People I’d Like to Meet

December 24, 2015

It’s Christmas EvE here… OK that was unexpected… Christmas Eve here and have just exchanged holiday greetings with Hermit. Kind of putting off wrapping of presents coz there is a truck ton of them to do.

And a truck ton of wrapping necessitates a truck ton of procrastination imho. Especially given the carefully crafted wrapping gets annihilatedΒ  within .5 of a second once in the grasp of its recipient…

Ahem. Anyways, and with procrastination dialled up to 11, I was thinking about the various people in game that I’d really like to meet in RL. If I’m very careful, and my employment situation remains stable, I have a chance to make Fanfest in 2018 in my 10th year of playing EvE.

These people in one way or another have been part of the community I’ve engaged with. Sometimes as a silent consumer to be fair. But still, interesting folks in any case imho, and it would be grand if RL conspired to allow it to happen at FF.

In no particular order:

EvE Hermit – at least we live in the same hemisphere πŸ™‚

Mynxee – yes you, Great Lady. Enjoy the fireworks.

Ashterothi and the crew at Hydrostatic Podcast

Random McNally and the crew at High Drag

Apothne (hulll tinkerrrrrrrr!) and the rest of the AT commentary team.

Roc Wieler – The Colonel and I agree about many things, others that might require a considerable amount of discussion just to find out we agree about many things… πŸ™‚

Neville Smit – a man whose brain I would love to pick. No not for the transneural skill packets… honestly…

CCP Seagull – if for no other reason than a chance to say Thank You.

Turamarth – Builder of soapboxes, holder of opinions, and a good man.


Now I know I’ve missed people and that it’s going to bug me. I have a fairly extensive subscription list, and while it would be wonderful to meet all of you, I just CBA typing everyone’s names out right now.

In any case, this is a small thanks from me for your contributions to the community as a whole, and a chance to wish you all a very Merry Christmas.


Travel Safe,

        Winner of the day here as always is Nerf, boys do love their Christmas ordnance! Though the future ruler of the universe has also already built a radio from components this morning. His Nemesis has gone super oldschool and is having fun with an actual Spirograph.

    I wish each and everyone of you… and all of us who fly the deadly skies of New Eden… the best of all there is in life… thank you for being my people.

    A man’s worth is measured by those who call him friend… and you all, make my lives, both real and virtual, worth more than I can believe… thank you.

    And yes, by the gods and by Bob… if I can I WILL meet you in the real… one day… and lift a glass to this amazing shared life we live together.

    • Mate! Sorry it took so long to respond. I’ve been working nights and just haven’t been on.

      A drink? I think I’ll raise a bottle πŸ™‚

      Cheers Tur. May the next year be an absolulte blast πŸ™‚

  4. I hope you managed to finish your wrapping in time Helena, and got to enjoy a relaxed Christmas. Tur – why am I not surprised you are one of those people who remain nice with alcohol on board.
