    Ethics in Business

    I may be just be a grouchy old bastard....but I rarely am polite to telemarketers. When I think about how marketing lists are sold and resold I would be amazed if most of the larger call centers do not have some type of ratings system where the more polite and longer you are the better you are...

    What is up with the ad's?

    I always did look at the ads in just that manner (beneficial and supportive of the site), and have used them to make purchases in the past. That said for me the animated adds are not something I focus on as they are mainly distracting not inviting....however I am probably a lot older than the...

    What is up with the ad's?

    This kind of thing (increasing and animating ad space to increase returns) can have a reverse effect. When the adds make the webpage hard to concentrate then people will make various adjustments. Some may just not spend as much time here, others like me will find a simple work around. I used...

The first thing I found was that small hitchcords bound terribly....but I see you are using 10mm which...

    Do you tune this way?

    Agreed, I have recovered numerous hard drives by opening the cover and just giving them a good smack to get the platters to spin or the arm to swing.

    Any SRT canopy anchor that's rescue "retrievable/release-able"?

    I have only climbed a few times on my own property (old guy with a late mid life crisis) and was always nervous about getting hung up or hurt and needing rescue. The problem was that when climbing other than calling 911 I only had my roommate (older female) to rely on for rescue if I got hung up...
