    I understand completely what you said about the Board. I also get some of what you referred to from the past. When the BLM or one of their surveyors takes this attitude, I just want to kick their ass. Appreciate your in input on this one and I will be checking it out and looking over my shoulder.

    I have a Topcon GR3 receivers. When i went to field recently the base receiver was not tracking satellites so i cleared the NVRAM but that didn't work. I then updated the firmware but that didn't also work. I am hoping you have some ideas to how to get it tracking satellites again. Thanks.

    I'm amazed how you pinpointed that dune. You almost dropped dead square in the middle of my section. You either saw clues I didn't, or you have a lot of time to analyze dune patterns. Lol.

      And to top it all off...it only took less than 13 minutes! I'm a quick scanner with my eyes I guess. My sons' granddad had a place near Kermit. I was a little familiar with some of the scenery around there.

    I saw a thread you started a few years back about getting your LA license by way of comity. I just passed the TX RPLS and LA is where I have my sights set on now. Did you end up pursuing the LA license?

      I applied a couple of years back and was denied because of a application issue. I got busy and back burned the idea. I've actually spent the last couple of months regathering all of the required info and hope to submit in the next couple of weeks

      Haven't been on the computer much because Money Penny has been convalescing from a knee replacement. My "retirement" is hard to get used to. I'm not usually good company when I'm in a fowl mood...;)

      But thanks for asking. It's a temporary thing. I plan on dragging a motorcycle or two out of the garage this weekend and acting like young again. Hope you and yours are ok.

    I helped, with others, talk him through some of his previous rough times. If you have his contact info, I lost direct contact with him several years ago, let him know that I still am willing to help if I can. We can do it me to him or him to me. Whichever way he prefers.

    Well, I've got until next year to think it over. Lots of things can happen in that time. Thanks for the heads up.

    Check the regs before retiring your OK license. I think You have to have it active for a minimum of 20 years. Plus be old enough. Otherwise you are just dropping it and would have to start over if you later wanted to practice in OK.

    Hi Jim,

    I have taken the liberty of contacting you personally in regard to the Bricscad program you talk about from time to time. I have been offered the possibility of getting back in the surveying game from and old friend and former employer. Any advice on how to make the best use of whatever way you do it would be of great help.

    Thanks in advance,

    Have you yet informed McMillimeter that the most prolific plant in West Texas, The Mesquite, is a foreign invader? From Spain. In the early 1500's. It came over with the first cattle.
    I do not communicate with him and as a rule haven't for over 15 years. The last time I checked he had all of my known email addresses blocked.

      Wow. I guess he takes things a little too personal sometimes. I remember when Wendell changed the format Kent threw a fit and held his breath a month or two. He's definitely an odd egg. I'll throw the mesquite thing in there soon and try to get a rise out of him! thnx

      He can't stand being laughed at. When he tried to attack me during a political disagreement. I kept telling him to try again, he might eventually get it right. Effectively laughing at his opinions and his attempts to try to belittle me and others. A few years later I tweaked his nose again. That is when he blocked all of my email addresses.

    You posted once that the HCN file is similar to a DAT file. You also mentioned it could be edited in Notepad. But the post I found was not specific about what should be edited from the HCN file to make it a DAT file. I am on a corps of engineers computer and have no way of installing software. So any suggestions on converting a HCN to a DAT without software are greatly appreciated.
