Pilot Log

After Oberothton informed me about GrimGriz’ attack in Omni IV I tried to get up to date about the recent incidents in and around Hyperial.

Not only was it painful to read that the GenMod laboratory (a. k. a. Phosphorous Nanoproducer) was fully repaired. But to be told that instead of taking up arms, Quantar pilots even helped to repair that building made me speechless.

Brother Ambrosius did his best to undo the work, but shamefully he was on his own and had to abort his mission near completion.

When dusting off my bomber today I thought: Well – take 6 nukes and finish off that damn building. So I started my tour from QC to Hyperial sector, but had to see that another Quantar pilot named DUBERANGER was just about to finish repairs again.

Fortunately he seemed to celebrate his efforts at the local bars so I took the opportunity for my bombing run. It took me 7 runs, many reloads and severe PR hits but finally after 20 nukes the building collapsed into space debris – hopefully once and for all.

Hamalza’ab!

I was reading with disgust how Grimgriz, Me.1 and Imorg fixed that Lab building and figured I needed to do something about it.  After cleaning up some blue beacons in Quantar space I headed to Eye of Roh station to get our “Boomer.”  Then headed to QC to load up with Nukes — three on the racks and six in the hold.Lab Attack

Imorg was on duty somewhere, so I offered him the opportunity to help me out to repent for his sins.  But he was going on about “no proof it was a lab” and so forth.  I think that boy is a little slow.

So I headed out on my own to do some damage, fully expecting Imorg or Grimgriz to try to interdict.  That did not happen so it was a long, boring run.  I made three bombing runs, headed back to KH to reload, and then made 3 more.  Unfortunately, it left me 2 nukes short of finishing off the building.

I guess I’ll be back tomorrow.

This was a DSS2 in excellent condition, found in Lesser Locks.  I recovered a dataset that was in hexadecimal:

Finally got it.  Looking at it I was originally thinking it was Base64 image or audio. It was easy to rule out binary, hex, octal and ascii.  It didn’t strike me until yesterday to try Base32! Feeling very proud of myself that I got this before Hammer, lol.

Greîpgs.

Heaš8sœd·Df/–ast night’s meeting, we tabled several issues, afte÷ß8ÿing over some of the basics.

To give a short synopsis of l߃Ҏ|ight’s meeting:

Rep2tìntatives from over 20 different squads were on hand to he>×Žšs proposal, with 17 people commenting.

The synopsis.

TRIR’s situation, with a slashe‚È‘dget, and their research at a standstill was universally regardÞ!Ñ•”QØxÑ=HÛµ£m—N2ate of affairs. Also unacceptable was the plan proposed by Prefect Versalus, as it would move TRI’s research department into the hands of one faction, Octavius. With that in mind, I propose that a consortium be formed to privatize TRIR. The estimates gi´½Éꎥthe Prefect called for a 4 to 6 billion credit investment. Spread among even the 20 squads in attendance, and averaging the needed funds at 5 billion, that adds up to a 250 million creþM‹~nvestment per SQUAD, not per pilot. With further involvement by even more squads, this nuöÊ» Œˆld be reduced eve]byŒfó`¡.$

There was a whole lot of corruption at the end that I just deleted.  Unfortunately this isn’t dated, but it mentions Prefect Versalus, which, based on TRI Databank, probably places it prior to 105.
