    What did you do in KSP today?

    This is my new bush plane, with an optional ejection seat (uses KAX for the propeller). More images:

    What did you do in KSP today?

    It's ugly as hell, but it does fly! Its sole purpose is "technology" demonstration. The wings are quite fragile, they can't survive a rough landing. The whole craft with maximum (allowed) amount of fuel in the tanks weighs around 150 tons and holds 240 passengers + crew.

    What did you do in KSP today?

    Today I concluded the maiden voyage of my first Minmus-capable SSTO (in the new aerodynamics). It has the potential to be developed into an interplanetary craft (the prototype landed on Minmus with ~8 tons of liquid fuel left) by adding a mining kit, and some sort of crew module. It's powered by 8 RAPIERs and 2 nukes.

    I laughed up loud in front of the monitor It's not a juno engine, but a small circular intake put there to resemble an APU exhaust.

    What did you do in KSP today?

    Finally built a decent-looking Mk3 airliner with good balance and long range. Its engines are a bit underpowered compared to its size, but they can accelerate the craft to nearly mach 1 at higher alitudes.

    Testing out a towbarless tug for pushing back aircraft on the apron.

    SSTOs! Post your pictures here~

    Hi there! Since several versions (and aero changes), I have played KSP the first time today. I've tried some SSTO designs, but only achieved munar orbit so far: Approaching the home planet: Final (third) reentry: Approaching KSC RWY 09 Deploying drag chute. Mission success!

    How many things can you cook?

    I can cook every kind of pre-made food, like those ramen noodles. Delicious but pretty unhealthy. that means i can't cook at all lel

    I expected more europeans, specifically central and eastern europeans... My closest neighbor is from Vienna, approx 200 kms away...
  11. Yeah, I know the Surface Pro, but that's way too expensive (especially in Hungary, with its world-record 27% VAT -.-). I've seen cheaper hybrids like some Asus Transformers, Acer Aspire Switch series and others. I just don't know if they could get the job done.
  12. Hello! I'm considering buying a new portable device which would complement my home desktop computer. I'm in the second year of my university studies, and I'm in need of a computer-like thingy I could carry to the school everyday. I have used Android and iOS tablets before, but I didn't like them very much, mostly because the absence of the "normal" PC GUI (i.e. windows & desktop), the lack of PC controls (physical mouse and physical keyboard), and the tendency of slowing down to unusable levels in 1-2 years. Portability is very important for me: the device should be small enough to be carried safely in a backpack (while riding a bike), so I'd forget the 'standard' 15,6" laptops as they're big and heavy (and difficult to protect). The absolute maximum I'd accept is ~13". By portability I also mean endurance, so the device should survive at least 5-10 hours without recharging under light workload (like MS Word). Budget-wise I'm constrained to ~$500 or below. The devices defined by these criteria (afaik) are Windows-based 2in1 hybrids and subnotebooks, mostly equipped with quad-core Atom and Pentium processors. What would I use the device for, you'd ask? -Viewing and editing PDF and DOC files -Browsing the web -Playing old games (like Age of Empires II and Transport Tycoon) -Viewing RAW and JPG photos on the go -Occasional photo editing (in Photoshop or Lightroom - and by ocassional I mean ocassional, like 1-2 photos at a time. I know these small devices are weak for heavy workloads, and their screens aren't up for the job either - for serious work I have my desktop machine. So here is my question: do devices with the specified properties exist in the given price range? Which family of processors is generally better (I hope it's not a dumb question) for my activities? Thanks for your answers in advance.

    ~ awesome aircraft thread ~

    I shot this yesterday. Boeing 777F, a very rare sight at Budapest Airport, starting its long journey to Singapore. It's the heaviest two engined aircraft after the 777-300ER with a whopping 347,8 ton MTOW.

    Railfans room

    Muh trains! I usually go railfanning, mostly in Hungary and Austria. One of the most popular locos in Hungary, the M61 "Nohab" at Káptalanfüred A high-speed ICE T train at the new Wien Hauptbahnhof with the modern ÖBB headquarters in the background.

    What have you made in real life (showcase)

    Mother of God, that Millenium Falcon is just amazing. I wouldn't have the patience to build one I do "planespotting" a lot in the summer, which includes a lot of "photography". Sometimes I attend press events where they let the journalists go into the A/C, the apron, taxiways, etc. I dunno why I posted only A332s, maybe cause they are the largest passenger aircraft to fly regularly to LHBP (until Emirates introduces the B77W in December!).
