Telnet and Internet Explorer

I have had a couple of people contact me about this issue recently. Microsoft in their wisdom have decided that Internet Explorer 7 and 8 will not support the telnet protocol. If you are using IE7 or IE8 the chances are you will not be able to connect to the cluster using the links at the side. You may get a message saying that your browser cannot find the page. If you get this, use another browser such as Firefox or Google Chrome. You can get these and many more useful tools at http://www.filehippo.com

Please be aware that Vista does not natively support telnet either. However, you can add a telnet client such as putty which is very good.

Hi all,
I will be at the Blackpool Rally tomorrow (Sunday 5th April) if anyone wants to say hello. I am on the Sands Contest Group table with my K2 and K3. We should also have a K1 and a T1 tuner on display.

I hope to see you there.

Sorry all about the forums. If you had been trying to get in recently. Entirely my fault, they had been left in Maintenance mode but are now back up and running.

Apologies

MixW web connect

Hi all. If you or someone you know connects to the cluster using MixW will you please turn off the web connect. It is on at default and I am currently seeing the web connects spamming my logins at the rate of 1 every 5 seconds.

Many thanks

Ian

Apologies for the downtime

Hi all,
I sincerely apologise for the downtime today. This was due to a fault on my line affecting the broadband. Hopefully there will be no more interruptions now.

Many thanks

DXPeditions and Courtesy!

What is happening to our hobby?  Every dxpedition we get now seems to be complained about, the operators called every name there is and frequencies abused by so called amateurs!  I can see a time shortly where people will stop doing dxpeditions.  They often stump up thousands of pounds of their own money as well as using up valuable holidays to activate rare and exotic places so we can claim them for IOTA or DXCC and all amateurs seem to do is complain!

Please think about the guys out there.  They are doing their best, often in difficult circumstances.  Give them some courtesy and respect please.
