Westjet received their 100th Boeing 737 a little while ago. It's official tail number is C-GAWS, but I'm not sure how to track it...it has a hash tag on it for the 100th

more just useless trivia than anything


Still the youngest fleet of 737's I believe.

Hello Larry, Just so you know that we pay attention …. that little Miles sure gets around ….




… sorry about the re-post – and no, I don't think “mine” is any more the real thing than your R/C!

BTW – has anyone hear from bobl lately ? … it's been some time, you know.

Twelve hours of Sebring, next weekend. I can't remember the shooter here that went to Petit Le Mans ? I've been to almost every PLM, never Sebring. It is soooo tempting.

Dear Geaux,

That kind of spirit and drive will serve you well my friend, and you are so very right. When I was starting out, heck, when I was 10 years into my pro career, if someone had dropped all the gear I have now on my doorstep, it would have only served to confuse me. Just about every piece of equipment I own is the result of my technique growing to the point I realized what tool I needed to advance a bit further. That progression, as you so accurately noted, is a considerably deeper experience when compared to attending a seminar and walking out all pumped. You cultivate a depth of knowledge and experience that you can draw from and adapt to just about any situation in which you find yourself.

I can't accurately describe the frustration that overwhelmed me in the early years when I was faced with a complex lighting situation. Part of the frustration came from recognizing that there was a shot to be taken, at the same time recognizing that I had not a clue how to harness the volume and mixed light that was bombarding the scene. I can clearly remember standing in a new building on the UT Austin campus and being so frustrated and intimidated by the existing mix of light, and my pitifully inadequate "Novatron" light system. In retrospect, I might as well have tackled the scene with a Maglight What I know now has been hard won for sure, but I know it, and I know every variation of it, and can apply as much or as little of it as a situation might require. Can a good seminar help you in that direction? Sure, but it's the day to day challenges and solutions that really create the kind of confident knowledge base that a commercial shooter really needs.

You are exactly the kind of person I love to help, because you get it. Kind of like that hard working air to air shooter in Austin that keeps hitting them over the fence. Don't ever hesitate to ask, it would be my pleasure.

For our Texas contingent, not sure what access will be like, but some of the MotoGP grid will be taking to COTA Tuesday - Thursday this week.

I had that as a possibility on my calendar, but next week is a continuation of the last week's zoo, and it will take me through Friday and possibly the weekend to wrap it up. The good news and the bad news.

It should be impressive. None of them will be pushing overly hard since it's all just pre season testing, and their regular season starts in 4 weeks so they won't want to get hurt...but even at 90% they're still the fastest people on 2 wheels by a healthy margin.

Booked my lens rental for the trip to MotoGP today. Went with the 500mm F/4, I was thinking of going with the 600, but that's significantly larger, I think the 500 should do it ok anyway. And I've got the whole collection of Nikon Teleconverters.

The iMac saga continues...........I unwrapped my repaired iMac this morning at HQ and it was immediately obvious that the new LCD plate had streaks on it. Kind of like a computer screen that hasn't been cleaned thoroughly. I called my team at Apple and 20 minutes later they had it apart, diagnosing a defective screen, and some contamination caused by doing the repairs in a non clean room environment. My guys asked for a few days to research the problem, but I got the feeling they are going to use the time to configure a new 27" for me. These folks are incredible, and they have a client for life.

I haven't had time to go down there and meet any of the COTA players. Do you suppose we'll have any problem lugging big glass through the gates in April?

Wonder if we can extricate GW from his A36 long enough to join us?
