I thought I’d post something lighter after the last two posts, I’ll hopefully do the final (for now) instalment of that soon. I have been transferring my DVD/Bluray collection to a media server so I don’t have to ask someone every time I want to watch a firm or TV show, during this I came across something I’d completely forgotten about, a DVD labelled Watching Warblers West.
I have been doing a little experimentation on getting NASA World Wind inside WordPress as it’s not as easy as simply pasting the code from Web World Wind into a page, that’s not to say it’s hard, it just requires a little research.
I worked closely with the NASA WorldWind team when they were using Microsoft’s .NET, things have changed and evolved since then but Patrick Hogan still manages the project, he’s a good guy who I can now call a friend as well as colleague, this is an exciting opportunity for anyone with the skills required and[…]
We at the Free Earth Foundation apologise for the recent downtime on WorldWind Central, we had a pretty bad crash and lost our RAID array, our server admin f0urtyfive did some great work in recovering data from a damaged disk. We have lost about one week of forum posts unfortunately but should be back up[…]
Our server admin has been hard at work and has managed to get an image off our RAID array, he is currently copying all 4 TB of it and will then try to mount it, if all goes well we can get the forum back up soon.
The World Wind Central server has been removed from the data center and will be shipped overnight to one of our server administrators who will attempt to recover any data, we will be back up as soon as possible, again we are very sorry for any inconvenience caused by this downtime.
I apologise on behalf of FEF for World Wind Central and Madmappers being down, our RAID array has failed, I don’t have much information but we are working on getting something sorted as soon as possible.
Dominic has updated the glue records and WorldWind Central now seems to be working fine. Sorry again for any inconvenience caused.
I received word from Patrick Hogan that World Wind Central appeared to be down, after checking I confirmed this, TheBeanSprout (Dom) has checked the dns registration and it is all up to date so it is likely a server or data center problem. Nowak is no longer system administrator for World Wind Central so the[…]

I recently received an email from Spoon asking if I had any objections to them putting NASA World Wind on their site, they are teaming up with SourceForge to convert the best Windows apps on their service. Spoon is a site which takes Windows programs and apps and uses a special app virtualization technique to[…]
