"Prowlers" are supposed to be sneaky, aren't they?

A lot of us on the thread have Macbooks / Macbook Airs along with an iPad and or iPhone.
1 of the common issues is that this means carting a lot of extra plugs and chargers with you.
Well not any more. Check this out:

You can post those all day long as far as I'm concerned. The 3D on this one adds so much... I wouldn't have realised the bottom left sticks out so much otherwise.

I'm a bit late to the party but I hope Jay had a good day.

In other news, I am happy to report that we lit our brick oven for the first time this weekend!



Thanks, Jo! Yes the stereo pairs that work best are the ones where the normal image just doesn't have the cues to read depth properly.

I admire your brick oven extremely. Pizza, pizza!

Here's another way to track aircraft. The website flightradar24.com or the application for multiple platforms. It combines FAA info and received ADS-B transponder info. Normally it also displays destination and route times, not sure why it isn't for this flight. It even replays past flights. Hold your phone/tablet up to the sky and it'll tell you what flights you're seeing. Neat toy.

Erich,

it only displays route info if the ADS-B receivers like an SBS box have that info in their database.

I converted an RTL1090 USB TV Tuner to work as an ADS-B receiver using the Planeplotter software.

Thanks for the info. I just got the app a few days ago, so I'm still learning how it actually works. Spent way too much time staring at people going places yesterday.

Been working at HQ all day getting organized for the next barrage of assignments, which is a very good thing. I've been looking at that blank west wall where the Cheetah Glenn gave me was supposed to reside. When you have a space this size, you have to be very conscious of redundant shapes and textures. so I've been looking for something that would be entirely different in all of those categories, yet enhance the warm masculine feel of the place. Today, after much second guessing and imagining, designing and redesigning a new shelving unit arrived. The patience and handwringing paid off, it's just what that wall needed. I've repaired and refinished my Cub prop, the one I used to remove a parking cone that Cutter left out in the middle of nowhere, it's going up on the west wall to the left of the new shelves. That wooden prop will look great there, and remind me not to be dumber than Cutter. I think that was about as much lemonade as I could squeeze from that event.

The place is not quite ready to shoot, but it's getting closer, and today was a big step in that direction.

Really like the Prowler color bird Jay. I've never had the chance to catch him a EC. Maybe in a couple of weeks

More from Luke...

Thanks Brian, Luke it is a fun location to shoot. The light can be challenging at certain times of the day; however, there always seems to be a gem or two to be captured if I'm on my toes and prepared.

Hm, well, I will speak to Alan nicely and see....the thought occurs that a bunch of us might be assembled for the Moto GP races, although I don't know how feasible it will be to prepare dough while we are at the racetrack.... Let me mull upon that for a bit.
