    New camera system questions?!

    Get the 16 port NVR instead of the 8 port. I am up to 10 cameras now. Most are variations of the T5442T. All cams were bought from Andy!

    The official "WTF" thread

    Volunteers were restoring a B-17 when I was working at Boeing. They had 1 side of our 757 building. I don't know which one it was....maybe the Boeing Bee at the museum of Flight? I know they flew it after restoration.
