This is rcrick and they say this is my blog space. I don't really understand all I know about it, but here goes.

I Have been flying rc since 1979. My main rc interest these days is: Electric and flying wireless video. I have gotten rid of all my fuel stuff. It's not that I don't enjoy going out and flying fuel powered rc. It's just that there is no one in my area flying at all, and the electric suits going out and just making one or two flights by myself. If there were a group of guys flying fuel around here, I would be out there with them with my fuel planes and maybe an electric or two.

More later,


Here is some links to My Gallerey and latest video.
How do I get my Gallery stuff over here on my blog?

Here is some more photos and video of my video plane.

Heres a couple pics of my Dragonus II. I modded a Mini Titan battery tray to hold the battery at an angle, it was too long otherwise.
Needs a cleanup pass at the wiring and a better tail servo than HS56.

The search system has been giving gripes to everyone for quite some time. With every new post added, it was harder and harder for search engine to grind them and then perform the search. Average search time slowly raised to tens of seconds, longest searches took several minutes. The slowest queries were those with the overly simple search terms (like all those queries for "plane" or "blade"... or even "GWS". I often wonder what people expect to see when looking for such common terms?). I even had to add the script for killing queries which were running for more than 5 minutes, otherwise they would bog down the servers and the subsequent searches. But it was just the band-aid to the most glaring symptom, and the main problem - the sheer size of the posts database - grew bigger and bigger.

Then there was a problem with managing that big database - after one of the hard drives crashed and the search database was corrupted, it took almost 20 hours to rebuild the search index!

Another observation: with maximum 700 results returned, a common search just barely scratches the surface of the 5 million posts iceberg, leaving 99% of posts as a dead weight. One had to be very specific to have the search engine to look up in the earlier posts (and years).

So I had this obvious idea of splitting the posts by their year and having the default search to only go through the reasonable amount of recent posts. It solves both the slow search times problem and the inability for search to go deeper than an year or so ago. Implementing it was fun, the only problem was to find all places where the post table was altered in a way which could affect search.

So far the results are very satisfactory, the longest search took just 21 seconds, and it was one of the searches which took more than 5 minutes before, and would've been killed under old system (and no, I won't say what is the search term).

When I was taking pictures for the current AP contest (Air to Air Bird shots) I had difficulty getting the birds off the ice! When they did they seemed intimidated by the slowstick and bolted quickly from the area.

Hi I'm from Butcher Hollar,
and I get a little hot around
the collar, I'm a honky tonk
angel and proud of it.

I'll make the best darn fried
chicken you ever ate I
guarantee you'll even eat
the plate.I use Crisco oil
and a batter I'm wild and
free and I like to chatter
my guest tonight is my
friend the mad hatter.

I'm crazy like a fox and I
can outbox any kangeroo
and kick better and harder
than you do.I can run like
the wind and sing like an
angel and if I ever fall flat
on my face may God give
me the grace to get up
