  1. sunrise... i dont think anything non-apple will sync up with itunes...but there are plenty other media juke-box players out there that are just as good... also, apple has a very tight pricing scheme...meaning its hard to find deals for much less than what is on the official apple web-site...the rio (and other manufacturers) on the other hand, will drop in price quickly (I got my karma for like 100 bucks cheaper than the official web-site figure)...my guess is the rio will be cheaper... danz
  2. hey mogski...db... next weekend...lets go! enough talk danz
  3. enderz...you really think he almost made the 2nd round??? man, I would bet that the fight lasted as long as it did because the networks told those 2 to stretch it out as long as possible...sapp was holding back his blows early on...akeboooono was pathetic...what a boring match... WEAK danz

  5. 14 for me...thanks to a 2 week adventure in Niseko... Amazingly, I went out every day, although there were about 3 days were I managed only a few hours... We shall see what the season brings...hoping around 30... time and $$$ permiting... danz
  6. another short review... Salomon Course XR Japan boots... I like these boots...way softer than my last pair (Head World Cup). Besides the appearance of a really annoying pressure point on the side of my foot (which thankfully disappeared after a few days), the boot did not cause me any major comfort issues. In fact, I can even keep them buckled for the entire day! This is something I could never do on any pair of boots I have ever owned (except maybe that first pair...rear-entry ... not much choice for buckled/not buckled in that case ). There were a few drops and bumps tha
  7. To all those interested... Just got back from my 2-week Niseko adventure...what a trip! Will get a journal entry going soon.... On to the gear. This was my first time on the Vokl V-Explosive. They are a fat twin-tip ski (120-95-112), 180cm long. I love em! First thing I noticed, well, they were really fat! I thought my upgrade last-year to mid-fats was a big step, but this is a whole different ballgame. At first I was a little intimidated...I didnt think I would ever be able to control them, or get them on edge...truth is they are a very responsive ski. Noticeably stiffer
  8. guess Ill chime in... I was in a fraternity...actually, a Co-ed frat...sounds wierd, but it is actually the only nationally affiliated co-ed greek organization...but enough about me, here is the process.... 1) Rush - everything starts with Rush. This is a chance for unaffiliated students (usually freshman, but in many schools sophmores) to get to know members of the various frats, learn about the frats themselves...it is also a chance for the fraternities themselves to get a good look at new potentials...and decide who they think would be a best fit 2) Bids - Towards the end of ru

  12. maybe you dont want to hear what I am paying for 2-weeks in niseko (plane ticket...and 13 full skiing days)... 80,000 is steep bro! and you are spending half that time on a boat!! hope you can fill that spot... danz
  13. I think a rt from tokyo-ny will get you around 13000miles...you usually need around 25000miles for a free domestic flight....50k for international...upgrades are usually less (like 15000)... danz
  14. I have been collecting since airlines first started mileage programs....they really pay off... have used them mainly for domestic travel in the US (visit family and friends)...also for class upgrades, and once for a ski trip to france! good things those miles are... danz
  15. I have been playing around with the jukebox player called J.River Media Center...it is pretty amazing, and meant to handle all your media (images, movies, audio). It has tons of plugins to handle portable devices too like iPod... you can get a 30^day trial version from their site... www.jrmediacenter.com check it out... danz

  23. hehe...think I grabbed the last pair from minami sports (kanda/jimbocho area)...last year model so got a good price on it (at least compared to the new breed of fatties)...I am riding a 180...and that seems like a lot of ski to me now (only 2years ago I was on skinny 195s!!!) danz
