  1. Still working on quality issues, but opinions on the new animated profile picture?

  2. I saw a McLaren today. I was really suprised and impressed to see a car of such value,  but then I realized I saw multiple jets that easily cost 50 times that in the same day. Funny how rarity affects our preception of worth.

  3. Is youtube acting up for anyone else? I just got a 500 internal server error on my computer.

      It's down. What has the world come to??

      I tried to go to youtube.com/feed/subscriptions and it gave me a 500 internal server error

    4. Tech_Dreamer


      pewds broke the 67 mill , so probably thats the reason , He broke youtube as well along with that.

  4. Well, Windows thinks I should update now. I heard the file deletion bug was fixed, but I don't have a backup right now. Think I should risk it?

    1. Ryan_Vickers


      No, why would you risk it?  What could possibly be worth that?

    2. DrMacintosh


      I'm pretty sure I have Windows iterative backups on. But I have no idea how to use it. 


      My Mac is backed up to hell but my PC is basically a walking time bomb

    3. Hiitchy


      No risk it, no biscuit. I've already backed up all my files to my NAS but yes, definitely make sure you're backing your stuff up.

  5. OJTheAviator

    I need Word, Powerpoint, and Excel for Mac

    You could also try using an open source alternative like LibreOffice. It isn't exactly like MS Office, but it is very similar, can open all the common files, and is free.
  6. Looking at it again, it turns out the G920 includes pedals, the TMX does not. Thanks!
  7. I'm looking at pc force feedback racing wheels, and two stand out to me: the Logitech G920 ($245), and the Thrustmaster TMX ($160). They both seem to have high reviews, and both have force feedback, but the TMX is almost $100 cheaper. Does anyone have experiance with these? Is the difference really worth $100 or would the TMX be a good experiance and better value? $245 is a little more than I was hoping to spend. Thanks!

    Whoosh - The Airplane and Airline Thread

    I've always thought canard planes like the p180 looked cool, although don't know much about them. I did see one fly into my local airport once though.

    Whoosh - The Airplane and Airline Thread

    The Cirrus Vision jet is pretty neat, also affordable (when talking about jet-powered flying aluminum luxury vehicles )
  10. Anothe flight lesson cancelled due to the Bedminster TFR. Regardless of political views,  I think it's safe to say that most pilots within 30nm of Bedminster are pretty annoyed at the flying condtion every other weekend or so. Oh well, not much I can do but try again next week :)

  11. I'm building an Aluminum foundry for a school project, hoping to do some metal melting soon. I'm still deciding what to cast, any ideas? I'm guessing my crucible can hold about a half a quart or half a liter at a time, so not a ton of metal.

    1. Jtalk4456


      i want to play with it!

    2. ScratchCat


      @Jtalk4456 I'll help! I can call the ambulance!

    3. OJTheAviator


      Hmm. An aluminum ambulance...

  12. Formal Definition of a Limit today. :|. Why do some textbooks make it so complicated when there is a straightforward definition that makes sense?



    1. ZeouLs


      Cause they want to watch the world burn, no seriously I had a book that noone in the class understood but when explained with different wording it made so much more sense. Idk maybe they think overcomplicating things = makes you smarter or some shit like that

  13. Well I just found out Printrbot went out of buisness. It's a shame, the Printrbot Play was a good printer, I guess it'll be nearly impossible to find old online manuals and support stuff :(.

  14. This is ironic. The US Mint probably put effort into making sure the penny looks like copper even though it is mostly zinc. Now I'm re electroplating the penny with zinc, and it looks as if there was never any copper there at all xD

      steel cents are my favorite. Also

      *starts long conversation about how the penny should not be in use anymore

      @Jtalk4456 what about half pennies don't you which those were still around

    4. Jtalk4456


      as collectibles, I have a few, but for currency, it costs more to make than their worth, same for pennies


      In 2005, the cost to the United States Mint to produce a penny was 0.97¢, which was just a smidge under a cent. In 2006, that year’s pennies each cost about 1.23¢ to manufacture. Rises in metal prices, particularly of zinc, pushed the per-unit cost up to 1.7¢ in 2007. By 2012, production costs had risen to 2.41¢ per penny.


  15. AP Physics is really fun (just got 100% on a quiz)! AP Calculus... well, I'll get through it :). The issue with calculus is really just that my precalc/trig course was kind of terrible, so I'm having to relearn and learn for the first time a bunch of trigonometry material. Still, I'm expecting the calculus to get better

      That's good to hear!


      I'm pretty good at math, but I still have it xD

      I don't know that I'd ever willingly take an AP math course.

    2. GDRRiley


      So I had a horrible pre calc teacher and a bad calc teacher so in the end i took it at a CC.

      Now AP physics i've heard is fun but I never have had enough free space to take it.
