Evochron Alliance Unveiled

The Evochron Alliance Website (thanks Frans) reveals the next installment in the Star Wraith/Evochron series of space combat games. Here's a bit:
Evochron Alliance is the sequel to Evochron, which introduced space-sim fans to a diverse universe of interactive real-time sc-fi gameplay with several new and unique elements. Set in a newly colonized area of space, Evochron Alliance continues where the original left off and adds a single player campaign involving an elusive alien race known as the Vonari. As a freelance mercenary, you will soon be called upon to protect the Alliance territories and confront the Vonari where they live.

The sequel includes many new features requested by the players, including revised graphics, shipyard construction system, new hidden benefits, new weapons, new technology, custom mission designing, enhanced custom system designing, and more.

Out of the Blue

Struggled for hours this morning with a BSoD on reboot that persisted past all logical efforts to isolate or repair it. It finally occurred to me that the only thing that had changed was a flash card was now in a slot on the printer. As unlikely as that sounds as a potential cause for my machine to crash, I was out of options enough to try it, and, unlikely or not, it worked.

Oh those nutty computers!
