What’s Happening With The Weather ???

Blahhh… Well what is happening with the weather at late ??? We have gone from nice mild days to scorching heat! (I really feel for the people interstate!) It’s currently 30 degrees centigrade here… but Melbourne & Adelaide are expecting temperatures in the high 30’s to low 40’s

I’d much rather be here…

SOLA-330 UPS Serial Cable Solved !!!

I received an email from Eaton today informing me of the pin-out used for this UPS !!! So now I have it all setup using NUT to control the server in the event of a power outage!

Wanted !!! Serial Pin-out for SOLA-330 UPS

As I have recently posted on this blog I have been given a SOLA-330 UPS. Unfortunately I do not have the serial cable to be able to setup my server to power down before the UPS runs out of battery (to then power back on when the mains returns!) So this is a plea to anybody that has a SOLA-330 model UPS that is either not using the serial cable or is prepared to loan one to me (so I can work out the Pin-Out) I would be very thankful !!!

New (old) UPS on Server!

I received a generous donation of a SOLA-330 UPS yesterday! (Thanks Matt)  this has been deployed and is now in-line with my Server,  DSL & Switch.  So now those pesky outages won’t cause unnecessary downtime!

Now I just need to get the pin-out for the serial interface to the UPS so I can configure the server to shutdown if the power is out for longer time than the UPS can provide!

Moin wiki has been removed!

I was making a comparison between Mediawiki & Moin. I’ve decided to used Mediawiki for the task! so I have removed Moin from my server… so this URL is now now longer valid…

If you have bookmarked this URL then please delete it! 😀

Awstats vs Webalizer!

I have just installed Awstats. This is another utility to monitor your website stats. I was using webalizer, but this doesn’t go into the depth of analysing that awstats does! so see for yourself…

http://vk7hse.org/(update: I have removed webalizer!)

.pl(update: I have since restricted access to my local LAN!)

I will remove webalizer at the end of the month, just so I can compare the two applications, but so far awstats is lookinng to be the better choice! what do you think ???

(update: webalizer was removed and I no longer use it)

TinyTrak4 Wiki

I’m attempting to put together a Wiki for the Byonics TinyTrak4 packet tracker.  Now the concept behind a wiki is great but learning the “lingo” has been interesting! but I’m slowly getting there! Please look at the following URL to access…

http://www.vk7hse.org/wiki/

I’d appreciate any feedback and or additions.

TinyTrak4D

UPDATE: the gallery plug in was removed so images are no longer available

Here are some photos of my TinyTrak4D. As you can see the case size is rather large compared to it’s contents! However, I’m planning on placing a small switch-mode power supply in there so that I then have the option to either use mains power or portable DC. The current firmware I’m testing is the TinyTrak4D Alpha Code 0.4 This gives the functionality of a Tracker, KISS TNC & Digipeater!
