For java software development: "The Java Posse" is great
 I have always enjoyed talk shows but I have no interest in the topics presented. NPR has multiple good shows but I find it hard to plan my day around the radio shows (I don't do that for TVs either!). I starting listening to...

Radio programs have evolved over time. Their broadcasts have transformed from a strict, informative purpose into many different formats. However, one of the main changes of the radio programs has been a wide reach of an audience and more listener-friendly formats/mediums.

In contrast, podcasts are rather slow to catch up. Podcasts suffer from amateur-dominated issues. I listen to quite a few Podcasts while I’m working, driving, or in my spare time.

I'm trying to import a list of RSS feeds:
http://feeds.feedburner.com/ICringely
http://feeds.feedburner.com/Morningstar-Articles...

All of the URLs are separated by one line but when I try to use the batch import it tries to add 1 feed with a URL of all of the feed addresses concatenated.

Congratulations to Maker Faire and MAKE Magazine founder +Dale Dougherty, named a "Champion of Change" by the White House today!

"You're sort of the anti-Washington, in that you guys just hang out and do great stuff," said U.S. CTO Aneesh Chopra in introducing him. Their conversation was streamed live online at http://whitehouse.gov/live.

"Tinkering was once a solid middle class skill," said Dougherty. "It was how you make your life better. Making involves a willingness around risk, he emphasized "Ok, you fail. So get up and do it again."

It's also about what people do because of passion and personal interest. "People are building robots because they want to," he said. "It's an expression of who they are and what they want to do."

Now, MakerFaire is bringing many families together around making. In California, we have about 100,000 people coming to Maker Faire, said Dougherty. "We've got a lot of kids who don't want to sit in a seat & read a textbook. They want to DO stuff. How do we unleash that power?"

From the press release: "The recognition will come at the first part of a day of activities the White House is calling “Make it in America,” which will bring together American leaders helping to create high-quality jobs in the United States.

The White House Champions of Change Initiative profiles Americans from all walks of life helping the country rise to the challenges of the 21st century. These Champions of Change are doing extraordinary things in their communities working to out-innovate, out-educate and out-build the rest of the world. For more: http://www.whitehouse.gov/champions

Mr. Dougherty is being recognized for his work as founder and publisher of MAKE, a do-it-yourself magazine that helps readers make the most of their technology at home and away from home. Mr. Dougherty leads the Maker Media division of O'Reilly Media, Inc. He also developed Maker Faire, a fair that showcases DIY approaches in arts, crafts, science and engineering. Maker Faire showcases the innovation and creativity of its participants.

“Innovation happens everywhere;” Mr. Dougherty said, “not just in universities or corporations. The innovators who come to Maker Faire to share their ideas are living proof of that.”

Why is it setup like this? Why are the options for file renaming even an option if the setting is not enabled?

Since SongKong is just an improved interface (well it provides command line enhancements) ... will the people who bought a license to Jaikoz get a license to Songkong as well?

I tried to register on the forum with my Yahoo email address and it claimed that I was blocked from doing so due to "Spam Registrations"

I only signed up to ask: Is it possible for TT-RSS to keep the articles in the DB forever? [No expiration (I'm assuming thats the default behavior)]

+Chuck Frain  I personally was not planning it, but I did not want my starred items to just go away after 60 days.
Thanks!

I've had their pizza at the store and I had it at a party. It's pretty tasty and I was pretty happy. It appears that they can't get their act together when delivering pizza. After an hour and a half, I called and checked with them. They stated that my pizza just finally came out of the oven and that I should now be expecting my pizza by now 9:15, ordered and paid by 7:10. (Taking 1.5 hours to go from order to "out of oven") They suggested that since it's 8:44 that I should just wait till the now quoted 9:15, despite stating my concern about that it took that long to make a pizza. When comparing them with the peak time of Piece the person claimed that the 1 location Piece pizza was a multi-million dollar company and they have one oven. (But 2 locations) It's normal for all delivery places to over quote you for the time it takes. For other businesses: 1. Dominoes: 30mins average (They used to make that a guarantee) 2. Piece 60min start/90mins peak/3h Blackhawks playoffs [this is on top of a constant crowd of people at their place) 3. Lou's/Unos: 45 minutes just to bake the pizza, stated up front and this at at the place. I've received a pizza from these guys within 1h15m from their delivery only location.

Over zealous door staff, bad wait staff, and shit service. They are more interested in getting your money and kicking you out than for you to enjoy the place.

The hardest beds that I've ever had in a hotel. Breakfast is not very good, and tends to close before 9.

I've been to much better. Its also a bit pricey. I'm not sure where one $ comes from when all entries are above $10.
