Heh. All those choices you mention are the same sort of things that happened with my Skype-top game - only I didn't have the luxury of time.

As to jump flash, I don't think there's anything on it officially, except a bit here or there to add confusion. It has been hashed out quite regularly in the forums. (Lots of good different interpretations, btw. I don't have a problem with yours at all.) Only question might be - if all jump flashes aren't the same (jump requires different energy levels based on distance and size), then can it tell you ship size or distance jumped/jumping? Oh, and is there an entrance flash? (EDIT: Oop! You answer that one in the IC thread. )

I didn't realize the timing on that broadcast. He is less than a light second out from us, so lag would hardly be noticeable.
