the internet needs less pop-ups and more potato cannon trajectory and ballistics models

SpudFiles doesn't have any popups. If you are seeing popups while on SpudFiles, then you may have some <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spyware">Spyware</a>

Yes, I am the guy that owns & operates SpudFiles (along with our extremely helpful moderators).

No not pop-ups on this site, just random junk that comes when you search on google like "OMG SMILEY FACE MANIA" or "FREE CURSORS" or "congratulations, you have won a free ipod" it is seriously annoying

Really? Bit of a funny life style choice if a English toff is your dream man... :D
Let me be absolutely straight... no pun intended... I haven't said that as an insult to homosexuals, nor am I homophobic. I have a few friends who are gay, and I think no less of them, their opinions or choices.
Of course, this statement assumes that you are male - if not, no offence is intended to females. I have several friends who are... ah,forget it, I'll offend someone at some point anyway.


By the way, if I hadn't pointed it out, Jackssmirkingrevenge probably would have.

On to a more sensible point, the woman that narrates that clip has a really annoying voice.

If you're a little unsure about different figures, the tool I'm writing is designed to make it possible for as many people as possible to be able to understand and use it, but without any loss of functionality or accuracy.

http://www.bcvids.com/dload.php?action=file&file_id=24

Basically, after a little bit of math, you fill the meter pipe with propane to a certain psi. Once the propane is released in the chamber, and assuming your math was accurate, there should be just the right amount of propane in the chamber to cause combustion.

Also, you don't have to worry about doing the math yourself. There are several calculators out that will do it for you. One is included with Pete Zaria's plans, and lots of them can be found here.

Yeah, I knew what you meant, but the opportunity was too hard to pass up.

Of course, or else I wouldn't have responded with all of my weird comments.

Well... maybe I'm weird enough anyway.

That video was worth the wait to download! It was the bomb! All fired up! What a gas to watch! But not a good advertizement for our hobby.

Hey I built one and they are fun, but not to be over rated...they offer a lot to be desire in the "tossing flamming boulders at Nazi neighbors" department of things, but still very educational and should be built before you try and replicate the Warwolf....
