Red and Green


This will be a very short post. And only for the blog. I have a sweet spot (call it idiosyncrasy) for stationery. I mean, some people do heroin, some do alcohol, some do Oprah. I am addicted to stationery. Put me in a stationery shop — you can leave me there all day (give or take), depending on the size and amount of stuff inside. And there are some very good (read “well stocked”) shops here in Bucharest because many people do arts.

I mean, what could be more pleasing than creating something beautifully expressive with your own hands ? Ha ? Well, I am not creating anything (yet) but I love pens and stuff. So I collect and use them, maybe one day I will explore some alternative ways of expressing myself…

Versions for my both platforms exist, Win 7.0 and Mac. […]

144.8 Mhz TX for APRS (3)

This is a quick update post. The road I took with this little project is slowly getting to a dead end due to what it seems to be a lack of available crystals for 144.8 (like 48.26 or 28.96 MHz, for using the third or fifth harmonic). I believe that, currently, all APRS modules are […]
