Sort of OT but a question of the Group
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

Post subject: Sort of OT but a question of the Group

Hey all

I am developing an idea which might be of interest if I am given the 'go ahead'.

Would there be interest if an occassional live streaming video was available to observe work on a certain historic tank??

I'm toying with the idea, sound interesting??

Let me know
Don

I'd be interested in looking at it. Would be fun to watch the progress.

Some folks may need to invest in waterproof keyboards if you do.

They will be drooling over them as they watch the video!!!! Wink

Not to rain on the parade but,....

the typical work session tends to be rather non-eventful. You know,... loosening bolts, the never ending searches for the proper tool which eludes discovery, only to be found in ones back pocket.... Rolling Eyes

However, there are still a number of tasks which will foster interest.

Track removal & suspension removal are the next step, along with the removal of the remaining debris in the hull floor is the focus for the 'New Year'.

Cool

Don,

The possibility of certain topic-relevant video links has come up in the Moderator's Forum and it was advanced by an administrator of the site. Please PM me your idea and I'll float it there and see what the folks upstairs think. I'd also like to know what members at large think, but suspect that the response would be overwhelmingly positive.

This is very timely, please elaborate (in private, if you prefer, and I'll forward).

D.

Like watching someone build a house, there are only a few steps that look impressive. The rest is tedious and too detailed to hold most people's interest.

Actually it might be more interesting doing a live re-assembly. You would have everything set up and ready to go.

A good idea, thanks for the input.

But then again since when has anyone here thought we were Most People

Yea a lot of it is ho-hum boring but I bet there would be ho hum sections that someone would look at and see something that raises a question that starts a discussion that gets a lfe of it's own. A combination of camera on a tripod capturing everything live gathering raw material to be edited down later (maybe fed live to a web feed) and handheld mobiles concentrating on 'interesting' stuff

On the show 'Tool Time' they solved the bordom problem by having a sexy assistant. Don, would it be OK with you to have a skantily-clad assistant?

Wow

Thats a bit more than a laptop fed webcam idea that I had in mind, but it would be cool if the means & the manpower were possible.

I'm sure that at least one hadheld video is possible as well as still photos for 'rehash editing' of discoveries and specific details.

But as I had mentioned, this is all merely a 'gee whiz' idea, that must get 'higher' approval first. I'll work on that over the weekend.

Additional ideas and possible 'tips' will still be appreciated.

Who knows,.....maybe this might work. Wink

Regard
Don
