    Post New Zealand Earthquake

    I hope our New Zealand friends are OK.

    They just got hit with a 7.3 earthquake off their coast.

    Hope they are OK. That is a really heavy earthquake. The world is actually a small place regarding our passion for simulated aircrafts. We know people from all corners of the world.

    My thoughts are with them too. Been in Japan during a couple milder ones. Not a pleasant experience.

    I want to thank Fox News for that misinformation.... seems it was at or around JAKARTA, Indonesia and had a preliminary magnitude of 7.5 and was centered about 66 miles east of Jakarta.

    I love that site.

    I started looking at a bunch of links on building your own siesmometer. Cool stuff.

    I've read up quite a bit on the Wabash Valley rift system and the New Madrid system. Really ancient stuff.

    The country was nearly split into two in the late Precambrian time where these two ancient fault systems are.
