We started producing shows as Today with a Techie 10 years, 11 months, 25 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 23 days.
Klaatu ponders analogue programming and tabletop gaming.
It took a while, but I finally figured out how to install custom recovery and flash a new OS on my $1 tablet.
I use a Plantronics USB headset, my Chromebook, Linux, and Audacity to record on the go.
In this episode I repair one of the straps/handles of a cloth shopping bag. I talk about using a sewing machine, about those dreadful bobbins, and about sewing a Halloween costume one time. I actually cut out about four or five minutes of near silence from when I was trying to get the thread to go through the needle. That's getting much harder to do as I get older. See the Pictures too.
The coffee gator is a pretty nice device, as is the swan-necked kettle they have. I recommend both.
I built a new desktop computer with AMD components.
Klaatu talks about the long-gone (but not forgotten, clearly) DARK CULTS tabletop game. His print-and-play revival is available here: http://gitlab.com/notklaatu/darkoccult

App Inventor for Android is an open-source web application originally provided by Google, and now maintained by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
It allows newcomers to computer programming to create software applications for the Android operating system (OS). It uses a graphical interface, very similar to Scratch and the StarLogo TNG user interface, which allows users to drag-and-drop visual objects to create an application that can run on Android devices. In creating App Inventor, Google drew upon significant prior research in educational computing, as well as work done within Google on online development environments.
