I sincerely hope not. The poor guy's working his way through 140 of 'em, by hand.

Re: Re: Excellent beerworthy news
Yup, our Stateside readers were most annoyed.
Re: Excellent beerworthy news
Still got a nuclear keyring myself. No ideas what the half life is, but it's probably a long-term heirloom item.
Re: Re: Bryndza
A very kind offer, but would the stuff survive the post without anti-terrorist sniffer dog attention?
Yup, we 'd love to try this with some proper Bryndza. Sadly, that looks a remote prospect.
Re: Acceptable Receptacle
I believe our Playmonaut may be an ale and mead man.
It's a very tempting idea.
Still waiting on the FAA. Sigh.
Re: old news?
First I heard of it was today. You'll excuse us for not having a entire world's media monitoring team working 24/7.
Re: Re: Morcilla de Burgos
Yes, I've had that. Seems entirely plausible for the coating.
Morcilla de Burgos
As a lifelong black pudding fan, I thought Blighty's could never be bettered. However, try morcilla de Burgos, with rice:
Re: Slow news day?
Yes. Now bugger off.
When you think of another way, let us know.
Re: Well done that man!
Consider me annoyed. I'm quaffing a proper PG Tips from mine as we speak.
Just written a summary piece, should be up shortly. Initial results excellent.
Re: Down at about 17:30Z
Good job by Edge. Results forthcoming...
Re: Re: Enclosure insulation
The possible overheating issue is exactly what we're keeping an eye out for. The BEC is our main concern - it gets pretty warm on the ground when everything's fired up.
They're using their own tracking gear. This is a test of our servos and batteries only.
Re: Re Lester Haines
I'd agree with the burly, but I am most certainly not bald.

I give you one pipe: http://www.welt.de/wirtschaft/article133149781/Briten-schicken-gedruckte-Rakete-in-Stratosphaere.html
Re: Other coverage:
And here too: http://www.welt.de/wirtschaft/article133149781/Briten-schicken-gedruckte-Rakete-in-Stratosphaere.html
We get the consumables in the States, for that very reason.
I saw summat about that yesterday. We may have to wait outside the stage door wearing LOHAN t-shirts.
Re: Entry to USA
Yeah, we've got a team on standby.
Tis true: http://www.theregister.co.uk/2013/12/31/paper_plane_flight/
Still pending word from the FAA...
Re: Re: Anyone else having problems with the "Response Needed" email?
No, we haven't sent all suerveys out yet. We're still working through the first replies. Bear with us...
Re: Anyone else having problems with the "Response Needed" email?
No idea. We've had a rack of replies this morning to the "surveys" as they call them. I haven't heard of anyone else having trouble.
Re: Welcome to Las Cruces!
Arrrgh, buckaroo, see ye there...
We are indeed worried about overheating, especially the BEC. The flight test will show what's what.
Yes, the "advanced" are not the same beast.
Re: Sufficient lift?
The weight is within parameters, so yup, there's enough lift.
We are indeed filming the whole thing.
Re: Re: Question
Aha. Well, you lot are to blame for the mottos ;-) Thanks for chipping in with wonga, btw, much appreciated.
Re: Re: Less than £1800 to go...
My lips are sealed.
Re: Re: Less than £1800 to go...
Go for it - free the tankard for someone with less economic might.
Re: Less than £1800 to go...
It is exciting. Some one even upped their pledge and left a stray tankard available...
Re: The tankards have proved particularly popular,
Bit unfair on those who jumped in early to add extra ones now. I too am in eager anticipation of supping from my tankard.
Re: When are the tankards shipping please?
Yup, if we don't hit our target, there are no tankards for anyone. There's a sample in production as we speak, lovingly hewn from the living glass...
Re: Re: Question
Nice try ;-)
Just send us a message on Kickstarter requesting anonymity. That way, you're sorted. We'll have to do the roll of honour manually, so there's no automated process. Better to use a pseudonym on Kickstarter, just to be sure.
Btw, since I know who you are, and you have been so rude about our logo, I'm going to send you a t-shirt and some stickers. So there.
Re: Just a thought
Yes, we only have around 30 seconds to get the shots before a social services SWAT team moves in.
Re: only my opinion
Well, I've been sitting in the shed for the past four hours testing the new Vulture 2 battery rig. Break for tea and a bacon sarnie, naturally.
Re: What happens in case of delays?
I'm sure we could work something out. The whole thing works on the principal of maximum flexibility, since there are many factors which can cause delays.
Re: LOHAN's PANTS worth 3K Already?
I think PANTS has proved vital in the tin-rattling. Beers all round indeed. Cheers.
Re: Re: The whole thing
Oh do stop moaning. The extra batteries are 120g, and the weight is within the original design parameters by a margin. In fact, I'll tell you: It's 3050g, excluding the Cesaroni reload.
We've done the calcs, and the aircraft will exit the rod like the proverbial muck off a shovel. I thank you.
You see? A cunning non-disclosure plan.
By simply not telling them exactly where the balloon launch is. It's not a question of depriving people of the opportunity - it's a complicated and likely stressful operation, and then there's the rocket motor hazard. It's really not a good idea to have folks milling about.
In any case, live streaming on the interwebs should be entertainment enough.
So, we let unlimited people roll up, and we've got a kick-arse rocket motor in the Vulture which has to be armed on the ground, and there's no one on site to stop people wandering about....
What could possibly go wrong?
