There was one delightful chap who has a pic on the forum somewhere. He dresses like a pretty hardcore lunatic and inferred he was some sort of x special forces/militia whatever in his home nation even though he was only in his early twenties. He was from somewhere in eastern Europe and he turns up at every single meeting of the cult dressed in combat fatigues and sporting serial killer shades, genuinely pissed off that he cant walk round strapped . He is physically fit looking, with a military haircut and looks like a stone murderer
He said , without the slightest hint of any bullshit that he could organize the silencing of any dissenters , he would do this for free and there were many like him in his guild/unit or whatever it was. Normally one would simply laugh at these idiots but this fruitloop had seen some poo poo, whatever that was.
He was actually one of the nicer ones. Some simply have no sense of personal space and have a strange aroma about them , others offer their girlfriends up or try and give you jewelry etc. One guy wanted to pay a small mortgage to have a star system named after himself and offered a blank cheque pretty much.
There are just too many to mention. The fourth Stimpire is just the tip of a very deep iceberg. They are mainly white , all male and the odd one has an even crazier looking girlfriend who will either be north of a healthy weight or look like Aileen Wournos.
Lots of nationalistic rhetoric , many of them see the verse as a fourth Riech. Dont know what else to say really you can see for yourself by the posts in various places what these guys are like.

Are you sure that guy wasn't the Stimperor himself?
Considering he's allegedly Serbian?

(Also the nuclear bomb laser weapons from Reagan's Star Wars didn't turn out to work in later nuclear modelling simulations AFAIK. They were also explicitly nuclear weapons, the beam was formed from x-rays made by thermonuclear fusion. Nothing of the sort happens with a regular TNT bomb.)

Interestingly, the exact opposite sequence is a viable thing.
You can use a laser to trigger a Z-pinch, creating an extremely strong X-ray burst, that initiates a thermonuclear reaction in a target.

Few pages back, but how would this work? Im writing scifi and that sounds awesome :D

I don't know the specifics beyond the vague idea and i think it's purely experimental and not very useful outside of an experimental environment.
But the general idea (i think) is this - you ignite a plasma using lasers and conduct a burst of electrons (extremely high current, extremely short time) through it.
The current induces an extremely strong magnetic field Z-pinching (imploding) the plasma.
The imploding plasma lets out an intense burst of X-ray photons.
X-ray wavelength photons bombard a (suitable) target, initiating a thermonuclear reaction.

The backers bandwidth isn't what's staggering.
Backers are quite likely all on flat rate.

Their hosting, however, most certainly isn't, and they're shipping out 20-30 GB per patch per downloader.

Oh don't worry, I've already started working on the startup sequence immersion. Just audio so far, but your ship doesn't get full power until it's finished its startup sequence. Making it very, very annoying and overlong will require a lot of iteration.

Here's a teaser. Might be a bit loud.

Oh, man, make it be an eternally rising note. Like this:

And make it last a few minutes.

Also, at least a dozen start buttons of different sizes, all saying START and making bleep bloop noises.
You have to press all of them to start.
