RIP slitereturn

Hello, this is the webmaster for and with great sadness I announce that slitereturn, real name Youri Beinhadosov, has succumbed to his injuries suffered in a high altitude ballooning accident March 30, 2011.

A keen balloonist with a specialty in World War 1 era zeppelins, Youri was always the trailblazer in his field. Often spending hours in his laboratory (which was really his garage, but calling it this infuriated him) creating new "flying machines".

A specialist in ballooning, balloonery and balloon forensics, Youri graduated with a Bachelor of Science, majoring in Aviation from Princeton University.

Youri in one of his contraptions he created after a spout of balloonery.
Youri was always creating new things, whether it was old time bicycles, rock climbing equipment he considered highly innovative, his flying machines or the various ideas he had "pop in his head", he was always proud.

The various ideas he had eventually were culminated in the creation of his blog, floating in the toilet. Thanks for the support and as Youri said, "I'll see you when I get back down from space."

Technologically inclined individuals of the new millenium

A scholarly tech wiz using the internet with tactful skill and a precision that was previously unwitnessed is captured here in this industry file photo. The woman seen here is a jack off all trades/innovator and will soon be opening a computer training school to help teach children the way that a computer is properly used in the 21st century.
Old habits do truly die hard. This up and coming digital mastermind refuses to move on as technology does. Some call her a neophyte with a cause but she refuses to acknowledge even that, simply claiming to be a purist. Here she is uploading some pictures to her website before she sends her grandchildren an email update on her kidney dialysis treatments.
