...I think that's everything.  I will convert everything over this weekend (Oct 31/Nov 1) unless I get a request for a change or a request to hold off on converting it over...don't forget that the new pages should be mobile phone/tablet compatible so you can test them that way as well

The test pages now refer back to themselves .. i.e. clicking on the Barntek logo on the new Archives page will bring you back to the bootstrap home page... Also, the bulletin board and gallery links on the test pages work now

The whole site is changing! I'll be updating all the web pages on the site during the next few days/weeks to make them look nicer and to make them more "mobile device" friendly...I will let you all know when I'm ready to change everything over...In the interim, I'll post links to the pages that I've updated so you can look and comment...

Please use this thread for comments and suggestions for improvements over what I've done ("Looks like crap" would not be a very helpful comment, tell me WHY it looks like crap)...Also, check it out on your iPhones/Androids/iPads to make sure it translates well

Here are the ones I've done so far:

Home page
Near Space Basics
Archives Page
Balloon 2015
Balloon 2007
Balloon 2008 (including Dan's Writeup)
Balloon 2009 dwb writeup is in progress but you can see the "progress-so-far" when you click the button (**Finished!**)
DWB writeup
Balloon 2010
Balloon 2014
...and finally, the links page

One change you'll notice with the new website is the login for ftp....If you're gonna log in as admin, it's still the same login name but you have to include @barntek.net at the end of it...password is still the same as well

Based on this year's experience, I think we all know that we need more than one computer tracking the balloon.  I tried to setup something similar to what Danny runs, but the software is old and some is obsolete. 

I started thinking about the Internet version that Danny wrote, and the fact that I figured out how to decipher the KISS TNC stuff, and I think I am going to try to write my own tracking program in Python.  I found there is a Google Maps API library for Python, so I am going to install it and start playing with it and see if I can come up with something.

Google Maps API Library for Python

I don't know if this is the Library I finally end up with or not, but this is where I am going to start.

Our website has been successfully switched over to new servers at the provider.  The old website will still be available until the end of June 2015 just in case we forgot something or left something out.  As you're going through the pages here, please let me know asap if you find something not quite right so I can at least compare side by side with the old site and see if I can come up with a solution.

Thanks

Ok, my laptop still had the last session up and availible from when I hooked to the Flight Package and started everything.  If I had been paying attention, I would have seen in a couple of places what was going on and could have fixed it prior to launch.  Danny bought me plenty of time to do this with his radio issues, but I didn't take advantage of it.  We (I) need to be more careful next time.

These clues both occurred prior to my disconnecting the laptop.  Had I paid attention to what was actually going on, I would have caught it, and corrected it before launch.
