Although I am pretty broke most of the time, so I don’t know how many of these I will actually be able to play. Lucky for me though I have friends who buy tons of games. But I will say that I will definitely be getting the Starcraft 2 expansion, even if I have to eat Ramen noodles for a month.
In an unexpected move, the online anonymous group known as “The Lulz Boat” claimed on their twitter account to have “wiped out” the login server for Eve Online. In the process of doing so, they claim to off taking down the EveOnline.com server as well.
The Lulz Boat, colloquially known as “lulsec”, has, in past days, targeted several gaming websites, services, and companies like Sony, PBS, Nintendo and Bethesda.
So far we have no information on the motivations or reasons for which the claimed attacks has been launched, the group also claimed attacks on video game site The Escapist Magazine (Those bastards!) and the Minecraft website.
Regarding CCP, they haven’t neither acknowledged or denied LulzSec’s claim.
Back to playing EVE. I found a number of good improvements that I am happy about, especially with Planetary Interaction. Next month they are going to release Incarna, which lets you walk around a bit. Looking forward to that. They also have a new character creator, so I had to remake my portrait. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to give my guy his crazy Heihachi hair, but ah well.
Well I walked on Saturday and I just got my final grade back today. I managed to pull of a 4.0 for the entire degree. It is a shame that they don’t give any Latin honors for graduate students. I never got any as an undergrad because I was such a slacker back then. Ah well. Now I have the summer to relax and take care of many things that have been pushed aside from schoolwork. I have been playing some WoW, thinking about writing, doing some reading, and making preparations for my Ph.D. this fall.
