Re: "Offtopic-posts-topic" NSFW

You helped to forge the path into a new era of hybrid development. If it wasn't for your efforts, my new cannon that I love to death wouldn't exist. Really appreciate this comment. That was my primary goal back then, to move spudding forward, hopefully inspire people to create bigger, more powerful...

Re: "Offtopic-posts-topic" NSFW

SpudBlaster15, I'm dying to know what you have in mind. Spill the beans! I don't have access to much space at the moment and it has been a long time since I touched any spudgun related building materials and tools, so I might just throw together a quick, easy QEV pneumatic to see if I can jumpstart...

Re: Canada prohibits spudguns over 20mm

Could be wrong but my understanding of this new legislation is that in order to fall under this ban a device must have a bore >20mm and be capable of launching a projectile with a muzzle energy of >10kJ. Therefore it does not apply to most spudguns, which are capable of much less than even 1kJ. Howe...

Howdy Gents! Don't remember the last time I signed into the files and made a post. Honestly, I'm surprised I even remembered my pword :lol: Interested to see who all is still active on here from the old days! @PCGuy I like what you've done with the place!

Re: I see we have a new skin …

Ironically enough the purpose of this design is to be extremely light weight, it is the entire purpose of this theme in fact - super light weight with JS/CSS running most heavy lifting. The rest of the site seems to be lightweight and impressively fast. Only issue for me has been the header animati...

Re: I see we have a new skin …

Look in the mirror, tell us. What do you see? Someone who possesses at least the very minimal level of computer knowledge required to understand that OP's choice of OS has little or no bearing on the massive performance penalty imposed by this site's header. Tell us jrrdw, which specific characteri...

Re: I see we have a new skin …

Oh lord, nuff said... Really? You're really still clinging to that "my platform is better than your platform" bullshit? Grow up, man. Back when I was a regular here, jrrdw was known for using this site primarily as a platform to broadcast his Dunning-Kruger affliction. I see not much has changed in...

Re: I see we have a new skin …

Overall it looks good, nice to see that everything now loads properly over TLS, and the new skin is far more aesthetically pleasing than the ~2013 iteration, which made the site look like a shitty nerf gun forum from 2003. This may sound harsh, but with that abomination in the scrapheap where it be...

Re: I see we have a new skin …

1 - javascript / canvas powered eye candy header background. Very pretty, but adds nothing to the experience and sucks up cycles like you wouldn't believe. It's grinding my machine into the floor to the point where I have to slow down my typing or get misse keystrokes. I can adblock it out, but ......

Re: TBMA-230 V2.0

Pictures are back up. I did an automated sort/rename of all my personal photos a while back, and didn't know for certain which ones I had used in the original post, so I had to guess. They are the most current available so they should be good enough. Hosting them on my personal server so you don't h...

Re: TBMA-230 V2.0

You have to write the letters A, P and R on the floor with PVC cement and put a QEV in the middle while reading an archived burnt latke page backwards if you want to summon him ;) Looks like someone recently performed the ritual correctly. Surprising, because if the incantation is even slightly off...

Hah, indeed.

The disaster that is the current chat implementation is the reason I started the channel.

Spudfiles IRC Channel

To access it, just connect to the freenode network using your IRC client (irssi, hexchat, pidgin, etc.) and type /join ##spudfiles It doesn't see much traffic right now, but hopefully it will pick up i...
