Man O Man, I never liked running a jack hammer standing on the ground, pretty sure I would not like up in the air. lol

I have a funny story about jackhammers. I worked for a contractor digging swimming swimming pools in the L A area years ago. We dug a pool a day, but on one particular jog we hit solid granite a foot down. We left but a day or two later was told to go back to the same location. When I got there, there was a huge air compressor and 5 jack hammers, the boss ask me if I mind running a jack hammer. I told him no, and he said good, he figured I might, that is when I said BUT, I'm not going to start digging a swimming pool with one. He said yep, that is exactly what I figured.

dynamite? yeah, probably not. I used to be a cable monkey at the phone company, so I'm not really afraid of heights. I AM afraid of falling, though, so.....

There was an opening at the phone company years ago for an antenna climber- I put in for it and got down to the final 4 candidates. My ex (when we were still married) found out and told me to withdraw, but I probably would've gotten the job- "must be able to climb 400' antenna in all types of weather, drive a snow-cat, snow mobile, and 4x4 vehicle in all types of weather." It was in Jackson Hole. Would have been heaven, I thought. Oh well.

Funny you mentioned dynamite. We had to jackhammer 12'6 in that granite on the deep end. The way I understood it, he paid 6 grand more for this with the plan that if that didn't cut it, we would blast it, but it would be another 6 grand on top of it.
Since I was not running a hammer and just running the loader and truck, when they got enough chipped out, I had a LOT of free time, the house owner would take me riding around the neighborhood in his vet, his wife drove a Mercedes. This guy was not doing too shabby for a state trooper.

Well, he wasn't feeling well when I got there Friday. All that frustration and anxiety over losing friends evaporated. I finished up all the welding, just need to drill holes to connect all the track together. I'll post some pics and stuff probably tomorrow- When I get out there today, I'll bolt the whole thing together, level it, and maybe cut a rafter. We'll see.

I just searched youtube and found a sharpening video- I'm going to try that, too.  Here's a post I wrote about the new 30' track I made (which is working great): Log Home Journey

Let me make a post here that all Forestry Forum members can read so you know what kind of guy this bugpeople is.

He came on and broke a rule. Actually a couple of them. He posted a political post in his topic and it was also made only to encourage people to visit his blog where he would be adding content instead of here and sign up for his channels.
His post was removed and he was told why content needed to be here, so if he were to change his interests in the future and remove his blog or photos there, that the contest would still be alive and well here on the forum.

So what does he do, he goes and deletes his posts and photos here that he had posted.  Nice guy eh?  Well, he has been banned, but I've left his username in case you come across him somewhere. Remember, he was a guy that defaced our Forestry Forum.

If you want to share it, share it here. The purpose for this website is not to promote yours. The reason for the content being here, is that I have control over it and it will be here in the future.  If you decide to move or remove your blog, move your videos, delete content because it no longer seems relevant to your life, you won't be deleting Forestry Forum content.

Thanks for clearing up what was going on Jeff.  I kept coming across"hi" and didn't know what to make of it.  I figured someone had deleated their posts.   The way you run this forum is tops.  Thank you. Many times I have went to sites to get a look at something and guess what its not there anymore.  We like it just the way you do it.   Banjo

It's a hassle for me to upload separate photos to this forum since I usually already have them stored on Flickr but I certainly understand why and appreciate the effort you go to to keep all the content on this website. A professional website I belong to for my profession is the same way and it makes sure the archives stay valuable. Since photobuket screwed everyone over last year many forums have had their content gutted. I've learned a ton digging through old posts on this site and it's so nice to always have the pictures available.

Don't bet against Flickr photos or Facebook photos doing the same thing as pbucket one day. Advertising in a warehouse is not a sustainable business model.

Kind of off topic three times over but...

There is no doubt the decision to require images to be local to the forum is the right one.

Been a part of too many forums where past knowledge is lost and posts rendered useless due to image hosting changes.

I'm not much of a web developer and certainly didn't stay at a holiday inn last night, but...

I wonder if there is a plugin for SMF (or could be created) that would allow images to be included in posts from wherever and those images would be automatically added to the users gallery (or a general forum cache).  It would make things easier for the poster.

There could also be a benefit to Jeff as well - by default the image would be loaded from where it originated, saving untold gigabytes in bandwidth.  If the image no longer exists it would be loaded from the gallery\cache.

When image hosting sites disappear totally, it could be blacklisted entirely without losing any images.

All seamless and behind the scenes...

Just an idea...

All of which promotes copyright issues. A photo to be used here needs to be your property or you need to have expressed permission to use it. You can bet your sweet bippy if the copyright police come calling I will give them all the information they need for the person in violation.  Its happened. It does happen. Just finding a picture on line and using it here is very very risky as there are outfits out there that are hoping you use their photo so they can come after you.

I have no wish what so ever to make it any easier for someone to post a photo than it is now. it is not that hard, and if one does not want to take the little bit of time to figure it out, then, we don't need or want to see it. Its worked for 18 years, I see no need to change anything more than I did this past spring.
