Try here!

Well, the problem with that is it's absurdly expensive, and you have to send away for it, so obviously you couldn't eat it.

My concept is a toaster at home that you could insert a photograph into, and the bread would come out toasted with the image. Edible art.

Probably better to be wifi, so you wouldn't actually have to insert the photograph.

All, as far as I understand. Making sure there's no human pollution on craft going to other planets, but also no pollution coming back from those other planets.

Or is it just a server that doesn't want to work anymore, it's thrown itself out the server rack?

Looks like DNS has gone again. Haven't they got a UPS for that switch yet?

Edit - and like last time, that's really slowing down posting here.

Edit 2 - see front page news at SETI.

Although most decisions on transgenders are done by politicians, can we please keep politics out of this thread?
