Re: Gaming fleeting thoughts

I lost my ship again; only got to mine for a few minutes. So close to warping away with nearly 3,000,000 ISK in gaseous bootay.

Re: Star Wars: Episode 7: Electric Boogaleven

I watched it this afternoon in IMAX; centre seat, centre row. My company even laid out posh popcorn and snacks, and I had a few beers beforehand. I think it's better than Electric Boogaleven. Cracking film. Really tip top.

Being in -1.0 sec, it sure does feel lonely to be in unreachable space. I remembered (this time!) to save the wormhole's location, so I wouldn't end up drifting ...
