Re: Windows Update

" IE " ... that's a phrase I have to struggle to remember the meaning of. Is it something like "there should not be a monoculture of OS plus browser with hugely distributed holes (when identified) ; therefore, regardless of your OS, one should never use the OS's default browser ; in the case of a Wi...

Re: Windows Update

That link just tells me that "Javascript is disabled," which I knew already (NoScript). Oh, I see. Its a Microsoft website. No, I doubt that'll help much. And no, I'm not even going to temporarily allow MS to run code on my machine, even if it's in a browser's "sandbox". Microsoft upgrade woes? I th...

Re: Trading limitations

Buried in "developers" ... well, I certainly haven't delved in there. So, the Wiki needs the notes that RHs (without the OXPs you mention) can only receive 15TC/ commodity; (2^4-1) Coriolis can only accept 127 (2^7-1); Torus (the do-nut big stations) can take ??????? Small stations ("Trade Outpost,"...

In Ship Config, the things that will generate heat are injectors, Nope. in normal flight, T-drive. No injectors. initiating a hyperspace jump, I was heading towards the star to top off the tanthoseks before leaping into an Anarchy (with anticipation of trouble, and needing to jump on ; better to ha...

FYI - Anaconda overheats in Torus-drive??

Recently climbed behind the joystick of an Anaconda for probably the first time since 1990. Woah, it really does fly "like a rogue asteroid". But something was going wrong. When I went into Torus Drive in open space, my cabin temperature (and I assume skin temperature too!) would creep up over a mat...

Trading limitations

I finally had to get a new laptop - battery on the old one has died, and the damned thing just hasn't got the grunt to run some seismic analysis tools I'm trying to learn - and this one seems to have appropriate graphics acceleration to do justice to the current versions without overheating and lock...

A Kepler Orrery - and the source code is here . That's an interesting project (almost certainly out of date by the time he stopped downloading data and started coding ... but that's astronomy for you). An orrery for the current planet system would be an interesting, particularly in the more complex...

Re: resurrection of old threads - and misjumps

I was checking up on the OoPhysics of WitchSpace and time-of-flight and came across this old thread. I know its canon, but it makes no sense to me, and even if it did, as is said elsewhere why is the place always full of thargoids? The explaintions in my opinion are weak. The question that occurs to...

Re: Repair Bots OXLP (Thargoid)

Well, good to see that it's being worked on. Unfortunately, the laptop with the fancy graphics card has gone back to it's owners now, so I won't be able to do any testing.

Thanks RockDoctor & Norby. The removal part was clearly left unfinished. ... A new version (1.2.3) is available from the manager. Installing and testing. ...

Re: Repair Bots OXLP (Thargoid)

In theory, if the self-repair system is damaged, it should start repairing itself (and stop repairing anything else it may be working on). That may have been what was happening. Shortly after I got served with the "Constrictor at Xeer" message, and was on my way there ... the repair system came bac...

Re: [Release] In-System Taxi 1.2.2 - removing the meter!

I'm trying to track down some other problems with a different OXZ and decided to remove the Taxi radio, then remove the OXZ (once my ship had been offered the radio for installation again - as a sign that I'd successfully removed it. I get an option on my F3 equipment screen to "Remove In-System Tax...
