Fleet carriers are basically mobile space stations, which means you can fly one to a faraway system and make a new home there for you and any pals who've hitched a ride. Carriers offer many of the services of regular stations, including outfitting, repairs, and buying and selling commodities. However, to keep the thing running you need to pay for its upkeep, and failing to do so can result in the ship being decommissioned and scrapped. … [Read more...] about Travel into deep space with Elite’s massive new fleet carriers, available now

That works out to $0.40 per gigabyte, or higher if calculating the cost based on actual usable space. You lose around 7 percent of advertised storage in Windows due to over-provisioning (reserved space for various features and firmware updates) and how storage space is calculated. In binary, a kilobyte is 1,024 bytes, but driver makers use whole numbers to keep things neat and tidy... and more attractive to buyers. … [Read more...] about Steam sales filling up your PC?
