  1. I'm looking for recommendations for science podcasts (english or french) and blogs (english). They do have to be audio podcasts. It's really hard and just a little bit discouraged to try and watch videos and drive at the same time. Just about any level of accessibility... though early grade school might be out. But if you know of some i know some people who might be interested. I've currently got in my active podcast list the following: - Quirks and Quarks, http://www.cbc.ca/radio/quirks - 60-Second Science, https://www.scientificamerican.com/podcast/60-second-science/ Blog list: - In the Pipeline http://blogs.sciencemag.org/pipeline/
  2. KSP is dead?

    Define: dead
  3. what masses were you working with?
  4. A Thread for Writers to talk about Writing

    always alive. just sometimes it sleeps is all.
  5. I might make another music video. What song should I do?

    Tossing "Eschaton" by Epic Score and "First Flight" by Approaching Nirvana into the suggestion hat. I can't see the link but I think there are a few Audiomachine tracks that will work as well. and "A Bit(e) of Hope" by Marco d'Ambrosio, Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust OST
  6. EN-GB Localisation?

    Long live the Queen! And all those U's are necessary, without them the words look really weird. Besides EN-CA/FR-CA should be the next localization... Eh?
  7. Zero optimization

    Given Doom was released in '93, wouldn't call it much of a test.
  8. Are pictures disappearing?

    hosting on imgur?
  9. Question about the Communotron 16 vs 16-S

    In-verse personal head canon: The kerbelinksy effects caused by the refined belrekium (belrekinium) used in the 16-s to allow the streamlined shape self-interferes in a linear (I think linear... it might be inversely) fashion. So two antennas will interfere to half their power, so net change from one antenna to two is zero. Three will interfere to cut the power by a third, etc. Out-verse reason: Game play balance. Somewhere in the depths of the forum there is a very long, very indepth, very ... heated discussion about the implemented comms system during the tail end of that development cycle.
  10. A Thread for Writers to talk about Writing

    You've got the background plot hook with the question of what happened to Malmy. I'm half hoping a twist on the reveal of those events. A little bit heavy on the K-nouns for my taste. But, that's a cooked carrots issue. "In fact, Bob would reference this exact moment when he, along with six other kerbals, aerobraked in Jool’s atmosphere to slow their interplanetary approach...but that is a story for another day. " The emoticon sticks out a fair bit since there aren't any used elsewhere in the story. You'll also want to drop the "in fact" and " a story for another day." It doesn't look to fit with the rest of the narrative focus that you're using. I've only seen it used decently once. "The Neverending Story" by Michael Ende. I'm going to have to reread it to figure out the setup for that phrase. Keep the story going though.
  11. A Thread for Writers to talk about Writing

    any specific direction of feedback you're looking for?
  12. To follow up that answer. Any decent comparison charts or information on how to read those model numbers? It's been about 8 years since I built my system and had to look or think about such things.
  13. I'm looking to get a new video card. But so many choices and dense terminology. I'm coming off a geforce 9500 GT. I know that ksp isn't currently limited by the video horse power. Any recommendations? Selection constraints: - display two monitors - work well with recording ksp gameplay. Trying to use OBS ATM. - use other than ksp, general home use and retro gaming
  14. A Thread for Writers to talk about Writing

    Read. Read through library up at the top of the forum. Read fiction generally. Read how to write books. We can give you a few recommendations if needed. And read Tvtropes... carefully... with a safety line... and a friend with an axe positioned over the power cable to your computer. I'm going to second having a plan. Especially if you are going over a few thousand words, or are going to be stringing together multiple stories in the same verse. Ask questions, but try to focus them a bit. Ask for reviews, but read them with a bit of thick skin sometimes they can sting a bit.
  15. Be an engineer for the Canuk Space Program: https://emploisfp-psjobs.cfp-psc.gc.ca/psrs-srfp/applicant/page1800?poster=1067972 I would hope that playing KSP would count for experience in the knowledge section. Specifically the following: - Thermal for space - Attitude Control - Orbital Mechanics - Communication Systems - Space Structures
