  1. Same thing on iPhone today.

    Clickjacking via malicious Javascript.

    You can disable it by disabling Javascript, but that cure is almost as bad as the problem. since the site uses a lot of legitimate Javascript.

    Bikeforums.net went through this crap a year ago, and finally stamped it out. The problem is that websites often use ad-brokers, and the ad-brokers don't even know the trash is being slipped in.

    Not functionality, but an observation: The tab for the "Dropzone" page at the top of my browser just shows an "empty page" icon. Any plans to put something prettier there?

    I believe what you are missing is known as the "favicon".


  3. This crap just started this morning.
    A years ago, bikeforums.net was plagued with the identical garbage until they finally stamped it out.
    Note that it is triggered by HTTP_USER_AGENT string, so it does not show up on a desktop.

    Mile-Hi pilot Andrew Hill testified during the trial ( CQS vs. Mile-Hi Skydiving) that he was in the skydiving plane when Mile-Hi owner Frank Casares intentionally harassed our home



    Why was Andrew Hill fired from Mile-Hi Skydiving? (Assumption on my part.)



    Gear-up landing with one of MHS's King Airs.

  5. You are flying a plane with a 60mph stall speed.
    Your airspeed is 75mph.
    You are flying into a 30 mph headwind.

    You make a 180 turn, then level out pointing downwind.
    (Altitude & airspeed remain constant).
    Will you stall?

    Have you ever known of anyone landing unconscious, or otherwise unable to control a reserve parachute upon landing? Did they survive and how badly were they hurt?



    Years ago, I was directly behind a woman in the door who was part of a 4-way launched off the plane. (IIRC there were 8-10 of us in total on the dive). During the launch, her right shoulder was dislocated. She detached herself from the 4-way and pulled the reserve high. IIRC she was just using the left arm to make left turns, and landed w/o a flare. On landing, she fractured a femur.

    This will be a CQS scrote renewing the attack.

    The editor needs to close this correspondence.



    Yes, just another proxy-complainer for Gibbs. Since she doesn't even live in Longmont, (or even near an airport), she uses grumps who actually have a Longmont address to make complaints.
    According to some googling, this guy is in his 60's and lives 1.5 miles South of the city limits, (the airport is on the West side), which puts him 4 miles from the airport.

    Ah--so that's the history.
    Well--she should have quit while ahead.



    There was another great whine she had:
    She was complaining to Centennial Airport, 36 miles away from her home!
    Why?
    Because a twin turbine cargo flight, (originating out of Centennial), was cruising over her house at 10,000' in the middle of the night. She even posted a Youtube video of her and her husband listening to it, and talking about it. They had to hold their breath while recording it, because their breathing drowned out the faint sound of the plane.:S
    She took the video down.
    Damn, I wish I had saved a copy of it.

    I'm looking at the map, and I don't think I've ever seen us go 6 miles south of the airport when flying up to altitude.
    And wouldn't the boulder airport be more of an issue for her then--they don't have a drop zone. Why did she only sue the skydiving operations?



    The first DZ she went after was operating out of Boulder airport, and jumpers were landing in an open field East of her. After successfully shutting down that one, (based on the field not being zoned for such use), she took aim at MHS.

    ...and assuming her family hasn't lived there for generations, why move close to an airport if you know you hate airplane noise? And why on earth focus your complaint on skydiving exclusively???



    She is 4 miles East of Boulder airport, and 6 miles South of Longmont airport.
    That does not meet my definition of "close", and I live 3 miles from Rky Mtn Metro, (which I don't consider to be "close").

  11. Gibbs paid the judgements in December of 2015.

    When a judgement is paid, a "Satisfaction of Judgement" document is created.
    If go to this website, you can search for court documents: https://recorder.bouldercounty.org/countyweb/disclaimer.do

    Search for "Gibbs Kimberly" and you get the results shown in the attachment.
    Here are the payment amounts verified in the "Satisfaction of Judgement" docs:
    03490629: $47,984.41
    03490628: $6,277.50
    03490627: $67,791.05
