Ham Test Flashcards - 2011-2015 General Pool

Submitted by todd on

So it was easier than I thought to alter the parser for the General set after I had the Technician Class working.  I will update the parser code soon on GitHub.  Below are the flash cards for the General Exam.  I haven't spent much time reviewing so send me a note if there is an error.

If you downloaded this before please 2:30PM Nov 26 2014 please re-download there were some parsing errors.

VPS.NET IPv6 Name Server

Submitted by todd on

I became interested in VPS.NET when they sponsored DrupalCon Chicago last March.  It was nice to know they were adding a node so geographically close to me, and fun to watch how many exhibits they could get the VPS.NET robot into. I have had mine on my desk(unless the office cats knock it off) as a reminder to check back for deals and remind me if the need arose.

I've started writing a bot that attaches to my Mythbackend. I'm calling it mythbot. It allows me to check on my recording status through commands like tuners, upcoming, jobs, info. It's written in php and uses xmpphp. XMPPHP does have performance problems. It needs a one liner to fix performance problems.

Update: The code is now hosted on GitHub at http://github.com/toddejohnson/mythbot

Power outage

Submitted by todd on

Power went out in the neighborhood and I'm finally getting to use my generator for the first time this year.  Its great seeing an investment put to use.

Switch to Drupal

Submitted by todd on

I have decided to switch my website to use drupal.  I decided this so that I could use a very stable and well supported CMS to maintain my web site.  Also I am starting to develop some drupal modules and this gives me a place to production test some of them.
