Despite the MBTA's recent crises, I am a big fan of public transportation. Partly because I think there are so many better things to do than drive...

I've decked out the cobra for basic exploration and have reached Acrux again. Everything out this way has been visited before.

From here the plan is to go "up" for about a thousand Ly and see what is out there. I've plotted a route up 260Ly and the stats appear to be getting quite sparse. I may not make it the full 1k this trip.

Well have to try this when I get home...
 
LibreOffice Writer cold startup on my laptop (Toshiba R830; i5-2520M 8GB, running Xubuntu 14.04): LO 4.2 (distro version) starts in 4.5 sec, LO 4.5-master (compiled from source) in 2.5 sec. I am impressed with the improvement. Soon it won't need a splash screen. (Remember why Firefox doesn't have a splash screen: they considered needing one a disgrace.)

(I don't do anything special to compile from source, just git pull;./autogen.sh;make - and the Ubuntu version is managed by +Bjoern Michaelsen of Canonical and LO, so it'll be as good as they can get it. So I'm happy to compare these numbers.)

There was no doubt that I'd be playing the +FireflyOnlineGame. None. Not one iota*. But I just saw the Keep Flying website had crashed and in trying to find out why I found that it was +Wil Wheaton's fault. He just posted this.

I don't know how, but now I'm even more likely to be playing this game. Has Wil has just brought about a mathematical impossibility?

[in this context, what is a goram "iota"?]
This just in from Firefly Online HR: Wil Wheaton has joined the FFO voiceover team and will be giving voice to the male player character.

It appears that the planet Vulcan and the system Vulcan are 2 separate things.  Heading for LHS-3006 instead.

I'm also wondering if we can start an in-game meme.

Anyone else want to push for the #YearOfPeace  in LHS-3006? See if we can't create one system in game where it's 100% safe?
The world is still reeling from the passing of Star Trek actor, Leonard Nimoy, yesterday afternoon. Many in the PC gaming community, both players and developers, have expressed their respects via kind

I don't know if there's anything happening for Leonard Nimoy, but I'm heading for Vulcan anyway...

This will be interesting and entertaining.

Interesting in how Google will determine what is actually fact.

Entertaining in how #CAM and #antivaxxers  will respond to it.

Very nice obituary for Leonard Nimoy from +Nancy Atkinson​ on the +Universe Today blogs​. #LLAP
Leonard Nimoy played a half-alien-half-human character -- Spock -- who seemingly was going to live forever. He survived having his brain removed, being bitten by a deadly alien creature and other h...

This game just keeps getting better. I'm back out at Acrux and have just finished surveying the entire system and was looking for where to go next. Kicked up the galaxy map and stated looking around when I noticed something I'd next seem before. There was a nebula in the map field.

Heading to it I find it is definitely around a particular star so I look it up on the net to find a lot of commanders have already visited and posted the trip to YouTube.

This system is the home of 3 black holes. The thing that impressed me was the game engine goes to the point of bending the light around these gravity wells. :) Very cool.

Getting off the grass

Knowledge, not nature, should drive our economy, writes Shaun Hendy.

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.
