Gryph spotted this Guardian article from 2002.  I don't remember it, but they cite me (by my old name) - probably due to the college paper I wrote on the subject.

Hmm, I do have a copy of The Orange Box, and I think I also have the full Valve bundle on Steam... I should go and play HL2 all the way through someday.  I never got around to it.

A look at NASA's plans for the Mercury Mark II Program - which morphed into Gemini.  I wonder if she'll take a look at Advanced Gemini, Big Gemini, Blue Gemini, or Gemini B.  Or the Manned Orbital Laboratory for that matter.  There really were a lot of Gemini-based concepts. :-)

Interesting.  Sand ingestion is a serious issue for aircraft operating in a desert environment, and it has disabled many aircraft.  (Some of you remember Desert One and what that entailed.)  Sand turns to glass in hot turbine engines and can just destroy the engine, and even if not it requires a lot of maintenance and shortens the service life of the engine before overhaul is required.  So it is interesting to see the filter system Bell-Boeing developed for the V-22.  It seems to be highly effective if the claims in the video are valid.

A geek named MegaZone.
Introduction
I have a mononym.  My full legal name is MegaZone, which I use as a last name.  I have no first name, so I use Mr as a placeholder when one is required.

Let's see if Google suspends my account for not having a 'normal' name.  (They did, but I got it back.)

This place has just opened - a soft-open before the official grand opening - and I've been in twice. The food is fantastic and a very welcome break from the fast food places in the neighborhood. And they have a number of great vegetarian options - which is nice as my wife is vegetarian. In addition to the great food the staff are all friendly and personable and were happy to talk with new customers and accept feedback as they work out the 'just opened' kinks. This is definitely a place I'll be returning to.

I've been purchasing furniture for several years and I will continue to do so. The experience is great - no pressure from sales people, great selection, good prices, and fantastic service. A great tip is to make major purchases during one of their promotions, like the Red Sox promo in the spring. Then use the credit later in the year to make a smaller purchase. More bang for your buck!
