The Terminator always had to go through naked. I usually just wear my shorts and t-shirt for warmer weather or jeans if it is cooler. I can say I have never jumped through a time/space portal into a winter environment. I do my time travel in southern California like the original Terminator.

All my time travel has been pseudo time travel, ie recording a live event and watching it at my convenience at a later time. Have not had any luck with future events.

As far as space travel, it has been limited to date to travel by normal physical methods, ie, walking, car, planes, boats, trains, busses, etc. and have not actually left this continent let alone planet.

Have fallen asleep a few times and felt like I did some sort of time/space travel, but as it turned out was just the normal disorientation that happens sometimes when waking from sleep.

Well, the best is to ride a unicorn through the time/space hole and exit looking like George Clooney. The bad news is Bigfoot chases me back through and I am back to reality.

Probably. I think the only other possible explanation is space aliens. Yep. Unicorns or space critters.

Morning all.

Back in the olden days when I was single and sowing my wild oats and praying for crop failure with the local ladies I spent the night with a certain female. In the morning I woke up and looked around in her bedroom and counted over 40 unicorn figurines or drawings. So being suave and debonair (or Mr. obvious) I commented that she must really love unicorns. The rest of the apartment was filled with them as well. Lets just say she was fun, but a little weird and was on my catch and release program.

Woohoo! Made it back from the on-campus meeting and the 30 minute meeting only took 3 hour of my time. At least was told I was doing well and more importantly didn't get any new projects.

So more straight lines? I assume supports are straight.

how did you guess? The best part about the whole thing is that I am no a piper and I do these drawings as monkey see monkey do. You sketch it I draw exactly what you put on paper no fixing anything. Not my sandbox to play in.

David is doing the supports, not the pipes according to the post.

I ordered yet another computer. And finally a powerful video card for my main computer here. It has the longest name I have ever seen.

EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti SC Black Edition GAMING, 11GB GDDR5X, iCX Cooler & LED, Optimized Airflow Design, Interlaced Pin Fin Graphics Card 11G-P4-6393-KR

I will not be playing a single game on it as usual. It will make my mapping program run a ton faster. I have been getting by with just the on-board video card with no CUDA cores. Now It will be much faster. We have one new project that is flown twice a week if weather is good enough to fly. It does not matter if it is cloudy, overcast or sunny, get it flown. They want data back in short time and I can churn that out faster with the video card.

The new computer goes to my partners house and will be just a slave unit for distributed processing. Maybe someday we can be done buying expensive electronic gear and just make money.

Yea, ever since Issac Newton invented gravity supports have been complex. I would bet that the support for a pipe full of water is more robust than one full of a gas. But what do I know about it.
