I used to be a regular on rmr a few years back, and finally left
'cause I couldn't stand the bullshit any more (and because I had
better things to do with my time).
I came back to rmr a couple of days ago to see what was happening, and
it's pretty much what it used to be, only there's even less useful or
technical content. On the other hand, that's quite a thread on
eliminating your debt without actually paying it -- all three
zillion messages of it.
The thing that is both most surprising *and* least surprising is that
Jerry Irvine is still here, still posting feverishly, and still not
making sense most of the time. At least he's not trying to sell me an
rmr tshirt. I'm becoming convinced that it isn't really Jerry making
all those posts. I can't imagine why anyone, even Jerry, would keep
this effort up for so long. I think it's really a computer program
making the posts. Using (poorly written) Artificial Intelligence
algorithms, it spouts various allegations and non sequitors and posts
BTW - What ever happened to
* John Cato
* Bob Kaplow (though I've met Bob in person since I was last here)
* that guy in Texas who said (over and over) that if you didn't fly
high-thrust minimum-diameter rockets to unbelieveable altitudes, then
you weren't a real man
* Chris forgot-his-last name (might have been Taylor?), the guy who
knew everything about everything and loved to 'help' us all. Used to
talk about four-wheeling with his jeep, too.
Hi to all of you still here, friends and non-friends alike. I'll
stick around a few days, but then I'll probably go away and won't
bother you here on rmr for another 4 or 5 years. Maybe I'll see you
at a launch this summer.
