The FCC is picky about the "what" is transmitted.  Data tones are
different from voice in the opinion of the FCC.  They call them
emission types.  Heh, heh..


I'm making a wild guess here, because I don't know the frequencies or channel bandwidths for CB, nor the frequency spreads for packet radio signals, but perhaps the FCC is concerned that packet radio signals might use more bandwidth than a single CB radio channel is allocated. If the signal bandwidth is more than the bandwidth for the channel plus the guard-bands, it would interfere with adjacent channels. If I remember correctly, there's at least one CB channel reserved for emergency use. It would definitely be bad to interfere with that.

That might be the objection.  I never followed any petition to get F2D emissions allowed on 11m.  It is easy to get a ham license these days as there is no code requirement right up to a general license.

Pothole gardening.

That reminds me of the time I found a single flower growing out of a crack in the mortar of my house's chimney last year. That was weird.

Now that I own an angle grinder perhaps I should repoint it.

Anyone else here using Foursquare? I've been playing with it and would love to have some chatter with folks I know from here.

It was interesting, for about a week.

I use it, mostly to get free chips and salsa from Chili's.

How do you do that?

They always have a check-in coupon here. If you check in it shows you the coupon on your phone and you show it to the server and they bring you your chips and salsa.

That may be specific to the location where I live, but I'm pretty sure I have heard others mention it.

That's an accurate description of the service.

Someone here will appreciate this.

Heh. It's somewhat accurate but I'd say it's not mean-spirited enough :)

This could be useful for a brief period until the peegs all have IPv6 ;)

Boy is my attention wandering today. I went from nanokardashians to google trends to debian and landed on something I actually need: unofficial CD images which include non-free firmware packages.

That may be the very first time Reality TV did something useful in my life.

Today, a discussion about email clients (actually raster going mad over something thunderbird did) provided me with this interesting link:

 http://www.vanschneider.com/work/mail/

The guy is talking about new ways to design (and he obviously is into design by the looks of the page...) email clients. Since Webcit is something along that line and I am always seeking inspiration, I want to hear what you are thinking about his ideas (that Schneider's ideas, not rasters!)

You should try to recruit him for the WebCit design team :)

hehe, I like some of his concepts, but personally I am not really convinced about the actionsteps approach. what is your opinion about that?

Would this imply that we should be able to tag mails consistently so it might be usable from fatclients?

Anyway, I like some of his style guidelines and the overall idea of a searchable/browsable list of attachments. But this would probably require some heavy work in citadel server.

WRT login modal:

There is an easy fix in order to let opera mobile users log in. The downside is that it gets a little less beautiful. Also tinymce does not work in opera mobile at all, it loads but I was not able to enter the message text. This might be fixed with a tinymce update, will try that later.

Now whats the easiest way on debugging android browser? Somebody mentioned android running inside of virtual machines... Also are there major differences between the various flavours of android?

I was considering buying a Childpad for my son to fool around, that would give me access to an android4. Maybe I can find old and cheap 2.x devices on ebay.
