Do the right thing, even when you think no one is watching.

It’s called Integrity.

Student: this isn't a question about lecture, but ... it's that a SLIDE RULE on your belt?
Me: why yes it is, thank you for asking.

So we've begun to create a Fediverse multi protocol digital voice network: fediverse.radio/#DV

This network so far only includes TGIF DMR and Yaesu Fusion System. What do you want to see also included? What other way of accessing the Fediverse voice chat would you prefer?

Brandmeister DMR?
Something else?

Any help or suggestions are welcome. Also if someone would like to run a reflector/TG/whatever and have it bridged with the existing ones.

In Australia the AX Prefix is reserved for 3 special days each year, however with the Queens passing it has been unofficially accepted that 19-23 of September that the AX Prefix may be used. For example instead of myself using VK3XEM, I would be able to use AX3XEM if I so desired.

So if you hear any AX stations operating over the next day or so they are good to work.

In 1994 SDF got its first 1GB SCSI drive, a 5.25" full height Fujitsu attached to an Adaptec 1541CF

Here is df output from August of 1994 showing how the drive was sliced with space for USENET, user directories in /u and the new /udd, as well as FTP and Gopher in /pub.

If you're a #Windows user and love using its Terminal app, you can now enjoy having themes. Yes, it even looks like there's a Hot Dog Stand theme! :flan_tongue: :crt_w_blue_screen: #Microsoft #WindowsTerminal

When you’ve got a flip dot panel from a bus, it’s required to make it play Tetris. Never has the game sounded as good.

May Her Majesty rest in eternal peace.

God save the Queen.

RANT: Why doesn't Lenovo simply remake the perfect (in my opinion) ThinkPad X220 chassis and upgrade the guts? (CPU/GPU/SSD)

Matte display, amazing keyboard, tons of I/O ports (no need for random dongles), etc.
