Re: Informative article

I know, it was an enlightening moment when I arranged them all for the photo.

Re: Close, but not quite

As I said, we just used the supplied reader recipe, but yes, if I did it again I'd have the gravy runnier.

Re: "........ consider how to translate 0.15625ml to a dry measure of furikake"

Fair enough, but we'll have to consider the furikake meniscus first...

Re: Re: I'll take these with 0.3125ml of salt

Yup. Much used in the Haines household in the "tad more milk in that tea, ta" context.

Norks execute underperforming terrapin farm manager

Re: Re: Putting aside the absurdity of the punishment...

Well, they eat dog in NK as well, plus they have in the past dabbled in giant rabbit: http://www.theregister.co.uk/2007/04/08/commies_ate_my_rabbits/

So I suppose "Nork ragout of chien and énorme lapin a la Kim Jong-un" might be in order. The "a la Kim Jong-un" bit refers to the terrapin salsa used to spice the dish. Hmmmm....

Oil & gas? Pah. We’ve got a MASSIVE 3D printer, beams Dubai

Re: First??

I think they're claiming it on the grounds that everything in the building is 3D printed as well. Whether that includes the toilet paper remains to be seen.

PRATCHETT chats to Oz from 31,000m above Planet Earth

Re: Re: Looks like you had great weather for it!

Well, it's not really a safety switch, more an "arm" button. Disabling it saves us having to go up to 15,000m, for example, if the Pixhawk resets. That said, I would indeed never fly LOHAN Air myself, and leave it to our plucky Playmonaut.

Re: Looks like you had great weather for it!

Sadly, the only LOHAN team member who has a tankard is me, and that's because I had to approve it. We'll rectify this outrageous oversight when the time comes...

LOHAN'S PRATCHETT mission set to soar Saturday

Lester Haines
(Written by Reg staff) Silver badge

Re: Re: I probably missed it..but..

Correct. The Pixhawk takes care of the pitch/roll attitude, using the two canards independently.

Re: I probably missed it..but..

Each canard has to have an individual servo, which is connected via pushrod: http://www.theregister.co.uk/2014/06/20/vulture_canard_woes/?page=2

The wingtip rudders could conceivably operate off of single servo, but the connections would be a nightmare. There's a single servo mounted in each wing, connected to its respective rudder by a Gold-N-Rod system.

Re: Beer from a straight glass? Heresy!

Well, I think we're done with beer glasses, but we have been considering a LOHAN logo whiskey tumbler or suchlike, equally suited to sinistrals and dextrals.

LOHAN's final test flight set to honour PRATCHETT

Re: Re: 4 years

Well, we're just taking advantage of the delay to do extra work in the air. We've already tested the avionics once at altitude, but a second run will give extra peace of mind.

Re: Re: 4 years

That's about the size of it. We also have the issue of not being able to get the rocket motor reload in Europe, or in Australia for that matter (we looked into this a while back).

Actually that's the movie where the Brits win the war in the Pacific. It's our revenge for "U-571".

Tankard saga

We had to get some new tankards knocked up - which took a while, as did working out who hadn't received their receptacle - and they're being dispatched by our C'n'C fulfilment outfit. You are on the list, so hopefully (and finally)...

Tomorrow, I'm going to follow suit, but replace your fish with more bacon. I'll have the chips, though, with a nice pork chop as well.
