Some of you might have noticed the forum went down for a bit Sunday (March 20th).  I tried to debug some of the buggy behavior since the newer forum software went live during the last site revision.  Hopefully somethings are better.  Still don't know why the login doesn't stick when you come back.  Might have to do something with the new hosting company....

Let me know if you have any problems,
Chris

Dear Chris,

Could the new service have anything to do with why I can't access my speed slinging and other videos posted here under "Rapid Fire"?  Are you having the same problems?

Sincerely,

magnumslinger

Slinging.org people are progressive preservers of pre-historic protective, pantry-packing, and post-paleolithic parabellum practices...and they're also generally REALLY COOL!  Their bootlaces are their arsenal, and the world is their ammo dump!

I've also added three new links to the forum title bar.  A new page on how to post images, a way to get back to the main page, and a way to contact me. Smiley

Magnumslinger,

The movies weren't migrated when the site switched servers.  I've re-uploaded them, so you should be set.

Thanks for all the work Chris!

By the way, Is nwmanitow's figure 8 sling video accessable? I haven't been able to get it to work. It may be just me?

Where is the address/link?  In a post or an article?

Here is the applicable Thread: http://www.slinging.org/forum2/yabb/YaBB.cgi?board=1;action=display;num=10819155... I still have a copy of the video on my computer if needed.


And btw, I have one more final to take then suddenly I find myself with some free time. I'm finally going to put that article together on the slinging style I use with new, higher quality video, from several angles, and with brightly colored ammo. And, if I get get Johnny's permission I want to include his illustrated diagram as well.

JUICY!

Just a thought.....integrating a high brightness light and slinging at dusk or smoke generation in daylight would be impressive.

The "lightning Flash" strobe fireworks work very well here.

Even better, (for the do it yourselfer) is drilling your ammo and packing with the following and allowing to harden around a small fuse:

Timing the fuse is easily accomplished with a bit of trial and error and has posed no real hazard in my setups.  But then, I use a pocket with a 1/2" hole in the bottom.  I am sure it could easily be made to work reliably in other setups as well.

Haven't tried smoke in ball ammo, yet.

Or how about a sling dart with lipstick video camera and transmitter with split mirror taking footage during release and back toward the slinger as well as forward during flight....played back in partial slow motion during sling event....ramping up to full speed soon after launch....

Oh, and still with smoke, of course!

Could be a great sling season, following the winter of my discontent....

Anybody watch leg 2 of the "Milan Derby" Champion's League quarter final? I'm a little curious as to why flares (or drums, or chanting for that matter) haven't ever caught on in North America. Makes for pretty darned impressive footage.

Combine the smoke/flare ammo, some of your pyro flashes and the night slinging thread and we're starting to push the limits of how much excitement a simple slinging fan can stand! I bet your video dart would get some pretty cool footage if you wedged a chunk of "white" flare for local illumination and then heaved it down the flight path of a half dozen "smokers"
