Busy, busy, busy.........

Been so busy between things falling apart and computers acting up I haven't had time to do much lately let alone write a blog entry. As a matter of fact there was almost a full day between this sentence and the previous one. I finally got Marie's computer all fixed up and naturally both of mine started going sour. Most of it was due to my slowness in learning how to configure a new firewall to work with our network. Right now everything is purring right along and all the software is doing what it is supposed to do. One thing I did get rid of was my Office Outlook email. Most of my email addresses now forward to my Gmail inbox instead. I figured why store all that stuff on my computer when Gmail and Google Document storage will do it for me. Also on the subject of data storage you absolutely have to check out  \http://www.adrive.com/ - You can get 50 GB of FREE online storage. Upload & Store Files, Access Files Anywhere, Edit Documents Online, Remote File Transfer, Desktop Backup Client and tons more. It sure freed up a lot of room on my computers. I still back up stuff to CDs and external drives but it never hurts to have more options. 

Cape Breton Dragway's test and tune session on Saturday July 12 had perfect weather, great traction and almost 60 entries. The field was split about 1/3 Tuners, 1/3 bracket cars and the last 1/3 was Bikes and sleds. Next event will be a Wednesday night Test and Tune session on July 23 then July 25-26-27 will be an ADRA Points Meet. The weekend after that it will be the Extreme Drag Race event at Miramichi. I've got so much going on lately it looks like it may be awhile before my next entry - check the Maritime Drag Racers Message Board for what's happening on the Drag Racing front.
