  1. Eh? This is a general discussion forum. That's a news forum. Surely this is the correct place for discussion?
  2. I already made that point. I'm not bitching. I'm simply stating a fact that if people do a google search for "airsoft" and Arnies returns at the top of the list but the link is "dead" when they click it, they're not gonna check back. Arnie said (unless I misunderstood) that 400 people can access the site at any one time. The other day I noticed 257 guests viewing the site. Thus, only 150 members could acccess the site at the same time. Arnie has said that the problem is NOT caused by lack of bandwidth per-se but by demands on the hardware at specific times of day. It seems that
  3. Just wondering what the deal is. During the times I can't get access to Arnies, like for the last hour, is the site out for everybody or are there 400 lucky people who still get normal service? If so, can I ask what I have to do to get on that f*cking list? I just screwed up a post and have been buggering about for a f*cking hour waiting for the site to resurrect itself so I could edit my mistake. Obviously every other website I'm surfing is still fully functional. It's just Arnies that is a dead link. Arnies may well be the premier airsoft website on the planet but it wo
  4. You're right in your assumption. Thing is, on the academy SA80 the cocking handle just lies inside the plastic shell and is pressed into place by the gearbox. The only thing holding the cocking handle in place is a sort of raised square molded into the inside of the shell. It did occur to me that you could put a couple of screws through the shell to absorb the impact instead of the raised plastic but I think you'd also have problems with thefake bolt, itself, bending as the piston pushed it back repeatedly. It's a shame cos, as I say, the V1 gearbox is ideal for this sort of thin
  5. Very impressive looking. I must admit, I always swore I wouldn't bother repainting the grips on my Academy gun but it's becoming more and more apparent how poor they look. Incidentally, I was also looking at your idea about making the bolt move on the SA80. TBH, the V1 gearbox is idea for it cos the gearbox walls run the entire length of the 'box. The cylinder is not visible. I gotta say that this would have a good chance of working BUT I reckon the charging handle would quickly mangle up the Academy shell. Try allowing your charging handle to slam forward. Now do that 20 times i
  6. I could always question the competance of the current mod's. That'd bring it back to life.
  7. Give the guy a break. Arnies IS free. To digress slightly, how does it actually work with servers and stuff? I mean, I seem to recall that Arnie said, a year or so ago, he was moving to an American server. OTOH, didn't Ivery say that he was hosting Arnies site on his server? Just wondering how that works? Or is it that Ivery's server is in America and he hooked Arnie up with the same people?
  8. Mine? It's an Academy SUSAT which has been raped and fitted with the guts out of a CA reflex sight.
  9. There's one in the post to you. I believe it's getting sent by the same method as your M16 so you can expect to receive it any time in 2007.
  10. I've just heard a rumour that Arnie is having the server upgraded. I used secret leet haxx0ring skillz to discover the exact specifications for the upgrade, which is as follows:-
  11. They already tried that but found that the existing mod staff were cheaper to feed.
  12. Site is really, really, really slow ATM. 9 out of 10 refreshes results in a "server not found" error. I just posted to THIS thread but the board index isn't showing it so something's screwy.
  13. Try doing a member search for users with less than 1 post, or less than 5, or less than 20 and you'll soon see what percentage of the membership is active. Given that Marlowe has posted in this thread, you don't really have to look too far to see that "Global Moderator" tag under his avatar.
  14. Would it be possible to impliment some kind of search function which works by location> I think it's currently possible to search by country but the results I got when I tried it were a bit odd. I figure if there were 3 boxes you could enter a country, a state and a city and then other people would be able to locate you more easily. If you weren't happen letting people know the town you live in you could just enter the state. It just occurs to me that when a newb suffers any technical problems it's up to the good-will of everybody else to actually spot the thread and offer
  15. http://www.airsoftcore.com It would seem the ASC website got hacked by people who claim to not like the idea of toy guns. Maybe time to check our virtual chastity belt is properly secured?
  16. Wow! It's getting so you never know if your post is gonna go up or not. As I've said before, that's the kind of thing which will discourage people from typing long, useful, posts for fear they'll be wasting their time. [edit] Took 3 goes to get THIS to go up.
  17. Well, tell them they can keep visiting. They're clearly not from the home office.
  18. Nice tyo know we have so many people looking at the site. Do you know if it's registered users or "lurkers"? Of course, if they're all from a government IP you could just ban them so genuine airsofters can use the site rather than suits harvesting ideas and eavesdropping. [fake edit] Smileys added for fake levity.
  19. Erm, hate to raise the issue again but the site seems to be up and down like a yoyo at the moment. Chatting on IRC it would seem that various people are experiencing the same problems. It's a bit of a blow when you write out a bloody essay to help somebody and, when you click "submit post" you get a "page not found" error. :-(
  20. Are they named Cthulu and Azzeroth by any chance?
  21. You might want to bear that in mind the next time you read anything on the Redwolf site. As I've said before, the only thing you can believe on the Redwolf site is the price.
  22. Nice to get feedback. Thanks. Sorry I didn't see TripleAs question until now.
