Help with paypal and old email.

I’ve been trying to get into an old paypal account that I haven't used in a few years. I was registered with a Freeserve email which I also haven’t used in years.

Will this email still be accessible?

I remember Freeserve was taken over by Orange but no joy on their site. Any ideas guys?

Re: New Commander

This time I have started with a brand new install of Trunk. I am only going to install eye candy Maybe UPS (but don't take the combat missions). But definitely Explorer's Club . No extra ships. I want a pure clean game. I will start off with an Adder with a passenger berth, injectors, fuel scoop an...

STEAM

I know I've been lacking on the member front but I really need help from you Oolite guys. Every time there is a problem with my pc, Steam is mentioned. Now on this pc I have only downloaded demos from Steam. But still I get it. How can you completely erase Stream without hurting other stuff? From an...

Re: Storm Shipyards

Yeh, it was mid '90s. I was kicked out 2 weeks before the handover. Not sure what you mean by "mainland". The mainland across from Hong Kong Island is Kowloon, also part of the territory. The island was only a small part of the colony. Regarding the lux car thing, I don't know anything about stolen ...

Re: Thank you all..

I think thats what most people think about this game. Why it isn't the most popular game in the world I will never know.

Which gets me thinking. How popular is it? Are we talking about thousands of downloads, or hundreds of thousands? Anyone got the figures?

Re: Storm Shipyards

the Fer-de-Lance is an ugly shape. Doesn't really scream slick bounty hunter at all. Heh... I just pulled into Maraus, checked the shipyard, and found nineteen Ferdies for sale... and one Anaconda! That reminds me of when I lived in Hong Kong. If you bought a local paper and went to the used car se...

Re: Relative Difficulty

Well the Electron version was much easier than Oolite. For some reason I couldn't save my game so every session was "ironman mode". I could get to dangerous in one sitting. The memory thing is a bit anoying. I was convinced that you could buy ships in the origonal game. Aparrantly not. Not that I ev...

Re: No missile slots = no info?

OT. This is fantastic. Flying a Krait, wrong side of the law and bounty hunters using me for target practice. This is fantastic. Had more manual kills in the last hour than I've had in the last year. All this time wasted trading, when a pirate's life is what I should of had. Got so used to using hit...

Re: No missile slots = no info?

When my four pylons are empty, I resort to using 'r' for target ID. Ah, is that the problem? Well, that has nothing to do with having missiles or not. Under all circumstances the default key for turning the target computer on or off is (and always has been) 'R', since the days of 8bit-Elite. By the...

No missile slots = no info?

Want to start as a new commander with a mean and yellow streak :twisted: . Looking to buy a small fast combat ship like the Krait. Problem is, any ship without pylons cannot target another ship. Which means I cannot get any info from the targeting computer. Is this the case, or am I missing something?

Re: Name this film.

I still remember watching "The Black Hole" as a kid and thinking its great. Never seen it since, should I risk it? It's a long time since I watched it, too, but I guess I'd find Maximilian still scary. Whether the rest would hold up, I'm not so sure. The most I remember is MAX being a big scary rob...
