I love the local chat window, it's entertaining while being a great early warning device as well. The tears you can get from your prey are delicious when they start spamming local. That is until a bunch of damn Aussies come in!
Haha I kid. I bumped into one of my old cohorts and long time readers Suicidal Pancake and lilfleeb the other day as they roamed through my home system! It's been over a year since I saw those Australian nut jobs and it's great To hear they now only live 4 jumps away! No doubt I'll be jumping across to fly with them on occasion.
Hopefully I'll see you guys soon! Pancakes blog is also on my listing so go check it out ;) it's the Quantum Horizon one!
