    News Massachusetts Principal Takes Aim at Fall Holidays, Says They're Insensitive

    Quote "When we were young we might have been able to claim ignorance of the atrocities that Christopher Columbus committed against the indigenous peoples," unquote. I have a feeling that "Chris the 'Bus" as he was known to his friends, never actually set foot on the land that is now continental...

    Question Rounding the Horn

    Sorry but I have always thought of "going Round the Horn" was a reference to staff calling out checks, the "horn" being a loudspeaker. The most well known being the mission control for Apollo flights where each dept had to quote go or no go.

    Yeah I was there. Sat up with my Dad, around 0300hrs trying to stay awake even though I totally in to it. My bedroom wall was covered in cuttings from the papers for years after. Even after I had left home for the RAF in 1971.

    Discussion area flattening experiment - SUCCESS

    I think this idea has great merit. I am thinking of the process of making a whole new base, be it on the moon or on earth. Having mapped out a suitable area, the one thing I am sure of is that the terrain will not be suitable for a one metre thick disk of concrete to be poured and call it a...

    Question Daft Question, Seats on ISS

    Thanks for the quick response, Jedidia. What about the human contact element. 4 or 5 sat round talking the day through. In the roof I plan a number of consoles which you would hook up to so you do not drift off while uploading data/ reviewing status and the like. This would be more for the...

    Question Daft Question, Seats on ISS

    I am having a go at modelling a "pod" that crew from a DGiv can go into to spend a few days while the DG orbits the Moon. i.e. to too much to ask that they stay seated in the DG for the duration of the mission. To give a human feel to the place I was going to add a table and chair they could...

    Software Coding Key press / input

    I think I can do the animation it is just getting it "triggered" by a keypress. That code from Deepstar seems to be the sort of thing I need and it gives me a place to drop the animation into. Not sure what the last two "else" are doing other than testing for shift and Alt! Grandkids over the...

    Problem Docking ports, approach and mate

    How very nice of you to think me capable of such skill:rofl: I am 60 and only just worked out joined up writing. Actually one of the lines of thought that I had when I started this vessel was "Why do we need a manned DG just to ferry boxes to and from the surface when we have autopilot like...
