I am in fact alive and well. It's funny because a bunch of my friends out here have been watching all the old videos and want to start nerfing. We've already got a club on campus that runs huge assassin games with water pistols, so we might actually have a respectable nerfing force in the near future. The only problem is, everytime I pick up my nitefinder and start getting nostalgic, I realize I should to be working on organic chemisty. That's life I guess...
**Story addition: So I found a BBB in a Target in New Jersey while I'm buying shit for my room...and it's like 15 bucks so I scream like a little girl and throw it in the cart. I keep it new in box for like 2 weeks, and wonder whether or not I should try to sell it on ebay (remembering the days when a BBB was almost as much as an Xbow). Well apparently nobody told me (or maybe I'm not on the forums enough) that they re-released it. It's almost better though, because now I don't have any mental hangups about using it like it was meant to be used...for shooting people walking from the shower back to their room.
East Coast Sucks. I'm ready for a bona fide feud. Although, there could be some serious controversy if I ended up in New Jersey for the next four years...I could be the first trans-continental nerfer in HISTORY! If I were in New Jersey for college, I might have a serious nerfing identity crisis.
Left Coast Rules.
i will be there for at least a little while tomorrow. i'm getting better, and i'm just going to nerf until i can't breathe anymore. although, first i have to find some working guns and darts...
Hope you're feeling better! Are you going tomorrow?
could you throw up some pictures? maybe they already exist and i'm just lazy. glendora is fine with me, its much closer than irvine. if i'm remembering correctly, glendora is pretty central to where most people are, except it makes the trip from san diego probably 30 minutes longer. the nice thing about glendora is that its right near the 210, 605, and 57. anyway, i'm a second-semester senior very soon so i'm definately down for a war.
Now, the new CAFF location is really working out well. Granted, it's all the way up here in Glendora, so I don't think you'd want to move YANO that far from Irvine. It can be a heck of a drive. But it does have an urban area like the one at Venado, plus a tree-filled park next door, two playgrounds, some open fields, basketball courts, handball walls, table/bench combos, etc.

i mean my user ID # (1CAB516...) is different on the other computer (1CAC412...). maybe that number regenerates every time...i should write it down. once the other computer finishes a work unit, i'm sure i can troubleshoot it. i know i spelled the name the same way.
Edit: what exactly do you mean by "rawray7" having two different user names? If you mean the hash value after the connection attempt, that's normal. Also normal for both machines to be cpu:01 - that's to distinguish the CPUs for multi-processor machines.
use sch. 40, and make the brass fit by wrapping electrical tape around the ends of the barrel, then epoxy it, like this
if you are near the sierra madre goldline station, i could give you a ride over. have you been to any of our YANO wars? i don't recognize your name. anyway, and if you're not too out of the way i could probably give you a ride over.
Oh man, i'd really like to go to this one.
what bus would i take from the gold line station at sierra madre to get there?
It's foothill transit i believe, but the website doesn't help at all, its just a big jumble of poorly animated flash blobs and lines.
i'm going, and my friend is going.
we'll see if maybe more people will go.
I wouldn't put in a larger spring because the stress points behind the plunger are really weak. Try giving it a spring stretch, cook it if you need to. If that doesn't do it for you, get some mini Bungies. And remember, there's nothing like good old making it up, thats what most of us do, so don't expect to have every detailed drawn out for you. Practice makes perfect.
Faine, as a writer an thorough disillusioner of many x-bow mod seekers - i found out after i wrote my mod that there is no good replacement spring for the x-bow that you can find in any standard hardware store. I've never found one in 3 years of looking both in real- and cyber-space. don't replace the spring - don't even think about it. if you are getting shitty performance, the only thing i can point you to that Talio hasn't mentioned is barrel/dart size. The x-bow needs a long barrel, with a relatively constricting piece on the gun end. look at my mod on this site for a great barrel. I have nerfed with no one with a better x-bow barrel system than mine*
*neonerfer's x-bow rocks mine anyday, but his barrel system is the same. He also uses a very strong bungee - which i would recommend to anyone. bungees are good.
boy, i'm glad i caught this one early. I'd like to announce that i am the first person to say:
I think I'm actually more okay with semen than saliva, I don't know why.
WHAT THE FUCK?
...and i had just convinced myself again that nerfers were normal.
Funny, I like it. Thanks, Julie. You rock.
So, we've all been sick as dogs, and I wasn't able to edit the war footage until now.
Here's a preview. Please right-click and save to your hard drives.
Music video coming soon!
if you're sick,
it is the best.
there's only one amongst us capable of such a task, and at the moment he seems pretty tied up with karma. it looks like this is just one case that will never be solved.
I think someone needs to actually measure the resistance of both springs with some weights using the same system to compare them.
