I attend the SEMA Show in Las Vegas this week and saw a bunch of cool stuff for our Jeeps! They had every possible thing you could want for a Wrangler. I have a bunch of pictures from the show, about 7 or 8 of Wranglers, but again I dont know how to post so all can see. I hope this process isn't too complicated, would love to post em...

Check the pic posting instructions in the Town Hall help file. Biggest problem is finding a place to "host" the photos, since we don't. Tom may have some ideas, but he's prolly out wheeling with Ross Allen

I can host photos for you on my server. Nothing crazy but a handful of pictures each is fine. Just email me to let me know that you want some photos hosted adn I'll give you an alternate eamil address where you can send them. Once I get them, I'll FTP them to my server and send you a URL back.
#7430 of 23397 Terrible, terrible thing happened at Turkey Bay today!
Nov 09, 2002 (9:16 pm)
My friends, I saw something awful today at Turkey Bay. I am posting this so that if any of you operate a dune buggy, four wheeler, dirt bike, whatever, you will wear all the proper safety equipment and operate the vehicle in a safe manner.
A guy was just flying down the long flat stretch at the entrance to Turkey Bay today, and he rolled his dune buggy.
There is a huge, level field to your right as you enter Turkey Bay OHV Area, and this is where people park and unload their Jeep, four wheelers, or whatever. This is where a lot of people hang out and wait for others to arrive. Most of this area is grass, but on the northern side, there is a long, wide gravel and dirt area.
This guy in the dune buggy was going really fast, and I guess he thought he didn't have room to stop before reaching the trees at the east end of the long gravel stretch. He locked up his brakes and turned the steering wheel hard left. This sent him into a roll, and he was apparently only wearing the lap belt portion of his harness.
As the dune buggy rolled, his upper body and arms were hanging out of the vechicle. He looked like a rag doll being tossed around. It was NOT something anyone would want to see.
I will skip the gorey details, but he was hurt so badly that they had to take him out in a helicopter.
PLEASE BE CAREFUL! USE COMMON SENSE!
Let's keep this guy and his family in our prayers.

I'll second that advice!
#7432 of 23397 Suggestions for photo editing software?
Nov 10, 2002 (4:16 am)
Now that I have my new digi and am trying to learn some of the "tricks of the trade," I would like some recommendations for photo editing software.
I would like to be able to shoot and store in higher resolution but be able to resize my pics to something suitable for emailing or posting on web sites. I don't think I will want to do much of anything fancy as far as editing, just maybe red eye correction and maybe some cropping.
Have you hugged your Jeep today?

Sorry Microsoft Photo Editor didn't work for you. It looks like the price has gone up since I bought it, but ACDSee is a full feature photo suite and can be bought over the web ($50) for download (15 meg I think). It offers everything you need and then some. Not the cheapest, but very nice software.

Sounds terrible about what happened, it's unfortunate he wasn't strapped in better. Sometimes people get carried away 'having fun' and don't think about the safety of themselves and others, what a shame. We'll wish him the best from out West.
I use Photoshop 7.0 for all my digital work, it's very powerful. But, it's not user friendly and takes considerable time to wade through all the functions/features to do what you want.
For quick and dirty photo editing, including resolution changes and cropping, Microsoft's PhotoDraw is great. That came part of their Office 2000 Premium suite, if you have access to that.
Of course there is a lot of shareware titles out there to choose from, some being better than others, check download.com. There are some small little freeware progs that will do batch resizing, which is really handy if you're about to post a bunch of pics.
