Well, first off, I want to thank Larry Larson and Rick Brennan, both members of VAF, for their support during my recovery from surgery.
Iím not yet working on the RV-3B. In fact, itís only been this week that Iíve even thought about it. Before that I just wasnít well enough. One of the factors was that as a result of the operation, I was always very tired and couldnít focus my attention on anything much. Fortunately, thatís now receding.
I did some minor shop clean-up the other day. It was the first time Iíd been out there to do anything useful since the operation - baby steps.
The main upcoming work is to finish riveting the tailcone top on and then to make the composite canopy frame. I imagine these will take me a while, even after I get back to it. For the present, my physical restrictions preclude that work for some weeks ahead.
Here and there, I did manage to change some of the photo hosting from TinyPic to Imgur.com. Since the TinyPic photos seem to be gone completely, I used the PDF copies Iíd made of the blog pages as a photo source. Itís slow going and somewhat boring, too. The photos are, as of right now, back through post #136. I hope to continue the effort.
Sure wish there were a better way of managing that.
One thing worth noting is that on these photos, Iím not including links to an alternate photo-host just in case. Why? It would be a lot of work. I recommend that as I get a full page updated, that you hit (this works on a Mac, donít know about Windows) Print, PDF, Save As PDF. Youíll have your very own copy. You can probably save the page as an HTML page but thatís a bit of a pain and takes a lot of space. PDF is recommended in spite of its imperfections.
The links to an alternate photo-hosting site have been iffy at best. Iíve primarily used Postage.org, and many of the links I posted now seem to be defunct. I donít know why. Itís frustrating and I donít know what the solution is. I'm thinking of a blog on one the blog-hosting sites, but that seems ambitious.
