Posting via mail

WordPress is pretty cool – you can mail your blogposts in and get them published automatically. And if you – like me – really like your mail client for writing and editing it couldn’t be easier 🙂 Give it a twirl! I use Postie and that’s a recommended module.

So, what’s happening?

I’ve made a few updates to the system and did some ‘house-cleaning’ so maybe this time I can start to blog a bit more.

As of now the overall language is English but there will be posts in Danish and even Swedish. It’s hard to be multi-lingual when most tools are only built for one language at a time – and support for more languages is only possible through shaky 3rd party add-ons. Well, let’s see how it goes – the new Drupal 8 has best-in-business support for multiple languages so I might change to that soon – so far, I’m going with WordPress.

See you in the comments.

New gear on the way

Put in an order with Wimo yesterday… first new purchase in ~10 years and, man, has things changed!

Main reason is that I commute a lot on a daily basis (approx 230 km return-trip) and why not spend the time right? 🙂
I’ve been quite keen on APRS for ages but never really got familiar with it – started with UI-View and Igates, later over TH-D7 which seemed like an easy way in but somethings wrong with the radio (the plug for GPS) and I never got around to fixing it.
Now you can get a mobile station with the GPS build in so there’s the nice boxed solution I could use – ordered the Yaesu FTM-350 and it’s like the days before christmas!
Will be sure to update with the progress when it arrives.

Oh, and second reason was a hefty 20% discount from the store 😉 Thanks, Wimo.
