Howdy from South Kakalaki!
Dec 29th, 2020 at 4:06pm
 
I rediscovered this forum last year and naturally started reading the most recent posts first.  As I read back in time, I noticed some grumbling about newbies asking the same questions over and over again.

I didn't want to be "that guy" so I went all the way back in time and read everything in chronological order.  Whew!

It took me a little over a year, but I'm all caught up.  I'm not sure how many slings I've made in that time, but my wife makes me keep them in the shed (except the ones in various coat pockets). Wink

Happy to finally join y'all!

Welcome in from the shadows Sir, and Howdy from South Texas!

That's some serious dedication to read everything in reverse order.  Topics rise and fall from prominence over the years, so it's pretty difficult to follow the stream of conversations after they occur. 

Well, since you've so judiciously stalked the forums in silence, you already know the next thing we're going to ask for is photos of your slings! Grin

It's a rite of passage to struggle to upload a photo on the forum and end up posting a picture 4x as big as you expect it to be Cheesy

Easy way to do it without problems-

Download imgur. Post your photos on your account under “hidden” so only those with the link see it. Long click or right click and select copy post link. Then click the image button above the underlined U at the top of this text box and copy paste in it. Viola- your picture is posted. (Ok, easyish.)

Welcome by the way. My goodness...reading all this forum is quite the task. I shudder to think of some of the things I’ve said over the years lol. Glad you finally joined us though and hopefully you stick around for awhile.  Smiley

I still shudder whenever Morphy speaks.

Easiest way to post photos is from an iPhone. Select the image, choose Medium size, then post it.

That requires having an iPhone which is a far bigger hassle than my convoluted method. I guess I’ll have to try that.  Roll Eyes

   Welcome from New Jersey.  Of course if you read all of the posts you already knew I was going to write that.  Reading everything in the forum is quite a chore.  I'm impressed.

@CA, kakalaki is a colloquialism for “Carolina”

Very good!  North Cackalacky, South Kakalaki.  There's debate on the derivation of the nickname, but my favorite is that Kakalaki sounds like the German word for cockroach.  Icelandic is spelled almost the same way.  We have plenty here.  They're huge.
