I have only dabbled in programing, but when I did I was careful to
make sure my version numbers indicated any change to the source.  It
was simply a note to self so that I could remember where I left off.

Another cool feature TNOS had was the TNOS learning center.  Is that
code portable?

Is it possible for JNOS to use the /dev/dsp (sound device) directly to
do some HF Packet modes (like winmor).  That would awesome.  I want to
play with HF packet with JNOS, but I have not the bucks for an HF TNC
or the desire to mess with AGWPE on an old windows 98 install.

It is too bad the Tomas Sailor stuff seems to be a bit on the stale
side for Linux.  It looks like no development has occurred for a

73's de KQ6UP
