Should the transcription have "Jack Spirko" (and guests names) bolded for easier reading?

give me a day to try that for ep 877.
that might be just what we need. Want to balance simple format with easy to read.


what about color coding just the names (Jack in Blue, Guest in Green)? too much?

after talking with ShadowRider (another transcriber proofer). We like the idea and are going make sure that the "bolding" is added to the transcriptions when they are finalized (when creating the PDF/DOC/TXT files).

We understand that people are already working hard transcribing audio, so if they don't want to bold/formate as they type that is ok. As we proof the text, it is very simple for us to do a find/replace when we are making the final PDF and Word Documents.

If you guys are interested I have actually written a program / pile o' scripts that scrape the entire website (podcasts and non podcasts alike) and gets most if not all of the information provided (except for the translations obviously).

If its desired I could actually dump every podcast (or ones desired) into a template... Right now I keep them (as part of my program) in a SQLite database.

Great idea. if you could create a text file for 1-1000. That would be awesome. I think we could talk to the Mods, and find a place on the forums to keep them.

Then a transcriber could pick a Ep, get the txt file, and starting typing right way.

Here is a link to the template file:

Give me a few days or a week to finish getting all setup in my new house and I'll start working on a script to do this. Shouldn't take but a single sitting to get it done.

Its actually kinda cool having processed the whole website and looking at the results. An example is I have a unique list of every single URL for Additional resources / sponsors ever used (and obviously all the combinations for each individual podcast).

I'm not a forum troll nor a really active user (I've got about a million things on my plate nowadays) but I don't know if there is any Podcast trivia going around but I have some great ones now that I've gone through this. (I'm not going to give the answers though.  :) ) Such as there is one Episode in the entire collection that has the word Episode misspelled. And there is one episode that never existed or was deleted.

I remember this one. Jack just mislabeled the episodes and didn't go back and change it. I also recall him saying that knowing the missing episode may be helpful in a future contest, so definitely remember it!

Unfortunately I don't know the episode I just know there is a hole in my collection. I can see the sql row count next to the episode numbers. They match up and thennnnnn they don't. I figured all this out when I was debugging my code and making sure that I had everything covered. Thats also how i found out about the misspelling of the word Episode in the title of the podcast. DOH!

Still, I would think it'd be easy enough to find. "select * from TSP where ID <> EpisodeNum", maybe (my SQL is rusty). Or you could do a manual binary search. Dang, now I'm in a programming mood.

Thats not too shabby.  :)

I find myself writing SQL pretty much almost everyday. One day I'll just make views and stop writing the same queries a million times for testing. I never have learned the more complicated SQL stuff. Just rather do data manipulation through C# or Python.

Question.

Do you guys want me to automate creating these templates as a text file, or as a docx file? I found a Python Library for creating Docx, however, I'm not seeing any ability to do bolding, or even centering of text. It does however create headings, bulletted lists and the like.

If I create them as text files they'll all have to (by hand), be formatted as desired. (If you want bolding or centering of text).

I should note that text files are obviously the easiest to produce, however, producing a mildly formatted Docx file doesn't look like it would take very long. I guess I could produce this in .Net where there is ample support for Docx formatting....

Either way I'm resyncing my podcast database with everything now, so it really doesn't matter which way is preferred I'll just write the code to do it.

Ok. After literally fighting all day to get at least one friggin' library to work for either python or c#/.net to work to make either docx or opendocument (odf) formats I wrote a quick script to do text files.

Takes less than a second to run over every single file and they're ready to go, or at least to be viewed. I changed the heading Sponsors Of the Day to "Resources" because its much more applicable and its what they actually are on the podcast. (For example youtube videos and the like).

How do I upload the archive? All 1017 text files, compressed is just less than a meg total.

When I get it up tell me what you guys think. I can quickly whip up the .doc format that I was talking about as well, if you guys want to see that. If there are any tweaks let me know because it won't take me but a second or two to change the code, rerun, it and repost it (so please feel free to pick them apart).

PM me a sample. Just so I can look it over. Then we will get the Mods to suggest a place for the templates.

I actually kind of did a single day today... Was nice. Started a square foot garden. Bought a whole bunch of electronics stuff at Home Depot, then finally ran Cat6 cable through the whole house. Now all I gotta do is combine my  Raspberry Pi, arduino, and new awesome temperature sensors and I can start monitoring soil and air temperatures around my square foot garden.

I won't be taking a true day off from a computer for quite a long long time.... hah
