Thanks Ralph (and Alan). I really enjoyed these, especially the tree landings and your comments! One this really how Amazon intends to deliver our packages?
General Discussion / Quadcopter Videos

Hello All,

At last night's SLO Bytes Linux SIG, Alan Raul showed some of my quadcopter videos.  At Dick James' suggestion, I am posting the URL for my quadcopter site. 

You may view them at  Some of the videos are large downloads.  I'm currently converting them to lower resolution with the hope that they will stream more smoothly.

Wow!  Thanks for all the information.  Its more than I can digest right now (especially with my very bad stomach)! I'll give it a try, though.
Microsoft clears up some questions about who gets Windows 10 for free. This might clarify the "free" upgrade issue for some.

What's important today is your SSD connection interface to your computer. This determines the Read/Write speed of the SSD. As I have said about USB flash drives, the same is also true with SSD’s. Not all SSD’s are created equal.

In a nutshell…


FASTEST - NVMe (Non-Volatile Memory)

For some reason, according to HP, MS refused to patch a vulnerability reported to MS by HP. So, HP released the exploit code info to the public (hackers included). MS has now got the ball in this who is spiting who contest. Meanwhile, watch for a cascade display on your windows 7/8.1 screen (32 bit systems only), if that is what happens.

As more computer storage begins to be listed as "flash storage" (see  MS Surface PRO 3 and some Apple products)  you may wonder as I have what the difference between Flash Storage and SSDs is.  Here is a site with a simple version of the answer:
There are more complex answers elsewhere.
Alan, we are delighted to read that you will be back to the July SLO Bytes meeting. Perhaps you could address this a bit?
General Discussion / July 5th BBQ

Hello All,

The Annual SLO Bytes BBQ will take place on July 5th beginning at 2:00 pm.  It will replace the Second Session program. 

Given the late notice for this event, no RSVP is requested.  Your SLO Bytes membership will provide free hamburgers, condiments and soft drinks for you and one guest. If you plan to bring additional guests, we request a donation of $5 for each additional person. Of course, we always welcome donations from generous members.
 If you wish to contribute food to share with others, we encourage you to do so.  If you would like to volunteer to help out, just let us know on the day of the BBQ and you will be put to work.
 We look forward to getting together with you at this fun event.
