Thanks Per and Rein. Will try to catch that today. I have some other comments on the 1_1, but it remains to be seen if these behaviors are in the 2nd version: (1) When i first start up PSKmail, and send a ping, the ping doesn't have my callsign in it. No problem, since the server responds to the ping. But a half hour later, my pings have my callsign in them. Is this the desired behavior? (2) When i first start up PSKmail, and punch the POS button, it sends my lat & long -- without my callsign!! Which is possibly of no use. A half hour later, after <i don't know what event>, punching the POS button sends a valid aprs position report, which gets acknowledged by the server if conditions are good. (3) Something that has happened several times now with my attempted connects to the VE7SUN server: the connect goes poorly, probably because of bad conditions. But then one station or the other (the server or me) thinks it's connected when it isn't, and after a short time the server stops responding to ANYTHING i do, including pings and POS. Then a day (night) later the server still doesn't respond to me at all. It could be conditions, but in at least two cases ve7cus emailed me that the server had had a hiccup. What i suspect is that, when the server gets some unexpected command, the program crashes or "gets confused." (4) Last Friday when i tried to connect to wb6mlc in tty mode, his station immediately sent me 4 ~QUIT commands, one right after the other. From now on, i'm only going to "connect" to a server. The TTY mode, without a connect, is all i'm going to try with another client station. Again, these comments are for the 1_1 release. Any comments appreciated. I will cc: this to the pskmail list. I will report on the new LiveCD as soon as i use it. Thank you, authors, for all your work on this. Orrin WN1Z in Calif.
