You are unlikely to be eaten by a Grue

This is fairly amusing, and I've been around computers long enough to have played some of the text adventure games back in the day to appreciate the effort expended.

A New Contender

Previously the "award" for the most interesting use of the new avatar customisation tool was Rooli Pelaaja seen here to the left.

He still makes me chuckle.

Past contenders have included the likes of Alotta Baggage, seen here to the left also.

Note the subtle use of makeup.

Now we have a new contender.

Behold Morganta!

Witness the makeup, marvel at the tattoos and wince at the piercings!

Throw in some major forum whoring and we have a challenger to the crown currently held by Rooli.

Who'll be the judge?

Ten for a Pound

These hoodies are out of control!

But what is the secret handshake?

I know the password, it'll be "swordfish", it's always "swordfish".

Fish mongers have an automatic entry to all secret societies as they know all the passwords.

Getting up to Speed

So I left the corporation and alliance, the magic had gone to be replaced with inaction and drudgery, a fair percentage of that from me.

I rejoined my own corporation, I was happy to see me again.

Once all my various characters had finished with the equivalent of an intergalactic kegger we got down to business.

Re-organisation!

Over the coming days, weeks and years I will describe in minute detail what was required to rebuild myself and the corporation around me.

Or not.

I was able to change a few things and bring some order to the chaos.

Happiness reigned once again, all was well.

I have a few hundred people on my contact list for various reasons, so a fairly continuous display of people logging in and out of the game appears in the bottom right hand side of the screen.

Then a long disconnected real life friends name appeared, took me a second to realise what it said.

We chatted for a bit to find out he's once again given up on that MMO whose name shall not be spoken, and come back to Eve Online.

Cool!

Little did I know this would lead to a stampede of returning old friend players, all hell bent on making me take on a position of responsibility once again.

We even had an honest to god recruit from the in game advert service.

I was stunned!!

One night I was sitting there doing some corporation organisation and then it hit me.

Shit I'm a CEO again!!!

Dammit!

It's a dark day when I agree with most of what Mittens (aka The Mittani) has written. While he may be a megalomaniac with an ego the size of a planet some good points are made at the beginning and end of the post.
