:D Following up on Sigurd's kind suggestion that it was okay to post some artwork on the walls of the cafe. Here's a quickie virtual windtunnel test of a potential X Prize contender:

I like the model, but where's the "windtunnel" part of it? oh yea, and those engines look awfully small....

The windtunnel is virtual, ya can't see it :) ... but, yep, needs lots bigger engines. I'll elaborate on it when I get time... maybe do a real hot rod that can do 0-60 gravs in 15 seconds or so. Heh, heh.

lol, 60 gravs meaning 60Gs? that's not a hot rod, that's a missile!

EDIT: oh yea, i was thinking if you had a windtunnel thing you might show the flow in the graphic, like all the cfd pictures you see do.

I like it! If somebody tells me how to post pictures (bitmaps + Jpeg's) I will be able to show you all my autistic side!

Luke, you can use the IMG tag (see the buttons at the top when you are replying to message). You will need a server to host your picture on, then just put the link to it between the open and close IMG tags. It is good netiquette to keep the size of your art under 100K so that the folks who still have dialup connections can enjoy it easily also.

Looking forward to seeing some of your work.

Best,

--Ralph

Are you going to do long division in your head with really big numbers for us?;)

Just kidding. Sometimes typos entertain me.

Typos, misspellings, straying from good grammar, unintended twists in meanings as tangled fingers tumble across the keyboard---all those indicate naught but great minds in throes of lightning fast communicative endeavor simply outrunning the medium of intelligence transferring. :lol:

While I have more than once used the above excuse :oops: (always to little avail), the truth is that we all just gets a bit sloppy from time to time. I just read through them. :D

But, then, I guess I have an autistic soul. :roll:

Luke, ignore us and keep on keeping on, man. :)

Of course, I nevur mispill wurds. Nevur.

Best,

--Ralph

I thought what Luke said was correct. What Forrest was talking about is a savant.

Anyway, as Dr_Keith_H said I think this is all missing the point of what he said. Funny :lol:

Funny is good, I was not taking it seriously :)

And I loved Forest Gump... I've even sat on the bench in Savanah where he did the box of chocolates thang.

And speaking of weird humor:

By 2150, the Greenhouse Effect had not only become more pronounced, it had taxpayers protesting truly astronomical window washing bills.

Thanks Author, I will have a go at posting a picture I found in the archives when I get back to work, I can't handle this crappy dial-up modem at home. I might as well use the Royal Mail! :lol: (Although to be fair on my modem, my e-mails stand a good chance of being delivered!!)
