    I'm not out to conquer the galaxy.... I swear...

Profile Information

  • Location Central Florida
  • Interests I remember when I was a kid I watched the first moon landing on my grandparents big TV, along with my grandpa, who was equally fascinated.
    And I've watched each and every satellite, probe, and rover to go into the solar system since.
    That's why I'm so hooked on this game.... it's like I get to do it all over again, and this time I'm in command... cool!
    I read a lot... probably too much, if that is possible. My favorite authors are Frank Herbert and H.P. Lovecraft.
    I also love studying history... and obviously I'm a huge science fact and fiction fanatic.

  1. Awesome... again! Good to see you back in action! But that rift... that's reminding me a little too much of the crack in Amy's wall.... (Not so obscure Dr. Who reference)
  2. OK, I just looked that one up, and wow!!! Are they serious? I mean, I'm impressed, but I also realize more than most just how much work they're talking about! I tip my hat to anyone that's able to complete it.
  3. Yes, when you access kerbnet you'll open a little map window. An anomaly will show up as a little question mark on that map. You have to turn and catch them in the light just right... it's more of a very dark green tint than actual green.
  4. I told you before... we cannot confirm or deny anything about a green monolith suddenly appearing out of nowhere on the Moon!!!
  5. OK, this weekend has been great, and I've gotten so much done!!! Most important, I've learned how to do something new, which is always a really good thing. So I promised to get back to finishing the story of Emiko's adventure on Earth... and I will, I promise. But you know me, I can't just sit her down and have her start talking... Oh no... I think this requires something new...
  6. Oh yeah, I'll get video... and it to keep this sort of on-topic, I'll post it on this thread first if that day ever comes....
  7. I will SO do that!!!
  8. Hehe... I grew up in upstate New York, where 24" of snow overnight is just considered a halfway decent storm.... Now I live in Florida, and I've heard it only snowed once here in the last 20 odd years... and a few measly snowflakes locked up the whole town! Man, I wish I had been here to see it, or get to see it again someday... I know this is bad to say... but it would be hilarious to watch!
  9. Ahhh yes, that's right!!! Pardon this old memory...
  10. I should probably also mention "The Butlerian Jihad" is supposed to take place around 13,352 AD... if I did the math right.
  11. Awesome finds, everyone! Hey, don't forget I started a thread to suggest other weekly challenges, if anyone else has an idea for a future one.
  12. Opps.... my bad! I looked thru... not sure how I missed it!
  13. @ZooNamedGames... Well said, nice! I think most everyone here has heard already my story, so I won't get into much detail this time. But in a nutshell, I'm on disability, my back is all screwed up, and even though I'd love to try and find a nice, safe desk job somewhere, several doctors and a judge have permanently benched me, like it or not. This all happened about 8 years ago now... and honestly, the first few years sucked! I tried to find stuff to do, but most of the time I found myself sitting home, bored out of my skull, and making everyone around me crazy. Then this goofy KSP game comes along... and wow... it's not so goofy at all... in fact, it really IS rocket science... and astronomy... and little green astronauts... and building massive space stations.... and everything I really love! Finally, I had something I could get really lost in, and tax my brain to it's max... and best yet... it never really ends!!! On top of that, about a year after I joined this forum I started writing Emiko Station... having no clue what I was really doing... and to my amazement, I find I really like to write! It's really fun, and people are really seeming to like it... and now I have a second thing to keep me busy, and my brain really active, even if I am stuck at home. This game, and this forum, means so much to me... and has really done so much FOR me.... I don't think I really could ever thank @SQUAD properly in just one lifetime.
