Re: Quote of the week!

perhaps in some situations it could be kept in its holster, or even - now and then - left at home ... (although there is of course the issue that putting the warheads back into the submarines in a time of global crisis might make things even more tense). Given that most of the MAD scenario is based...

Re: Should this really have been refunded?

Yes I did see mention of that game and had to look it up, if off-line-mode-gate was a 'scam' that lot look like Nigerian bankers.

Re: End of an Era

It seems that it just can't keep up with modern emission and safety standards.
I remember when its ability to not roll over
Call me odd but lets play 'spot the 4x4' that would pass this (to me) essential test on farm vehicles?

Re: Elite: Dangerous - so near, and yet so far!

It is expected game v. received game That makes a lot more sense to me now, thanks for pointing it out. As a general rule I'd agree with most of what has been said above, and in particular the off-line-mode-gate. For now I'm happy with what I have (but to me the £150 I paid for the lifetime beta pa...

Re: Should this really have been refunded?

He probably bought a really expensive player. Sorry, I really am being particularly dim on this one (the computer Games I play are limited to Oolite and Elite: Dang). So in this 'game' its possible to buy stuff (I get that, cheats etc etc have been around for a while and my missus likes to add extr...

Re: Elite: Dangerous - so near, and yet so far!

#1 is 90.2 hrs, complains bitterly about the 'grind' (wonder what he'd make of oolite?), refuses to buy into Horizons after saying there's been no development. I'm not a big gamer is $40 a lot for a game? #20 (ish) This game goes out of its way to make learning the game just as difficult as possible...

Re: Elite: Dangerous - beyond the frontier

Wonder if that community has an attention span <1 hour. Most of the review slate it for being 'difficult to learn' (sound familiar?), or slate it for the pricing policy.

Re: Computer speed

I'll try. I've got a bias toward Acorns innovations during the 80's and 90's as I know their stuff well (was a BBC micro service engineer for a while). The original Von Neumann model required just one crystal to clock the whole 'model'. It was soon found that for various reasons different parts of t...

Re: An American Christmas card

Now, lets talk about history. The American constitution does grantee "the right to bare arms." .... The idea of "A Nation of Riflemen" is an outdated notion scrapped shortly after it's attempted application. This and a fair number of other Americanisms are covered in Bill Brysons 'Made in America' ...

Re: Elite: Dangerous - and the PLS

poor searching through the galaxy map
One of my pet hates is that it seems to be totally random as to which HIP etc you get, but it's never the nearest one! It should work via a drop down (ordered by distance) so that you can select the one you want.
