Hey Publiusr, I noticed you haven't posted on nasaspaceflight.com in a few years. Did you get banned?
Jim and I swapped being banned. He used profane PMs against me that Chris Bergin allowed (while banning me), but got himself banned from Bad Astronomy/Universe today the way he treated folks there (not just me.)

A real jerk, yes, but still it is good to see passion in the real-space community.
The difference between you and Jim? Experience. I don't think I've ever read a statement from him that turned out to be wrong. He knows from where he speaks, unlike a lot of "armchair" space experts. And contrary to what you believe, in those threads you linked of finding an error with what he said, he wiped the floor with you there.

so I imagine a depot will be more challenging.
More challenging? yes. But remember a second stage is not a depot. Different design criteria.
