Ok guys, you gotta check this out for me. Ok, this may or not be a case mod. I mean it's a mod of my personal case, not my computer case. So, I go to the prosthetist today and get casted, they use fiberglass now instead of plaster. Very neat, clean and it's more exact because the fiberglass sets up much harder, of course. So, it'll be at least 2 weeks before I even have a test socket to try on. In the meantime, he gave me this to think about. I can have any of these patterns laid into the outer layer as a laminate instead of them trying to make a skin tone.

These are the patterns: http://www.fredslegs.com/lamstyles.htm

You have to understand my leg isn't what you normally see on an amputee, mine is a Symes, meaning it's at the ankle. It s*#@'s because it's not as versitile and they can't adapt it as easily, meaning I have a lot more problems and when my weight changes they have to do a total re-build instead of just a new socket.
So this is how my leg looks, you can see how much is normally showing between the sock and the sleeve: Attachment 151589

Mindy and I think the light colored wood would be the best. You know, wooden leg and all! We also like Snake, Digital Camo & Animal print. I personally like Blue Static, but you have to consider that you have to wear clothes to match. Or do you?? The old stuff which is just a pigment changes color within a few months and you end up with a 3 toned socket with mine being so long. So, whatdaya think??

Oh sheesh, guess what? I have another option to make. I mean, I'll get this prosthesis anyway but I can also go in for elective surgery and get my amputation shortened to a BK (below the knee). The benefits are: Better, lighter legs, with feet and ankles that have more movement and hold on better and if I loose or gain weight, they only change a small part instead of the whole thing. One other possible improvement is that it could reduce my pain levels a great deal because I don't have all that plastic pushing in on my leg.
The bad side: It's surgery, it's removal of a bone and a part of the body, any surgery is dangerous but these guys have had a lot of practice since the Iraq war started. The other is that I'll be on crutches or a wheelchair for at least 6 weeks, maybe 3 months before they can do a new prosthesis.

Would you choose to have this kind of surgery knowing that it could drastically change your life?

TIA,
Bri
Hoping all goes well for you BriSleep, I kind of like the Light Wood grain and Snakeskin the Blue Static looks pretty cool too
With the first two as you say they would go with just about anything you wear or not wear, the third Blue static is kind of wild Child, but still very hip

As for the Adjustment Operation if it means better quality of activeness, mobility and life in general , I would go for it!

Oh man, the Mortal Kombat is never going to stop now! We do have it on VHS & yes we still have 3 VCR's.

Thanks for all the votes guys, I still have 2 weeks to decide, maybe I'll post or maybe I'll wait till it's done and post a pic. As for the surgery, I really don't know but that's no hurry, I might consider it when we get the house. It's really hard to move around this trailer and it would be worse on crutches or a wheel chair.

My first box of goodies arrived today, crossing fingers waiting to see if the second will be here Friday. Got 2 Scythe Gentle Typhoons today, I don't even know if they're stronger than the Zalmans that are on top of my res but they should be quieter.

Wow, yesterday it was 73 and sunny, today the wind is howling, it's 46 and looks like rain, hopefully it will just snow in the mountains. It's amazing here sometimes, we can have 2-3ft of snow just an hour away and it'll be warm and sunny down here. This morning we awoke to the sounds of thunder but not a drop of rain fell. Those mountains are really a giant rise up from this valley floor. Heavenly Valley ski resort has the longest run in the world, the longest vertical drop...... Oh heck, here's the link: http://www.skiheavenly.com/the-mount...n-landing.aspx Anyway we can see the ski trails from here when the clouds aren't covering the mountains, yet we're only at 4400ft. It's no wonder I've never wanted to move away.

Oh wow, just looked at the lift conditions up there, they're all closed, the wind must be pretty bad to do that. I once got stuck in a chair lift on Mt. Rose during a wind, we were swinging back and forth and hanging over a canyon that bottomed out almost 1000ft below. Gee, that was the last time I went skiing.

Hey, who knows anything about ringtones for cell phones? I hate to pay $2.99 each but also don't trust these websites that say upload your music and we'll send the ringtone to your phone. The only one that I can see for free is from Sourceforge, Audacity. I guess, if I figure it out, I can see this thread on my phone.

Hey Bri. I used Audacity. It's pretty simple. Just open the song you want to make into a ringtone, highlight the section that you want, trim, and then save into a compatible format with your phone. Last step is uploading it back to your phone. PM me if you need any help.

i know if you have an audio editor you can cut like 30 second out of a track and convert it from stereo to mono (or you will lose half the wave) and save it in a specific file type (i cant think of the one so ill look it up when i get home) and then email or text the file to your phone. you need a data plan or a text package but even then it should be at least cheaper than the 2.994 from the provider


shameless plug for mod of the month.

go vote for me! DO IT NOW! you know you want to...


but really go vote for who you think is deserving of the march mod of the month. i hope its me

Cool guys, I know you younger folks know so much more about this than I do. So, say I want something that's really old and should be public domain. Any tips on where to look for that kind of music, like classical? Free, of course.
Geesh! I'll drop $230- just to make sure I can see the water move in my W/C loop but I jump through hoops to get a few ringtones!!
