I got a simple question. How did the "byzantine" style get its name?

http://www.seekyee.com/Slings/howtos/tut2.htm

That link isn't loading either.  Thanks for the heads up though!  I'll give it a try from my work computer.  Might be something weird with my Internet connection and the host of that site.

I'm gonna ask a simple question. What type of glande (in terms of shape) is the best?
 
Hi cram;
    Personally I have the best results with oval shaped smooth river stones about the size of a chicken's egg.  For me it's very easy to get a good rifled spin and consequent good distance and accuracy with them.

I'm trying to make a sling and I'm mostly aiming for accuracy. So what I'm asking is how long should my sling be, how big the pouch has to be, and what type of rope it should be.

    A good rule of thumb is to make your sling's folded length half of your height.  Try that first but experiment with other lengths also. Everyone is different.  There are many excellent materials to make slings from, both synthetic and natural.  My favorite is jute.  It's easy to work with, cheap as dirt, and makes a great looking sling. How long the pouch has to be depends on what sort of projectile you'll be slinging.  For general  use I like my pouches about six inches long.  For tennis balls or snowballs you'd want a bigger pouch.

Byzantine style got its name from copying the starting position on Byzantine coins.

    Golf balls are one of my favorite slinging projectiles.  If you get a good backspin on one it will fly amazingly far.

I don’t understand the question. What do you mean by “fibers”?
