Re: SpaceX have turned rocket science into Spaghetti Engineering

I understand when people believe things are impossible. At some point though, the impossible thinkers have to accept the impossible is possible, and Mr. Elon Musk has proven that, time, and time again. Yet, people still say Mr. Elon Musk cannot do the impossible, yet... the proof is there for everyone the world over to see that he, Mr. Elon Musk, IS, our present great mind of the world that knows too much than he should, but he works with it, and he gives it to us, regardless.

I cannot think of a single person alive today that can stand taller that Mr. Elon Musk's gift to the world that he is.

Re: SpaceX have turned rocket science into Spaghetti Engineering

Oh. Right. So you're comparing SpaceX with Apple? Go back to your dial-up landline Internet access, fool!

These tests by SpaceX have NOT cost a single life. The only cost is to Mr. THE BEST PERSON ON THE FUCKING FACE OF THIS PLANET Musk, and his investors.

What did it cost you? Oh... apologies.. you... what... wasted a few hours watching the NASASpaceFlight YouTube feed? Diddums.

Meanwhite, the rest of the planet sees this as a massive step towards the future of human space flight to the Moon, Mars, and beyond.

Re: Come Down From Your Ivory Tower

Apple and Google are big defenders of personal privacy, are they not? Shirley the next update can include the option of having a two password system? One password unlocks the phone, the other one wipes it.

Re: Who needs proof anymore?

I saw it too... but thought I probably didn't read it correctly, coz, like, the FBI can't charge someone with a crime if the evidence of a crime does not exist, right?

We Saw Nothing - Obviously

Going by the comments here, what I saw with about 5 other family members, just didn't happen, or what we saw was an experimental aircraft of some kind.

That was 45 years ago, and whatever that experimental aircraft was, it still hasn't been approved for production.

A massive dense red triangular object slowly moving across the sky in the early evening.

I've read reports of a similar object appearing from time to time in other parts of the world.

I have no idea what it was we saw, where it came from, where it went to, or anything, but what we saw was real (i was six years old, so little chance of mind altering substances being involved).

Hello AC,

I'm glad you got that off your chest. And I'm also glad your post made it past moderators. I've had quite a number of posts rejected on these here forums, and usually for very good reason, though sometimes I have NFI why. But, hey, it's not my website :)

Another IT Guy

I had a friend call up one day saying;

"My laptop won't boot up. It looks like something is about to happen, but then the screen goes blank, then nothing."

So I asked this friend to remove everything connected to the laptop i.e. all USB devices, any audio products, the power lead, and the battery.

"Make sure nothing is connected to the laptop." I said.

Friend: "Nothing is connected to the laptop."

Then I got him to just plug the power lead in and try turning it on again.

Same thing - looks like something is going to happen, but nothing really happens at all.

"OK. Leave it as is. I'll see you in a couple of hours."

On arrival, I found the wireless mouse receiver still plugged into one of the USB ports. Upon removing this, the laptop booted straight away.

Someone had used much effort in trying to connect a USB device with the plug being the wrong way around.

He bought me lunch :)
