Hammin’ It Up

Hammin’ It Up, originally uploaded by maxkelley.

My 2-meter transceiver provided courtesy of AF2K (Icom IC-27H). I probably wouldn’t have been on the air for a long time if he hadn’t lent me this radio. Lately, I’ve been dialing up my highschool’s Echolink and IRLP nodes (357515 and 4799, respectively) and been having a lot of fun with it. Connect up, see if you can find me :) (I think that, at this time, the IRLP node is down.. I will post when it’s back up)

73,

Thanks Norm, W2NWT, for the IRLP node # correction.

CAN HAS STDIO?

Wednesday, December 26th, 2007

Hah… I just stumbled upon one of the funniest things I’ve seen in a bit.. LOLCODE

For example, here would be the classic “Hello world!” in LOLCODE:

HAI WORLD

HAI
CAN HAS STDIO?
VISIBLE "HAI WORLD!"
KTHXBYE

Or, if you like some IF.. THEN.. ELSE.. loops:

HAI
I HAS A VAR
VAR IZ 10 O RLY?
YA RLY
VISIBLE "YOU HAVE 10"
NO WAI
VISIBLE "YOU DON'T HAVE 10"
KTHXBYE
KTHXBYE

I IS LAFFING.

Update on the Ham Situation

Monday, December 24th, 2007

Well, the ham’s in the oven, only a couple more minutes of cooking left, but, oh wait, there’s another ham that’s been made! Yes, that’s right, my callsign is KC2SPY! Happy Holidays..

I is locked out!

Monday, December 24th, 2007

Well, I’ve regained control over my website.. for a while, my own IP had been somehow banned from my webhost’s server, making me unable to post anything (not that I would have had the motivation to anyhow :) ) Right, so, I have obtained an amateur radio operator’s license, and I’m currently of the technician class. Unfortunately, my license hasn’t yet come in the mail from the FCC, otherwise I would give you my callsign… Speaking of ham radio, I’ve been working on a nifty little tool for ham callsign lookup and mapping! Check it out at http://craplandia.org/hamcall/. Oink! More to tell, more fun updates.. for a later time :)
