....You started the insult comments

I'd prefer you just keep bringing up my old posts...

I get a kick out of them, and to do it myself would be pretentious ...

get to work, bitch, go fetch , and thanks for being you. ..

I should, Lord knows he/she's got it coming:

first he/she makes up stupid ass posts and posts my user-name as the author of same> (clearly indulging in fraud)

Now this old post thing threat, looks like a weak ass attempt at blackmail to me > (also a most despicable crime)

However, I'm ok with it as long as he/she keeps stepping in the ol' tar bucket...as it were (smile)

and by bringing up my old posts we get a chance to revisit what I considered to be the worthy topics from the past...

sure some things change, but many things, these things remain the same...

It blows me away that it ever came to this. Seriously? We need to warn people to be sure to rig their kite correctly? Anyone who has done this incorrectly should not be allowed to drive, walk down the street, or have children, and many other things equally or more offensive.
Kites usually come with manuals right or is that something new?
Maybe this is a bit harsh, I was not around during the pioneering days but it seems like such a simple concept... Inside lines to the inside lines, outside lines to the outside lines...it's not the hard....

To this day, kiting remains an international endeavor...

so anyway you look at it you still are going to have the language hurtle...

my system is simply to attach the front lines only then clear the rears...

a self checking method---a built in safety check...

some things change, some things like rigging do not...

do it wrong and you're likely to pay the price..

I've tested your method, it works perfectly provided you can identify the outside lines from the inside lines. Your method is dependent on some sort of kook proofing, which is not consistent from kite to kite... Either way if you get to the bar and run out the outside lines you'd be an idiot not to notice you have connected the wrong lines.. But if there are people out there kiting that can't see the difference then maybe your method is not right for them... Although if that is the case then they should stick to something more simple like making jello.

hi,

I suggest one just mark the rear lines---hook up the unmarked ones to the front and clear the rears....

the marks are up to you...

I cut the tips off plastic pens for markers--- no fading that way---- kite pigs were different color cord....

cheers

think colored beads....
