Tired of people yapping on cellphones? Give them the "Hush it Up!" card Created: 30 Jan 2006
Cell-Phone "Shushing" Gets Creative!

Now, here's a excellent idea for getting annoying cell-phone yappers to Shut Up!
...and at the same time protect them and their surroundings from DNA damage, nausea, headaches, dizzyness ..etc..etc.

Seen on "Wired" magazine:
"It's a familiar issue: You're stuck somewhere with a nearby stranger yapping on a cell phone, but you're unwilling to say anything about it. In December, designers Jim Coudal of Chicago's Coudal Partners and Aaron Draplin of Portland, Oregon-based Draplindustries Design drafted a solution that's been gaining buzz across the blogosphere.
Following an idea initiated by Coudal's wife, Heidi, Coudal and Draplin put together a series of free, downloadable cards, with messages like, "Just so you know: Everyone around you is being forced to listen to yer conversation" and "The world is a noisy place. You aren't helping things." Cards are attributed to the Society for HandHeld Hushing, or SHHH."

Go over here to get a PDF file for printing and pass them out to "Yappers" everywhere!

Hackers go at it again... Created: 7 Nov 2005
Hackers managed to mess up the forum but it has been fixed again from the backups.
The hackers alterations of forum headlines, and the immature language used, suggest that some bored kid was at work here.

Appologies people.
Please report any mysterious activity to me: henrik@solvation.net

News section updated Created: 18 Jul 2005
The news section has been updated.
Users can either search for keywords, read page by page or sort news by countries.
The search function is google-style and search-words are are highlighted in the results.

I've moved all the "old" news items over, and the journals that were used to list news will be removed after a few days.

Hope you all find it useful. If anyone has any suggestions or experiences any problems, let me know: henrik@solvation.net

News section gets an overhaul Created: 18 Jun 2005
The news section of mast-victims.org is getting an overhaul.
News will be grouped by countries and will have a google-style search facility with highlighting of search words in the results (see screenshot below).
I plan to have this done within a few days.

Hackers manage to bring www.mast-victims.org down Created: 30 May 2005
During the weekend, hackers managed to bring the mast-victims.org webserver down.
The security breach has been identified and closed.
No unauthorized access was gained by the hackers and no files have been deleted.
They only managed to make the web-server temporarily stop responding.

According to the servers logs, alot of attempts have been made to gain unauthorized access to the server, but none successful.
I'm currently tracking and reporting those hackers.
So far a hacker from France and another from a mobile phone company in China have been reported and hopefully we will see some action taken against them.

New translation function, increased image upload size & show-map function Created: 7 May 2005
Translation:
I decided to switch the translation function (found in the menu, left hand side) from babelfish.altavista.com to google language tools.
The benefits are that I can customize the google translator interface. Babelfish on the other hand, insisted on a bulky layout that did'nt fit the mast-victims overall layout.

Image uploads:
Maximum permitted filesize of uploading images is now increased to 5Mb pr. image. Regardless of size, images uploaded to journals will be automatically scaled down to 800x600 pixels to make them fit nicely on screen.

Map:
I'm working on map integration so that if a journal offers the location of a mast, then you can pop up a map of it. The map service used is: www.multimap.com which has pretty much all the world covered. More on that later.

This is an example of an entry with images Created: 3 May 2005
You can attach up to 5 images to your journal entries.
Upon creating a journal entry, you can browse your harddrive for image files and provide a description for each (though the description is optional).
When you click "Create entry", images are uploaded from your computer onto our server, thumbnails are created and large images are scaled to down to 800x600 pixels to allow them to fit nicely onto any screen. There is currently a file-size limit on uploading images : max 2Mb pr. image. I'm thinking of increasing this limit because most digital cameras produce images of around 3 - 4 Mb of size. More on that later.

Regards
- Henrik
