Last month I blogged about those bootable Knoppix thumb drives containing files of preparedness info.
Greylocke, who’s now making the drives (from unopened, buyer-supplied USB sticks), asked me to post a reminder.
Seems only a handful of people have so far taken him up on the offer. And it is for a limited time, so if you’re interested, check the instructions, then go for it.
He’s hoping somebody else will step up to take the project over from where it was left when his colleague Scott died. He also writes: “I am hoping to bring some more capability to the project by finding someone to write an app for android phones so they can be used as a packet ham radio station with a ht like the baofeng uv5r. That way you can have somewhat secure digital comma with the least amount of gear just a ht a cell phone and a cable to connect the two. Maybe a fold up twinlead j-pole to increase the range.”
Um … if you understand what he just said (and don’t ask me!) and you’re interested, please use the link above to get in touch with him.
Even if all that was as Greek to you as it was to me, the bootable drive with survival files is still a good thing to have. And believe me, it doesn’t require much technical knowhow to use.
