Welcome To 2011

It wasn't the best Christmas I've had the pleasure of partaking in, with far too much activity and a slew of colds striking the kids over the past week when I was off. So I'm back at work, not rested, not recharged, and ready to go back to bed. Wonderful.

Needless to say I did not do anything of great note in Eve as I could not string together more than 20 minutes of uninterrupted Eve time until last night when the wife went to bed early and the kids were finally asleep. I couldn't do any serious PvP with the baby monitor on so I chatted and recorded a podcast to get ahead for once.

What I did manage to accomplish was some minor logistic carrier jumps and keep the planetary interaction colonies going as well as investigate the new character creator and new master extractor for PI on SISI (more on that later in the week). I also purchased and fitted the Chimera for the live event in two weeks. Here are some more details:

When: Jan 17th, 9pm EST (0200 eve time on Jan 18th)

What: Chimera on a planet or belt in a low sec system (to be announced on Jan 10th) for at least 30 minutes or until dead.

Why: Celebrating 6 years of blogging and upcoming 2000 posts

Who: You and anyone else that shows up.

How: I'll warp to a celestial (no station or gate) in a system to be announced next week and tell everyone in local and the Ninveah channel where I am. Then they can come to shoot or support me. I will fight back but will not warp away for 30 minutes.

There will be prizes:
- Grand Prize for Final Blow on carrier killmail: Navy Issue Armageddon Battleship

- Prize for Most Damage on killmail: Guristas faction Gila Cruiser

- Prize for Final Blow on pod killmail: Imperial Navy Slicer frigate.

So mark the date on the calendar, tell your friends and corpmates, post in forums, blog about it. The more the merrier!


  1. Happy New Year! Hope I can make the event, still haven't decided if I'm shooting you or shooting people shooting you... sounds like a game time decision. If I can make it. Either way it sounds like a blast.

    Here's to a great year for all of us.

  2. I'll try and put a cloaked camera ship at a suitable distance to the event; hopefully I'll find the right distance to show all that is happening without losing detail.
