...and there we are! Congratulations to Spectre3353, Spectre3353 and Spectre3353 for their fantastic contributions and fabulous prizes. I couldn't be happier with the quality of their entries and enthusiasm towards... me. Your money has been sent and the items have been contracted! Enjoy!!!

Farewell For Now

This post marks the indefinite end to the EveNewb blog. Notice I said INDEFINITE. I am not currently planning on posting anything else here at the moment but if/when I return to Eve and if I simply feel the need to write about something video game related, you might see something pop up. For Eve roleplaying purposes, please just assume that the pirate Spectre has been captured and imprisoned by the Gallente Federation. He is currently being charged with attempted murder, murder, murder by shovel, murder by sandwich, armed robbery, petty theft, sodomy, animal cruelty, impersonating a government official, drug trafficking, smuggling, public drunkenness and disorderly conduct. It is an impressive list that I am most proud of.

-Spectre
