Fun, games and mayhem - Ed's journal
Fun, games and mayhem
Well, the first disaster thus far has been the backup server 'not playing nice'. One tape drive jamming, and another totally dead.

No wonder there'd been 'a few problems' with it. Following on from yesterdays idea for doughnuts to the backup server, can you imagine the look on the support engineer's face when he comes to clean a "jammed" tape drive with a screwdriver, only to realise that we actually mean it has been jammed in the more literal sense :)

Tuesday night on EVE marked my first player kill. OK, so it was one of the events team, on a mission to recover some stolen star charts, but never the less, it was good fun, and a major adrenaline rush. More there I think. (Got the kill on a cruisers, and an assist on the battleship.)

Maelstrom fast approaches, being on friday. I am now able to drive, and I don't anticipate having problems doing so to Maelstrom. My concern is that I'm going to be of marginal use with setting up and striking camp. So I'm rather afraid my contribution towards group activity will be along the lines of supplying beer (or other supplies). I'm fairly certain, I'm afraid, that I'll need assistance even putting up my tent. (Although it'll be that usefully large '2 person + standing up room' so can offer a place to sleep).

This may change in the next week, and if it does, I'll be more than delighted, but assuming it doesn't, is there someone who wouldn't mind lending me a hand to set up?

Oh, and whilst I remember, go vote today. The choices may not be appealing, but writing poetry or "none, they're all wankers" across the ballot slip remains an option.

I will give you a hand in putting the tent up. Is it going to be IC this time? Given that you have a couple of cricket pitches worth of camo-net :)

That's the plan.
Doubly so, if it means I don't have to walk back and forth across the site.

I suspect if Kev's joining us, he may be somewhat appreciative of a place to sleep near the IC camp. Not quite sure how we're fixed to tent space mind.

Putting your tent up is easy.. I don't mind giving you a hand.

If your costume stats to get in teh way let me know and we can adjust it to fit:)

Don't worry about feeling like a loose end. Judging by last event's efficient take down I think we wil do fine (probably better if you sit and give us moral support from the sidelines:D)

Thanks :).
I just feel frustrated at having to 'watch' people do stuff that I feel I should be helping with.
