It's Sunday in Australia. :wink:
Something a little different than other launchers posted in this thread, but SpudMonster was a major reference when building my first combustion launchers.

Check the updated pictures on the second page.

Well, time for a bump, methinks.

Most of the newer members have probably never heard of sgort87's Proton Pack, but it's easily one of the most unique and creative combustion launchers ever built.

Such a shame that something as impressive as this was overlooked and mostly forgotten.

He bought a house and with it came bills to pay and the need for a 'steady' paycheck. It's the adult way of life, enjoy! :wink:

Yes, I know and understand the adult way all too well, bills suck!! However, he should give us plans for his launchers and valves, so we can carry on the awesomeness!!!! :D :D

Last time I talked to him he did mention something about juggling new house, job and school. That was back in Feb./March if I remember correctly...

Nope, didn't finish school. At this rate, not sure if I ever will go back. I've tied myself up in owning a pizza shop with my parents since July. It's been fun, but it's very demanding on my time. Kind of a good thing I got laid off from FermiLab, so I can concentrate on that.

Lost my girlfriend of two years a couple days ago, so now I have a little more time, but I'm not sure if I'll start doing spud work again. I just got my recording studio set up for the first time in years and I'm thinking of really getting into that again. Also, I should probably get up off my ass more and lose some damn weight. I'm keeping up with repairs for anyone that needs it, but for now I'm not sure when I'll be in full gear in the cannon shop again. I'm always just a PM or email away if anyone needs me.

Chin up, enjoy your new found freedom, and carefully rationalise any residual feelings. Futurama Fry is right to ponder:
