Welcome again

Well it appears the blog will be update more than once a month as I figure to do a minimum of two monthly posts, one hardware review and one software review. Plus post on updates to dcs and xp11 which will require me to get back involved with it more. This month the hardware review is the Acer Predator 17X gaming laptop, the software will be DCS:World 2.5. Plus a bonus post on the new CaptoGloves user interface device. The first part went live today along with the laptop review.

The schedule for the posting that I hope to hold to is hardware on the first and software on the 15th of the month.these posts will be site pages that can be addressed thru a,Menu system as well as the post that was released that day. If I feel something needs to be said like something really great in an update or an announcement of a product etc I’ll try. To make a blog post that day. Also when and if I feel the need to brag on a mission I was involved with or a YouTube video I feel needs cudos I’ll blog post those also.

Ok that is it for this post I hope you really enjoy the site as it will be a living organism constantly growing and being fill with information. Please leave questions and comments on the blog posts and if I make a mistake please let me know so I can correct it. I use an iPad to write most posts and it has a mind of its own.
