Well that was fun. Sorry, phantom, I'm keeping my hat. Also, my groin hurts now.

There are videos, but they're generally very small and difficult to see that it's actually me... there's a certificate too, maybe I'll find a way to scan it in or take a photo.

I also have a new sympathy for ragdolls. I recommend that anyone designing or developing physics in games go and do a bungee jump as you will gain a new appreciation for what the poor entities have to go through.

[Edit: Also, if anyone can tell me what the fuck this is, I'd be most grateful. I think it's extremely rude, but I'm not sure.]

You went bungie jumping with your silver hat??

Also, are you suggesting that the games industry should set-up a "Ragdoll Rehabilitation Unit" or "Ragdoll Advice Bureau" (where they can request clariffication that their engine is treating them within the limits of the Ragdoll Rights Act).

Jack: No, read the previous post. I went bungee jumping with my hair tied back in a rubber band; they wouldn't have let me take a hat.

Also, I'm not suggesting that ragdoll rights need legal enforcement; I believe that game developers are fundamentally good people who, if awakened to the true nature of the ragdoll plight, will be so overcome with sympathy that the problem will solve itself.

Gaheris: I thought as much, thank you [grin] Maybe I'll try typing it up and plugging it into babelfish sometime...

How long's your hair then?

I've never fancied bungee jumping myself, reminds me of the Fosters advert when the guy did it and got his head bitten off by an alligator.

It was attached to the harness on my back in three places, but the harness had straps going between the legs. Which dug in a bit when I changed direction...

That is a flash animation with lots of sexual references. ;)

Understatement.

[wow] Wow! I did the OSF bungee last year. Was it outside the ice rink again? As I recall, there was an awesome view of Oxford from the top.

Now you have to go skydiving...

Yup, it was the ice rink again. Very nice view.

I'm going to the skydiving simulator in a couple of weeks - the vertical wind tunnel - to see how I get on. Assuming no problems, I'll be trying to get into a skydiving thing sometime in the relatively near future.

There's a simulator? Where's that?

I tried to do the RAG skydive last year, but we couldn't jump due to poor weather conditions. I might have another go this year. I'll see how things go.

There's one up in Milton Keynes, at Xscape (the snowdome) and apparently there's another in Aylesbury.
