The passing of FiftyOneFifty

It is with deep sadness we announce that another of our hosts and friends Donald Grier, known to us as FiftyOneFifty, has passed away.

FiftyOneFifty's frat brother Randy Hall has written an lovely piece. The team at Linuxlugcast are preparing our own tribute if you want to contribute an audio file you can email Honkeymagoo or join the show.

Our thoughts go out to his friends and family at this difficult time.

Media embedded show notes

NO, NO, NO!

This is likely to be an accessibility nightmare and might well render it impossible for blind participants like me to read the notes at all.

I admit I rarely consult the notes, except for shows with a *strong* hacker twist, like the shows about xsd or Dave's bash series of shows.

Anything which is likely to have links, such as links to github repositories, or fragments of code I might like to copy and paste and fiddle about with.

I can't imagine that other people who refer to show not3es for clicking on links will be helped by embedding text into media files either.

And while on the subject, I have not seen this yet on HPR I think, but when anybody includes the output from cli stuff in show notes, posting screen-shots of console or terminal output also makes it impossible for me to access the text.

Keep the show notes as separate text please and don't embed them into media. If you do, maybe we can have them as both.
