CRS-13 Is Successfully Launched To The International Space Station

After several delays, the final CRS flight of 2017, CRS-13, launched on a Falcon 9 rocket from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station Launch Complex 40 for a standard cargo resupply mission to the International Space Station. This mission was a somewhat critical one – after the delay of the mysterious Zuma payload, SpaceX basically hasn’t …

Keeping Useless Junk Around For The Future – A Quick Thought

When I think about my hobbies, one common trend I’ve noticed is that much of them involve, for on reason or another, me desiring to keep things that do work doing what they do. Hell, its also my job, actually – much of my day to day game store work is actually repairing old game …

Cube – A YouTube Relic

In the interest of putting something out today (I’ve been a little under the weather the past few days), I’ve decided to break out this relic from YouTube circa 2006 – a video for a fictional game called CUBE! It’s actually a rather nice animation for what it tries to parody; late 80’s / early …

Why “Flight Proven” Means Nothing To Me

The primary focus that SpaceX has in its endeavours is in re-usability of launch vehicles. The Falcon 9, in current form, is a launch vehicle in which the first stage is capable of making a controlled landing back at the launch site, or on a drone ship in the ocean (as launch needs permit) and …

The Great Red Spot Plunge

Today NASA released a nice little video simulation of what it would be like to enter Jupiter’s Great Red Spot – a massive storm, larger than the Earth, that has been raging on the planet for at least 300 years! Incidentally, Jupiter is probably my favorite planet in the solar system – As a kid …

The Dumbest Scammers Of 2017

Been a good long while since I did anything regarding tech support scams. Rather than another typical video of a scam in action, I thought it would be fun to share this compilation by YouTuber Jim Browning, certainly one of the most thorough and mature scambaiters, where he shows what he feels were the dumbest …

RIP Angry Grandpa

I was rather shocked to read today about the death of a well known, and clearly well loved YouTube celebrity, Charles Green, better known as Angry Grandpa. This one kind of hit me hard – I followed the show passively, but had been aware of it and the family, for quite a while, checking out …

Whoa, the Nerd covering a Playstation Game? Man, 2007 really was a year of growth and expansion for James and the Angry Video Game Nerd. Right, getting to the point, in this episode we have Independence Day for the Sony Playstation. It’s a pretty average game – that sub-par kind of average, from the looks …

SpaceX Successfully Static-Fires A Falcon 9 At Launch Complex 40

I wouldn’t normally cover a test firing of a Falcon 9 stage, but this one is kind of important – it marks the first use of Launch Complex 40 since the September 2016 explosion of a Falcon 9 booster destroyed the launch facility. Going back to that explosion, it happened during the same kind of …
