Is this just me?

Spoiler

Been there for what seems like months, whether I'm signed in or not. I'd have thought if it was something affecting everybody I'd have heard of it by now, not sure if its on my end or what. Not really a problem or anything just a mild annoyance.

 

Thanks.


Feels pretty good to be a Brit

Cheap chocolate First Strikes for all.

Perfect overbore at .75. Too bad they aren't sold outside the UK, they shoot laser accurate, I'd post a shooting video if I hadn't ate them already.


Chronographs

You'd think with such an important piece of equipment, someone would get it right. Everyone is no doubt familiar with these.

In which case, you're familiar with what an utter piece of shit that yellow thing is. I put a whole fucking pod though my gun trying to chrono it with that pile of shite, I was holding the button, not holding the button, doing it the right way up, upside down, right on the barrel, away from the barrel, infront of the barrel etc. I got it to detect a ball maybe 5 times. I don't need to say any more.

 

The grey thing is better, reads far more consistently, but not 100% of the time, atleast not for me. Also (just like the other sack of shit) it displays the first digit then the other two on a second frame, which is annoying. Also good fucking luck cronoing a pump with it.

 

Ahh the red brick, my friend. Simply rest your gun on it and fire away, knowing with full certainty that every shot will be measured with the utmost precision. Every field should have one.

 

Anyway, chronographs are shitty and annoying, that yellow thing should be banned.

 


Flatline on non-Tippmann gun

04 November 2013 - 01:08 PM

Not really much custom about it, but figured it would be better here than in equipment advice. So say I wanted to put a Flatline on an Autococker threaded gun, whats the easiest way of doing so? I've thought of just using a 98 to Autococker adapter, and using a 98 Flatline, but adapters like that seem hard to find, and I'm not entirely sure that would work out since the flat line has to be in a specific orientation. Also thought of doing some king of magic with the thread thing that goes inside the A5 body, but I can't figure a way of making that work in a convenient way.

 

Anyone done it/got suggestions?

 

Thanks.


Monitors

18 September 2013 - 03:13 PM

I think perhaps the most distressing thing in my life is the certainty that I will never have a perfect monitor. I had lived long enough with backlight bleed around my last monitor, blue haze around the edges, and a crappy cloud effect/backlight being nonuniform that was easily noticeable when dragging windows around. I had to return it, but I knew all along the one I got back would be just as bad.

 

Replacement was going great at first, other than the fact that it was an obvious refub of some shitlords old one, bezel covered in scratches. No backlight bleed, much better backlight uniformity. I rejoiced as fixed the one stuck pixel it has. Now a new problem has arisen, colour/contrast uniformity, something my old one didn't have. After much distress wondering why I couldn't get the colours looking like my old one, I realized that the contrast shits the bed the lower down the screen you go, take something light grey, take something white, put them both at the top of the screen, drag them to the bottom of the screen and they both become white as though by magic. 

 

I can hardly describe the feeling. Overwrought by utter disgust at how whites become slightly darker at the top of the screen, it is almost too much to take. I demand perfection, yet I know in reality it is a shining plateau of illusion, such a thing is unattainable. Right now, I'm having to look at text that further up is darker than down here, it makes me sick.

 

Fuck monitors.
