We started as Today with a Techie 8 years, 6 months, 15 days ago. Our shows are produced by listeners like you and can be on any topic that "are of interest to hackers". If you listen to HPR then please consider contributing one show a year. If you record your show now it could be released in 9 days.
The "Heartbleed" vulnerability in OpenSSL (CVE-2014-0160) is a bounds checking error in the heartbeat implementation that could return up to 64K of private data to the client. This can lead to server certificate private keys, session cookies, clear text passwords, or other sensitive data being leaked from the server to the client. This vulnerability exists in OpenSSL versions 1.0.1 through 1.0.1f and 1.0.2 beta.
It is important for server administrators to update OpenSSL as soon as possible and take steps to secure any private data which may have been leaked. This may include updating server certificates and revoking certificates that may have been compromised.
Users should ensure that web sites they use have been secured and should update passwords or other authentication information.

As stated on the HPR Contribution page
We will continue to promote new podcasts and other creative commons material but due to a lack of slots, we are only releasing material created exclusively for HPR. If there is a piece of creative commons content that you would like to promote, then feel free to record a regular show where you introduce the content and explain why it is important, providing links to where we can get more information.
Today I am doing just that. As a member of the HPR community, I would like to bring the podcast LINUX LUDDITES with the tag line "Not all change is progress". Taking their name from "Linux" the an operating system kernel by Linus Torvalds, and "Luddites" from the 19th-century English textile artisans who protested against newly developed labour-saving machinery.
I am submitting Episode 11 as it includes a fascinating interview with Rob Landley, former maintainer of BusyBox and covers among other things his experiences of GPL enforcement. For complete episode show notes see http://linuxluddites.com/shows/episode-11/
If this podcast is not in your feed, you would do very well to add it.
If there is a show is new to the scene, ie not on the linuxlink.net, then contact us about it and also consider submitting an episode as a featured podcast.
LibreOffice Calc: Cells
All spreadsheets have the same basic structure, a table of rows and columns. Columns are headed up A, B, C, and so on. After Z, the next column is AA, then AB, AC, AD, and so on. The maximum number of columns is 1024. Rows are numbered 1,2,3 and so on, and the maximum number of rows is 1024*1024, or 1,048,576. At this time I am not aware of any plans to increase these numbers, though that could change if competitive pressures make it necessary.
Where a row and column intersect, there is a cell, which is given the address of the column followed by the row, e.g. A1, but never 1A. This is very useful since you can use the contents of a cell in a calculation by simply using the cell address. For example, to add the value of cell B4 to the value in cell C3 and store it, you would write “=B4+C3″ in the cell where you want to store the sum. Learning to use cell addresses is extremely important, so get in the habit of doing this at every opportunity.

TuxJam is a podcast that reviews lesser known Free and Open Source Software projects interspersed with Creative Commons licensed music. TuxJam 31 is a special for HPR.
In today's community news we discuss the happenings in the HPR community. On the mumble were Dave Morris and Ken Fallon, while we were joined by Pokey and NYBill from the North East Linux Fest. During the show we also heard from Bruce Patterson formally of the Distro weekly podcast. x1101 a HPR listener and soon to be new contributor and finally Paul from paul dot com Paul's Security Weekly.
There were no new hosts this month.
Running out of shows
We got very few shows lately and were it not for the backup shows been moved into the main queue we would be in trouble.

Mailing List discussions
Policy decisions surrounding HPR are taken by the community as a whole. This discussion takes place on the Mail List which is open to all HPR listeners and contributors. The discussions are open and available on the Gmane archive.
Discussed this month was:
In a discussion started by Dave Morris. Some felt that the content was getting stale, and keeping shows for 2 years or even 3 months was too long. Others felt that these shows were contributed with the purpose of been used in an emergency and therefore should be timeless.
Eventually it was left to each of the contributors that had shows in the backup queue to release them, or to set them as emergency shows. The website has been updated to reflect this change.
The next audiobook is Shaman Tales Book 1: South Coast by Nathan Lowell. It's available on http://podiobooks.com/title/shaman-tales-1-south-coast/.

Usefulness of the Community News Show/Reserved Slot
Last month we asked if the community news should continue - and yes it should. We are open to suggestions on how to improve it.
It was also agreed to allow this show to be reserved.
