    How do you get a global and a hof in the same loot? Isn't it one or the other? I guess you could do it if you got two big claims mining.

    hope somebody is actually gonna start a CYSU up there
    and i think it would be great if the inhabitants of calypso did the same too.
    we tried to start on RT but to few ppl to make it work there yet!
    i guess all planets need to have their own agreements alike the ASU idea!
