As promised I built a dual band satellite antenna that will work with an inexpensive FM HT for making satellite mediated QSOs. There are not many materials needed and only a couple of things you can’t get at your local hardware store. The link to the original post about this moxon/yagi is below alone with some photos and information about my implementation.
Git has a great feature to prevent fraudulent commits, especially in public repositories.
You can signed a commit with a PGP compatible tool (GnuPG is probably the most common).
This is great when you’re using the command line tools, just do a
git commit -s and you’re good to go.
Today I exported my old LiveJournal posts due to the new terms of service for the site. I’ve decided to post them here for archival purposes. I didn’t do much reformatting so I can’t guarentee everything will look nice, but it’s available. You can checkout the livejournal tag to see what’s there.
After years of languish I’ve decided to put something on my CSH site so I’ve begun a redesign. Stay tuned for more content.
Ok, here’s some info on my latest brew. It’s the first homebrew for my brewing assistant Brent so we went with something fairly easy and straightforward.
Anyone going to gencon this year?
I’m still in Denver. It’s been a fantastic week weather wise…60’s and even 70 but it’s cold and rainy today. The conference has been pretty good. Made some contacts and saw a couple of good presentations..generally worthwhile. The main conference ends today at noon but this afternoon and tomorrow there’s a special UAS session. Tomorrow afternoon I’m driving up to Boulder to Ball to give a demo. Should be a nice way to wrap up the week. I’m back on a plane saturday morning. It’ll be good to be home. I’ve got a few pics up on facebook and I might be some more up this morning.
I woke up at 4am today to catch a 6:45 to Denver. It was worth it tho since I arrived about 8am local time. Plenty of time to drive to the mountains and ski for the day. It was a great day…the place I went had 3 lifts open and enough runs to make it worthwhile. It was sunny and clear all day until about 2:30 when the wind picked up. I toughed it out until closing then drove the 4 miles up a crazy steep and unprotected switchback to Loveland Pass which is part of the continental divide. The wind was furious up there and it was so cold I couldn’t stand more than about 5 minutes outside the car. Drove back to Denver and checked into the hotel. It’s on the main street in downtown so I walked around a bit and had a quick bite to eat. I’m getting ready for an early night since the conference starts up early tomorrow morning.
Hmm…funny…I woke up this morning and don’t feel Muslim. Maybe that doesn’t happen until the inauguration.
Jenn bought us tickets to a get out the vote concert tonight….Beastie Boys, Sheryl Crow, and Ben Harper! It’s gonna rock….
