping in
    our bed.


    HPR3869: 5 minute war game

    HPR3869: 5 minute war game

    Grab some toy soldiers (Games Workshop, BattleTech, Lego, whatever), a handful of six-sided dice, and clear off a 20x20 cm space on your desk.

    Arrange the soldiers within the play area. Place 3d6 by each soldier.

    On its turn, a soldier may move or attack. Never both.

    To attack, remove 1d6 from a soldier's dice pool and roll it. Ranged attacks hit on 4 or greater. Melee attacks hit on 3 or greater.

    When a soldier takes damage, remove 1 die from its dice pool.

    When a soldier's dice pool is reduced by damage to 0 or less, tip it on its side to signify that it is dead.

    The last soldier or soldiers left standing when there are no dice in the play area wins.

    During 2015, Lourenco opened 23 credit cards using the identities of
    three victims he had befriended, two of whom were senior citizens.
    Lourenco’s victims did not know he was using their identities to obtain
    the credit cards, nor did they authorize Lourenco to obtain the credit
    cards. Lourenco used the 23 credit cards to make more than $423,000 in
    unauthorized purchases. He also used the debit card for a joint bank
    account belonging to two of the victims to make an additional $57,000 in
    unauthorized charges. Lourenco admitted that he knew at least one of his
    victims was a vulnerable victim when he used the victim’s identity to
    commit his crime.

This is real Open Source

With a different host every day, you get people's once every few month bit of tech awesomeness every day, not oh no we have to do a show, let's throw something together. Great job on this show community. Way to go open source podcasting.

Mixed bag, at best

Some of it is moderately interesting from time to time. But after just listening to a guy (probably drunkenly,) ramble about installing an SSD and 16 gigs of RAM into a decade old MacBook for 18 minutes straight, I can't recommend. (Real hacker stuff, that...) There's plenty of better podcasts that are more consistent and technology-focused out there.

Hit or Miss, but worth subscribing to

This is a community based radio show, so anyone can make their own podcast for HPR. This results in variable quality, with shows that cover a topic well, to shows that are uninformative or banal, like "What's in my bag today". Since the topics covered are so broad, some of them will not be relevant to you. I personally don't care much for the libre office podcasts, but a libre office user would find them helpful. Still, I enjoyed and learned from many of the shows featured here.
