Ever google your user name here to see what would come up? Can any one tell me what this is about? One of my gear threads is quoted below at this site.
If I've been called an idiot in Russian, I want to know :

прочитал на форуме , что кроме заточки кантов (tuning) существует, и даже довольно распостранен detuning - то есть "затупка" кантов. Типа чтобы легче было сбрасывать пятки и ехать не как по рельсам, особенно на жестких лыжах. И что любители могула такое практикуют. И вообще лыжа более прощающая становится.Для меня новость. А для наших мастерских по заточке, интересно?
потому как на вышеупомянутом форуме, говорят, что если не сказать в мастерской конкретно, что "пожалусто, тупить носки и пятки НЭ НАДА", то затупят!

I had SierraJim base grind and tune my skis last month. I emphasized "no detuning". He was surprised at the request, but produced one of the nicest base structures and tuning jobs I have ever received from a shop. If you don't want to have tips and tails detuned, you have to specify it to a tech you trust. Standard practice is to dull the tips and tails.

The fellow is quoting your post to make the point that readers on this Russian ski forum need to specify to the shop tech how to tune their skis.

Cirquerider,

you are O'K. The poster in Russian found out about the concept of "detuning" from your reference. He explains how he understands detuning. The point is: the detuning concept was a discovery for the poster. So he wonders whether this concept is also a news to Russian ski shops.

From your post he got the feeling that unless you specifically asked for "no detuning", the skis in an American shop would be detuned.

Yuki = snow in Japan

Two major "Yuki" appear

One is a woman vocalist who must be pretty big time.

The other with the most hits (endless), is a cartoon character, a high school senior, a boy who is shy but a lady killer and he can morph into the 12'th sign of the Chinese Zodiac so he can turn into a white rat.

Google found 1,200,000 references to Posaune. I don't think I'll look at them all, though. I'm easily bored.

Thanks, Arkady. My Russian translating skills are very rusty indeed.

Cirque, that sketch does remind me of someone.

Hm... I don't get anything fun or interesting by Googling my name. The only thing that comes up is EpicSki, Youtube, Realskiers, and a few others... bummer.

No wait, that would be incest .. or ... : .. or interesting.
