    I think the "Your system does not have enough physical memory free you have 5.6GB we recommend 8GB" may have killed a lot of perseverance - You crash out of a PU session, but instead of trying again just say to yourself "Ah, I was warned I didn't have enough RAM, i'll have to save up and wait until I can get hold of enough."

    Poof: numbers logging in go through the floor. Hasn't stopped me from retrying whenever a session crashes because i'm bloody minded but I did notice on Fortnightly Frontier Aeloy mentioned she was not able to play because of the note saying there was not enough RAM so I think that may be putting a bunch of participants off...

    Lol, 32GB here :laughing:
    Nope, when playing alone, the long load times from 3.1.2 were discouraging, but when doing multiplayer meetups, going to the bitter end, 4Am. When nobody shows up after an hour, it gets disappointing, but still I hold the highest attending record. I've been there since January 2017, I've missed about 7 or 8 sessions, holidays, party's.

    Actually, no Aurora right now. I gave mine to @Stevetank , haha. But I do have a few other ships. I'm doing ok, haha.
    Oh I blinked a few tears away. But what can you do? It's you life, so you just pick up the pieces and keep going . Besides, I still have the important things...my family, my TESTies, my career, my health. Life is good my friend.
    Wait, I live in Canada, and I BBQ year round. What the heck do you guys do in the winter? Not BBQ? How do you eat? ;)
    I think this quote belongs in another thread, haha.

    Yeah, not sure why you have that quote in here. If you click on the link it takes you to the thread it came from.

    Thanks for the Aurora, Owl! It's got that fancy leather seat and everything :smile: I'm lovin' it.

    Ouukay, Dr. BBQ :smile: I still use the gas grill and its quite fine for us 2,5 people. Light it up, wait 15 minutes, grill 15 minutes, cool down 30 minutes - ready. No coals to dispose of, no ashes etc. Clean, fast thing. ^^

    I recently did some examinations on that topic. Result: the problem is not SC using soooo much RAM. In fact, it doesn't! Max usage is about 10-12 GB, and since 3.1.4 it partially uses <2GB (when in space off from stations and/or planets/moons). The problem foremost are the users who have, lets name it a "environmental app polution problem" in their RAM. They don't care about allll the funny, silent background apps which spam their available resources but blame SC for its big appetite for RAM; though it hasn't.

    Its penis leather! Rub it for some minutes and the Aurora becomes a Freelancer!


    Well, guys and gals, after a maaarvelous weekend this week has started...hm, a little bit rough. First I haven't slept very well - after four hours the night was over for me. I don't know why. Then I kind of crawled through the hours before midday, not really able to do useful things like...working. It was around 1 o'clock when I decided to do something - at least warming up a pizza for lunch. Suddenly the phone rang. On the other end of the line: my wife. I had to pick her up at work, because she had become ill. Okay, no big deal. Presumably a bad cough or fever, something like this. Such things happens fast during days like those, 30°, but in the evenings and morning hours the temperatures go down to 10 - 5 degrees - perfect for getting ill. Anyway: I started the car without asking further questions, drove 20 minutes to her worksite. When she got into the car, she said: "Drive me to the hospital."
    Me, like: ...
    ...
    ...
    So, yeah, I don't want to go into detail, it seems to be a bad inflammation, but that being said: the surprise was on her side. At the same time, our son called me, that his train has been late and that he now has to wait 45 minutes for the next bus and if I could please catch him up by the bus station ("pleeeeeease dad..."). Yeah, well...ah, did I mention that the dog hasn't been outside for the past five hours? Being 14 years old chances are high that she uses the carpet instead of waiting to get out into nature....
    Boy, what a stress. Well finally: wife is still in hospital, son waited 45 minutes for the bus, I finally went home and the doggy was a brave doggy....
    To be continued, its 4 p.m., the day still running, which means: there could be come some more surprises, who knows.....

    She is pregnant?

    All fun by side, I hope that it isn't anything serious and that your wife will get well soon.

    Yeah, last week holidays, we went for 3 days to Bothrop. Saturday Sunday Monday BBQ, Tuesday pauze, Wednesday till Friday to Bothrop, Friday, Saturday and Sunday BBQ again. Saturday morning was like...why does my throat feel so strange, Sunday flat until my wife asked when I would start the BBQ (again) and today work.
    My boss commented with: "Hey, you had a week off and lay in your chair like this???" My reply was like: "if you prefer I also can go back home to bed"

    Wow Sam, that's quite the day. I pray your wife is ok and home soon. Stay strong my friend, and please let know if there's anything else can do to assist.

    Hahaha @marcsand2 reads like your week was all...well, it was BBQ basically, wasn't it? :smile:

    Thanks dear @Blind Owl ! Its an (I have to let translate this via dict.cc) acute pyelonephritis
    Thus nothing serious, but nevertheless nasty stuff. Wifey takes heavy antibiotics and is feeling not very well, but hopefully that she gets well soon.

    Yesterday we've had bank holidays and whole Germany was a rainy mess. Whole Germany? Well, not entirely... One small village of indomitable Gauls still holds out against the rain. In fact, we had a sunny day and 25°C. :beers: Today its even better, and Sunday is said to become 30°C again. :beers::beers::shaved_ice:....:poultry_leg::smile:
    Son wanted to grow some potatoes. So, I just came back in from the garden, where we digged some m², fertilized and put the tubers (or is it "bulbs"?) into the earth. Well, that being said: I was the one sweating like being showered, haha :smile:
    Okay, work's done, potatoes can grow now (hopefully they'll do).

    Now its time for a coffee. Have a nice weekend!
