Anyone on here using Charter Telephone VOIP service? I've currently
got Verizon, but the wife hates it because our phone lines get flaky
all the time, esp when it rains.
So I'm thinking to save money and combine all my stuff onto Charter.
I've already got High Speed internet and regular old cable. Not wild
about Digital Cable since I'm happy with Tivo and I don't want yet
another set top box to have to deal with...
So, any horror stories about Charter Phone VOIP quality and service?
I have created a remastered Linux CD of Ubuntu 10.10 which contains a
selection of Amateur Radio software. Several of you were kind enough to
beta test this CD and offer feedback, for which I thank you.
This CD has been released and is now available for download from
The software selection is optimized for older x86 32-bit computers that
have at least a 1GHz processor and 256MB of memory, but naturally, if
you have more than that, the software will work just fine. It uses the
icewm window manager, and contains a web browser, graphical file
manager, text editor, and other related tools.
A short(!) list of the available Amateur Radio related software:
aa-analyzer.pl - used with RigExpert AA-xxx antenna analyzers
cqrlog - a full featured QSO logging program
fldigi - digital modes such as PSK31
flmsg - companion to fldigi, a simple forms management editor
for standard message formats
flrig - rig control
flwkey - modem program for the K1EL Winkeyer series
flwrap - companion to fldigi, file encapsulation / compression
Fl Moxgen - Moxon Rectangle antenna design program
gpredict - satellite tracking
grig - rig control software
hamlib - radio control library
ibp - HF beacons
pskmail - send email via PSK31
qrq - CW callsig practice
qsstv - SSTV
sunclock - track day/night line on Earth
svxlink - Echolink client (qtel)
TQSL - used with ARRL Logbook of the World
TQSL Cert - used with ARRL Logbook of the World
wsjt - weak signal communication
wspr - weak signal communication
xastir - APRS mapping
xcwcp - CW code practice
xdx - DX cluster TCP/IP client

This month, I'll be giving a talk on varios Init Systems for Linux,
including the traditional SysVinit and how it compares to Upstart,
OpenRC, and Systemd. I'll definately have a demo of at least Systemd.
