    Technical difficulties. Not good with tech/software/etc. Gonna see if I can email someone the pictures and videos so they can post them. Apologies for the delays. Keeps saying the files are too large for the server.

    If you use a Windows pc, you should be able to edit the pictures in Paint. Open the pictures in paint, and then click on resize. Resize by pixel. Set the maximum pixel dimension to 1200 and it will automatically scale the other dimension. Then the pictures will upload no problem. The BladeForums server has trouble with resizing larger pixel sizes, but I have never had trouble with a 1200 pixel image.

    Also, if you upload the images to your personal image gallery, then you can easily plop them into any relevant post using the Media Gallery Embed button like so:

    The picture system isn't the easiest, but ever since the upgrade you have a lot more options as a Gold Member.

    Great pics! Would love to see the videos. Maybe Nathan would be interested in posting them on his YouTube account.
    On the one hand, I can't wait for this preorder. On the other hand, I need more time to save. Solace is found when I remember I'm already on the BC preorder. But the MC... I need a MC!

    I am going to make little devise to hold my iPod today so I can stick it in the ground and film wherever. Thinking some of the bamboo here and a rubber medical tourniquet band or large rubber band. I'll figure it out.
    I'll do some side by side LC, MC, HDFK comparisons if I have time. Could also do some pitchwood/sapwood/fatwood processing, bamboo chopping, or seasoned wood chopping.
    Thanks A LOT @91bravo for posting all these! I gotta figure it out one of these days!

    Anybody feeling frisky and want to compare MC vs. LC scales for me? I'm thinking of picking up another pair of OD MC scales in case I reacquire another LC in the future;). They fit the BC without too much trouble :).

    Yeah, I did that today. I compared the MC, LC, and HDFK. For some reason I am having trouble sending them in email form to bravo. Still trying to work it out. Maybe I'll set up a youtube account and go that route
    Scratch that! I read that too quickly, thought you were asking for a comparison video of chopping.

    If you want a Kydex sheath, contact Eric at MashedCat who has received 91Bravo's MC. If you'd like leather work more, contact @grogimus who is in possession of my MC.
