Hello from Sonoma County, CA

Hello, All.

I was an early visitor to the XL-1 Watchdog back in the days when the website was frame based. I really enjoy the forum.

I worked in the Hi-Tech industry (Silicon Valley) for several years. I started as a hardware/software instructor, then moved into sales force training through distance learning and web based training, and then on to technical writing and illustration.

I bought my XL-1 in '98 and used it for different projects here and there. In December of 2002 I decided to take a year off to concentrate on video production.

My current project is working with the Sonoma County Sheriff's Rescue Helicopter Unit. I film, edit, and package all of their live training exercises and have been able to do some interesting work with remote cameras on and inside the helicopter. I have also been onboard to film several rescues and air support missions that have turned out very well.

This unit has a compelling story that makes them unique among the other law enforcement aviation units in the country. My ultimate goal is to put together a package about the helicopter unit to sell to Discovery Wings. I'm a fan of the channel, but frankly "The History of the Luftwaffe" and "Flying Boats" are starting to get on my nerves.

You can see the site I created for the project at http://www.henry1.com. You can also see my hi-tech work related site at http://www.ericlian.com.

I prop up what I have left of my savings by doing a little writing, illustration, and web site renovation work, and by selling the equipment and software I no longer use on eBay.

I always have my eye out for interesting work. If you have some, please feel free to contact me.

Wow, your henry1 site is pretty cool, Eric... very nice!

Nobody is supposed to remember the Watchdog as being frame-based!

I can certainly agree with you about DW's programming... they could really use your project, in my opinion. It's great to have you with us,
