Re: I miss our friendly chum Froggychum.

People come, people go.

But for some reason the asdf forums are like a harbour in the endless seas of the internet.

And as long as this safe harbor exists, people tend to wash up here again.

Re: The Daily Thread

Am I the only one who thinks that there might be humans and people who read the ASDF forums as guests without having registered accounts? Well, there are at least some. I don't always sign in when I read up on some posts for example. Most aren't "real" people though. But maybe there are some runawa...

Re: I HAVE FOUND IT!

Terminology is interesting. There are technically differences between emoticons, smilies, and emoji, but at the end of the day, it matters very little. I know you.

Re: Questions to everyone on ASDF (Please, read the original post.)

Speaking of D&D, how does one become a dungeon master? I adore D&D but none of my friends do, so my ability to practice/experience is very limited. Thoughts, suggestions? Word. I always wanted to play D&D but the lack of friends sure puts a stop to that. Which is kind of disappointing to be honest.

Re: Are 5 quotations too many for my signature?

...cus i live in the land of lakes... You were from Canada, right? Sorry to be blunt, but doesn't Finland have like 187.000something offical lakes while Canadas claim refers to 9% of it's landmass being freshwater? As for drowning. Not fun. In my Navy days we often had to interrupt our training for...

Re: catch up thread

Are you kidding me, are you saying we were on german television?! :lol: Yeah, pretty much. It wasn't for long, maybe 10 seconds or so, but you definitely were on german live television. The TV station no longer exists though, it had been TV station that focused on gaming and tech stuff, but got bou...

Re: catch up thread

Yeah times do change, don't they. I still remember how I found out about this site. Namely because someone on german tv wanted to show Googles "this site does not exist" redirect site or something and typed in asdf.com, assuming a site like that would not exist. That was when I was in 7th grade or s...

It's been extremely hot here as well, luckily it has dropped to ~22°C. It's been really bad, our houses are built for keeping the warm in, not out. :(
Yeah same. I live in a medieval style house built around 1560. And directly under the roof too, so you can assume where all the heat goes

Re: The Daily Thread

I really think Germany is slowly turning into a desert. Current temperatures are 104°F during the day, dropping down to 60°F at night or even lower. That and there is pretty much no green grass left, it's all dried up and I can only assume that the harvest is really going to suffer from the lack of ...

I refuse to grow up :mrgreen: But what if you need what you get from growing up?

Re: The Daily Thread

They can also autorotate to land without power, which is some mind-boggling stuff. Autorotation really is important when you consider that a helicopters lift-to-drag ratio is really low. When a planes engines fail, it usually can just glide to the next airport. That's also why fly routes usually al...

Re: The Daily Thread

That's not really true, they work similarly to aeroplanes, just with "wings" that rotate at high speeds to generate lift instead of moving the entire craft at high speeds. With a much higher tendency to vibrate themselves to complete destruction. Which I think is really interesting when you think a...

Yeah it's cool.

A whole lot of theoretical lectures about aerodynamics and how to land a helicopter when it's engines fail, but the wiring and coding is really fun.

Until you have to sign all the paperwork, haha :lol:

Been spending the last few weeks learning about microcontrollers and programming them. Smooth sailing so far. I guess my Geek score increased by at least 2. But let me tell you, becoming a helicopter electrician is really a whole lot of studying. On a side note: 2 months gone or smth. But I guess i...
