Aah, a little vacation. Some VERY much deserved Rest and Relaxation for our Webmaster Bill.
A chance to take in the sights and just let the hectic day to day troubles and stress sort of "melt away" for a while.


WHAT A WAY TO START!



Bill, have a good time. Thanks for all you've done.

I wonder if the monorail is running Windows 2000?? If so, it all makes perfect sense

Enjoy the break Bill . If any glitches come up, We'll just blame Electure for it

"melt away"
Scott,

You can say that again!!
It was HOT in there. Too bad that Camera you see had dead batteries ...

Can't wait to see what trouble we can get into in Alaska ...

Bill

P.S.
Does anyone know how I can save that video?
I can't seem to do it.

Looks like he's carrying.... a tool belt? Planning to work his passage, perhaps?

Bill, I've had no luck saving it
The pic above was "captured" by pausing the video and taking a shot of screen with my camera....very low tech.

I've attempted to save it as well... The root web address for the video minus all the ads, bells and whistles is
http://beloint.wmod.llnwd.net/a125/o1/www.king5.com/ki_081906monorail.wmv

If anyone can do anything with it, great

I'm just getting back from a a vacation myself... To our countries, and my 50th State visited! Really smooth and relaxed in Kauai (Another place like Seattle, that once claimed to be the wettest place on earth.)

Waikiki - Stay away, the place is stupid day, or night... I think (Not sure) but may have seen a stabbing from my 16th floor hotel balcany? Hard to tell from that distance.... Not to mention if I had a tool in hand, OSHA would have a harness on me at that hieght even with the 34" rail, but drinking a bottle of wine and watching the sunset is OK.



Bill, hope you have more fun in Alaska....

put on ECN server

So, Bill....

Any pictures of Alaskan wiring installations?

Wonder what they use up there and where it's brought in from.
