Adamd, Clair, and friends getting an anonymous picture for mastodon. The lady at the end of the table, who was not with our group, was laughing at us.

KAM TNC. Owner said it worked for 30 minutes when he purchased it a long time ago. So far:
LM7805 +5V regulator
LM79L05 -5V regulator
PN2222A NPN GP Transistor
Still waiting for the LM79L05 but if I inject 5V it talks to me via its serial port. A good sign.
Replaced the LM7805 with a DC DC converter.

My newest PC build. 2U chassis, ASROCK 960GC-GS FX, FX-6300, 16G DDR3, 480G SSD, GT1030. The only new components are the 2U chassis and the GT1030.

Missed last night because our clubs Yeasu DR-1X amateur radio repeater died. This picture is our temp setup. Its as bad as it looks. Mobile radio's on an old repeater controller. A pedestal fan provides cooling.

Had a blast with agetty today. Created a serial console at 300 baud and connected. Brought back fun memories. Htop did seem to stop responding though. :) I guess 300 baud isn't enough for htop.

When I create a serial console with 'agetty ttyS0 9600 linux' and connect using minicom or screen. I can't exit man pages. Seems my input is buffered until I kill the process and then my characters are dumped to the cmd prompt. All other programs I tested work fine. Hmmm...

I finished 'breaking/__and/ entering|. 'the extraordinary story of a hacker called 'alien'.
Start at page 72 if you want to skip her drug / experimenting years at MIT. At page 105 I decided I didn't like her because she is an Emacs fan. :) I learned some tricks from the technical details.
Its worth reading, she is extraordinary.

I saw this Prince tribute band performing. They were playing in the park during 4th of July holiday celebrations. It was awesome!
