Gtranslator gets it a little better...

Do not look back, and grieve over the past, for it is gone;
Do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come;
Live life in the present, and make it so beautiful that it will be worth remembering.

My word, that is awful, awful translating by babelfish. Anyone who has learned German for an hour should get at least 'Can I come' and 'breasts'. 'auf Ihre' is a bit more difficult, but you should be able to guess it. Babelfish has to be the worst translator.

It does quite well with english to spanish and vise versa, but, not knowing any other languages remotely fluently, I have never checked it in anything else.

Haha I did the same thing when I posted the update :D

Yeah sure, perhaps tomorrow I'll have time. GGDT says i'm getting about 120m/s or so at 240PSI.

edit:
Today I played some back yard golf, first shot hooked wildly right on the 14th fareway and landed amongst the forest between the 14th and 15th. Second shot I lowered the pressure to 240PSI and managed to get a decent shot just landing short of the 14th green. Who needs a driver when you have a cannon? :D

No one was on the course and I know that the cannon doesn't have the range to go further than the estimated trajectory and landing as shown on the picture.

New video on the first page. This time it's dualed off against the V.A.L cannon.

You guys are probably getting used to seeing my garage clothes about now. God knows how much JB-Weld is stuck on those boardshorts :roll:
