  1. Hi Guys, Got some bad news that Val, aka Mad Scientist on this board passed away of Friday. He had a bad case of food poisoning and then had a stroke that killed him on Friday. Val and I worked together at the company I manage now along with his girl. They left many years ago to their grow their own business. He was well liked R.I.P.
  2. It wasn't a great deal cheaper. It saved my guys from having to drive an hour each way though. I also think it helped for them to take the class and test in a familiar environment and on our equipment in our yard. Though it was a little hectic shutting down most of our installers and service people.
  3. We had a company come out and certify 10 of our guys. 5 passed and I had to send the other 5 and 1 new hire down to Miami to pass the parts they failed (mostly the math part of de-rating jib booms). All 11 now are certified. Then in 5 years we have to re-certify. But, my understanding it will be a much easier process.
  4. Early trucks. http://www.artsignfl.com/component/phocagallery/category/15-our-history
  5. LOL, I learned to drive on a 100 Skyhook. We walked the ladders every day with our hands full. I worked on pick boards set on the back side of 40' I frame extension ladders. I didn't work in a basket truck till 2003. LOL
  6. They should put a manual descent control on those " "window washing mechanisms" motors.
  7. Gary, are you confusing the NEC's three year code cycle with UL? The 2011 NEC drops the bonding requirement for LEDs. Saying that a AHJ can make up more stringent codes scares me. Our code does not allow an inspector to issue a red tag without a specific code section listed as being violated. What? Like the inspector would rather see a #12 bond for secondary rather than #14? So using the same logic a cop could give you a ticket for doing 32mph in a 35mph zone because he feels 30mph is safer? How about no! LOL
  8. No, can you tell me about your experiences with them? Do you get labels just that same as UL?
  9. Any thing new on listing agencies?
  10. Really sorry to hear of Jim's passing...
  11. I'd have to say no. If even a quarter of Brushy Bill's claims were true his life would be remarkable. If he was arrested in Kansas City as being suspected of being a dead outlaw there should be a record. In what capacity was he in Buffalo Bill Cody's show? Both Frank James and Cole Younger were in the show. I've held the jewelry box Cole made for the sheriffs daughter after his arrest at for the Northfield raid. Who was he when he worked for Judge Parker? Went to Cuba as a rough rider? Had his own Wild West Show? Fought for Poncho Villa? Didn't mention all the other stuff. Mr. Robe
  12. I'm not going to even ask if there is a free trial period...
  13. What software do you use to manage production, installation and service?
  14. I am into to hunting, fishing, camping, off road riding, trying to learn native plants and there uses and other wilderness living skills. You know like making fire with no tools or minimal tools, making shelter, procuring potable water, navigation using various methods. Hunting in South Florida is tough on public land. Archery starts in July and you are in swamp mostly. So, the temperature and humidity both hover in the high 90's. LOL Gators are plentiful though and we always fill our tags using rod and reel from the bank. My son sits a top of an 8' while waiting for a means to dispatch
