    Does this have anything to do with the character set on the server? ... and how the client/browser character sets interact with it? This may be a clue, eh? Back in the IT world there was a time when we went through these things ad nausium ... i.e. all the different character sets on server and client and how they interact, but I don't remember any of it much. Has anything changed on the server? ... and/or browsers?

    Kyle, it was good of you to post this personal experience of yours. I don't like working around big machinery, but I have a much respect for guys like you that do, and in who work in dangerous environments like what you describe.

    ha, thanks again for your direct talk, Mr. Burnham! I guess time will tell. haha, somewhat in my defense, I used to install storm windows in my early 30's, and often worked from a ladder on 2nd story windows. Occasionally I have been near the end of my 28' ladder (with stand-offs), carrying a window I could barely get my hands on both sides of, and -- very carefully -- putting it into position and putting a couple of self-tapping screws into the sides and/or top to hold it in place (sometimes into metal primary window frames which is tougher) so I could relax and reposition the ladder (if necessary) and finish screwing the window in. --- haha, but I wouldn't want to do that now. But I do have a fear of heights .... and while I was installing storm windows (and replacement windows and siding, etc.) HOWEVER... During that time, I often thought that the worst job in the world to have (e.g. if I HAD to do ANYTHING to provide for my family)... would be one of the guys (or gals?) that put up the new billboard signs .... or worse than that... those hardy souls that worked on building a big bridge. ----- at the time I never knew anything about tree climbers and arborists :) And thank you, sir, for your well wishes and all your comments and advice!

    rfwoody replied to a thread Problem with MS461 Idle in Chainsaws!
    Thanks a lot, All, for the great feedback, and advice! Here is "the REST of the story" just to circle back around.... The Stihl rep for my area, K. C. (Casey?) Jones --- from Malvern, Arkansas, Benjo --- said the chain creep sounded like a clutch problem. He had my dealer ship my chainsaw to him. He replaced the clutch (did not charge labor) and sent it back. I have my saw now and it runs great and no chain creep at idle. It was very strange to me that the dealer couldn't get my saw to start when I had it running that day (or day before?)... and therefore replaced the carburetor........ but dealer has been helpful to me over the years so I am just chalking that up to one of those things. Learned 2 things from this (and from you all here): 1) Chain creep caused by clutch problems. 2) The Stihl rep warned about using the 2-in-1 file guides improperly... i.e. bearing down hard on them. ----- what happens when you bear down hard is that the round files will flex and the depth gauge flat file will cut the depth gauges lower than they should be --- thus causing more drag in the wood, thus bogging down more, thus wearing the clutch out faster......... so I learned (when I use the 2-in-1 file guide again) to just apply light/no downward pressure. I have ordered a clutch for my 029 because the chain has been spinning badly on it at idle (and 2 different shops didn't fix it (over a year ago or so)).... therefore I haven't been using it..... so looking forward to replacing the clutch on it to see if it fixes the problem. ANOTHER BIG "TAKE-AWAY".... This whole thing has caused me to see that chainsaw maintenance is not "rocket-science". When I spent 2 hours a day in driving to/from work, my time was scarce and I was always RUSHING between tasks and didn't take time to spend to do things carefully --- I would trade money for time and hired stuff out. -------------- now, I think I will take the time to learn to do this chainsaw maintenance myself. Do you think those chainsaw (inductive?) tachometers from Madsen's are a good enough all purpose tachometer for chainsaws?

    Lots, of little ones, a couple bad ones. I was lucky. Either that or more careful, I think more luck.

    There's a thought! In high tagging areas, just spray Pam on the spots they like, then wash it off on the ride home.
