Yeah my problem hasn't been getting the messages; it's been getting the
in this particular terminal to respond to them. I know that there were qui
few going back and forth with Nancy and I for awhile. Always glad to get DAG>extra input. :)
Ack. Yeah I just try to stay away from Microsoft in general. Theamount
resources that are used there, and the product that's being paid for... We
I don't mind other people doing it, but it's not my choice. ;)
I have looked a little longingly at Synchronet's 'doze GUI, though, for
awhile. At some point I may end up trying to set up Synchronet on Windows DAG>VM just for the heck of it. I basically only operate Windows if I'm using DAG>Virtual Studio, though.
Smoke here from wildfires today. Visibility at the airport was said to
statute miles. I'm guessing that hasn't been updated for awhile, I'd be DAG>surprised if that'd hold to a test right now. It's hazy and yellow out and
smells pretty thick of wildfire.
Rain would be a good thing. :)
Do storms knock out your power pretty regularly there?
I don't do a much work with the BBS as I used to...including playing
the doors. But, I'm in the process of making a software switch from Virtual Advanced to GT Power. The work isn't hard, but it sure is
The only thing I use Internet Explorer for is Windows Update.
Otherwise, I use Google Chrome.
Rob Swindell (aka Digital Man) just released version 3.16 of
I pass a lot of weather related traffic via amateur radio...and I've
been dubbed "The Jim Cantore Of D-Star". Jim Cantore is one of the meteorologists with The Weather Channel...and D-Star is a digital mode
of amateur radio. But, unlike Jim Cantore...
Florida may be the lightning capital of the world, but at times, I
dare say that Arkansas is a close second.
With one episode of storms, in a 12 hour period, 25,000 lightning
strikes were recorded across Arkansas. In a 1 hour period during that time, in Pulaski County (Little Rock), there were over 500 lightning strikes!! One of those hit a power substation in west Little Rock,
putting much of the western part of the city in the dark for several hours.
Yeah I haven't gotten much time lately for my BBS, either,unfortunately.
I'm probably letting some new users slide off due to my lack of time throwi
up new content and the like. :P
Virtual Advanced to GT Power? GPU issues?
Yeah that's pretty much what I do when I'm on a windows box, too.
Yep, I'm running 3.16b.
Heh. Always good to have a little fame in your own circles of interest.
Yeah I was stuck out in the woods in Arkansas when I was cross-country
homeless at one point... With my 2.5 year old son... A cloudburst happene
right after I got the tent set up. Still don't have any idea what else DAG>could've been out in those woods off of the highway; I'm glad I never had DAG>opportunity to find out. There was a _lot_ of lightning, though. We were DAG>hilltop, too, due to lack of time to find out exactly what resources we had
workwith before the clouds opened up. It was kind of a terrifying night...
wish I remember how far through the state we were at that point. That was DAG>awhile ago, now, though.
Ugh work calls. :P
I don't get that many callers, but this is one of the last hobbies I
can still do, because of declining health.
Actually, some days, it's constant crashing of the VADV Telnet Server. That's why I want to go back to GT Power...my BBS roots.
I saw where one website wouldn't support Chrome...so I resolved I'd
never go to that site again.
I didn't know you were a Sysop...at least you know what it's like on
this side of the connection.
One of my fellow ham radio operators, who works with Skywarn at the National Weather Service in Taunton (Boston), Massachusetts, noted that "being called the Jim Cantore of D-Star is quite a compliment". :)
The deaths from lightning strikes this year are more than double what
it was last year. Yet, despite all the warnings, safety awareness, etc., many choose to ignore the warnings. You can't fix stupid. :P
Ugh work calls. :PAbout as bad as when nature calls. :P
