hello all, I just don't get on enough because I just read ron's post about 4x4ing dated three weeks ago. so terribly sad... sorry ron, can we re-schedule? anyways, a few things...I am going to miss this saturday's get together per a night shoot. But I would love to see you all and if anyone is willing, I would love to sponsor a bbq the week after (as in the friday after thanksgiving thursday, for all of us people either from here (not many) or the people who just can't make it back home) and that way fred davis can get his grill back, and ron can drive over my neighbor's lawn with his hummer (I never liked them that much anyways). So Friday the 26th, drinking, eating, humming (in no way the sexual way--unless you bring girls), and drinking. Keep in mind I have shot glasses made of ice waiting to serve their purpose...
And on a tech note and keeping the positive attitude going:
I bought howards 4 stage post a little while back, and after a few weeks of adjusting I really love its versatility and rigidness. even after having a small problem with it, howard came to my house to help sort it out. he took a piece off his sled and gave it to me to make sure I was up and running the next day at work. And then a few days later, I went to his house to pick up another piece of equipment and to modify my ne sled, not only did he sit there with his hack saw fine tuning my sled, he and i sat at his computer for over an hour thinking of and engineering new ways of making his sled even sleaker. This is what I call customer service, and it is quite possibly the best and most important thing we as operators can ask for in this fickle world of steadicam.

So, point being...party nov 26th...howard...good job...
