    Nah half of those connections were me auto/afk rolling for antag before it was banned, we are doing ok.
    /s

    I wouldnt call it a new hippie golden age yet, maybe middleish/silver age, based on how i recall previous years of this server.

    I'd say we're somewhere between the nickel and tungsten ages at the moment actually.

    we're depleted uranium actually

    Reprocessed uranium (RepU) is the uranium recovered from nuclear reprocessing, as done commercially in France, the UK and Japan and by nuclear weapons states' military plutonium production programs. This uranium actually makes up the bulk of the material separated during reprocessing. Commercial LWR spent nuclear fuel contains on average (excluding cladding) only four percent plutonium, minor actinides and fission products by weight. Reuse of reprocessed uranium has not been common because of low prices in the uranium market of recent decades, and because it contains undesirable isotopes of uranium.

    Isotopic composition of reprocessed uranium[1]
    Isotope Proportion Characteristics
    uranium-238 98.5% Fertile material
    uranium-237 0% Around 0.001% at discharge, but half-life only 1 week.
    Produces soluble, long-lived neptunium-237 which is hard
    to contain in a geological repository.
    uranium-236 0.4%-0.6% Neither fissile nor fertile. Affects reactivity.
    uranium-235 0.5%-1.0% Fissile material
    uranium-234 >0.02% Fertile material but can affect reactivity differently [2]
    uranium-233 trace Fissile material
    uranium-232 trace Decay product thallium-208 emits strong gamma radiation making handling difficult
    As of April 2007, uranium prices had begun to rise again, and if the price becomes high enough, it is possible that reprocessed uranium will be re-enriched and reused. A higher enrichment level will be required to compensate for the 236U which is lighter than 238U and therefore will concentrate in the enriched product.[3] Also, if fast breeder reactors ever come into commercial use, reprocessed uranium, like depleted uranium, will be usable in their breeding blankets.

    There have been some studies involving the use of reprocessed uranium in CANDU reactors. CANDU is designed to use natural uranium as fuel; the U-235 content remaining in spent PWR/BWR fuel is typically greater than that found in natural uranium, which is about 0.72% U-235, allowing the re-enrichment step to be skipped. Fuel cycle tests also have included the DUPIC (Direct Use of spent PWR fuel In CANDU) fuel cycle, where used fuel from a Pressurized Water Reactor (PWR) is packaged into a CANDU fuel bundle with only physical reprocessing (cut into pieces) but no chemical reprocessing.[4]

    we contribute to the server by playing on it and voicing our opinion on if we like or dislike certain changes
    it's honestly really amusing to see you pop up out of nowhere whenever someone (a lot of people) vocalize their dislike of the coders
    also how the fuck are you on a "code-freeze", it's not like any of you have made any significant or decent changes over what, the last last.. 3 months?
    rebasing again, most likely resetting the server back to absolute shit full of bugs, not to mention itll prob drop what, smack dab in the middle of summer? when hippie is at its most popular? very likely to be filled with bugs, server resets, and server crashes. i'm sure the players will love that!

    its like i'm watching the Obama administration over the last 8 years condensed into 3 months
