About CrazyKinux's Musing

How to reach or connect with me



Welcome to CrazyKinux's Musing - The EVE Online blog where you'll find everything you need about this MMORPG and how to enjoy it!

My name is David "CrazyKinux" Perry and in my spare time I play video games, amongst which EVE Online is the one I dedicate the most time.

From Gamer to Blogger
Video games were never a passion as a child. I never played with an N64 or other types of console, neither did I spend much time on computer games. Then about ten years ago, a friend bought me Diablo II. That was the beginning of my journey through the meanderings of the digital gaming world. Having spent a good part of my youth playing various tabletop RPGs, the leap to the electronic world wasn't too strenuous. After Diablo, the inevitable StarCraft, Warcraft, Dungeon Siege, Homeworld and the likes started to fill the shelves of my bookcases. Over the years, I've build up a game collection anyone would be proud of. Well I am anyways!

Then about five years ago, I came across a new kind of game, one that went far beyond the games I had played so far, the MMORPG. The game in question was EVE Online: The Second Genesis. In 2004, after upgrading to a capable PC, I joined the world of capsuleers and never looked back.

Why CrazyKinux's Musing

I started this blog because I wanted to share my opinions on MMORPG, gaming, and on EVE Online. Slowly over the weeks, then month, I narrowed the subjects of my posts to the point where today, most if not all of them are on EVE Online. Over the two years I've kept this blog, I've added lists upon lists of sites and resources I use regularly while exploring EVE. It seems I'm not the only one that appreciates these.

So I hope you enjoy your visit and come back on a regular basis. While you're here, take the opportunity to comment a few posts and let me know what you think. I'm always happy to discuss various subjects pertaining to this wonderful virtual world called EVE Online.

[May 2008 Update]
I've recently joined the ranks of MMO bloggers over at Massively.com. My column is entitled Have Clone, Will Travel and will be a (bi-) weekly feature on EVE Online. Drop by and let me kow your thoughts any time!


[September 2008 Update]
So I've added this little video intro to tour the site and help new readers get the most out of this blog. Took me about twenty attempts before I got it tight, and was proud enough to upload the video. If one thing is certain, it's that I always enjoy making a fool of myself! So, what do you think of the video?


[June 2009 Update]
Massively.com has just published an interview about me, this site and the podcasts I do. Have a read and let me know your thoughts!

[Disclaimer] I may receive compensation from others I mention on http://www.crazykinux.ca. You should probably assume I do. Or not. Most often though, I'll promote products, games, magazines, movies, computer hardware, (etc) for free, simply because I want to. Regardless, I only recommend products, games, magazines, movies, computer hardware and other such things I use personally and believe will be good for my readers. I'm not disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising" since I'm Canadian and that law doesn't apply to me. I'm doing it simply to shut the Trolls up! You know who you are!

Heya,

Like Mike above, I'm also interested in a link exchange. I'm building a blog/forum/etc. for the EVE-O corp some friends and I started a few weeks ago and have been steadily growing. We're just getting started, but we're going to be around for quite a while. I've been looking at others' blogs for ideas and insights into what I should do with ours and I like alot of what you've got going on here.

The more traffic and input I can get pointed at our site, the more quickly it'll evolve into a more complete internet entity like yours.

Check us out at defiasblog.insurmountablelogic.com and let me know if you're interested.
(I've set the blog and forum up on subdomains of insurmountablelogic.com which I own; also, please keep in mind that we're just starting with the website, so there's a touch of incompleteness left to resolve once we decide what would be most advantageous in those areas)

Fly safe,
Ern

Hello,

I'm Susan, of the TechnoSnack's team and I wish to inform you that we are opening a new blog aggregator about Computers & Internet news.
We put it on-line some hours ago and the link is: http://www.technosnack.com.

The main objective of this project is creation of a "virtual dashboard" of posts coming from many specialized blog and information about Computers & Internet world, with news about Linux, Windows, Mac, Open sources, Security, Graphics, Symbian and more on...

The key feature is that news come directly from blogosphere. We wish to show a preview of posts, with a link "Read more..." to signed blogs. If users are interested in news, they are redirected to your blog and can read entire post directly from your blog!

So, the different signed blogs can increase their visibility and reach more visitors, all over the world!

We think that in a little of time it can send more visitors to re gistered blogs, contributing to diffusion of know-how about Computer and Technology world.

I visited your blog and I think it has very interesting and useful posts!

So, are you interested in this idea, with your blog?
If yes, then you can register your blog, using the specific "Registration Form"!

REGISTRATION IS ABSOLUTELY FREE!

The only thing we ask to you is to insert TechnoSNACK banner in your blog to promote this project. Or, if you prefer, you can insert a link in your blogroll.

If you like (we whould be happy, but it is not mandatory :-), you can write a post regarding TechnoSNACK project in your blog, to promote this idea.

Bye!
Susan - TechnoSnack's Team

OMG! A handsome nerd! What IS the world coming to! Nice summary CK. Do more!

CrazyKinux said...

You're too sweet Mynxee! Thanks! =)

James Egan said...

Cool, David. It's great that you're so active in the community. You've really been putting a lot of effort into making the EVE community more cohesive and it shows -- the Blog Pack in particular is a fantastic idea. CrazyKinux's Musing is a treasure trove of information for me, both as a player and as someone who keeps an eye on what's happening with the game.

This is a site that every EVE player should have bookmarked.

CrazyKinux said...

Thanks for the kind words James. I have indeed invested a lot of time and effort in building and helping out the EVE Community.

The Community is what drives EVE's success and if I can help in anyway, if I can make a difference for a new player starting up, than I'm accomplished my goals.

You yourself, have been a great help in driving folks here with your pimping of this blog and its various posts. For that I thank you dearly!! =)

Manasi said...

Mynxee calls you handsome eh...? :) Better watch out there might be a kidnapping of CK by the hellcats! Hold him for ransom ladies I'll bet you get loads of money! Great video hoss, I liked it. Cheers and whatever else they say in Canada to someone who has done a kick ass job!

CrazyKinux said...

Kidnapped? Woh!!! Never thought of that one. Better get myself some Minmatar bodyguards!

Hello,

I am a new player, I would like to hear you veterans' thoughts on the mission nerf (reduction in quality of loot table/salvaging and more importantly how agents will give you low sec missions. )
