I would assume exit point and canopy landing were factors in the decision as well.

Why add weight when you can just wait it out?

You better tweet that to them now so they can swing by Wal-Mart and pick one of these up for tomorrow.

I could get this feed at redbullstratos.com and youtube.com on my laptop with no trouble.

But I tried to watch it on my TV (Sony XBR-46HX929 with ethernet connection to router) using the TV's browser and the YouTube widget and failed. Using the browser, I could get the site, but when I clicked on the video, it opened YouTube in the browser and refused to play the vid. Using the YouTube widget, I found a bunch of their vids and could watch them with no problem, but the search would never find the live feed.

Have to try to figure out what I'm doing wrong before they attempt it again.

Played a trivia game at a bar last night. My team name was "yo Felix, drop the B.A.S.E.".
