BladenOnline had a little down-time yesterday, technical difficulties.  The most frustrating type for those in charge, means you must depend on someone far-away to correct the problem.
Often said, technical difficulties with BladenOnline and years earlier at WBLA, I do not miss.  One of the most difficult situations to deal with at WBLA, while I was in charge, was the light out on the top of the tower.  You have a short time to notify FAA authorities because it is in the flight path of the airport, and a short time to correct, and it was expensive. How much would you charge to climb that tower and replace a bulb?  Not on my resume’.
