Clicks & other oddities

On the subject of clicks, how exactly is =/ produced?  The closest I can
come to a click-type noise is a sort of flap of the tongue striking the
bottom of the mouth.  I can also do a sort of ingressive uvular flap which
sounds quite click-like and which I'm kind of thinking of adding to the
phonology of this click language I seem to be beginning.

Oh, and I worked out what that weird vowel in Kazakh that I alluded to a
while back is.  It's an ejective /U/.  How weird is that?  ANADIEW!!!!
