Launch my own satellite

I've imagined this for a while. How much would it cost to throw a raspberry pi into geocentric orbit? Lets say I want to use it to communicate. I guess it would need a few things...a power supply, a transmitter...what else? How much thrust would be required to get it up there? Does it need some sort...

Re: Song Identification!

I think this was a fairly mainstream song, but my remembrance of it is very poor. It had a mellencampy vibe to it, probably late 80s early 90s, and the chorus, vaguely, is: something in the (schoolyard?,) I'm talkin bout some something (rhymes with schoolyard I'm talkin bout youuuuuuu I'm talkin bou...

Re: Starcraft 2 : The Dune II Clone

It's hardly worth comparing the two. Thors do neat splash against clumped, light targets. Goliaths have much better DPS against individual targets. Although, I loved the goliaths with the upgrade that let them use both sets of weapons at once in the campaign. Damn they were good. How I wish you cou...

If a law is authorized by the 16th amendment, then any earlier parts of the constitution (eg. the 5th amendment) can't be used to void it.

Re: Gaming in Linux

Mainly (as far as I know and I could be very wrong) because Microsoft own DirectX (which a lot of, if not most games use). The amount of time it would take to rework a game to use OpenGL would not be worth it for the tiny market share that is Linux. I'm probably wrong, but that's my understanding o...

Sounds like the zerg player got a deal in terms of resources, but not build time. Well, if the zerg player can harvest 11500 minerals in the time the Terran player can harvest ~6080 minerals. The difference in build time is much more favourable than that. (Hatch + Queen = average of 1 larva per 6 s...

It takes approximately 370 zerglings to kill 14 thors and 10 scvs with max upgrades on both sides. Only a dozen or so zerglings survive. Very effective? Realistic numbers of zerglings melt before they do any damage. The time they buy for other units doesn't outweigh the lack of damage done. Thors s...
