      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

  1. VIRB 360 and instrument data - it works!

    I've currently been playing about with a Virb 360 on land, not tried to connect it into any instruments as my boat doesn't have any apart from a digital compass due to class rules, but I do think that they have a great camera for sailors with the Virb 360 I will be using it on the water tomorrow for the first time, I've got the watch type remote control for starting an stopping/taking photo's and I will get a powered mount for it sometime but it will be the USB type and run it of a power bank due to no power on the boat. I did try shooting in 5.7k but it took ages to transfer and edit so have been testing in 4k which is a lot quicker
  2. Girl with patreon account goes sailing in hot place

    not Crocodile Dundee 3?? It's the one people always forget about.......mainly as it was a bit shit.....
  3. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Cheers for keeping the scores and us updated, I've got a few credits built up now so hopefully will be a bit more competitive this leg, just need to decide if I need winches or light wind sails......the last leg with just foils, radio, polish and code0 was a bit slow at times!!
  4. old meets new - low friction rings & spectra

    Quite a few eye's on that boat it seems, they have also done the lifelines in dyneema
  5. I thought you were a student, but it seems you have a job and are just trying to con us?? Try being honest in the future, it will get you further in life......
  6. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    A-Squared 5817th 6138.2 NM 20d 9h 45m 40s Fucked up this leg a bit, thought I saw something to the East in the doldrums, was about 1000th at that point, had to try something as has not been putting money into this anymore for the past few legs so loose on boatspeed with other boats that have paid for the goodies.
  7. Bunbury Return OR, Finistere Overturned?

    Wrong thread, wrong time, quit your shite, take it somewhere else.......
  8. Club/offshore racers in Aus up to $80k AUD

    Good on rating, not the nicest to sail, check the keel and the type of person who has owned it how it has been looked after/fixed, I know some people that wouldn't step aboard one and that was well before the one that lost the keel on the way back to the UK
  9. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Yep same here
  10. Sold everything to sail the world...boat sunk on day 2

    That's one way to get views..........
  11. Sold everything to sail the world...boat sunk on day 2

    Comments were there at one point, i'm guessing they disabled them.......
  12. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    I switched mine off, no need for that shit
  13. Toughpad FZ-G1

    Will use it as the nav computer that also has the ability to come on deck if/when needed, planning to connect to instruments via wifi as it seems most of the boats I sail on have that ability, if the boat instruments go down can still do basic nav, plus I plan to install some offroad/4WD maps for the holidays. Doubt I'll get much of a guarantee anyway being 2nd hand from eBay, I also know the implications/ability of only an IP65 rating
  14. Toughpad FZ-G1

    This was my problem, I had forgotten I had downloaded something like your link to see what the GPS was picking up, nothing was officially open but it was running in the background and not releasing the port, as soon as I disabled and deleted it everything worked as it should. Cheers for pointing me in this direction, it would have taken me a while to figure it out I think. I've had a demo of Expedition before and I do like it, don't know if i'll get another demo? but will try once the Adrena demo runs out. The company I got the pad from put the drivers for Windows 10 on Google drive, it is 900+mb though https://drive.google.com/file/d/13n4zOYjcRVP_4PRbug8tvEEIwrKI-fZR/view?usp=sharing
