It was suggested I post, and pin, a toot with information about what it costs to run this instance.
I like this, I want to be transparent, and I think it's important that the community have trust and confidence in me, and the hosting.

Currently the costs looks like this:

* £112.50 a year for a VPS
* €25.00 a year for the domain name

All media (avatars, etc.) are sotred on the server, we use 20G of 40G so far.

Question for everyone. I'm looking for an Android app to help me learn CW. The few I have found boil down to "listen to this and identify the character.”

That's a good start but I'm looking for something that will simulate a key and/or iambic paddle. Any suggestions?

Hello, everyone. By way of I just got my technician license a few days ago. I'm studying for my general license now.

Digital modes, SDR, and CW are all very interesting to me. Right now all I have is a UV-5R and an ABBREE flex antenna.

I have been using Ham Radio Prep and Ham Radio Crash Course (YouTube) as my primary sources of information.

Thanks to @W8HF for telling me about this Mastodon instance.

@oppen I just spotted your note about ariane on fdroid.

I grabbed the latest apk and wow is it slick ! I like that little fade in animation on page load.

Keep up the good work!

Anxiety? Waiting for someone 

for anyone following along at home, it has been half done!

Apparently our main fuse is welded in place so they can't install a new meter because they can't remove the grid side fuse.

Which is good to know if there was a fire or other emergency that required the fuse being pulled...

Apparently I'll have someone else come out and replace ALL of that stuff, then the electric metre can be replaced after that.

But we have a new gas metre!

Anxiety? Waiting for someone 

I have someone coming to install new gas and electric metres today.

They will be here between 0800 and 1800.

They will call before arriving.

We're nearly 20% through the possible period and still no call.

This is completely blocking my ability to start doing ANYTHING.

Essential viewing for anyone who does stuff with electricity I think!

Sorry for the turbulence.

mastodon.radio is now running v3.4.1

We skipped over v3.4.0 (well, we did run it for a few minutes whilst I installed 3.4.1)

Release notes:
github.com/mastodon/mastodon/r
github.com/mastodon/mastodon/r

Something actually useful a (self driving?) car covered in cameras could do - look for "2 hours free parking" signs and automatically start a timer then alert you BEFORE you get a stupid "parking charge".

This toot brought to you by a letter saying I owe £100 for parking for 2h 20m somewhere I thought was 3h free 🤬

I install after I saw someone toot about it. Seems interesting, messages are exchanged via Bluetooth, WiFi, and/tor

I don't have anyone to try it with though :alex_sob:

Howdy y'all! W7QED from Phoenix Arizona here.

I'm currently a Technician class licensee, but actively studying for General.

Main interests other than radio are nature study + outdoors activity, preparedness, arts+crafts, computer programming

Boosts appreciated.

I've decided to Just Do It

I've pushed the code for to a public repo.

Complex 19 is my static site generator for simultaneous and which I use for my personal site:

m0yng.uk
gemini://m0yng.uk
gopher://m0yng.uk

I'm sure there is much wrong with it and don't expect it to be of any use to anyone else (I haven't even picked a license!)
