Re: James Webb Space Telescope

Motor moves are very short -- each move is less than ten seconds. The motors' slowest speed is about 1.5 steps/second. I *think* they run the motors at around 100+ steps/second. There are two types...

Re: James Webb Space Telescope

Its the false dramatics of "The mirror motors move slower than grass grows!" and annoys me because its not true. I think Including idle time when calculating the average speed of a motor is...

Re: Do you have a will?

We didn't have one for a long time. A few years ago, we realized we needed a will. We have a child. My mother-in-law is retired, with no savings, and lives off her social security. Both would have...

Re: The Official Travel Discussion Thread

A little bit of a rant. I'm researching a spring break vacation to Los Cabos right now and and am getting really annoyed by fake resort websites. Shady online travel agencies are creating websites...

Re: James Webb Space Telescope

:lol:

All of the vendors are proud to have their hardware on JWST. So I'm sure that when JWST calls, they'll do whatever they can to help.

They have finished moving all of the mirrors from...

Re: Winter 2022!

End-of-driveway snow sucks! It is heavy, compact and must be dealt with or it will refreeze into a semi-solid mass. Also, because there's so much of it, I quickly run out of space at the bottom/side...

Re: Winter 2022!

It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. A lot of the snow melted, leaving about 1/2"of slush - thanks to rain and unusually warm overnight temperatures. Not fun to shovel because that shit is...

Re: Make me hungry! What's for dinner?

My wife is under the weather because of the COVID booster, so I'm cooking one of those bags of frozen pasta. :wacko:
At least I have a nice Chianti to wash it down. I...

Re: Itís the beginning of the end of COVID-19!!! Vaccines are here and Iím getting mine in a few days.

My wife got the booster yesterday. She made sure it was Pfizer, not Moderna, because she was worried about the side effects from the Moderna. She's having a mild-to-moderate reaction: sore arm, some...

Re: This thread will make you feel OLD

Then getting into the 80's... We finally had cable, but no premium channels. When we changed the cable-box channel to one of the premiums, we'd often get 1-2 seconds of video before it cut out. Cue...

Re: This thread will make you feel OLD

When I was a kid I remember one time I happened to wake up in the middle of the night. Everyone else was asleep. So I snuck downstairs to see what forbidden shows were on TV. I think most of the...

Re: James Webb Space Telescope

It's been about a week, so I thought I'd post an update.

They're currently moving the mirrors from their stowed/launch position to be close to their expected final position. It's a slow and...

Re: You think your boss is bad?

Exactly. They're going to go over his books with a fine-toothed comb, and be further up his ass than his proctologist.

Right after making that second edit, around 2pm, it dropped on me like a ton of tricks. Splitting headache, nausea, weakness, aching muscles, really bad chills and suddenly incredibly sleepy -- I...

Re: Jenna Jameson is preggers

I'm not going to celebrate her getting sick, but her anti-vaxx views dampen the sympathy I would otherwise have had for her.

Re: Itís the beginning of the end of COVID-19!!! Vaccines are here and Iím getting mine in a few days.

Got my booster shot last night. I feel a little cruddy this morning. I went to bed later than planned so I don't know how much is from the vaccine vs not enough sleep. As expected, both arms are a...
