Back Online... And a Left Turn...

I lost my ageing primary computer workstation last Christmas morning, due to a failing hard drive.Immediately I scrambled to ensure that all of the Westsail project files (Pictures, CAD, CNC Modeling files) were backed up and accessible. Finally, I have the replacement system assembled, online and running. This system is built with all new parts. No more cobbling a system together with old parts from other machines. Furthermore, a newer, faster 64 bit multi-core processor, maximum RAM and multi-terabyte storage should ensure this system will serve the project's needs for a few years.

A Left Turn...

As for the Westsail project, things are happening. Both large and small. Of course progress is never as fast as I want. If anything, the Westsail build has been an education in project management. This year, the Westsail will get less than normal attention due to a new large project coming online. Here is a hint...

While not exactly boat building, this project does ultimately connect with the Westsail. For that I give you three words: "large wood shop."

I am looking forward to being surrounded by lots of right angles for a change.

More on this later...
