After being castigated and corrected about my absolute lack of knowledge about rigging, I would like to apologize about offering any such advice, opinions, suggestions, or procedures.
Although I have had years of experience actually doing it, training programs, OJT schooling, union courses, in house courses, and HKU equivalency hours, it does not measure up to the vast amount of some of the members in this group. I know that people who have been in school longer than I have know much more than I, but I sometimes wonder why they can't even select the same color socks. Or recommend lifting with load bearing structural members. But I digress ...................
So, I defer to the know it alls. I know that it must be annoying to hear anything coming from outside one's brain when one knows it all, and I apologize again for trying to offer my invalid useless advice and opinions.
I shall continue to plod along in my own world. Devoid of omnipotence. Knowing only some things instead of all things. Not being all powerful and all knowing. I will, though, continue to correspond with those who, like me are not perfect or omnipotent. If that's okay, that is.
Maybe even form a new group. rec.crafts.metalworking.foraveragepeople
Or, perhaps the know it alls should form their own new group where they won't have to rub RedWings with the unwashed rabble.
