  1. Could we send a Nokia 3310 to space?

    I was mainly referring to the Nokia 3310 (and its destructive capability). Do you really want that thing smashing up satellites? In all seriousness, if I wasn't clear enough on that last comment, I apologize. It was made in jest.
  2. Could we send a Nokia 3310 to space?

    oh god please no Why would you even want to eject it? We don't need five thousand more pieces of debris in LEO already.
  3. To respond to all of your points: 1. There will definitely be a fair share of waiting – I'm planning on building this computer around Thanksgiving or Christmas. If Coffee Lake drops during that time and it's not ridiculously more expensive than Kaby Lake, I can go for it. 2. I'll do some more research on this, and then decide whether Intel or AMD is best for me. 3. I run my laptop fan (MBP 13" 2017) at full blast when it's plugged in. Even through a wimpy pair of earbuds that came with my phone, I can barely hear it. Cooler noise doesn't really bother me that much.
  4. So having consulted one of my older classmates on what to buy, I've settled with Intel again and specced out the following $1.2k build. https://pcpartpicker.com/list/K4MFvV Again, any constructive criticism appreciated.
  5. [1.3] RealPlume - Stock [v1.0.0 - 14/9/2017]

    Congrats on the 1.0 release, @Nhawks17 and the rest of the RealPlume-Stock team! I've been following this mod for a long time, and I actually watch my launches now instead of sending KSP to the background.
  6. Revelations of the Kraken (Chapter 9: Pride)

    Short answer: magic, eldritch horrors, and lots of caffeine. I've done a test run (in Word 2013 for Mac, since that's my go-to for random things => PDF), and the forum text somehow gets converted into Roboto Mono of all things, while retaining the emoticons and images. Image (i.e., not emoticons) resolutions are pretty borked, though (based on a sample size of 1). Wheeeee.
  7. Revelations of the Kraken (Chapter 9: Pride)

    @CatastrophicFailure: If you need help with PDF/eReader/whatever-ifying the Kraken trilogy (and/or the Ussari Space Program/Alien Skies), hit me up. Really enjoying your writing/mission-reporting, and if I can help make it more accessible, I'd love to help out.
  8. -@TiktaalikDreaming You've been told off multiple times by multiple people. So I'm going to try to get the point across (again). First off, there are the aforementioned copyright issues. Nobody's going to risk getting taken to court just so you can have what you want. Besides, if you want it that badly, make it yourself. This is a great example: This was something I made with @0111narwhalz because we needed it for our writing and there was not enough demand for someone else to write it. So we wrote it ourselves instead of sitting on our hands and doing nothing. Might I mention I had next to no experience in C# when we started writing it?

    WOOT HE'S BACK PREPARE THE BUBBLYZINE- Er, sorry, I must've left my caps lock on. Edit:
  10. Making a Dollar or Two

    I could see how that could come in handy. All jest aside, it was a magnificent chapter. Words, sometimes, do tell more than pictures.
  11. Making a Dollar or Two

    Wow! That was a really well-written chapter. Really liked the details you crammed in. puts on No Time For Caution That just makes it even better.
  12. I just did another Google search – looks like that last source must've been outdated. Thanks for the tip. I'll consider it for the lower-end build.
  13. I get that KSP is CPU intensive and might do better with dual channel RAM, but it hurts upgradability. My old rig had 2x4GB DDR3-1866 and that had basically limited my upgrade path to another 2x4, for a total of 16 gigabytes. One of the sticks also seem to have a recurring problem, which will completely lock up my machine every once in a while. Regarding changing the 1060 3GB to AMD cards - this machine will also do Blender renders for me, and they have better support for CUDA (i.e., Nvidia cards).
  14. So, I'm thinking of getting a computer for Christmas, and the parentals support this as well. I don't exactly know what sort of budget they have in mind, so I hammered out two builds built on the Ryzen platform. Don't actually pay attention to the "total"; that's after mailing rebates which may or may not exist at Christmastime. The two builds aim for a price point of USD 1k and 750, respectively.

    Really like where this is headed, @Confused Scientist. Keep up the good work, and subbed. proceeds to go on repping spree
