Unrooted Timers and Garbage Collection

Been getting a bunch of these lately. 14:32:09.262 [script.javaScript.unrootedTimer]: ----- WARNING: Timer <OOJSTimer 0x1be6b5f0>{nextTime: 1674.12, one-shot, running, function: anonymous} is being garbage-collected while still running. You must keep a reference to all running timers, or they will s...

Deadpool, in either the movies or the comics. Breaking the "fourth wall" is a good indicator of literary self realization.

Re: Science Fiction Trivia

DREAMSCAPE from 1984 is the most obvious answer. There is a very similar film answer that is more modern, was more expensive to make, and much more confusing but that is best left for someone else's entry.

Re: Griff's Glowroids

You are most welcome. Have gotten fairly good with .plist(s) but still cannot get a JavaScript going from scratch. Spent the past few days trying to write one that would change the Lollipop colors on the Scanner. Failed miserably once the realization hit me that such a script would need a Timer in o...

Re: How to cross VOIDS in Oolite!

What misjump recovery technique are you using? I believe the most important part is fuel, so how to obtain that in interstellar space? Apart from carrying the Pylon Mounted Fuel Tanks mentioned in previous posts INTERSTELLAR HELP probably has the most comprehensive and reliable methods for getting ...

Did not want to be the first to answer once again so played the waiting game, but will, once again, pick the low hanging fruit.

Re: Science Fiction Trivia

Not quite as obscure as originally thought. The Chalice is yours although you should be made aware of the Dinosaur drool that has accumulated in it during this round. Been told that it adds a slightly tangy taste to any Poison present. A good cleaning might be in order before the next round just to ...

Re: Science Fiction Trivia

Been rereading a lot of my ancient paperback sci-fi anthologies lately. The kind with the yellowed pages, that old paper smell, and brittle paper so fragile that you have to be careful as you turn the page lest it comes free from the book's spine. Despite the description the anthology in question is...

Re: Retexture OXPs and their place

This will probably only add to the fire but here goes. This can be either a replacement set or an add on set with a bit of a TWEAK. It does not appear on the page you linked to for some reason but does take advantage of the latest graphic improvements to Oolite. ANOTHER COMMANDER'S & GRIFF'S SHI...
