Last steady job had me doing a JPA web app with a JSF frontend and Android client. Code was stored on SVN, built by Maven, all from inside Netbeans/Eclipse.

 

Sometimes I think the universe is out to get me.

Tree.js has a Collada loader. They had this among their examples:

Fun little app. Was fooling around with something like this back in the Delphi days. Does anything like this exist for phone/tablet?

Scores:
Earth is habitable but influenced by single outer dwarf star. Fast forward for cool corona-like effect of Earth's orbit. 17,734,857 points.

Earth is habitable but with strange orbit caused by inner dwarf star causing the Sun to wobble. An outer brown dwarf completes the pretty picture. 16M pts.

Wonder how crazy these systems can get without causing instability?

Also wonder if they could be cheating in anyway in their calculations, since we are dealing with a "simulation" game.

If you were doing the exact measurements, and modelling and simulation of a distant star system, how long a simulated stability period would you consider "ok for settling"?

I mentioned before that I am a supertaster.  It is common for supertasters to eat fewer vegetables—and I am no exception—and thus have an increased risk of colon cancer.

People keep saying we will die horrible deaths on Mars, crash land, blow up on the launch pad, etc., but the fact is, with a fully vegan diet, going to Mars might just save my ass!

Rimshot.  I’ll be here all night folks.

Get your ass to Mars.

 

Seriously though, even if your expertise in reaching childhood dreams is both right for you and highly inspirational to others, don't you think you'd be better off taking care of your ass here on Earth? Cancer from vegetable abstinence would surely occur decades before you could actually get out there.
