If I see that I can buy x tons of something and get paid a premium if I deliver it in x weeks, and then borrow the money from the monks to be paid back in less than x weeks (which turn...

Before an Advanced Compass became a regular thing, to find the station, I would jump into the system and put the planet in the center of my compass (the dot ) and then go as far as I could to get there, hoping nothing would shoot at me.

A friend and I were talking. If they are 20 ly away, then episodes of the Simpsons and Beverly Hills 90210 are just starting to reach them. I'm not sure if this is a good thing or a bad thing.

Just made me realize: I've never used it in Oolite. Didn't the escape capsule in Elite actually travel to the station and was in danger of being shot as well?
