Hooray, I'm one day older.  37 was a good year, hopefully 38 will be as well!

learning php in trial-by-fire, seems similar to many other things, so lots of carryover experience from other languages. But as always proper design and encapsulation FTW.

So, does anyone else want in on my Kerbal Space Program run-through?

I can't guarantee any roles, apparently there's a function that maps names to roles (pilot, scientist, engineer).  I can say this:  You will go to space.  You might get stranded there.  You might even hit the ground at high rates of speed.

And I got 'beers' autocorrected to 'beets'. Fortunately, g+ allows me to fix typos I notice after hitting "post"
