Writing is easy. You only need to stare at a piece of blank paper until your forehead bleeds.

Another post concerning things outside of the EVE Client (I swear I have an article about spaceships that I'm writing, it's just not done yet!).  Today we're going to take a look at some of the history of the EVE Blogosphere because I'm So Meta, Even This Article.

I'll Hate Myself Come Morning

'Why can't people just learn to live together in peace and harmony?' said Arthur.  
Ford gave a loud, very hollow laugh. 'Forty-two!' he said with a malicious grin, 
'No, doesn't work. Never mind.'

I really didn't want to do this.  I've never used this blog to discuss EVE politics or further any sort of political agenda as I firmly believe it compromises the integrity of the information presented on the rest of the blog.  However, with that said, the EVE community seems to be interested in talking about nothing else today except The Mittani's behavior at the Fanfest Alliance Panel.  Fine then, if that's all we're going to talk about today, then that's all we're going to talk about today.

Reflections of a Gamer

Let the past hold on to itself and let the present move forward into the future.
--Douglas Adams

Fanfest 2012 has drawn to a close. While I was not attending, I did try to watch as much of the livestream broadcast as I was able and am grateful to CCP for broadcasting to those of us unable to attend.  The focus of this year's Fanfest was clearly the upcoming launch of DUST514 and in watching CCP discuss their non-EVE projects I began thinking more about them.  How these projects might effect the future of my gaming choices got me thinking about some of my past gaming experience and led to this post.  To those of you who read this blog for its guides; this post isn't for you.  To those who read it for discussion of EVE; this post isn't for you either.  Now that I've alienated 99% of my audience, the rest of you can read on for a post that is equal parts narcissistic look at my past and love letter to CCP Games.

She passed the time quietly in a world of her own in which she was surrounded as far as the eye could see with old cabin trunks full of past memories in which she rummaged with great curiosity, and sometimes bewilderment. Or, at least, about a tenth of the cabin trunks were full of vivid, and often painful or uncomfortable memories of her past life; the other nine-tenths were full of penguins, which surprised her.

I've been experiencing a bit of Déjà vu this past month.  I didn't really know what to say about it though, until the recent Dev Blog put it out there in the open.  "I've experienced this feeling before," I thought.  "But what is it?"  Oh yes, the feeling that CCP Hates Me.
