I am sorry, Thlaylie. Don't you remember me from the Caitian threads where we both expressed our appreciation of Larry Niven and the contributions he made to Star Trek? The post nasal drip comment was a heavy handed attempt at comedy nothing more. I figured you would get it because, as far as I know, no one uses post nasal drip as an insult. Again forgive me I will be more cautious in the future.

It does not rotate because the experiments performed there are zero gravity experiments. Rotation would impart artificial gravity and ruin the desired results.

Seems they are just lubbing the crap out of everything to prevent VC.

Didn't stop the idiots from installing and misprogramming a timer on the solar panel array of the 1rst Mars rovers.
I did not hear about the malfunctioning solar panel array. Far as I know both rovers performed well past their predicted run times.

Now Star Dust is a good example of a mistake. Star Dust's error was caused when someone failed to convert from metric to United States Customary Units. That's why it's chute did not deploy after re-entry.

I know the rest of the world uses metric and Americans are considered backwards for sticking with a variation of English Units but damn it fractions are more accurate. In English Units a third of something is always a third of something. In metrics, because they are based in units of ten and the French demanded a unit of measure devoid of fractions after the French Revolutionary War, a third is .3333333333333333333ad infinum.

Case in point in a recent documentary I watched a scientist give the degree of the coldest temperature that mankind can generate with laser assisted evaporative cooling. She used the metric system and at the end of the decimal she closed with a fraction. Seriously, to make the Metric system accurate enough the lady employed a hybrid number.

Of course I could be wrong in all this, everything any American does lately seems to be wrong in the rest of the worlds eyes, but the French Revolution giving birth to the Metric System is what I was taught and that lady in the documentary is how I remember it. So blame my college algebra instructor and blame that scientist then tell me the other story.

Sorry, Early morning and all that.

I also suffer from severe sinus problems so might be touchy there.

I am also recovering from a Venwar attack if that helps.

Were you the one that answered my Kzin with a perfect Kzin answer about me being nameless?

That was fun RP and your response was perfect Kzin.

To be honset there was no way for me to know that you have issues with your sinuses. I would not have stooped so low had I known.

I have not played my Adies in some time, leveling my alts you see. So I have no idea what a Venwar was. I thought maybe it was a version of the flu or a bad seasonal alergy. I punched "Venwar Attack" into a goggle search. Low and behold at the top of the list is a link to the "Amusing pVp chat of the week! " thread. Sounds like Venwar is amusing in the least. LOL

All of our contact has been on the forums and I do not RP so it had to be someone else who called you "Nameless." Glad to hear you had fun though.

It wasn't the solar array on the Rover that malfunctioned,

It was the idiot engineer who felt there should be a timer on the solar array and of course his moroness programmed it wrong. He mixed up winter and summer on Mars. (Duh)

So not only did he waste payload space and weight, but he screwed up the machine as well that's still frozen in place up there.

The current head of NASA almost flipped one of the Rovers because he forgot it takes time for the radio waves to get there an he was "drivin the rover der."

I didn't mean RP in a separate venu, I meant I talked like a Kzin here and someone responded perfectly.

Awesome that Venny has made it to Google!
