That extra nudge of accountability to achieve even a small step on your IH journey each day.

To join in:

01 Share your epic (a big chunk of work with a meaty objective) you'd like to complete by the end of April.

02 Share what you accomplished yesterday.

03 Share what you commit to accomplishing today.

04 Comment on at least one fellow hacker's progress and give them an IH Point for their check in.

Optional:

05 Share your Work In Progress to underscore your accomplishments.

Then tune in the tomorrow to share how you did on your own tasks!

    1. 1

      Thanks, bruh.

      After sending/updating campaigns/settings, what kind of responses you've received from the app waiting list and podcast hosts? Any new challenges or insights popped up for you, @Davey?

    2. 1

      Added some email notification settings options to slow down some of the more frequent emails to podcast hosts

      What does this mean?

      (By the way, I haven't any resources for Privacy Policy.)

      1. 1

        I have a host who releases a show every day. When MR runs its automatic show updating routine and picks up her new episode from her RSS feed, I send a notification email to her, as then she can come in and add interactivity if she likes. This happens automatically and she asked to not get this particular email. I wasn't set up yet to do that, so added the option to do it real quick.
