Podcast tech tip for resetting android radio connections

If you have an android car stereo for BT streaming (and who doesn’t these days) and are having problems playing certain podcast episodes, here a solution.

The title of the podcast episode may have a special character (like a ‰x) or be too long. This will cause the display to crash, and that may freeze or reset the whole device.

I’ve also had trouble with long podcast descriptions with special characters in the rss feed crashing devices and podcast players.

The less you put in the title and feed, the better your feed will perform in this buggy software world.

This took me quite some time to figure out. I even had to listen to a horrible podcast. on the subject to figure it out.

How to Search and Download Torrents OFFLINE with OfflineBay (thePirateBay offline)

Most people don’t realize that the Pirate Bay doesn’t host anything except a file that has a common magnet link that people can share to download files from each other. This program allows you to download that file, and since it doesn’t change that often then it makes sense to have a copy for yourself and just updated once a week or so. What they should do is have a resilio sync Link to always have the latest copy of this torrent tracker file on your local computer. I wonder why they haven’t done that?

Job Alert: How Would You Like to Babysit Robots?

BOOK A NIGHT at LAX’s Residence Inn and you may be fortunate enough to meet an employee named Wally. His gig is relatively pedestrian—bring you room service, navigate around the hotel’s clientele in the lobby and halls—but Wally’s life is far more difficult than it seems. If you put a tray out in front of your door, for instance, he can’t get to you. If a cart is blocking the hall, he can’t push it out of the way. But fortunately for Wally, whenever he gets into a spot of trouble, he can call out for help.
