Favourite tunes?

For me, one of the high points of Star control 2 was the music. I was shocked to hear such good music coming out of my shitty PC speaker, and I think some of the tunes were the best I've heard. I'm curious to know other people's favourite pieces of music, whether it be the music for the various alie...

Stupid volcano

Fuck iceland in the ear. Got to get to the UK this weekend and wondering whether I should try and book a ferry or cross my fingers and hope it clears up by Friday... Anyone else inconvenienced by the giant ash cloud? Apparently last time this volcano erupted it continued for several years - will be ...

Re: Favourite SC race lines.

We did. You did. Yes we can. No. Ooh yeah, that's a goodie. From the Kohr-Ah, I'm also fond of their response when you have the Dynarri on board: The Kohr-Ah say: We sense... something... something ancient... a sickly smell... a chilling wind. My ancestors scream from within their chambers in my mi...

Re: Someone please explain the Forum Vessel.

That's a confusing indication. I would have expected it to be a postcount or seniority indicator. Oh well. Yeah, it's not super intuitive. Originally it was going to be smaller and just dark/light but then we got carried away a bit. Most of the other icons in the theme correspond somewhat well to w...

Re: What are you eating?

You should ask me why we eat eggs for Christmas though, that's quite interesting as well. Please, Lukipela, enlighten us! Duck? Is that common on the emerald island? EDIT: Also, welcome to the new forum. Not as far as I can tell: it was the first time I'd seen it in the supermarket. Maybe it's trad...

I rather liked the Guardian's election posters for Gordo.

Re: Which time zone do you live in?

GMT (currently GMT+1 for daylight savings). All those american abbreviations confuse me as well. The most annoying part of all this time zone business, in my opinion, is that some timezones silently apply DST, yet some others (like CET) have an alternate timezone that is switched to when DST is turn...

Re: What are you eating?

It being Easter, I had lamb yesterday.... Why is lamb traditional for easter? Is it a religion thing or something more mundane? Hate courgette, it's like cucumber, only tastes less like snot and feels like it's decayed in the cooking. Courgette tastes far more like snot than cucumber. Not far off s...
