  1. It isn't working at all for me. IE runs and then says page cannot be displayed. You still working on this Dave? I loved that sight, bummer it is down. "... and I'll jump off that bridge when I get to it...."
  2. I just got a Skype phone finally. I got a GE which has two cordless phones and bases. So I like how I am not "wired" to the computer. Also the phones can be used in dual mode where you can use Skype or a traditional land line. I don't have a home phone so I paid the $30 a year to get my own phone number through Skype. Seems to be working ok. Bummer is you have to have high speed internet the computer turned on and the software running. Other than that it sure beats paying another home phone bill. I already have to pay a cell phone bill each month. DBR "... and I'll jump off that bridge when I get to it...."
  3. I bet being a porn star would eventually lose its apeal. My job isn't that boring, it just was/is until I am there long enough for them to dump a crap load of work on me. Right now I am still doing training and "trying to learn the operation." I forgot about ebaum's world! I bet it is blocked too though. They block MySpace and Facebook as well as any game or video site. But the don't block ebay. Go figure? DAVID "... and I'll jump off that bridge when I get to it...."
  4. Well I just started a new job as a production engineer and I haven't touched the production floor more than twice... go figure. So what do you all do to kill time? I used to always play games on www.teagames.com and www.addictinggames.com but they block those at work. Now I mainly just play old school Nintendo games on an emulator I downloaded years back to my USB drive. They can't block that! That little jewel save me in college more than once from boredom! And yes, I know we all just love the forums. At least they aren't blocked at work.... "... and I'll jump off that bridge when I get to it...."
  5. I have used photobucket a bunch in the past few years. Too bad I mainly used it for hosting pics for eBay. They have an uploader software called Flock. It works pretty good. The albums can be made private or public. The ads on the screen can be distracting at times. I like it best because you can select the photos you want and then click a generate HTML button. They will give you like 4 different choices for HTML code. That was good for me to just select the pictures I wanted and then make them HTML for my eBay auctions. All photo sites are about the same. But now since you informed me... I have to move my Yahoo pics :( "... and I'll jump off that bridge when I get to it...."
  6. I am on there. Then again I joined when I was still in college a few years back. It is nice to keep in touch with friends. It is definetly "Stalkerbook" for sure. I must admit I would look at pretty girls from my school. Then I would be at the bar going, "Where do I know that girl from?!" I like it more than MySpace because I don't get 100's of spam from it. It has better groups and search features. I agree it has gotten more commercialized now. Anyways, you can add me as a friend, just make sure you put a message in the add saying you are from dz.com or else I will be like stalker, no friend for you! Search dbrutherford at West Virginia University and you should get me. DAVE "... and I'll jump off that bridge when I get to it...."
  7. Is 700' enough? If you are going to build one, I say build one as tall as you can get! You can always have platforms every 50 feet. I always dream of building a BASE Jumping park. You could have all 4 objects. I like the idea of having clifts with "soft walls" and hooks where if you have an off heading and wall strike, you won't get slammed and the hooks will catch you. Heck a bunch of people on the list went in from wall strikes. Just my $0.02 DBR "... and I'll jump off that bridge when I get to it...."
  8. Here is a video clip from a friend of mine from one of the Jet Ski forums I frequent. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jc9ZkoFqgiA Pete is a bad ass on his X2 Jet Ski and apparently on the kite tube as well. I know I want to try one, who else does? lol I guess the fun police are out in full force. Pretty soon you won't be able to blow bubbles while chewing gum. "... and I'll jump off that bridge when I get to it...."
  9. That is some cold water. I had a Human Factors Engineering course in college and I remember the professor saying the same thing. At that temperature, your heat is wicked out of you body too fast for you to replace it. I believe at temps a little higher than this, you are better off not to swim but to just float until help gets to you. I wish condolences to family and friends. "... and I'll jump off that bridge when I get to it...."
  10. That crap makes me cringe! I have spent the last 4 years of my life hearing about Six Sigma but never a profesor reallying explaing it. I guess that is why Industrial Engineers get a bad rap. Good thing I doubled up and got a Mechanical Engineerign degree too! "... and I'll jump off that bridge when I get to it...."
  11. That is a pretty sweet bridge indeed. I wonder how tall it is and how tall from the top of the supports. 200 way, nah I saw 300! Out there on the ends we could have TARDS jumping. "... and I'll jump off that bridge when I get to it...."
  12. There was an episode on the discovery channel show "Impact Stories" about him. He jacked his knew/leg real bad but he was on there talking about it. DBR
  13. I am waiting to see Marta's moving truck jump. It will be on an upcoming episode according to their website. DBR
  14. http://people.howstuffworks.com/ninja.htm I couldn't resist.
  15. I was watching Super Cross the other day and it showed another jump. They were racing in Atlanta so I am assuming it was inside the Georgia Dome. Does Miles have a running gig to BASE Jump at all the Super Cross races? During the race of the Houston jump, it barely showed a parachute land. Then there was a breif shot from his helmet cam. I knew it was this jump since I read it here first and saw the You Tube videos. DBR
