Thanks, but Iīd probably wanna do something out of metal so it better withstands weather. But for now later I may just put a few sticks in the ground with cat food tins on.

Don't use metal for low caliber bullets, they ricochet; don't they?

Yeah, but with eye protection and enough distance itīs relatively safe. And itīs safer with a small caliber than with a high-powered rifle as is seen in Hickokīs videos. Plus, I think Iīm gonna try and make some swinging plates and not shoot at any fixed metal.

From what I heard in that first vid; metal targets are not supposed to ever be fixed.

I wondered if a bale of hay behind a cardboard target - then slip a metal disc in the middle of the bale to get your "DING" sound.

So what is this special project. . . or are you just a big tease? tongue.gif

Woke up to a white desert this morning. Our second snow of the season. Just enough to barely cover the ground and already melting. It'll be long gone by lunchtime. Perfect! biggrin.gif
mirocu
I just looked at Februaryīs pic from Buffy, and youīre calling me a tease? laugh.gif


Well, itīs a corny sort of project and you have to almost be me to understand why I did it tongue.gif It involved getting various kinds of long branches and pile them up on the small strip of land between the two roads so they block the view from our neighbour. The way we have our cottage and the way he has his buildings makes for a straight view across and itīs really not far. Since Iīm a private sort of guy crow I needed to do this.. biggrin.gif


And this ties in with my hate for surveillence cameras all over the world. I may not be a criminal out to do bad stuff, but I still donīt want anyoneīs eyes on me whenever I exit the house.
Acadian
Ahah! Disguising your snowy forest hideout! smile.gif

It was better before he built his big workshop so close to our cottage. Though itīs not that close itīs not far away enough either wink.gif

Oh wow. I've missed RW a lot, hardly used to miss it back in the Craig Charles day. Even remember a lot of the jargon - 'srimech', for example. Perfect choice of host, Dara too...

Oh oh. That sounds suspiciously like the start of a '...walk into a bar' joke. Tread warily, my friend...

I'm now looking forward to Robot Wars returning more than I was before, and I hadn't even been aware that that was possible laugh.gif

You forgot the pork scratchings. Pork scratchings for everyone!

We officially have lights and heat at my son's house; although the heater is making an odd screaming noise inside the house for some odd reason. But it is cranking out the heat big time. I shut it off till I could find the source of the shrieking noise inside it. It sounds like the fan is protesting; maybe it needs oil or cleaning; maybe it is hitting against something in there. Whatever it is, it needs fixed.

The water is also set up to the house now, but I have also shut it off temporarily till I can have a plumber find the leaks we have been told it has. (Plumbers come tomorrow).

Whoever lived there before didn't bother to label any of the breakers, so today I marked off the heat pump and the hot water heater. I'm going back with a black sharpee and fill in the rest so I know what each breaker does.

Today we got a quote on tree trimming; I am still reeling in shock from that.

I'd rather fix the most complex of computer problems than even think about meddling with central heating boilers. I think they're actually magickal devices, they have daemons trapped inside them or something. (Hey, maybe that's the source of the shrieking?)

No it's banshees that shriek. Demons roar, I think. Or is that Hippogryphs?
mirocu
Sounds like progress, mALX. Problems are to be expected but nothing major it seems. Iīm glad you have it (sort of) up and running happy.gif

Banshees wail - well, so my old mum used to say, claimed she used to hear them going on half the night, can't have been easy getting any shuteye. But, yeah, not demons. So what entity shrieks then, we should help mALX diagnose this..?

Oh, and I suppose a hippogryph would make eagle-like noises or a sort of raptorish whinny if it also mixed in its horsey nature...
