I don't visit often, but that has more to do with not having internet at home and less to do with lack of interest.

I think I read that somewhere...

I submit show prep, vote, download MP3s, comment on podcasts and post on the BBS from time to time as well. I primarily visit the site because it generally has lots of news stories relevant to my interests, so it's like a drudge report for liberty minded folks. I also look through the advertisements on the right side of the page when I am on the market for something, just to see if you've got someone advertising with you that could provide the good or service I'm looking for.

I have probably been on the website 5 or 6 times in 3 years...maybe a couple more.  I am super busy most of the time and have little time to sit around looking at a website.  My "perfect" websites (for my busy life) are the ones that are easy to navigate (find what you are looking for without having to do massive amounts of clicking around and/or having a site map that lets me see what's there on one page, FTL could do a better job with this), if I pay for something I love being able to see my account easily and make changes without a lot of hassle (FTL seems to do a great job of this), is not "gaudy" to the point that I see way too much on each page, if I have subscribed to perks or benefits I want those benefits to be easily found (FTL could do a way better job of this IMHO), and I want easy access to some kind of customer service or contact options (FTL does an amazing job of this).  My website preferences are not necessarily what everyone likes...in summary I just like websites that allow me to get done what I need to get done and get back to work/whatever.

Since the reddit integration, I don't really use the website anymore.  The quality of the submitted show prep has declined significantly and the stupid captcha's only show up now and then - it's just not ready for prime time and is barely worth using anymore.

I download FTL via a shell script...   :lol:


Code: [Select]
#!/bin/bash

[ -z "$1" ] && PODCASTS='*' || PODCASTS="$1"

DIR=/home/alex/pub/audio/rss
TMPSH=/tmp/rss-$$.sh
DOTSRC=.source
DOTRSS=.cache.rss

MAXDATE=`date --date='4 days ago' +%Y%m%d`

rm -f $TMPSH

for D in $DIR/$PODCASTS; do
[ -d $D ] || continue
cd $D
ID=${D/$DIR\//}
[ -f $DOTSRC ] || continue
echo Checking $ID ...
rm -f $DOTRSS
wget -q -O $DOTRSS "`cat $DOTSRC`"
if [ ! -f $DOTRSS ]; then
echo Failed $FETCHing RSS for $DIR!
continue
fi
for URL in `cat $DOTRSS | tr '"' '\n' | grep '^http.*mp3$'`; do
F=`echo $URL | sed 's/.*\///g'`
if [ "$ID" == "ftl" ]; then
F=`echo $F | sed -e s/.*-freetalklive-// -e s/ftl/FTL/`
if [ -z `echo $F | grep ^FTL20` ]; then
F="etc/$F"
else
DATE=`echo $F | sed -e 's/mp3$//' -e 's/[^0-9]//g'`
[ $DATE \< $MAXDATE ] && continue
fi
fi
[ -f $F ] && continue
echo wget -O "$D/$F" \""$URL"\" >> $TMPSH
done
done

if [ -f $TMPSH ]; then
sort -ur $TMPSH -o $TMPSH
bash $TMPSH
else
echo Nothing new!
fi

Sorry you don't like it, but the old site was broken and this site actually works, which has resulted in better show prep submissions and less spam.

You can also just go to reddit.com/r/freetalklive if this site bothers you so much.
