    ATT is setting up 4G in Richmond already? Now that could be a game changer...

    shiiiit diid I let the cat out of the bag??? VZ , ATT, and Tmobile are gearing up for 4G. I'm designing the backhaul for all of the fiber etc ;)

    My intentions were to get a KTM 300 2 smoke and a sport bike but the wife put that to rest... I pick up my new bike on Sat if it all works out. Honda xr650R in supermoto and dirt trim :)

    Hey Mangano,
    It's like deja vu all over again. I'm just back from San Juan working on UMTS upgrades.

    Plus a good excuse to see if I actually know how to post pictures on here and break cover on my Richmond Chatter Lurk.

    I just passed the certification exam that has kept me from enjoying the nice weather for the last week.

    Now I am nominally qualified for my job. There are 4 more exams for the next certification I am pursuing but I am going to take off a week from studying.

    So, you picked up the new bike but no pictures?

    Isn't the motto something like "It didn't happen if there are no photos"?

    Come on, you know we need pictures.

    9' 10" long doubled 2x12s with OSB spacers to form a header are HEAVY. But we managed to get'em - alone.

    Damn glad that part of it is over. Finish framing in the window with their respective headers is next.

    So were you a carpenter in a past life or what? Once that concrete was poured, I wouldn't have known where to start.

    LOL! No, just following my instincts on this one. The front wall was a PITA 'cause I deviated a little from the plans I have. Figured I'd never get it up intact with those headers, so built it in sections and kind of pieced it together. The bitch was getting them up and into place. Them suckers was heavy.

    Oh, there are "warts," but that's where the trim work comes into play to hide'em.

    Hopefully get the remaining four windows framed in, all the wall tied together with the top sill plate, siding up, and ready for the crane to lift the trusses into place by the end of the week. It should be under roof by Tuesday of next week.

    Should be............

    Perhaps a little long hair for a "long haired construction Guy," but am watching Live from Lincoln Center on PBS. Pianist Emanuel Ax, cellist Yo-Yo Ma and violinist Itzhak Perlman are perfoming Mendelssohn's Piano Trios and other selections.

    Good shite!!

    I caught part of this last Weds., but had to bow out early. Good stuff, and a good end to a perfect day.
