    Adding to what Gary said, possibly just trying to log into the account will show a box with a question along the lines of "Forgot your password?". Clicking on that link would get you into the process for recovering or changing a password. The other possibility is trying to remember if you'd written it down somewhere, so long ago. Tim

    pantheraba replied to a thread Husqvarna 390xp in Chainsaws!
    I was working during Katrina on this barn, taking this tree out/off of the structure. My Stihl 290 had gotten dull and they brought me a Husky 395 that an old timer had loaned us for the Hurricane work. As soon as I cranked it and throttled up I knew something very different was going on. The word "Beast" popped into my head. When I started cutting with it that confirmed it really was a Beast. I was amazed at the power (and sharpness) of the saw. Only time I ran that saw but I still remember it 12 years later. I haven't run anything comparable since then.

    There should be a process whereby you can get issued a temporary pswd by gmail...probably have to answer a security question (that you had to set up initially to open the acct.?) When I have had to change a pswd that was the drill.

    Good one, Fiddler! I hope you don't mind if I steal that joke. Too good not to spread around.

    I think people might offer me money just to shut my yap for a few minutes. It's kinda like the old protection rackets the mob engaged in. Pay me money to prevent a migraine headache, sort of thing.

    Wow, Gary, great post! I had never heard of either of the above mentioned items. I did not take time to read through the whole explanation of the Valsalva Maneuver just yet, as it is highly detailed and it is getting late. I need to read through it when I'm fully alert to get the max benefit from it. I thought they said that power lifters use the technique, though. My bet is that the second thing you proposed, respiratory alkalosis, is the correct guess as to what happened to him, as trying to sing hard is exactly the activity he was engaged in. Unbelievable that someone on such a relatively small forum would know the answer to this. Thanks again. Tim

    oh yeah...forgot about the second pre-set line for someone else to come and get me...my bad. I reckon here collectively we are 'safe', with a tinge of 'safe enough' and a serving of 'safer-er' :)

    Interesting... I guess I was 'safer-er' today...cutting out a dead, like two years dead top of a sycamore... 1.Tied into the adjacent elm...base tie SRT...OH NO...not the dreaded base tie!! Yes, because I like base tie and I am cognizant of its limitations and made up my own mind that it is safe enough for me. And my TIP was only about 3"...and one side of the fork was dead at the top...hmmm, got green leaves for most of it, and it went over another branch behind... and I only weigh 116lbs soaking wet...safe enough. 2. second rope lanyard over the 'not quite so dead' part of the sycamore. 3. Wire core lanyard on the dead bit I was felling to keep me in the right position What you reckon...a combination of 'safer-er' and 'safe enough'...?

    Does no-one want to buy chips? Or you just have so much it's unrealistic to try and sell them?

    @TreeMuggs; I hope you had your carpel tunnel syndrome wrist protectors on when you typed all that up! Just kidding! That was a really well written post. I'm going to have to go back now and look at the kind of grief Rico was given; maybe I missed those threads. I hope that stuff isn't the reason he's not still posting here. It seemed like he was really getting on well with the true veterans on this forum. Brian, I'm really, really sorry to hear that you feel inhibited from posting about your work on this or any other forum as a result of this stuff. I hope it was never I who got on you like this. Being able to read what the most highly skilled veterans do for a living, and how they do it, is the big appeal of the forums. I surely hope this kind of thing did not happen to you while posting in the Elders forum. Perhaps that part of this forum would be a "safe" place, relatively, to post whatever you feel like posting. If you feel as though I ever get out of line in this regard, please feel free to tell me to shut my yap. Apologies if I ever got out of line with you in the past. Thanks for your thoughts, TreeMuggs and Brian. Tim

    My first thought was maybe related to the Valsalva Maneuver...it makes you light headed after hard exertion (like bench pressing and holding your breath...a no-no). It does happen to singers...also respiratory alkalosis...if you want to read further https://music.stackexchange.com/questions/32015/physical-problems-during-singing/32037

    It does make you wonder what could have caused that. Hopefully it was just a low probability fluke, and not any byproduct of his medical issues.

    Tim_B. replied to a thread Monkey Beaver Saddle in Gear Forum
    I just finished reading this whole thread start to finish. Thanks to Rico if he ever comes back, for keeping this thread alive and for his unique insights as an big-wood veteran climber and also as a Treemotion Light owner. It sounds like everyone that has tried this saddle just loves it. It would be nice to hear again from some folks that gave an early review of the saddle after only owning it for a short while, to see their impressions of it over a longer time period.
