LISTen: An LISNews.org Podcast -- Episode #59
Submitted by StephenK on February 8, 2009 - 11:52pm
Let's try out a different approach to show posts this week. Timings are approximate. Related links are interleaved. Due to length this is broken so as to not take up the entire main page which requires one to click "read more". Readers and listeners seeing this via RSS or a FeedBurner e-mail subscription are encouraged to visit LISNews itself to get the show break-down as well as the related links. 00:00 LISNews Netcast Network tag 00:20 Introduction, Zeitgeist, Congratulations to Amber MacArthur Retweet of news by Leo Laporte from Amber MacArthur News from Amber MacArthur 02:19 Public Service Announcement from the IRS 02:49 Linux Round Up Reference remark relative to the economy Story from The Register on Windows 7 types going to market Fedora 11 Alpha release announcement Release announcement for PapugLinux 09.1 Home page for MilaX Announcement on DistroWatch about KNOPPIX 6.0 CD Announcement of TinyMe 2009 Alpha 1 "Acorn" Home page for Gwibber 07:43 Public Service Announcement from the National Diabetes Education Program in the United States 08:43 Politics Round Up Direct link to Excel spreadsheet outlining compromise National Review Online's attempt to enumerate cuts made in the compromise New York Times story on the compromise that also tentatively identifies the dissident Republicans An example blog post relative to the patriotism issue Story in the Las Vegas Review-Journal about the possible disqualification of Nevada from stimulus funds for education 14:31 Replay of President Barack Obama's Weekly Address Released on February 7th 18:26 Public Service Announcement from FirstGov.gov 18:41 Show close As to the addressing mentioned in the show close, picture postcards should be sent bearing addresses in this form:
STEPHEN MICHAEL KELLAT GENERAL DELIVERY HENDERSON, NV 89015-9999Due to the peculiarities of the General Delivery service known elsewhere as poste restante, accuracy in addressing is hyper-critical. In due time we'll be able to afford a P.O. Box and this won't be as complicated. Until then, mail cannot be addressed to the show but to its presenter as a result of postal rules.
