Well done shalafi - what was the "knack" to it for you? Nice shot, John. What's your next target? Swing In?

Today I landed a personal target of mine, 10 "around tricks" all continuously joined togeteher
It goes:
Big cup > little cup > base cup > big cup > spike > little cup > big cup > spike > base cup > spike > base cup > little cup > spike > little cup > big cup > base cup > spike > little cup > spike > big cup > spike > base cup > spike > frying pan > spike > little cup > spike > big cup > spike > base cup > spike > big cup > little cup > big cup > base cup > big cup > penguin base cup > big cup > spike > earth turn > big cup > spike > earth turn > little cup > spike > earth turn > base cup > spike > earth turn

Also known as:
Around the block > around the village > around Japan > around the prefecture > around Britain > around the world > around Europe > around the cosmos > the 1st section of around turnbridge wells > around the U.S.U

it took me 3 days and I call it "around the islands"

Well done Rob.
I've got a feeling that there was some combo similar to that one that was referred to as "Around The Arounds", but I can't remember what, and a brief search doesn't turn it up.
If you don't want to BUY MY BOOKS 😉, then why not ask your local library to order them in, and read them for free? That would help too. Cheers!

I have seen lots of US pros do combos like this as well but normally it's only like:
Around Japan > around the world > around Europe > around the USA
But that combo is only 22 clicks, not 49[1]
 1. And not 57 clicks either (around turnbridge wells)

Well done Dimensions.

Today I did some forum database optimising after we had a little mySQL crash. Oh, the joys of webmastery....

Yes i think swing in will be another work in progress for me. I did land a few yesterday though, albeit not very gracefully lol

Today I had no time to click, as I was (triumphantly) debugging a different web site that had had me tearing my hair out. Also, I got to play with my new video light, which I will probably end up using to brighten the dark corners of the house where I click in the winter. It's all about the light!

Ah, now that's a beauty. That walnut looks great.

The tama also seems to have quite a texture to it - is that the wood grain showing through the paint?

Kinda looks like a lemon (the fruit, not a dud!).
