Good luck with your bad back, it sounds like maybe you have some vagina's growing on it.


It's really amazing what being wrong is doing to you. Most people would simply say "thanks - I learned something" - rather than pile more lies and insults on top of the original lies and insults.

woe woe woe. what was it I was supposed to learn?

I know you've said I'm wrong plenty of times. Did you actually provide the correct answer to something? I must have missed it if you did. Would you mind hitting the quote button one more time so I could see what it was. Please? :wink:

thanks!

btw thank you for the perfect quote example again of trolling for ammo. you managed to completely disregard everything i said with the exception of my 2 childish remarks. bravo!

In other news....

Here is the best of three new Scoprega kite pump models becoming available now- much lighter weight and reliable than before. Just picked mine up yesterday. Great to have the battery not hidden inside the pump anymore.

I like that. It looks like it has an analog pressure gauge - yes? Also looks like it has buttons for low pressure and high pressure stage - instead of automated? I've been asking them for that for a long time.

ETA: I see now that the buttons are simply ON/OFF. I guess I'd still do some modification.

some one said if you can't be arsed pumping then you should take up tidly winks or similar.

here's my thought. i work 3mins from the beach and can have a session in my lunch hour. Anything i can do to reduce set up time willl increase my on the water time for that short session!.

so if i can set a pump or resviour pumping the kite while i throw a wettie on then then i'd saved a few minutes.

And yes a quick lunch hour session is well worthwhile even if its only 30 mins on the water.

Good point. And there's also the question as to why anyone could possibly give a shit how someone else pumps their kites.

The question is moot - because surely no one would be allowed to possess such an awesome weapon.

Have you tried it yet? it looks like it takes a lot longer than the BST 12 kite, no (at least that's what the datasheet says)?
