Recommended Posts

by the way there was a great article on skydive arizonas website about a year ago but now i can't find it. anybody know what i'm talking about and know hwere it is?

if you're interested in learning about canopy flight in all aspects try going to these links. if you have questions about what you're reading maybe some people will chime in and help out.

The greatest part about the Army is that I can't figure out how to make a few clickys but they'll give me a helicopter to fly in a heart beat. My job rocks.

Actually I'd love to switch jobs with you. But making something clicky is pretty easy.

1) start with the url tag:

(url)

2) end it so that it's a properly formed url:

(url)(/url)

3) Add the text you want people to see:

(url)hey check this out, it's cool(/url)

4) Add the actual link in quotes in the first url tag:

(url "http://www.afn.org/skydive/sta/highperf.pdf")hey check this out, it's cool(/url)

Note: finally replace the "("s and ")"s with "["s and "]"s.

In order not to mess up the browser and how you viewed this message, I had to use "("s and ")"s to not have malformed markup tags in this message instead of the normal "["s and "]"s.

Here are your original links and if you wanted to actually view the links, just hit the "Quote" reply DZ.COM button and you will see the actual syntax used to make something clicky.

Oh and I've love to have your job flying helicopters. My job (a software developer) can suck at times. As long as my employers don't over work me, it can be a cool job when things work. But it's a shitty job when they don't


Try not to worry about the things you have no control over
