The performance increments are small and not necessarily in all areas. [...] Going back to the car anaolgy, improvements in performance between different versions of a car, (say a 1990s ford mondeo and a mondeo in 2010) are relatively minor in overall performance. I'm sorry, but that's wrong. The d...

Actually you have to do this on quite a few cars nowadays.

In the UK the self-employed have to pay VAT at 17.5% plus.... In germany it's 19%. And we have complex tax laws, too. Just look at EU laws to get a hint. They're german bureaucracy combined with french work morale. German bureaucracy is as great as french work morale, combined they are pure awesome...

"A single SpaceX-developed Kestrel engine powered the Falcon 1 second stage"

A domain isn't necessarily linked to a single website. You can host multiple sites under a single name, even without subdomains. Different prices for different countries aren't too hard to implement into a single website aswell. Usually you can detect the country the user/customer is coming from any...

Fugitives can't dock automatically, you have to manually.

I play without OXPs and went from the Cobra M.III to a Python and back. It's balanced and well suited to bounty hunting and piracy.

What system/OS are you running? What version of Ooolite are you running? If it's windows: You need at least Ooolite 1.71 to have yaw controls as LittleBear already stated. All previous versions only support roll and pitch. Mouse control should work just fine, try to click on the game window after ac...

I prefer music you don't listen to but still gets you in the right mood or a certain shooting rhythm. Music you don't listen to is usually electronica. :D At the moment I like Digitalism a lot. The song Pogo is great, it's not intrusive and doesn't get annoying even if repeated. Amongst my all time ...

If the ships are pedal-propelled there should be a Lance Armstrong/Tour de France OXP. It's fueled by narcotics and gives you a higher top speed. ;)

You just need a proxy in britain and access the five site through it. Tor should do the job. You may have to reconnect a few times to get a british exit node, but then it should work just fine.

The Asus EEE 70x series have got a intel 915GML chipset with integrated hardware accelerated graphics. It shares the memory with the CPU, but it supports hardware accelerated D3D and OpenGL. The 915GML is very lowkey in terms of performance and production (and costs of course) and it's old, too, it ...
