Experiencing: Niagara Falls – Cave of the Winds – Bridal Veil Falls – Hurricane Deck

A thrilling walk on Niagara Falls’ wild side, the spectacular Cave of the Winds Tour takes visitors into a stormy mist zone, where “soaking up the experience” takes on new meaning!

The journey begins with an elevator ride 175 feet down into the Niagara Gorge. Geared-up in a souvenir rain poncho and specially designed sandals, guests follow wooden walkways along Niagara River to the Hurricane Deck, just a few breathtaking feet from the torrents of Niagara…



A function that returns insanity

A function that returns insanity

Playing around with a bit of pseudo-code today (loosely based off C#).  It’s a bit of a nerd-play off of the concept of “Build. Fly. Crash. Repeat.

 

I originally started out with a function that returns “happiness”.  Here is what it looked like:

This is a function named “everythingcpo.com” that returns “happiness”.  It’s essentially an…

So, I totally realize there are much more productive things I should be doing with my time. But, I couldn’t help diverting from my required task list to throw this together really quick. It’s made me laugh every since I thought of the concept…so I hope you think it’s funny.

 

That is all.

Low Sugar Diet or Low Fat Diet? You decide.

Sorry for the long and boring medical post, but if you have weight or cholesterol issues, it might be worth a read.

Some of you might have caught on that I have changed my diet over the last two or so months. (About as long as I have been growing my beard!)

During my annual physical two months ago, I was told I need to go back on medication to get my cholesterol in check. I made…

THE NEW LOGO, HATS, AND T-SHIRTS

Here’s the new logo. It’s basically the Rev 2, but cleaned up a bit.

Additionally, I drafted up a T-Shirt design. I think it looks pretty cool. I ordered the tan one to see how it looks in real life…and I should have it in about a week.

Lastly…I had a hat made…You can see it in…



NASA-Quadcopter

NASA. Quadcopter. Saturn. Moon. Really!?

Okay…we knew this was coming…right?

NASA wants to search Saturn’s moon Titan for life but they’re having trouble coming up with a good way to cover a large territory and obtain samples. Now they think they may have a good solution: A 22-pound quadcopter that will work from a mothership. After reading about it, it’s a really cool idea.

I won’t reproduce the whole article…you can find it here:

CPO Rep'n the Nation

CPO Rep’n* the Nation

So I finally broke down and bought one of the RCHN hats, and yes…I have my Citizen Number stitched on the back. It was a little pricey for a hat, imho, but I don’t mind spending a little more than I think I should to support a good cause  (I did admittedly pay extra for the custom embroidery of my number) …and the guys at RC Heli Nation have been unknowingly instrumental in my development in…

Installing Unsigned Drivers in Windows 8

 

Previously, I uploaded this video on updating KK2.1 firmware in both OSX and Windows operating systems. For the Windows platform, I was using Windows 7.  A few people have contacted me for help with doing this on Windows 8 or 8.1, since they were running into an issue with the unsigned driver.  Here’s the video regarding the KK update, but this issue can come up in a lot of other ways that updating firmware on…



FPV Lacrosse

I bought this little camera to strap to airplanes and helicopters, but I’m finding other cool uses for it as well. Today, I put it on the top of my son’s lacrosse helmet for a little FPV game play.
