    And BTW, don't forget to take off your EAA, Vans, Zenith, or whatever aviation-themed T-shirt before you wander in to these places on the weekend. You say "off road vehicle" and they say "yeah right...

    I feel like a Luddite for disagreeing with you Ron, but I just don't see this happening. It's not that the technology isn't there; the problem is that the efficiency isn't there. It's the old flying...

    Is that the same baby my flight instructor kept seeing on the runway while I was trying to land? It's still around? I guess I bounced over it.

    As an engineer, I design with PPTCs regularly. If you use them in an aircraft, do read the data sheet carefully. In particular they have some characteristics you have to keep in mind. One is that...

    Preaching to the choir :) Not sure why my personal build-log website composed entirely of static pages needs an SSL certificate, but apparently it does or I'm flagged as a miscreant.

    Are you running a developer version of Chrome? For better or worse, starting in July Chrome 68 will begin flagging all http: sites as insecure as part of Google's push for end-to-end web encryption:...

    No problems here with Chromium 66.0.3359.139 build on Linux. I suspect it has to do with the EAA site not using encryption with an HTTPS URL and associated certificate, and your browser set up to...

    This is a big gripe of mine. Most numbers in aviation are meaningless without more detail, and let's face it, most of the numbers plastered in advertising have more to do with marketing than...

    I use Gentoo Linux and Firefox, and I didn't have any issues with the live video other than being unable to control the camera. I suspect that's because I have flash cookies turned off. Wasn't an...
