Re: [WIP] UPS Courier oxp 1.9 wip3

WOW! :P :P :P I just captured Eric Walch! The miscreant apparently ransacked a UPS courier and I was 'requested' to relieve the 'good' commander and his trusty Boa of his ill-gotten gains. Mission successfully completed after forcing the 'good' Captain to jump ship first and scooping him. Is this th...

Re: Science Fiction Trivia

We have a winner!!!! :) :D :) :D :) :D :) :D :) :D The CismoFiCo has just left for a return flight to you! I didn't touch the evil juice, because ... well .... my uncle, you see? Mind you, it does seem to corrode the jug so it might be best if you finish it off quickly. And thanks for your concerns ...

Re: Partwork story: Old Ships Are the Best! (Take 2)

So true, Cody, so true. :( We will still try, of course. But I will gove no guarantees regarding the below. :wink: :D ====== Gepo pressed the buzzer on the wall next to the door and wondered again what had been so important that Meddelfurt had to go to his room on the starbase rather than the Rose. ...

Re: Partwork story: Old Ships Are the Best! (Take 2)

Ahhhh! Well spotted, that man!!! Ok, I amended it. I should really have 'Ur-that-shall-be-obeyed-at-all-times do the proof reading. I read through it several times, picked out some typo's but she is a lot better at finding faults than I am. (secret of a good marriage? :wink:) Anyway, part three shou...

Re: [WIP] UPS Courier oxp 1.9 wip3

Hey Spara. I have just found an exception error originating from the latest UPS courier version in the download manager (1.8.4). The error came about after rescuing a slave and returning him to his home world. It is: Exception: Error: Cannot set property gem-stones of instance of Manifest to invalid...

Re: Science Fiction Trivia

Ahhh, I see. I guess that's why I only use the shop-bought stuff. The gun-cotton wasn't my idea, by the way. My uncle once used it in his mix, took a sniff and promptly keeled over. Anyway. Being 'sent to Coventry' in the UK means being shunned or ostracised. Who, according to Robert A. Heinlein, we...

Re: Partwork story: Old Ships Are the Best! (Take 2)

Thanks Clym! I hope I can keep the interest up. Don't expect Gepo to be a hero, though. I intend him to be like a beach ball that is blown all over the water, never landing anywhere for more than a couple of seconds, to be mercilessly dragged away again. He'll be battered, for sure. Bruised, undoubt...

Re: Science Fiction Trivia

You are soooo right, Spud. :) :D :) :D :) :D And glad to have been of service! :D I enjoyed that story as part of 'The Early Asimov' collection, which was even more enjoyable since he explained the stories and how he came to write them in the first place! And to think that that story was first publi...

Re: Pirate Coves

Hi All! After a previous report of a weird attacking pattern, posted here and with kind assistance from A_C, I was able to do some quick searching and found that the issue mentioned was indeed linked to pirate coves. I found this out by lanching into a system, clearing the Aegis and then spawning a ...
