I have moved this whole sorry tale to a separate domain – https://mppsolar.review/
My audio recording / podcast episode is up at Hacker Public Radio , episode 1528.
In this episode I take a swim along a section of the Charente river near Chatain in the Poitou-Charente region of France.
I start upstream at the bridge and go down as far as the weir , then back.
On the way I describe some of the things I am seeing , I pass some cows and a couple of French fishermen.
Apologies for the audio quality and panting, this was recorded by an old MP3 player cable-tied to a wooly hat.
