    For the Techno freaks among us

    Having worked in aerospace for many years I find this very interesting. It is a beautiful hi-def view of the flight deck of the space shuttle Discovery. Use your mouse to move & zoom. It looks well used and there’s an abundance of Velcro.

    Way to cool.
    Measure twice, cut three times, start over. Repeat as necessary.

    That's not velco - those are post-it notes.
    They take the old ones off, after every mission.

    "Before entering airlock, don EMU."
    "Did you turn off the stove?"

    "Who drank the last of my Tang?"
    "Anyone know how to get orange stains off the blue jumper?"

    Very cool! As I mentioned in the other shuttle thread I hope we get back to the business of going to space soon, an expense I don't think we can afford not to cover.
    Of all the laws Brandolini's may be the most universally true.

    Deep thought for the day:

    Your bandsaw weighs more when you leave the spring compressed instead of relieving the tension.

    Now that's a bit more complicated than the needle & ball in the old Aeronca
    Epilog 24TT(somewhere between 35-45 watts), CorelX4, Photograv(the old one, it works!), HotStamping, Pantograph, Vulcanizer, PolymerPlatemaker, Sandblasting Cabinet, and a 30 year collection of Assorted 'Junque'

    Every time you make a typo, the errorists win

    I Have to think outside the box.. I don't fit in it anymore


    Experience is a wonderful thing.
    It enables you to recognize a mistake when you make it again.


    Every silver lining has a cloud around it
