Really good. Part 2, also excellent (and won some kinda award)
Sooo... I've been reading. Everything about the two ships that I can find, and I feel like it comes down to this.
The Cat will take a beating and can do a little bit of punching back... but, it's just a container truck. One container. That's it. It also seats 5, so... parties?
The Starfarer is wussy enough that it probably shouldn't be flown anywhere alone, but it can hold 75 TONS of cargo... nearly 4 times that of the Cat, even without upgrade modules. It's a long-haul, triple trailer truck with the extra tall boxes that'll get you stuck on low bridges.
I can't decide. The Starfarer could be amazing, especially if it's able to be fully converted for solid storage (while fuel is neat, I don't know how much of it I'd be running outside of fleet operations) but the caterpillar looks like it's the constellations dirty little brother who got a big backpack for Christmas.
Maybe I should just get a connie. *sigh* INDECISION.

Hey, for those of you who have pre-ordered X-Rebirth (or will be buying it) lets schedule some hangout time in the Mumble Star Citizen channel the night of release. Share your wisdom, your insight, your optimal trade routes.
When : 5PM PST until ... *singing* ALL NIIIIGHT LOONGG
Where : Mumble
Who : You.
What : Playin' some X-Rebirth and just hangin' out.
Drim has spent the last 6 months doing a fantastic job of pushing the SWTOR division to new heights. With member activity in SWTOR reaching higher than any time since launch, the division is healthy and growing. Members are knocking out progression content and beginning to make known TG's presence on the PvP battlefield. The constant work of at DL is both rewarding and draining and one can only push so long. Drim has decided to step down. Drim, I speak for your division and for the entire member base when I thank you for your service. I know you will continue to serve, title free, and I look forward to your continued activity to help expand TG's greatness.
With Drim's retirement, I've selected Jiraxis to the post of Division Lead for SWTOR and member of the Council. Jiraxis is a constant force in SWTOR (check mumble... I'm pretty sure he doesn't sleep) and will continue to grow and develop the division. Join me in welcoming him to the role and encouraging him as he leads SWTOR into its next chapter.

Rift's had two runs as a Division now, and both were great. Excellent times at launch, excellent times surrounding the rebirth with the expansion, but as with all games as of late, interest wanes and as a member body, we're no longer as interested in Rift. By that, the decision has been made to close our Rift Division.
However, we do have a few dedicated members still enjoying Rift on a weekly basis, and based on that we've decided to announce Rift as a Squad! Pie's service thus far as head of the Rift Division has prepared her well for the role of Squad Leader and it's my joy to announce her appointment to that role.
My thanks to Pie for all the work she's done and the work she'll continue to do for the Division and the guild as a whole. Her presence on the council has be a true blessing and will be missed, but I'm excited for her to continue at the helm of her group. She has much love guild wide, but especially within the new Rift Squad.
As one sun sets, it's exciting to see another rise. It is with great joy I announce the worst kept secret of the past month and announce FFXIV as our newest Division.
Kyuzo's done a great job getting things off the ground as a Squad. When he and Jaedan and I first talked a couple months back we all figured "yea, this'll make a good squad" because we had a few people interested in it and figured it'd make for a good diversion. The first interest meeting attracted more than 30 people and surprised everyone.
On that note, I'm please to announce that Kyuzo will be taking headship of the division as the Division Lead. Join me in congratulating him and wishing he and the entire FFXIV Division the best of luck in their adventures!

The creation of a division is a GL's most sacred duty, and the dissolution of one a GL's most somber. It is with bagpipes at sunset that I make today's announcement that the longest running Division in the history of our great guild has come to an end.
World of Warcraft has forever changed the MMORPG landscape. Popularizing the genre and taking subscription based gaming from niche to mass audience was huge. With its growth, the leadership of TG latched on and led us into Azeroth for fun and valor. Many current members found TG through WoW and many members recall great times.
WoW has lasted through numerous leadership changes both for the division and the guild as a whole. While it's ebbed and flowed with the population of the game and server, it's always been there. Lately however, not only has our membership has moved on to other games, but the rest of the world as well. WoW's sub numbers in North America have dropped substantially and the server we're on is a ghost town.
Two weeks ago, Mal announced his intention to step down as the Division Leader of WoW. Mal has been a rock, leading that division for more than two years. Prior to that, he was WoW's greatest recruiter, shaping that division through applicants, growing the division and TG. Since taking the post, Mal has seen the change over of 4 GLs and for the duration he remained at the help of the game, and division that he loves.
Housekeeping : The retirement of the WoW Division and return to general membership of the WoW leadership structure is immediate. The entirely of the WoW Division's forum structure will be placed in the Other Games's Archive folder.
It is with pride that I'm able to present him with the Mark of Leadership. An honor bestowed to Guardians who distinguish themselves, even amongst fellow leaders, as a person worthy of being followed. If its for Mal's solid commitment to his division and for his excellence in recruitment that we present him with this.
Malcynn, I speak for everyone when I say that thank you is not a robust enough phrase to express our gratitude for your service.
Join me in thanking Mal, and for our former members of the WoW Division, take a moment and share a fond memory of your time there.

This was the trivia that was used to seed our Magic tourney for the PAX weekend. I thought it was a pretty good general geek trivia, one that no one there would be able to 100% because of the variety of topics but that everyone would have a pretty good shot at enjoying. I made this trivia list and all but 2 of these were things I knew off the cuff... #1 and #11 being the ones I had to look up, the bonus on #13 being a surprise I found while looking for the spelling for #12.
Be honest, no internets/google and don't look at the spoiler until you've done your answers (and don't post your answers either). Let us know what score you got. Jag won with 9 points, which included a complete guess on #1 because he knows nothing about magic.
So... without further adoo...
1. In what year was the original set (Alpha) of Magic the Gathering printed?
2. What was Luke Skywalker’s last name in the early versions of the script?
3. What company invented the mouse but decided not to patent it?
4. What material was used for the case on the original Apple computer?
5. How old was Bilbo Baggins when Frodo began his journey? (based on the timing provided by the movie)
6. According to Peregrin Took, what meal comes after breakfast?
7. Now many Gigawatts of power are required for time travel?
8. What is the Holy Grail made of, according to Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade?
9. What comes next? 4, 8, 15, 16, 23, ____
10. Who shot first?
12. What was the name of the ship in The Matrix?
- One bonus point if you spelled it right without looking
13. What does the highly nutritive food does the crew of that ship (Question 12) consumes closely resemble?
- Two bonus points if you know what it was renamed to for the German version of the film.
14. How many bits are in a gigabyte?
