Dude, lat and long on the Typhoon please.

I would damn near give my left nut to go on one of those (and from what I hear with Russian reactors it might come to that).

BTW: At work this morning I met this old man wearing a submarine hat. Turns out he was in the sub force in 1938 and on through WWII. He was on the boat that sunk the Yamato. How cool is that?

I have a question about Google earth.

I have a Pentium 4 3.0Ghz. 2GB Ram, 160Gb Hard drive, and all the monitor space anyone could ever want. If I download google earth is it going to run on my system without bogging it down a lot? It looks really cool, and I want to get it.

Where was the shot of the place you live for 5 months? It looks just like the place I lived if a few improvements were made.

So if the Mo is in pearl, is that the Iowa? I know the Wisconsin is in Norfolk, and I think the NJ is in NJ.

From their website:
The Google Earth client requires certain system configurations in order to run smoothly.

Minimum configuration:

* Operating System: Windows 2000, Windows XP
* CPU: Pentium 3, 500Mhz - System Memory (RAM): 128MB RAM
* Hard Disk: 400MB free space
* Network Speed: 128 Kbits/sec
* Graphics Card: 3D-capable with 16MB of VRAM
* Screen: 1024x768, "16-bit High Color" screen

Recommended configuration:

* Operating System: Windows XP
* CPU: Pentium 4 2.4GHz+ or AMD 2400xp+
* System Memory (RAM): 512MB RAM
* Hard Disk: 2GB free space
* Network Speed: 768 Kbits/sec
* Graphics Card: 3D-capable with 32MB of VRAM
* Screen: 1280x1024, "32-bit True Color" screen


Yes, it should be able to run it unless you use a lot of the memory for other things. The biggest thing is the network speed needs to be fast.

Your screenshot-fu is very fucking weak.


After you paste the image into Paint, try resizing it so you don't waste space with the white area, task bar, etc.

Also, ALT+PrintScr will copy only the active window to the clipboard, by the way.

The picture HAS BEEN updated.

And they WERE out of commission and were waiting to be taken a part and REMOVED by truck to a couple of museums.


I was stationed at Edwards from 2000 to 2005 and looked at the base with Google Earth numerous times and here recently Google updated the images of the base.

While I was stationed there I also worked part time for the security company that provides security at the NASA Dryden Flight Research Center (where the SR's were parked and who last operated them) and got to check out the SR's a few times.


There are still two SR's at Edwards.

One at the base's museum.



And one near the visitors center at NASA Dryden Flight Research Center.




And there is one SR-71 and one A-12 near by at the Blackbird Airpark in Palmdale, CA.

Does anyone have any ideas as to what this is? It's in the hills above the east bay (morrison canyon).

The thing on the top left is a wire mesh airplane on its tail, and the area on the right appears to be a helicopter landing area. I don't know what the two white things on the bottom are. Someone said it was a radar testing station, but I don't know.
