I really do not know. I just did a search on the top gun stuff and it appears I was incorrect.

It was held at Paradise Field, Lakeland, FL.

Seriously, I think there are a lot more "limitations" then they indicate.

I agree - but will not be surprised when things start flying around.

It will be good target practice for the bubba's around here.

Hey Ron, have you heard of a computer virus named "Heartbleed"? System administrators are all in a buzz about it here, implementing security upgrades and the such.

Not a virus - it is a serious hole in a piece of software named OpenSSL.

I believe there are two specific versions identified, but I could be wrong about that.

Any server/provider (i.e Yahoo, Google....) who was using this is/was impacted, meaning your information may have been available for the taking.

To be on the safe side, I have been going through passwords all day today - extremely painful, and changing them.

One of the big issues is this problem has been there for a long time. It is possible others have known about it long before these security guys discovered it.

This site says they are going to check the top 100 sites whatever that means, but at least you can see who some of these are.

Indeed..... OpenSSL on web servers has been leaking the last couple of years and they don't know how much data has leaked....

If you have accounts that are web based, it is a good time to consider changing all your passwords if you know they have been patched.

Here is the test for it.. Site is a little slow <lots of use>. Put in the URL and validate web sources you use.

This is funny, here are my results for a specific site - somehow has not reassured me

TLS extension 15 (heartbeat) seems disabled, so your server is probably unaffected.

Thanks for the link - will try some more.

Yeah, I know this is off topic but this is important, thanks for the info. I've been changing passwords as well.

To be safe I guess we need to chage passwords every few months. It wasn't that long ago that this site was hacked.

The motor on that last plane sounded a little funny....

That night flying looks like a ton of fun. I have to assume it is always done where there are no trees - guess you could light them up too.

Really liked the one over water.

Yeah, that is this plane and it looks like a lot of fun. Also looks like an easy build and a great flyer. The designer is just down the street.
I'll bet he will be at Joe Nall.
