Oh for an Orca

I know I've been harping on about this ship in Eve for some days now, but this morning I finally finished the skill training required in order to fly one. For those of you who dont know (and are interested), an Orca is a Capital Ship primarily used for fleet mining operations in asteroid belts.

Chunder: Whats Up?

Still wanted a "ditty" about what we're doing, so I wrote a ditty :)

heres a little ditty about whats going on
and just for fun I made it rhyme like a song

as most of you, some of you, none of you know
I live in the U.K not far from Heathrow
I've worked for this company these past 11 years
yet still redundancy is one of my fears

I price partitions both in drywall and glass
and most of the time its a pain in the arse
but sitting at a desk can sometimes be bliss
as when no ones around I can do things like this

but theres lots going on in my personal time

Eve Online - Knowing the Proper Damage Type

TL;DR? I fucked up, I fixed it, I'm great :)

I've been playing EvE for some time on and off so I have no excuses for this, except for perhaps early onset of Alzheimer's. I'll explain in a minute, but some background info first;

EVE New Forums Thread

CCP are trialing some new forums so I popped over there to take a look & came across this thread:

It made me laugh. Even the CCP Devs have posted rude words in it!
In fact its a good idea as at least thay can hopefully refine their filters based on what is said there before they come fully online.

As for my opinion on the new forums, I dont like them. I guess Im used to the old ones more, but I also find them a lot slower to load initially & each thread takes an age to open.

Welcome Recomendations

In the news today was a report from the UK's independant regulator and competitions authority known as "Ofcom" on the UK's broadband speeds.

It turns out that they have researched ISP's and broadband speeds over a number of households and providers packages and discovered what essentially most of us already knew; which is basically that the UK's providers are swindling bastards, and speeds are on average only half what they advertise.

Recently in EvE....

With Hulkageddon going strong this week I've let EvE take a bit of a back seat in my leisure time, simply logging in long enough to update my training queue.

I could of course do missions, but my two top agents are Mining Division and Astrogation Division, so the majority of missions tend to mostly revolve around either transporting something in a hauler or mining something in a barge, both of which are Hulkageddon targets!

It also wouldnt be honest if I didnt say that I have downloaded a really great series of sci fi books to my Kindle which has also kept me engrossed.

Further Info on EvE GTC's

Tans post below got me thinking today. I have always subscribed to EvE with my Visa card on a monthly basis as its a) simples, and b) I never know when I want to quit a game so never do a 6 or 12 month paid in advanced plan.

Chunder Changes Channels (n' stuff)

Valentines Day eh? What better way to tell someone you love them that by making them sit for 2 hours in a shop while you haggle with the salesman? None better I hear you chant :)

So we went into Reading town centre yesterday & arranged to change over our broadband, TV & phone to Virgin Media. They did loads of freebies/offers for us so we officially do the changeover on the 12th March.

Originally we went in with the following criteria which I determined from looking at their online shop:

10Mb broadband.
L size TV package with sky movies, HD box downstairs and non HD box upstairs.

Sorry Tanitha

Honest I was really really hoping the crew of one of these ships was going to bail out. Alas I had to blow them all into little bits and pieces.

An EvEning of Missions & Disconnects

Im getting really annoyed with my broadband now. You may remember a post I made a week or so ago about British Telecom - my ISP - somehow cranking my speed down and the 3 day wait for it to return to normal? Well these past 2 days my router, a B.T provided home hub has kept dropping the broadband connection. Its dont the same thing in the past on occasion, but now it seems to be more prevailant.
