I've tried every which way to get my NES30 working with either of my computers (mac and windows). It's impossible, I give up. Do you want the controller to mess around with? I figure you might be able to do something with it. ï»¿
I finally finished Seveneves. I wish there was more.
Also, have you heard of the Subaru Levorg?ï»¿
I'm trying to understand acceleration.
I am doing it wrong I think. How does this work? (Can I simplify torque like this?)

1hp = 550ft:lb/s = power = torque x rpm / 5252
Torque = force
f=ma

Toyota Sequoia
mass = 5295
hp = 240
torque = 315 lb:ft
a = f/m = 315 lb:ft / 5295 lbs = .05949 lb:ft/lbï»¿

Considering selling my current cintiq and dropping 3k for the 16in souped up model in about a year. The size alone is incredibly appealing, but the added graphics card means I can do actual 3d animation again, which I have been missing quite a bit. ï»¿

I'm trying to figure out this whole suv/truck body vs cuv/unibody distinction.
This is a "crossover" that was nominated for "truck" of the year.

So I know that, despite the obvious safety and reliability of a single engine, engineering one big engine has its own difficulties. And I know that traditional planes can still fly to safety with only some of their engines working, but with rockets it's all or nothing. But with a ramjet powered suborbital booster, would the following picture make ANY sense? Or would you want a single big ramjet engine?ï»¿
