Tell me what features you want to see on a new, improved Opchan.

I already have a big ol' list, and the platforms we're considering already do some things, but I want to hear your wildest imageboard fantasies.

I'm not really going to be addressing whether or not they're feasible here, but I am reading everything.

So I just now saw this, but...

/w/ is locked and unlisted, but it's still there if you want to peruse old threads.

The latest version of LynxChan supports locked boards, so we may elect to keep the old locked boards around on the new site.

As per the usual, any discussion you'd like to have there you could just as easily have here.

Been a while since we had us a good roll call. I'm sure some old trips lurk here, would be nice to hear if they're still alive.

to keep things interesting, it would be great to have a thread for all the old copypasta. Like shooting girl scouts delivering cookies, Peter Cottontail "get your fucking weapon if you don't want to die" Easter pasta, any of the old Opie stuff whatever it includes.

I got a couple I'll be posting, feel free to join in.

I love your videos but never have any idea of what's happening.

>>111640 >>111641

I kinda get it.

Follow up to >>111631. My new guy leaves to go have a baby or some lame excuse, and senior guy shows up to help. I kinda need his help for a few things, but most of the startup I'm fine with. While I try to do a thorough job and take advantage of our time on site, he just wants to fuck off and smoke in his truck. "Hey man, lets go smoke." "Nah, we got plenty of time." "Don't worry about that shit."

So electrical powerup is my olympic sport. He's more of a mechanical guy, but has like 10+ years of doing this. Working with him was like taking 3 steps back, and then wrapping an anchor chain around my waist. I basically have wait for him to fuck around trying to troubleshoot until I can get by him and actually figure out what's going on.

Then it's off for more second hand smoke.

My biggest problem with this guy is that I can't trust what he says. We joke he's 110% sure about things. 100% confident and 10% correct. And he's not lying, because he believes what he's saying. He just mis-remembers, or didn't understand, or connected two things that don't actually connect. Maybe too many drugs when he was younger?

Big customer sent us a drawing of a part. Supervisor sends it to the laser, looking at what the part is for, that was the correct call.

Part needs a few threads so I get it after it's lasered. I look at the drawing and see ridiculous shit like "holes [true position] 0.002 A, B", long story short they tolerance'd it pretty much 15 times too tight as the part would require. It's basically a plate that would hold a thing with regular bolts, it could be off 1/16th and it wouldn't make a fucking difference but blueprint is a blueprint.

So they chuck the lasered parts in the scrap bin and ask me what do. I say the drawing is dumb but if they want it to print, laser it out with extra material so I can just clean up the lasered surfaces so dimensions, locations, surface finish and other GD&T will be bang on.

What you see is a little re-pass just to adjust cutter compensation after running the first part. The lasered "blank" thing is held down with a few bolts undersized from final hole size, the outside is machined, the clamps are installed and then the screws are removed so the holes and threads can be machined to match the other features. Yes I deburred the plate that the part is sitting on after taking it off.

tl;dr that particular webm was what happens when a big company with lazy engineers throw money at stuff.

Whatever else I might be, first and foremost I'm a scientist. I didn't have time to do good research for a while there, but I don't think I'll ever stop being a light weapons geek. I've been getting into the groove again a little bit recently with the acquisition of a translated Soviet RPG technical manual, and it felt great.

Get the new site up and going and I'll probably finish that antiaircraft missile thread that was started so long ago.

Paging CC. Many years ago I bought some pipes off you and completely forgot everything about their make/model. I try to talk pipes with people and don't know what I have.

The longer stemmed one was made by Bjarne, who is dead now sadly.

The shorter one has a treble clef marking but I can't remember for the life of me who made it.

plz respond.

Started smoking this is Afghaniland (everyone in the squadron signed up for various tobacco of the month clubs since my shop had a $500 humidor in it).
Smells like rotting head cheese mixed with jizz when dry but is probably the best tasting smoke I have ever had. Very fruity.

As far as cigars go I found I liked any of the ones wrapped in sugary leafs and I also found out that genuine cubans are WAY overrated.

Slightly unrelated but a good warning:

If you ever find a partially smoked cigar in a tackle box that also had forgotten squid from a previous fishing trip in it DO NOT smoke the cigar on a dare.

Out of curiosity, has anyone here ever given tobacco snuff a try?

At one point in history it was the most common way to consume tobacco.
>> No. 111607 ID: e266a3
>Fusilier's Ration
That's a /k/ name for a pipe tobacco if I've ever seen one. Black cavendish and latakia seem to go together if blended properly and I'ver never had such a blend in flake cut before, so it looks like I'm going to have to go after it. Thanks for the tip.

As far as nasal snuff goes, I've had Chief Red Bull and Packard's Club. Can't say it was something I could enjoy or get used to, though it's probably hands-down the best buzz I've gotten besides from snus.

Had a little breakthrough last night. Smoking a Tatuaje Verocu last night, I was actually able to pick out subtleties. It was very slow and relaxed in the lounge, which helped a lot. I noticed a strong woody note, and something remnicent of an alcohol burn like one would find in a strong, dry wine. I tasted a strong difference between first and second half with wood and earth dominating and background flavors fading.
I hated it. Won't smoke it again. But the important thing is I fully appreciated it.

The Greenland Gap.
Why didn't submarine patrol planes fly out from Greenland in order to close the "Greenland Gap" (aka The Black Pit, the open area between the ASW air patrols between Iceland and Newfoundland)? Bad weather? Difficulty in operating airplanes out of Greenland? Difficulty in building air bases there? The gap would not be closed until 1943 when long-range ASW patrol planes were made and assigned to it and escort carriers were extensively used.

The USA had permission to build bases there. In April 1940, Nazi Germany occupied Denmark on its way to an invasion of Norway, and almost a year later, the United States signed the US-Danish Agreement on Greenland, which permitted the United States to establish military bases in Greenland. The US had a similar agreement with Iceland, built bases there and flew extensive patrols from there.

- The Mid-Atlantic gap was an area outside the cover by land-based aircraft, those limits are shown with black arcs (map shows the gap in 1941). Bluish dots show destroyed ships of the Allies.

Pretty much. Greenland was used more as a layover stop for ferry flights to the UK. It was easier to operate from Iceland, which had a big city and was also closer to the UK, and aircraft there could range further towards Norway and so on.
>Greenland played an important role in North Atlantic air traffic during the war, but the island's role as a major base for anti-submarine warfare assets was hampered by adverse weather, winter darkness, and difficult logistics. For a long period, a flight of six PBY Catalinas of VP-6(CG) was maintained at Bluie West One, carrying out a great variety of missions.

I would actually give that a try but I have no sculpting ability. My sister got all the art genes but I feel like this would be a really odd request.

If you know someone who could do it then maybe we could get a small group buy going.

Don't bother now. We are so fucked by default that there's no chance for you to know how deep the rabbit hole gets, what is the backdoor and what is a patch for it.

>adopted GPS tracking and listening devices instead of regular phones
Individually it hasn't been changed too much, the technology gets cheaper and more common, and this is the only difference. The problem is manpower, of course, qualified specialists capable of doing the effective and failsafe surveillance job - you are going to get less of them because of dwindling educational standards. On the other hand, corporation management think they will be able to control all the people with "big data" they receive, if they just going to mine as much as possible. I can't wait for this overgrown hyperstructure to fall down on their own heads.
