    Just something a little different to get people talking. We're pretty much all into BBSing, and also radio of some form, whether that be ham, CB, SWL, or whatever. But outside of those areas, what are your other interests? Do we have any musicians here? Or artists? Or other interesting pastimes?

    As for myself, my big one outside of the tech area is sport. I'm a track sprinter, though I also do other events, and recently completed a decathlon. This weekend, I'm in Ballarat for a 3 day meet, where so far, I've won bronze in the triple jump and 100 metres, and silver in the 400m. Got the 200m and relays coming up today.

    I also compete in another sport, which is unique to this part of the world (only 2 states in Australia - Victoria and Western Australia!). These are our fire brigade competitions, which are a series of races using mostly traditional mid 1800s firefighting equipment (though we do have a couple of events that use a modern fire engine). This is very physical, requiring speed and power, and is in fact the reason I took up the track a few years ago, to get faster.

    Anyway, over to you. :)

    Hi,

    I'm not sure if I should reply to this yet, as it's only Saturday here... ;)

    Well, compared to your pastimes, I'm pretty boring... :)

    I do play the saxophone. Over the years, I've played the alto, tenor and baritone sax, but the alto sax is the one I like the best.

    I am also teaching myself how to program, as some of you already know. I
    think it keeps the mind active. :)

    I have also been doing some writing. Right now, I have a handful of short stories written, and currently working on a novel. Nothing has been published yet, but I've been toying with the idea of self-publishing a short story collection on Amazon.

    Other than that, we do make our own beer, wine, cheese, soap, and bratwurst. They are always so much better than store bought.

    Just last August, I completed my Master's Degree in management. I had been a full-time student for the last six years, along with everything else. In
    June, I will be going to Washington DC, for my graduation ceremony.

    I also enjoy spending time with friends and family, although with everything else, there's never enough time.

But outside of those areas, what are your other interests? Do we V>have any musicians here? Or artists? Or other interesting pastimes?

    Anyway, over to you. :)

    My other hobby is square dancing...which is called such because of the
    basic geometric formations, fractional parts of moves, etc. -- and not necessarily a lifestyle. A related field, round dancing, is similar to
    ballroom dancing, but that never did appeal to me.

    In the U.S., the National Square Dance Convention, which is held the
    last Saturday in June...including the Friday, Thursday, and Wednesday
    before that...usually means it's on the same weekend as ARRL Field Day. Ironically, I've run into several "dancing hams".

    We'd have our HT's with us, and pick a simplex frequency on where to
    dance, eat, shop, sightsee, etc. And, it was a good thing I had it at
    the 1997 Convention in Orlando, Florida. The last night of the
    convention, the security guard at the hotel physically assaulted our
    shuttle bus driver, and I used ham radio (in a pouring thunderstorm with intense lightning) to call for help. When the people said "You saved his life!", I replied "This is what amateur radio operators prepare for -- emergency communications". The case actually went to trial just after
    Easter Weekend in 1998, and the State Of Florida flew me down there and
    back to testify...it was not my idea of a Florida Vacation.

    Cool. Square dancing sounds like a lot of fun. A couple of hams I knew in my younger days, who were around my age were heavily into square dancing too.

    Haha, it was Sunday when I posted it. :) Had just woken up on the last day of my 3 day track meet, and doing what I knew would be my last BBS mail session for 12 hours. :)

    here... ;)

    Well, compared to your pastimes, I'm pretty boring... :)

    I don't know about that!

    I do play the saxophone. Over the years, I've played the alto, tenor

    Well, I did spect there were musicians among us (I'm definitely not one :( ).

    Other than that, we do make our own beer, wine, cheese, soap, and bratwurst. They are always so much better than store bought.

    Hardly boring at all, that's a broad range of interests. :) I would like to write a book, possibly an autobiography, because of some unusual aspects in my life, but I have to be in the right state of mind to write anything more than a blog post.

    Just last August, I completed my Master's Degree in management. I had
    been a full-time student for the last six years, along with everything else. In June, I will be going to Washington DC, for my graduation ceremony.

    Congratulations. :)

    3 hours of dancing is equivalent to 6 miles of walking.

    Of course, when you go out afterwards, and order a banana hot fudge

    One local group goes to the area Subway Restaurant for food and

    I'd say easily!

    For me, the energy calculations are more complex, because at the intensity of a sprint, the "afterburn effect" significantly increases total calorie consumption for up to 24 hours after the exercise.

    I am happy to say I am walking with out the walker or cane now , tech is the only think keeping my brain working ... I have lots lots and lots and lots ,
    I am sure its still in there , but I cant find it ...

    so make your brain work I got my advance ticket in Canadian Ham radio , I
    hold my tickets for fireworks and Pyro ( special effects) and I am trying to get my old apple running

    I wish you the best and that just because you dont think you can do something does not mean you should not try , if it take you twice as long , the next

    Nice. :) This time of year, there is a high risk of fireworks cancelled because of high fire risk.

    this lets you play with different products , you have to be a sr pyro with indorsments to play with stuff like det cord , but you cant use fireworks ,

    Ahh, OK. I have no idea how it works here, never looked into it. Only pyro thing I can claim is occasionally getting to be a pyromaniac legally - doing controlled fuel reduction burns before the fire season for people. Later in the season, I'm putting the fires out. :)

    here as well...as they did one year.

    Here, there's 2 levels. Firstly, there is the fire danger period (FDP). This is the time of year, when it is considered fires are most likely to start, and restrictions are applied - the most well known one is no burning off without a permit. Breaking that law can ead to a big fine or even 12 months jail. However, this generally doesn't affect fireworks displays, provided appropriate safety measures are taken - the area is suitably cleared, a supply of water is available, etc. The duration of the FDP depends on the exact local government area, but around here, it typically runs from late November or the first Monday in December until mid March to sometime in April.

    However, on days when the fire danger is particularly high, due to weather conditions forecast, a Total Fire Ban (TFB) is declared, which basically means no fires outside, some other high risk activities are also prohibited, and it is highly recommended anything else high risk be put off until another day. On these days, fireworks displays are usually cancelled. TFB days can and have been declared outside of the FDP, though the majority are declared during the FDP.

    The Arkansas Forestry Commission issues the Fire Danger Status map

    bans". I believe that there is a deal, where for every fire company that
    is dispatched to fight a fire, that is determined to have started on
    your property, you have to pay a hefty fine...I think it's well over
    $1000 per company, and it may be more.

    Our wettest months of the year are usually March through May, when we

    They usually issue a Fire Weather Watch, if there's a potential for a

    Haha, our fire danger ratings are:

    Low/Moderate
    High
    Very High
    Severe
    Extreme
    Code Red (or in other words, off the charts).

    We don't even make much of a fuss until it gets to severe, that's the usual threshold for TBF declarations.

    May - October are the wettest time of year here, and it's usually lots of little bits of rainfall.

    They usually issue a Fire Weather Watch, if there's a potential for a Red Flag Warning to be issued. The criteria is rainfall deficiency, low

    Here, a Red Flag Warning is never seen by the public, that's a fireground warning that important safety information is being transmitted and must be acknowledged (typical for things like changes in weather conditions that can affect fire behaviour).

    relative humidity, and gusty winds, both at the surface and aloft,
    which transport down to the surface.

    We use a scale called the Macarthur Fire Danger Index, which takes into account temperature, humidity, wind speed, as well as recent rainfall patterns (drought index). I have ben trained in calculating the FDI in the firld.

    It's a well known Linux utility that analyses logfiles and adds IPs where failed login attempts come from (according to set criteria) to the system's firewall. Understandable you haven't heard of it, since you run Windows.

    However, newer versions of Synchronet have similar capabilities natively.

    I'm running Windows...I may be wrong, but thought I was told that

    If I see an IP that repeatedly connects with no response...or an IP

    Plus, the SSH deals and bots were tying up the nodes where no one else

    ;)

    We each have our opinions ... so do not let my bubbling stop you ;)
    I just get massive stomach cramps when I think that somebody is willing to connect some unencrypted login means to the public internet of 2018 ...

    fail2ban is a simple utility that monitors logs, and puts offending
    IPs into the firewall (ban) for a certain amount of time.
    I'm running Windows...I may be wrong, but thought I was told that fail2ban is for Linux.

    It is a pretty generic script.
    It parses text logfiles for certain regular expressions, and fires off a command when it triggers.
    You can optionally execute a second command a specified time later.
    (Usually used to ban and unban IPs from the firewall.)

    So it will work on most operating systems.
    Windows is indeed not one of them where it will work, so it is not useful for you, sadly.

    If I see an IP that repeatedly connects with no response...or an IP
    that gets a TEMPORARY BAN on it (unless it's a user who forgot their password), that IP goes permanently into the IP deal.

    In todays Internet (where IPv6 is still not the dominant protocol) many people have dynamic IPs.
    Permanently banning an IP, because it misbehaved once is a bit too strict for me.

    Plus, the SSH deals and bots were tying up the nodes where no one
    else could connect.

    You have 65535 ports available.
    They can tie up many ports without you even noticing. (Unless you are using faulty software with memory leaks or artificial limitations on the SSH sessions. But in that case simply stop using faulty software!)
    They are constantly connecting to me SSH port as well, so what, as long as they
    do not have your password, and your password is sufficiently complex that they
    cannot guess or brute force it, then what is the harm?
