  1. Yes, it appears to be visible even when not logged in.
  2. The "About Me" tab appears to only show up on a user's profile if they've filled it in. I can see yours just fine. You should be able to see mine too (admittedly not very interesting).

    Curious TFR at 0O4

    You could always call the NorCal TRACON phone number listed on the TFR and ask about it.

    Curious TFR at 0O4

    They've had similarly-shaped TFRs between 0O4 and the northwest corner of the Camp Fire TFR during the last week, and I see upcoming TFRs for the next three days. The title of the TFRs mentions ARNG, which suggests the Army National Guard may be operating aircraft in support of the firefighting efforts out of Corning. The timing and altitude of the TFRs is a bit weird though, 8pm to 5am from 10,000 to 13,000ft. Perhaps they're assisting with IR mapping of the fire area?

    Altimeter vs manifold pressure gauge

    You don't mention what model JPI engine monitor you have, but the manual for the EDM 830 says in Section 8 Programming Manifold Pressure (MAP) to set the MAP to the airport's current altimeter setting when you're doing the adjustment at a sea level airport. If you're not at sea level, they provide a table in which you look up the value to use based on airport altimeter setting and field elevation.

    Today's flight for 2018

    It took over an hour to upload that three minute video clip on my awful home internet connection, so I figured I'd limit it to the bits that leave a good impression

    Today's flight for 2018

    My GoPro Hero 7 arrived this week, so I took it for a test run on my flight back to Lakeport this evening. I was very impressed with the built-in stabilization. Here's a clip of my transition through Oakland's class C airspace.

    Today's flight for 2018

    A great view while on my way down to Palo Alto start my work week. Looking towards downtown San Francisco from the coastline Bravo transition at 3,500ft.

    Same result on my iPad Pro 9.7” and iPhone XS Max.

    Foreflight flight category

    ForeFlight 10.4.1, running on iOS 12.0.1. When zooming the map view out I'm seeing flight category dots on airports all across North America, including the US, Canada and Mexico.

    Foreflight flight category

    I'm still seeing the flight category dots on most airports with METARs on the map in ForeFlight. It certainly isn't limited to those near my route.

    Today's flight for 2018

    @bonal Yup, I bought N335BB from @Bennett at the end of July. It was sitting in LASAR's hangar for the duration of the fires, and it wasn't until the end of August that I was finally able to take her up. I've been averaging around an hour of flight time a day since then, and am enjoying the heck out of that aircraft. Bennett did a wonderful job on the upgrades and equipment selection.
