FFotW - Archery: Fast shooting

Archery: Fast shooting
Ever wondered how a real life Legolas would shoot his bow? Ok its no Legolas but a russian girl but if you ever stood on a shooting range with your bow and tried to empty your quiver as fast as possible you know how difficult this is and can only watch the following video in awe. Hope you enjoy it.

Man the trenches - Next wave of spambots attacking

Man the trenches
Oh how I missed this... In the last few days there was a real flood of spam comments on my blog. All in the same manner like "Great blog visit my" or "Wow never read stuff like this, read my article". This time no visits spamming (at least if I can trust my statistics here) but a big mess in my incoming mails folder. Luckily this sh** is not getting published because in around 90% these comments are recognized as spam and filtered out by Blogger.
Anyone else having these problems lately?

But to post something relevant for the blog: I am sorting out the pictures for my pending battle report and have to force myself to watch the whole painting DVD stuff again because I have nearly forgotten everything I wanted to write about them. Perhaps I will go shopping in the near future because the DVD from Painting Buddha will be out soon and they seem to be worth buying.

So please stay tuned until I have recovered and can post some more interesting stuff for wargaming in the near future :)

So long,

Wear a helmet!

Always wear a helmet - and be it a steampunk version!
On behalf of my own experience last week I can only say: Always wear a helmet when driving a motorcycle or a bike. I often see young guys driving their small Vespas and the like without a helmet (or having it dangling at the handlebars). I can't understand this and I even think of buying me one for biking if I will do it more often. The accident last week (re)opened my eyes what can happen even at a small pace.

A fitting psychedelic government campaign from the 80s. Pretty funny I think:

And yes, I am on the road of recovery so I will start writing again.

Life is not fair

Just wanted to give a short life sign here and a very short explanation why it could (but hopefully will not) be a bit more quiet in the next few days. Sadly I had an accident while driving a quad yesterday and crashed the quad of my friend in the process. Luckily we only got slight bruises and myself a broken toe. Could have been worse most of the damage done isn't at living beings. So the next days I think I will have enough to do with managing the whole process (be it with police or insurance) and help my friend where I can.
And if this wouldn't be enough I have to prepare a speech which I should hold on Tuesday (and hopefully can) about accessibility for the visual impaired of web applications. At the moment the preparation does not go well because of the painkillers I take.
Cross your fingers that everything will turn out well and stay tuned.

MMM - To the Apocalypse in Daddy's sidecar

If I ever get a daughter I want her to say exactly this! Cloe (Captain Roberts daughter) did this. Pretty cool don't you think?
If you like Steampunk like I do and don't know Abney Park you definitely have missed something. Shu go watch them!

In general watch them, I think you won't regret it. Have a good start into your week!

Battle Report - Dark Elves vs Empire: Battle One

I fear something isn't right here - Battlereport Dark Elves vs. Empire
I smell a battle coming
Lord Xanthus looked at his small warband and grinned: The small human village would bring him enough slaves to refill the flock in his mines. The only thing between him and his slaves were those pesky human soldiers who readied there weapons. He could also see some knights and even those blackpowder warmaschines he hated so much. Nonetheless he needed those slaves. Silent he gestured his Knights to trod aside his unit of crossbowmen. With the spearman and his shades blocking the right flank he didn't worry too much about the knights and artillery there, he just had to get grip of this human who chanted some blessings and prayers to this fool god the humans worship. As he felt the muscle tension of his Cold One he grinned and with a relieving: ATTAAAAAAACK! he sent his forces to slaughter.

FFotW - No life on Mars

... but 70 seconds of stunning timelaps action: 9 months of Curiosity Rover work on MArs in 70 seconds. Really cool but sadly no aliens to see :D

Enjoy and I will be going back to posting in the next days when working days aren't as stressful as the last few days.
