I start by being reasonable. That includes giving them enough time and opportunities to understand the problem, and then work on a fix. I also don't expect commercial products to be compatible with beta releases. How in the world can they even provide support for something that is under development?
Nice to see cooperation
Ummm, do you have anything like facts?
What, no comments about the flat earth?
Actually, the reason for the Drone ship is that some cargoes are launched higher and faster than others, and the booster stage just can't get back to land based on the launch profile
ummm, rocket fuel. Hydrogen & Oxygen. Two extremely common elements, available for (almost) free. Cost of it is energy to split them apart. And it doesn't require huge amounts of rocket fuel to land, that first stage is mostly empty (most of the fuel got burned during liftoff). Overall, a win since they don't need to design, build & lift parachutes, which, for somethat that size and weight, would weigh more than the fuel used.

Gaah! I started to read that link, but what a load of hogwash.
Fully recovered, no restrictions on anything. I was out of work for 4 weeks, and took a few more weeks to fully recover.
Interesting sidenote: I went in for a post-donation checkup, and my doctor felt a very small lump in my throat. it was checked out, and turned out to be a very early thyroid cancer. I had surgery on 2/29 to remove my thyroid, and have fully recovered from that. The tumor was extremely small, would not have been found except for the kidney donation. I have to be on thyroid medication for life, but I can live with that.
So, looking at it, I can say that donating a kidney saved two lives: the recipient and my own.
This doesn't make sense. Why not increase the number of medical schools to increase the supply of good doctors?
Last June I donated one of my kidneys to someone I didn't know. It saved his life.
Currently, there are over 93,000 people on the kidney transplant waiting list. The wait for a deceased donor could be 5 years, and in some states, it is closer to 10 years. Patients are prioritized by how long they’ve been on the waiting list, their blood type, immune system activity and other factors. 80% of the people on the waiting list are on kidney dialysis. The longer a person is on dialysis and has to wait for a transplant, the short and long term success rates are negatively affected. On average, receiving a kidney transplant can double someone’s life expectancy.
Each day, 18 Americans die waiting for an organ transplant.
Please consider donating your kidneys after death, it can save lives. Better yet, consider doing a living donation such as what I did. All medical costs are covered by the recipient's insurance company. The results after a living donation are much better than after a post-mortum donation.
While the risks are not zero, they are about the lowest you can expect for any major surgery you can undergo as a donor
