I took a week off to recharge the batteries and get stuck into some quality EVE playing.

Then Real Life happened.

I end my week exhausted, overwhelmed, and with barely 10 minutes spent logged into the game.  Posts might be sparse for a while.

I wanted to comment on the change of direction of the EVE Client Launcher –

CCP never really finished the first version of the launcher. It came with promises of future iterations that never saw the light of day. While I appreciate the change to the more robust nature of the BitTorrent protocol – it comes at a cost. For those of us who have both down and uploads count towards their monthly quota, the patch files will effectively be a larger hit. Further – some ISP specifically throttle Torrent Traffic, so patching could take longer.  I suspect for each problem they resolve with such a move, they will just create new ones.
