The computer rides again


The 10x4.5's didn't fix any balance. They added enough margin to overcome a bit more imbalance. Can't get it as balanced as it was before the great crash of 12/13/08. Slippage of the CF rods doesn't seem to be a factor. The fault tree is down to damaged motor bearings.

We have onscreen battery & balance information to warn U when you're about to run out of power for attitude control, but had a loss of contol anyways.

Since all we can do is increase margin, the next step is installing lighter wires.

Next, we had a new dream. Your government gave Google's CEO a $17.4 billion check because he couldn't make his mortgage payments, so he decided to buy a retired space shuttle for $42 million.

He was towing it behind his custom mazarrati through Palo Alto, but the streets were too narrow & it hit some garbage cans. The garbage cans smashed an engine. He got out, cursed the damaged space shuttle, & decided to get another one. He gave the damaged one to us.

Unfortunately our dumpy apartment wasn't big enough & the central housing committee ruled we were ineligable for a mortgage because we only needed 1 room, so we towed it back to Kennedy Space Center. After driving 2000 miles, realized we didn't have any clothing on. Drove naked for the entire 2000 miles with only a box of diapers in the back seat.

Our clothing was still in Calif* & all the department stores were bankrupt. Couldn't buy anything. Couldn't find any towels or sheets anywhere. They only had small shirts in the visitor's center. So we ran around Kennedy Space Center naked, looking for someone to take this shuttle, but everyone kept running away. Ended up in a bathroom because we couldn't get any farther.
