I just started writing issues, already got three being drafted within two days, probably overkill, but wouldn't want to see them get stolen before I could finally make them.

My Randall Munroe books just got in, already had How To, just got Thing Explainer and What If.

And just got done moving; unfortunately the truck doesn't get here until Friday so stuck at home with nothing to do until then.

I just started getting active on the RMB a few days ago, met some interesting people, helped the idea deprived pollster himself, Thepeopl, and found my old DS Lite. Had MKDS, NSMB, Lego Star Wars, everything.

First post here, sorry if I sound a bit tired, probably because I am, but made some real progress in NS today. Hope to post more soon, my cats say hi.

It's definitely going to be interesting to see how piloting the thing goes considering the 15 minute input lag.

Probably autonomous, but you know what, that's great too! That means that the power of SCIENCE! prevails once again. After all, nothing can stop SCIENCE!

I assume you mean Voyager 2. Voyager 1 is still bitter that its brother got to go to the ice giants and all it got is a trip out of the ecliptic. :P
