Moonbuggy Palooza

June 29th, 2007

NASA Insignia

Those of you who wanted to see some things I am doing at NASA Langley Research Center are in for a treat. I just posted 466 photos of an event we held on June 27th. Here is the description I included on the gallery page: "Langley Research Center's Moonbuggy Palooza: Inspired by the annual competition organized by the Marshall Space Flight Center, NASA's Langley Research Center held its own moonbuggy event on June 27, 2007. The Center shipped in two buggies from Marshall so over 30 teams could race around a grassy course as a rowdy croud cheered them on…" Be sure to check out the photos and let me know what you think.

Interesting perspective on the 2008 presidential election

June 27th, 2007

I always find it interesting when someone reveals that a certain organization is running Windows, Linux, or whatever on their web server. That kind of information is quite easy to find out just by looking at the headers a server sends back to your web browser. Well, I recently ran across a survey of the various announced candidates for the 2008 US presidential election. It details the operating system and web server used to power those candidates' official websites. Go take a look at the report for an interesting perspective on the elections.

Jonathan's graduation and a summer update

Jonathan in his cap and gown

Let me start off by saying I just posted the photos from my cousin's high school graduation this past weekend. The photos include the after events where we took some group photos and ate some tasty steamed crabs. In other news…I have been working at NASA's Langley Research Center for the past few weeks. My job involves both photography and web programming, so it has been a very good fit for my interests so far. It has been very interesting seeing NASA from the inside and learning the ins and outs of this deceptively large government organization. Stay tuned, and I may post some more details of my experiences soon…though I have to be careful of United States export laws and other government concerns.
