As you may have noticed if you’ve tried to get to my blog, you’re now being redirected to my blogs’ new location. I’ve been wanting to buy a domain for this blog for around a year now and since I have money to spare, I thought that I should finally get around to it.

This post is mainly an information post to inform all of my readers that you’ll need to change your RSS, bookmark, etc. links to the links for the new blog. Of course, my old blog links will re-direct to the new ones but simply for convenience, it’ll be easier and quicker to link to my new blog URL.

While I had some troubles yesterday with broken links and whatnot, all links should still be working. So, if anyone has linked to anywhere in my  blog (at its old location), that link will now redirect to the new location of that post.
There are still some things that I need to fix such as re-doing the blogroll so it links to all of the blogs that my old blogroll did but that’ll definitely be finished by the end of the day.

I’m going to be mirroring this blog post on my old blog so as to get the message out to my RSS feed readers too.

Sorry if this post seems a bit muddled, I’m not too good at writing a blog post when I’ve just woken up. 😦

A couple weeks ago, CrazyKinux had the amazing idea of setting up an EVE blog pack. It’s a pretty simple affair really, the general idea is that a group of bloggers all help each other out by linking to other’s posts, commenting on them, digging them, etc.

Since my I haven’t been posting as much as I would have liked and I’m sure not many people check my blog roll on the sidebar, I thought I should post links to the members of the blog post here to both help out the blog pack and also give my readers (that’s you) a few other EVE blogs to read if you don’t already read them.

If you want to subscribe to the entire blog pack in one go, CrazyKinux was nice enough to create a way for you to do that. Just click the link below and suscribe away. 🙂

Fly safe lads and ladies.

It seems that a hell of a lot has been happening in the world of EVE Online while I was out today. Over the last 12 hours, there has been over fifty news articles posted to the downtime news page. There are just so many events (and possibly more coming), there’s no way I can link to and talk about them all individually. So below is a timeline of sorts of the many events with the newest story at the top. I’ll keep an eye on the downtime news page and update the timeline as news events are posted.

Just a quick note to say that I won’t be able to get online much (if at all) over the next week or so as I’m moving house tomorrow and it’ll take just over a week to get internet access. I may be able to get online at an internet café or at a friends house but I’ll mostly likely only be checking emails and any social networking sites I’m a member of. It’ll be very unlikely I’ll be able to get on a computer with EVE installed and be able to play for long enough to get a decent blog post written up.

So, until I’m able to get back online, here are some great EVE Online related blogs to keep you entertained in my absence.

If you wish to keep updated on my whereabouts and general goings on over the next week or so, I’ll be trying my best to update my Twitter status whenever I can get online. You can find my Twitter updates on the sidebar on the right, or at the main Twitter site here.

Time to unplug and pack my computer. Bye for now.
