Nothing to say but to acknowledge an excellent headline.

"This was an aircraft that flew so high, at 60,000 feet, you could see the curvature of the Earth, and so fast that the airframe stretched, gaining between 15.24 and 25.4cm (6-10 inches) during flight thanks to the extreme pressures."
Given the difference between sea level and space is only 14psi, it was the aerodynamic heating that made the thing expand, not the pressure. See also SR71, which leaks fluids until it heats up.
Hi all, not strictly work but.....
My sisters USB hard drive where she keeps all of her photos (with no backups!) from the last umpteen years has gone tits up. She's tried all the normal bits of software (Recuva etc) but without delving into the realms of the linux boot discs etc she needs to find a firm of data recovery people. (I could but i'm not keen to cock it up and be responsible for her losing her data - given the value of it to her)
Does anyone have any suggestions of data recovery firms - i'm loathed to let her take it into PC world!
Could you have the string to the ballon cut at a predetermined point (either timed, or by pressure - bladder expands an closes a pair of scissors or something!)? Then have a 5 second delay for the ballon to shoot off by itself, and then launch?
Obviously you'd need to shape / weight the payload so that it fell in a stable way? How about an inverted cone of card with a weight in the end?
The 3 porn filter doesn't just 'think of the children' it suggests a range of 3 provided smut that you may want to view instead. Idiots.
FYI 3 are not au faux with the concept of IP address and WWW address being equivlent - you can access B3Ta using it's IP 22.214.171.124 for example
I've got a clone, it does a better job than the real thing. They're quite popular with mtbing folk, and it's always amusing to compare the footage I've got for 12 quid to the one that someone payed 80 quid for.... esp the older ones of the model reviewed, that actually only do 20fps...
They work well in good light (e.g. strapped to a snowboard boot), and badly in low light.
