LOHAN Kickstarter push breaks TWELVE THOUSAND POUNDS

Vortex

As I write you only have 21 tankards left. How will you honour 25 of the new £120 "collection in person" tankards. I smell a rat.

Our LOHAN spaceplane ballocket Kickstarter climbs through £8000

Just done a "drive by" on Google Maps and I have to say your "attend the launch in person" package does not seem too compelling. Chief concern is that there does not appear to be a source of beer within a 20 mile radius of the spaceport. In fact the closest you can get the Google pegman to the spaceport seems to be about 10 miles away where the road stops at a cattle grid. You'd better validate this place really exists before handing over any dosh. Roswell is not far away and the whole thing could be an elaborate hoax.

LOHAN Kickstarter bid IS GO: Back our Vulture 2 spaceplane launch

Vortex

Starting price too low?

Entry point should be a tenner, IMO.

Also I rather fancy an engraved tankard. How about some kind of *multisave* (2 for £60 maybe), so you can toast progress with a friend. You could call it "A nice pair of jugs".

Wunderbra!

Is B-64 going to circumnavigate the earth forever, or is there some kind of BRASTRAP technology to somehow permit recovery of the "gubbins"? If not, you missed a technology licensing opportunity.

Cupholder?

I see Playmonaut appears to be holding a coffee. Will there be a cupholder? Spilt drinks could lead to further servo issues.

C'mon Lester, don't tease us with mere glimpses of the new paint job. Are you embarrassed about a scratch or something?

Our magnificent Vulture 2 spaceplane: Intimate snaps

Vortex

Have you printed any spare parts?

Seems to me that the probability of inadvertent damage during flight testing is non-zero. You planning to have some backup bits?

El Reg Playmonaut soars to 113,000ft

Thanks for the Saturday entertainment. I should imagine the Playmonout's arse was "winking" for much of the descent. Was CHAV actually intended to have an autonomous phase?

Hey Lester...and chance of a rerun of the old tee shirt? I'd buy one. Can Cash 'n Carrion reopen on eBay?

I'll be back.

15 years ago I moved from Apple to W95. Despite being a fully paid up anorak I have experienced immeasurable hassle and frustration ever since

I recently purchased my daughter a high end iMac (a necessity in her "world") and it has been an absolute revelation. My current Windows machine will be my last. Twice the price, but 0.25 x the aggravation works for me.
