Elon Musk: Future Round-Trip To Mars Could Cost Under $500,000

spaceplanesfan Re:I think musk lost his marbles (238 comments)

No, dragon is NOT yet human rated, Heck it just flew once,and that dragon didn't even had the equipment to berth with the station, lets alone give humans the life support.
Cheese is a lot easier to launch that a human, trust me.

Don't get me wrong, Musk is on the right track. His dragon sure will became soon man rated, he will eventually launch sats.
I just want to note that I think he is overly optimistic, taking all the time about how he will launch a falcon 9 every 3 months, about mars, re-usability, etc, and yet, until now he just can launch just one rocket per year,

On the other hand, he has plenty of enemies. I even witnessed one myself. Many peoples that work for pork that nasa provides are really upset by his work, and try to spread the FUD about how unsafe his rocket is and stuff like that.
So I guess here really plays it safe.

So go SpaceX, go and just suceed.

BTW, it looks like you (slashdot readers) were right when you laughed about Skylon
I actually registered here on slashdot to express my opinion about it.
Yet almost year passed since their 'precooler' test supposed to start, and its not done yet.
They indeed probably just blow dust into investor's eyes.

Elon Musk: Future Round-Trip To Mars Could Cost Under $500,000

spaceplanesfan I think musk lost his marbles (238 comments)

Did he launch them in falcon 9 last time?
I mean spaceX is awesome, but he really should have more realistic look on things.
Please first make a human rated space capsule, and actually start launching stuff from its long manifest,
then we will talk mars

Rockbox Developers Talk Open Source Firmware

spaceplanesfan Re:MP3 Players... (179 comments)

I have Fuze+. Apart from the fact that it does play ogg, its crap overpriced player.
Not only it has over sensitive touchpad that reacts to every finger movement while you hold that damn thing,
but it also buggy (crashed many times),
Its interface also lags a lot.

It barely recognizes IDv3 tags (I had to convert all of my MP3 collection to use very specific version of them to make it see them).
It plays videos only is very specific format for which you have to download their crappy video converter.
Battery life is decent, but its much lower that 24 hour, they claim. It works for about 6 hours with screen turned off.

And that is exactly what the troll wants.

i-Device Manufacturing Unprofitable To China

spaceplanesfan Re:Why only iDevices? (320 comments)

Haven't you figured it out?

Mentioning iAnything causes Nerd Rage.

Nerd Rage brings page views. Lots and lots of them.

Page views bring profit!

Who cares if the summaries are misleading or don't tell the whole story?

You mean iNerd, don't you?

Sony, Universal and Fox Caught Pirating Through BitTorrent

spaceplanesfan Re:So they are uploading the movie? (284 comments)

True. But point is that media companies can trivially know the IP and time it was used to download/upload.
And yes most peoples upload, 'cause its too slow otherwise.
Then you are one subpoena away from being IDed.
Yes, I know that currently not much was done against torrent users since there are just too much of them, but that slowly changes.
Besides as a Linux user that also doesn't like much ether music nor movies, I don't have any reason to pirate anything.
