Finished, pretty happy with the result. The rear derailer was a pita to mount since the original one came with a dropout. Had to drill/tap the frame and custom fit a new dropout. Worked out great tho.

Didn't understand what it says but something as an "active silencer", I suppose it's similar to what JSR was working on (suppressor with a trap door in the end)

If you look at the patent on their website it seems to be a conventional baffle stack.

After 4 months of tedious work, I got my bikes engine rebuild and running. Old crack in the crankcase was welded shut and all seemed to be working smoothly. After 200kms of happiness and wheelies, the weld broke and dunk all the oils to my boot. So in a need of a replacement.

Well, managed to find a used set in Germany, but what do you know, no shipping to Finland.

Anyone from Germany willing to help? I'd need someone to post the set for, investigate that there are no cracks or anything, and then shipping them to me.

PM me if you feel like helping out

@JSR Someone managed to do something we both failed :wink: (At least I did, all I got was a fart machine and a refuse to fart machine)
Have to give it another try...

Looks like an interesting contraption from limited manufacturing capability, but no videos of it actually firing projectiles from what I've seen. Interestingly the concept seems almost exactly what I had posted here!

The guy said it could fire semi, gravity feed. Doesn't do full auto because gravity feed not fast enough to load.
Still, his hammer cycled all the way back allowing the trigger to capture it, my case hammer only cycled half way back.

Anybody use awk or any other ancient scripting languages?

I've been teaching myself awk and sed the last couple of weeks and so far have completely replaced Jekyll (a VERY heavy piece of Ruby for generating static websites) for managing my website, made all kinds of miscellaneous projects, and wrote this small thing to update the x root window name (which my window manager uses for the taskbar area) to display the time and whether or not my website is reachable (on startup and every ten minutes).

Code: Select all
#!/usr/bin/awk -f
function checkWeb() {
    if(system(checkweb)==0) {
        updown="UP";
    }
    else {
        updown="DOWN";
    }
}
BEGIN {
    getdate="date +\"%R:%S %Z\"";
    setroot="xsetroot -name \"nitratedreality | {% time %} | web: {% updown %}\"";
    checkweb="curl -sf https://www.spudstalker.ninja/index.html > /dev/null";
    checkWeb();
    while(1) {
        setroottmp=setroot;
        getdate | getline time;
        if(time ~ /[0-9]+\:[0-9]5\:00/) {
            checkWeb();
        }
        gsub(/\{\% time \%\}/,time,setroottmp);
        gsub(/\{\% updown \%\}/,updown,setroottmp);
        close("date +\"%R:%S %Z\"");
        system(setroottmp);
        system("sleep 1");
    }
}


It's honestly the easiest language I've ever used. Things usually just wind up working without endless debugging and the code is always compact and clear (if you understand regexp's).

AWK is great, but, like most PERL, it tends to be "write-only" code.

While we're on PERL, though, for static websites I tend to use Andy Wardley's Template Toolkit.

I was looking into using Perl but then I saw the benchmarks for mawk and changed my mind. :D

However, I have a project I want to start working on which requires FastCGI and awk's not gonna cut it. :D (It would, but given the number of C bindings for FastCGI it's pointless)

EDIT: Figured I'd add this. It's a purely CSS solution to the dropdown menu problem, only problem is it primarily requires support for box-sizing (which is pretty good) to work, animations degrade gracefully, etc., etc.

Can anybody think of a way to keep the menus from running off the edge of the screen?

The CSS:
Code: Select all
*,*:after,*:before {
   box-sizing:border-box;
   margin:0;
   padding:0;
   border-width:0;
   border-style:solid;
   border-color:#ccc;
   list-style:none;
   text-decoration:none;
   font-size:1em;
   font-family:Helvetica,sans-serif;
}
.dd-contain a {
   display:block;
   padding:0.5em;
   font-weight:bolder;
   line-height:1;
   color:#c96;
}
.dd-contain, .dd-down {
   background-color:#333;
}
.dd-top, .dd-down {
   display:inline-block;
   position:relative;
   height:2em;
   text-align:left;
}
.dd-down {
   display:block;
   white-space:nowrap;
}
.dd-down-contain {
   position:absolute;
   top:-500px;
   left:0;
   opacity:0;
}
.dd-down .dd-down-contain {
   left:100%;
}
.dd-top:hover > .dd-down-contain, .dd-down:hover > .dd-down-contain {
   transition:opacity 200ms ease-in;
   opacity:1;
}
.dd-top:hover > .dd-down-contain {
   top:2em;
}
.dd-down:hover > .dd-down-contain {
   top:0;
}


The HTML:
Code: Select all
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
   <head>
      <meta charset="utf-8" />
      <title>Dropdown CSS</title>
      <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="style.css" />

Meh. As usual, the focus will be on the availability of firearms and not mental health issues.

To cheer everyone up, here's some more slow motion 155mm Exclaibur test footage, hitting point targets 50 freakin' kilometers away!



Some idiot commented that the 2 meter miss distance at 0:37 was a fail. Ah, youtube.

Also at 2:11 you can see a panel being blown off the Huey :D


This post is really very helpful for me. Keep up sharing the way you are now.
