It'll never be a huge commercial success. The airspace is already full. And when are people going to realize that a flying car is... a plane! Because if you have a flying car, why the heck would you drive it anywhere and not fly it all the time!? :D (paraphrasing James May there).

I see you guys still haven't made the FORUM button on the front page it's own category, like Main, Games and Community...

Seriously, visibility is a very important thing in an UI, and it will likely mean more new people visiting the forum.

I was actually just now testing to see if it's still visible while logged out (since i didn't notice it before going to the forums, just when i went to see the categories so i can put them in my post, but that's probably because of my own familiarity with the front page).

Yeah, that's a good addition.

I still think it's own Category on the left would still be good (if you can make a link as a big text, just have a FORUMS category with a smaller Forums link - actually, didn't it used to be like that once upon a time?).

Well, it's also on the left but it's small, in the middle of te main menu. There's certainly not much visible.

Originally, it was grapical button indeed, and the visibility was much better.

I just bought a house! :) :applause:

I've been trying for four years to get a proper house so I can move out of this small apartment, and finally I was able to do it. It does put me in bigger debt but I'm confident I can manage that. I'll have to move to a city half an hour away, though... big summer project!

This is the original, Škoda Popular Monte Carlo, you could seen it racing or in movies almost like ninety years back.

And this is contemporary lift, pretty much still elegant. But only one model exists :)

Mr. Coulter is running small homebrewed nuclear reactor. As shared knowledge is better, it can be worthy to check his forums ;)

And now something historical, from Ancient India. Did you know that gunpowder was known in the India before it was 'discovered' in China? This is proved by text in vedas and statues in India temples. Which show, shooting pipes and grenades.

It's also interesting that grenades were found in Syria and around, in similar shape like today but done as pottery.
