the whole tense event dribbled to a close when the Russian module finally ran out of thruster fuel.
Does that mean the Russian module thruster can no longer be used, or is there the facility to refuel it?

All of those 'quotes' were genuine Max Miller that I remember from the late 1940s/early 1950s.

It beats me why anyone would want to holiday in a north east Scotland coastal town.....but they do!
Staycations for the multitudes that otherwise would travel to the Continent and find that the popular locations are booked out.

Re: Rant of the Day v2.

More and more facilities demand signing in with a password.
The latest for me is Classic FM online radio music site.

Either one settles for a universal password or has the complexity of trying to remember dozens of passwords.

Why does one need a secure, password-protected link to listen to music?

Re: Another Navy Wings article...

As a youngster I had a liking for the 'porpoise' livery aircraft - of which there were several.

I agree that the earlier presentation of the gate guardian was preferable.
