    Agreed. And Feb. 1st marks the 12th anniversary of Columbia's breakup on reentry that killed another seven astronauts. As a friend of mine once said half-jokingly, late January seems to be a bad time to launch spacecraft.

    On a similar note, CDR Alexander Vraciu, the Navy's top scoring ace of WWII (among other things, he shot down 6 Japanese aircraft in one day, during the Battle of the Philippine Sea), died yesterday, at the age of 96.

    *blows the dust of my account, coughs heavily*

    Hi everyone! Jeriddian alerted me that the board code improved significantly, and I had to come back to check it out.

    Life update: I graduated from Virginia Tech in May '14 in aerospace engineering. I did it!! I did it!!!

    In November, I started my first "big boy" job at as a federal civilian at the Navy Yard in Washington DC. I'm working with aircraft carriers - specifically the newest carrier, the USS FORD. Can't say much more than that. :P

    I'm liking DC a lot, but I'm missing the tight-knit social circles of college. It's tough to rebuild those. Hopefully it will be easier once it's warmer out; things have been too damn cold!

    Congratulations, 'Chutes! Way to go on graduation and the new job. It's sounds like very important work and we old fogies around here are more than proud to see you succeed. Do what you gotta do, of course, but drop in when you can.

    Welcome back, 'chutes, and congrats on joining the military-industrial complex!

    So, have you started smoking fat cigars and voting GOP yet?
