"The sky is falling…."

Work and stuff at home have kept me rather busy this week, but I did find a few gems in the rough.

  • “The Sky is falling….” For those of you who do not know, Godlesswanderer runs a great blog over at Articulated Sky (http://articulatedsky.com).  He’s a decent writer and a whiz with graphic design.  He’s made signatures and posters for many people in the EVE Community.  Recently he announced that he will be closing his site down on the 12th of December (http://articulatedsky.com/2009/11/05/shutting-down-soon) as things are a bit tough on the financial front.  He’s a bit down in the dumps about the whole thing, why not stop by and try to cheer him up.
  • CCP Games put a new marketing website for EVE Online.  Head over to http://getaclone.com.  It’s a decent Flash based site, brings the immersion factor up a notch.  It was inspiration for a quick episode of The Bleeding Rose, http://www.eve-druid.com/on-the-wings-of-angels.
  • Over at The EVE Online Portal we added 5 new blogs to the OPML Download bringing the total of blogs to 458!  Head over and bookmark the Latest Blogs! page (http://www.evebloggers.com/latest-blogs) to keep to date on our new members of the EVE Blogging Community.

  • The Planet Risk show had a nice episode with a few of the hopefuls for the next CSM debating on various topics, head over to (http://www.planetriskshow.com/episode-9) and have a listen.
  • While reading old posts on the EVE forums, I came across this small collection of EVE related themes for Windows 7.  I found this high on the cool factor as I’ve recently upgraded my laptop and reloaded my desktop with Windows 7  Home Premium. (http://www.eveonline.com/ingameboard.asp?a=topic&threadID=967784)
  • The latest EVE novel, EVE:  The Burning Life is available for preorder on Amazon (http://www.amazon.com/EVE-Burning-Life-Hjalti-Danielsson/dp/0765325292/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1257517238&sr=1-1).
  • Remember that wonderful backdrop on the main stage at Fanfest that everyone wants as a screensaver?  Well, it’s supposed to be out after Dominion. Keep an eye on this thread on the EVE forums for updates, http://www.eveonline.com/ingameboard.asp?a=topic&threadID=1193324&page=3#69.
  • CCP released new details on the upcoming Sovereignty System changes.  You can read the Dev Blog and the Responses. Just initially going over the numbers, a developed system will cost roughly 2 billion isk a month to maintain.  Please point out a small alliance that is trying to get into 0.0 that can afford 2 billion isk a month.  There aren’t any.  I simply don’t see how this is going to make people want to go to 0.0 space when they can earn the same amount of isk in Empire space with less effort.  Go read the forums on this as the responses are very interesting and mostly against the upcoming changes.

See you out there!!!
