Community & Events / Edinburg

Probably not, but is anyone studying at Edinburg and wouldn't mind having a cup of coffee or something and have a chat about the uni? I'm at the open day tpday, it's probably to late but if anyone's free it would be great. PM me if you're free?

General / Site swaps
« on: June 04, 2013, 06:03:16 PM »
Hey guys, so i have a maths project i have to do for IB (international baccalaureate) and i was wondering, i've heard that some tricks that are physically possible, aren't possible in terms of siteswaps. is this true?

im not certain im going to use it as a topic but i think it could be interesting if there is good maths behind it. but i dont really know much about siteswaps...
ideally, does anyone who is good at maths and understands siteswaps have any ideas for a maths investigations into siteswaps, it can be literally anything.
if this is totally ridiculous i will find something else to do.

thanks in advance

Gear / slippery string
« on: February 11, 2013, 05:37:09 PM »
i just got a roll of henry's orange recently (not my normal string), and it was great to start with. the other day, i was practicing and it was all good. and then i went away for maybe 5 minutes, i came back and its become really slippery. to the extent i cant keep a diabolo up in 2d hover start.

anybody had this before?
i am truly baffled, it's not wet or anything.

oh well. anyone got any ideas, i'd welcome them

General / Videos of the week
« on: November 11, 2012, 09:39:39 PM »
as many of you might have noticed, we havent seen a video a week around here for quite a while! when i first joined a few years back there was one every week, so i think we've all been slacking! i just got trapped on youtube for half an hour looking through old votw and thought i should bring the subject back up. could we all have a bit of a recall on how to submit votw's and whats not.
and can we all be creative and send something in for once! ;)

General / Collab 2011 The Real Thing!
« on: November 21, 2011, 09:52:14 PM »
To all fellow spinners, I will be taking care of this year's collaboration!

My aim is to try and include at least one video from each person who submits and I will do my best to only reject videos if the film quality or lighting is too bad.

To submit a video, upload it somewhere using something like Dropbox or Mediafire and then email a link to me at: collab2011 "at" Don't forget to include your name (or forum username if you'd prefer) and location.

I'd suggest people submit three videos or less, although feel free to send in several angles of the same trick.

I'll be taking submissions until Christmas day and i will try and have the video finished for the first of January. (If you post after Dec. 25th I may still be able to include your submissions but I can't ensure anything.)

I hope you guys have some great ideas. Be creative, be silly, have fun, and no matter how bad you think you are try and submit something!

Thank you all,

General / trick copy right
« on: January 08, 2011, 09:38:35 AM »
I'm sure there's probably a thread about this somewhere but i had a quick look and couldn't find one.
so i was wondering, what's the rule about using tricks that you've seen in someone's video in a performance, or video of your own?

thanks max
