Yeah, that is not surprising -- from what I had seen I haven't even bothered adding Birdman to my 200 movie Netflix queue. And let me tell ya, there are certainly some so-so movies in that list.

Is there anyone who wants to see three more Avatar movies other than Cameron? I don't know of any.
I'll watch 'em on cable, but I won't be going to the theater to see them.

Hmmm, I've forgotten a couple of times and done it sitting next to the station and hadn't noticed it being quicker, but I wouldn't want to swear to it.

I like that the route planner is going to allow longer routes, I just hope they manage decrease the time it takes to plot them. Currently a 900 ly route would take a LONG TIME to fill in...

Gimballed cannons and fixed pulse? And that's just a basic scanner or the kill warrant scanner?

Wow, either I'm doing something really wrong or I really suck at combat. Finally got around to buying and equipping a Viper. Took what I assumed was a simple combat mission with only a 4k payout and got smoked. Maybe the guy I picked a fight with wasn't one of the "traders" I was supposed to be engaging?

Swapped Leesti in for Lave in my loop spreadsheet. The typical supply of Lavian Brandy was pretty bad.

11 stop loop

I believe it's supposed to be 1-7 of the commodity every 10 minutes and should be dedicated to you. That's just off the top of my head from remembering what's been said before -- so might not be exactly correct.

Yeah, that definitely puts the damper on getting a docking computer. Was considering one when/if I upgrade my Cobra trader to a Type-6.

I sold my Asp. I miss it so much already. I went to the founder's world and bought a type7 hauler for 15 million. Then I spent all day grinding an additional 7 million and traded that stupid ship to get the Clipper.
Don't you need significant Empire reputation to get that?

The Lyell Hub in the Juan system near Bast has most ship models.

I haven't messed with the reputations yet. Does earning rep. for one faction automatically cause a reduction in the others? Or can you build up rep in all the factions if you have the time?

they regularly take people who are the 1%ers of attractiveness, and then photo-shop the crap out of them and then present non-reality as obtainable if you'd buy their product and presumably work out 24/7.
Yeah, I'm not sure what it says about our society that this kind of manipulation isn't thoroughly ridiculed. It's worse for women who are bombarded with this type of imagery on a very regular basis.

This problem is more imagined than real. Just arrange your HOTAS, keyboard, and mouse so that they're all in a row and easily accessible. It's not that hard.
I can't do that, my HOTAS (a Thrustmaster T.Flight) has a cable between the two units shorter than the width of my keyboard. And even if it had a longer cable, I'm not sure I'd want them that far apart. It's not a crippling problem, but it is annoying.

"Space is big. You just won't believe how vastly, hugely, mind- bogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think it's a long way down the road to the chemist's, but that's just peanuts to space."
Kinda off topic here, but it really is difficult to grasp the reality of this. When the Milky Way galaxy collides with the Andromeda galaxy in a few billion years, despite a total reshaping of the two spiral galaxies into a single elliptical galaxy, very few stars will actually collide.

Nah, that's the ship building tool. This was a google spreadsheet listing specific components available at specific stations.

Dammit -- in my travels around the web at one point I found a very nice google spreadsheet with outfitting listings by locations. Don't suppose anyone has stumbled onto that? I can't find it again and I seem to have failed to bookmark it. *sigh*
Is it the one that was mentioned in here earlier?
I don't have it bookmarked either but if you look back a few pages you will find it.
I looked through your post and couldn't find a link to a google spreadsheet. I did I miss it?
