    I always suspected some of my teachers felt like they had some of the old privileges methods of teaching rescinded, now I suspect I know what it was. I remember being caned at primary school a couple of times but by 1985 when I started secondary school I think that was frowned upon, if not outright banned.

    Of course, as I admitted above, my mental arithmetic can be described as ‘not too bad’ at best.

    Actually not met any NPC pirates lately while I have been hauling, I have seen them in super cruise and they have sent me encouraging messages about how well my trip has gone but they haven't interdicted me successfully for some time now I have stopped trying to fight it at full throttle.
    I must just be lucky

    Any failure with npc pirates I have now seems to come directly from the amount of undeserved cockiness shown on my part or getting stuck in a gravity well whilst one cheats and appears out of nowhere in one of those super fast, invisible ships they seem to buy from somewhere.
