I stare at this thing and think.. man, this would be better if it were just facebook with groups.
actually, if facebook would just introduce groups I will just shut down my little operation here and forget it entirely.
Why do people show up on my friends list who are not on g+? do I email crap to them every time I post? if I do, that is really obtrusive.

Still drinking that haterade,

people can force you into any group on facebook. I can make a group and add you to it against your will. Also, facebook only shows news feed of people whose profile you visit. Circles allows me to take control of what feed I see.

Soo, Mojave living is pretty nice. I have me a house, a garage, a laundry machine, all that modern convenience stuff.
XCOR is a fantastic place where we are quite literally building the future. If you want a glimpse of what it is like to work there, go grab some Heinlein off your shelf. The refit of the Rolling Stone in "The Rolling Stones" is a good example.

The flightline is very cool, always interesting things landing and taking off. There is a pact of secrecy on the line so all I can say is that, dang, we are some clever critters out here.

My neighbor is an expert aerospace machinist and dune buggy pro. His wife owns horses.. they keep horses on their land. I moved from a 1 bedroom in Venice and now my neighbor has horses.

My next steps is to get back into cooking and reading, and working out. the food options in town are pretty grim, and not much better beyond.

I have found that my years in film have paid great dividends. the amazing thing is is that a problem is a problem. An engineering problem is not too different than a VFX problem. Both require data gathering, experimentation, planning, acceptance of failure, teamwork. Problems are problems, and if you become an expert at anything you can sideload that ability into any other venture.

Which brings me to a thought that oft enters my mind. It seems to this honest man that the greatest illness of my age is attitude. I meet people all the time who are unable or unwilling to see their own abilities. They have created compelling cages of doubt and fear in their mind that prevent them from attempting new challenges. I often hear "Oh, I am not that good at X". Recently I have been giving a canned response, "Now is the time to get good".

Because there is no better time than now. The reaper does not take smoke breaks. He won't be late for your ultimate appointment.

What stops people from doing things is a lack of familiarity and a fear of failure. The way to become more adept at life is to accept failure, to even love failure. This goes for work and for love, for play and friendship. Failure is the foundation that you build your successes on.

Washing machines crucial modern living machines. Once I can afford one in space I'll consider moving.

"This gallery is comprised of the early works, known among collectors as the 'nozzle-in-the-side-of-the-frame' period." (It also may or may not cause your browser to play string bass music for no reason.)

But really. Neat stuff, now needs moar bigger neat stuff.

What amuses me most about these things posted to YouTube is that people still take the time to composite the captions into the video instead of using YouTube's closed caption system.

I would sincerely appreciate it if you would consider contacting your representative next week. It's important that the private sector be given a chance to replace the space shuttle as the US's human launcher, but that will be difficult if Nasa's budget to support such development is cut.
Today the US Space Shuttle lifted off successfully for the last time. Earlier this week, the U.S. House of Representatives’ Appropriations Subcommittee on Commerce, Science, and Justice threw quite a...
