    WE DO NOT USE CHEST STRAPS.

    Ours are big enough to hold the bloody pack on.

    Doesn't hurt that I have been in turnouts since the day I was born.
    Ok, now I quit.

    THAT mental picture is WAY TOO MUCH INFORMATION.

    I was there when Adam was born (My Son ya Plonker, not the guy from the best selling book), and that is a nasty image.
    Psychiatrists state 1 in 4 people has a mental illness.
    Look at three of your friends, if they are ok, your it.

    Man that was almost as hard as getting into the FD.

    Waiting and waiting....

    But seriously folks... I have two computers and one is used for business and by my friends and the other for personal use. Well the personal use one broke. My dad fixed it yesterday. I am using it for the first time today and I think because the other member (a FF and friend) never signed on here that is why it recognized me as the primary user. I am no longer just a guest in your firehouse but a member. Oh the joy of belonging. : )

    hmmmmm last night meathead1 was a guest also, I believe, and now he is a member this afternoon. Could it be I am wrong about the computer thing? I will sign on on that computer in a minute and see. Maybe it was the WT needing to change our status after all.

    The downside of not being a guest is that you have to help out with the chores now !

    There are numerous bugs here on the forums. The "Guest" versus "Registered" thing is one of them. The forums don't care about what account is logged in a PC, unless the user has it set to remember who they are... and if that was the case, all you do is click "Logout" on the forums, and then type in your name and password.

    It really was just the WT not fixing it.

    Oh. PS: Here are a couple shots of me and my girlfriend out my family's lakehouse up on the VT/Canada boarder.

    Thank you Shawn.

    I was starting to get a complex. Just kidding.

    I knew there was possiblity that I would remain guest status forever and I had accepted it, so when I saw I could edit, it was a unexpected suprise. : )

    Let the fun begin.

    I'm sure you would be happier if you got a pound every time a US FF said that.
