Hi all,

I have two new things to report....

I released a new version of WinQuake. You can download it from here The release number is 2.8.6 with a
release date of 01/19/2002. This release fixes a problem I and others have
notices regarding some of the USGS network reports not loading correctly. It
turns out that they changed servers and the new servers require a HTTP 1.1
Get command. WinQuake was issuing a HTTP 1.0 Get command. It took awhile to
figure out that one....

I found some code on the net that can change the printing mode to landscape.
This code is now part of WinQuake. The Print Margins Settings dialog box has
been changed to Printer Setting. In this dialog box you can set the print
margins and set the color or b/w and landscape or portrait modes. Also new
is support for my new WinSDR program. This feature allows WinSDR to open an
event file or display a directory listing after doing a replay.

I created two setup programs for WinQuake. One is the full release. The
setup file winqk286.exe should be downloaded if you are installing WinQuake
for the first time. The file winqk286exeonly.exe can be downloaded if you
already have WinQuake installed on your system. If you use the exe only file
make sure you select the same directory or folder containing your current
copy of WinQuake.

Seimicity Images-
You may have noticed a new feature on my main web page (
I now display a near real-time GIF image of local seismicity. The image on
the main page is the N-S channel of the strong motion FBA-23 sensor I am
monitoring (channel LCNH). The image shows the last 1 1/2 hours worth of
data. Each line is 5 minutes long and the image is updated every 5 minutes.
One other image can be found on this page This page shows the last
24 hours worth of data from the low frequency port of my SG sensor.

Right now the GIF image creation process in WinSDR is very crude. Once I add
a few more features I would like to create a web page showing GIF images
from other PSN stations. Something like this page would be neat.....
