Linux From Scratch
The Linux From Scratch Project caught my attention a few months ago. Back in 2000, I did compile a FreeBSD system entirely from source.

W&C Aircraft Works Aiplane Building Course
April 3, 2009
I just traveled back to Boone, Iowa to visit W&C Aircraft Works.
Located at the Boone Municipal Airport, Keith Campbell, Kevin Horn and Bob Woolery specialize in building aircraft from kits, specifically the RV series kitplanes made by www.vansaircraft.com. Aside from making a living building and repairing airplanes, they also offer kitbuilding courses and that is what has lead me there.
China and Hong Kong
March 23, 2009
I have just returned from my 20 day vacation to Shanghai, Hangzhou China and Honk Kong. During my stay in Hong Kong, I walked about 1/3rd of the McLehose trail through the Sai Kung peninsula. Also went to the bronze Buddha on Lantau.
The street vendors have a colorful array of flavors and some of the finest food in the world. I had no fear of being sick since I am well vaccinated and know how to heal myself quickly. Learning Cantonese is easy when you are immersed in the society at it's very home.
