    Maybe it is a Diablo Telltale game? :D  (However I can see that happening)

    I mean, what could possibly go wrong in handing over a seemingly vital part of the internet to an unaccountable multinational corporation?!

    SpaceX 1Mile Sniper?

    50bmg rifles can do a 2.6" group at 1000yr... so about 5" at 1 mile is within rifle & shooter ability.

    The sniper has a target 12ft across and over 200ft tall- thats a SweetSpot aimpoint 12ft across with 40ft of vertical grace for ranging drop error.

    It even had evaporation clouds blowing off to help judge wind.


    Yeah, a professional marksman can hit that 1mile.

    And the slug from a 50bmg will still have gobs of impact energy at that dist


    The tricky part is taking that 50bmg shot without everyone hearing that handcanon BOOM

      The record for a sniper kill is 1.5 miles (which was a headshot, I believe) - the difference in target size is massive here and (depending on the exact desire for the hit - hit a fuel tank vs control system panel - gravity and earth curvature are potentially not even an issue).


      The weather conditions that are good for a rocket take-off are the same conditions that are good for snipers. Given that timings between imaging were probably not real-time there may well have been more than one shot and given the distance those missed shots would likely not have been noticeable (excepting muzzle-flash and sound in the building the shots were fired from) - the case of the 1.5 mile kill-shot was actually not the first shot and the target did not notice the misses.


      To be honest though I'm more surprised that this is the first time there has been serious suspected sabotage; the contracts for delivering things into space are worth billions, if not trillions should you get a good track-record.

      People are getting jealous of Elon Musk (though anyone fairly successful in the space game is someone people are going to be jealous of) and his general success if not his specific space-faring success.

      It is long overdue that these things are for real since they have been virtual for a very long time without repercussion and international businesses these days consider doing them par for the course - that this attitude has spilled into the real real world is not a surprise, more just a matter of time. It would not surprise me if competing companies did not have a seriously large amount of custom built by them gadgetry on their rooftops just to collect data and whatnot and that bolting on an automated sniper rifle system would be child's play. What would be really telling is if the rival in question has measures against that sort of thing built into their own operational procedures... if so then they've thought of it which makes it much more likely they have considered doing it themselves.

    Diablo 3 launch.  Good ol' Error 37. 

    Love my twitch prime, surprisingly it doesn't show on twitch alerts.  Guess have to wait for that to be rectified. Hope it doesn't take too long.

    Thank you Ashley for the News Roundup.

    Well, hopefully D4 has a better launch then 3. I really enjoyed Diablo 3, so I'm looking forward to seeing what they do with it. I've also lost a massive amount of respect for the SpaceX guy. Just wow.

      Well I enjoyed Diablo 1 and 2. I wasn't a fan of 3. I just hope I will enjoy 4.
