Automatically incrementing year number and release day predictor.
I think we should have a dedicated Astrologer for that on OF. It would be most fitting! :lol:

The oldest version on Orbithangar is 010503 which means that Orbiter is a Taurus.


There you go. :cheers:

But what is its ascendant? (And remember, Orbiter is left-handed barycentric and western astrology is geocentric with undetermined handedness)

A former girlfriend was deeply convinced of it, which made our relationship at times a bit conflicted. :lol:

Especially that I did not even know my ascendant was an anomaly.

I know enough about it to know that most modern astrologers suck badly. :lol: When I read a horoscope and don't like it, I just read another one.

BTW, as some kind of Request for comments: What about using Google Draco for compressing mesh data?

Ok, Wikipedia says:
"The ascendant, or rising sign, is the zodiacal sign and degree that was ascending on the eastern horizon at the specific time and location of an event."

So I determined the MJD of 2001-05-03, then went to Habana spaceport, which - as far as I remember - was the first spaceport in Orbiter.

The difficult part is at what time Orbiter came into existence? So I put the Delta Glider on the tarmac and looked East, until the sun came up over the horizon. I'd say it is a good time to start at sunrise. The zodiac sign on the horizon at this time was Aries, which should be Orbiter's ascendant, if the assumptions above are correct.
( MJD = 52032,45833 ) :)

Humans have the same problem if you think about it. ;)

Light a few boosters and say a few :hailprobe: and we'll be fine.

:threadjacked:

Ok ok, I'll stop now. :leaving:

Is anybody else experiencing that orbiter becomes unresponsive when you alt-tab to an excel sheet (ok, libreoffice to be honest) and edit a cell? This happens to me every time running windowed in either D3D9 or native...

Yes. Annoying, isn't?

Indeed, but I seriously wonder what could cause such behaviour... The process separation of Win10 is no slouch, this isn't the old Win95 days anymore where you could accidentally write into another process' memory. So what the devil is going on here?

I long had the suspicion that the Win10 scheduler changed significantly from the previous versions. The performance is certainly reduced, perhaps due to all the security measurements they had to include since Meltdown.
Most probably, these changes also come with all kinds of side effects, with the complete loss of input as described here being just one of them. Totally stalling a single core machine if there is as much as yet another update download going on is another one. Hanging a boot if certain USB devices are connected could possibly also be attributed to this scheduler rework.

Overall, I'm not impressed by Win10 at all. I want my 7 back.
