    Resigned Permanently as of December 14 '15
  1. Flymetothemun has left the building

    Hello everybody, I had a huge essay written, but I deleted it in favor of a short, simple, to the point post. I'm resigning as of this thread. The KSP community has nothing left for me and I just randomly click links trying to find something on here that I have even a blink of interest in. I don't play KSP anymore, either. I'm also trying to cut down on my use of electronics and this forum isn't helping any. I'm moving onto greener pastures, as the saying goes. I will be reading, but not replying to any comments left on this thread. Merry Christmas to you all. Goodbye, Farewell, and Amen. ~Flymetothemun, signing off for the last time.
  2. Paris agreement

    Once the mods come through here this thread'll be locked up tighter than Fort Knox.
  3. ARMY-NAVY Game

    It's because the Navy has something the Army doesn't. Specifically this: Don't believe me? The Steelers have a song like this too, and they've won at least 5 super bowls and are, in my opinion, the best team in the NFL:
  4. Paris agreement

    Nuclear. Renewable energy in its' current state requires a lot of heavy metals (particularly with solar) and is too inefficient. But if you wanna put up a couple turbines or some panels for yourself and you're willing to pay for them go ahead. As for the climate change debate, I think it IS changing, but we can't do anything about it. I think it's just a cycle of warming and cooling. We affect the planet in all kinds of ways, but in this way I think we're just along for the ride. In the words of George Carlin: "The planet is fine, the people are f---ed!" And I think that some sources of data might also be edited by those with agendas to push and government bribes to be had rather than science to do. And you have certain hypocrites who push this agenda while they take private jets everywhere and have multiple homes.As you can see I don't trust the evil, lying, thieving organization known as the UN and the US Government. Nor do I trust ANY Government, nor do I trust the corporations or the mainstream media. *applause*
  5. Computer randomly shuts down

    As somebody who has a mild interest in electronics, how can somebody be that stupid? Exploding power supplies? Malfunctions because of efficiency? Talk about stupid. That's getting dangerously close to politician stupid. Whoever wrote the answer Gerula quoted must be denser than depleted uranium.
  6. Like Metal? Like covers?

    I like metal. Iron's my favorite, but carbon steel's a close second. And I like covers. Fedoras, bowlers, pith helmets, I like most all covers. This wasn't satisfying. All jokes aside, I like MJ, but I think this wasn't a good interpretation of him. The rhythm line always plays a big part in MJ's music but if you're having a seizure on the drum kit it becomes like TV static, it means nothing. Also, the vocals are always very finely tuned and sung, and I think singing like you're a primate with a mental disorder doesn't help with the intended goal. I won't go on, but mind this: I HATE, HATE, HATE metal music with the passion of one million fiery suns.
  7. What do you think of the new forums?

    I've avoided Facebook for privacy reasons all this time. Little did I know I'd be caught in an amateurish, 4th-grade programming project-esque copy of it. Squad wasted their money. Every day this forum software is active I inch ever closer to the point where I put in my resignation. It's already written, all I need to do is pull the proverbial trigger.
  8. Satellite P300 Thermal Solution

    My machine doesn't have backlit keys. Although I'll have to see what the new keyboard does; the old one finally gave up the ghost after 5 years and a new one's on order; I'm just using an old USB keyboard I had laying around, although if my machine doesn't have backlit then it probably doesn't have the capability in the ribbon connector for backlit. I dunno. And I am certain that it is the fan getting clogged; it was overheating just a couple weeks ago and I opened it up, opened up the fan, and there was a 1/4 inch carpet of built-up dust blocking the air from going through the radiator and over the heat pipe. I usually have to clean the thing out once every 6 months, but every time I do it runs as cool as it ran when it was new.
  9. Probably not too many; it sounds like it's tooled to run astronomical calculations and not play video games. But, then again, this is NASA, they aren't funded to play stupid video games, they're funded to research and increase understanding and awareness of astronomy and space in general.
  10. USS Zumwalt DDG-1000 Out For Sea Trials

    I'd think that the idea behind a destroyer is to destroy the threat before it can hit you.
  11. Community Support

    I've helped a fellow forum user with some issues that i'm not at liberty to talk about and he's helped me whenever I was depressed. Eventually the depression stopped of it's own accord but it helped so much to have somebody to talk to. I'm not sure of his current state, but I can at least attest to how much this forum's helped. I disagree with a lot of things on this forum, including but not limited to the developers and the moderators, but it's helped me and that's one of the reasons why I stay.
  12. USS Zumwalt DDG-1000 Out For Sea Trials

    Hopefully some museum will buy her or they'll turn her into a museum. 4.4bil is too much for 40 years in my opinion. And if they can keep the USS Constitution afloat for 200 years they can surely keep this new ship afloat for a little while.

  15. USS Zumwalt DDG-1000 Out For Sea Trials

    She looks less like a ship and more like a snowcap. But since the thing cost 4.4 billion it better last a long time.
