WORLD SKY RACE 2010

The World Sky Race™ is an historic tour and competition of lighter-than-air skyships racing 30,000+ miles. In sixteen back-to-back races that completely span the globe, the winner will be crowned World Sky Champion.

In their quest, the competing skyships will travel from the Greenwich Prime Meridian southward to Africa and the Middle East, across the Indian Ocean to Equatorial Asia and through the Orient, island hop across the Pacific to the western shores of North America, down to Central America, up to the North Atlantic and crossing back to Prime Meridian for an exciting finish in an historic race, completing a full global circumnavigation.

You Tube

Type in "airship" or "blimp" or "Zeppelin" to see a plethora of LTA videos -- an amazing visual resource. Videos range widely in quality. Quite often, the best are usually to be seen at corporate websites but You Tube is the veritable cornucopia. Addictive.

Campus ftp issues resolved 

And you thought we only had listserv problems. I've been unable to update this site for a few months while historic airship events -- most notably the above item -- have been occurring. I will attempt some retrospective updates.

AIRSHIP-listserv problem resolved 

Rounds of email to the campus IT people -- and their discovery that we were not alone with this issue -- resulted in a patch and subsequent fix. Our server is up and running.

AIRSHIP-listserv problem encountered 

Somewhere around 21 February 2008, the local campus listserver went wacko. I contacted the local ITS department and described the problem to them. They came up with a solution. Go ahead and give a try:

"186 of 355 of the subscribers have their mailmode set to postpone. This will store all of the email and will send them apon resetting their mailmode to ack. This is to prevent messages from accumulating during vacations and may account for a large portion of the members from not receiving emails.

By sending, from the recipient, the message with no subject to

listproc@lists.colorado.edu

with the only content

set airship-list mail ack

will set this back to normal sending and receiving."

Go ahead and give it a try.

I will be posting updates here until we get the list up and moving.
