I just upgraded my server to the new 2.0.2 release of WordPress after seeing this story on digg.com:
A new version of the popular open source project WordPress fixes several security issues.
Here is a video of my first R/C flights. On my first landing I almost hit the cameraman, but all was good – only bent the landing gear a tiny bit which was easily bent back. The video turned out pretty good, and all was created/rendered using iLife ’06 on Mac OS X 10.4.3 (running on an AMD CPU…hmm…)
You can view the video here.
It should be finished soon and will be used by Delta County Schools.
The new Intel-based Macs will not run Windows XP, because current versions of Windows do not support the new EFI BIOS that the new Macs use.
x64 versions of Windows and Windows Vista do support EFI, unfortunately Vista won’t be out until the end of 2006 (maybe) and current Macs use 32-bit Intel processors, so they are unable to run the x64 version of Windows XP.
Here’s some photos from the 2006 International Consumer Electronics Show

I’m now trying to get started with R/C flying. I purchased a Hobbico Nexstar from the local hobby shop, and put it together. It didn’t take too long for the main assembly. The most difficult part has been trying to get the control surfaces all lined up with the correct throws. I’ll post pictures as soon as I get them.
Matt & I were able to fix the Z3 today. The intake boots were a bit difficult to remove at first, but since they were not going to be used again we ended up cutting them out. Installation wasn’t too bad either.
After about 50 miles the performance went up a bit, then the ‘Service Engine Soon’ light went out. I think because of the excess air the car was running too lean and knocking a bit, which caused the computer to pull back some timing. Now the engine is much smoother, plus I don’t get a whistle when at partial throttle from the vacuum leak.
I did discover a new problem though – the thermostat most likely needs to be replaced. It is stuck in the open position which causes the car to run too cold. I’m looking to see if this is covered by a recall or not…
At first, a real estate site seems kind of complex, but thanks to the folks over at Open-Realty, we were able to come up with a workable design and very functional site. There were a few bugs that we had to iron out, but after that the design went pretty smoothly.
Of course, this is all being hosted with my web hosting company.
