Re: Vista Permission Problems

cool.. don't forget the info as you will be needing it for Windows 7 also. I've been running W7 since December and I'm running the RC on 9 different computers right now. I've had virtually ZERO problems with it and it is faster, better and runs every single thing I've thrown at it and believe me, in...

Re: Vista Permission Problems

This was a problem for me also. Unfortunately, I got rid of all my XP computers over 2 years ago and have been using Vista exclusively, until Windows 7 Beta was made available. http://networking.nitecruzr.net/2006/12/windows-xp-and-vista-on-lan-together.html There may be something in here that will ...

Re: 2009 June 6-7, Naperville Kite Festival

great festival, great time with everyone. Saturday was a slow and chilly start. Winds did finally pick up in the afternoon and we had a great time flying. We got RevChris and Jynx in the mix and it was just fun.. Elie and Maggi ended up kicking Mike Stephensons butt late in the day and all I can say...

Re: 180 GO! in Summer 2009 issue of Kiting

There's a photo of the team on page 23 in the article on the HB kite festival. We also get a brief mention in Ben's region 12 article. Why don't we get mentioned in our own Region 6? 'Cause we don't send photos or text about IKE or 180 GO! to Barb. We gotta fix that :oops: We need an official photo...

Re: Newb

It took me a little while to figure out that I'd managed to tangle the heck out of the lines when I wrapped the kite up last weekend, but once I got that figured out, -C When I started, I'd spend more time laying my lines out and untangling them than I did flying. I knew I had to fix that one. I re...

Re: Newb

Thanks for all the warm welcomes - this is great. :) Hi to all of you! I'm really excited about flying again. I know that a lot of folks will be out in Pontiac for the festival - is anybody going to be flying locally (meaning Cook or Lake Co)? Any suggestions on where I could go to fly that I won't...
