Well it should come as no surprise that the Russian meteor event made quite an impact on this network even if it didn't make a huge impact on the ground. The infrasound signal recorded by the CTBTO network was the loudest it's ever recorded in the decade or so since it became operational. And while that's cool, the best part is that they've generated a version of the sound which is pitched up to make it audible to our limited human auditory faculties and you can listen to this signal on youtube.
The signal was powerful enough to be detected 15,000km away at stations in the Antarctic, and using multiple stations they put the time of the event at 03:22 GMT on 15 February 2013.

Good god I've managed to get 10 episodes into a series of Kerbal Space Program videos only having managed to irretrievably lose 4 rocket parts in the thousands that have gone into space. To celebrate such frugality I've got another raffle wherein I'm going to give out one (or more!) games from my Steam Gift collection, or even PLEX for Eve Online players.
I say 'or more' because the more entrants I get the more prizes will be added, so don't be dissuaded when you see thousands of entries, that'll just mean more winners.
As before, I'm letting Rafflecopter handle the entries to make sure everything is above board and there's no favouritism involved in selecting the winners.

Influenza viruses bind through hemagglutinin onto sialic acid sugars on the surfaces of epithelial cells, typically in the nose, throat, and lungs of mammals, and intestines of birds (Stage 1 in infection figure). After the hemagglutinin is cleaved by a protease, the cell imports the virus by endocytosis.I end up on extended wikisurfing excursions to make sure I understand each an every term. Wikipedia is great. Shame it isn't providing me with much in ammunition in my fight against the current crop of invaders.

Anyway, yesterday Strike Suit Zero was released, and I confess that I had been largely unaware of its existence until I saw the game on gog.com. I was sold instantly on the trailer and despite coming down with the flu I played it for an hour or so last night and the videos are being uploaded... slowly. The game does not disappoint, although people are apparently complaining about a few rough corners. It's available on GOG and Steam for 20% off until the end of January and if you want an action oriented space shooter then this is for you, if you instead enjoy playing something like Orbiter then this might not be the best fit.
Ahh here's one of the videos now:
Anyway I still have a pile of games I need to giveaway, so, I thought I'd try using this raffle widget to make sure it's all above board. This is primarily targeted at my subscribers so subscribers and followers get more entries into the raffle. a Rafflecopter giveaway
