In spite of all the answers the internet has given us, its full potential to transform our lives remains the great unknown. Here are the nine key steps to understanding the most powerful tool of our age – and where it’s taking us.

Have you ever been looking for the pinout of a connector or cable? Great chance you’ll find it at ALLPinouts!
Not much ham radio related info for now. But it’s a wiki so feel free to add the missing info!
Most of us have some experience with this 🙂
Same goes for radios and all other kind of equipment: “Hey you’re a HAM, can you fix my television set?”

According to The Telegraph Dr Mark Gasson, a British scientist implanted a chip in his hand which was programmed with a computer virus. He claims other electronic devices could get infected with the same virus after coming into contact with this one.
Sooner or later we’ll all have a microchip behind the ear like some of our pets already have. No more need for passports etcetera. But big brother will always know where we are also…
With a well written computer virus suddenly we’ll all be called Michael Jackson 🙂
After installing the update from Internet Explorer 7 to IE 8 Microsoft again made the default email client Outlook instead of Thunderbird. Although this happened in the past, this time it wasn’t as easy to solve as before.
This time everything seemed to work fine except when right-clicking a file and selecting ‘Send to Email receiver’. On one of my machines XP kept opening the email window in Outlook, on the other machine I got a window stating there was no standard email client found.
I found the solution here: www.vistatips.com
In short this is the solution:
Thunderbird must be selected as the default for mail in three (3) places:
1. Control Panel | Add/Remove Programs | Set Program Access and Defaults
2. IE Tools | Internet Options | Programs | E-mail
3. In Tbird itself (e.g., Tools | Options | General)
Number 1 was clearly the solution for both machines this time…
Thanks again Micro$oft…
PS I suppose the problem is the same on Vista as on XP machines, I only use XP pro.
Before some of you smart guys send me any static about wanting to stay with Microjunk instead of Linux, my business runs on software developed on the Windows platform and that is not so easy to change, sorry.
Changed my contact adress. If you have your own domain name you should use it shouldn’t you? As of today my email address is [callsign]@[callsign].be, where [callsign] is MY callsign (of course). This is to prevent spambots from stealing it and using it to send spam to me later. I get more than enough spam already. For those of you who don’t understand (the non-HAM’s supposedly), you can also contact me via the form at the left hand side of every page.
And before one of you smart guys makes the remark, yes Thunderbird filters the spam very well. But the email client on my PocketPC doesn’t filter it at all… (Yes, Bill Gates again).
In a few weeks from now the old @KTK.BE address will cease to exist.
Not much new to mention here but something is bothering me… We all know that Thunderbird is probably the best e-mail client around. But does anyone know how I can get rid of this junk in incoming e-mails?
- Bart: Maybe by blocking the Incredimail IP number in your hosts-file?
- ON5MF: yes that might do it… will have to look into that. Thanks!
Discovered a problem when using Filezilla, sometimes filenames are
swapped when uploading multiple files of this website.
Comments on the Filezilla forum: “it’s a server problem“
Comments of my provider:”get an other FTP soft“
As finding other (freeware or open source) FTP software seems easier
than changing providers I guess I’ll have to get rid of filezilla…
