Topics I've Started
22 February 2012 - 09:54 AMHey Guys,
So my Sly Profit's colour has started to peel from the mask. The mask is out of warranty so an RMA is out of the question at this point.
Beneath the colour is a nice shiny chrome finish that I think I will keep. The problem I'm having is removing the remainder of the colour to make it nice and uniform.
Has anyone had experience with this? The colouring on the mask doesn't seem to be a paint but rather some form of a plastic shrink-wrap type covering so it sort of peels away cleanly. Would anyone have any recommendations for removing this, I've heard trying to heat it but haven't tried yet.
I can provide more details/pics if anyone needs, just looking for some community input from someone who's hopefully had more experience cleaning up masks for custom looks more than I have.
23 July 2011 - 01:15 PMHey guys, I recently did a bit of work for my phantom but realized my bolt assembly's threads are trashed. I need to order myself a new bolt assembly from somewhere but am having problems finding a dealer since the guy I used to use has closed down. Can anyone recommend a good CCI Phantom dealer in Canada (preferably) that I can use to order new parts from? Alternatively I'll buy parts off anyone who may be parting theirs out.
Send me a message or reply here and I'll get back to you ASAP.
Disclaimer: I may be slow to respond, I've been extremely busy with getting a few things off the ground with a new job and other stuff so I'll do my best to reply in a quick manner. Stay classy you guys.
29 November 2010 - 02:18 PMI'm looking to sell some brand new Empire Contact TZ Pants.
They're size XL and have never been used (the tags are still attached).
Looking to sell them for $100CAD (OBO). I'm currently not looking for any trades.
I can do Paypal and will provide shipping prices for the company you prefer (it may take me a day or so to get back to you).
I can provide pictures if you *really* need but like I said they are brand new and exactly as you'd see on any website.
Post in this thread or send me a PM if you're interested. I'll do my very best to respond ASAP.
10 June 2010 - 08:28 AMI just need to get this off my chest. For the last 12 hours of my job I've been attempting to crack one problem in a project I'm working on. I'm to the point where I want to stab my monitor but something makes me think I'll just end up hurting myself .
Currently I am designing applications for IPTV to be used by major service providers but need to create an application that polls a web server in the background to check for updates. Basically I need an application to run behind your TV experience so that you can still access the menu/guide/channel flip/etc. without having to close the application... but the two 'needs' basically contradict each other. One seemingly can't get done without the other breaking.
Quick, someone give me some revolutionary tips for coding. I've heard all the "take a walk", "sleep on it" things before and they're not working. I can't really ask for assistance because I'm the only person in my office working on this project and no one else has the slightest idea what I'm doing.
I'm in one of those situations where my boss wants something by tomorrow, but I've hit a choke-point that unless I can solve this, nothing will work.
21 April 2010 - 12:55 PMFor anyone who hasn't seen the latest episode of South Park its about celebrities threatening legal action against South Park unless they turn over the Islamic profit Mohammad to them. The episode gets into a whole issue where the people are afraid to show Mohammad because of the Islamic reaction against those who draw pictures/depict their profit. This turned up recently in response to the episode. Ironic? Yep.
Quote(CNN) -- A radical Islamic website says despite a provocative post -- warning the creators of "South Park" that they risk violent retribution for depicting the Prophet Mohammed in a bear suit -- the site is calling simply for protest, not violence.
Revolutionmuslim.com, based in New York, was the subject of a CNN investigation last year for its radical rhetoric supporting "jihad" against the West and praising al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden. Its organizers insist they act within the law and seek to protect Islam.
On Sunday, Revolutionmuslim.com posted an entry that included a warning to "South Park" creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone that they risk violent retribution -- after the 200th episode of the cartoon series last week included a satirical discussion about whether an image of the prophet could be shown. In the end, he was portrayed disguised in a bear suit.
"We have to warn Matt and Trey that what they are doing is stupid," the posting on Revolutionmuslim.com says, "and they will probably wind up like Theo Van Gogh for airing this show. This is not a threat, but a warning of the reality of what will likely happen to them."
Read CNN blog about RevolutionMuslim.com's post
Dutch filmmaker Theo van Gogh was stabbed to death on a street in Amsterdam, Netherlands, by an Islamic extremist in 2004. He became the target of radical Muslims after releasing a short film about oppression of Islamic women in Europe.
Abu Talhah al Amrikee, the author of the post, told CNN it was meant to show those offended by the depiction of Mohammed how they can voice their opposition, including by sending letters to the South Park's creators. The group is also considering demonstrations.
The posting provides the addresses of Comedy Central, which airs "South Park," and the show's production company. A spokesman for Comedy Central said they had no comment on the posting.
Over still photographs of Parker, Stone, van Gogh and others, the website runs audio of a sermon by the radical U.S.-born preacher Anwar al-Awlaki, who is now in hiding in Yemen. The sermon, recorded some time ago, talks about assassinating those who have "defamed" the Prophet Mohammed -- citing one religious authority as saying "Harming Allah and his messenger is a reason to encourage Muslims to kill whoever does that."
U.S. officials say al-Awlaki is on a list of al Qaeda leaders targeted for capture or assassination.
Al Amrikee said the purpose of including the al-Awlaki sermon in his posting was to remind Muslims that insulting the prophet is a severe offense for which the punishment in Islam is death.
The clip ends with a warning on a graphic directed at Parker and Stone, saying "The Dust Will Never Settle Down."
It's a word game, federal officials tells CNN, that allows the group to post support of terrorists, like the alleged Fort Hood, Texas, shooter, on its website. The website is protected under free speech laws of the United States.
"Certainly the comment on this website is very ugly, but it is certainly not specific enough to get anyone arrested," CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin said.
Last year, CNN asked one of the founders of the radical group in New York to explain its philosophy.
Younes Mohammed chose his words carefully, telling CNN he saw nothing wrong with Americans dying in the September 11, 2001, terrorist attack.
"I don't think it was wrong," Mohammed said. "I think it was justified."
He added, however, he does not encourage any violence on U.S. soil.
And Mohammed said he also doesn't see anything wrong with his messages -- he dislikes the United States and he yearns for a Muslim world.
"We're commanded to terrorize the disbelievers and this is a religion ...," Mohammed said. "The Quran says very clearly, in the Arabic language ... terrorize them. It's a command from Allah."
"I define terrorism as making them fearful so that they think twice before they go rape your mother or kill your brother or go onto your land and try to steal your resources," he added.
Small bit of knowledge for you. In the Islamic religion it is illegal to show/draw/make pictures of the prophet. He was seen as a holy man; a man of God and to draw pictures of him is to remove this trait from him.
