Was wondering about the amount of Novak movies in TCM these days, but now I get it. Interesting interview to one of my favourites, together with Ingrid Bergman and Lauren Bacall.
Got to talk to my friend Steve, in the US. Mississippi, blues, country, the Carters...

I read @yarmo's toot about github so I thought of migrating a small tool I'm doing ham radio related to download digital contacts from radioid.net to GitLab. It's premature as f* but it works in my Anytone 878 and I get rid of those names in all caps that made me cry a bit.
