Re: Coming Up On 15 Years

Just brushing off the dust, having a look around, and finding Artaud with a feather duster. A three-year hiatus even on this thread. Pretty quiet here too.

Re: An Open Letter to the PBW Community

We should take the opportunity to learn from the pain of this event. One of my old professors, who once worked in the insurance industry used to tell us: "It's not if you're going to have a...

Re: PBW status

If she's anything like the hardware guys I know, once she gets it, it won't take long to form an opinion. The reason I asked was because I'd like to make a small donation toward the repair,...

Re: PBW status

Are there problems beyond the loss of game information? Is there hardware that needs to be replaced?

Re: Problems with Racial traits

It's a matter of perspective. The guy asking the original question may get his answer a little quicker by posting in multiple threads. However, a post is most useful to the community at large if it...

Re: Planet and Atmosphere Percentages

That clears it up some. I was trying to take an omnipresent view, when the data makes better sense viewed through the eyes of one race at a time.

Re: A question about satellites

If I understand this correctly, mining with a satellite is wasteful because the sector's resources are depleted at the same rate whether the vessel doing the mining uses one robo-miner or several at...

Re: AI and stellar manipulation

I've seen AIs open warp points as well. But they tend to pick a single system and do their warp opening from there. There was one time when an AI scared me this way. I eventually decided that the...

Re: Planet and Atmosphere Percentages

Okay. The analysis of rock, ice, & gas planets is about what I would expect to find. But, continuing on to analyze the various quadrants, in each case it includes figures for gas planets with no...

Re: Planet and Atmosphere Percentages

This was indeed a SEIV question. The program you mention does exactly what?

I'm not trying to analyze any particular game data. I know that rock planets are more common than ice planets, and...

Re: Forum Chat Bar & Grill

In order to start a scrap over American beer, you first need to make a statement where we disagree. Most of the people I see out and about any more are drinking light beer. If you ask me, they...

Potion Planet and Atmosphere Percentages

Somewhere, once upon a time, I ran across a post that mentioned the approximate percentages of rock, ice, and gas planets that the map generator normally creates. Naturally, I can't locate the post....

Re: The Future of Space Empires IV

Hi guys. Everything sure turned blue around here since my last visit.

At first glance, when I saw the title of this thread, my immediate reaction was "Oh no!" But when I realized it was just one...

Re: OT: CD ROM Problem

No. The second hard drive got the slot. But I do plan to take the computer in to have some RAM added. They might be willing to do an experiment for me, considering I bought both drives from them. ...

Re: Semi Finals 1st Round Sci Fi Ladies

Minor foul here...
The Kim Bassinger in this picture is good bit older than the Kim from "Step Mother was an Alien." I saw that movie. Kim in that red dress. Gulp.

All right. I'll go quietly.

Re: OT, Submit your Canidates for Fox of Sci-Fi Po

Okay. If retro is allowed, Jane Fonda was quite a babe in her day (Barbarella). Still like Terry Farrell and Erin Grey.

We can do retro here, can't we Mac?...
