Well today is my birthday, and I turn the big 30. Just another day, just another number … oh well.

Had morning tea and lunch at work, I don’t like the fuss. But truly don’t mind it either.

Proxy is still blocked at work, it does block some sites and content. Damn them, but oh well. I’m working on a method to by pass the proxy via a SSH tunnel. I’ve gotten it working on the old proxy, but I don’t want to have to use that one and have it work on the ‘new’ one. I enjoy a challenge.

Finally subscribed to EVE Online, so that’s my MMO of choice for the moment. It offers some fun and break in the boredom. Met a few friendly and helpful people on there so look forward to that.

My sister and niece came over to work and surprised me and that was pleasant. She at times a sole reason to continue.

More EVE

Well the game currently has my attention … 🙂  The time taken to reach certain training levels to gain access to bigger and better things is a double edged sword.  The want to get to ‘their’ hopefully will continue to entertain me enough to keep going.  Knowing a goal will take 5, 6 7+ month to reach is strange one.

Finally got enough money and skill to purchase and fly a top level of the frigates, so tonight I’ll be able to purchase that ship and be able to hold my own with more enemies.

At the end of my season after watching Boston Legal and Scrubs just before be I started to get a migraine.  Now I was using my glasses to watch TV and Underworld – Evolution.  Now I think the glasses are doing it or contributing to them, as I’ve had the same effect each time I’ve used them to watch TV.  So I wont be doing that any time soon.

EVE Online

Well I finally installed and started the trial period for this MMO.  I had had a trial key for a awhile but was hesitant about trying it, don’t know why.  The graphics always looked impressive and reminded me of Homeworld another game I played and enjoyed.

Well the first few days had some downtime due to patches and hardware updated.  Bad timing on my part.

Well the game is so huge, you wouldn’t believe and what has gotten me is the micro management of skill training.  Which occurs out of game.  So once I get into a game I loose myself in it … so I’m sure everything else will suffer.  This blog and other sites….
