Re: My first skill level five rocket

It's a close match, but not quite the same piece. I think only the wonks who would argue over a particular fin pattern on another forum would have a problem with someone using it on a clone though.

Re: Mental shown admissions significantly hairs.

I just wanted to add, that with freedom comes a risk. We here at the Starport believe in giving as much freedom as possible. When you join you get immediate access to all member areas and all the abilities of a "regular member". There is no new user category here. no waiting to prove how stupid prov...

Re: Old Launch Photos

It may not be as bad as all that, Luke. I remember the program was touchy and would basically work only with turn of the century current software (Win 98; 2000; NT; ME; XP). There are still some people around running XP, (myself included up till this weekend), so it's not beyond the realm of possibi...

Re: Old Launch Photos

Did you ever get to watch the vids?

I had an Oracle during a "transitional" phase of life and never did get to launch and take video with it. I always wondered what the quality would be on the vids.

When will progressives learn? the minimum wage is not a good thing!

Once again the controversy over the minimum wage hits California. The reporter in this article can understand that the new laws in the San Francisco Bay area mandating a raise in the minimum wage there to $15 an hour by July of 2018, seems to have had an affect on the areas finances. Trying to survi...
