    The Question?

    Best light saber fights in all of the franchise, Darth Maul, Liam Neeson, what's not to like? Best of the bunch.

    Thanks, but I'll be a good boy.

    Oh come on! They've made rocket launches (almost) boring to watch, and now, the first one I miss watching live, this happens. Anyway, I like how the core still extends landing legs, as if they're going to help with water landing.

    Just come over and say: "I want to work here!" Not quite. I work at a (fairly) large model train layout that is open for public. This is part of it: Sorry, Christmas puked all over it.

    Wouldn't my perfect response be a cheek pinch? Just a thought, but if you assume the guy doesn't speak English, why do you assume it can read Arabic numerals? Fun short story though. I like it.

    Wait, are you saying we're not supposed to have games on our work computers? jk, I actually don't have any installed, but then again, I do get paid to play with model trains at work, so it's not all that bad.

    Advice required!! Python or C# or C?

    Full disclosure, I'm not a programmer. I do, however do some programming for my work related suff. The very first program I wrote that had an intended use, other than being purely academic, was written in C#, about eight years ago. The little thing is still used today at my work. It's a tiny, but marvelous time saver program that does some brute force combinatorial calculations. Incidently, it is also the last program I wrote in C#. Nowdays, all my programming is in C/C++ since it all ends up in embeded microcontrollers. Point being, the choice of language depends on intended use.

    So they could hypothetically meet in about a year.

    Thread to complain bout stuff

    I actually did it. Found a seven segment display array and a matrix LCD I bough couple of years ago I intended to use for a physical readout for KSP. I might get back to that project one day.

    Thread to complain bout stuff

    I have a simple system that does the deciding for me: It gets chucked if: - I expect not to use it use again - I haven't used it for more than 2 years The problem I have is deciding to actually clean up the clutter. I guess I should do something about my mess as well. Tomorrow, I promise.
