    but for now, is everyone ok with a site much like Slittlefields and Arrowheadequipment?
    (both use .webs)

    As long as you get it set up correctly and tell all the major search engines to crawl your site, I dont think it matters. You want to make sure you can alter/add meta tags and then you want to tell Goggle, Yahoo, Bing and the other major search engines about your web address. Some say it can take 2-6 weeks before your site will show up in a search..... It took mine about 3 days.....

    same amount of down, fellas. same temp ratings too*. if anything, it just looks cool. as many other DIY and cottage guys are making quilts i think i just want a new "look" that will set mine apart a lil' bit.
    the website will launch soon, and the pics will have to be uploaded on this dinosaur comupter i use so - if anything - i have a way of dangling a candy in front of a child so to speak.. i'll be in touch!

    *edit: i have started recently using 900fp down. so maybe, yes, a slight boost over the 850fp down of yesterday.

    Something else to keep in mind is bandwidth. My GoDaddy package came with 1000mb per month. I recently had to purchase more because Ive started going over.

    My familiarity with bandwidth is limited, but if I understand, its the amount of information thats transferred when someone opens your site. So the all the pictures and text that gets transferred to the computer of someone that opens your site adds up over a month. Not sure how .webs handles that....

    the diagonal is just a slight angle, maybe 15 degrees off center.. so although it is recommended to get the righty or lefty to suit your needs, laying contrawise would be 30 and still provide loft/warmth, although not as efficient as per design.

    Sounds cool, Te-wa. I was looking at mine the other day and trying to dial in the fit, when I thought it would be nice if my Winter Coat was actually shaped asymmetrically to follow the direction of the lie. What do they say about great minds? Anyway, I was thinking that if the shape of the quilt was also assymetrical it might be easier to dial in a good fit to the shape of the hammock, especially at the head end.

    Anyway, just some thoughts to chew on. I've had some good success with mine once I figured out how to get it suspended right. Thanks for a great quilt!

    also, i was thinking.. last week i decided to offer a small prusik knot due to the popularity of the whoopie sling, and other suspensions using spectra like the HH line - that would allow you to clip the te-wa suspension and then simply slide this prusik along the amsteel for a perfect, quick fit. (you would have to loop the prusik yourself, very easy)
    that way you will be inclined to use WhoOpie slings if you have not already done so...

    Good idea Mike. That's how I adjust my te-wa UQ.
    Are you coming up with any new ideas on the TQ?

    Hmm, gives me something new to think about. Have been a little bored with the forum the last few weeks.

    It's no telling what gear we hammockers are going to have to choose from in 2 years, but we're getting somewhere.

    in that sense of thinking, wouldn't a V pattern be most efficient?
