The above are Russian designed MiG-29 Fulcrums. I used to be a bit of a trainspotter when it came to fighter planes - knew everything about them - still do I suppose ............. My theory though is that fighters are going to get uglier and uglier from now on. They're not designed for speed any more - the main consideration is Radar stealthiness, which means they have to look ugly. The
F-22 Raptor for example is the most advanced combat plane in the world at the moment, and its a monument to ugliness from most angles. The Su-27 Flanker - again from Russia is the sexiest plane in my opinion, but I'm too lazy to dig a decent picture out of the web. Maybe some day.
These are links to some of the websites I've found that I've enjoyed.
Jamie Zawinski is one of the people who first made Netscape Navigator, Don't worry though his webpage is completely non-technical and bears very few references to his work. have a look at his Output page - Very interesting offbeat stuff.
I've loads of links to programming sites - particularly graphics programming as that's what I do at work, but I can't be bothered putting them up here. If anyone wants them they can mail me here and I'll pass them on.
