In due time. I gotta make her look pretty and mount her on a badass tripod thing. Oh the damage that will insue!

And as for GGDT, what is a typical number for the friction of the projectile?

I like to play blackjack. I'm not addicted to gambling, I'm addicted to sitting in a semi-circle.

I don't want to start a new thread for this so I will ask here: does anyone have any good Ideas to increase forum traffic I have put links on my site and told my friends but spudfiles never gets the traffic it deserves, since I've joined I've never seen over 20 members on at once, I am thinking of making a game and dedicating it to spudfiles but other than that, no ideas

well spudfiles is the busiest spudding forum in the world (as far as i know) and considering Spudding isn't exactly a mainstream hobby (at least here in the UK it isn't) i think Spudfiles is pretty busy, you'd be surprised how many members sign up then don't post because the can't be bothered or something...

just look at the member list and change the sort to "joined date" and "descending" and see how many joined in the last few days
http://www.spudfiles.com/forums/memberlist.html

the member list is quite interesting actually...

wow, 769 members have joined but haven't even been on the site since, another 500 or so where on for about a week then stopped coming what saddens me though is that its always the same people posting, I will have been a member for a month by Christmas day and I have seen the same people answering my n00b questions, sure this earns them my respect which I have for all the mods and the frequent posters including you Ali, but What I am saying is how can we replicate the 126 users online, I know things like that happen when a gun gets the front page of digg and similar sites so the traffic increases :idea: maybe I'll rat out Mr. Crowley to the NZ police and hopefully it'll attract attention and that will increase site traffic :D just joking, I'd never do that :twisted: . I am making a tower defense game, maybe the towers can be called: Solar's eclipse, chaos's S400 and lardas hybrid :idea:

No kidding. That is some swiftly moving dog food there. I want to see the 12' version. Unfortunately, the sound probably won't be as impressive.

Not the muzzle blast, perhaps, but I'm sure that it would be aurally compensated by the earth-shattering KA-BOOM generated by the projectile impacting with the target :D

ITWOST my semiauto marble gun is almost finished... all I have to do is to solder one joint and deal with loose o-rings
(they are 1mm too big and after several shots they fall out of the groves and get smashed by the bolt) :?

christmas terror has begun.. my parents are trying to force me to tidy my room.... I know I should do it but what the hell... I am soooo close

You can tell how awesome a cannon is by the pressure used.
