Well everyone, I haven’t been in much of a position to blog lately, as much as I’ve wanted to. I’ll be taking Tiffany down to the hospital for surgery. Its not an unexpected one, but the timing was a bit surprising (yesterday our first prenatal checkup turned into a 5 hour visit since the doctor wanted to do the surgery immediately instead of waiting a week or two like we had original thought would be the case). The surgery worked just fine last time around, little Jonny was just fine in spite of being a bit early, so we’re not too worried.
Once we’re back from that, I’ll probably have stuff to post in the next day or two regarding XA-0.1. It looks like we should finally have in-shop all the rest of the engine parts, so we can finish getting this vehicle put together and into testing.
[Update 9:30pm: The surgery went just fine, and Tiff was ready to be released about an hour before they had initially predicted. It looks like she and the baby will both be ok. Also, on the rocketnerdlichkeit side, a bunch of stuff showed up today, so we should actually have a lot to talk about soon both here and on the MSS blog. Expect some eyecandy and bloggy goodness tomorrow]
