Moon's rotation around its own axis and rotation around Earth both take same amount of time, and as a result same side of the Moon is always visible from Earth.They DO work all the time.spankybus said:Yes, they literally work...half the time? Was I being too generous? :-)You DO know that solar panels on the dark side of the moon are fully functional, do you not?
Just because WE cannot see that side does not stop the sun shining on it most of the time ;-)
If the sun does not shine, they get a lot of reflected light from Earth.
You can also place them in a crater near the pole on the dark side. 100 % illumination.
Like SQ42 ... do it the smart way ... and it works. 100 % of the time. At optimal performance. Even if it takes some time to get there. Like the solar panels on the lunar poles on the rim of a dark side crater.
Even if they would share some estimated date, it would mean nothing.Kyleran said:I doubt they'll provide a target delivery date in December.I understand it will be announced in Decemberrpmcmurphy said:In many ways it's a surprisingly reserved statement about Squadron 42.
Where does this put the release date?
--> "....and share our roadmap for its completion."
Yes, quite a reserved statement. That is why I think this sounds more like Erin Roberts, not Chris Roberts. Has a factual, realistic undertone, less of an exuberant tone.
Sharing the roadmap to completion sounds more like a list of outstanding features and tasks and the order they'll be worked on.
Perhaps I've been jaded by CUs endless map to beta with no actual dates.
I guess we'll find out soon.
If you buy a SSD, then it's easy enough to store most important information on that SSD and keep the old disk for storing less important stuff.Quizzical said:Getting an SSD strikes me as most of the point of this upgrade. Replacing an eight year old hard drive is also a good idea, as by now it's living on borrowed time and should not be relied upon. If you continue to use the old hard drive, make sure it's only for things where it wouldn't be terribly bothersome if it abruptly died and the data was unrecoverable.
edit: "Even with 3.0, it is pretty clear it's missing tons of stuff promoted as a part of it in official statements last year." What tons of stuff is it missing?
What do you think cumulative means?gervaise1 said:@Vrika What the press release says is 10M cumulative players as of today - which includes those playing using a trial account.Vrika said:@SBFord
The number for FF XIV is 10 million cumulative accounts, with trial accounts included.
WoW had more than 100 million accounts back in December 2013:
You should edit the WoW comparison in article accordingly, or remove the comparison completely.
It doesn't say they have passed 10M total accounts - that number is presumably higher.
So the comparison with WoW's 12M is accurate-ish. Except FFXIV's includes trial acounts (but as I pointed out in my post above includes at least 6M subs) whereas WoW's 12M doesn't include people on a trial to level 20.
The equivalent ESO number, for example, would be 7M - as last announced. (Unless someone has seen them give out a higher number).
