Thank you for that heads up!

I personally would also encourage all users to use mumble, so you can recognize jomos voice.
He really is a nice person and there is no need to fear talking to him, and it makes things much more easy than typing.

X-mas wishes and reality!!
I hope you all had some wonderful Xmas time and got all the presents you prayed for.

Just a little hint for ALL that did not get the highly wished Mic + Loudspeaker for using MUMBLE:
* I guess just about all FGFS-users do have a HANDY
* You can use that by installing the ChargeFree mumble on your Handy
* So you do not need to touch Your PC to use mumble - just use it from your HANDY!
I admit: Using mumble on handy is a little more complicated (using hands for keyboard plus handy) - but it works fine!
And ask anybody: It is much more fun than typing- not only for the poor/overloaded ATCs !!!

what, may i ask, is a "handy"? the only things i know of ever called that are walkie-talkies and i don't know of any walkie-talkies that you can load arbitrary programs on...

Well: if a German "handy" is in English a "Walkie-Talkie" (or as the dictionary says "mobile phone") --> I guess that is not a big problem!

But I guess it would be a real big problem if e.g. a "SAMSUNG Walkie-Talkie" would not accept the same free applications as a "German SAMSUNG Handy ".

Pls check that - otherwise pls give me an idea how we can solve that worldwide for 100's of languages .

i thank you all for explaining to me what was meant by the use of the term "handy" to mean "mobile phone"... that was a new one...

FWIW: these (images below) are walkie-talkies... they are aka handie-talkie aka HT... i'm pretty sure this is where the short form "handy/handie" originates from... basically, any hand held two-way radio that operates off of batteries and broadcasts at up to 4 watts (i think)... think about military/police hand held radios, hand held CB radios, and hand held shortwave radios and especially the two-way traffic aspect of them ;)
