Well this isn't really current news, but it's still worth reading.
tl;dr - guy loses a ship with 22bn isk in the cargo hold.

I saw flashes of yellow, then red, and then I was left floating in my pod in the cold void of space. Moral of the story, don't bring a shield buffer fit when all your friends are armor reppers. 48 mil down the drain, no big deal. But it still sucks losing one of your favorite ships.

If you play, and are currently on the fence about a T3 ship, just buy one! They're a huge improvement over everything I've flown so far for NPC killing. I'm too scared to fit one for PVP, but they're my weapon of choice when it comes to grinding for another PVP ship.

The Cameroon wrapper on this cigar looks a little drab at first, but I’ve noticed that it changes quite a bit once lit, this wrapper must be really sensitive to heat. A minute or two after lighting oils come to the surface and the wrapper shines.
The color is consistent and there is the occasional glue smear. The roll is firm and regular, and the draw is just right. Occasionally a cigar with this type of foot will offer resistance until the burn reaches the main body of the stick, but I haven’t encountered this problem with the Short Story.
The perfecto “nipple” makes this an extremely easy cigar to light. One match is usually all it takes. The burn can be a little uneven until the cinder has reached the main shank of the cigar, but from that point it evens out. The ash is firm — with any luck you won’t need to ash this cigar but once, if at all.
The Short Story is surprisingly complex for such a small cigar. It opens up with a strong sweet cedar flavor and a touch of mint, the hallmark of Cameroon wrapper. The smoke is medium to full in texture with a spicy tang.
After a few more puffs the flavor gets earthier and there is a touch of black pepper on the tongue. This is a medium bodied cigar in terms of both smoke density and power, but it has a lot of character. The aroma is a bit piney — sweet and spicy.
The finish grows a little bit toward the end, the aroma weakens somewhat, and the flavors muddy slightly. And then it’s done. That’s the only problem with this cigar, it’s over way too soon.

My latest purchase is a Spyderco Manix 2. It's a bit of a heavy sucker and the stainless steel liners under the G10 handle slabs certainly don't help. It's my second knife with 154cm blade steel, and I'm a big fan. It holds an edge beautifully, but diamond stones are a must if you want to sharpen the edge without taking forever.
Do any of you play?
If you do, leave your name as a comment.

Busy as ever this last little bit, between working a shittonne and now school gets thrown into the mix. Going to try to get back into the regularly scheduled posting.
I've also got a friend's blog to plug here, his girlfriend and him contribute to it. So if you've got a girlfriend (who isn't your hand) and want to get her into playing video games, click here to check it out.

Whilst keeping up with all of you, here are some tips to make the blogging experience move faster and also make life easier for me:
1. Remove captcha from your blog comments. In your Dashboard, go to the Settings tab>>Comments>>Settings>>Show word verification for comments? Select No. Though captcha deters the unwelcome spammer, it just makes life easier for most of us.
4. When you visit my blog and like what you see, please post a comment. I have captcha turned off to make it easy. Those who comment tell me who are the more active supporters/followers. When I make my daily rounds, I start off by looking at the comments of my most recent posting.

The iPod nano has been completely redesigned. The new version is almost half the size and weight of the previous version, and new touch controls let users navigate through their playlist simply by tapping or swiping the screen with a finger. It also features a sleek, aluminum and glass casing with a built-in clip. Of course you lose out on the option for video playback and it's really just a higher-capacity shuffle.
"This is the biggest reinvention of the iPod nano since its debut in 2005, and we think users are going to love it," said Jobs. Availability starts next week, with prices beginning at $149 for the 8GB model, and $179 for the 16GB model.
