New PCU Record

I thought EVE was dying?  (sarcasm)

According to a thread on EVE’s forums, backed up with a post from CCP Explorer, EVE achieved a new concurrent user record of “45,186 online pilots at 20:41 GMT”.  No word yet on the level of lag the game was experiencing at the time, but since the thread is on page two without any significant complaints I’d say things were pretty reasonable.

Not too shabby, guys. :)

Community News, EON Wall Planner 2009

Kicking off a new Community News section of the site was something I’ve been hoping to do a long time ago.  It’s a way to get some of the news of EVE to you faster, filtering out the noise to bring some of the more interesting happenings to you sooner than before.  Note that this is not a replacement for the WDA podcast, but more of a supplement to it.  Feel free to leave feedback and let me know what you think. :)

I’ve talked the state of the podcast here and on my blog at winterblink.com, and haven’t podfaded.  Real life intrudes, every so often, and Urban and I are just going through some crazy busy seasons at work.  So stay tuned to my personal blog and here for more information on that as things develop.
