Re: 2018 Hurricane Season

Not a whole lot, just checkin in on folks in harms way this week, I have some friends and family out that way, but pretty far inland. They're more worried about mudslides and road washouts than flooding. I seem to remember reading something about the NC legislature banning the use of sea level rise ...

Re: 2018 Hurricane Season

I seem to remember reading something about the NC legislature banning the use of sea level rise data for coastal planning purposes, too People were told to prepare to evacuate communities up and down a stretch of coastline already identified as particularly vulnerable to rising sea levels due to cli...

Re: CR123 Batteries

One note about "18650 vs 2xCR123" is that its not only the voltage difference: they're physically not the same dimensions. a CR123 is substantially thinner (2mm less) than a 18650 as well as not being slightly longer than 1/2 of an 18650 (340mm) and many lights are too skinny to accept an 18650.

Re: Can someone explain this style of blade to me?

I'm sure your blades are top tier, man. All your work is great.

I just don't see how they do a machetes job better than a $40 stamped machete like the 100 million made before it, is all.

Re: Can someone explain this style of blade to me?

People will take any cheap tool and customize it until its ridiculously expensive. I've seen people selling forged machetes for $200. Or CNC'd shit. Machetes are supposed to be cheap as hell and made out of stamped flat stock, but whatever, people can buy what they want I guess. a $200 machete certa...

It's that time of year when ZS asks mankind to fulfill their ancient compact with the Vampires, supplying them with volunteer blood to keep them from getting via more unsavory means.

Does this thing still work?

ZSC-001 abandonded the forums about 5 years ago for more modern social media platforms, but have recently decided it's time to come back and start talking about what we're doing.

Re: Active Topic Link?

Sorry about the bump back to prosilver, the PHPBB upgrade process made us remove all the old incompatible styles, of which subsilver (the most common style everyone used) was one. I just installed a new style called AllenStyle-subsilver that looks as close to the old one as is feasible. Most of the ...

I will when it comes back up. We're still closed for business until we redo the store portion of the website and re-enable payment processing for anything. The PHP hack that was injecting malware into the site was just some userspace BS that didnt have access to the store, but now that we're looking...

To Everyone: The forums are back up but we're going to upgrade to PHPBB 3.2 and get off this old-ass version we've had for too long. Everyone is getting moved to the default PHPBB style, Prosilver, and if we can easily install some other themes after the upgrade, we will, but a bunch of these are wa...
