"We are the few who dare: we brothers and sisters who ride the Witch-space corridors of Faraway. We turn the wheels of industry, moving the goods that power a heaven-spanning society of worlds. We pilot ships named for snakes—Asps, Cobras, Pythons, Anacondas—and on our backs is the tripartite hegemony of man built.

We fly. We fight. We trade. We explore. Under the unblinking gaze of these naked stars do we brave the black. We do it for fortune, for fame, for glory—for the thrill of the hunt, or maybe just because to sit at home on a station is to be ordinary, and we are never that.

These are our stories.

Begin at the beginning."
Fangs, an unofficial Noir-inspired Elite: Dangerous web comic by Lee Hutchinson.

Crashed and burned.  13k7LY from Sol.  Next run is going straight for Sag A*.  If I get there in good shape I'll head for SS433 on the way back in. This beast was the thing that got me too.  Jumped in, set a course to scoop and jumped into the external camera for a photo op.  When I reentered the ship I was at 173% heat. Adjusted course, full thrust. Heat still climbing.  Set course to jump. Target obscured. This this was filling half the sky. Considered dropping out of supercruise and jettisoning the heat sinks. As the thought finished forming I saw them get fried. Lost most of my internal systems before finally getting a jump target that was in view.

Jumped out, crossed fingers, arrived at the target at 370% heat and detonated. It took a long time to register though and then I got the Connection Lost message.

Rejoined the game and found myself at that same system I'd escaped to with 18% hull integrity. Could not believe my luck. Kept going towards SS433 but something finally registered. After another 1k5LY I got another Connection Lost. When I rejoined the game this time I had the "you were destroyed" message and the option to rebuy was offered.

So, into the black yet again.

Hey all,

I was just about to post a module link to an empty circle called "Read Later" which is kind of self explanatory. Thought there may be a better way to do that though. I've created a Modules board for people to post to instead. I figure if any of us are bookmarking a module for later use sharing that could help others. It also gives others the opportunity to comment and maybe suggest better options.

Spam accounts are getting better at getting around Mollum and other CAPTCHA based systems. This is something Ju and I are looking at using on a couple of sites to help investigating these accounts.

I was a little surprised that this detail wasn't already being tracked in Drupal.

This is the reason we vaccinate, not just for ourselves but for those that can't.
You’d think that, after a thousand blood tests, multiple IVs, and my fortnightly autoimmune stab, I’d be pretty much impervious to needles.

Moana Lodge is easily in the top 3 places I've stayed yet. It's likely first on that short list too. The view from my room out over the shore is great and with it being the end of the off season they upgraded me to a private room. There was another discount on top of that that was substantial due to the walk I'm on. The facilities are clean and really good. Full kitchen, huge fridge & freezer. Good sized dinning area and a public lounge that is better than most of the flats I've lived in. John and Helen are easy to talk to and seem quite friendly. John also used to be a member of the local Alpine Club and knows a lot about the tramping in the area.
