Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I feel emasculated even asking but I cant for the life of me get this fire going.
Im trying to burn some garden waste (dead wood, leaves, cuttings etc) but I cant for the life of me get it to stay lit.
Due to the situation I have to burn it in a barrel, for this task Ive gotten hold of a big old oil drum with the top cut out.
Heres what ive done so far
- Knocked plenty of holes in the bottom edge of the barrel for air flow (all the way around).
- Made a nest about 1/3 the way up from the bottom.
- Smaller dry bits line the bottom of this nest with the waste getting larger the higher you get.
- Used a whole box of matches trying to light the bottom layer and getting it to take!
Any tips from real men? It has to have gone by the weekend so will try anything.
