This past January I spent a week in New Mexico with my good friend Kate. It was her birthday and I said months before that I’d go wherever she wanted to go. We went to New Mexico. In the 6 days there (less if you don’t count arrival on Saturday and leaving on Friday) we put 800 miles on the car we rented. I did the driving. I was ready for a vacation from my vacation when i returned!
We stayed in Albuquerque and daily left out for day trips. We went to Acoma (already blogged about that) and then headed up to Abiquiu and Cerro Pedernal and checked out the area where Georgia O’Keefe lived for so many years and yes, I know why she loved the area so much. AMAZING!
We drove to Ojo Caliente and Chimayo...Read More
The Tularosa Basin, in southern New Mexico, isn’t especially overcrowded today. It was practically uninhabited, at least by the lights of Washington bean-counters, when, 70-odd years ago, chunks of it were given over to serve as a range on which to light up missiles and barrage the poor horned lizards and pronghorn with artillery and tank fire. The firepower would become more awesome in 1945, when the basin saw the world’s first atomic explosion, the one from which bomb inventor Robert Oppenheimer recoiled and said, “Now I am become Death, destroyer of worlds.”
For those of us who grew up during the Cold War and all its weird duck-and-cover glory, White Sands, in the heart of the Tularosa, is and shall ever be ground zero of a particular state of mind...Read More
When you think of traveling by RV down autumn roads made bright by fall foliage, do you think of Albuquerque? You should, because the region surrounding this ancient New Mexico city comes to life when the leaves begin to turn.
One of the best-known ways to see miles and miles of autumn color in Albuquerque is to take the tram to the top of Sandia Crest. Standing more than ten thousand three hundred feet above Cibola National Forest, this peak offers a panoramic view in autumn that is simply stunning. You can also drive to the top of the mountain on Sandia Crest Road.
If you like to do your leaf peeping a little closer to the ground, hiking in Cibola National Forest will fill the bill...Read More
A Category is a subset of a Section. Content Items belong to Categories; Categories belong to Sections. The only exception to this hierarchy is Static Content, which exists outside of the Sections > Categories structure.Read More
Built in 1929 by the Santa Cruz Irrigation District, the dam is 535 feet across and 90 feet deep at the overflowing spillway. The lake covers 121 surface acres with water in the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, providing recreational opportunities for anglers, picnickers, campers, and boat lovers alike.
Santa Cruz Lake Recreation Area is located on public land managed by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM)...Read More
A Category must be empty of all Content Items before it can be deleted. A Section must be empty of all Categories before it can be deleted. Remember, in Mambo, when you delete an item, it moves to the Trash Manager. To delete it permanently, you must go to the Trash Manager and delete the items a second time; only then can you delete the related Category / Section.Read More
According to a notice published in today’s Federal Register, the PEIS will examine the environmental impacts of boosting geothermal leasing in areas with high potential for near-term exploration and development of geothermal resources. If deemed appropriate by the PEIS, the BLM will amend the land use plans in those areas to allow for expanded leasing.
“The BLM is sitting on the largest supply of geothermal energy in this country, and it is time to launch an aggressive program to develop those resources,” said BLM Acting Directo...
A simple question with a complex answer! It is complex because security issues arise from a variety of sources: your code, your server, the other things running on your server, the users, etc. While CMS Webs itself is relatively secure, you may still experience problems if the server is compromised or if a user gives up a password. The basic steps you should take however include:
- Do not unnecessarily leave directories open with CHMOD set at 777 (configuration.php in particular should be set to chmod 644)
- Delete your old installation directory (don’t just rename it!).
- Implement HTTP access controls for your admin login.
- Make all your admin passwords at least 8 characters and containing symbols and numbers as well as letters.
There’s more that you can do, but it is outside the scope of thi...Read More
The rule is a categorical exclusion for land under lease that has already undergone environmental analysis consistent with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) guidelines. The additional analysis previously required by a new oil-and-gas exploration and development application took a minimum of six months. With the new rule, an application can be processed much faster unless there are extraordinary circumstances such as the presence of threatened or endangered species or their designated habitat, wilderness areas, inventoried roadless areas, wetlands, and archeological or historic sites...Read More
