One thing I think I’m going to get to before I repair Victor Fox, since winter is closing in on us is our basement drywall. I’d planned to do it now before the incident, anyway, as I’ve been putting it off all summer trying to keep the plane flying. I’m a little concerned that the cabinets we’ve bought for down there will suffer if they’re still in the garage when we hit freezing weather. I expect that will take about 2 weeks. In the meantime, I have been playing with Google Maps and Google Earth for our APRS tracking system (now that I’ve coded my website to pull tracking data from the Internet and store it in a mySQL table). Check out my new aprs.velocityxl.com subsite for the latest track. Here’s a shot of what’s possible with Google Earth, though I haven’t quite figured out how to do this with the web browser plug-in yet (though you can select “Earth” view on the map at aprs.velocityxl.com.
