I’m looking for FOSS knowledge base software that will integrate with SalesForce. Already packaged for EPEL would be great but not required. Anyone know of such a monster?
Southeast LinuxFest (SELF) 2012 will be in Charlotte, North Carolina, which is a much better option than Atlanta or wherever the other proposed locations were. I am excited to see what talks will be offered this year. I am also thinking of taking the train down the Charlotte. From Richmond the train goes through the cities of Raleigh, Cary, and Durham, to name a few. Perhaps we can have a hacking car on the way down!
I run a SKS key server and watch my daily numbers to see how many keys get updated, etc. Being a numbers guy I wondered how many people, like me, update their GPG keys, I specifically update the expiration date and generate new encryption keys annually, at the beginning of the new year. Apparently I’m not alone:
|Time||New Keys||Updated Keys|
Specifically these keys were updated at 1700Z. I’m not sure I have the ability to see which keys were updated but I’d love to know how that happened.
A recent discussion on the Radiogram listserv got me wondering about my traffic handling numbers since I started working in NTS in 2010. Here’s what I came up with:
In 2010 I handled 960 messages, sending 250 of my own. In 2011, however, I handled 1658, creating 365 myself. That’s a ~73% increase in messages handled over 2010! What’s funny is looking at the numbers I took a break at the beginning of 2011 and didn’t really start handling traffic seriously until September. I handled the majority of my messages during the last quarter of 2011. I’m hoping the trend continues and the NTS continues to be a strong component of the ARRL.
December was a busy month for me. Not only did I have a new harmonic join the family (callsign will be forthcoming in the next few years, I hope) but I also took some TCC shifts as well. The NTS message numbers speak for themselves:
Total Message Count: 546
This also means that I finally made the Brass Pounders League since I handled over 500 messages! Whew! It was a lot of fun and I hope I can continue the trend into 2012.
My PSHR came out to be 1/40, 2/40, 3/20, 4/0, 5/0, 6/10, T/110. Nothing earth shattering there.
The first QSO of 2012 was with a good friend of mine, Joe K4EIT. Joe received his ticket late last year and I have been trying to hook up with him ever since. With our schedules dividing us it has been difficult at best. Today, however, the planets aligned and I was able to help him get his transceiver aligned. He’s in the log but not getting one of my QSL cards until I get a CW QSO in the books as well. 🙂
