I agree there is no point wasting a Special on autoloader for ballistics on insta-repair ships.  They will NEVER survive to the second salvo

Greatly underestimates the ability to hit Tier 3.  I've been trying for Tier 3 weeklies for a year and I finally gave up and coined it.  That means hitting a 40 base TWENTY times to get to Tier 3.  That's not easy in 3 days.  I tried to do it with only 27s and 34s but my god it took all freaking day long to get 1 million.
Uranium is needed for Retrofits, Outpost 6, and Level 11 buildings. Uranium has been difficult to get in this game... or HAS IT? I recently saw a Level 49 player begging in comms for someone to prep a Level 62 dredge for ...

8 marauder fleets autoing 27s for instant repair will get you to tier 4 every week. Takes a day to build each fleet. Then book mark every 27 in your sector and nearby sectors as they generally spawn in the same place. After you've built the marauders you can build bigger fleets that you drive to get points quicker.

Invoice 24284: MAR answered the phone after hours (I think it was 7PM) when our freezer died and they were here by 1PM the next day. The technician was courteous, arrived on time, and able to diagnose the bad starter just from listening to the freezer. Unfortunately, our unit was too old to be repaired economically and the parts weren't in stock but it was well worth the diagnostic fee and I would surely do it again the same way. Since the freezer was more than 30 years old and we didn't tell them the make/model in advance, I am not surprised that parts weren't on hand.

The lunch specials are very inexpensive, a full-size meal for about $7.95. Dinners have a wide variety of tasty combinations. My wife especiallly loves the Sesame Pork. We have scheduled New Years Eve dinner there on more than one occassion and they can comfortably seat about 12. More than that, I woud try a different venue. The service is always fast, the food is hot and fresh. Your choice of white or brown rice (no extra cost). I've never had them make a mistake and I have been eating there for at least a decade regularly. I agree its not SanFrancisco Chinese cuisine, but nothing outside California is. For Michigan, its as good as it gets.

In the middle of 1000 mile roadtrip, any breakdown is bound to be scary. We were headed down the Mass Pike when we pulled off for gas at the station next door to Brooks Motors. A passing mechanic noticed a large pool of liquid seeping out from undernearth my 2005 Taurus. He said it looked like a burst hose and he could get someone to look at it in 30 minutes. We took his word for it, went to lunch, and they repaired what was eventually found to be a burst hose clamp/connector and we were back on the Pike in a couple hours. Mechanics and owner were courteous and explained all the details to us. Could not have asked for better luck or better service. If we had run out of coolant on the Pike it could have been the end of my engine or worse.
