HPR1557: Encrypting E-mail on Android; Importing Keys
We have looked at e-mail encryption on both Thunderbird and G-Mail, and that is good, but in 2014 a lot of people use mobile phones and tablets for their e-mail. So it makes sense to look at how we can do this. The solution I am going explore here involves two components, the K-9 Android mail client, and APG, the Android Privacy Guard. I am going to stick to what I know, so if you are looking for help with iPhone or iPad, the best I can do is suggest that you try a Google search. On Android, while many people use Gmail, K-9 is a very popular client for people looking for a more traditional POP3 or IMAP client to handle their e-mail needs. So this should be a good solution for many people. As regards APG, I am not aware that anyone has done an audit of this program. It seems to be the most widely recommended, and is probably OK, but I am making no larger claims for it. - For more go to Links:

HPR1556: Screenplay Writing On Linux and Chromebooks
Writing screenplays for TV or movies is a very precise thing. The industry expects a standardised style and format. ThistleWeb explores a couple of dedicated screenplay writing solutions. Both are dedicated applications that do one job and do it very well. The first is Trelby. It's a GPL cross platform application. It has lots of additional features such as auto completion of character names, summaries and stats. The second application is a cloud service called Raw Scripts. It's a Chrome extention although I think that's just a link to the site. You log in with a Google or Yahoo account. It's like a dedicated Google Docs web app. It does most of the things Trelby does. It also exports to Google if you want. You can share and colaberate with Raw Scripts. It's hosted on their server, although it's AGPL going forward, so it shouldn't be long before you can host it on your own server. I've just started to explore screenplay writing as a writing skillset. Both of these applications make the styling and formating incredibly easy, allowing me to concentrate on the actial story.

HPR1554: 07 - The Crown Conspiracy
SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT HPR_AudioBookClub SNEAK PREVIEW!!! Sometime in the not-too-distant future we'll be reviewing Street Candles by HPR's very own David Collins Rivera (aka Lostinbronx). Street Candles is not finished yet, but is available via RSS and Lostinbronx publishes a new episode each week. This book is excellent, and you'll want to say you were there to see it happen. Head over to LNB's site for all the details and remember to subscribe to his RSS feed: In this episode, the HPR_AudioBookClub reviews The Crown Conspiracy by Michael J. Sullivan. This book received thumbs up from all of this month's participants. You can download this audiobook for free (or voluntary donation) from and it's also available in paperback on Amazon: . You can find more content (including podcasts) from Michael J. Sullivan Many of his books are also available in paper and ebook editions on As usual, during this episode of the AudioBookClub the hosts have each reviewed a beverage of their choice. Morgellon drank a Bourbon and soda, but not during the show because he was driving. He recommends both Woodford Reserve and Evan Williams Bourbons x1101 drank Wild Turkey 101 proof Bourbon pokey drank a cup of Oolong tea. It was probably a little stale, but pokey is a knuckle dragger, so he didn't notice at all. . This was the first time that pokey has reviewed an NA beverage for the AudioBookClub, so we apologize if the show has suffered because of it. Thaj won the Non-Alcoholic division hands down with a glass of fresh squeezed lemonade. Colin couldn't make it to this recording because of time zone differences, but he did write in. I'll add his note to the episode comments. Please add your own comment as well. His beverage however was an Innis and Gunn Original to which he gives his thumb up. Our next audiobook will be How to Succeed in Evil: The Novel by Patrick E. McLean (not to be confused with How To Succeed in Evil: The Original Podcast Episodes by Patrick E. McLean) This book was suggested by Morgellon. Our next book club recording will be 2014/06/10T23:00:00+00:00 ( There are several ways to submit feedback for this episode including the HPR mail list, and the episode's comment section Morgellon is reachable via twitter @lowtekmorgellon or email x1101 can be reached via twitter @x1101, StatusNet @x1101/ and email Thaj can be reached by email pokey prefers his feedback to come via the HackerPublicRadio comment system, but is also usually available on StatusNet @pokey/ Please remember to visit the HPR contribution page. We could really use your help right now. We had a great time recording this show, and we hope you enjoyed it as well. We hope you'll consider joining us next time. Thank you very much for listening.

Kevie and Andrew release TuxJam episode thirty three and a third as an exclusive to HPR on how they got into Linux, interspersed with a few Creative Commons licensed tunes. The story begins in the mid-1990s and some credit is given to a Microsoft product. At no point do they put on terrible Irish accents and discuss the spelling of whisk(e)y*. If you like what you hear then you might like to listen to other TuxJam episodes here: http://unseenstud` * This may not be entirely true.
