    Uber app install keeps coming up.

    I will watch it for a week and see if I can document a trend. Hey thanks for being responsive to the sites issues. It's nice to know the IT guys are active here.

    Uber app install keeps coming up.

    Ok thx. As a side issue about every dozen or so posts I get this when I submit a reply to a post. It doesn't post the reply, and if I backpage everything that was typed is gone. I am resorting to copy and paste before I hit post for fear if it wiping everything I have written. Postes r made from an iPad or iPhone. Spelling and gramhair mistakes guaranteed move along,

    Uber app install keeps coming up.

    IPad Air 2 using safari. When I use this website only it periodically closes and app center opens up and asks me to install the uber app. Does not happen on any other websites.

    Neutral moderator for speakers corner.

    I believe there is a need to add a differently centered moderator for SC. I appreciate Quade, and Billvon's work to moderate there, but having two left leaning moderators(or left of center for sure) in a liberal dominated political forum leads to alot of left wing people getting off with things that the libertarian or right leaning posters get warnings or bans for. It would add a balance to the system I believe. Postes r made from an iPad or iPhone. Spelling and gramhair mistakes guaranteed move along,

    DZ is slooooow ..

    It's about 18 seconds to perform an action on the site. All of my post replies are going 504 3/4 of the time, and saying unable due to maintenance, or traffic problems. A ping to dz.com is 54ms, the trace rt is showing no hiccups across 14 hops. Postes r made from an iPad or iPhone. Spelling and gramhair mistakes guaranteed move along,

    military jumper going civilian

    Same thing I was thinking, if his jumps were all halo jumps he wasn't using a 176 pd lightning, and with 200 jumps he wasn't an instructor. Postes r made from an iPad or iPhone. Spelling and gramhair mistakes guaranteed move along,

    Brake line rubbing silicone bumpers and fraying line.

    I was advised the bumpers were vinyl not silicone bumpers and are sharper on the edge and do not stretch as much. I am going to first replace with silicone bumpers and see if that fixes things. Postes r made from an iPad or iPhone. Spelling and gramhair mistakes guaranteed move along,

    Brake line rubbing silicone bumpers and fraying line.

    In my post I stated that the slider grommets were coming down and slamming on the line attachment points and was damaging them at the slinks. The cloth witch hats that come with them were not helping, so we stepped up to larger silicone bumpers which fixed the line attachment point issues, but now the brake lines are rubbing the silicone bumper.

    Wings

    They are VERY established, and have a LARGE customer base. Wings has been around a long time also. I have never had anything but good experiences with them other than the website being a bit dated. I had to send a rig back due to riser cover issues and it was fixed for free. I have owned 2 wings containers, and would buy again. Postes r made from an iPad or iPhone. Spelling and gramhair mistakes guaranteed move along,

    Brake line rubbing silicone bumpers and fraying line.

    Eq consists of Wings risers, navigator 280, slinks, silicone risers, dacron lines with a total jumps on lines and bumpers about 75-100. Im a big guy with faster openings, I had hard links but they were damaging the slider grommets, so I switched to slinks, and the silicone bumpers. The issue I am having is the brake lines are rubbing and cutting a groove in the silicone bumpers, and fraying the brake lines on openings. Its almost like the lines are "sawing" back and forth on opening. The wear marks line up right where the brakes are set leading me to believe this is only rubbing on opening, especially since when brakes are released the lines do not come close to the bumper at that point. Also some of the outer D lines inside the bumper are rubbing and getting frayed a bit. The only option I can think of is adding a "sacrificial" line of the bigger size (1250lb?)dacron over the top of it where it wears, and bar tacking it in place. This would only slow the problem down not eliminate it. Im not sure if its happening due to assembly or material issues, or my faster opening speed of about 132mph. edit to add the reason we installed the bumpers was due to the slider coming down and damaging the line attachment points at the slink. Mostly on the outer lines on the rears. Any thoughts on what to do? Thanks Postes r made from an iPad or iPhone. Spelling and gramhair mistakes guaranteed move along,
