And now, back to the real world...

I've just had 2 weeks off work over the xmas and new year holiday period, but now I'm back to work tomorrow. Needless to say, I've enjoyed the holidays, and enjoyed the availability of playing Eve every day, during the day, whenever I felt like it. It's been goooood...

But like most good things, it has to come to an end. So back to work tomorrow, and I return to playing Eve during prime time, evenings. But in Australia, our prime time is when everyone else in the world is asleep.

Ah well, so be it.

OUCH has been doing well. I've got over 60 members now, and it's been only about 3 weeks since it opened for business. Recruitment has been good.

My prime trainer has disappeared, and it so happens he's the alliance executor as well... I don't know what's going on there, but I hope he comes back soon.

In the meantime, I'm very happy that I've now got another trainer who's joined us just today. You all know him as the blogger behind The Captain's Log, Prometheus09. Welcome Prome, it's awesome having you onboard!

I'm very excited about what he will be bringing to OUCH with his experience, and he's already started planning what he's going to be training. Exciting times!

Already, with mainly noobs, we're starting to see some confidence among them. With just a little direction and some basic advice about how to survive in nullsec, they're going out there and they're making their mark on the harshest areas of the galaxy. It's fantastic!

A couple of days ago we had our first idiot try to join. He was 1 hour old, said on his application that he'd never played the game before and was told about OUCH by his friend. And yet he suicided his character to get to the corp HQ immediately, and then his first words in corp chat were "Hey! Give me access to the corp hangar!"

I gave him access to my boot. Arsehole.

In my last post I wrote that I'd bought myself a Taranis. Since then I bought another one, as well as an Ishkur.

But then my laptop died. So now I'm using a 15" Windows laptop, instead of what I was using, which was a 17" MacBook Pro connected to a 22" monitor. The monitor won't connect to the Windows laptop, so until I get the MBP repaired, I'm sticking to a bit of corp admin instead of PVP.

Well, that's all for an update. Until next time, fly safe.
