  1. Having been an instructor in the army, a skydiver and being a keen fisherman, I assure you I can curse with the best/worst of them. My original comment was aimed specifically at the use of profanity on the back cover of a book. That was all.
  2. <Quote> "As for what Erroll said, he's right. While I often find it to be a useful word, not everyone appreciates the word fuck. Using it on the back cover description might drive away potential buyers. </Quote> <Quote>"Pity you needed to resort to obscenities to sound cool.</Quote>
  3. Indeed. Pity you needed to resort to obscenities to sound cool.
  4. The serial spammer in the DB Cooper thread has now started posting disgusting pictures and one has no warning that these will appear - very embarrassing in the workplace. Until he has been neutralised, please consider disabling inline pictures. Asking us to ignore the user is only useful after the fact, and he also creates new user IDs all the time. Perhaps a waiting period before new users are allowed to post inline pictures might alleviate the problem too?
  5. Alas.... I have been getting timeouts again all day. Only managed to connect now (6:45 PM SA time)
  6. Have not seen it again since this morning - thanks!
  7. I have been getting these timeouts since last night (Sunday). I use the internet a lot and have not seen this with any of the many other overseas hosted sites I visit. (I am in South Africa.)
  8. We called it an ADVON when I was in the military. This was an advance party going to do a recon of the area and what was about to take place....but hey, maybe they do things different nowadays. Additionally, Nixon's brother was in the Seattle around the time of the hijacking. My point is, why were these people in this area around the time of the hijacking. More importantly, why didn't anyone ever question any of these people. Tough crowd.
  9. There is the old joke that you should stick your alti/dytter/shoe up your *ss. You'll be the subject of speculation around the bonfire for many years to come.
  10. Your contribution to the cause has indeed been yuge. (You should never post this in Speaker's Corner - you might just get confused with someone else.....)
  11. Correct. He and another jumper had originally planned to jump from much higher than the main load, and jumped 10-20 minutes after the main load.
