  1. The new look of dropzone.com for desktop users. No thanks.
  2. Google Chrome users can right click and simply open in Incognito Mode. Thank you for sharing. The future belongs to those of us still willing to get our hands dirty.
  3. What did your instructor/coach tell you? This information is the most pertinent. The future belongs to those of us still willing to get our hands dirty.
  4. Steps for the newbies. 1) Find jumper with a pull out system. 2) Learn how to push a straight pin back under the right side closing flap. 3) Cash check. The future belongs to those of us still willing to get our hands dirty.
  5. Doesn't sound like it. He mentioned the thought of covering the velcro on the rig, and if it was a pull-out the handle would have nothing to attach to and would just be a full time floating pud. In a freefly pud set-up, the attachment to the PC and the BOC pouch would hold the handle in place if you cover the velcro. It wouldn't be as secure, and why it was discouraged upthread. My ex flew (and prolly still does) a pull out wings system. There is velcro involved with wings pull outs. It's quite similar to velcro on a strong dual hawk drogue.

  6. Brand new troll 265 w/ a sail slider off some
  7. I gave up my job as an industrial tailor for the DoD. Thats about 65k additional tax payers dollars that can be used to fight terrorism by bombing civies. The future belongs to those of us still willing to get our hands dirty.
  8. I'd wager they vary HIGHLY from country to country. Higher rates will be found in countries that restrict their citizens from legally arming themselves. The future belongs to those of us still willing to get our hands dirty.
  9. You are three times more likely to be shot by the armed citizen than a LEO if you are a bad guy. For me personally, that number is much higher. The future belongs to those of us still willing to get our hands dirty.
  10. With any luck your company will soon block dropzone.com too. The future belongs to those of us still willing to get our hands dirty.
  11. The chicago wind tunnel http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=chicago%20wind%20tunnel The future belongs to those of us still willing to get our hands dirty.
  12. No one here saw it either. At your experience level, the only advice you should be seeking out is that of your instructors. The future belongs to those of us still willing to get our hands dirty.
  13. I am the true american voter. I have never submitted a ballot. I know how to make 17 flavors of molitovs. My vote is cast under the cover of darkness. My parents taught me long ago to stop talking politics and start discussing tactics. "Peace" The future belongs to those of us still willing to get our hands dirty.
  14. Preaching to us lazy 'mericans over the interwebs is going to bring you nothing but headaches man. Direct action > words The future belongs to those of us still willing to get our hands dirty.
  15. Get a container that fits you, that was made within the last 10-12 years. It's good to buy used as it could get thrashed up in your early jumps. I would also personally suggest getting a container with a closing loop mounted near the bottom of the reserve container so you can fit a wider range of canopies in it as you progress in the sport. But whatever you buy, make sure the colors match your jumpsuit or you're gonna die! The future belongs to those of us still willing to get our hands dirty.
