  • Location Escaping from the campus...
  • Interests Model railroading, backyard astronomy, space exploration, music (composition, play the French Horn, Alto Recorder, and Cornet), learning to play the ukulele (seriously, I am :D), kit-bashing, camping and hiking, reading great science fiction, and escaping the university campus any chance I get!

    I teach World Civilization, U.S. History, and U.S. Foreign Policy at the college/university level. So, with that said, I love history, love to do research, and enjoy good conversation.

  1. Quote of the day:

    "The Sun, with all those planets revolving around it and dependent upon it, can still ripen a bunch of grapes as if it had nothing else in the Universe to do."

    Galileo Galilei
    (Feb 15, 1564 - Jan 08, 1642)
    Quote taken from his work, The Dialogue Concerning the Two Chief World Systems, first published in 1632.

    Galileo Galilei was an Italian polymath: astronomer, physicist, engineer, philosopher, and mathematician. He has been called the "father of observational astronomy", the "father of modern physics", the "father of the scientific method", and the "father of science". Galileo studied speed and velocity, gravity and free fall, the principle of relativity, inertia, projectile motion and also worked in applied science and technology, describing the properties of pendulums and "hydrostatic balances", inventing the thermoscope and various military compasses, and using the telescope for scientific observations of celestial objects.

  2. Sometimes a mod writer will ask, as part of their license, for their mod not to be bundled. The reasoning behind this is that there are times mods conflict with other mods. If your friend begins to add to the mods you give them WITHOUT knowing where the mods come from, then they will not be able to get the information about potential conflicts, fixes, or even updates. (I do not use CKAN, I prefer to manually update my mods). Best thing to do is to teach your friend how to install mods, then send them a link to the mods you use. Once you've done this, your friend will not be dependent upon you, won't be Pakled, and will enjoy KSP more knowing how it works...
  3. A non-moderator comes along with his excavator and removes your hill, leaving behind a big crater and another large hill about twenty meters away.
  4. I have a "Doodemon" and for some reason, whenever I see his name, I immediately think it's Jamaican. Think of this with a Jamaican accent: "dude eh man!"
  5. Wow... and in spite of what @thekspbegginer says, I CAN take it... and I will take it... But here are some points to ponder in the meantime: Hahaha.... one of the best lines yet. Like nothing else they've been through has hurt... Sometime, though, there's more satisfaction in slamming a sledge hammer into things than to use cunningness and trickery. (Older video from 1975 chosen because it does not contain profanity). Yes! Svengoolie lives! Um, ok... another great line. I've known a few places like this... and yes, even went to a few of them! Hahaha - wonder if she's related to that other great plant - Robert Plant - if you watch the video, he kinda looks like a Sims3 character! And finally (ending my comments on a bad pun...) Is it safe to say that Baddie is a hottie? Get it... fire... hottie...
  6. Just to keep you all informed, the first week of coursework is now in the can. 15 more weeks until winter recess! But I already have the screen shots I need for the next chapter. I have some things to do tomorrow morning, but plan to write the next chapter in the afternoon. Here's a teaser image...
  7. I'm thinking of video recording it and sharing it. I live in the total eclipse zone...
  8. There are a few mods I have that specifically say "do not redistribute as a part of a bundle" is why I said what I did. Copying your GaneData folder, in a way, is bundling mods. Not meaning to rain on anyone's parade.
  9. And I would like to add to that... Read each mods' release notes. If it says not to redistribute it, then you have to leave that mod out.
  10. Not really, but I'm in good company... You're also 9/10!
  11. 8/10 - I see you around the forum often...
  12. How do I restore the startup screen? Right now, all three Kermen have storage container back packs...
  13. Can see it now, @StrandedonEarth - I can already hear some alien scream out... "get out of my crater, you bunch of human delinquents!"
  14. If we ever create colonies on the Moon, we might get to the point that going to Grandma's house involves getting on board a shuttle, traversing the space between the Moon and Earth, and then reentering and landing at a space port (now that would be cool!). Then to get back home, you'd have to do the whole process in reverse! Can you imagine being 14 years old and being a "space traveler"?
