    Treestuff's New Website

    Yes, they did take care of that. No, I am not yet a splicer, and I agree with you, I should already be one. I don't know exactly what it is that is holding me back. Probably it's mostly reading about the trials and tribulations a lot of the splicers go through trying to make stuff happen...

    @Tom Dunlap; Ha! Believe it or not, I just now noticed that you weren't kidding, and that you actually changed the words underneath my avatar. Thanks for the laugh. Tim

    Notch Radius Ring

    .....and now, the Rope Runner, correct? I hope you have a good time on it. I was wondering if the Akimbo popping off the tending device is bothering you at all, or if you get on with it just fine? This is probably not the right place for my questions, but I'd love to know which device ends up...

    Compact Bulldog Bone

    @Crimsonking; Unofficial is just fine. No pressure. No losing huge amounts of sleep worrying if I can bear up under the huge responsibility, etc.

    Rope Runner

    @jeremyr80; I did a Bing search for "slic pin manufacturer", and came up with these links, as well as others. They provide a page that allows you to create an order for your own custom SLIC pins. I did not try using the order process yet to see how many they actually require you to buy. I...

    Rope Runner

    Hey, @jeremyr80! I'm not certain, but I think the problem with trying to order from the folks who make the SLIC pins is that they are basically a business to business operation, and in order to get them to make something in a custom fashion you'd have to order in some kind of relatively huge...

    How Small a Diameter is Safe to Climb High (Conifier)

    @sdeese; Something I've never had a need to try was this suggestion by a veteran arborist. He said that if you start to drop with your lanyard around a tree, slamming your palms against each side of your lanyard will cause it to cinch up on the stem, and stop the fall that is in progress. He...

    Jason Smith aka Fuzzy...from Charlotte

    @Tree Girl; Condolences, also. So sad. Please hang in there, and do the best that you can to cope with this horrible loss. It takes time for the pain to lessen, but I believe it will happen eventually. Tim

    Treestuff's New Website

    I can't even log into my account anymore, and I paid the fee for Nick Araya's rope splicing course, which I no longer have access to. I'll probably call them up one of these days to try to get it straightened out. If it doesn't get straight, I'm out the money I paid for the course.

    Sherrill, again

    Thanks a lot, @Brocky! I'll know for the next time. I just placed my first order with these folks yesterday. It seems like a really great outfit, based on first impressions.

    Sherrill, again

    I forgot to ask what you had to do to get the ten percent off? Or is it just automatic? Thanks.

    Tips and ideas for implementing a secretary?

    @SassyRedhead; I neglected to congratulate you on your achievement of turning what was probably intended to be a relatively low-level position into something much bigger, just through your own drive, intelligence, and initiative. Really nice going! Thanks again for posting in this forum. Tim
