  1. I dont think it's a reasonable explaination at all. In the question posed previous, an incomplete cut loop can (from what has been shown here) go undetected for quite a considerable time. enough time for at least another jump to be made on the system, whilst it reads NO Error. You are not now, nor will you ever be, good enough to not die in this sport (Sparky) My Life ROCKS! How's yours doing?

  6. It gets a little warm but nothing horrible. None of the staff leave from the tunnel for the whole summer, maybe regular short vacations here and there. Get a hold of Jason Peters, I guarantee you won't regret it! More on that, if you are tall and lanky then Jason is your man, cause he is too (regardless he's one of the Top guns) But also ask after Steve Curtis or Ray Kubiak, 3 of the most accomplished tunnel gods about
  7. I've heard a few people say that. I have a hard time believing that g-forces can be accelerated high enough under canopy, as to not allow the average jumper to lift (or especially) flex their arms enough to reach their cutaway. Until I see or read proof... I call BS. For those who knew the gentleman please forgive me, but i cant rememebr his name. A guy was jumping one of the ultra small canopies a few years ago (46ft i think), direct deployed off the door, He had line twists, he spun a couple of times, within about 2 or 3 revolutions he had blacked out. Unfortunately he spiralled in and died There is a thread on here somewhere about it . You are not now, nor will you ever be, good enough to not die in this sport (Sparky) My Life ROCKS!

  19. The regs. require he list any defects he finds, they make not mentions of repairing said defects. Sparky (c) Each certificated parachute rigger who packs a parachute shall write, on the parachute packing record attached to the parachute, the date and place of the packing and a notation of any defects he finds on inspection. He shall sign that record with his name and the number of his certificate. More over, the customer may well have been informed of said holes and opted to not have them dealt with, fir what ever reason. If the rigger deems it is NON-air worthy they can refuse to pack it and state so on the card, cant they?

  25. I hate apple with the best of them, and I own an iPhone 4, a Mac Mini and a macbook... gotta know the enemy. Setting up two ipods to sync different playlists isn't rocket surgery, if shah can't figure it out... I'll explain it to him. I just refuse to help most people when they haven't put forth the effort to try to figure it out themselves. He's an engineer, he'd better be able to sort it.
