Oh, I got my usual shit done. But after all that I mostly â€œplayedâ€ with getting my radio to do APRS stuff. Or, I should say, my computer to do APRS stuff. My radio doesnâ€™t do anything with APRS but send the signal my computer tells it to. So, other than having real problems with people being able to follow me around, I wonâ€™t be doing APRS in the truck anyway. GPS is bad enough for that.
Anywho, playing with APRSIS32 and WinAPRS. Neither of which you need a radio with. APRSIS32 is way easier and I can use it on that Windows 8 tablet I have. Which will be good for that class at the next MCARC meeting when Jerry is going to give a class on it. So, while Iâ€™m not really interested in APRS Iâ€™m brushing up on it for the class.
Watching Winter Storm Juno on the Weather Channel. All I can say is: Better they than us! A storm like that out here would completely shut things down from here to Idaho to Southern Oregon. Hell, 2 inches pretty much shuts this area down. Wouldnâ€™t mind getting a couple of feet of snow though. I think my Schweetie and I would stay hunkered down in our nice warm bed for most of the time.
Oh, got an e-mail from my truck that it needs â€œmaintenance.â€ Oil change and rotate tires. So I made an appointment to get that done. Then I got an e-mail from the dealer saying theyâ€™d gotten an e-mail from my truck that it may need some maintenance. Donâ€™t you just love technology!?!?!?!
And thatâ€™s about it. Picked SWMBO up and got her home safe. Sheâ€™s in the kitchen (pictures! I need pictures!) making her salads for her lunches. Iâ€™m about to turn storm coverage off cause, like me, itâ€™s petering out.
