Talk:Main Page

From Carc-wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

This is where we discuss what we want on the Main Page. Each page on the site has a 'discussion' option. We can make suggestions, ask questions, cite sources, express opinions, etc.

If you wanna talk 'bout the main page - click the appropriate tab near the top there. In the default skin, it's labelled 'Discussion' and is just to the right of the 'Page' tab.

Remember, each page on the site has it's own discussion page.

Of course, you'll have to be logged in first.

Image sizes

Be VERY careful with image sizes!! Those of us with widescreen monitors - not such an issue. It seems that many hams are struggling to get an 1024 x 768 display. At the least, we should expect the majority to have 1024 X 768 or smaller. Setting a pic at 500 px wide will take about half to over half the screen. Have to have room for the menu and side bars too.

Sign your comments and discussions

Please!! You can easily "sign" your comments and discussions here by using 4 tildes in a row. A tilde is the horizontal wavey line, usually the upper case character on the key to the left of number 'one' - very top left corner of the keyboard. Look like this: "~" KA7O 10:38, 23 January 2012 (MST)


Is that link (visible in Firefox as an enigmatic link with no title at top-left of page), the entry into a h0neyp0t system? AE7EC 03:54, 10 November 2010 (MST)

Yup, that's the honeypot script. You can click it and read some - not too informative, but it's safe. Dungeon Admin 21:10, 10 November 2010 (MST)

Want a tarbaby script for it that will lock up single-thread bots for hours, while only spending ~ a uSec per min of CPU? AE7EC (talk) 02:34, 20 July 2014 (MDT)

  No, thanks. Instead harvesters caught here are reported to a central database and shared amongst many servers and lists. 
  In fact, some of the lists you use pull from these honeypots. 
  However, due to other countermeasures in place, I don't get many hits these days. Dungeon Admin (talk)

Thanks for the Christmas Eve video Warren! Didn't want to lose it, so here's a copy. {{#ev:youtube|ailFghtEKsc|500|right|A Ham's Night Before Christmas, de KN4AQ!}} KA7O 22:15, 28 December 2010 (MST)
