#Introduction to mastodon.radio: I'm a newly licensed (July 19) amateur radio operator from Germany. My callsign is DL6MHC. I work in the field of information security, like to photograph on film, play games on 8-bit computers, support the FSFE, play chess (very unsuccessful) and prefer a command line over a GUI. Thanks for having me :)
I forked the Hugo theme "smol" and released it as "amberterm". If you see it, you know why it is named like that ;)
The theme includes the additional files to automatically generate a Gemini capsule from your Hugo markdown files.

...and of course here: gemini://qrz.is/gemini-amberterm/
Discovered this service recently, a finger-based social network
If you need a finger client and have rustc installed, you can use this: https://git.alexwennerberg.com/misc/tree/main/item/finger.rs
I relaunched my personal website after I figured out how to handle the imprint obligation (Impressumspflicht). The new home can be found here: https://qrz.is
Furthermore, I moved my GitHub repos to https://git.qrz.is. Still looking for the best method for notifying GitHub visitors about the new location.
Here is a nice cheat sheet for those who also have problems interpreting the excellent hamsql.com solar report banner: https://noji.com/hamradio/pdf-ppt/noji/Noji-Article-Band-Conditions-Banner.pdf #hamradio
Today I learned about pylint (https://www.pylint.org/) and then about how crappy my code is - but I learned and fixed a lot. This tool is amazingly easy to use and gives good results!
qrzlogger (https://github.com/exitnode/qrzlogger) is now installable via pip:
# python3 -m pip install qrzlogger
All this Python packaging is new to me so I hope it works.
I am thrilled how far you can get with 4w transmission power (SSB / Phone). The uBitx is a surprisingly nice TRX! The map shows the result after a few evenings of operating the uBitx. #hamradio
