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.

    Nice, we have someone to push jet. Mine are all in sets of no more than 12 these days.

    Anyway.

    13689 + 105 = 13794, and that was getting over a minor bout of food poisoning.

    Do them on the rings - seriously hard. I learned how to do them from a lifelong friend who was a national level gymnast. Those guys do stuff like that as a matter of course. Of course, he has 3 feet of shoulder and has been yoked since he was about 10 years old. It does stunt your growth a bit though. He is only 5'9", and his dad is considerably taller.

    Rings are easier than the bar but the problem is I do them on the cable pulley frame not a dedicated pull up bar so I have to jump up and the tubing is a rectangular solid so it makes it difficult to transition your hands as you're going up but I manage.

    Funny thing is I've been doing them for a few months and people always look on in awe but never say anything. Then in the past two weeks I had a total of 4 people ask me about them, quite odd.

    Looking forward to doing them tonight since I took wednesday off and went to hollywood last night.
