  1. The Probe!

  2. [Philosophy] What are you, and where?

    The opening post description of twitching frog legs immediately made me think of how they inspired Mary Shelley's Frankenstein and some of the questions it asked about the nature of life. But more importantly though, who in hell puts frog legs on pizza!
  3. Early access games are they worth it?

    I've become skeptical of the direction I'm seeing in early access gaming. If companies were charging 5 to 10 dollars for these things it would be fine, but $20 for a buggy game missing many features is way too much. I've played KSP from 0.12 and it was the best game I ever bought, but most of the time it won't be like that. I would recommend staying away from any early access game selling for more than $15 and then only if it looks close to beta.
  4. I've made a lasers puzzle game: Luminoso

    This kind of reminds me of some of those ladder logic simulators for industrial PLC.

    Ouch, well so much for saving the engines.
  6. [Spaceflight] Russia on the Moon by 2029

    Just my personal opinion, but that's actually a lot of new flight hardware in just 14 years. We do have better and cheaper technology than 46 years ago, but that's still a lot to do. Just getting the prototypes ready for their first flights by then might be doable?
  7. How to remove SalesMagnet (Adware for Google Chrome)

    I have AdwCleaner booked marked but never got around to trying it. Maybe I'll run it tomorrow and see what comes up.
  8. How to remove SalesMagnet (Adware for Google Chrome)

    Getting stuff like that off your computer can get maddening. It took me three days to figure out how to get that Bing search engine from hijacking my browser settings and home page. Some of Bing's distribution methods are just legalized virus programs. Have you ever tried Spybot Search and Destroy?
  9. Blue Origin Thread (merged)

    I'm actually quite shocked by how small the barge is compared to the rocket stage and too much junk on deck as well.
  10. Blue Origin Thread (merged)

    Well if it's still on the barge, I wonder if the engines are still salvageable? I can see tipping over damaging the upper tank, but the landing gear might still protect the engines. Well assuming no fire.
  11. Apple Watch

    Yep, they should have kept a better watch on that apple.
  12. Apple Watch

    I'm reasonable happy with my $35 dollar Timex watches. They tell the time, no one is going to rob me for one and if I break it, I won't feel like jumping from the roof.
  13. Is the invention of rockets a good thing?

    You can still deliver nuclear weapons by aircraft and intercontinental range ground-launched cruise missiles. Where there is enough will, there is a weapon system that will get it there.
  14. Humanization

    I think I'd only want humans if it is possible to make them proportionally accurate. Otherwise I'd rather see the Kerbal equivalent of a chimpanzee or a Robonaut like robot: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robonaut
