  1. It seems like the entire reason for this capsule is to avoid flying on American vehicles. Somehow I doubt that that will be a strong motivator.
  2. @JoeSchmuckatelli These were some of my favorite videos! Like an Irish version of Bob Ross, with "happy little planets" instead of "happy little trees". There's a lot more on his channel worth watching; both the new and old stuff is good. Enjoy! The second vid should have more resonance stuff.
  3. Ummm.... no. Even if the real world acted like KSP, where you can drag and drop components and they magically click together, and you can just add some struts to hold everything together, this wouldn't work. But the real world is waaaaay more complicated. The idea presented sounds a lot like something my six-year-old nephew came up with and showed me yesterday. Just sayin'...
  4. I get back after, like, three months away from this forum and this is what I see. Now I know why I love this place!
  5. I did a calligraphy birthday card for my father yesterday, and I laid out the margins in inches, but ruled the guidelines in metric. *shrugs* I do know a place where feet will never go out of use. It's pipe organs. Ranks of pipes have their pitches measured in feet. I can't imagine a 2.4384 m Gedackt, but I use an 8' Gedackt all the time.
  6. ^ Oh, good. I was coming here to ask if we'd gotten any news on the incident. Now I know... Thanks!
  7. I agree. I personally love flat UI designs. I dislike extreme minimalism. There shouldn't be tons of empty space. Colors and highlights should all fall within the same palette. This UI we're seeing from the devs checks all my boxes.
  8. Ehhh... Maybe a teeny tiny bit. But what they'd really notice would be the early warning radars. Clear AFB, Thule, and Olenegorsk would look like beacons compared to wimpy TV signals.
  9. There were no clouds of fighters guarding the F-117. It flew solo strike missions into the heaviest air defense umbrellas. In many cases, other strike packages would be present in the same general area, coming in from different directions. Maybe that confused you?
  10. There's a reason, though, that the F-117 did like 80% of strike missions. Stealth is just that hard to beat.
  11. It sounds like Tom Clancy to me. I'd read that book!
