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

Profile Information

  • Location Gulf Coast, 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. So what song is stuck in your head today?

    No... change that.... this just totally took over!!!! my brain is so weird!
  2. man.... I have to do this now... "Behold," Thompberry's sinister voice bellowed over the loudspeakers. "My latest creation, the Neo-Organic Robo-Mech!!! bwaahahahaha"
  3. What is your most facepalm-worthy moment regarding KSP?

    Well... a little over two years ago I thought to myself... hmmm... might be fun to try writing a mission report... hehehe
  4. I have no idea why... but I fear it might come out something like this... lmao
  5. Even more evidence they're part kerbal... they definitely have their priorities straight!
  6. What funny/interesting thing happened in your life today?

    Naaa, just take it out and buy it a drink...
  7. Good to see you back! And don't worry, you have time. I'm working on a sort of side project, and waiting on the next patch, so things are kind of in a holding pattern right his second.
  8. That's classified and NDA... hehehe No, seriously, It's not anything bad, but I promised to keep it to myself. And like everyone else, I can't do much more until the landing leg fix drops.
  9. What funny/interesting thing happened in your life today?

    Mockingbirds.... wow... If you haven't ever encountered one, they're the most insane little bird you will ever see. Not only can they mimic thousands of other birds,... they are utterly fearless, and will go after crows, hawks... even bald eagles!!! No kidding, I've seen them chase off after an eagle more than once... and the eagle back down! If dinosaurs evolved into birds, and I have no reason to question... then it was the meanest of the smaller raptors evolved into mockingbirds... So why bring them up??? Because yesterday a pair of mockingbirds started building a nest in a night-blooming jasmine bush, only 3-4 inches outside my bedroom window! And they've been at all day yesterday and today. Needless to say my cats are not amused. I don't want to try and take a picture... My windows are heavily mirrored because they're west facing, and they can't see in, but I really don't want to disturb them. It's been fascinating watching them bring one stick after another, and now it's starting to get a definite bowl shape... too cool!
  10. Not gonna lie, I firmly believe P&F really are Kerbals at heart!
  11. Switching Launch Sites

    There is a button in the game settings to turn it off and on... you need to start the career game, go to difficulty settings, and look for a button to turn extra launch site off and on. In sandbox games it's on by default, career games it's off by default.
  12. I agree with @HeronRocketry, I don't think it's really off-topic. Partially because of what he said, it's similar to the robots the crew just encountered a couple chapters ago. But more than that, you're suggesting an upgrade for Thompberry, and while I'm not saying what I have in store for him down the road... NDA... hehehe... he is an important character, so contemplating ways he could be upgraded is a legitimate topic, IMO. Yeah it is! I can't believe I didn't think of that!
  13. I'm out of likes, but I love this! It may sound a little weird, but it really remind me of a weird alien bug thing from a 1967 Hammer film called "Five Million Miles To Earth". FYI.... super campy, and on my top-5 favorite Hammer Studio movies! And it's on-topic, because it's also one of those movies I grew up with, and there are lots of little bits of it in Emiko... along with thousands of others...
  14. So what song is stuck in your head today?

    I'm out of likes, but yes... I love it!!! Reminds me a lot of this
