Failure to Launch



Well, as you can see I built the pedal. Unfortunately it doesn't work.  I don't know what I'm going to do with it yet, I might scrap the entire inside and try a different design.

Tonight I'm going to see the Crew vs Newcastle so I'm really excited for that, and my seats are awesome.

EDIT: An interesting fact, several of the players on Newcastle were denied Visas to come to the US for various reasons.

Going back outside to work on my pedal again,

  3. @Mark, hopefully its a nice clean game and there aren't any riots at the end. That reminds me, and I'll add it to the main post, a lot of newcastle players were denied Visa's to the US for various reasons lol.

  7. To be honest, the US authorities have probably made the right move by not letting Joey Barton loose in their country.

  13. I hate it when stuff doesn't work the first time, then it takes twice as long to go back and troubleshoot everything. Good luck if you decide to try and fix it.

  14. Hopefully you might be able to salvage it for something else.

  15. I don't know if this will be a double poster not, I got a 404 error when I clicked "Post Comment" before.

    But yeah, I can personally attest to the stupidity of the United States visa process. My fiancée and I have been having a really rough time being able to get her and the kids to be able to visit the States. It's been about four years now....
