10/20/2009 2:02:09 PM Board:  2010 - 152 Capita Green Machine FK Bindings: ’09 Contacts w/ Data Straps Conditions: Man Made Groomed.  35-60F Stance: Centered 15/-15 Comparison: 08/09 Horrorscope and 09/10 Hero Me: 5'7" 140-145lbs   Day 1: Loveland I was expecting horrible conditions as it is mid-October.  The conditions were actually quite good, good snow coverage and the runs were well groomed.    Butters were easy and FK definitely plays a part in that.  Swing weight seemed pretty good, but I am also a little rusty for the year as this was only day two. Park-  I took the board through the park (with de-tuned tip and tail only) and it handled well.  I liked the slightly stiffer flex when compared to the Horrorscope for balance purposes.  The park was quite simple, a rainbow box and a flat box.  Probably along the lines of an intermediate set. Jump lines: None available, and popping off rollers just wouldn’t do the review justice.  I hope to hit a couple jump lines but it will probably be another month or two before anyone has anything built up. Edge Hold:  The board held an edge quite well, then conditions turned to slush.  Still not holding like the Custom but no need for speed checks or any board chatter.   More days worth of reviews to come:     Overall:  Even though I know full well that hand flexing this board does not give you any inclination towards how the board will actually behave I was doing just that, hand flexing, when I first received this board.  I had flexed compared to my Horrorscope, custom v-rocker, hero and x8v.  I really was anticipating an extremely soft board and was a little shocked to find that it was actually almost as stiff as the x8v.  A little softer than the custom v-rocker.  I was looking for a board that would allow me to hit groomers as well as make laps through the park and I was beginning to fear this board was not going to be what I was looking for.  Well as many people often find out, how the board hand flexes does not give you any real idea how it will ride.  This board was actually a lot of fun.  I found the FK once again impressed me.  It is still quite early in the season but I really enjoyed riding this board.  It didn’t take any time to get used to after switching from the Hero earlier in the day.  I haven’t ridden the Sierrascope, but I did like this board at least as much as my Horrorscope if not more.   I will update this review after I get some different snow conditions and a few more days on it.
9/25/2009 7:26:04 AM I have a used 152 2010 hero.  Has maybe 5 days on the hill.  In excellent condition.  I was going to keep it but honestly I already have too many park boards.   $350 shipped.  I will leave it up on Sierra for a couple days to give people here first choice.  Then it goes up on CL and Ebay.

5/19/2009 7:44:01 AM pepsi center double booked I am guessing to make things better this is probably a double post.   http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/news/story?id=4176082   Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers are scheduled to be at the Pepsi Center in Denver next Monday night. Problem is, so are John Cena and a bunch of wrestlers -- and they called it first. World Wrestling Entertainment said it is booked at the arena for an episode of Monday Night Raw, the same night the Nuggets are slated to host the Lakers in Game 4 of the Western Conference finals. WWE chairman Vince McMahon told The Associated Press he doesn't believe there was "any malice, just ineptness," on the part of Kroenke Sports, which owns the team and the building, but can't tolerate the company "just simply throwing us out on our ear." Without a quick resolution, McMahon plans to send his trucks to Denver. "That's what we intend to do," he said. "We're going to show up." Pepsi Center officials told the ABC television affiliate in Denver that the Nuggets game will be played as scheduled and that they are working with the WWE to reschedule or move its event. Paul Andrews, executive vice president of Kroenke Sports Enterprises, issued a statement Monday night concerning the scheduling conflict, saying: "We are working with the WWE to resolve the situation amicably." WWE spokesman Robert Zimmerman said the organization secured the Pepsi Center last Aug. 15 and has already sold more than 10,000 tickets for the event. He says the organization expects a sellout, with tickets ranging from $20 to $70. McMahon blamed Kroenke for not believing his team was good enough to still be playing in mid-May. "The fans in Denver had a lot more faith in making the playoffs than the owner," he said in a phone interview from Louisville, where Raw was taking place later Monday night. Denver is usually done with basketball by now. The Nuggets had lost in the first round five straight years, but as the No. 2 seed in the West are in the conference finals for the first time since 1985. The league, which handles scheduling during the playoffs, is leaving it up to the team and the WWE to figure things out. "The Nuggets and the WWE understand that the date of Game 4 of the Western Conference finals cannot be changed," NBA senior vice president Mike Bass said. "We are confident that the Pepsi Center and the WWE will resolve their scheduling conflict." Zimmerman said the Pepsi Center confirmed in March with the WWE that the organization wanted to keep the May 25 date, and sent a contract on April 15 -- the final night of the regular season -- which WWE signed and returned. Tickets went on sale April 11. The conflict didn't arise until Sunday, when the Lakers beat the Houston Rockets in Game 7 of the Western Conference semifinals. Had the Rockets won, Denver would have had home-court advantage in the next round, hosting Games 1 and 2 and putting the May 25 game in Houston. As of Monday afternoon, the schedule on the Pepsi Center's Web site listed WWE for 6:30 p.m. local time and Western Conference finals Game 4 at 7 p.m. Tickets for the wrestling event could still be purchased online. McMahon said he couldn't guess how much he would make from the show, but that canceling wasn't easy because of how much is involved in moving his equipment, plus filling its obligated time slot on USA Network. Litigation is likely -- but he plans to be putting on a card. "When you do have a date, you plan everything around it," he said, adding, "we may be holding an event in a parking lot somewhere." Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.
5/15/2009 8:29:33 AM So the day just isn't going fast enough for me, I began reminiscing about the year past.  One of the big things to kick off the season began at the Opera House in Downtown Denver.  The video was good, but the event was impressive.  That's it That's All of course.  I know it's not going to happen again this fall, but kids up in Jackson said they were going to start working on another film.   Brain Farm's - Flight (with Travis Rice of course)   -from Transworld Business   Taking a year off with the Natural Selection we’re just going to be able to make it that much better next year here in Jackson. It’s going to be two weeks before the Olympics, probably just after Denver, I can say Denver now. And then starting another film project. It’s going to be a two-year project. The working title of it right now is Flight. I don’t think people will really hear too much about it this year, but the following year for sure. So ‘11/12 it will be out? Yeah, the fall of ’11. That’s It, That’s All crushed it at the snow box office. What’s the story on Flight? I have full faith as far as our project. We basically spent two years learning through trial and error about everything that we attempted to take on. Going into this next project, we’re building on the trials and tribulations of this last one. Basically it took us two years to figure out what it was we were trying to do. Going into this new project with all of that figured out and a little more confidence from both sponsors and affiliates and people that are helping us out, I think we’re going to have a lot more streamlined effort. We have a lot of the plan already figured out. We have a lot of amazing riders that are committed and a lot of support from our sponsors Quiksilver and Red Bull. I look very forward to showing people what we hope to achieve with this next film.
5/14/2009 10:26:51 AM In addition to the Burton Hero I am also selling my X8V (more pics to come when I get home - the blue board).  The X8V is a Japan only release, the list price for the X8V is currently ¥93,450, or $980USD.  This is the late release 2008.  I liked the board but I need to reduce the quiver...significantly.   Size 151.5   Selling price $300+ship   The board has about 10 days.  There is some wear and tear on the topsheet, rather minor but still will get some pics to show it.   Specs: +カーボンiビーム™ / Carbon I-Beam +カーボンVaporskin™ / Carbon Vaporskin +ドラゴンフライ™コア /  DragonFly Core +強めのキック  / Strengthened Kick (what is this...elliptical kick like the Uninc?) +The Channel +インフィニットライド™  / Infinite Ride +マルチゾーンEGD™  / MultiZone EGD +ネガティブ・コアプロファイル  / Negative Core Profile +プレッシャーディストリビューション / Pressure Distribution +プロティップ™ / Pro Tip +シンタードN20 WFO / Sintered N20 WFO +スラントウォール / Slantwall (don't know what this is) +ステンレススチールエッジ / Stainless Steel Edges +[NEW] スクープ / Scoop +ファイバーグラス:トライアックス™レスポンス / Fiberglass Triax Response +ツイン / Twin  
5/14/2009 7:09:53 AM Selling the 2010 Burton Hero 152 (the yellow one, currrently my only picture of it).  It has about 5 days or so of riding on it.   The board is in excellent condition.  I will add more specs later today.   PRICE $350+ship   for specs go to: http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_ArnDomWlpTc/SWNQM3NSeeI/AAAAAAAADTM/rN4qop9lDOU/s1600-h/16613.jpg
4/23/2009 7:23:49 AM http://www.sierrasnowboard.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=18585&PID=485424#485424   This thread could have added just as much value as 99.99999% of the threads on this forum yet we close it.  I honestly don't care that the thread was closed, I am just wondering what the basis is for closing threads that people decide to post in.  Why not close the threads that no one ever posts in.  Just seems like random moderation to me.      
4/13/2009 12:03:36 PM Board:  154 Custom V-rocker Conditions: Typical Spring, morning ice turns to slush.  18F-50F Stance: Centered 15/-15 Comparison: 07/08 custom 08/09 custom Me: 5'7" 140-145lbs   Day 1: Breck Breck is flat so I spent a lot of the day just playing around on the board.  Trying out switch a lot.  Initially I noticed the flex of the board while riding switch (it's a directional twin) but it didn't affect the riding.  The board had a ton of pop, more than I remember for any of the previous Customs, I am sure this has something to do with the vroc, but I was actually expecting less pop, not more.   Took it through the jump line at breck, which is very well built and has great transitions, the board handled great, very stable all the way through.   I tried buttering the board but my ankle is still messed up from a wreck a few weeks back.  I could still butter it but nothing special.  Pressing is simple.   Rails and boxes were ok, but I only did one run so wait till day 2 for more.   Day 2: Keystone bombed some groomers and the board did great at speed, even in icy conditions.  It didn't hold an edge on the ice like the other two customs I have owned but I never felt unstable.  Again some of this can be blamed on a bad ankle.   park - I finally got some time on a park I was familiar with and can hit at good speed.  the board did great.  I was amazed at how easy it was to spin and ride rails and boxes.  the board spins quite easy and the landings were smooth.  even a little set back on a couple landings the board was fairly forgiving.    overall: I can see this board being perfect for a lot of people who only want 1 board to do a little of everything.  I would like to ride it in some deeper pow to see how the vroc handles but given previous versions I can only see this as an improvement.  The vroc also makes the board feel softer.  if you are a fan of burton and want a do it all board, this will work well.  the only thing I would cringe at is the new $580 price tag that goes with it.  Riding this board made me forget that I had recently broke my horrorscope.         I expect Bruizza to give you some additional information from a completely different perspective.  I cannot press this board any where near as much as he can.  Although I was on a 154 at 145lbs and he was on the 156 at 200+
4/12/2009 9:35:49 PM it has been requested so I will make its own topic. since part of what I do for a living is RCFA (root cause fai lure analysis) I feel that I must give Capita the due diligence of the full story. When I first got my horrorscope I mounted a set of Union Contacts to it with the supplied hardware.  I tightened them with the supplied bolts and the bindings would not secure to the board.  When I tightened a little more the supplied bolts pushed through into the base, I was not happy. So how the board cracked... I went for a jump and cleared the landing, about a 15' to 20' drop.  My bindings were tweaked  and my ankle paid the price.  I didn't notice any damage to the board initially.  I go out riding again and notice a crack underneath the binding.  As soon as I got back I took it to my local shop to see what they thought about the warranty. After my local shop reviewed the damage they felt it was a warranty issue and sent the board in. the crack initiated here (pic below) Capita returned the board a declared that the warranty was due to the inserts fai-lure and not due to the stress exerted by the bindings during the bad landing.  My main question is that the board took 30+ days of riding with no crack.  One bad landing and it broke.  I also can't deny the fact that the screw pushed through, which is my fault and Capita's.  Today was the first day I was able to actually evaluate the fai-lure and given the time of year and how many people try to warranty boards, I understand their skepticism. The actual response is what I don't like, makes it seem like I did it on purpose.  The fai-lure happened when I cleared the landing, my ankle to the beating as well.  Wish they would have warrantied it. " Capita denied your claim and are not replacing the board because they feel the kind of stress that would cause that kind of breakage is not covered under warranty."
4/8/2009 10:35:05 AM http://www.boxee.tv/  Anyone have any experience with this yet?    "Introducing the boxee API — avner ronen on April 6, 2009 @ 7:52 pm we are very excited to officially release the boxee API. it is a big part of our mission to bring open-source and the creativity of the Internet to the living room. the guys over at boxeehq have been able to build impressive stuff without real documented tools, so we’re excited to see what developers will do with a full-blown API complete with documentation. the new boxee API enables developers to build sophisticated applications (such as the Pandora and RadioTime apps) using a set of API calls in Python and writing the GUI using XML. we started boxee based on features and content we wanted in our own living rooms. we introduced additional content and features based on user feedback. we have created the new API to further democratize the process. we want to provide developers with easy tools to create new applications and share them. users can install new applications via the boxee App Box, the beginnings of our app store. unlike other app stores, boxee does not want to be a gate keeper (or bottleneck) in deciding which applications are published so anyone can become a publisher.  publishers can each create a different “repository” of applications they host.  to add an app from their repository, just add it to “my repositories” in boxee. for example, boxeehq publishes their applications using their own repository (”dir.boxeehq.com”). we’ve also set up a developer section on the boxee forum and are looking forward to hearing your feedback on the API, issues you are having, stuff you would like us to add or do differently, etc. the forum is also a good place to connect with other boxee developers and share information about what you’re working on."
3/17/2009 8:36:02 AM Glad it's finally done.   http://www.woodwardatcopper.com/ http://www.coppercolorado.com/mediaroom/releases/2006_sept8_woodward.htm
1/11/2009 4:11:18 PM if you have had your chance to hate, take the time to thank! I am thankful that Sierra has provided a way for many people to have excellent setups at reasonable prices also for the friends and fellow riders that I have met here... for the Colorado Mtns! for my Capita Horrorscope
