5/13/2011 12:39:46 PM Bin Laden hideout had extensive porn stash, officials say [quote]We already know that Osama bin Laden kept journals and watched television reports about himself while hiding in a compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan before he was killed in U.S. military operation May 1. It turns out he might have been building his porn collection, too. U.S. officials say a "fairly extensive" stash of pornography was recovered from the former al Qaeda leader's compound, Reuters first reported Friday. The pornography "consists of modern, electronically recorded video," Reuters reported, citing current and former officials.[/quote]Four wives and he still needed the Great American Satan to produce wank material.  I'd love to see a FOIA request to find out the titles to see what he was into.

5/2/2011 1:19:32 PM http://www.boardistan.com/?p=22966 [quote] French fashion giant PPR, the parent company of brands like Gucci, Bottega Veneta, Yves Saint Laurent, and Puma, has announced its intention to purchase 100 percent of the shares of Volcom for $24.50 a share “for a total equity value of $607.5 million and an enterprise value of $516.1 million.” Read more: http://www.boardistan.com/?p=22966#ixzz1LEEc8CZa[/quote] Volcom also owns Electric, for what it's worth.

4/6/2011 12:17:42 PM This season, I decided to upgrade to the fancy pants spherical Smith goggles (Phenoms specifically) which use a Porex filter specifically designed to prevent between-lens fogging. However, I've had three lenses that use this Porex filter, and every single one developed between-lens fogging.  My friend who also has a pair also developed the same problem.  I've never had this issue with any other brand, or even any other non-Porex Smith goggle.  Just the Porex ones seem to have the problem.  Has anyone else run into this? I like to think I'm fairly diligent about preventing it: I keep the lenses in a separate dry goggle sack from the actual goggles, in a different part of my backpack.I dry the lenses/goggles out after riding, every time.At home, I keep the lenses out in the open so any residual moisture can dissipate.Sometimes the issue is resolved by putting the lenses in a bag of rice, but not always. I think the issue is the fact that the PNW, and Portland specifically is just incredibly humid in winter/early spring, and some of that moisture is seeping through the Porex filter.  Any community suggestions?  I'm getting a little tired of RMAing lenses back to Smith.
4/1/2011 11:18:34 AM They're already sold out of the Flagship, but they still have a few Mountain Twins available for $269.  Here's a non-referral signup link:  http://www.theclymb.com/invite-from/TwitterInvite
3/12/2011 6:49:02 PM Link to Meadows Blog It looks like Heather Canyon got nailed something fierce.  Thankfully, it looks like nobody was injured, but they said it's going to take "a while" to get the area fully operational again. Here's a pic of the deposit at the bottom of Jack's Woods:
3/9/2011 4:43:49 PM I posted earlier about the end-of-season clearance sales at REI, but it looks like this warrants another heads-up.  They just marked down a bunch of their wax supplies to 50% off. Link to REI for 'wax' All snowboard tools A few highlights: $12.93 - 180g fluorinated all-temp Swix wax $11.93 - 180g non-fluorinated all-temp Swix wax $19.93 - Swix waxing iron $10.93 - Finishing brush
3/8/2011 1:29:53 PM I've been curious about this for a while: How much does waist width affect one's float in powder?  I've heard anecdotal evidence to support that a wider board is better, and it does seem to make sense.  On a groomed run, your edgehold is reliant on how much board edge is in contact with the snow/ice surface; width doesn't seem to play into it.  But with powder, you're trying to float on top, and a wider board would mean less PSI against the snow, I would think translating into more float. This diagram of the Jones Hovercraft seems to reinforce this.  It's a shorty board, but because of the additional width, it claims as much float as a much longer board. That's not to say I want to run out and buy the widest board I can find.  I've found them to be generally much more sluggish edge-to-edge than their mid-wide/regular counterparts on firm surfaces.  But for a pow board, sizing up the waist width might make some sense.  Thoughts?
2/24/2011 12:37:17 PM I'll be headed up to Hood tomorrow, and it looks like the temps are going get down to -25ish (including wind chill).  Does anyone have recommendations for layering in that scenario?  'Cold' for me usually means in the low 20's, so this is sort of new territory for me.  I was planning on throwing on a vest into my base layer/fleece layer/shell combo, and doing base layer/fleece/shell for the legs.  I don't have a warm facemask, but I have two thinner ones (a buff and a ride qi) and I'm planning on wearing both.  I figured I'd also wear the liners for my mitts for the first time as well.  If anything, I think I'd rather slightly over-dress than under-dress since my shells have pretty good venting.
2/11/2011 2:21:15 PM http://www.rei.com/Sale+and+Clearance Discounts aren't the insane spring deals that we've seen in the past, but everything is covered by the REI warranty, making them a pretty good value overall.
2/7/2011 6:59:01 PM Both sold! 2008/2009 L/XL Union Forces: SOLD! I rode these most of last year, but that haven't gotten much love since I scored a cheap pair of P1.1s.  They show some wear (as pictured), but thanks to the typical bombproof Union construction they're still a solid binding.  Includes original box/plates/screws/etcetera. 156 Sierrascope: SOLD!     Rode this last year maybe about 10-15 times - no rails, no jibbing.  It's a great board, but a little undersized for me for all-mountain riding.  It's in very good shape, regularly waxed, with the few nicks I picked up shown in giganto detail.  Here's the TruSnow link for it Discounts:  $275 shipped if you want both, or knock $20 off the price of either item if you're a local Portlander who can meet me downtown during the week.
2/2/2011 1:56:29 PM Now that a few manufacturers are offering canted footbeds on some of their bindings, what are the community opinions on it?  As someone who's had knee issues in the past, I'm drawn to anything that could help prevent problems, but if it's such a great thing I'm wondering why it hasn't been included with more models. Here's the gist of it for those unfamiliar with it: Burton Cantbed Rome Yes I Cant
11/29/2010 12:12:00 AM Selling my 2009 161.5W Bataleon Jam.  It's been used, but not abused.  It's a great board if you're looking to try out TBT on the cheap and you've got big feet; it has a waist width of 265mm.  It's one of Bataleon's sintered boards, and can be quite speedy after a hot wax. $200 + shipping (US only), or you can do a local pickup if you're in PDX. EDIT: SOLD!
