This weekend will be my first ever POS launch. Those of you who keep up with this blog know how big this is for my and my corp. I don’t have a heck of a lot of experience with this stuff but have done a ton of research and think I will be all set. Alliance will be providing some lock down fleets as well as bubbling of gates (I hope). All in all it should go well. I’ll post some pictures next week and maybe a frap vid or two. Hope all your weekends are action packed and safe!
Podcasts: Seems like all the other podcasts have come to a screeching halt as of late. Fly Reckless seems to be the only one on a decent schedule. It’s too bad too because I really really like both WDA and TDB. Thinking of starting my own bi-weekly podcast.
Fly Reckless #25: SB Does his thing as usual.
Dev Blogs: These take on a certain level of extreme importance as Apocrypha draws near.
Strategic Cruisers: A New Breed – by CCP Nozh: I’m loving these little tidbits they are releasing as Apocrypha approaches!
More Queue Queue – by CCP: Great news. Not the implementation everyone was hoping for, but certainly better than nothing.
Kirith Kodachi’s Apochrypha Probing Lessons: I, II & III: A must read for any probers out there. Apocrypha will change how probing works and these are good reads to make sure you are prepared.
The EvE Online Portal/EveBloggers.com: Fresh, vibrant and just what we needed with so many Eve related blogs out there. I hope to see Alexia take this site to the next level and do highlights as well as quick snapshots of the various new posts.
EvE Mag – Mondo’s Flight Academy Part I & Part II: Really loving these. Almost reminds me a little of the start of Ender’s Game. I will be following these.
From The Forums:
BoB Threadnaught: This thing just keeps going. Things seem to be settling down on the whole BoB/Kenny thing. The Goons of course overexagerated on their claims of BoB running with their tails between their legs. In Fact it looks as if Kenny has a good portion of their original systems back. Goons took quite a hit in SOV loss this week.
Wednesday Screenshots Contest: I love taking screenshots as I fly through space, but I’m sure some of you have some great screenshots as well. I figured a little contest is in order. Send an email with ONE screenshot that you love to nickdgdm[at]yahoo.com with “Screenshot Contest #1” in the subject. Attach the screenshot in .jpg format as large as you have it. Send only one screenshot. If you have a bunch you love, save them for next time! Also put a little caption of it in the email as well as where I should send the ISK if you win. Also, if you happen to have a blog that you keep, please send the link to it as well so I can link to it if and when you win.
Ok, the prizes. This first time I’ll start with 10 Million ISK. Submissions are due by midnight this Sunday. A post will be up Monday showing all the submissions at which time everyone will get to vote. Voting continues from Monday to Early Wednesday at which time the winner will be announced and posted. So get out there this weekend and snap some screenshots!
