Some highlights of the software (as told on their site):
So I finally got my 15 hours of solo flight time in, and worked up the nerve to take the final check for obtaining my license. And guess what...
I succeeded in obtaining my license. Yes yes, it's still a license for solo flight (still 35h fly time to go), but it's a start.
Now I can start for competition training, etc. The worlds open up, again.
After 9 months, my nephew is finally born. His parents have named him Mathies.
And yes, he's just as cute as you would imagine.
During the course of the lifetime of a Windows Installation, you're bound to stack up on one or more devices that no longer exist. Additionally, some device (existing or not) with an attitude, could very well make your life a living hell.
Luckily, there's a solution, with this cool software:
Up until now, I was flying my solos with a Twin Astir II. It's a 2 seat glider which we use at our club for training (among other things).
The instructors thought it was time I moved on to something else: a Club Astir (also known as the Jeans).
The Jeans is a one seater, sort of the 1-seat equivalent of the Twin Astir I (yes, there's a difference between Twin I and II). It's a small and swift craft; not very recent, and it's a bit fickleish at times. In short: I love it!
I'll be flying this for a while, at least until I've enough hours on the thing to move up to the next glider.
What would an OS says or think when copying files - let's say, about 100MB of MP3 - to an SD card?
What's an SD card?
Alright. Wait around a bit, and it'll be done. Don't ask me when, because I'm terrible at guessing.
What? Me? Do you have any idea what you're asking of me? It requires careful planning: first see whether it all fits on your card, then calculating the time, and even then, I'm not sure if I'll do it. Maybe you should check back tomorrow; maybe I've gotten around to it by then, just maybe...
If you're using NAT for networking with your VMs, you need to use port forwarding if you want to access a VM from the outside network. This is a quick and dirty howto on how to do this in linux.
Fire up a terminal, and enter these commands:
VBoxManage setextradata nvm3 "VBoxInternal/Devices/pcnet/0/LUN#0/Config/ssh/HostPort" 28080 VBoxManage setextradata nvm3 "VBoxInternal/Devices/pcnet/0/LUN#0/Config/ssh/GuestPort" 28080 VBoxManage setextradata nvm3 "VBoxInternal/Devices/pcnet/0/LUN#0/Config/ssh/Protocol" TCP
In the sample above, I'm forwarding port 28080/tcp from the host to 28080/tcp on the guest. My VM's name is nvm3.
Got a link to this article about best practices on keeping your inbox as empty as possible. Very useful for those that get a lot of mail at work:
At the bottom of a confirmation mail from UPS, I saw this:
Literally translated it says: the UPS logo and the color brown are trademarks of United Parcel Service of America.
Does this mean we can't use the color brown anymore without infringing this trademark?
Namesys, the commercial developer of the Reiser4 filesystem, still has its website down. However, the source code and development is still going on, and can be retrieved at:
A good thing, because it would be a shame to lose such a good filesystem...
A collegue sent me this link. It's a list of most (if not, all) LiveCDs currently available, with links to their respective websites. Additionally, they have been classified according to functionality.
