  Star Citizen by Chris Roberts
News from Stratus It's been a while since we've seen a really cool Space Sim, and I am pleased to announce Star Citizen and Squadron 42 from the maker of Wing Commander, Freelancer, and many other cool PC games: Chris Roberts. Completely crowdfunded, to avoid any publisher or big company's agenda, Star Citizen is anticipated to launch in November 2014, with Alpha and Beta versions available to backers at undetermined dates. Please visit their website, at www.robertsspaceindustries.com/about-the-game/ . And if you are a gaming programmer, they are hiring for some positions at www.cloudimperiumgames.com .

Check out this awesome intro-video with in-game graphics:

  IRC Back up & Network Changes
News from Stratus
I would like to appraise you of some changes in the StarWars-IRC Network (SWIRC). The network is owned and maintained by Jeff Turkstra. The SWRebellion Network, which assumed management of the network in late 2011 has returned management to its primary owner, though Jeff aka Luke has agreed to allow our staff to be on his network staff. The Star Wars IRC Network now has 2 IRC servers in different physical locations. Bespin, which is owned and operated by Luke (Jeff Turkstra) and Thrawn which is owned and operated by the SWRebellion Network (owned by Evaders99 and managed by Stratus et. al.). We have moved back to UnrealIRCD and IRC Services. Services will be controlled by Jeff but we have been granted access to administer them as well. All network issues that should arise should be addressed to staff at starwars-irc dot net. The appropriate person will respond depending on the issue that occurs.

We'd like to thank Jeff Turkstra for his overwhelming support and understanding for our own server troubles, and his assistance. We are pleased to be linked to his network and once again be operating reliably.

  ThaiCycles for Education
News from Stratus I am posting this message on behalf of my dear friend, Joel Ragar, Founder of ThaiCycles, an organization that raises money to provide bicycles for children in Thailand to allow them to obtain an education. Please visit www.thaicycles.com for details. Message follows:
-----------------------------------

Hi Everyone
I am writing you, my friends, for some major help! ThaiCycles went live on Tippingbucket.org TODAY! (Saturday). Tippingbucket.org helps social ventures get funding.  ThaiCycles has one week to raise $5,750  on the Tippingbucket.org site. ThaiCycles donates bikes to children in third world countries who have no transportation to school. We just finished our first bike drop 2 weeks ago in northern Thailand. It was awesome and the children were so appreciative. With your help we can make a huge impact and difference. Directly from Tippingbucket.org we will be able to do a large bike drop immediately again (it is needed this time of year) as well as sustain ourselves to continue to help many many more within the next year.

Here is what I am pleading for in me asking your help. Donate just $1 (or more if you can) on tippingbucket.org.  Each day till next Saturday (1 week) take 10 mins of your time to; post on your facebook status inviting others to donate too, send a quick email to all of your friends to donate and spread the word, post it on your blogs or ask friends you know to post it on their blog, tell family members/cousins/aunts/relatives to donate a buck and spread the world too, text 10 friends to donate a buck and to text 10 other friends to do the same. And any other creative things you can think of to spread the word and social network to all the masses about ThaiCycles and our goal.

The only way we can make this successful is if I receive your help. I can't reach all of your friends and with your help we can reach the thousands we need to to raise the funds for ThaiCycles and donate hundreds of bikes to children around the world. Please please please help, I selected you to send this email out to because I knew you could help me make the difference.

Here is the catch if we don't raise all the funds on tippingbucket.org before the time expires then all the money that was donated is given back to those who donated it and ThaiCycles does not receive anything. This is why I NEED your help to succeed and make a difference. 

I have been very privileged to have started and been apart of ThaiCycles and now I need your help to keep the aid alive and growing. Please find it in yourself to dedicate the few 10-15 mins a day and make a world of difference.

Joel Ragar
Founder, ThaiCycles

  Loss of a Good Man
News from Stratus We mourn the loss of a friend and former colleague, Rhys Skywalker, who was killed in a card accident February 12th. He was a remarkable young man, full of hope, full of promise, with great potential, an excellent leader and programmer. Though he never worked for SWRebellion, I did have small dealings with him myself and hired him on a project or two.

http://www.swcombine.com/community/news/simnews.php

Our sympathies to his family and friends, and to the entire SWC community.
