Announcements via RSS Feed?

2012-11-24T21:54:41+00:00

Would it be possible for an "Auto announcer" to read from a, for example, Subreddit RSS Feed? If so, is there already one you are willing to name / link?

Thank you,

Miningdude 

Edit: /u/thesbros found This for those curious

Do you believe in earning on fiverr as a career?

2015-08-22T23:10:45+00:00

I came across this article:

Seniors gear up for the sharing economy

This is the most interesting part:

At age 67, Folk spends up to 30 hours a week on projects generated through Fiverr.com (fiverr.com), a shared-economy website that requires all its vendors to offer something to customers for just $5 and takes a 20 percent commission on earnings.

Folk, a former radio announcer and small business owner who lives near Pittsburgh, earns approximately $10,000 per year in supplemental income to his Social Security benefits on the site writing short stories and narrating scripts. He also sells - no surprise here - an ebook explaining how to succeed on Fiverr.

So, he earns little less thank $1k monthly, and he's retired.

I see / read other people make decent monthly pays on fiverr as well.

What are your experiences and thoughts? Can you build a career on fiverr or any other similar website?

Techtronix (#Gaming) Game Nights

2016-04-03T21:56:13+00:00

Fellow staffer /u/The0x539 and I will be in charge of coordinating game nights on Techtronix, primarily involving the Techtronix Steam Group. I'm going to lump in Techman's World with these activities as well, because why not.

Requesting an Event

You can request a game night involving a certain title, or multiple titles, by doing any of the following:

Hosting Events

For now, game nights will be hosted by Techtronix staff until the current system has been "broken in" so-to-speak. The idea of some game nights being handled by the community is not out of consideration for the future, so do feel encouraged about wanting to host your own event in the future.

TeamSpeak

Unless otherwise, the Techtronix TeamSpeak server will be used for voice communication. Some games do have their own voice communication systems built in but it's usually easier for just the whole group to have a separate (steady) connection to voice chat.

How Events Will Be Announced

Announcements for future game nights will be:

  1. Posted here on /r/Techtronix. If you are subscribed or have us added in your RSS feed, you can also see news and other announcements at the same time.
  2. Submitted through Steam so that you get a notification on the desktop
  3. Announced via Announcer or an operator's nick on Techtronix itself. Please refrain from ignoring Announcer as potentially important news can be delivered through it.

Other

This post is open to edits in case I or /u/The0x539 wishes to add something else. After the protocol for running game nights is established, a wiki page will be created that permanently addresses game nights. This post is a time to ask for feedback as well.

Goal

Remember, folks -- This is all about having fun! Techtronix staff would like to keep the community engaged as much as possible, and have a great time while doing so. Bad sports (such as griefers) are subject to being banned from participating in game nights without warning.

WTF is going on with the ProPublica podcast? It's become a trainwreck

2017-06-12T02:31:27+00:00

I listen to the ProPublica podcast, which has recently gone through a dramatic format and name change. I don't know to be polite about this. The podcast has gone to hell. What is going on right now should go into the podcasting textbooks as classical methods of driving your podcast into a ditch and losing all of your audience. First off, they are changing the name to "The Breakthrough". Why the name change? No idea. I guess they want people to know that the old podcast is dead, but they are going to re-use the old rss URL to carjack the audience. Like almost everything else in the change, some manager decided to "just fk st up" for the sake of doing things to look busy. I don't really mind a name change or shaking things up a little, but everything good is gone, and everything bad is worse. The podcast previously had some issues that could be improved. There wasn't a lead-in even introducing the name of the podcast or the date of recording (important when you going to be talking about context-sensitive material like news events). Sometimes the format could be a little slow and dry, and editing could be a tiny bit better. These were all things that deserved evolutionary improvement, not a dramatic wrecking-ball overhaul. The 2-5 minute long re-introductions to the podcast are huge turnoff. Yes, I'm already a listener. No, you don't need to sell me on your podcast. Just get to it already. All you are doing by soliciting the podcast that I'm ALREADY LISTENING TO is making me what to unsubscribe. No, you don't need to tell me how awesome your podcast is and how great it's going to be (some day). The new format feels heavily scripted and edited, to the point of being fake. And that fakeness leads me into questioning the veracity of what I'm hearing. The most recently podcast from June 9, 2017 is what sent me off to write this post. Half way through the interview between TyLisa and Carrie Levine it became painfully obvious that the question TyLisa was asking had been recorded and edited AFTER the answers were being given. The entire "interview" was a pre-recorded splice-job. But I think the worst offense that has really turned me off is the tone of the voice of the interviewers and how painfully scripted their remarks have been lately. It seems like ProPublica... I mean, "The Breakthrough", is trying to attract a more "diverse" audience. That is to say, they are lowering the intellect level so dumber people can understand the subject matter. This just pisses me off and it feels like I'm being talked down to. This was already a podcast for journalists and intellect wonks. Pissing off your existing audience while trying to attract people who probably don't even want to listen to this type of podcast in the first place is a guaranteed bi-directional audience purge. The whole thing just has me sour. Does anyone else listen to this podcast, and if so, what do you think about the format change? Do you like it? I'd be interested to know. EDIT: I guess one of my principal complaints about the podcast is that it has been over-engineered. That is, whoever is directing this project is over-doing the effort and making it look contrived. Most podcasts have rough starts I've learned to just skip the first ten episodes to get to the good stuff. It takes time to wear into the format and get into the groove. I think if you made most podcast announcers listen to their first ten podcasts, they would cringe and shriek. That's basically what the ProPublica... I mean, THE BREAKTHROUGH, has become. Except, it's not stopping and getting it's grove on. The pain is just continuing. Whoever t[...]

Your 2017 Season Survival Guide or How to Enjoy Baseball

2017-03-30T14:50:21+00:00

Phew, alright, so this is a bit of a long post. If you are a brand new fan I'd recommend going through most of it, if you're a veteran you'll know which sections you'll want to read by their headings. My goal here is that both new and returning fans can learn how to better enjoy the season and know what's going on on R/Baseball this year. Okay, take some time and read through what you want to read through below! Introduction for new and renewed interest fans. Baseball has a long season. I don't just mean that in terms of time between opening day and the World Series (which can be considered long as it is), but also the 162 games played in 183 days, 18-20 times against the same 4 teams each. It can be daunting, and many people lose interest by "the dog days" of June and July. This guide is meant to help you if you wish to avoid being one of those who loses interest a couple weeks after Opening Day. First and foremost if you are a new fan or newly returning, you must remember one thing: you do not need to watch every game. Many football fans, and even some basketball and hockey fans, find this difficult, they're used to setting aside a few nights a week to watch their team, and they can watch all the games. Baseball isn't like that. For the next six months, your team will only have 21 days where they won't be playing a game. And some of the games they play will start as early as 1pm, others will end after 1am. If you miss a game it's okay, odds are there's another one tomorrow. If you miss a week, no big deal, hell if you get busy for a few months and aren't able to watch you team, that's not an issue, because you can still follow your team. Baseball is a game to be followed. In the old days it meant picking up the morning paper and checking the box scores. Now it means being able to have a final score texted/tweeted/messaged/emailed/what-evered to you the minute the game ends, or rolling over in bed when you can't sleep and grabbing your phone to check the West Coast scores. It means being able to check reddit in the morning to see any breaking news from across the league, or catch a story you missed. We live in a time where you can go to MLB.com and get a recap of every game from last night in less than 10 minutes. Honestly, baseball was made to be consumed, and the technology age makes it easier than ever, whether you want to spend hours every day pouring over stats and analysis, or 15 seconds to see how your team and their playoff rivals did today. The rest of this guide is mostly dedicated to ways that you can help yourself follow your team, and if you have time follow the entirety of MLB. I personally watch only a couple Twins games a month, I work late in the summer and by the time I get home they're usually already down by four, but I still keep up with how they're doing and keep my finger on the pulse of the league. I end up watching a lot of West Coast baseball, though I need a new default now that Vin Scully won't be serenading me every night. Anyways, enough rambling, TL;DR Don't worry if you miss games, there'll be one tomorrow. Finding a Team I always recommend following the local team since you'll have more access to news about them in the local media and should be able to get their radio broadcast, as well as TV broadcasts of them if you have cable/satellite, and depending on where you're at the occasional over the air game, but if you don't live by a team or don't want to follow the local team, or are just looking for a second team to follow, I wrote this in depth guide to picking a team that's the[...]

In simpler terms, it's a much more lightweight means for handling update messaging on the network, with reduced risk of updates being lost in caching or other processes - and reducing lag.
