@adam Hello Adam. Might it be of interest for you to speak about podcasting 2.0 at the “Festival del Podcasting”? They have both online and local sessions.

Biggest event in Italy. Audience is mostly indie podcasters. Last year they had talks by Spotify and Anchor, whose positions I did my best to “assassinate” in my own segment about open podcasting vs audio-exclusives.


@agates I added the command control system and [puffs up chest] wrote my first test script :-) I hope its not shit 🙂

@agates if I want to play around with a new feature can we merge the testing feature branch back into develop and then I can branch off develop?

@agates the .env file is great, I can run the docker with --env-file .env and don't have to put everything on the command line.

And I'm continuously testing the build docker thing whenever you change stuff. Also VSCode on the Mac fixed itself and now I can build dockers with a right click.

search for Analysis instead, BBC show comes up on top, no issue clicking through.

And I'm wondering if every show by the bbc if flagged as "Government" because I love that 🙂

strange little thing I'm getting on the Podcastindex.org search.

I search for bbc, get a list of many shows...

Every click leads to:

@agates I think trying to build asyncio code around a non-async core (the for loop pulling posts from the stream) is not suitable for my first try at asyncio.

I'm tying myself in knots trying to do it.

Not sure if I should have a thread and a Q or something. I'll wait till you get to look at the watcher but its not urgent at all.

@agates i'm kinda stuck on how to get out of a async for loop that just sits waiting for the next URL and never yields back.

Show thread

It turns out converting old procedural code to an asyncio model is a bit of a mind bender!

@agates !!!

@agates if you're still up... is there an easy way to check if a REQ ZMQ socket is working without actually sending a URL and looking for a response?

@brianoflondon ps if anyone wants to check just run:

python hive-watcher.py --test -q -r 60 --block 319000

BTW I ramped up my testing....

Yesterday I put 2.4m s on the Test network in one day.


I'm done. It works. It scales. If we used multiple Hive accounts we could post more. 🙂

The one we call "TheyCallMeDan" on Hive is one of the network's big holders and also a great thinker about decentralisation. BTW he was banned from Twitter for no obvious reason.

I would strongly encourage you to read this because it directly applies to the work of Podcasting 2.0 and the Index.


lets talk when you wake up if you can 🙂 I was fetching my kid at 2am from a sleep over emergency last night.

@agates And I think it wiped out my settings.json file which had something in I now have to dig out of Time Machine 🙂

@agates I have a feeling one of the changes you made last night, if I wasn't being careful, would result in my uploading my VSCode launch.json which has my posting private key in it as an ENV variable.

I suspect I should be storing that somewhere else now!

Show thread

@agates would love a time to chat for a few mins about some of the config stuff you're doing and how to set things up on my end

@agates @dave and just for the fun of it, the same Raspberry Pi is watching the chain and counting every URL I put on it (That red screen is also an SSH onto the same Pi that's listening to 3 or 4 connections from my Mac sending 24 hrs of history of URLs!

Show thread

@agates @dave We can do 8000 URLs per minute :-) (on the testnet which is basically one API server and a bunch of zombie witnesses controlled by a couple of people.

This throughput is astonishing me and it's all coming from my Raspberry Pi with only one username.

I'm going to do some testing with multiple Hive accounts probably on Sunday.
