Any coward can sit in his home and criticize a pilot for flying into a mountain in a fog. But I would rather, by far, die on a mountainside than in bed. What kind of man would live where there is no daring? And is life so dear that we should blame men for dying in adventure?

Is there a better way to die?

I forgot to edit the player requirements.

There's no reason this needs to be a solo task, in fact, it's probably better with more people!

No, that hadn't occurred to me. Mostly because I like the subtle difference between my card and a real BART card. Subliminals, if you will.

Yeah, I went a little nuts with this, but it kept producing idea after idea, so I just went with it.

This was a very well planned and executed op. From the satellite recon before down to the very well documented execution. While it may not stick to the letter of the task description, it definitely whole hoggedly embraces its essence! Very well done! (And much mirth & merriment was had!)

Re: Trouble
you're missing a closing double quote on the link to "THE TARGET" in the final update above. It's causing (in Firefox anyway) text to go missing and a bold tag to remain open.

@cameron: A Canon DSLR. It was a 30sec. exposure (pulled one stop), and I thought the aperture was closed about halfway, but the EXIF data tells me I'm wrong (f/5.6, not open all the way, but closer to it than what I remember). Absolutely used a tripod, though you could get a similar result propping the camera on the ledge.

I've gone back "re-exposed" the house (I love RAW camera images for exactly this reason) and it's less blown out. I like it a lot better. A larger (more suited for use as a desktop) version can be found here. :-)
