Rickie Traeger: March 2nd Blog




Happy Monday!

I was scanning the band earlier tonight and heard a GMRS net.  That was the first time I have heard that. Sounded like most of them were to the North of me.  But holy cow it was cool hearing the GMRS being used, and used properly.   I have my license for the GMRS, but never hear anything on it. So it was cool just hearing something on it!

Sooooooooooooo I missed the Walking Dead.  I am about to watch the re-run of it.  Sounds like it was a good episode and I missed alot.  I guess here shortly, I will find out!   It is weird seeing Dani from Hocus Pocus on the Walking Dead.  And I am still getting used to the new cast. It is like a whole new show in itself, because like 98% of the original cast is gone 🙁

I been wanting to go for a hot air balloon ride.  Anyone know where I can do that locally?  I know it will be a bit before that happens, because it is still cold out. But I want to look into it and start planning it, so when it does get warm enough I can do it.  Also, Skydiving.  But i think I know in Beloit and Rochelle offer those 🙂

 








Rickie Traeger: Spot The Space Station, Space-X Launch, Etc…




 Happy Tuesday! Quick shout out to everyone. Hopefully you have a good day today!

I get to go work on the vehicle today.  I hate working on vehicles. So that is my plans for the day, to fix the vehicle. Wish me luck! LOL.

As you know I love looking up at the stars at night time whenever I get the chance.  Lately it has been cold or cloudy. So, I have not had the chance to do that recently. But I been trying to keep up with the astronomy and space news

Space-X is doing a launch tomm!  If I recall, around 11:50 am. Watch it on Nasa TV.

While on the Nasa website, I found a really cool thing. It is called Spot The Station. They have the dates and times that you can spot the station. Below is for the Rockford area. If you are wondering about the degrees, hold out your arm and make a fist. Put your fist at the horizon. The top of your fist is approx. 10 degrees 🙂

Rickie Traeger: Chrome Stopped Loading My Website Graphics




I think I may have found out the issue that I been trying to troubleshoot all day!  It is simple to, but confusing!

I have had an issue with the graphics loading on here.

When I use the chrome browser, they do not load. But if I use the firefox browser the site loads perfectly!  Sooooooooo, it looks like it is not an issue with my website after all and it is a chrome issue!

With that being said, it is a pain to work on the website when chrome don’t want to load the graphics. It makes it very challenging. OK, a real pain in the butt. But now that I have narrowed it down, I have to figure out why chrome ain’t loading the graphics now.

It definitely has me wondering and scratching my head going, hmmmmm.

It worked great on chrome, then all of a sudden it did not load the graphics. And the site loads great on the other browsers.

My question to you is:  Why all of a sudden did chrome stop loading my graphics, out of the blue?
