Hello Everybody

I have not disappeared, but I have massive problems to connect to Paddleducks.
I can only connect via my cell phone having the Wifi disconnected. With any Wifi (at home, at the office, at friends, ...) I get the “Page can not be shown” error message.
I don’t why and I don’t know what to do about it. Can only hope  it fixes by itself.

The engine ran fine on compressed air last weekend and I am making the displacement lubricator now.
Pictures when I can connect from my PC again.

OK, just after having typed the above message on my cell phone I tried again and was able to open the page.
Since I don´t know if it just luck or if it will be permanent here two pictures of the finished engine.

I have to confess that I never liked the bracket Geoff uses on his engines to hold the cylinders together (I mentioned that I used Geoff's as an inspiration, for mine, well, I shamelessly copied it  :-[). When looking at a Krick Victor engine I found the solution: springs!
I had to cut a little recess in engine body to make place for the springs.
The rubber bands shall be replaced by springs once I find appropriate ones, but for the test run they worked fine.

I will upload the video of the test run in a moment.

Here the video of last weekend's test run.

Hey Jurgen,

Do me a favour - next time it plays up, do two things for me:

1) go and visit http://myip.mysau.com.au/ and copy the IP address it says you are currently on
2) also go to http://ping.pe/www.paddleducks.co.uk and let it run for a minute or two, then click the link towards the bottom of the page that says 'save as image' - watch that area, and it'll give you a URL just after it within 10 seconds or so. 

Copy and paste both of those things, and and shoot me an email at rendrag at rendrag.net and that should help me track down why you're not able to visit the site :)

Thanks!

Damien Jnr
