Harry,No big deal. I was just waxing nostalgic time in the suck. Also wanted to share with you a most excellent push news aggregator. Very world wide up to date news. I have a lot of bells and whistles on my machine blocking this and that so sometimes I have to refresh it by clicking on BREAKING NEWS. Excellent search features as well.http://www.breakingnews.comGreen Weenie E5
I'm still bewildered as to where it went. I didn't delete the email, as it was not in the trash. Nor was it still in the inbox. It did not show up in the published comments and when I released that batch awaiting moderation, there were none I needed to delete. It was interesting and I regret others didn't get to read it.I'm not entirely sure what the news program you mentioned actually does. I read newspapers on line, as well as the web pages of the news shows, and a few magazines like Forbes. I know Google has a news page that you can modify to capture only specific subjects, and I'm assuming that's what the program you mentioned does?
I got you. It's like the google thing except it pops up on your screen. I think my son has something like that on his computer to do with his work.I appreciate your explaining it to me. I am not really that good with computers. I can make my blog work, most of the time, and I can use email and a word processor, and look at web pages, but that's it.My computer is not that old, but it was the cheapest one they had at the computer shop, which tells you a lot about how good my equipment is.
OMG, that teletype printout brings back memories. We use to make paper tapes of that on the and run it through the teletype for testing and fun. Of we would sometimes change the wording.Anyway we know the email has not been lost or destroyed, the truth is out there.
Yeah, way back when,most outfits had either a point to point, or a net using TTY. We encrypted the link with the KW 7 Orestes. Unbeknownst to us, the Russians were getting the key cards from a traitor, and decrypting our traffic as quickly as we were. You probably know about that episode since you were Navy.I'm mystified. I read the email, switched windows to the blog, released comments awaiting moderation, and it just disappeared. Where are Mulder and Scilly when you need them?
We run tapes like that on the Iowa to check out the TTY's after our "TTY Guru" goes through them.I would NOT want to be in the Comm Center when all 15 TTY's are hammering away!
When I was around command posts, the UGC-6 was the field teletype of choice. It was pretty large for field gear, and it made a racket that was hard to talk over. That's why they were usually in the pack of the command post, or even in a little CP tent inside the wire but out of the larger tent.
