Well that escalated quickly

Despite stepping away from Eve a couple of weeks ago, I've found myself still touching base with the community (some friendships are hard to leave behind).  I watched in mild amusement as reddit got mad over changes to the play styles of the 1% of the 1% (just remember folks - real capsuleers would biomass … Continue reading Well that escalated quickly


Moving on (for now)

Sometimes an idea for a post rattles in my head for days, sometimes even weeks.  Right up front, with is me saying farewell to New Eden (who knows for how long though). That's right - as amazing as this game is, and more importantly the community that surrounds it, it is time for me to … Continue reading Moving on (for now)

Coupled with waiting until after returning from Fanfest to get my computer fixed, I've taken to been watching things go down … Continue reading Counting down the days


Treking to the Sisters

Sad news - the hard drive on my desktop computer failed a week ago.  And with Fanfest rapidly approaching, any spare money is being put aside to save for that instead. Not all is lost though, as I am currently writing this on an old laptop that I have lying around.  Sure its not as … Continue reading Treking to the Sisters
