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.

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

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
