        @muffintop I've been playing with the raspberry pi 2b and Arduino Uno and mega for a while, and I've been trying to learn programming on both. I'm looking to build a hexapod some day but I don't have the money for all the servos as of right now. I'd like to scale up the hexapod some day, when I'm old and can afford hydraulic rams and pneumatic cylinders, big enough to ride on.

        nope!!! microwave agitates water molecules only, allowing them to vaporize and escape, toaster iducts heat to the ourside of the whole piece, which will cause cracking and take way longer,, for fresh greens, nuke low and slow, with many breaks to allow water to escape through cooling... some guys like to toast afterward, to finish it off and achieve color. but generally, I stick to the nuke

      This might help you, it helped me. Don't twist or tweak when shooting upright but rather flip hard forward (called a "flip"). If you like when upright just twist 90 degrees. If shooting gangsta lengthen your draw so the bands will naturally "speed bump" higher to clear the forks.

        Lastly, when shooting gangsta cant the forks forward but not too much or you will hit your knuckles, this allows the bands to have space between the face of the fork and where the ammo should speed bump over allowing you to have a "free lane". Overall basically flip hard, turn and/or tweak, or cant your forks forward.
