      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

  1. Come on guys and gals GD wanted mono's so the fact that P$B wanted the same in return for $ and expertise is no great bend over on GD's part. What's the big deal? FFS get a grip.
  2. ^ + 1
  3. Ah that's something I didn't know, makes sense. Still think it's BS though.
  4. Since when did 45 ft hulls fit in 40 ft containers. BS me thinks.
  5. Sorry they're terrible photos, but there's something rather poingnant about seeing Sir Peter Blakes "Seamaster" (now re-named Tara) back in NZ waters for the first time since he was murdered on board the very week that ETNZ win the AC. http://www.rnzys.org.nz/2017/05/28/sir-peter-blakes-yacht-tara-seamaster-returns-to-nz/ Says it's due into Auckland tomorrow, but she was heading into Kennedy Point on Waiheke when I overtook her coming back from a brief trip to the mainland, like I say shit pictures, I was a fair way away from her,but here she is. At least I'm pretty sure it's her, that bow is pretty much unique although it's less than obvious in the photos.

  7. Shame, all out of poodles to love?
  8. Waiheke RSA have got it on and its only 10 bucks for breakfast! Trouble is for the mainlanders there's no ferry that gets in before 5.
  9. Not on ETNZ, they are well policed, cameras looking at every display, Oracle don't seem to have any displays that I've seen shown.....
  10. Show ain't over til etc etc
  11. love it! The thought of Kim Dotcom trying get inside those hulls to check for dodgy sensors....
  12. There's a big difference between " severely limited" and impossible. In addition to this a lot of the (illegal) sensing hardware available could be easily concealed from or passed off as something else to a non electronic savvy measurer. A smart control management should actually use less hydraulic power as all movements are the minimum (low drag) amount required, the what we now look at as crude manual systems that were what should have been used in SF could easily use a great deal more power as it was all too easy to overtrim the foil requiring further power to correct this.
  13. Interesting.... and just who is the "electronics guru from New Zealand"? Do we know him/her because I'd thought if they were as described one or both of us would.
  14. Remember this post? I think it would be a grave mistake to think this all going to be easy for ETNZ, even if they get 2 more bullets tomorrow. In SF Oracle managed to turn a slow boat into a rocket when they were given just 1 day off racing, after tomorrows racing they've got 5. History says the team has cheated in the past, so put into a corner would they resist the opportunity to do it again? Illegal electronic control systems are easy to hide and very very hard to find unless you really know what you're doing, particularly as some of the potential options are at software level.
  15. Since when did being part of a consortium of three that owns half of a companies shares make an individual a "majority owner" ? Maybe your education is different to mine but a third of 50% comes out at 16.67 % (rounded up) both Richard and Isabel have a third of 48% in a second 3 way consortium i.e. 16% each and a further individual share each making each them both 17% shareholders. Last time I attended an educational institution 17 was more than 16.67, so that means 2 people can claim to own a larger share of KYC the Dean. I've got better things to do with my time than argue with attention seeking trolls, but despite that I still think you have no right to try and influence peoples buying choices and therefore peoples livelyhoods based on your own sad beliefs, particularly when you can't even get your facts right. You're obviously a total looser so don't expect to do anything more than ignore you in future.
