Over the last few weeks, I have been preparing PDF news articles derived from Voice of America www.voanews.com. They have all been uploaded very quickly through the new Filecast Center www.outernet.is/filecast-center/
I selected them because the content is in the public domain and their articles render into small PDFs very easily using my doPDF program www.dopdf.com. Another source of public domain news content is WikiNews, but I have found their coverage of current news to be too dated, and many of their articles render into PDFs that exceed Outernets 100 kB file size.
I was wondering if other Discussion Group members could provide some feedback? Frequently in posts, news ranks high on the list of desired Outernet content. Perhaps by putting our heads together, we could do magic as has been done in the Weather forecast area.
I’m also curious to know how news content would eventually get included in Outernet downloads by Outernet-Corporate. Back in the Ku band days, Outernet used www.dw.com as a source and prepared the data packages.
Your thoughts. Ken
