Re: Which ships is the best for bounty hinting?

Have you considered the Imperial Courier?

Not as powerful as the Caddy it's true, but it has the same speed and agility as a Cobby and an excellent energy recharge rate.

The 100 ton cargo bay is also quite handy for maximising your profits and keeping the space lanes tidy.

Resisting temptation to link to the Holiday Special...

Still resisting...

Resisted (close call, but it's just too horrific to subject others to).

Re: Is this the oldest ‘calculator’ in the world…

It always fascinates me just how far the Greeks got with technology.

In a similar vein to El Viejo's link, here's MIT's take on Archimedes's Steam Cannon.

Re: Your current employment in your Ooniverse

I'd probably fit into Kak's freelancer option. I'm usually carrying some sort of cargo, it's just that I usually choose to trade in dangerous systems whilst always leaving space in the hold for any goods others might mislay. Of course, these systems often contain spacebars (piloting is thirsty work)...

Re: Writing.

I'd have to go with Night Watch myself, but as Sam Vimes is my favourite character that's not too surprising.

Re: Tales from the spacelanes...

I've been out of the spacelanes for a while (pesky Real Life TM) but this thread reminded me of an old incident from my bounty hunting career. I'd stopped off at a space bar for a quick beverage and perhaps news of a tempting contract in the vicinity and was rather pleased to find a valuable bounty ...

That is strange. Still,it's nice to know I haven't lost all my marbles just yet (I was beginning to doubt my memory for a minute there).

No I didn't (although it was an option). The only authentication was the usual enter the strange shaped letters deal.

Strange, I wasn't asked for a phone number when I set up the gmail account last night. No identity verification was required at all to be honest.

Ah, that would be the problem.

Never mind, it won't hurt to have a secondary email address. Thanks for the help.

Regarding email addresses

I'm not sure if this is related to the recent site hack but my hotmail seems to have been compromised recently. (The passwords were not the same so it's probably a coincidence.) At any rate I've created a new email account but the board refuses to accept it. Is this because the new address is a gmai...
