I am rebuilding the site from scratch. But I do have the images and text. Just not and an easily importable form...It is going to take time to fix. I am not going to re-add all of the news articles.

Most links will be broken until I can fix them. Some will not be fix - the old site is gone. No time to fix it.

Well, after all of the crap, this month has turned out pretty awesome. My upgrade for my Original Prusa i3 Mk2 came in! Took forever, but it was worth the wait. I will do a write up on the process soon.

My wife got me, not one, but 3 drones. And not just any drones either. They are the Star Wars Propel drones. I have the T-65 X-Wing, the Tie Advanced x1 and the 74-Z Speeder Bike. Now these would be cool all by themselves as drones, but they are collectors boxes with display case that play sounds and music from the movies. The remotes also includes sound bites and prompts. Additionally, there is a smartphone app that allows you to practice your flying. Oh, and did I mention they all have IR guns? You can actually have dogfights. 

I have not unboxed the Tie Advanced or the Speeder Bike yet, so I will take some pictures of one of them. EDIT: I unboxed the Speeder Bike and you can see the write up here. The X-Wing flies really well and stable, though I have only been flying in the training mode, which keeps you from going too high or too low. 

My wife got me the X-Wing and I was so impressed with it, she went and got me the other two. Isn't she great?

ttfn,

Keith

Well, I have the structure where I want it, for now. Got the last little bits in place. I think I got all of the links fixed. I am sure there are a few that I missed. Mainly they are internal page references. I renamed some stuff and others were auto generated, so please bear with me. I think I have completed the updates. I have created the individual gallery pages. I may do some cosmetic stuff once I am sure I like what I have.

I have lots of really neat stuff coming up. My 3d printer (Original Prusa i3 mk2s) has a major upgrade coming and I am planning on taking lots of pictures. I have a couple of robotics/micro controller projects in the works as well. I also would like to get my XY plotter to be wireless - another cool project.

ttfn,

Keith

I have pretty much all of the data re-entered. I have some links to fix. I corrected some structural errors, but that broke some links. Most have been fixed. I am going to add some more pages too, but that can come later.

My CMS Made Simple is now on the current version, 2.2.7. I am not sure what happened. But it pooched really bad and was pretty much non-recoverable. I managed to get the data (text and pictures) back, but I had to manually build pages and paste the data in. What a pain! 

I guess it was partially my fault for not checking on my site very often. I had a lot of things going on. No excuses, it was what it was. I have bunch of stuff in the wings. A few robotics projects, and a big upgrade for my Original Prusa i3 mk2s to the 2.5 version. I have a few more parts to print and I will be ready to do the upgrade.

We will have to see how it goes. Thanks for your patience. 

ttfn,

Keith
