    It is essentially a personal database so you have to actually go to stations (markets) and add that market to your database - that is just two clicks "new market" and "save". From then on every time you dock there your database is updated with the prices etc. (See my note following for better news...) You can update the prices for all markets in your database when you start TCE - you use the "TCE Relay" button then select "update prices" and it syncs your database with it's latest available prices.

    I've been playing around 2yrs now and spent most of it as a member of the Mobius group. Around 3mths ago I had become confident enough in my combat skills to attempt to play in Open and now I play in Open all the time. Honestly I think it is a bit like the present day media who believe that if they repeat something enough people will stupidly take it as the truth. Playing in Open the last three months has shown me that there is virtually no difference in my game experience, try it out you will see.

    They realised Chump was going to win, or better still; they could not win without him, so they chose a side. I have said before: To the Republicans, it does not matter how long Chump lasts, they have their vice president waiting in the wings. In the mean time, it is 'yes Mr President, no Mr president'. Toad eaters until it is time to get the knives out, when they can be sure to take him out.

    As long as it includes instant death to all those who use the wrong side of the mail slot; it is fine by me. I have no idea how i feel about it; all I have heard is just rumours so far.

    Actually it was "New Labour" - otherwise known as pink Tory or blue Labour - a centrist movement put together to court right-wing interests to back a non-Tory government. As one of many that ripped up their membership cards at the Clause IV shamefulness in 1995 I (and many others) feel that they went too far and embraced neo-liberalism too eagerly. (It took the leadership contest of 2010 to bring me back into the party.)

    They should have learnt the lesson from the death of Princess Diana. The only person in that car to survive, was wearing a seat belt, sad really, as it could have been used to inspire a generation to Clunk Click. The Queen is immune to U.K. prosecution. One gripe about that article. It goes on about wasting the emergency call operators time, by using the 999 service to report such things; but does not offer an alternative number to call.

    The Reds have been under the bed for over 70 years; according to some. Why start worrying now. I'm not, because I refuse to live in fear; fear mostly inspired by my own government and their so called allies. Just to keep me in check. Next we will be hearing that Corbyn's rise is due to 'Russian interference' and nothing to do with the fact; he got the attention of the people; young and old alike. That will be the next Tory claim after the next election is called. Vote for Labour and you are voting to become a part of the Russian state.

    I am afraid that "degrees with no value" is a beancounters' argument and I think it awful. However there is a school of thought in the education field that too much reliance on results, league tables, etc has reduced the quality and even the essence of much undergraduate teaching. Of course again, this is the fault of the beancounters too - far too much power is in the hands of non-educators both in university governance and in central government's handling of universities. (I won't enter into the debate about polys becoming the "new wave" {read tsunami} of universities on this subject.) I am of the generation that found university was more about learning how to learn than being taught. My latter career in education showed that there was now much more teaching to get a result for the tables and department performance review.

    Flightsuits are so expensive though, especially those only available singly vs the sets. For the life of me I just don't understand the fascination of tramp-stamps either in-game or R/L.

    Thanks, I've seen a few Fed Navy missions and have heard that those are particularly rewarding, but haven't qualified to take them yet. Something weird happened: I was down on a planet just trying to explore w/SRV, but that was fruitless even though I thought I had seen something of interest from my ship. Anyway, I got assigned a boom data mission out of nowhere and the directions were to meet a particular guy in a named system. I went to the system and there were about 7 ports there, but I couldn't find a way to find that particular guy. I stopped in to the port w/the most services thinking that would be my best bet but he wasn't there (at least in the Missions tab). I'm supposed to meet him then take the data to another system/port, which are specified. Am I missing something? Is there a way to find a guy?? The mission is only worth $36k, so no big deal, but I thought maybe some alliance sought me out for this task - and gee...I want to be liked... Also, I've NEVER been successfully interdicted -...

    You are forgiven, ;) I don't allow automatic updates of the graphics driver, I like to stick with a "strong and stable" version for quite a long time. So as MickyG says it might be your driver updating automatically. good luck

    The issue is that the monarch cannot be prosecuted by or in the courts since those sit in their name. The only redress against the monarch is via parliament - e.g. chopping off old Charlie's head. The police can't ask the CROWN prosecution service to initiate a prosecution, the clue being in the name. Suing for redress in a civil court is similarly barred since all courts in the UK act in the monarch's name. The Magna Carta is a chimera really, so many versions, revocations, repeals, reissues all in the struggle between the Aristos and the Crown and it only applies to England (and the Welsh Principality I suppose). Nowadays it basically doesn't exist in law any more, only a few parts still have status - here is a quote from Wikipedia: I. FIRST, We have granted to God, and by this our present Charter have confirmed, for Us and our Heirs for ever, that the Church of England shall be free, and shall have all her whole Rights and Liberties inviolable. We have granted also, and given to all the...

    Mr Lizard refers to a known "glitch" that causes rare goods to not be sold at a profit if you are running a third-party tool like EDMC. Turn off EDMC (or similar) and reload E D and the correct profits will be available.
