Changed Again
Yes, I’ve dumped drupal. It’s time to try out WordPress for a while. I like how it works on GeeksRUs’s site, so now we see if it works here. So I’m adding some old stuff in, I guess it doesn’t make sense to be posting stories about being buried in snow in the middle of July… Or fire stories from 4 years ago [...]

I got an iPhone! The 8GB model. I can’t believe I spent $600 on a phone. Goodbye, Verizon. Goodbye, Treo 650. I arrived at the Washington Square Mall Apple Store at 6:50am Friday morning.

Traffic was backed up for miles going east. A small car had crossed the median and hit the semi head on. There was nothing left of the car, the biggest piece I saw was a 2 f [...]

Aviation Headset Adapter
I built this to use my Flightcom headset with my FT-817, it will also work with the 857 and 897. The 857 is a little annoying due to the headphone jack being on the back of the radio and the mic jack being under the control head. Very simple design, I used Cat 5 networking cable to go to the mic jack, and some Radio Shack shielded audio cable [...]
