Re: spell checker

or in my case, I tend to leave words out when typing. They are in my head but not on the page. Maybe if I had a USB port in my forehead that I could connect to the PC or something. Actually, probably blue-tooth would better as wireless would be easier. But, oh man, with wireless I'd have to worry ab...

Re: COOLNESS

My daughter used to love being pulled down the field.
I actually had football shoes with cleats when I first was learning to control a 6 stack without being pulled away.
I'm more of a contol guy than butt surfer :-) I would like to buggy some day though.

Re: Great Lakes Kite Festival

that's great. Some of the power kiters get there on Thursday, the day before the actual festival is supposed to start. Last I heard, Ben from Revolution was planning on bringing a buggy and showing up early. During the festival it's kind of crowded for any power kiting except for surfing out on the ...

Re: New Features

all the new features are an improvement, thanks babbman. Well, with the exception of the "similar topics". I haven't found it useful and think it might be marginally confusing to newbies. What do the rest of you think?

A big welcome to you from me as well. All the way from Tennesee!
We'll have to find a regional festival (or make one of our own) so we can meet our far flung members!

Re: * CLEAR RIPSTOP *

The transparent material used in kites is mylar. It's not cheap though Hector. You can find it at KiteBuilder and at Hang-em High fabrics At hang-em high, she calls it "clear film". Look at Cobra or TriSpi films on the hang-em high page. These materials are used in sail boat sails, just li...

A friend of Fern's showed it to her and Fern thought of you two guys right away. So I'll pass the "thanks" on to Fern.

Yeah, well, since we don't have cable, there's nothing on TV and I have to be productive in some other way. :-)

Re: Short Quad Line Sets

I think personal taste has a lot to do with it.
Having said that, I think anyone can get used to 50' very quickly and 35' feels short, but flyable to me.
When they fly indoor, they are flying the same sized kite on 15' or less.

Re: 120' lines

I think both Ken and Babbman have both bought 1000' bulk line from Dave. Maybe they would sell you their extra line. Or you could pay them to make you up a lineset. Or perhaps, what might be more your way of doing things, maybe you could trade some computer hardware/expertise for a line set.
