NASA trusted 'traditional' Boeing to program its Starliner without close supervision... It failed to dock due to bugs


The article states: "At a press conference on Tuesday, NASA confirmed why Boeing's CST-100 Starliner spaceship failed to hook up with the International Space Station last year. The answer: as expected, buggy code."

Can anybody confirm that the same people who did the code for the 767MAX are NOT working on the Starliner?

Astroboffins baffled as black hole at center of Milky Way suddenly a lot hungrier than before


narrow-minded, single-topic idiots.

1. The entire galaxy does not revolve around trump. GET OVER IT.

2. When reading how hungry this hole is also please consider the distance, and the TIME. Now calculate in your tiny trumpian minds how long it took the light that we see to get from there to here. If there is a problem then we are dead already.

3. And that giant sucking sound you may hear is not Trump, not even Melania(correct sp?). It is Ivanka, entertaining(last word: noun or verb?)

Boeing big cheese repeats pledge of 737 Max software updates following fatal crashes

Thumb Down

Smell that? It is not burning jet fuel it is pure GREED (optional, of course) but the GREED is pure.

Based on reports about the MAX airliners that if Boeing made automobiles they would make brakes optional, at a 'small' extra cost, however. You can always just drag your feet to stop the car.

Profit was placed above safety and concern. I'll almost bet Boeing exec's travel on Airbus.

Blood spilled from another US high school shooting has yet to dry – and video games are already being blamed


you got it wrong!

The Texas Twit who was crying about video games being the cause of the recent school shooting was a little outdated. His aides clarified his comments with corrections.

Recently, the Pope told a gay man "God made you like this... God loves you like this." and the loosey-leu governor meant that the pope was to blame for the Texas massacre.

Hey just ask all the other gun nutz!

Modern life is rubbish – so why not take a trip down memory lane with Windows File Manager?


I Remember ...

I remember a DOS application that could be used in windows caller "Ifiler" or maybe 'Winfile" that showed sourc and destination on the same screen. Windows sucked compared to that one. Wish I could find a copy ...

It's Patch Blues-day: Bad October Windows updates trigger BSODs


no problems for home users? HOHOHO!

Regarding your comment in the article about "KB 4041676" not causing glitches for home users:

my HP Pro book installed the update 8 or 9 times (By now I have lost count) only to immediately reboot again and uninstall it.

No BSOD but all the pc does is install-reboot-uninstall-reboot and send me to a web page that says "Tell us how good we are(n't)"


I keep telling myself to stick with Linux or just go back to DOS. I STILL HAVE ALL MY NEEDED SOFTWARE FROM MY 8088.

They were both detestable in melodrama and impractical in any application of the so-called sciences they tried to apply to their themes.

Mankind goes forth for money, plain and simple. Ask the American Indians, the Aztecs, the peoples of the South Seas, the "Abo's" of Australia.

Get the theme right and the sciences applied right and then ask me again which 'show' was better. I've watched many and most, Firefly comes closest to true theme based on true life, although the science was questionable. The movie Serenity, based on Firefly was bad science as well but closer than almost every other show on motive.

Re-ask the question as: Which is closer to reality? Dystopia or Utopia ...

Earlier titles treated the subject as "Robinson Crusoe on Mars", different and highly illogical based on what we know today but believable when the book was written (early 50's [?])
