Sorry it's been a little while since I wrote last, not too much to report. I found a compromised nav beacon in an anarchy system, and I've been killing pirates... so... many... pirates. I take my collector limpets with me, and pick up the materials they drop, and use those to make my battleconda (Dreamer) better, and then go collect more. I'm slowly hemorrhaging money, since Anaconda repairs are expensive, and the bounties I earn often don't cover the repair costs, but my skill (and ship) are improving, so it's starting to even out. I'm at a point where most of the materials they drop I'm full on, so I need to visit a material trader soon, so I can keep shooting the pirates. It's pretty enjoyable work, and I'm getting a nice ship out of it, and occasionally, it gets REALLY interesting (gliding back into dock with a blown canopy and my whole ship sparking at me was... interesting (my wallet didn't think so though).
