The Wider World

Official Comic will be up "late." Hope you guys are enjoying our little story arc. I know putting a bunch of mining episodes in a row means mojo and smeg have moved on to some new comic or just plain internet porn. But we're having a lot of fun learning how to put spaceships into our comic, so they'll just have to cope.

I don't know if any of you were following the allegations of Dev misconduct. I wasn't really, but when the news bits on the log-on screen had 3 consecutive mentions of it, I had to look in a little deeper. I didn't bother reading the threads, since I get enough flaming from my wife, but I didn't really understand the issue. I DID read all the threads during the Band of Developers scandal, and that didn't make a lot of sense at the time either.

An all-out war has been raging in our back yard for well over a month, and our best friends outside the ACU (yes, that's you Cognet guys) are in the thick of it. We are not. Since I was at work today, I'm not sure how "Fight Night" went, or whether we even had it, but the times I've been to fight have been more of a "lets play at being in a war" rather than actually getting into the mud and staying dirty until the fight was won. I try to keep up with the fighting, but even their news reports seem confusing to me. I think 95% of it, is my lack of context. This leads me to think that I'm not engaged enough in the wider EVE world. I'm starting to feel like I'm at EVE-camp, while our friends are really playing EVE.

I don't know about the rest of you, but the war-dec by the Privateers was almost 'flattering', in the sense that WE were a part of a big EVE event. Of course that's kind of like being proud that you slept with Wilt Chamberlain (thank G-d for hyperlinks on that reference).

This is just me musing. This is definitely NOT me saying lets declare war on B0B and recreate the 300, but I guess I am feeling like I'm playing in an ever-shrinking box. Stepping out might be dangerous, but it sure sounds like fun at the moment

Sorry for the delay in the comic posting, folks. Maybe if I didn't have so many f*#%ing exams to grade. This school would be soooo much better if it didn't have any kids.
