• New HOMEPHOTO FDN

    From Janis Kracht@1:261/38 to All on Wed Dec 7 09:16:36 2005
    Hey guys, wouldn't you all love to show us where you live? I just sent in a pic of our house barely covered in snow in the HOMEPICS file echo :) C'mon, there must be houses and towns out there COVERED in the white stuff <grin>.... or, if you're like Jack Yates, send in a pic of those darn roses still blooming
    in your 70F region haha

    Really looking forward to some great pics here, you don't have to send a pic of
    your house, even your town would be neat :)

    Take care,
    Janis

    Once I figure out how to use this new digital camera, I'll send in
    a couple pics of penticton. Good 'n' white right now.. :)

    That sounds great :) From what I hear, we may be getting "some +-".. depending
    on what weather service you check <grin>

    I've got kodak's easyshare, and it wasn't "easy" getting it to work under linux
    <bg> ... until I heard that if you just press the 'switch' on the cameradock,
    everything works great :) once you do that, gphoto2 works great and so do a number of other programs ;)

    Looking forward to seeing your pics :)

    Take care,
    Janis

    We've had sub zero temps here for the last month (very unseasonal), and
    two days before xmas it warms up and everything thaws!

    I just needed to charge the batteries. There was enough power for me to
    view the pics on the camera but not transfer. Once I charged them up I
    was good to go, gave me a bit of a scare.. :)

    Looking forward to seeing your pics :)

    I did send one to Andrey, did you see it? If not I'll get some better
    pics and send them along.

    Quick change of subject..

    Remember the DGN FDN that I used to take care of? I passed that on
    to Marty Kazmaier a while back (2 or 3 years ago). Have you been
    connecting with Marty for DGN? If not I'd be interested in getting
    it going again. I saw the DGN_CHAT echo has expired so I re-elisted
    it. I'm not sure yet if that means Marty doesn't want it or if it
    was simply forgotten, but if he's not doing it anymore I'll try to
    get it going again.

    Ttyl :-),

    ... Oh, I'm sorry...were the voices in my head bothering you?

    Heh, well that's good. That's one of the reasons I got the dock so I didn't have to get new batteries all the time.

    I'll check out the area and let you know.. ;)

    Nope, it's not listed on Filegate.zxx right now, so I don't see a problem with you restarting it Alan.

    This is what I have from your previous setup:

    If that's what you want, I can just plug it in this weekend.. Take your time if
    you need it, though, if you want to change any of the above :)

    Hello Janis,

    I grabbed these multimail files for the BBS the other day..

    I thought they would be good candidates for DGN_UTIL unless there
    is a better area for them. Does that sound right to you?

    Hmm.. they're not door utils though :)

    I usually hatch the OS2 version in Fernwood, the source in PDNCEE, the DOS version in Utilnet, and the Windows version in WIN_FDN ;) The Mac version would have no home right now, so why don't you release that version. The others should go where people expect them at this point, you agree?

    Yep, now that you mention it utilnet does sound better, even for the
    Mac version. Although reading the diz that version may be replaced if
    someone compiles a Mac 10.1 (I think) version. Do you have them?

    Yep, I have v47 waiting to go out ... I have to time the releases of all this umm.. stuff <g> that goes out here because our DSL line is so stinky... it's a 5M Line, but we have yet to see bandwidth like that from this friggin' ISP (what drag :( ). Anytime I send files out, the bandwidth gets saturated big time... (upload _and_ download).. Like when Al Lawrence sent me the notice about the Sunrise updates, I couldn't send them all out at once since no one in
    the house would have been able to do squat if I had.. and we signed a 3yr. contract :( Oh well..

    Anyway sorry for the rant, TDS.NET, our ISP, really kills me (literally ;) ) When we got the line they did install another T1 line, and I wanted to say, hey, how about installing a bunch of them?? ;)

    Take care,
    Janis

    I know what you are saying well.. ;) I am lucky with my setup now, I
    see speeds in the 7M range quite often and a couple times I've seen
    it over 10M. I had to double check and be sure I really had the file.. :)

    I never asked for that kind of service, I just get it.. :) I never
    use it much anymore except for binkp is hard at work here. And when
    my son does his gaming the modem light flash constantly.

    Looks like you ISP is working on it too, as long as that continues
    I'm sure they get things going.. :)
