  1. Well, I guess I can't ask for more than that. Thanks for the information and good luck. I suppose that the ugliness of spam has made anti-spam systems a bit overzealous at times. For example, I can remember McAfee Site Advisor blacklisting subscription pages of (highly technical) mailinglists on the grounds of "receiving lots of e-mails after having filled in an e-mail address". That is of course exactly what such subscription pages are for. Likewise, as long as the dropzone.com mailserver(s) cannot be used as relay(s) for spammers, the domain does not belong on blacklists. Again, thanks for the explanation and good luck remedying the situation. Fonz And five hundred entirely naked women dropped out of the sky on parachutes. -- The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
  2. When trying to send mail today to a familiar address, I received a failure notice: : 173.199.170.19 does not like recipient. Remote host said: 550-"JunkMail rejected - dz.nmsrv.com (dropzone.com) [204.187.14.148] is in an 550 RBL, see Blocked - see http://www.spamcop.net/bl.shtml?204.187.14.148" Giving up on 173.199.170.19. Any thoughts? And five hundred entirely naked women dropped out of the sky on parachutes. -- The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
  3. Possible? I suppose so. Likely? Theoretically Keira Knightley and Natalie Portman could both fall in love with me and not mind sharing It's probably just something internal that goes wrong with Opera when it's kept running for a long time.

  4. Thanks for the suggestion but no, I don't. Registries are a Windows thing and I use something else. However, the login prompts appear to be gone now. I'm still somewhat curious as to what caused it in the first place because it just isn't supposed to happen. My educated guess though, is that it's more likely that some of Opera's internals don't function entirely properly on long continuous runs than that it's the advertiser's fault. Thanks everybody.

  5. Screenie can be found here: http://www.xs4all.nl/~zoefsam/fonz/spamshot.jpg This recently started occurring for *every* page loaded from dropzone.com. Clicking cancel only leads to a new prompt, after cancelling three times the page is finally displayed. Running Opera's Ghostery extension (with "bug" blocking enabled) reduces this to one prompt per page loaded.

  6. Since a couple of days I've been getting login prompts (!) from traveladvertising.com. Initially THREE times for every dz.com page visited with Opera, but installing Ghostery takes it down to "only" one per page. Can this be fixed please?

  7. Nice example Btw: I finally managed to find a reference. The word I was looking for is "beat(ing)", apparently. Thanks, Alphons And five hundred entirely naked women dropped out of the sky on parachutes. -- The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
  8. Hi all, I'm looking for the English word to describe a mathematical phenomenon. When you superimpose two (co)sines of slightly different frequencies (say, y1=sin(9x) and y2=sin(8x) or something), the resulting waveform consists of periodic blob-kind of thingies, the amplitude kinda like a waveform itself. In Dutch, it's called "zweving" which literally means floatation, but I doubt it's called that in English.

    PULL OUT VS. THROW OUT

    Thanks for the info, Bill. With regard to the second point though, could you explain why pull-out is less suitable for beginners trained on throw-out? Is it just unwise to make the transition that early or is there more to it? And five hundred entirely naked women dropped out of the sky on parachutes. -- The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

    PULL OUT VS. THROW OUT

    Myth no. 1: Pull-outs provide somewhat faster openings. Myth no. 2: Pull-outs are less suitable for beginners. Could somebody please play Mythbuster and call "confirmed" or "busted" on these?

    JAVELIN RSL... IMPORTANT, MUST READ

    I wonder where the KNVvL (dutch equivalent of USPA/FAA) stands in this matter. Alphons And five hundred entirely naked women dropped out of the sky on parachutes. -- The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

    Tim Burton's Corpse Bride

    Don't know. But what I do know is that if I wanted to marry a corpse I'd choose Emily over Anna Nicole any day of the week... Anna Nicole as a corpse bride would sure make for a nice song, though. Alphons And five hundred entirely naked women dropped out of the sky on parachutes. -- The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

    Tim Burton's Corpse Bride

    If you had to choose, which character (dead or alive) whould you like to be? I didn't make it a poll because the list of options would be too long. Personally, I'd go for Bonejangles.

    selling main canopy

    The lines and slider are part of the canopy, pretty much everything else belongs to the rig. Toggles, risers, d-bag, bridle, pilot chute, deployment handle, you name it. Think about it. Those components must fit the rig. They are designed to work with a particular rig design and vice versa. Your rig could be equipped with a ZP pilot chute while the buyer's rig is approved for F-111 pilot chutes only (or the other way around). And the pilot chute must fit the rig's BOC pouch of course. D-bags (and containers) not only come in different sizes, but in different shapes too. For example, a Voodoo d-bag probably won't fit into a Dolphin except maybe by (extreme) coincidence. Not so sure about connector links though. They seem pretty universal so you may choose to keep them with the rig or send them with the canopy. Probably works fine both ways.
