Re: I believe I owe everyone here an apology.

PE,

You're a person of "good will". "Good-will" persons are an enrichment for every community.

Re: HD 189733b IS BLUE

danielj,

the Nasa picture is too small. But in principle you could work it out by using the polar coordinates-filter, then:

copy to a new layer, mirror, merge the two layers and make your own improvements...

Re: lua tools - bug

Hey John :) i guess you are talking about my cockpit add-on...? is there something to fix? Or should I improve something? Concerning the "lua"- file... I'm using Jo?l's version (with "key" to change the dashboards). It works very well... (Un)fortunately I'm very busy with my work...

Re: Who wants to kill the forum?

Hungry4info, Fora (like shatters or CelestialMatters) are nothing else than a reflection of our world. Look around: The world is full of trolls. You find them at work, in the office or inside your TV. You can't ban them all. The only thing we can do is to ignore them. On the other hand... each one s...

Re: Who wants to kill the forum?

Well, actually I have currently no spare time for Celestia. But all this is annoying me. Last news: Cham is banned and olyv=argelesmer=lodgy is still here. This is the absolute victory of the trolls of this forum with the help of the administrators. It is really unbearable and this is my last post i...

Re: Cloud texture

If you are using photoshop (maybe an older version) or software which can handle .8bf files search for "elimblac.8bf".
The plugin deletes every black area of your image by using the Alpha-Channel.

Re: LUAPLUGINS: Distance Calculator

Massimo,

...But just in terms of quantum mechanics the terminologies are more precise and meaningful than "dark"... at least more "word-inventive" .

No need to apologize. Many misunderstandings are due to my own insufficient English.

No. But i guess you want misunderstand me. A teacher - and scientists are teachers - should not use the vocabulary of the student. This is the way of advertisement industries and radio & television... They use very often "Street Slang". Just to get a wider audience and as a consequence...

Re: LUAPLUGINS: Distance Calculator

Re: LUAPLUGINS: Distance Calculator

So, my question is: is there also a possibility for a measurement over great spatial distances? Large scale structures... E.g.: filaments, galaxy-clusters...? They are made up of point sprites, thus there is not "cord lenght" upon proper points. You don't start from "zero" but f...

Massimo, just download your add-on. Cannot test it, because my old computer is crashed.

Re: Oculus Rift (Virtual Reality Headset)

Brave New World...

For me this describes a nightmare vision of the near future.
But I also fear this will happen. And many, I say many people will like it!

Give the people bread and games and make them dumb.
And boredome will turn into dullness.

Re: Beware the trolls

I fear this is not the right solution. As we could see in the past. Better we follow Jo?l. His advice; do not feed, ignore him... @olyv: you're not stupid. Therefore the day will come when you'll realise what a poor person you are. Please change your habits. This would be better Not just for us but ...
