Operations in Hek II will be down for maintenance on 23 September 112. Regular downtime will be extended from 0900 to 1100 HST.
During this period the Company will upgrade the planetary Command Center to an Improved Lava Command Center, which will result improvements to overall productivity and employee experience. The soda vending machine at the SS-HIP launchpad office will be fixed as well.
Unfortunately it will be necessary to tear down all corporate structures on the planet and rebuild these from scratch; this shall happen, of course, on budget and on schedule.
We apologise for the inconvenience.
Employees are advised to take all personal items with them as they leave the office for the day.
With kind regards,
(this item contains a hint: Bring a large supply of oxygen with you.)
OOC: Oh my. Was there not an easier way to do this? Why do I have to scrap everything just to upgrade? Tsk, tsk...
Anyway, I think it has been like about a year since I stopped flying regularly, with a couple of fun exceptions. What have I been up to? I have been playing Real Life, baby, like an addict and let me tell you: I HAVE HAD IT.
So I sit down and look at that capsule... and there is so much stuff to do.
I want to fly again.
I want to do new stuff in space.
I would like to, for once, get that next racing season going. There were many interesting ideas, and so little time.
No, I do not think I will be racing again but that's OK.
I want to roleplay.
I think I am definitely going to keep blogging. Stories, fiction, race reports.
You have no idea how long I have been staring at this one post and would really have liked to have much more to say than "I'm back..." but, as they say, just do it and inspiration will come.
