Sorry for the duplicate, Blaise.
There's now a video of Paul Nijjar's presentation on how he creates
the KWLUG podcast. More complicated than just dropping an audio file
into a folder.
But if we only offer one audio format (.ogg) and don't worry about
"album art" then it might be easier.
Stephen, can you run your Ruby script over the existing files to see
if a podcast comes out?
Did we ever get the domain name libreplanetontario.ca ? If so, is
there any storage or hosting associated with that?
