Re: 37 year old interface standard?
Using 5N2 will let you interface with Teletype machines :)
stty -F /dev/ttyS0 cs5 50 cstopb
is the magic, but other (electrical) interfacing may be required, See https://daduke.org/tty/

cant now , the new Blue and Yellow multi-coloured government have decided its better to push those extra flights to other regional airports such as Birmingham...
We'll see what comes of it all...Probably a runway extension at BHX, as while it has the spare capacity, IIRC its not as long as would be ideal for some of today's larger jets...
Shesh. From Moon Ship, To LEO Taxi, To CRV for ISS. Quite a come down.
It wasn't THAT many years ago, X-38 was to be a test bed to develop a CRV. X-38 had small wings, it will be interesting to see if Orion suddenly grows wings now!
If this "New Orion" gets built, its going to be nothing like was originally planned.
As an aside, I quite liked the X-38. I thought follow on developments may well have had other uses (LEO Taxi, Mars entry vehicle etc)
Jeeez, here we go again.
DNS is not:
A Routing Protocol. Use BGP and Anycasting instead. Or even multi-casting over in the IPv6 world. Far better idea, and using the right tool for the right job.
A Security Platform. Use A Firewall!
The Phone directory. Don't screw with it
WTF would *any* Webserver/FTP Server allow execute rights on *any* uploaded code ?
From reading the comments, this is what happens if you make your cgi-bin directory globally writable and executable ?
There was a reason why FTP upload directories had write, but no read or execute permissions for anon users
Oh dear lord, I actually don't know where to begin. I'm in agreement with AC above.Let Europe come into line with us.
*Espesially* those countries who happen to be between meridians 7°30'W and 7°30'E, and have the Greenwich Meridian running through them who see fit to be +1 hour from GMT. Do I smell garlic ?:) Are they still upset that "We British" ended up defining the standard time, and not them ?
Now, less nationalistically, if it's such a big deal in the city to be aligned with Europe, surely they could just start an hour earlier ? Yes Yes, they'd have to get up earlier, but they could finish an hour earlier as well, boo hoo how much do they get paid ? Oh, aligning with Europe not *THAT* important now ?
As for the UK being on "Portugese Time", has this "99% Scots" Historian never heard of Greenwich ? Or GMT ? Some Historian!
Now, as for me, I'd abandon this "Daylight Savings Time" nonsense, and keep us on GMT all year round. Then again, I'd make the French use GMT. And the Belgians. And the Netherlands. And the Spanish
As AC said, the Americans handle multiple timezones just fine. You often find the West Coast up early, and finish although that also has to do with the climate it some areas.
Thank Omega, and Rassilon this guy aint a timelord!
Pure geographical meridian based time for all! Now, more importantly, we just need a TARDIS icon
At least two of the 4 satellites "dropped off" by the Shuttle carry beacons only, rather than transponders. A lot of these satellites just "use" Amateur Radio frequencies and beacon their data and telemetry down, rather than serve as a transponder that you can communicate thru
There aren't actually all that many Amateur Radio *transponder* (or FM repeater) satellites up there and operational these days: AO-7, AO-51, FO-29, and VO-52 come to mind. Most are in Low Earth Orbit, thus have fairly short passes, and relatively small footprints (AO-7 being the exception)
To be honest, unless some micro propulsion could be added to one of these tubesats to raise the orbit, and keep it in space more than "a few weeks", I don't see that much use for them from an Amateur Radio perspective.
