  1. I couldn't stand it anymore. In addition to the stifling heat under a mask, it was scratchy when I tried to sleep, started getting in the way when I ate, and then began tickling my nose. Was a real battle to remove, though. I don't say "shave" because it was more like eroding the thing away laboriously over the course of about 40 minutes. 

  2. One of my favorite builds, from way back when. 


    Was a bear to assemble, to such an extent that I haven't tried to re-do it, though I've often wanted to. What you can't see from this pic (which is why I chose it) is that the far corner there doesn't actually line up. This is just as close as I could get it to working. 

  3. The good news is, this is considered the hardest part of the game by most people, so if you do figure it out, the worst will be behind you. 

    If you're getting that close, you should be able to set the navball to target mode, then burn retrograde until you're at rest with respect to the target. Orbital mechanics will still mess with you a bit, but you should be able to fly more or less directly toward it and finalize the dock.
