    Belly Reserve Deployment

    I am SO glad I never had to do what is in that photo! The sight of that undiapered round just about to get to line stretch is pretty scary! (27 belly wart jumps and 0 malfunctions)

    No idea where the name came from. Maybe an acronym in Danish It was the first audible altimeter produced by Larssen & Brusgaard. Bought my first one in 1981 in ZHills.

    Apple 8 Core Work station!!!

    Re the price point....I saw a post somewhere after the 8 core was announced comparing adecked out MacPro to a similarly equipped Dell...not much difference. The macpro was a bit more expensive but had more storage and a couple of other marginal extras. Looked like a dead heat. But, in both instances, you could buy a nice car for the price.
  7. There may be something on Versiontracker that will help you...I remember seeing software to do this a while ago but can't remember the name....will do a search... Here's the search results for "photo recovery". There are three programs listed...2 of which are might be able to use one of them to get your photo off without paying the shareware fee. Good luck! Saw a reference to a freeware program called Exif Untrasher in one of the reviews of the above's free and has 5 star reviews...give Untrasher a try!

    30 inch Apple Cinema HD display

    Much as it pains me to type this, I have seen reviews of a Dell 30 inch monitors that stated that it was as good or better than the Apple 30" Cinema Display and at a lower price. Of course, I don't know how the prices compare now since Apple dropped the prices on all monitors on Monday August 7th. So, you might check into this.... Whatever you buy you will have an amazing setup to work on. I've only seen one of these things and it's like iMax on your desktop

    MacBook Pro Question

    Just a guess but I bet the Application Support folder is where the XP partition shows up when you are in OS X. I have a ton of apps on my machine and the Application Folder is 3.47 GB, my Application Support folder is 5.92 gb. Having two OSes on your machine is going to chew up hard drive space in a hurry. Can you return it and get a model with the 120 gb hard drive? I have 250 gb on my machine plus two external drives of 60 and 160...and I still plug them up ... with video and photos and music the space just disappears.

    MacBook Pro Question

    I can't find anything on the Apple support site about resizing Boot Camp Partitions. I came across a comment that indicates you can't resize the partition: From Macfixit forums... In reply to: -------- The ability to manipulate data and write a new partition without erasing the data already exists in Boot Camp. I have little doubt that Apple will incorporate this into Leopard. ------- Boot Camp doesn't give you the option to create Mac partitions, only Boot Camp partitions (which then require you to erase and format them as HFS+ partitions). The ability to dynamically resize Boot Camp partitions does not exist. ------------------------------------------ Why don't you look into buying a copy of Parallels? Get rid of the Boot Camp partition and be able to run Win XP without rebooting. If you've installed a ton of Windows programs you'd have to do it all over again but all the free space on your hard drive would be available if you use Parallels.

    Converting RAW images to jpg?

    Before you convert the RAW images to anything else you might want to learn a bit more about head is hurting since I got my new Nikon D70S and had to start learning about RAW. The ability to adjust for shadows, highlights and midtones before converting to another format is very incredible. I have the Adobe Camera Raw and it is very neat to play with the sliders to see how much shadow detail there is and then play with the's like being able to burn in and dodge in film terms and is important that you do that before converting to another file format which will do its own adjustments that you have no control over. I know that there are many on here that can explain this better or point you to good information sources.

    Tandem in CRW?

    I believe it is now a forbidden activity but back before that happened I did a 2-stack with a buddy who had his wife as a passenger. (This was in 1985 I believe...pre-drogue) She was also a skydiver. They docked on me...we figured that if it went to shit they could cutaway. A tandem getting wrapped would be a very ugly thing. --->>>Edited to attach a picture of the jump...sorry for the quality... And to say that one of the photos I took was used as a cover shot for CanPara (CSPA's mag) and it caused quite an uproar....because the tandem pair wasn't wearing head gear...not becasue doing CRW on a tandem might be a bit hazardous

    MacBook Pro

    Here's a review of Aperture 1.1 by Ars Technica. Apple fixed a lot of things this reviewer hated in the 1.0 version. It went from 4/10 to 8/10 in his estimation. Should be a good read for those of you out there that need something like this.

    MacBook Pro

    A couple of recent news articles lead me to believe this isn't true.
  18. Have you applied all patches and updates to both programs? Have you tried using Firefox as your browser? Are there Windows alternatives to using Acrobat to view pdfs? I use the builtin Preview on my Mac as it is tons faster. I find Acrobat takes forever to load and is slow. The only time I use it is when I need to use a fillable pdf form.

    Boot Windows XP on an Intel Mac

    Just saw that on I still want something that will run Windows in a window. I work on Mac accounting programs and use Windows tax programs...I want to be able to look from one program to the other and have them both up at the same time. But this is means that potential switchers that need to use one or two Windows programs now have an option that will run at native speed without emulation....and they can boot into OS X for everything else. They also don't lose their investment in Windows software. Drew, any thoughts on whether Microsoft will release a copy of Virtual PC that will do what I want it to do?

    What are the odds?

    Cool shot. I love the small camera sidemounted on his helmet. Main ripcord on the left main lift web or is that the reserve ripcord? I've never seen a front mount reserve ripcord that wasn't on the front of the reserve itself.

    pc-1 error

    If I understand what you are getting on the screen correctly, I think that it is telling you the heads may be contaminated. If you would like, I can e-mail you a pdf of the PC-1 manual....take a look at page 101, item 7.

    Imac Problem

    A couple of times. Yes. I submit reports to Apple when that happens, in hopes that they will fix what is causing the application to crash.

    powerbook for video editing

    I've only used a Powerbook with the 12" screen and it is very nice but with my middle aged eyes I'd like more screen real estate. As far as duplicating your DVDs.....very easy to do. Put the disc in the drive. Start Disk Utility (found in your applications/utilities folder). Select the disc from the list of drives in the left hand side of the disk Utility window. Click on the Create New Image button. From the drop down boxes, select DVD/CD master and no encryption. Have it make the image and save it to the desktop or wherever you want. After it has created the image, take the DVD out of the drive, and double click on the disk image you just created...which will have a .cdr extension...and mount it. Select it in Disk Utility and click on the burn icon. It will prompt you to put a blank dvd in your drive. Put the blank dvd in the drive, click on OK...and it will burn you a new copy of your dvd. If you keep the .cdr image you can make a new DVD whenever you want.
