I used a rubber tile on mine, you can also buy sheets of neoprene rubber at some hardware stores, toilet plungers also can work.

Sheet Rubber

Unread postAuthor: Technician1002 » Thu Jul 23, 2009 12:36 am

My local hardware store has it in several thicknesses. They sell it by weight.

This piece is 1 lb at 3.50/lb.

I feel like I just read a page of text messages wrote by a bunch of middle school students. Scratch that, it's more like someone typing blind folded while heavily intoxicated. :o

Okay, maybe I'm exaggerating a little. A couple of you even attempted proper punctuation. I rarely feel the need to step in and be a dick, but the line must be drawn somewhere. It is a fact that many members here don't appreciate bad(extremely bad) posting etiquette, myself included. Bad "netiquette" is distracting and the reader will usually not take the thread seriously.

I hope the few of you will improve in the future(I won't name names). I typed just like you guys when I first joined SF but learned quickly that if I was to earn respect around here and be taken seriously I should type... Well, like I do now. With capital letters, punctuation, and sentence clarity. You know, all that good stuff.

Okay, finally done. :D
Terribly sorry I rambled so long. Mods I also apologize for the hijacking and the flaming. I will for the sake of courtesy, go back on topic despite my ramble.

ON TOPIC: More than likely there is a Home Depot or Lowes in your area. They usually have rubber sheets or tiles that should be up to par.

TaTer, I do not have a complaint (even though it is poor) with their posts because I read them on the first go. Sure it's not nice on the eyes but it's better than maggotman's posts- you would reach each post several times, and still not understand what he meant. (get over it)

Just go to a hardware or plastic/rubber supply. Here in Australia Clark Rubber sells sheets and strips of neoprene rubber which are ideal.

Why just name Maggotman, i'm sure that there's alot of people who are worse. Anyway i'm guessing that most people can spell but just can't be bothered to.

I just use multiple layers of bike inner tube.

Go and read every single one of maggotman's posts and see how you feel about that.

But guys, he did make a valid point. People are more likely to pay attention if your post is partially legible.

Ouch. The spelling in this thread is painful. From the topic title, I thought this was going to be a misplaced topic on image manipulation. (Look up "Shooping" with the double O rather than double P.)

The insistent use of u and ur is just plain annoying. If you can't be bothered to type the full words and press the shift key for the start of sentences and proper nouns - why should you expect people to be bothered to give you an answer?

With that in mind, my response:

Neque porro quisquam est qui dolorem ipsum quia dolor sit amet, consectetur, adipisci velit.

I'm not seeing your point Ragnarok, your trying to say they spell like that just for the sake of it?

There is no one who loves pain itself, who seeks after it and wants to have it, simply because it is pain?

Edit: Or do you mean the graphical and such meaning?

I actually mean both.

The phrase is the origin of the term Lorem Ipsum (i.e. meaningless, unintelligible text to fill the page with.)
What I'm reading passes as little better than that. Possibly too erudite a reference for Spudfiles though.

But the literal meaning is also appropriate - who actually wants the posts they read to have grammar so bad it's almost painful?

~~~~~

I'm saying that there's absolutely no point in using the ur abbreviation. There's no letter limit on this forum, at least not one that they're even within a fraction of reaching. Even I've never reached any kind of limit, and I've written posts into multiple thousands of words.

If people can't be bothered to spend that minuscule time and effort on their question, why should I spend a greater amount of time and effort on composing an answer?
When you're asking a question on this forum, you're asking a favour of the other members. It's common courtesy to not demand they have to decipher what you're asking first.

And like I've said dozens of times, it does you no favours as far as people's impressions of your intelligence. Honestly, do you think I'd be taken half as seriously on the forums if my posts were of that dubious quality?

P.S. While, I'm at it, the second "your" in your post should be "you're".

Could you understand my post or not? There's a difference between a completely incorrect post and one typo.

We could let go of the matter and continue on topic?
Wouldn't be polite to hijack cannonmonkey's thread. And i agree totally with inonickname and there isn't a problem with their typing, at least to most/few of us.

Im using layers of inner tubing BUT, it really isn't that effective. It will warp and misfire the spud. If you look in the plumbing section you might be able to find this water heater rubber thing with a hole in the middle that is pretty thick and sturdy which will be able to last quite long.
I couldn't really catch the name, but it has something got to do with a water heater pipe (placed somewhere inside i think).

Peace.
