HPR3100: For your consideration - Makers Corner

I'm amazed I didn't find this podcast earlier, epically as one half of the team is HPR Host Yannick, and that we listed it on our Sister Project Free Culture Podcasts. This show is a sample episode I picked, but it is not a typical show. I wanted to give a bit more exposure to the interview. In this episode, Nate talks about his oldest boy’s Electronic Engineering class. Then, Jon and Phil join in to talk about the 32Blit...

HPR3096: Unscripted ramblings on a walk: PC Building.

I certainly want to say that this episode isn't a brag-a-thon about my new rig. I try to discuss what surprised me most about how PC building has changed in the last 10-15 years. The parts for my build: AMD Threadripper 1920X 3...

HPR3095: Intro to GIMP

GIMP is the open source alternative to the proprietary Photoshop, and can do most of the same things while respecting your freedom. This show will kick off a new series of tutorials. As a note of caution, I am not an expert, I am just learning GIMP as I go. But I thought there was no harm in sharing my experiences with the HPR community. https://www.ahuka.com/?page_id=1423 Links: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q8C0LJPpr64 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SoP5LOFxPeY https://www.youtube...
