You will probably have noticed that I haven’t been posting over the last two weeks. My intention to begin with was to post updates every so often to show I’m still in the land of the living. Unfortunately I had some family troubles over Christmas which then leaked over into New Years and carried on until about a week afterwards. Unfortunately, this left me without access to my computer for about two weeks and I’ve spent the last couple days catching up on everything I’ve missed while away from the computer. I’ll try and get something posted by the end of the week but in the mean time, check out my Tumblr blog for my recent Diggs, Flickr uploads and Twitter posts.
On side note, I’m still looking for more opinions on whether I should change my blog layout. If I don’t get any more by the time I write my next post, I’m most likely going to go with the current majority and change.

So, I’ve been playing EVE for a bit today under the new premium client and I have to say I’m very impressed at the quality of the graphics. I’ve only managed to grab screenshots of my Myrmidon so far as my other ships are in a different system and there’s a gate-camp* somewhere along the 6 jump route. I could chance it but while I could put up a hell of a fight, I’d rather keep my Myrmidon in one piece. And keeping it in one piece won’t be very likely if I come across a gate-camp with more than two people.
I’ll most likely upload more screenshots when I get the chance to see more ships and/or objects in general.
*A gate-camp is a group of ships hanging around one end of a stargate, with the intention of either destroying or ransoming (usually destroying) any ships going in or out of said stargate.
As I’m writing this post, I’m sitting in the Science and Trade Institute station in Tasti and patiently waiting while the new Premium client downloads at a somewhat speedy 225 kb/s. I know I say this a lot but I honestly cannot wait to see the new and improved graphics. I’m almost even more excited to see the new Myrmidon. I’ve yet to see a single screenshot of one with improved graphics.
If anyone reading this also looks at my EVE Online screenshots on my Flickr page, I’ll be making a new set for my Trinity screenshots which you’ll be able to find here.
As with all major patch releases, it seems that a few bugs have popped up and Trinity is causing CCP some problems. I just had this message pop up while I was chatting to some of the EVE GFX guys. Hopefully they can get these sorted out soon and we get back to having a relatively bug-free EVE experience.
Hi, were having a wee problem with a node and we need to close it down. The people in the constellations (51ZT-6, AC-RON, D-GU3R, D-YMGR, EL8Z-M, GP-GIU, I-3ODK, I89-EP, Mermaid, Q-IPAA, U7L-MQ, Unicorn) will be disconnected from the server. It will only take 1-2 mins max for these constellations to reload. Please try to be out of harms way within the next 5 mins if you are in 1 of these constellations.
Eve Online Development Team
On a side note, I had no idea that there were two constellations called Mermaid and Unicorn.
