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.
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.
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.
'So when Tyger decided out of the blue, to talk shit about me on his blog and end a 5 year friendship, he must have known that Youtube was sending me a $500 Gift Card for reaching 100,000 subscribers.... Hey Tyger, when you reached 100,000 subscribers, what did you buy with your gift card? Oh no worries, you only need another 95,000 more to go'
