Just a suggestion, but I think more research should be done into reportaling during the floating glitch. I've seen ExplodingCabbage try, and unless the speed gain was from strafing, I'm pretty sure it works. Although the specifics of it are unknown or, at the very least, not posted here. Go forth and test! Test! For science!

It works. Found out that a reportal will ALWAYS add exactly 200 ups, but when you get over 1000, after going through a portal, your speed is set to 1000. So with a reportal there you can get 1200.

I've found an interesting trick, called it wall strafe-jumping, it is basically bunnyhopping/strafejumping but without rotation, using a wall instead.
Here is how you can use it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xrOwHTX0MD0

Sadly this is already known and is usually referred to as wall strafing.  :)

No, it's not wallstrafing, and I do know about wallstrafing. With wallstrafing you have a limited speed (261 in P2), and using this trick you can gain much higher speeds, I got ~400 on sp_a3_03.
...
Also you can't do that jump with just wallstrafing, just try it.

Ha. Not the first time I've confused these two.

Already been discovered but it's never been announced in this thread.

You can find stuff about it here: http://sourceruns.org/index.php?topic=451.15

This a guide to a bunch of glitches I made on TWP a bit ago.  Probably isn't helpful, but...

I did this in someone's custom map - http://youtu.be/gSGwTnYYBDI
Don't know exactly which one it is, I'm assuming it's a Edge Glitch.
ABH removes the need for everything.
