    Hellcat on G4

    Flipping channels on a commercial break for Children of Dune I came to "Attack of the Show" on G4. They were talking about paper models available online and about a software program to generate them. Demonstrating the software, they were showing the Hellcat model. Here is a link to the...

    Jump Point Defense

    Something that always bothered me about Fleet Action is that the jump points weren't defended. As a strangle point, it seems like they would be highly defensible locations. At the very least you'd expect them to be mined or, if more ambitious, why not move the fleet up to defend them like in...

    Weird way to get killed in WC3

    Was just playing WC3 tonight. Had just brought Flint back from her little rampage in Locanda. I had requested landing clearance while slowing to a stop. My shields and hull were in perfect shape and then BOOM!!! The only explanation I can think of for my demise is that Flint's Longbow...
