Yes I left things out, yes I added more to on subject than the other. Truth is I've played more Airsoft than NERF so I know more about it. What I wrote could only be considered a base line for the essay.
And who ever said 748 words. Wow. Way to nit pick. 4784 Characters in total in the entire post.
If the OP wants to use my essay as a base guide and add to it, he can. If he wants to use the one he has, he can.
Now I remember why I don't come here any more.
Not to be added . After I wrote that last night, I was dead tired and a little confused why some one would want a community of strangers to proof read, and grammatically correct his essay. Plus of all the essays I wrote during my most active days here, I never asked you guys to proof read or correct my essays.
That's never a good sign on something that's for an English class.
Nerf is a game played with foam dart shooting blasters, where as Airsoft is played with plastic BB shooting guns. In both game types, shooting is involved, but Nerf is a glorified game of tag where as Airsoft is better described as military simulation.
NERF is a hobby game played with plastic blasters, where Airsoft is a 'simulation' game played with replica military equipment. In both games the object is to 'tag' out the opposing players while trying to stay alive on your team. There are many differences to the games, and each have their own list of pros and cons. In this article I will be discussing the pros and cons of each hobby.
NERF blasters are generally available at any major retail giant, whilst Airsoft is sold in Sporting Good stores (i.e Dick's Sporting Goods, Sports Authority, Gander Mountain etc.) or specialty stores located in the US, China, or Japan. The cost difference in NERF compared to Airsoft is quite noticeable with the cheapest blaster (the Nite Finder) costing around eight dollars, and the most expensive (The Vulcan Chain blaster a hefty fifty dollars). Airsoft is generally more expensive but have a wide range of qualities. The cheapest (price and quality) is around five dollars or ten dollars respectively. The higher quality an item is, the more it costs. Two extreme examples are Classic Army (Produced in China) and WELL (also produced in China). Classic Army replica weapons cost any where from $200 to $600, because of their high quality standard. WELL is on the cheapest side of Airsoft ranging from ten dollars to thirty dollars.
There is also an age factor in both NERF and Airsoft. NERF has no age limit. You can be as young or old as you can handle the game. Blasters are readily available and you don't need to be a specific age to buy a blaster. Airsoft does have an age requirement, and is that you have to be Eighteen years or older to buy a replica gun. The reason being Airsoft guns have higher velocities and range compared to a NERF blaster. With out eye protection in Airsoft you can loose an eye, or tooth because of the velocities from the gun. A NERF blaster has a lesser chance of putting out an eye, but there still always a chance given the type of hobby these games are.
With NERF blasters you fire foam 'darts' propelled by slightly compressed air. Factory darts cost around thirty-six cents each. But there is a home made option for NERF. a dart called a 'stefan' created by a NERFer, Stephan Moor. The darts are made from a material called Foam Backing Rod (its real purpose is to seal gaps in windows). They are roughly the same material density as factory made darts, but are mad eat home for a fraction of the cost. The foam backer rod is cut to a desired length, heat straight and then tipped with a weight and hot glue. The darts are just as safe as factory darts, but increase range compared to factory darts. Airsoft guns fire a six millimeter plastic ball at high velocites (ranging any where from 200 feet per second to 600 feet per second). The balls used in Airsoft are made in different weights to increase range or achieve a desired velocity (ranges are in the ball park of eighty feet to 300 feet). The production cost of ammunition for Airsoft is a fraction of a penny, but you cannot create your own ammo. With NERF how ever you can pick up your darts you just fired and keep playing.
The game play for NERF varies greatly from Airsoft. With NERF you have a set number of lives (usually three). After those three lives are expended you must count to fifteen and announce you are reentering the game. In Airsoft you have only one life and once its used you must wait for a medical officer on your team to heal you, or you must walk back to your team designated spawn point and wait a set amount of time (usually ten minutes but it depends on the event you are attending). There are also major clothing discrepancies in both hobbies. With NERF, its a casual game where you can wear just about anything and still be comfortable while playing. In Airsoft players usually wear Military surplus uniforms in their teams designated color (most common are greean and tan [substitute brown on occasoins] but blue and black are used).
The differences are many in the hobby types with one crowd favoring one game type over another. I prefer NERF because its more relaxed and inexpensive compared to Airsoft where there are strict rules to adhere by.
Check that over. If you like it good, if not then tough shit. I just basically wrote your essay over in about 5000 words. It should get you an A. Your welcome.
Other than that the dashboard is not going to be that different looks wise.
Also what project are you doing? I'm just curious.
EDIT: Also test the spring constant any way even if you get an answer...it'll show that you know how to calculate forces and constants with out help, plus you'd probably get a better answer than on here.
I got the above mentioned issues fixed. It was just stuff I had to do that I didn't see at the cmd screen like run the license file in cmd. What matters is its working. I'm just a little perplexed as to why I got 2.5 million steps.
Funny how a necro can be good .
I ran the console application set up according to both cx's and FAH's instructions but I get a "-configonly flag exiting" error. I allowed the application in my Fire Wall but I got the same error after doing that. Could my Anti-Virus (Avast!) be causing the problem?
I'm going to run through everything one more time and see if that fixes it or if I'm going to have to start over.
EDIT: Now it shoots me a new error instead of being flagged. I see that a Work Directory was not found. It creates a new one where I get several more branched errors:
Could not open work queue, generating new queue..
-Preparing to get new work unit..
+Attempting to get work packet..
-Connecting to assignment server
-Successfully connected to<xxx.xxx.xxx>(I won't post the real IP because I don't know if its unique to each ID)
+News from folding@Home: Welcome to folding@home
Loaded Queue successfully
+Could not connect to work server
Then it retrys and gets no where. Was the server stopped or am I just experiencing a normal error?
If you are looking for dimensions then just measure the tanks and compare the specs. If they are fairly close to the same sizes then there you go a suitable candidate for your mod.
If you want to find volume of a cylinder (which I assume an ATxK is) then you use this formula: 3.14xradius2(squared)xheight of the cylinder
You would do that for both tanks and get the answers and compare them. If they are close to the same answer (I think in cubic inches?) then that answer question 2.
Either way good luck with this!
EDIT: You guys need to get a super script code tag...
Its probably what the server spits out for each user in the background as it processes the raw code into what we see in front of us now.
It's nothing bad, it isn't anything evil its just the sites certificate, and cookie ID. I think...
Don't waste your money, it can be spent on something else.
This thread will close and most likely everyone that posted here banned. Hope you enjoyed your stay gents.
Was it really worth it?
L96 made by TSD Sports. Shot at about 390 FPS with .25 gram BB's and had a max of range of about 175 feet and deadly accurate to 155 with no upgrades.
And my Side arm. KWC M9 with Taurus trade marks. Got it on sale at depot53 before they went out of business.
Shoots at about 285 FPS with .25 gram BB's efective out to about 50-55 feet.
But really its up to you. You can try it and find out on your own.
I can how ever provide a screen shot of my C++ compiler.
If its too big I have another version. Its just a basic number function. I can't do anything overly complicated...yet.
Thank you boba. At least you know the importance of Google in finding solutions.
It was fun, but the problem I have is that only a small amount of people can connect to me, and recently it seems like I'm having more and more issues with connecting to the people I could before. I've checked all my ports for the Xbox 360 and thats not the issue. So if I host another game (which I probably won't) then let it be known that you might not be able to connect to me. but it was fun playing with bamblack.
It was fun playing with vvolf3 but we need more people. Shoot me a friends request.
I'll be testing out a mod controller if I can get one of my friends extras (see what happens when you get RROD 5 times running.) The fact people need one to win is what is pushing to make one for myself.
Man internet sarcasm just doesn't get the point across like it should.
Oh and what are you going to verbally assault us some more.
OK so assuming I'm not doing anything Friday:
Friday February 20th COD4 at 0830 PM. We will play a medley of live and private matches.
If I only have a few people in the party all we will do is play live. We will not be in party chat.
Also "mabie" isn't a word...but maybe is.
My 300th post should have been an article...
The last link is to a UK based forum. I'm sure from there you can get other links to different forums in the UK and other Countries. Good luck!
Just because it's Winblows doesn't mean it's always a virus. Most likely an issue with your start up.exe package or corruption in an other major file.
When cold temperature is compressing the gas it limits its ability to provide movement in the container which in turn reduces the effective power. In this case your titan was drawing in cold air that was compressed and wouldn't be able to fire the dart or provide enough power to shoot it far. Its just one of those things that you have to deal with in cold climates. Next time you go to shoot it pump it up inside your house where the air is warm and then shoot it outside and you might get better results.
