Seems like a bit of an ear-biting went down in the 'Topes dugout today...

"Just to be clear, all the work and photos are not mine.  I found this link and thought the folks here on the Fix would appreciate getting to see the work that Yale Uni's team did.  I'm just a fan of any thing like this."

Massive collection of Pre-War and WWII era photographs including a large selection from the Albuquerque Rail Yard

A team from Yale has put together a map based library detailing a massive collection of photographs taken across the nation from 1935-1945 as part of the Farm Security Administration. It's organized by county and some areas are detailed more thoroughly than others, but there is a large selection of photos from the Albuquerque Rail Yard, including several in color, showing not…See More

Lahjik commented on Barelas Babe's blog post Drones in Them Thar Hills?
"I would have to say that before they should be allowed the industry should figure out two things: 1) Privacy and how to protect ALL 2) Noise.  Those things are like flying chainsaws."

Lahjik commented on Duke City Fix's blog post Sandia Tram Postcard, ca. 1964
"I don't know if it's just the coloring or it was taken during construction but man that looks bleak.  It makes that beautiful area look like a pit mine.  I'm glad I've never seen it looking like that!"

Lahjik commented on Brian Fejer's blog post Freedom - Land of the Free
"Well said, Mate.Religion in America has become a way of claiming rights rather than fulfilling responsibilities and both parties need to have their dogmas field stripped and cleaned of all the crud they've been coated in."

This is a webcomic some of you might know (PVP has been around the net forever and still rocks) which just happens to dovetail precisely with my long-suffering attempts to find a half-decent sopapilla anywhere outside New…

Upcoming chance for a (fairly large) piece of Breaking Bad History. Who wants a Tercel?

Posted on March 17, 2013 at 5:47pm 0 Comments

Auto blog Jalopnik has announced that Mike Faris Wholesale, on 4th St NW near Osuna, will be selling the 84 Toyota Tercel driven by "plucky Meth cooker Jesse Pinkman".  The only catch is that the car can't be sold until the show run is complete.  Well, that and it's a '84 Toyota Tercel...

But hey, who can pass up the chance to park a bit of Albuquerque pop culture right in their very own garage?  Me, I'd go over that bad boy with a fine-toothed comb to make sure there weren't any…

New Mexico Broadband "in the Boonies". Rural broadband travails writ large upon the 'tubes.

In the spirit of trying to generate some discussions and rev up the DCF boards, I'm putting up this link:

That connects to a 5-part series by Eric Mack on CNet (tech-news web site) which discusses some of the issues experienced in rural New Mexico, Penasco to be precise, in trying to get a workable internet connection in his new location in…

Renaming the Very Large Array??

Posted on October 14, 2011 at 10:30pm 0 Comments

This isn't strictly an Albuquerque post, so I might be amiss in putting it up here, but it's news I thought was worth spreading about.  The National Radio Astronomy Observatory has upgraded the hardware of the VLA and is now holding a contest to rename it.  I've always loved the fact that the VLA was so simply…

Hey there Lahjik, can you post your Breaking Bad announcement in the Announcement section of the Forum?  Thanks! Adelita - moderator

Lahjik, thanks for the ice cream recommendation for Denver! I used poor posting etiquette (i.e. wrote about someplace that's not Duke City) so my post was pulled. I should read the instructions sometime... The plan is to catch Bonnie Brae's for some post-sushi ice cream. My meal plans are coming together nicely. Exxxxcellent.

Thanks for the tip!
Cheers,
Tiffany

You lucky, lucky bastard. 58mph?

My record was 47.4, coming down the Jemez on 6-Aug-06. After my bike wreck two years ago this past Saturday, I'll probably never pass 35mph again.

What are you riding that you can dive bomb like that?
