Re: Been kinda quiet lately

Admittedly I haven't posted anything either. What happened to everyone? Haven't felt like starting new topics, of course, I'm also largely ignoring the news currently. Seems to be an ongoing train wreck, pretty much as expected. Seems I wasn't the only only one with low expectations, other places I...

Re: Rotten, here's some Rebar for you.

Well, melt it anyhow. Allegedly, it is easier to work with in terms of cutting it. It also is much lighter, and slightly more elastic. What it doesn't do better than Rebar is bend into shapes. If you want to do that, you have the heat the stuff up to some very high temps. Evidently it makes for some...

Well, that is handy. Updated PHPBB today, and now it comes with built in support for Google's ReCaptcha service, which has now been enabled. Let the bots fight it out with Google.

That's because theirs is directed inward more than anything else.

Unless you plan on dropping that space rock on planet earth itself, you're still going to need to move the equipment into orbit.

There is still a dearth of empirical evidence indicating what a Trump presidency will actually look like. So I still wonder what these "consequences" are.

Re: Ghostbusters Trailer Reactions

The Ghostbusters reboot movie is a decent work of comedy. I just needed to constantly remind myself that Dan Akryod said they always viewed it(Ghostbusters) primarily as a comedy during (more than) a few points in the movie.

Also, the progression of the story was rather clunky.
