delete your systems temporary data (which is probably the culprit here)

Second this, and everything mark.f said.

But for general interest, this program is good to see if there is a big file lurking somewhere on the computer, then you can decide if it is needed or not.
Also has a nice graphic on what type of files are taking up what spaces.

Deleted all contents in a 1.34 GB file named "Temp", I think its the system temporary files mark.f said .. I don't have fully functional antivirus software, the one that i have is kept for telling if any file has a virus so i can delete it...so problem solved.
Thank you guys.

I've neglected this forum for a while now, mainly because I made the mistake of taking an active interest in reddit that is a real black hole for free time, and pointless. Also, in spite of now living in a place with wide open spaces, I haven't taken advantage of it to make bigger and better spudguns, and spudfiles reminds me of this failure. One of my resolutions for 2015 is to rectify this. Quite a few projects in the pipeline at the moment which will be shared at the appropriate juncture.

Hehe, I'd like to see some larger projects from you :D

I'm now working on a manometric hybrid setup, it's time to get back into spudding.

For my last hybrid I was using 12 gram CO2 capsules as ammunition, now I have several boxes of expired 9, 12 and 20 oz CO2 cylinders to hand, hmmm... :D

That doesn't go to well with your obsession for sectional density :roll:

I just found a one liter Soda stream bottle, I want to turn that one into a hybrid.. it's also time for some manometric metering I think.

The small ~270g/10oz bottles? I've got one that I meant to use as a high pressure chamber but never got round to it. It would make a nice sub-10mm bore hybrid as the threads are only like 3/8" and the orifice is considerably smaller in diameter than that.

I found the 425 gram bottle. It has a 250 bar rating, so it should be good for some high mixes. I'm aiming for 20-25x. The bottle itself has some odd threads, couldn't find anything that matched.. I think i'll need to mod the original brass part.

You mean the fitting like this: http://i.ebayimg.com/00/s/MTYwMFgxNjAw/ ... 3/$_35.JPG

When I unthreaded it, I'm pretty sure the bottle threads were 3/8" male. So instead of the brass fitting above having both male threads, one is female and threads on to the bottle.

A man who accidentally shot himself in Northland was killed by a cannon-type firearm, police say.

Derek Allan Kelly, 74, believed to be a gun collector, was killed by what police described as a small, single-shot, cannon.

Police spokesperson Sarah Kennett said Kelly was killed after he attempted to move the firearm from the tray of his ute, when it accidentally discharged on Sunday afternoon.

Kelly died at the scene in front of his wife who was "very distressed".

Kennett said the barrel of the cannon was about 40mm in diameter.

Police were still investigating the circumstances and couldn't reveal much more because the matter was with the coroner, she said


Wonder if it was homemade or a proper gunpowder cannon. The latter sounds less plausible considering the bore size and I can't think why you would remove a loaded gunpowder cannon from a ute tray.

As some of you might know...I sold my old 49- turned -125cc bobber to a motorcycle-gear outlet shop...
Before I bought a 750 Kz hardtail..that is...


It kinda hurts to see people posing on "my" bike, displaying it on their facbook pages ..I would've never allowed it when it was still mine... :D ....but the poster putting them up to it makes me proud... :P
