    Restoring old cars, music, reading, computers, cooking and of course modelling. I also run a web site for our City, Oakdale, California. (Sorry it's private) it uses the same software this site does, and exists as a place for the people of Oakdale to let loose and play around. It's a lot of fun.

    While you're at it, check out the Ubuntu by Mint. Same everything except an easier interface.

    We had a black lab and a huge main-coon cat. The cat had one of those "Cat trees" for lack of a better word. Lots of places to hide and jump around, holes to hop into with shelves and a crows nest at the top. The cat would jump in a hole and go down to the next shelf and when the dog stuck his head in the cat would shred his chin from below. To the day she died she had scars on her chin.

    LOL! It was all cheating. Unreal. Not authentic at all. I went to a - so called - prestigious cooking school, Okay, so I was lazy.

    Now that's a fine running network. Validating the integrity of a 400 GB backup image on the NAS.

    I often hire neighborhood kids to do small jobs around the yard. I always ask if they know what the word "Integrity" means. If they don't they don't stand a chance of being hired. I also ask them how they rate their level of confidence on a scale of 1 to 10. One kid says, "10. Depending on what it is."

    Here? LOL. Their all on the take. Even our local police department can't make a breaking and entering stick. Video, home alarm going off... We have a neighbor that cranks his music. Retired cop. Call the police and they say there's no noise ordinance. We pay Home owner association fee's. Why, then? I met the City Administrator one day at a neighborhood watch meeting. I asked and he said there most certainly is. He went and bitched at the dispatch people. (One in particular) Now they say, if they can't here it when they get there an hour later I'll have to make a citizens arrest. I've been fighting this for ten years. We're moving to the foot hills of the Sierra Mountains this spring. Lot's of retirement communities.

    Here you can leave a vehicle parked for 72 hours. Your tires will be marked with chalk. They just wash it off.

    What upgrade improved anything? When? Yeah, I like it a lot. Especially as slow as I type. Trick is a good microphone.

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model shipcraft.

The Nautical Research Guild puts on ship modeling seminars, yearly conferences, and juried competitions. We publish books on ship modeling techniques as well as our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, whose pages are full of articles by master ship modelers who show you how they build those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you what details to build.
