It's far from ideal, certainly... all ships have their pros and cons, though! Would you by any chance be interested in writing a pilot's review of the PCC for inclusion in the proposed Rough Guide ? It wouldn't have to be wholly factual, of course: you could include information on crew quarters, int...

Nothing wrong with a few signposts pointing every which way, I suppose. A "Through the Wormhole" piece could contain all sorts of unlikely stories, lies, exaggerations and assorted bullshit. But Mr Gimlet obviously isn't the type to spin a line... he's got both boots on the bulkhead, him. ...

Thanks, Commander! And thanks too to LittleBear, for the link from the Instruction Manual. As to the lies... I thought it best to stick to straight advice at the start. We can feed in a few untruths as we build up more material for the Rough Guide. They'd have to be few and far between, and they'd h...

Well, Professor Google suggests that "alus" is Latvian for beer. No reason why there can't be Latvian speakers in Oolite! Don't know about "ou", though... maybe an interjection indicating general approval of the idea of beer? :) I've never seen those comms messages before, though...

Thanks again, folks... I'm going to need a bigger jar for my swollen ego! I've put the piece up on the Wiki here , and created a small page for second-hand ships too with a link to the Rusties OXP. There's nothing on the Wiki that links to this, obviously. Any suggestions for putting a link in to th...

Good point. There isn't a wiki page though for the Rusties... I could set one up for the second-hand ship market in general. Anyone got any suggestions for a title for a wiki page for the station official's comments?

A station bar might be a possible option as a place to visit... it would be a good place to find out about any special events. Or even just to buy the guysngals a round of drinks to celebrate a particularly profitable run... Za Brew for everybody! I just made a pile on Platinum!

Thanks, everybody! another_commander, as far as I'm concerned I'd be delighted if you append it to the ReadMe. If there are no objections or alterations I'll stick this on the Wiki, too, and link through to the various OXPs mentioned. If this goes on the ReadMe it should probably mention, and link t...

Part two... There’s two types of money, kid: fast, and slow. Fast money comes easy, and slow money comes hard. The slow is sure and steady, though, and the fast, well, it might make you wish you had waited. I’ll run you through them both, though, and you can make up your own mind. First of all, for ...

OK, I've put together a first draft of "Advice to Young Jamesons", as given by a somewhat opinionated official in Lave station. It's about 2,200 words long, so I'll split it into two posts -- although it is all one long ramble. Comments, criticisms, etc. all gratefully received, from veter...

Ohh, Ray Bradbury... I remember getting The Illustrated Man when I was about 8 or 9, and being immensely impressed that the author's name was bigger than the title on the cover, which seemed a big deal to me then. I think my favourite story was "Kaliedoscope". Still one of my favourites, r...
