    Mohamed Gattis would be a better fit.

    Why is that information you felt you needed to share on here?

    Most Powerful Rocket Engine

    Hmm... I'd wager that the AJ-260 would be the most powerful rocket engine ever fired... and that was a half-length unit.

    RD-170 had 4 combustion chambers, RD-180 is as same as RD-170 but has 2 combustion chambers and RD-190 has one.

    AFAIR, the RD-170 was more power full than the F-1, but it used four small thrust chambers fed by the same turbopump, instead of one large thrust chamber.

    The Saturn V's F-1 engine is the most powerful LIQUID-FUELED engine in the world, while the Shuttle SRBs are the most powerful SOLID-FUELED engines.

    In addition, the Falcon 9's Merlin 1D, Proton-K's RD-253, and the N1's NK-33 engines are quite powerful as well. They have the highest specific impulses, and thrust-to-weight ratios of any Earth-launchable engine in the world

    The Cruiser goes to Disney World

    After all this time I finally remembered to update something. BB was watching the food blogger channel again and it keyed a memory.

    If you have the time, it may be worth stopping by guest services, and I'll tell you why. If it's your first visit to the Mouse Empire, or you are celebrating something (wedding, birthday, anniversary, whatever), you can get a button/pin to wear on your shirt. We'd gotten BB a "First Visit" button at Epcot. BB wore it for the rest of the trip. It was a quick and easy souvenir that only cost about 90 seconds in the guest services queue. Also, with the pin, you might get some individual attention by one of the cast members.

    Also, those hard working cast members are as human as the guests. You paid for entrance to the parks, and being cordial costs nothing extra. Example: After the wife, kiddo, and boyfriend of kiddo abandoned BB and me in the Magic Kingdom, we followed our noses to the pretzel kiosk. I had on a shirt I'd gotten from New Orleans years ago; as it happened, the cast members managing the pretzels were from NOLA and Metairie. It was slow at the kiosk and we chatted for several minutes. They asked if I liked NOLA and I responded with my love for the food and music, and how I thought the best jazz clubs were uptown (despite the French Quarter having more exposure). I suppose they agreed. The very nice lady said that Mickey was picking up the tab for the snacks and BB and I enjoyed pretzels and lemonade.

    Later, at the Animal Kingdom. Flame Tree BBQ. BB and I had made our order and were waiting at the counter. One of the cast members noticed BB's pin and asks if she's having a good time, she said yeas, and told him how much Expedition Everest scared her (awesome coaster btw). He laughed and said she was very brave and welcomed her to the Animal Kingdom. A few minutes later, he checked to see about our order as he thought we'd been waiting too long for our food. After some small talk, our food was delivered, along with some key lime cupcakes with a comment about how well behaved and patient BB was waiting for our meal.

    Last night at the resort: Wife said BB had gotten a cupcake from a cast member at the restaurant just for being awesome.

    So, BB got some free stuff. Once without a pin, twice (that I'm aware of) with a pin. All unexpected. After watching some of the youtube blogs, this is something that cast members do on a regular enough basis, enough to be a unexpected surprise), but not often enough to where people should feel entitled to a freebie.

    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.

    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.

    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.
