Hey McCrowley, is galvanized pipe the same as black iron pipe but with a galvanized coating?

I'm not 100% sure but I think so. You could google to see what standards the pipes are made to and their pressure ratings. Personally, I wouldn't exceed a 10x mix in 2" malleable iron pipe. You could go up to 15x fairly safely if you remote fire it but I wouldn't want to be within 30' of it.

Okay, good to know. Thanks. I figured they would withstand more than 150 psi, I just didn't know how much more. I may try and do it with 300 psi fittings just to be sure, if I can find enough at a decent price. I definitely have no plans on exceeding 10x just based on what I've seen from yours and SB15s hybrids.

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 ;)

Not sure who that is but I beat him / her to this issue, and the issue is money! Photobucket in their infinite wisdom has changed the 3rd party image hosting feature of their website to a premium service. https://imgur.com/ however still does it for free.

I wonder how well this change in service feature is working for Photobucket?
Look if you must.

In a world where most web hosting comes with unlimited disk space and bandwidth, it makes little sense to use offsite image hosting that can, and eventually will, disappear. Imageshack's yellow frog, photobucket killing innumerable technical resources. Imgur will eventually die, or disallow non-ad-riddled image linking.

I'm on a couple of forums where you get castigated for linking offsite images rather than uploading direct, for exactly that reason.

That's a fair point, but by that reasoning even spudfiles can potentially die off - indeed that's what happened to the spudtech forum that most initial users previously populated before they migrated here. PCGUY was good enough to archive the text, but if for whatever reason he one day decides to pull the plug, down the drain it goes.

Looks like someone recently performed the ritual correctly. Surprising, because if the incantation is even slightly off, it will instead summon my extra-dimensional counterpart BlasterSpud51, who is currently locked away in the void and intends to reduce all life in the universe to primordial sludge if ever allowed to return to our world.

I'm almost certain that I still have copies of all the original photos from this thread somewhere on my server, so I will look into restoring them shortly.

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 have to worry about a third party host going down and wiping everything out; the pictures will still be around even if spudfiles shuts down.

Also, disappointing to see that there is apparently no support for generic HTML5 video embedding on this site. If I am missing something, please let me know!
