V.S.S Enterprise

Just got a look at a very impressive video over at CNN, of Virgin showing off the almost ready for production space ship program. Their first starship, which is a Space Ship Two model, is called Enterprise, with several other's to follow shortly. Virgin hopes to make starships that will allow one hundred thousand or more people to travel to space by the middle of the 21st century. They also stated that they want to build larger starships that can accommodate people like commercial aircraft can.

(sorry about the CNN watermarks, ripped these screenies straight from CNN video)

Inactiveness Explained..sort of

I apologize for being inactive, this is mainly due to the part that a lot of things are happening tech wise over here, and the transition isn't being as smooth as I'd like it to be. Firstly, I'm trying to get a hold of a new machine, my Vista testing and other fun stuff can't continue as this machine isn't really capable of running Vista as smoothly as I'd like it to. It CAN run it, but I'm used to the speed of XP, and the issues with Vista are mainly performance issues. I'll list my specs below.


AMD Athlon XP 2400+ 2.0Ghz


80GB Seagate HDD Partitioned three ways

Sapphire ATI Radeon 9550 256MB AGP 4x/8x

--Recommended Minimum Specs for Windows XP

1.0Ghz and up Intel Pentium III/AMD Athlon Processor and up

1GB Ram



--Recommended Minimum Specs for Windows XP

2.0Ghz Intel P4/AMD Athlon Processor and up

2.0Ghz Ram




Pretty no brainer, I haven't had a real chance to touch Vista, as my system isn't the greatest thing in the world, but those are the specs that I'd tell people they'd need to have at a bare minimum to run it nicely.


Also, I'm going to be getting an Xbox 360 with all the trimmings, so I will likely be a little inactive and when I am active, it'll be heavy in Xbox 360ness as I get my hands on Halo 3.. :)
