It still doesn't allow exploration of Oxygen atmosphered planets, dang it!

Ok, now that THAT"Ss out of the way...

It has come to my attention that certain other members have been showing up online, too. Perhaps a Sunday get-together for some of us as FI?

Real Life sucks sometimes.
I won't be available for the next few weeks due to work and a trip to see Murph.
Currently no gaming at all due to the room has been completely emptied for the re-tiling ofthe floor. :(

First things first. No worries, Dan! Eventually we'll get there and find some time to bully the space in ED ... :lol: ;)

"ED"? :doubt:

Man, at my age can we call it something else? ;)

Maybe "ED" is, after all, appropriate.
That last update makes my PC crash when I switch to the Galactic Map, screws up ALL my controls, and has made any and all NPCs coming after me "Deadly". Especially if I've accepted a "Chain Mission". :evil:
How's a guy supposed to make a decent living anymore? ;)
[Edit] Mike has problems, too, although only with TS. When it works it works great, but is consistently disabling his mic. When he cools off I'll see if I can help him sort it out.

Mike's mic worked ok Friday night. Got me squared away with some upgrading, and greatly appreciated!
Now if I could just get to another system without some f*cked up NPC with a Deadly Anaconda killing me before I get a chance to deploy my weapons it'd help. That last update seems purposely designed to make lives miserable. Can't go ANYWHERE without an NPC Deadly Anaconda popping out of nowhere for the sole purpose of killing me!
Upgrading to a Krait cost me plenty, but at 2.7-3.2 million every time I have to get a new ship I'll be back in a Sidewinder before I want to.

I have this just no time to play. But hopefully later in the year.

Mike helped me with a strategy to help avoid those deadly NPCs.
Selecting my missions a bit more carefully definitely helps, and immediately bouncing out to a different system, then right back again may help a bit.
No time for ED at this time, though. PArt arrive for one of my bikes and for the mo' that's a priority.
