Q&A Section Intro
« on: 02/26/2008 01:16 AM »
The winning option for a new section on the forum, this is the one stop Q&A section.

As noted in the request, this will make life easier to search for answers on the subject matters covered in the Q&As.

Check the graphical guide on how to search the Q&As without getting a load of other results from various places, see next posts:

I want to find some answers on the Microwave Landing System (MLS).

Click Search (top left)

Enter the key words.

Ensure you check the tabs highlighted.

Hit "Go".

When the results come up, click "message" - it will load up the whole thread, but it will highlight all key words as you scroll down.

If we have a question that doesn't fit into any of the the treads can you make a new thread with the question?

No, it would be a new thread on whatever subject section. Q&As are a series of questions and answers on a specific topic only. If a thread grows into a series of questions and answers then we can move it here.

Is it possible to split up some of the threads. For example the ISS construction thread is currently 26 pages. Or a summary that lists the topics covered and links to the right point in the thread?

Is it possible to expand the Message index in some outline fashion so as to see all the sub-pages in one long window?

I think there is a general thread -- the General ISS Q&A Thread should be what you are looking for...

FWIW, one can use the "Print" button to display the entire thread.  I've had no problems with fifty pages or more.  Use the IE "find" function to search for a name, or a term, or a date.  Unfortunately, in IE5&6, one loses all the graphics by selecting this option, although links are correctly spelled, and can be copied and pasted into a new session of IE.

This selection is good for saving a long thread to the hard disk, rather than saving a page or two at a time in the full graphics mode.

why, oh why, would someone still use ie5 or 6 or 7, when there are much better alternatives available?

I believe that there's no acceptable answer to your question.  Does the print function work for you?

I was watching some ISS photos recently where the create a water bubble to study surface tension in low gravity. It seemed as if the force of surface tension was greater in low gravity. If so what does this mean for the likelihood of low gravity planets maintaining water and oceans in theoretical simulations.
