The Rocketry Forum (http://rocketryforum.com)invites you to help
commemorate Apollo 11 by logging on to the site across the time point
Tuesday, July 20, 10:56:15 PM EDT. This is 35 years to the second from
Armstrong's "one small step". 10:45 through 11:00 PD EDT would be a
good window. We'd like to set a record for users online during this
time, to use as a lasting record of the event. There will be a chat in
progress, but you can participate or not, just as long as you're
logged in during that time. Thanks.

So we will see unprecedented harassment of USR at that time too?

Alas, the proper time for rocketeer celebrations has passed for the year:
July 16th, 9:32AM: the anniversary of the LAUNCH.

I remember launching my Saturn-V on the first anniversary of the Apollo 11
launch, timed to the minute.

I did it! At 9:32 AM this last Friday, I launched my Quest Falcon on
an A8-3 in my front yard...landed one foot from the pad. Great Flight.
Yeah, yeah, I didn't have any Apollo-related rockets, so get off my
back, ok! ;-)

I'm hoping that is fixalbe real soon now. Peter Alway has been working on a
Saturn V kit. From what I've seen it's lots of laser cut parts like his
Astrobee, BT-70 or ST-20, and flyable on a C6 or maybe a D12. Sort of Big
Bertha sized.

weekend.

Did you even stick around long enough to notice that when people tried
that on TRF, the moderators removed it? That's what's good about
moderated systems. No crap. Same was true of Fidonet. It's a
refreshing change from the competitive *** of usenet.
