    Reference to "The Martian"?

    IIRC on Apollo 13, everything went wrong and exploded because the wires leading to the stirrer ended up exposed. So, when the astronauts activated the stirrers, a spark got generated and then everything was on fire. Then again I may be completely wrong about the exact details. Pretty sure it's an Apollo 13 reference.
  2. I assume you're not a native speaker, in which case, I must advise you: Lighten up on the caps. You need one at the beginning of a sentence, and one if you're referring to a specific named thing. Other than that, nowhere. Regarding your actual question, yes, that's actually highly annoying-even for me, when I played on Mac, the screen would always be shifted about a half-inch down because menu bars.

    HarvesteR Easter Egg

    Maybe a statue of a Kerbal with a hoe standing next to the abandoned parts on the Island Airfield. I also like the idea of a Christ the Redeemer-type thing over the space center. (Christ the Redeemer being that big statue thing in Rio de Janeiro.)

    Devnote Tuesday: Looking Back to the Future

    Anyone wanna bet that 1.1.3 will be followed three seconds later by 1.1.4? Not being pessimistic, though-I just like even numbers, they feel better

    My farewell to Kerbal Space Program

    Everything I'd say has already been said by others in this thread, and I'm no good at farewell speeches anyway. So... So long. And thanks for all the fish.

    SSTOs! Post your pictures here~

    Maybe try taking off by standing on the tail? Technically that's a VTOL, though the "L" might be a bit more difficult...
  7. Hmmm. I personally think Kerbinside would be better, as it would be much easier to launch vessels.
  8. Personally, I got a gaming PC for reasons unrelated to 1.1 (namely, because I wanted to play AAA games and that sort of thing.) I may drop $50 on two more sticks of RAM, though-my install is pushing 7.5GB memory use. Don't go with the Tomahawk. The only reason I got it was for the wifi, but the wifi card comes with no screws for installation and is generally a pain even if you can order the screws (though if you are still going with it, you'll need M2 x 3mm machine screws, three of them with wide heads).

    This cool game called Robocraft

    "Loot crates" isn't really a good description. They're free to open and all that-you get one at the end of a match depending on your performance; higher-ranking crates give better stuff, crates in higher-level battles give better stuff, crates from longer games give more stuff. There's no real pay2win or anything-it's actually a very fair business model. You buy premium (which basically doubles your earnings) and you can buy lots of crates (IIRC it's $4 for 25 max-level crates.) Used to be you only paid premium currency for cosmetics, but now you get cosmetics free in crates and there's no premium currency. It's much better than, say, WoT or that kind of thing. I'd recommend you watch Lathrix's let's play of the new system, actually.

    Mexican KSP Fans

    Um... I live near a Mexican mole cart in Portland, does that count? (By mole, I mean the chocolatey spice sauce, not the small rodent)
