What’s Coming For August 2017 On Xadara

Well, my plans for July 2017 were barely accomplished to any real degree! The whole month was filled with far more activity than I was expecting, and not of the kind that I was wanting to cover – between absolute stupidity here in Memphis (read here and here) , a flurry of SpaceX related news …

A Reminder: I Don’t Hate SpaceX, I Just Hate How Some Fans Behave About It

Tossing this article up since someone, somewhere is going to accuse me of this (get used to it, I feel I’m going to have to say this quite often) : I do not hate SpaceX. I am actually quite enthusiastic about what they do, and what plans they have, but at the same time am …

Photobucket: It’s Not That You’re Charging, But How Much You’re Charging

As the Photobucket drama continues, we’re starting to more often see tweets and other such content criticizing those complaining about the changes Photobucket made last month.

The Computer Chronicles – Web Plugins (1998)

With the death of Flash coming in a few years, it only felt right to share (as I did in the previous article) this episode of the Computer Chronicles from 1998 discussing web plugins – after all, that’s how Flash got started, as a web browser plugin. Oh, those were the days. Granted to a …

Expedition 52-53 Launches To The International Space Station On Soyuz MS-05

The next crew to the International Space Station launched today on Soyuz MS-05. It was early morning here in the US but late evening at Baikonour; this created lighting conditions that allowed for some of the most beautiful Soyuz launch footage I have ever seen! It’s well worth checking the footage out since it so …
