The Path to Vegas

Somer Blink is about to celebrate crossing the 300 trillion mark. They have had a few shaky days with someone managing to drop some nasty scripting to steal user account logins due to their not realizing that they had a gambling problem.

Yet another reason Eve is so damn fun. Gambling. Player run built and run things.

Gambling made me remember that Eve Vegas approaches. It went from months and months and months to a sudden rush that its not that far away.

I finally got around to picking up my plane tickets. I'm a bit unhappy that I couldn't find a direct flight to Vegas. I kept hoping a flight would pop up. Somehow I will manage.

This means I'm set. Flight is booked. Hotel is booked. Convention ticket is purchased.

From those who are going not everyone is going to the convention. That is cool, there will be plenty of time to hang out with my people. I am very much interested in everything but Dust. If my concept of note taking and such works out I'll do everything there.

The Mittani is supposed to have a speech and I'm quite interested in that.

Supposedly we will have internet access and power in the conference. My laptop and I will be quite happy keeping track of what is going on if that is the case. I keep being told to take pictures. Therefor, I'll probably take a shit ton of pictures and set up a photo gallery for people that like that type of thing.

We'll see how it goes.

The CCP Developer list is:

CCP Arrow - Eve - UI Design

CCP Bettik - Eve - In game events/Missions/Story

CCP Guard - Eve - Community

CCP Soundwave - Eve - Eve Online Lead Designer

CCP Stillman - Eve - Security

CCP Vertias - Eve - Time Dilatation

CCP Nothing - Dust 514 - Game designer and economist

I remember what a mess some of the information filtering back from fanfest was. Hopefully I'll be able to be coherent. Or not. Who knows. I won't be suffering any hangovers thankfully so my inabilities will be 100% my own fail. I at least want to give it a try. My biggest complaint was that so little written information came out and everyone wanted everyone to watch the videos.

If I enjoy this I may think about going to fanfest in the spring.

  1. I hope you have fun in Vegas, that way you make it to Iceland. I was blown away by the experience and that was before Fanfest began.
