Moon Landing - Neil's comments on running low on fuel

I'm sure most of you know that Apollo 11 decent to the moon surface was running low of fuel. You can hear Buzz say 1 minute remaining. They landed with 30 seconds left.

Re: Future changes to Chrome

Read FP's thread #4 or 5 I think that tells you to turn off the ad blocking. Once I did that it works great. If you use Ublock Origin you don't need the built in ones as they seem very restrictive.
I had exactly the same problem logging into this site until I turned off their first 3 shields.

Re: Do you feel Iran looking at war

The Empire strikes back. They really like poking the bear. Hope they know what a can of whoop ass they are playing with. Once the can is opened, it doesn't go back in.

Re: Future changes to Chrome

I must say that the Brave browser is very fast. I can't believe how much faster it loads than FF with the same addons:
LastPass
Ublock Origin
Privacy Bagger
AdGuard Ad Blocker

Re: The $139 Nokia 2.2 brings back the removable battery

I had a Samsung S5 with the removable battery. The problem is getting a GOOD battery replacement. If I ever get a new phone that comes with a removable battery, I'm going to order a replacement battery directly from the OEM. The ones you get later on when the phone is 3+ years old are from China and...

Re: Half Life 2 Episode 3 fan project

I wish the readme file stated that I needed to download the HL2 update that came out in 2015 per your link: https://store.steampowered.com/app/2909 ... _2_Update/

I installed the update, and now the mod works with no issues.

Lone Ranger and Tonto

A man boarded an airplane and took his seat. As he settled in, he glanced up and saw the most beautiful woman boarding the plane... He soon realized she was heading straight towards his seat … As fate would have it, she took the seat right beside his. Eager to strike up a conversation he blurted out...

The ai_norebuidgraph should be set to 1 (ai_norebuildgraph 1) and not left blank. It was the only way I could get it to work.

Re: Half Life 2 Episode 3 fan project

Got it installed and it does make a difference in the game play visuals. The gun mods are great. I did have an issue with an error that I got in chapter 2 after you get into the single train car with a human and an alien. After getting out of the train car where it loads the game, I get this error: ...

Yeah winzip sucks. Version 11 was the last best version. I've been using WinRAR mostly, but I still use version 11 with windows 7.

Yeah I still have my zip txt file also, but I also disable FF's built in password manager, and I don't allow it to auto-fill. I use LastPass, and keep a copy of the sites my zip file as a backup.
