1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    I use a Dupont, but I can't imagine it's that different. Isn't there a cover for a refill port? Just unscrew/lift it off to expose the refill port and fill it with a high quality butane refiller. If you care enough, you can probably warm up the butane can in your hand and have your lighter in the freezer for a few minutes prior to this. Some people say this helps, I don't think it makes a difference.

    Got it. It was actually much simpler than I thought. There is a port on the base, and you don't have to unscrew or open anything. It's misleading because the port doesn't look like a port; it looks more like a screw.

    Cool, enjoy your high end lighter. Just remember not to light candles with them. Wax vapor has potential to clog it over time.

    I had heard that either DuPont or Dunhill lighters use "sound engineering" to make an extremely pleasant *clink* noise when lit. Is that true?

    Some S.T.Duponts are engineered to make a ping sound when you open the lid.

    Dupont Gatsby and Ligne 2 ping. I have a Ligne 2, it sounds exactly like this video:


    I know, I'm lame for even checking if they have a YouTube video about a lighter.

    You're lame?

    I just spent 10 min watching about 20 lighter videos that spidered off your link.

    I hate when I get stuck in a YouTube loop. [​IMG]
