Paying for podcasts with micro micropayments.
Lightning solves these problems with the same method it solves many others: by decentralizing the network. The only obstacle — until a few months ago — was how to bring Lightning together with podcasting. As soon as Adam Curry told me about the podcast:value standard, which he developed with Dave Jones, I saw that they had already done the heavy lifting of compiling an index and a standard protocol. In order to unite the free, direct, creator-to-listener structure of podcasting with the free, direct, payer-to-recipient structure of Lightning, we just had to plug their protocol into Breez with a couple of bells and whistles. (Actually, it’s more like rockets and confetti.)
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.
For those of us binge-watching TV shows, installing new smartphone apps or sharing family photos on social media over the holidays, it may seem like an abstract predicament.
Save the Planet! File share with torrents!
How do you know if it’s a gps dart or a bullet?
How many guns do the cops carry now? Bullets, taser, gps?
Great app for listening to podcasts without the usual YouTube limitations like ads and not playing in the background.
Not good if true.
Almost every big motor manufacturer striving to produce millions of electric vehicles buys its cobalt from the impoverished central African state. It is the world’s biggest producer, with 60 per cent of the planet’s reserves.
No wonder the US is moving into the DRC.
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?
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.
