That launcher test flight turned out so good that it’s time to reach out for a destination farther than just a moon.

Inappropriate Footwork

Some people can be real sticklers for detail. Especially when it comes to more high profile parties and suchlike. People like this are the bane of Harry’s existence.

Not only does he constantly run afoul of one or more such people who have very set in stone ideas about how something should be done but usually he manages, completely without trying, to grate the worst possible nerve of such people.

A good example is a recent party that he had somehow gotten invited to. (why he gets invited when the people know he’s the most likely one to offend them I’ll never understand. I guess it’s their idea of protocol or something) Anyway.. he gets invited and of course he shows up because he’s a really social guy. Loves parties and special events of all kinds where he can meet lots of new people as well as catching up with friends & such.

Well, the story goes that all was well though most of the evening. Then suddenly, about an hour before the event was to end, Harry was summarily ejected from the premises. Why? Because apparently he managed to offend the organizers (big surprise). Seems that he was seen dancing with an attractive young lady (which is fine of course) however the organizers saw that they were performing what they called a “wedding dance” and that this particular dance was somehow grossly inappropriate for this particular social occasion. Something about the guest of honor being a confirmed bachelor.

If I was Harry, I’d try to be more particular about what invitations I accepted.

E-009- Unexpected Test Results

After additional work re-designing the launcher I decided that it was time for an un-manned test flight. The results of which were quite a surprise.

I totally did not expect this.

E-008- Talking And Re-designing

I take another look at spaceplanes and then talk about why I’ve not been doing KSP lately while I re-design the launch vehicle used for the moon flights.

Spring Cleaning In August

July 22nd, 2014 | Posted in Misc | Comments Off on Spring Cleaning In August

What happens when you’re not feeling good? Well there are a lot of things that result from being under the weather. The biggest is simply that things you need to be doing, things that you would normally stay caught up on, get left sitting there undone.

The longer you’re down and the worse you feel, the worse the situation gets. In my case it’s resulted in my house gradually becoming a major mess from one end to the other.

I saw this building up over the last few months but flatly didn’t have the energy to do anything about it other than try to slow the buildup of the mess. Now I’m starting to feel a little better and I’ve begun what looks like is going to be a long painful job of housecleaning. I’m starting on this project in August and will probably be fixing this mess over the next six months or more by just trying to clean up a little more each day than the mess I make for that day. Eventually I’ll get caught up and then it *should* be easy to stay that way.
