Almost But Not Quite

A little thrill of excitement pulsed through my core as CCP announced tonights Downtime (DT) would be delayed by an hour but not go longer than the typical half hour.

Which these days is often less than ten minutes anyway.

DT lands right in the middle of our prime gaming time zone in the land "Down Under".

We are the land of "Shrimp on the Barbie".

Well it's actually Prawns and it only started becoming common after the Paul Hogan advert from many years ago.

We also "drink" Fosters beer.

Well ... no.  This is another advertising thing.  We don't drink Fosters.  I don't know anybody who drinks Fosters.  Fosters is something we make the rest of the world drink after we've filtered it through Wombats (interesting fact, they have cubic poo), and dribbled it into cans to export to the world.

Mind you I live in a state where they thought the word "Beer" would be too much of a stretch for the average drinker and decided that "XXXX" would make more sense.

They were totally right.

However, and trying desperately to arrive back in topic here, I decided to visit the Eve Online web site and sure enough...

"Due to database issues experienced today on the 18th of December, we will not be pushing the downtime back by one hour on Wednesday the 19th of December.

We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience and understanding."

Aaaargh CCP why do you hate Australians so?

Push it back by a few hours permanantly, or even into the Kiwi timezone, they only have about a half dozen people and a billion sheep, we they won't care!
