No time at all. Just created a magazine, and used the browser bookmarklet to add articles. It does its own behind the scenes magic to make it look as magazine-Iike as possible.

Flipboard users?

Anybody else here use the app Flipboard on a phone or tablet to read news articles? It's a pretty neat app, and they added a feature recently that allows users to create their own "magazine" which is really just a collection of curated articles. Because I do like to experiment with any and...

Re: Club Fly, 6/29/13

Glad you were able to get together. I flew today with some of the local contingent out here. I got them doing some basic team flying for a while. There were 2 buggyers and one boarder as well.

Re: Sky Lanterns

Too bad. They always seemed like they had the potential for damage, but I wonder if there's any reports of actual fires stared by them. Me too. I'd be surprised. Seems by the time they come down, they'd have stopped burning for quite a while. Reminds me of the idea that using a cellphone at a gas p...

Will be great to see you And you too...I already miss all you guys terribly, even though we didn't get together frequently enough while I was in Illinois. I haven't had a chance to fly out here yet, maybe this weekend. We're still partially buried in moving boxes and stuff that doesn't have a prope...

Yeah, we didn't really go in with the expectation of doing demos, although we did hope we could.

But they asked, so we obliged. :)

I'll ask before I make other accommodations, since you had mentioned it to Mikey upthread...do you guys want another squatter for the room? If not, that's perfectly fine, just thought I'd ask. I don't require much space or oxygen, and could free up more ice cream money for you...
