you keep mistaking my popping your pie in the sky bubbles for ranting
Considering that I don't give a shit either way about rocket labs and have barely heard of them there is clearly no mistake. Are you going to keep on attempting pathetic bullying or are you going to back up or abandon your words above? Let's hear something that actually justifies your rubbishing of my mostly forgotten classes in orbital mechanics. Are you going to answer or do I just file you under clueless windbag who knows fuckall about the topic and just likes to verbally attack strangers?
As should be obvious by now I'm only on this thread to get some clarification of this statement:
The claimed advantages of launching "deep in the Southern Hemisphere" are bunk.
You've given me nothing to support that. I didn't mention the RL's Electron - you did as an avoidance tactic.
Are you someone who is prepared to back up their statements or are you just a fool shouting into the darkness attacking anyone who asks the meaning of what you are shouting about?
"the only bit of the question that actually matters"
Since I'm the one that asked the question what is wrong with that? I'm not dragging you away from some sort of prepared script, I'm asking you what you meant by the quoted words above.
If the system knows it has swap it will eventually use it unless you tell it not to.
After the fact one was called a "cult". The other still has some sort of functioning assembly of people now the monster than founded it is dead so not yet.
(linux's swap partition is bonkers).
It's so you can put it on a different hard disk than the one you want quick access to.
And a swap file is very easy and has even been an option on install with most distros for close to a decade. Fedora Core 1 had that option FFS, now we are up to Fedora 20+.
That enables swap - it doesn't mean it'll ever be used
Then you remove the other swap.
What obviously happened is that you got your panties in a bunch when you saw that metro screen and weird start button
And then found the controls were hidden off the side of a screen on a touchscreen - yes - unbearable and I had to hand it back before the urge to smash it took over.
why NASA is relying on private companies to build the next-generation spacecraft
Politics. Same reason Skylab was thrown away when there were enough working bits of Saturn V to keep it up there. The people who didn't want the ISS in the first place are calling the shots.
Forgive my cynicism since a founder of one very large group of that type near me has been revealed as being a pedophile on an industrial scale, setting up his group is such a way that he could get away with it on hundreds of occasions, and another group concentrated all of the wealth of it's members into the hands of one of the founders before they ended up in jail for it. Sometimes it's just about money and power with no room for Jesus.
As I repeatedly have been asking, since you've made a broad technical assertion lets have a broad technical answer without hiding behind likes, dislikes, nationalities or restricting to specific types of rockets a company (which I haven't even heard of before) has used in the past when neither of us have a clue what they are going to be using in the future. They may be completely and utterly fucking useless but the site choice may have been recommended by someone who is not - so why not such a site?
If you can't do anything more than emotional waffling and a one-dimensional model with nothing but equatorial orbits, that's fine, we'll know where we stand and I'll know I should stop being lazy and dig out the old course notes and look up half remembered stuff about Baykonur instead of listening to you.
If you can't answer it will explain why you got so fucking aggressive and evasive when I asked a simple question expecting a simple answer or an admission that you didn't know either. What's it to be? More stupid bullying bullshit I'm not going to fall for or some reality? I don't "win" if you don't know because I don't know either so there is nothing to lose by being truthful, I'm not playing some childish game here. Can you please try to act in a way so you can say the same?
That's rich coming from someone attempting to justify NZ as a launch site
Asking a question "why N.Z.?" pondering possibilities and asking if it makes sense is NOT "attempting to justify".
Please calm down and do something more practical than an emotional rant and attempting to pick a fight.
Sit down, imagine that RL was an Argentinian company
OK then, if they were an Argentinian company, sitting on a lot of cash for some reason, with a big rocket, let's say a Russian one proven to actually work, and you had no reason to pick a fight over them would launching from that far south make sense? Is that playing your game enough for you to stop avoiding the only bit of the question that actually matters?
I suppose a better example is a video clip I saw of some visiting US fundamentalists disrupting an Easter procession in St. Petersberg Russia - blocking the way of people carrying statues of Jesus and yelling "turn to Jesus" as if they didn't know it was an Easter procession - how insane is that? It was probably about idols which is where we come full circle back to the Moslem extremists demolishing old Islamic art.
