Pilots’ Choice Award Voting Opens

UUNN Newswire

PCA 117

Voting has opened today for the 117 Pilots’ Choice Awards.  Medals for Combat, Mining, Conflux Hunting, Economy Support and Leadership will be awarded to pilots receiving the most votes — though there is a seven-vote minimum to qualify for an award.  A Pilots’ Choice Award can be given to ANY registered pilot and any pilot can vote — but just once.

“This is the third year this award has been offered,” said Garth Taren, President and CEO of TRI Corporation.  “Unfortunately, for the last two years, no pilot has gained the required ten votes to qualify in any category — so this year, the Factional Leadership group has lowered the qualifying number to seven.  They also indicated that if there are no qualifiers this year, the award will be discontinued.”

ALL PILOTS are encouraged to participate by voting HERE

Any awards will be presented to pilots during this year’s Festival! celebration which will run from 117.11.23 through 117.11.26.

Hyperial Antiflux Supplies Disappear

UUNN Newswire

(Hyperial) Hyperial authorities reported that the small supply of rare Antiflux ECMs antifluxthey had provided at Hyperial Station were taken on 117.11.1.  The news triggered a pricing panic with very few Antiflux left.  Prices were nearing 500,000 credits by the end of the day.

TRI-SEC indicated that they had an idea who had purchased the Antiflux, and that they planned on questioning the pilot.  “We have the purchase data from Hyperial and are going to be talking to the pilot — primarily for his own safety,” said TRI officer Layton ‘Scorch’ Morrison.”  Technically, nothing illegal has happened since the Antiflux were purchased at the market price.   But pilots tend to react rather emotionally when it comes to hoarding of rare goods.  This guy needs to understand what he’s setting himself up for.”

Audio Mystery Creates Flurry of Corporate Offers

UUNN Newswire

(UUNN HQ) The recent release of an unusual audio file by Dr. Thane Dannewar has created a small flurry of offers by companies making promises to “find waldo” . . . for a fee.

According to Dr. Dannewar, overtures have been made by Ayabar Labs, Dorator Tech, Lexxor Intelligence and the SET Group.  “I find it pretty disgusting,” said Dannewar.  “I went looking for group problem-solving and all I got is group profit-seeking.  If they want to help — well I released the file.  Go ahead and help.  There won’t be any contracts.”

To date, the only analysis of the audio has been offered by data recover expert Jalil Aq’Tamm who felt the issue was one of “deep sound” — but had not been able to decode any potential underlying datasteam.   Another entity who refused to provide a name suggested they were focusing on a “spread spectrum” analysis.

We have determined that the hacking of TRI Databank this morning was a very minor security breach impacting only the home page for the databank system.  No other data was corrupted and we have found no evidence that any critical systems have been touched.

TRI Databank Hacked

UUNN Newswire

(UUNN HQ)  TRI Databank, which serves as the public access point to TRI Corporation’s extensive cultural, historical and technical archives was apparently hacked today, raising fears that TRI’s systems could have been compromised in even more serious ways.

The hack is a fairly simple graphic with a somewhat ominous message.
