Wireless...undoubtedly the most misunderstood technology in networking today. For those familiar with the
technology, you'll find a few pages here that explain things like Standard packet header information, path loss
calculation and cellular signal strength readings and typical 50 Ohm conversion calculations. Additionally, for
convenience, I've provided links to the standards setting body IEEE, for a thorough explanation of current standards.

I'm going to do some research on jewelry cleaners and report my findings.
Evidently Worley's have some experience is clean jewelry. I wonder why that
is, naturally I want clean jewelry.
Bonsai Care and Maintenance Guide
I've got an affinity for plants. I suppose that came about from my mother, who is quiet the botanist. Over the
years, I've killed hundreds of them! Not intentionally, but that's how I've learned what I know about keeping
various species, and eventually, what got me into Bonsai. I've killed my share of Bonsai as well, but have slowly
begun to understand what it takes to maintain a healthy plant, bonsai or "other".
Because of my location in the world, Zone 7, according to the USDA, I can only keep
certain species of plants. As a result, this page and my interest are mostly related to the species I CAN keep.
Flying...short of Space Travel, flying is probably the most exciting invention of recent history. Possibly all time.
When Orville Wright first launched in December of 1903, the world still did not understand what boundaries had been
crossed. Since then, mankind has pressed the limits of aerodynamics, manufacturing technologies and aeronautical
engineering beyond what could have been imagined in the early 1900's. Even so, we are quiet young in our
understanding and development path of aeronautics. Consider this; the propeller used by Orville Wright has been
analyzed by today's standards for efficiency, and was thought to peak at 82% in tunnel test! What have we really
learned? Or were the Wright brothers just lucky?
Amateur Radio, or Ham Radio as some call it has been a good hobby to me. Like most hobbies, you can get into it as
deeply as you want. For me, it was a reason to go back to school and drill down on some electronics courses I always
wanted to take. For others, simply "rag chewing" satisfies their needs.
With the recent changes made by the FCC, Morse Code is no-longer a requirement to work the HF bands. This change
allows Amateur Radio operators to work ALL parts of the world on the HF bands, and hopefully will result in more
"newbies" picking up the hobby.
Unless you're retired, you'll probably want to focus on certain aspects of Amateur Radio (for time sake). For me,
those areas of focus are QRP, Satellite Operation, Numbered Station monitoring, and several of the popular Data
Modes. Hope you enjoy these pages...
Here, you will find an all inclusive reference for absolutely everything you could ever need to know about PC's.
Here we go...IF you use a PC, throw it away and by a Mac. Second, if you have reason to believe there is a PC on
your network, use the link below to find out the manufacturer, based on the mac. With this information, you can walk
around, find the PC, and throw it away. I recommend you destroy the machine so that some poor soul doesn't dig it
out of a dumpster and try to use it! See...that's all you need to know about PC's. If you'd like a second opinion
on this, see this Link
