    Pilot Astronaut Flight Academy - PAFA

    Cool concept. I dont know how useful a course on steep turns, turns around a point, and slow flight are gonna be for Orbiter, but the theory is always good I suppose. If you want feedback on aviation when you hit those subjects let me know.

    A very ambitious project and I wish you well, it will be a tremendous resource.

    Pilot Astronaut Flight Academy - PAFA

    Wow I really like this. I have perused some of what is available here and it is very useful. I REALLY like the structured format and lesson pans you are using. I look fowrward to seeing more as the course is completed and available. Going back now for more reading. Thanks!

    Default ISS

    Hey barrygolden,

    I was planning to start a project soon in attempting to combine all the ISS add-ons by Donamy and Thorton and put them into a single zip package that can be easily installed and work with no problem in Orbiter 2016. I haven't started yet and once I do (and if I can with permission from the authors), I won't know how long it will take.

    Linux + ZFS

    Well, and another problem came to light. It's, indeed, possible to a end-user to loose the GPL granted rights.

    It's not easy, but there're legal grounds on some countries (Germany, if I was informed right).

    This potentially renders the end-user high and dry.

    The Cruiser goes to Disney World

    Yeah If you're going to take a Disney vacation, Florida is the one to go to. Your best bet is actually to get one of their vacation packages. If you do it right, the only thing outside of the package itself you need to worry about is the plane ticket to Orlando, Disney will cover literally everything else!

    Wow, that was quite a bit more involved than the accidental visit i had.

    Haven't realized you can get an entire vacation centered around one of these parks. Given the size of ones in Florida compared to Paris one and there being kids involved i guess that's not too surprising.

    The Cruiser goes to Disney World

    A few things I forgot...

    The resort - one thing you get at the resort is a mug that you can use at the drink stations (at the resort, not at the parks). All you can drink, unlimited refills. After you check in and start wandering around, head towards the restaurant and you should see the mugs on display. Grab on and go through the line as if you were going to pay for it. Tell the cast member at the register that you are picking up you mug and need it activated. All too easy.

    The food again - There is a series of youtube videos by a group "Disney Food Blog". Lots of good information and you get to see what you're up against. When I said there was a lot of places to eat. Man I ain't joking. Also you can hit up their web site and get some information for printing out.

    After watching some of the videos, BB had her heart set on the "Rose Gold Mouse Ear Cupcakes". Which are supposed to be available at the main street bakery (not too far inside the park, follow your nose). BUT is being very close to St. Patricks Day, they didn't have them. She was disappointed but settled for the green frosting mouse ear cupcake. It must have been good, she didn't want to share and had frosting and chocolate on her nose, both cheeks and even managed to get some on here forehead. I'll be using that picture as a wallpaper for a while

    The next day at EPCOT after riding "Soaring" the group wanted to grab some breakfast at the grill (inside the same building). And as we approached the counter the first thing we saw was that coveted rose gold mouse ear cupcake. Seriously though it was all lit up and angels were singing as far as BB was concerned. It was delicious!
    So even if something it's available at the place where it's supposed to be, doesn't mean you might not find it elsewhere, just keep your eyes peeled.

    I missed my opportunity for the Cheshire Cat tail though. Next time Disney... Next time...

    Wow, I am kind of hungry after reading your blog.

    That's a nice plan. You must had a whale of time with your family there!

    Looks like I need to do some planning before visiting Orlando's Disneyland in the future. I have been to the one in Hong Kong when I was 10/11 (can't recall the exact age).

    Talk about trip planning. These days DIY-style homework is a must for many before they travel. I still remember looking up Google Maps and some transportation websites searching for routes to travel from my hostel here to the airport, the library and some shopping complexes in downtown Kuala Lumpur. It might be a hassle having to spend hours looking for the most time-saving and efficient way of travelling, but when you arrive at the destination and get to do what you want, the hard work pays off and it all worth it.

    (Will certainly PM you in the future before going to Orlando's Disneyland. )

    Time for dinner!

    If you forgot when you came from, that's your problem.
    If your children don't know where they came from, that's your problem.

    After antibiotics, I forgot how a simple scratch can be fatal.
    Because of flushing toilets and sewers, I forgot to die of dysentry and cholera.

    Glad you liked it.
    Still, it's mainly a dialogue of the evolution of the universe. And also of the role of the prime monitor in the evolution of life in the universe. And I think I made it a bit too dense with technical details...
