Season is over

I had a decent season, considering we saw very few tornadoes in central OK. I have at least 3 on video, and maybe 1-2 more. I haven't had time to comb through all the footage. The probe needs a little work, as the clutch on the A/C blew out on one of my last chases. No biggie, I have another to replace it, just need the time to work on it. I'll try to get a recap out soon, but I have a few projects to take care of first.

That's all nice in and of itself, but the part I'm fairly excited about is that your can get/write custom add-ins for it. This opens up all sorts of possibilities for expansion. Add-ins are just starting to come out, and already I've seen add-ins to customize the web content that is published, stream the media on it to anywhere you log into it (including the Internet), stream the media to mobile phones, online photo albums, syncing albums with a Flickr account, backing up content to online data stores, and more. Sooooo many possibilities. I look forward to playing with it more.
By the way, I've noticed blogger has a much improved interface for spell checking, and an auto-save feature that is sure to save a lot of people some frustration.
