1. Oh never mind, it was just Polish character encoding that made the a look like an r. Um, is there meant to be an accent over the a?
2. There getting worse than a plague of lemmings you know?
5. Well I know I wouldn't feel safe until I actually landed.
11. Well it's the closest a human can get to a Killie expression. >^.^<
12. I see.
15. You're welcome.
21. Well just try not step over the edge.
22. But you must admit it was predictable.
23. Yet, albeit, notwithstanding, nevertheless or nonetheless could've been better.
24. That's what I'm here for.
25. Well there's no sense multiplying words without reason.
26. The second, since "vast burst" sounds naff.
28. Actually I'd have though of moving the comma to after either. *shrug* And how did I know you would take instinct?
29. No. I just think use of a starting but is only justified for long sentences.
30. Actually I wasn't thinking of intact for the exact same reason - inapropriate. Yes, "in one piece" would be good - very good in fact.
31. Well it better reflects, "So much for trying."
32. No, I don't like their excessive use in semi-formal writing - but the point wasn't getting rid of elipsis, it was to better tie the fact that he stopped mid-strike to stare at the screen in surprise. Aw heck, it's your story.
33. "Started back" is perfectly alright and better than "started again" in my opinion...Of course that's all it is - an opinion.
34. Oh, it's a system. I thought you meant a ship.
Would it have been more curious if I had said it was your worst chapter to date?
The combat scene was more than adequate. It was fitting, mainly due to the feeling of impatience with which they neared the jump point.
About the poetry: In that case, you really need to have a word with those voices in your head - set them straight - let 'em know who's boss.
Dammit, I knew I should have put on that raincoat when I went out to lunch. But no, it was just a little bit of rain.
Klaus: Nah, Privateer isn't my specialty. I know very little of it; Matrix could probably do it better - if he wanted to.
1. Yes, probably
. I just type Deja Vu in, and let Word decide. I know, I probably shouldn't trust Word, but...
2. I'll keep that in mind, but I can't promise anything
5. Well, Weaver's slightly different.
21. I'll try not to.
22. Yes, but I don't mind.
23. Well, they're all very nice words and all that, but I don't think they really fit.
26. Would it be all right if I changed that second out to forth?
29. Next you'll be telling me that sentences shouldn't start with and
30. Ok. Mind you, that's also not quite true, but it gets the point across.
31. Perhaps, yes.
32. Well, I can't let you win them all, Mac
. Regardless of the reasons, in this particular case I prefer the way it is. It just seems... better. Dunno.
33. I know that started again doesn't sound quite right. But started back suggests that they just came from there, and are now going back.
34. All this talk of the Morpheus System, and you thought it was a ship?
Worst? Well, it would be just as curious, not more curious
Well, I'm glad the combat scene was fitting. And now, I guess I'd better get on with the next - and last - one.
The voices told me to shut up and do as I'm told
You mean I'd do a better job than you? I seriously doubt that. Even though you don't have the spirit of a merchant/rogue, you know much more about Privateer than I do. But you guys have given me an idea...of course I really should finish Recall first.
<BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Arial">quote:</font><HR>Touche?<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>
Yes. As in, "I yield."
2. It's probably just another punctuation phase.
22. As long as that's the desired effect.
23. Whatever - the word for all occasions.
26. Hmm. Yeah, I guess so.
29. How did you guess?
32. I don't intend to win them all...especially in Proving Grounds.
34. Aw heck, how would I know? I've only visited Fariss, Humboldt, Clarke and Potter quadrants.
I suggest you threaten to put your head in a vice if the voices in there act up again.
Well, don't forget that you're the one specialising in Steltek. And the Priv plot would almost have to be reduced to be an interesting book; so, you have an advantage there, rather. Besides, I'm sure you'd enjoy describing the Steltek base... that is, if you haven't already planned doing that elsewhere
Oh, and there's nothing wrong with writing two or three or four stories at the same time
29. Oh, another one of those instinct things
32. Only because you couldn't
. Hmm, I wonder if I could beat you in the Dralthi by now. As I recall, I failed miserably last time
34. And Vega Sector, even if you're still in Kurasawa
The voices know me too well
. They know that I wouldn't do that. But they've become more cooperative lately. Currently, they're telling me various Kilrathi words, and what they mean

I've actually flown a Ferret with one mass driver several times. Usually, it's when I re-play WC2 after a long break, and find myself crashing into a Sartha or two (you can get a lot of kills that way
Yes, in fact you can almost fire indefinitely. Unfortunately, it's not that easy to lose one gun. I have, also, flown the Epee with one gun left. I get more kills that way. Drain vs recharge rate almost equal.
<BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Arial">quote:</font><HR>Originally posted by Quarto: Actually, what I meant was that you can get a lot of kills by crashing into people
. Generally speaking, I still prefer to keep both my guns
Not in an Epee. At any rate, I did slam to a lot of Sartha. Three at the most, if they're slightly damaged. I did mention in another topic that I tried ramming a Fralthra with a Ferret.
