Damn - the last few days has seen a general meltdown in the subspace communication net used by the pod captains. Things have stabilised with CONCORD looking into it. Am in OSMEDEN at the moment as there are a number of agents who are after me. The new firmware upgrades were applied to the blackstar and the crew are quite positive over it. We'll find out soon enough as pirate activity is increasing along the Placid boundaries and there are jobs aplenty.
The preparation for the POS is going well though Lionsan lost his mining barge on the account that he was chatting to one of his numerous female companions and got distracted.
At least he and his crew got out ok.
