SpaceShips, Old and New . . .

Today it was back into the fray trying to figure out why our new Win10 machine won’t connect to one machine on our three machine network. And of course, it’s the one I need to connect to, the UPS Shipping machine.

I’ve posted some inquiries on several of the Tech Forums,  but I’ve heard nothing back yet. But I’ll keep trying.

I do have a couple of other ideas that I’ll try on Wednesday.

I put in a call to local Cummins Dealer up on the North Loop this afternoon, and ended up leaving a voicemail for the Service Manager about my oil leak problem. But I haven’t heard back yet.

I still plan to mount the oil filter back in place and lower the rig to see if I can reach the adapter by hand and see if I can pull, push, or twist something to release the adapter. But that will have to wait until Thursday. Or next weekend.

I came across a couple of new photos of the SpaceX’s Starship Mk1 down in Boca Chica, TX

Now that’s a spaceship

Makes you think of those space ships from the 1950’s

I did come across this trailer for a new version of H.G. Well’s ‘War of the Worlds”. Unlike the previous movie versions, this three part series is set in England in the 1890’s, just like the original book.

It really looks good, and should be out on BBC later this fall.

And if you let the trailer run, it moves on to the movie theater trailer for the 1953 version of WOTW starring Gene Barry. Check it out.

Thought For The Day:

“The only way to get rid of a temptation is to yield to it. Resist it, and your soul grows sick with longing for the things it has forbidden to itself, with desire for what its monstrous laws have made monstrous and unlawful.” – Oscar Wilde
