World Cup Stations I’ve Worked

With only 1 hour to go, I have decided to call it a day. I still have 8 stations to work, but I had fun. I have worked more Germans during this period than previously in my whole log, so not totally disappointed. Wonder what’s next, or maybe I need a break from Contest, Special Event Stations, etc.

I have also learnt I like the 20m band and am using it more nowadays than 2m.

Chip and Pin

Got my new bank card today. Reading through the pamphlet the send with the card I got to thinking why with all the new technology involved with Chip and Pin am I still limited to a 4-digit pin?

I would rather have a longer pin that would be harder for other people to guess.

Talking of pins, I think maybe time for me to change my pin.

Wow, what a treat me blogging twice in one day!

The Mercury Is Too High

It’s that time of year again when I prefer being at work during the day, as the sun is shining too much and the temperature is too high.

Thankfully at the office where I work the Public areas are Air-Conditioned. If I have to work in back of office although not air-conditioned, there is enough fans that we could start a tornado in the room.

I feel I should say sorry to (any) readers of my blog as I am terrible at updating, but please remember my other site at 2E0TZO.co.uk which is usually updated with any Amateur (Ham) Radio stuff I do.

Moved Hosts

While I think about it, I have moved Gadget17 (hopefully without any problems) to a new host with which I am now paying for server space.

Now, when you pick your jaw of the floor at me spending money on hosting, I should say I am now with DreamHosts.

I will be sorting a special Promo code for readers to save money on hosting shortly with BIG savings.
