I wonder why some people are having trouble seeing the pic? I can see it of course, and for whatever reason Towncarman couldn't see it at first....Perhaps I shouldn't be using Imageshack? Any thoughts there? :hysterical: :thumbsup: And Kudos to Ross! he guessed right without even seeing. :thumbsup: :P I know them as "horse" hoof knives, but the same are used for all hooved livestock.Looks like we need "someone" to find a true stumper. :D treestumpks6.gifRoss?

I'm a city gal so really had no idea that you'd use knives to trim cow and horse hoofs. I just thought they'd wear down from walking. So how often does a cow or a horse need this done?

(Of the movement- not the video- I shot the video 10 minutes ago. B))Please be aware that this is the only source that I am aware of for this particular movement. I will be looking for a specific answer!Good luck!:w00t:Adam

It is the movement that the wipers make on your '68 VW Beetle.Or it would be if they still worked.........Don't know a thing about cattle, but horse feet need trimmed every six to eight weeks, roughly, depending on their job and work load. Is usually done at the time that the metal shoes are reset, if the horse is shod. Barefeet still get trimmed just to keep things healthy and balanced. The knives trim out the inside portion of the bottom, and the triangular shaped "frog" that grows in the back portion of the bottom and in towards the center.The very outside of the hoof is the horses equivalant to our finger nails, and that part is thick and hard, (if the horse is healthy) and that part is trimmed with a pair of "nippers" that kinda look like a wirecutter with a flattened head. Once that is trimmed back, the knives are used to even up the rest of the center of the bottom. You want the bottom of the foot, either shod or not to have a smooth concavativity to it that gives some flex to the hoof and allows "stuff" that wants to collect there to fall out as the horse moves. Farriers and people that trim horse feet earn their money!!You can do a lot to fix (or hide) a bad gait, or a foot that turns the wrong way as the horse moves down the lane with a proper "trimming."trimmingwr9.gif

Nope! (for your guess)My dad has the feet of all the cattle trimmed once a year. He had the guy come out twice a year and do about half the herd, and any urgent cases.Adam

Thanks for the info on animal hooves.hmmm, a dance class for remedial tap dancing?or if you were playing the piano, maybe the way your foot moves between the foot pedals?Is this movement for a foot or something else?

Aside for the fact that I was holding the camera to shoot the video, the movement is as filmed. Dance is kinda on the right track. Keep in mind this is gonna be pretty obscure...... :w00t:Adam

Talk about obscure!!I know what you are doing! It is called "The Teaberry Shuffle"(from the sixties TV commercials, the jingle for Teaberry Gum had a dance that went with it. I don't think we can embed even short videos into the forum, so here is a link to a bunch of old TV adds and jingos. Teaberry Gum's Teaberry Shuffle is on the right, eight down. Very short video. Dates you pretty seriously if it brings back memories: :hmm: Teaberry ShuffleThere are three pages of old adds here, help pass away the workday.... :thumbsup: )Let's see you get THAT tune out of your head! :thumbsup: :w00t:

His heel isn't moving only the toe so I'm thinking maybe it has to do with pressing pedals. It wouldn't be a car because the whole foot moves. I don't think playing an organ either because the whole foot moves. I'm not sure about piano pedals. Does the whole foot move or just the toe? Or even weaving where you use the old time wooden contraption. I usually watch what the weaver is doing with his hands and arms and don't pay much attention to his feet.

Specmon is the closest, in that it is some type of dance move. But the move doesn't really exist yet.I guess this will give you a bit of a clue. You need to be more geeky! :w00t:Adam

You want geeky, we'll give you geeky:You're doing The Hard Drive Dance: your interpretation of the read heads swinging out over the platters and back.Or better! You are moving with the rhythm of the carriage of your inkjet printer as it prints out this weeks $50 bills. :'( :w00t:

I'm not sure if it's fair to play when one doesn't know the answer to one's "and just what, exactly, is that?" question. I came across this wire on my desk. I'm sure it came with something, but I can't figure out what.The picture is of a long wire with an earphone plug on one end and an LED on the other. It does absolutely nothing if I plug it into the earphone jack on my PC or MP3 player. It lights up the LED if I partially insert it into the MIC jack of the PC, but not if inserted fully.More info. On the back of the LED is some sticky tape, as if the LED was meant to be mounted on something. Only a small, spherical LED in that Plicky's head shaped end lights up. LED on a wire

Maybe it's intended purpose is to test an RCA female connector to see if it is good. If the LED lights up, the slot is ok. If it doesn't light, the slot is dead.

It's likely an infrared transmitter, used to send remote control commands from one device (like a satellite receiver) to another device, such as a VCR. Why it is visible, I have no idea.

Ah, so. I believe you got it. Last summer I bought a media center PC from Dell. It came with the Microsoft remote control. But I didn't want the Win Media Center OS and within a month had replaced it with an OEM version of XP and a 3rd party DVR software. The DVR software came with its own remote so I shelved the MS remote. I dug up the Microsoft remote sensor and sure enough, the back of the sensor has a jack for a earphone sized plug. I'm now sure that the LED+Wire are so that you can extend the sensor's line of sight to the remote.The new remote is radio controlled so I didn't need a similar thing. Since I didn't use the Microsoft remote long, I just forgot its parts.Edit: found a link to the product on Newegg. the wire is in the upper right corner fo the product picture. Newegg ad showing the wire. Edited by littlebone

Should have watched it before Google joined the BBC in having 'it's own player' for the AV stuff on their site.How many individualized players do we need now? One for EVERY SITE WE VISIT WITH AV STUFF ON IT??! Sheesh!The only saving grace is Google's is available for more than just Windows. But come on Google!

for playing directly yeah, but when you download it, which is what I was trying to do, cuz I was on dialup at the time, it wants you to download their google video player.I hadn't allowed the page to fully load so I didn't realize that it was still using the flash player to 'play' them. Whew! Glad to hear that.I guess they are giving folks an option of downloading their flash based player to play them locally for those who don't know to just drop them on your browser window LOL!Thanks Adam!
