New Live Stream/ What I know about this rocket

From what I've been told they are going to hold off on the rocket until the 24th. Here are a few useful links related to the UAF Poker Flat rocket launch. I also have a timelapse from 2003 that shows what it should look like from the webcam.

I find that this is currently not up to date if the informaiton I've been told is correct.

Live Stream from Poler Flats   
I have never watch this stream while they are launching a rocket. I'm not really sure where the stream is, How it will play out and if it will be on when they go to launch the rocket. As far as I can tell so far it is a bunch of guys setting around in chairs.

Rocket Launch Sample from Dec 2003

Broken code removed. Site loads faster? E-mail for support.

I have had some issues with the site hanging on page load. I found a broken link to a background image that I had on the site. Anyone remember? I have since removed this broken code and think that maybe it has helped increase the load time for the site. If anyone is still having troubles please e-mail me to get support. -Troy

Have you cleared your browsers cache

I have had a few reports of the website not accpecting usernames and passwords. Last week I updated a few database programs. You may need to clear your browsers cache before it will let you log into the site. IF YOU CANNOT LOGIN PLEASE TRY THIS. On windows hit CTRL+F5 to reload the page. On a MAC hit command+R to reload page. Then try to login. IF this still doesn't work please go to your browser options and clear cache and all saved website data. Any questions or comments as always please feel free to E-mail me and I will try to help as much as I can. -Troy

Sorry for the E-mails

Yesterday I did infact send everyone 2 E-mails that restated their membership info. Included in the E-mail was a broken link. This was casued by a user database transfer to a new version of the website I'm working on. The new version is hosted on my computer hence the localhost discription in the link. The good news is that I hope to have a updated version of the site in the next two weeks. I have also killed the E-mail on the new version so I hope I dont send out any more crazy E-mails. Other than that things are cold cold here in Fairbanks. I believe it was close to -38F this morning when I looked at the computer. More news to come very soon. -Troy
