Sent a friend request to you!
I've actually built up a fair number of bookmarks to trading sites and utilities if you want some links to them.

@Hermit - I'm not going to embarrass you by answering that!


Last night was spent combining the Oculus Rift with VoiceAttack and the HCS "Astra" Voice Pack.
I have say it all added up to a pretty mind blowing experience!

I'm so glad I didn't have the cash for either the Oculus or Elite when they were Kickstartered. I'd have had to give up everything else :shock:

ooh didn't realise CTRL-ALT-DEL was still running, last I saw of it he'd created an AI robot from his x-box.

The great thing with the Oculus is that it goes up in value the minute you buy one. People were selling their mk1 to buy the mk2 and making a profit! It seems to come down to the fact there is a long waiting list for them (I think I had to wait 3 months) so people will pay silly money just to have one right now!

Here's a cheaper option... http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/New-Google-Ca ... 3a9f123f95

I'm waiting for the Blue Peter version of that one. I've got all my old toilet rolls, cornflake packets and "sticky-back plastic" at the ready for when they do.

Looks like the beta of the Mac version's coming out at the end of the month:

They've recently released the Wings feature for it. I haven't used it, though, because I've no friends :P

So I picked this up today, tried my hand at the training, which I was rubbish at, then tried the real game, only missions available were land based ones in systems to far for me to travel to, couldn't work out the trading, and so just took off, ended up in a dog fight with 4 pirates...though think they may have been players against some police ships or something, I lasted around 40 seconds before dying...feel like I was ripped off to be honest.
