Chimayo New Mexico Vacation

Chimayo New Mexico Vacation Rentals

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...

White Sands New Mexico Vacation

White Sands New Mexico Vacation Rentals

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...

Albuquerque New Mexico Vacation

New Mexico Vacation Rentals

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...

How do I secure my CMS Webs site?

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...

Forest Service Publishes New Rule For Energy-Related Permit

The Forest Service today announced a new rule that permits it to respond quickly to applications for oil-and-gas exploration on Forest Service land already under federal leases.

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...

Ranch Becomes Part of the Little Missouri National Grasslands

Traditional uses such as livestock grazing, oil and gas development, and hunting will continue...

Can I show different users different content?

Within limits. The CMS Webs User Manager currently only supports a few levels (“groups”) of users. You can show different content to different groups, but you cannot show each individual user a unique set of content. Put another way, every user in the group will see the same content as the other users in the group. If you really need this functionality, there are some third party components which add additional flexibility.
