Is TRK still alive?
Thursday, April 10, 2014
...or how the question was asked yesterday: "Is TRK dead? or are you?"

Well, no, not really. But I've been very busy with my daytime job and family expansion lately. But some work has been done, changes have been committed. People following it a bit know that issue tracking has been setup at bitbucket and can follow progress there and report bugs in a proper way instead of through the forum (which unfortunately I've been neglecting lately, partly because people tend to ask the same 100 ...

DNS problems resolved
Wednesday, August 28, 2013
Finally, after much annoyances with my registrar IN, I changed over the domain name trinityhome.org to Easyhost. The problem with IN was that they failed to recognise there was a problem with updating the nameserver records. This resulted in only 1 nameserver being accessible, even more the one behind the most unreliable and slow link. Anyway, I 've added a 3rd nameserver, records are ok at the toplevel as well as my own DNS's, so you should see no more outages by a DNS failure anymore. Oh ... Read more
Server down (for quite a while)
Tuesday, July 2, 2013
Sorry people for all of you who tried to reach trinityhome.org the last 2 days (July 1 and 2). The server itself was not down actually, it was the whole datacenter. Apparently the fibre optic cables had been cut in the street and it took a while to locate where. The cables have been mended and we're back. Next time I'll make offsite backups and bring an alternative server online. Read more
The Ocean Cleanup
Sunday, April 7, 2013
Trinity Rescue Kit just donated 500$ of your donations to the Ocean Cleanup project [1], which aims on cleaning up the ocean of ALL plastic within 5 years and make some money of it doing so. I believe science with an economical benefit is the ONLY solution to saving the planet and mankind. The idea you had about cleaning up the ocean from plastic debris with large booms is basically what I've been thinking about as well for years. I'm just not an engineer who could work out such an idea. ... Read more
TRK development resumed and shared
Saturday, July 28, 2012
It 's been a while again since you heard some news about TRK, but it's back. Development has resumed and this time I will try to make it more structured and collaborative. Therefore I did a good cleanup of unneeded files, stripped all binaries and libraries, removed the dead and buried Trinity Remote Support Pack and upgraded the kernel to the latest 3.4.6.

Next, I published everything on bitbucket [1]as a Git repository (binaries included). And it's open for everyone to fork, clone, ... Read more
Thank you spambots
Wednesday, December 28, 2011
Thank you spambots, you made me upgrade my old and worn out forum. You naughty naughty spammers.

Folks, for those who have made a post on the TRK forum between December 21 and now, December 28: it's gone, I 'm sorry. I had to restore a backup since the forum was so sickened by spambots who had posted about 70.000 topics, whereas up to then there were only about 5.000 over the course of 8 years.

But hey: here 's an out-of-the-box phpBB3 for you. It will prbobaly get some alterations and ... Read more
TRK 'virusscan' AV engine locations AGAIN updated
Thursday, November 3, 2011
Yes, yes, everyone keeps changing their AV engine download location and I have to follow them. I thought many of them had broken permanently, but a vigilant TRK user directed me to all new working download locations of the antivirus soft.
Here ' s a status update:
-BitDefender failed to properly install. This alternate version installs and runs alright. Make sure you have enough RAM or run 'getswap [1]' first in a machine with 512Mb or less
-F-prot download location was broken. A new ... Read more

TRK 'virusscan' AV engine locations updated
Tuesday, September 20, 2011
Yesterday I did a checkup on TRK and found out a few virusscan antivirus-engine links had broken or were at newer versions.
As TRK 'virusscan' users may know, 'virusscan' is a wrapper script that fetches external AV engines from the internet and uses a pointer where to find them from a url which it gets on a secure connection to trinityhome.org
Here 's the status of the 5 AV engines integrated in TRK 'virusscan':

-ClamAV: updated from 0.97.1 to 0.97.2. Update will happen automatically ... Read more
