Dave,

Apparently nothing happened in the Designer's studio after 2009. (I'm kidding!)

That may have been when Craig McGraw's "fire in the belly" drifted over to stick and paper airplanes... (thoughtful look)

Cheers,

Cough, cough... wheeze...

Someone said my name!

The only thing that has happened since 2009 is I've gotten a lot older, grumpier, lazier, made a move to a "new" house and boxed everything up [that's three and a half years ago!], and I'm still looking for 'those boxes' after all this time. Oh, and I've played a LOT of KSP since then...

If there's any good news, I'm still breathing... Barely...

Found a couple of really old pen drawings from about that date. But I've forgotten just about everything I ever knew about RockSim. Sigh.

I miss Carl, too...

Yes, but that was *so* seven months ago...

Good to know that you're still kicking.

Yeah, I miss Carl.

And I quit dinking around with RockSim about five years ago after our successful unmanned test launch over the Snake River Canyon.

All the "new" designs I could come up with usually had some variation of three fins and a ring fin...

CRAIG!!!! Good to hear from you. I was wondering about what happened to you a couple of weeks back. Can't remember why, but I can't remember breakfast, either.

Breakfast around here consists of opening a box, shoving a biscuit in the nuker, and grabbing a cup of coffee. Wash and repeat. Ad nausium...

And as for those "stick -n- tissue" models I started working on, the 'new' house doesn't have enough room to work on them, much less store them. I've kinda stopped doing anything with them, too. Moved back over to an occasional plastic car or plane, just to have something to do. Bought myself an airbrush to play with - an Iwata NEO (made for, not by, Iwata...). Nice $100 brush for $50 at Hobby Lobby...

Been thinking about getting back to something rocket-y for a while. Creative juices and such...

Been wondering how far the program has been updated since I dropped out back then - what, 10 years ago? Last I recall, we were still having to 'fudge' some pretty basic ideas to get our designs to behave.

Good to know there's still some activity in rocketry. Down here in Mobile, the LHS owner says the RC aviation side of things has pretty well dried up, business-wise, what with all the gov regs being imposed.

I'll try to keep more of an eye on this forum. Maybe I'll even get back into getting off my bum and doing something...
