Re: Orphanage....

Ok guys, I've edited up a short piece of video on the orphanage which gives some idea of what was shot during those 2 days. The full documentary will come later.

Re: Planespotting

I just heard on the news that the SW crew were grounded after landing. My guess is there are a couple of pilot jobs going at SW now.

Re: Orphanage....

And that one BE member will be lil 'ol me. Watch this space (quite literally) for the outcome of my visit. It'll be fun to see what is going on down there and all the good work they are doing.

Re: Price of transatlantic flight.

I dunno about MCO but they are still flying B747-400's from MIA-LHR. Was on one in May. At least it's a direct flight and it had an upgraded VOD system.

Re: Let's talk about cars

It pays to be green. I did 30 miles this morning, used 2hrs of electric to recharge at a grand cost of $1 and I didn't contribute to global warming directly :) (smug mode on).

Elon Musk decided not to launch the Model X this year so they could concentrate on customer service and getting the Supercharger network expanded. One Supercharger in FL could well be ready as soon...

Re: Let's talk about cars

The first part of your statement is true but I'm sorry, I can't let the second part go. If you think 45 minutes to do a 90% charge, which Li-ion batteries prefer, on an 85Kw battery is a "long...

Re: Let's talk about cars

Tesla is a perfect example of a private business/Government partnership. Without the loan in 2009 arguably they might not have made it this far AND they've paid back the loan 9 years early.

I still remember my Elonex 486SX 25Mhz w/4Mb of RAM. That was 1993. About $2400 when adjusted for inflation today.
