Welcome to the Water Rocket Forum, sponsored by The Water Rocket Achievement World Record Association.

The largest, most sophisticated and ground breaking group supporting you, the serious water rocket flyer! Whether you are a beginner or an expert, the WRA2 has something for everyone.

A water rocket is a type of model rocket using water as its reaction mass. The pressure vessel (the engine of the rocket) is constructed from thin plastic or other non metallic materials (usually a used plastic soft drink bottle) weighing 1,500 grams or less. The water is forced out by compressed air. It is an example of Newton's third law of motion.

also with irc you can log the discussions and then copy and paste it ....

I am currently installing the code for the chatbox you requested. Hopefully if all goes will it will be operational in the next 24 hours. I am not sure how much this will get used as our members are from all different time zones and the login records indicate that they log in spread out over the entire day with never more then a few on at any one time. Since multiple users did request it though we will install it.

Thanks for that. I think we've been enjoying the impromptu chats.

It's hardly a priority, but I've discovered that the shoutbox doesn't allow me to post using the opera mini browser on my mobile (cell). That's surprising as the rest of the forum works fine using it - it must be the ajaxy bit that it barfs on.

Anyway, thanks for the extra service, much appreciated!

PS @andi: that's why it seems like I'm rudely ignoring you!


Cheers
