Leap Second Party.. Postponed

From: Mike Harrison 
------------------------------------------------------
On my calendar is a “Leap Second Party” at our house tomorrow (Tuesday) night. It’s been cancelled. sorry Linus. 
I’m going to be off-planet tomorrow night, and the kitchen is in the midst of an upgrade. so it can’t happen there. 

However, if anyone wants to call a Leap Second party anywhere else, I’ll be there in spirit…

I hereby abdicate my throne for Leap Second day. On the good news, I’m teaching Linux to aliens (ok, not exactly aliens, but they don’t speak English)..

txt parse challenge (already awarded trophy to Dan)

From: Dave Brockman 
------------------------------------------------------
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

So I spent part of the weekend playing with this little gem, plus some
additional scripting to delete and move some files, and I haven't seen
Dan throw us a perl 1liner in a day or two, so I thought I'd invite the
rest of the list to share their solutions.  I always enjoy seeing the
different ways the list deals with text parsing.  Come one, come all,
any language, any shell.  Except Dan, who is restricted to perl and 22
characters.  (# randomly pulled out of my arse, feel free to ignore it).

About to graduate

From: Jared Hamilton 
------------------------------------------------------
Hey Chugalug, I'm anticipating graduation this August and I'm beginning to 
apply for jobs. Anyone have any leads as far as good companies I can look at or 
job openings in the Chattanooga area? 

Other than my degree from Lee (Information Systems B.S.), my experience is 
mainly  an internship at Life Care here in Cleveland and tinkering at home with 
*nix. I've got a resume if any of you kind folks would want to see it.

CQD all linux and OSX hams- RE: Winlink

From: Rod-Lists 
------------------------------------------------------
I've taken a deep dive into digital Emcomm world last few weeks.
Found FLdigi and I am impressed, however TEMA dictates ACS and ARES use winlink when dealing with the state.
I've looked at the video at the winlink site which leaves as many questions as answers.
Such as what protocol are they using for "Robust" packet.

So I'm hoping some of the Chugalug hams may have some experience in interfacing OSX or Linux machines with the winlink network and help me out.
I am looking for options other than run RMS express in WINE.

I realize part of the issue is that winlink, while now updated, was born in the XP world and had to provide functionality not present in XP.
Part of the issue peeling away what we already have in OSX and linux. Such as telnet. We got that covered. 
It doesn't help that Winlink crowd have their own terms and names for various functions.
I have found the WINmor spec. Haven't found a linux or fldigi implementation yet.
