Days. It's quite obvious, because the following three are hours, minutes, and seconds, as you can easily determine by just watching the seconds progress every second. :wink:

So... if there are thousands of days.. how long is a galactic year? Anyone know? I'm curious. Has anyone ever had Navy bonds mature?

According to Wikipedia, around 230 million years.. which I guess explains why my Navy Bonds haven't matured yet.. :lol:

On the bright side, at least we won't need to buy a new calendar any time soon.. :twisted:

Paying 25% of their prices is worth my initial bond outlay alone, regardless of maturing bonds as I tend to need maintenance and things that go Ka-BOOM! and the discount has more than paid me back for the bonds... Opps wrong thread, thank you Commander McLane!

Are you sure that you're posting in the right thread? We're not really discussing features of a certain OXP here.

At least people are here and talking about stuff, which is more than can be said for the chatroom lately :(

I cant seem to access the chat... i keep saying that i don't have permission to Join #oolite on irc.oftc.net :/
Also it blocks mibbit which is the only client that really works on my computer all the others dont work because of my network :/

Why cant i access it with mibbit? I would really like to start chatting on irc.

Mibbit should be OK as far as I know. Phantorgorth is the main room operator, so I'll ask him to look at this.

On further reflection my last post was a belated reply to

It says im banned...

*** Banned autokilled: Mibbit is no longer supported, please use https://webchat.oftc.net or mail support@oftc.net with questions. (2013-09-28 06:26:46)

I cant really use anything else :/


EDIT: i tried to use https://webchat.oftc.net/ but it said == Disconnected from server: Failed to connect, please connect to https://webirc.oftc.net:8443 and accept the certificate and try again

so i went to that link and it says Unable to make a secure connection to the server. This may be a problem with the server, or it may be requiring a client authentication certificate that you don't have.
Error code: ERR_SSL_PROTOCOL_ERROR


ANOTHER EDIT:

i found this link http://irc.lc/oftc/globaleaks and i just changed the channel to #oolite is this the right place? yes it is :D

Final Edit:
This link works for me (http://irc.lc/oftc/oolite)
:D
