Actually I'm in for over $3200. As I've said before, I've spent far more over a weekend in Vegas.
...
If it's ok with you I'll continue to spend money on my hobbies that are important to me. If I have it to spend/waste then what business is it of yours to say how I spend it?
In principle, I agree with you. As I've said before, I spent over $1,000 in subscription fees on WoW over 6.5 years and I believe it was money well spent. But $3,200 for a game you haven't tried yet? That seems excessive, but I guess if you have so much money you think about dropping 3 grand on a game the same way I think about spending $30 on a steak dinner then it makes some sense.

Also as I said before, I hope you get your money's worth. Because for that to be true, it will have to an awesome game. And that means we will all win. However, I won't be holding my breath or betting the house on it.

Query: Do we know if "First Discovery" is the first detailed scan of the object or the first person to SELL the data for a detailed scan of the object?
D'OH! Nevermind, the webpage says first sale.

Comment and query: My biggest gripe for the functionality of the game right now is the automated slow down in cruise mode with going to in system objects very far away. Why does it start slowing down when I am still more than 100,000 ls away? This is quite annoying, anyone found a way around it?

I don't play anymore but I just wanted an in-game method of unlocking more stash space. They really don't give you enough.
While I agree in principle, it really isn't so bad now that they have the stack limits on the crafting materials so high.

This is kind of cool. There's a data dump with people who the first to discover objects in the game. It's a few weeks old, so Tooch is probably half-way up the list by now.

And I'm not completely sure what the 'tag' is based on. I think it might just be from using a discovering scanner without actually scanning them. I just can't imagine actually scanning 96,000 objects.

The page says it's static data provided by FD and unlikely to be updated. That is really too bad, even a once a month update would be really cool.

Also be interesting to see what kind of repairs you have to make from such a long journey.
Well, I brought along a Auto Maintenance Unit, but I haven't used it. All the modules are reporting 100% still..

Ended up just over 6,000 ly from Sol, on my way back now. Looking forward to finding out how much cash I get from the exploration and how far up the explorer rankings I move...

You are right, Nin. WAY too many people get pets without any thought into what effort will be required to care for the pet.

Dogs are cool, but I have no desire to "clean up" after one of them. Not too mention the issue with them needing to go out when there's snow on the ground and/or its zero degrees out.

That's why the man has always done a lot of editing on other people's work, anthologies, a lot of short stories, etc. because he'd rather be doing anything else than writing a saga. He's said as much many times over the years how much of a chore this sort of thing is for him.
Which is exactly why I refuse to start reading A Song of Fire and Ice until he actually finishes it. Which he may not before dying, in that case I'll have saved myself a good chunk of time and probably a lot of frustration.

I love my dogs almost as much as I love my wife and my son. There is nothing greater, other than family, in owning a dog.
I like dogs, but I'd never own one. Way too much work, especially for those of us in areas where real winter bares its teeth. If I were going to get a pet it would probably be two cats.

The word "genius" seems insufficient to describe current chess champion Magnus Carlsen. ... I remember reading an article about him playing 12 games of chess simultaneously without looking at any of the game boards. Of course, he won them all.
I agree with your assessment. I saw a film clip of this event, I believe during a 60 Minutes piece on Magnus. Absolutely insanely stunning...

Eleven charges?! I don't think that exists anymore.
Looking the wiki it seems you are correct. Too bad, that was quite the win. I'll miss it when I rebuild a battle ready Cobra.

Yeah, I tried the Viper first but was annoyed by the power issue, switched to a Cobra. Which I was able to get a shield bank with 11 charges for -- which was a good thing for me.

Been buried in work this week to the point of not having energy leftover for gaming -- over the weekend I was playing D3. It's been my first break from E:D since the beginning of the year. I think I'll get my butt back to populated space when I play again, this weekend if not sooner.

Well, currently I'm about 5,000 ly from Sol. IIRC, my Type-6 is stored in the Juan system. But as Spectral indicatded -- wherever is fine.

Got within 600 yl when I finally identified it. It appears it is a series of black holes in the "NGC 7822 Nebula" -- it is a feature easily find-able in the galaxy map. But apparently there is a "gap" around the Nebula, I get "route unavailable" when attempting to get a route there.

Currently I'm trying to get to this whatever it is..

Edit: The issue is I can't see that in the galaxy map... so it going through all the jump points one at a time hoping one goes generally in that direction....

I've actually started into stations a couple of times now without requesting docking... always a scary moment. So far I've gotten out quickly enough each time, usually with a 400CR fine.
