Using wget to save dr.jack files without cookies by [email protected]
Greetings, I used to have a batch file set up on a previous computer which would download 6 images of soaring data each day from dr.jack's site. This worked but used the cookie info within wget to get access to future day data. My new computer is not playing nicely with cookies so I tried to use...

What 'hit count' means by son_of_flubber
Every time I open a thread to make a post, or read newly added posts, the 'hit count' is incremented by one. Say a thread continued for 10 days and new posts were made every day. If I opened the thread to read the new posts once a day, the hit count would be incremented by 10. Say there were...

New Gliderport by [email protected]
Doris and I have purchased a very desirable piece of land at the base of the ridge just south of Bluefield W.Virginia.

Stick grip loose - help how do I attach it properly? by Johan Pretorius
Hi all, Our club has a Single Astir CS Jeans - and the stick grip is getting looser by the day. What is the right way to attach it? I could use superglue, but then it's impossible to remove it ever again, e.g. to work on the PTT cable. Any ideas? Regards, Johan
