Neat satelite and location site

Has a huge database listing for location of cities around the world. I found it while trying to get Lat Long coordinates for obscure European cities.

Gives you a sky watcher guide to satelites and "flares" to look for as the pass over. Also constelation info as well as amature radio downling freqs for a bunch of setelites.

OK it has been almost a year since I have stubled onto this. Now MAKE has too. If you don't have your vol 3 yet, just look 1/3 the way down on MAKE magazine.

And keep in mind that maps.google.com has satellite images for large parts of Europe.

Good choice putting $4,000 rims on your 1990 Honda Civic. That's like Betty White going out and getting her tits done.

I'm subscribing today, so I'll know for the future. Just in case, I need to shoot things...

I have an old paintball gun that I would love to modify to make a fully auto stay puff gun
