    I completed training on the Bridge of the U.S.S. Aegis: NX-1787. An Aegis Class Starship this morning by completing training on Helm, Tactical, Engineering and the Captains Chair by completing the first mission. It was great fun.
    Now we need to figure out how to get the People of Earth to spend less on War and more on building Starships, Starbases and Colonies on other Planets. Regards - Todd

    I just ordered the 2025 FAR/AIM and a Drone Flight School training manual.

    The new FAR/AIM is not released until August 1st.

    I am going to take the next step in Drones and Drone Training and get my Drone Pilots License.

    This will be needed for our #droneballoon and #cargodrone projects.

    I do not think of the training as school or work - I think of it as fun! Great stuff! - Todd

    Today I learned to Pilot a Starship!

    We decided to take a break from programming environments on the Meta Quest 3 - and loaded Start Trek: Bridge Crew by Ubisoft.

    The game begins on the Simulated Bridge of the U.S.S. Aegis: NX-1787.
    The first lesson is on the Helm and How to Navigate the Ship.

    Great fun and after the Meta Quest 3 recharges, I will probably explore the game further.

    We are having a record heat wave here in the South Eastern United States so its a good day to play games.

    Stay Cool! - Todd

    Ten Days of Good News, Day Ten - Electric Bikes and Offroad Vehicles.

    The new electric bicycles would certainly be adored by the Wright Brothers (who built bikes into airplanes).
    I like the way one can pedal and use the bike like those from my childhood but at the same time it recharges the battery.
    Electric Golf Carts and Offroad Vehicles are awesome too.
    All of these help get a person outside of the house, or off the couch and provide many days of fun and adventures.

    Ten Days of Good News, Day Nine - UPS - Uninterruptible Power Supply

    When you live anywhere there is a power grid - especially here in Florida - expect power outages and even for the power to blink on and off for no apparent reason

    If you had told me even ten years ago that I could store Terabytes of information on a USB Drive or SSHD that is smaller than my wallet, I would have asked you what you were smoking.
    Today they are a reality and even come in metal cases that are many colors and shapes to help identify the data stored on them.

    Originally the standard was for the UPS to give the User 10 minutes to shut down. Now UPS units act as surge protectors and give low power use computers up to an hour to work and shut down.

    Ten Days of Good News, Day Seven - The Economy

    In spite of all the negativity from the press and the politicians the Economy in the US is "Hot Hot Hot!"

    I have never seen so much new construction and so many people employed since before COVID.

    Inflation seems to be under control and although people still complain about money - every Starbucks and Chick-fil-a has both drive throughs full out onto the street.

    I sincerely hope you, my friends, have a good job or career and are getting the pay and benefits you deserve. :)Todd

    Ten Days of Good News, Day Six - HD Cameras

    The improvement and availability of HD Cameras needs little discussion - the CONTENT and HISTORY being captured by Billions of People around the United States and World are the good news.

    From my recent trip up and down the East Coast my photography shows a Nation with many different ethic groups, races, religions and sexual orientations ALL together happy - celebrating their freedoms.

    Those photos are now part of American History and disprove most of the negativity posted in the media.

    Ten Days of Good News, Day Five - Computers

    The first computers I worked and trained on were huge, often the size of a dining room. The first PC's were also large and required heavy CRT type monitors.

    Todays computers are our Cell Phones. More powerful than the early computers and with integrated sensors and communication systems as well as HD Cameras and other features. As we progress into 2024 - 2025 our computers are becoming our wrist watches. Small, portable, often waterproof, programmable and powerful - they run off their internal batteries for days or weeks. Small powerful computers are the good news for Day Five. Even as I write this I can envision even smaller computers including those in medical devices.

    These improvements in computers benefit all mankind and are being carried into Space with us.

    Ten Days of Good News, Day Four - Optics, Smaller Medical Devices and Medical Watches.

    Optics is the Science of Light.  Light is used in a scientific instrument called a spectrometer.  Spectrometers measure light and changes to light once the light hits and form of matter.  Medical devices use the science of optics in many sensors.

    The Medical Watch on my arm uses a small spectrometer to determine blood oxygen level, sugar level, and blood chemistry without drawing blood.
    Medical watches now give all the information one receives in an Emergency Room hooked up to a number of machines as well as blood tests.

    The Computer Dudes is one of millions of companies testing and developing the technology and improving the technology
    The watches are already helping millions improve their health.

    The future is Bright! (forgive the Optics pun) - Todd W. Byars, Computer Dudes, Tallahassee, Florida :)

    Ten Days of Good News, Day Three
    - 800 Watt per Panel, Solar Panels

    Solar Panels have evolved from heavy aluminum framed panels that generate up to 100 Watts of Power per hour - to Thin Flexible Panels that require no frame, are very light, can be used in temporary or permanent placement generating - 800 Watts per panel.

    People use them to power their mobile homes, boats, cabins in remote locations and in the case of Computer Dudes - computers and data centers.

    The new panels are much less expensive, made of a thin plastic and can be shredded for recycling at the end of their service life.

    Google Chrome and Microsoft's Browser got a little too intrusive so now we are installing Tor and Duck Duck Go on all computers with a Microsoft Operating System - before we deliver the new computer to our clients.

    Demand for Linux computers and converting computers and laptops to Linux is increasing faster than it has in years.

    We find this to be a very positive trend - it is almost as if people and companies have had enough of huge bloated spyware that does not function. To that we say "Hurrah!!"

    Neither NASA nor the Library of Congress responded to our requests.

    So we go around them and directly to the sources.

    Being a former Teacher I am setting the library up with Old Books and New and also Textbooks for PreK-12 and College.

    It has been a rough 7 days. Starting Last Friday 2 Major Storms hit Tallahassee, Florida.
    Most of the area was without power for a couple of days.
    Today I completed my storm cleanup and delivered the last of the emergency supplies to those on my list.
    Everyone is safe and recovery had begun.
    Thanks to all who helped, get some rest and family time when you can.

    It does not really matter where you are in Florida or the SE United States you are subject to the weather and power / internet failure even with triple redundant systems.
    I just lost a nice post for this website when went to post it and the Internet blinked. Then the power blinked. Now its raining.
    In 15 minutes the sun will be out again. Crazy Summer Weather!
