Digital Impact Limitation for Deciduous Obstacles
We invite readers to raise a glass or two today to autopilot wrangler Linus Penzlien, who touched down in Spain yesterday afternoon ahead of an intensive week of Vulture 2 spaceplane Pixhawk custom parameter programming and testing. And here is the man himself meeting local lass Ruperta this morning ahead of an intensive …
I don't mean to be critical but
As far as I can tell the earliest LOHAN proposals date from 2011. Couldn't you get a real lander on the moon in this sort of timeframe?
Truss In Tree Will Always Necessitate Krane. :(
It's not just LOHAN
Trees attract kites too. I used to work in a kite shop and saw a number of mangled kites on a regular basis.
Re: It's not just LOHAN
I am sure that something from Peanuts is applicable here:

After it fails to spot something and gets updated, it can be called

Not necessarily on a LOHAN theme...

As my last attempt at an acronym resulted with being mentioned in despatches for rudeness I offer

Presumably Ruperta converts everything into assembly language?

LINUS Penzlien ?
Just to be 100% clear his name is NOT Linux.

I wouldn't have hoped that any modern flying vehicle would be equipped with a

Sorry, I know it's polite, but I'm in work...
In the spirit of sowing confusion about El Reg's spaceplane projects...

Not very racy, I know.

Yes, I know the E and S are the wrong way around. It's Monday, and I'm still tired.
Arboreal Recognition and System for Evasion just doesn't quite work.
VinceH I think we got hit by the same inspiration particle!
> VinceH I think we got hit by the same inspiration particle!
Clearly some form of particle cloning going on, because it seems to be bouncing around here as well!
However, in proper abbreviation creation mode I reverse the last two words:
Arboreal Recognition System for Evasion.
Arboreal Recognition System for Evasion does though...
As long as we know our ARSE from our ELBOW
Yes, I know the E and S are the wrong way around.

...I do hope the ELBOW, Evasion of Large Body Of Water hasn't been forgotten.
