This week I got notice that my provisional patent for the Inline Flintlock ignition system has lapsed, so this technology is now in the public domain and all are free to use it, or ignore it, as they see fit. If you do decide to experiment with it and need a few pointers, just ask. No sweat. And on a related note -- the firm "Invention Home" was pretty much a waste of money in this process. Can't recommend their services, I'm afraid.
Minor updates to the JFK assasination research this week. I will weed back through those pages later on. For the moment, they are essentially complete and include an accurate timeline of all shots fired in Dealey plaza during the assassination -- a claim that I believe no one else can actually back up. Then again, all amateur JFK researchers feel this way, so -- you be the judge.
