  1. This popped up in my news feed this morning. Kudos to this young man, nice work. Enjoy... https://hackaday.com/2024/07/10/model-rocket-nails-vertical-landing-after-three-year-effort/
  2. Ojakhuri, Kachapuri, and home wine. We're in the Republic of Georgia (6 months vacation), and everything is fresh daily!
  3. Sorry, a little late here, been MIA. Yes, the music (I don't care what game it is) is immediately turned off... I want game, not music.
  4. Are you talking about the cloaked Stalker? Normal. Wait until you hit the upper levels (7,8,9)... ha! If you run into cloaked or flying Chargers, that's a glitch.
  5. Arvind Mithal (MIT professor and computer scientist), died June 17th, age 77. His name jumped out at me, remembering him for his work with parallel computing back in the day. RIP. https://news.mit.edu/2024/computer-science-professor-arvind-dies-0618
  6. Edward C. Stone, 1936-2024. RIP https://www.caltech.edu/about/news/edward-stone-1936-2024
  7. Oh no!... Wednesday! Lisa Loring, the actress best known for portraying Wednesday Addams in “The Addams Family,” died of a stroke on Sunday night. She was 64 years old.
  8. I play Squad. I like it. If you're spending a lot of time walking it's likely because of poorly experienced leadership and lack of teamwork and communication. Most squad leaders I've had the misfortune to work under lack any real tactical experience or training. Throw multiple such leaders into the mix, and then allow them to pick a commander between themselves, and it's a recipe for disaster. A scattered few whom I've played with who have some manner of real military training (tactical and/or combat experience), has made for an entirely different round in the game. I should mention, these guys all tend to be over the age of 30. Perhaps that is the difference.
  9. That did not occur to me, so I'll go take a look. It's likely set to '1' as the double caret doesn't expand it further. Thanks!

    Two Juno!

    Cool video. When I Googled "cri cri plane", one of things in the results was 'What is Cri Cri made of?' ... so of course I had to look. Thinking carbon fiber or some such thing, I was a bit surprised at the answer; "...a whole hazelnut covered in dark chocolate and rolled in crunchy bites of sugar!" Ok. I can work with that.
  11. Wow... how did I miss this one? RIP Saw him with Link Wray in a NYC club back in 1983 (Warren Zevon was sitting next to me at the next table, he's gone too). Awesome show, I'll never forget it.
