MicroWarpCast - Episode #2

The second episode of MicroWarpCast is a bit of a behemoth at just shy of 70 minutes. That's part of why it's coming out today and not on Saturday, as I had wished. This week's EVE news was prolific and so it explains why YoMma and I want over an hour to go through it all.

Nevertheless I think it's a good show, full a great news and some chunky discussions. Did I just write chunky? So it seems...

NO! Not FLY SAFE! FLY RECKLESS!

Excellent Podcast guys. I love hearing all your thoughts and the resulting discussions.

Serious Sally said...

WOW, thanks for the highlight CK. Really appreciate it. :) glad to see my hard work(and lack of sleep apparently) getting noticed! :)

CrazyKinux said...

@Silicon Buddha - Hopefully with time, we'll get into some sort of arguments, and spice things up a bit!

@Serious Sally - Eh, you deserve some recognition for all your hard work! And I did have to shorten my already short 5-6 hours of sleep in order to get you this podcast on Sunday. So I know what it feels like!!

Letrange said...

um... didn't CCP reverse decision on the age limit when they realized it would exclude LaVista Vista? Thought I read that somewhere...

CrazyKinux said...

@Letrange - That would explain why I saw an advert in EON#13 about his candidacy. I'll try to chat with him today.

YoMma said...

@Letrange, if that is the case - it slipped through my nets. I remember the controversy, but not that resolution. Good news though!!

Really appreciate the mention guys. Thank you.

But yeah, last week I was pretty much chained to my laptop... felt like a biz journalist again *shudders*. Seriously though, I was pretty happy about that deluge of dev blogs and general news items. Interesting times.

Great podcast by the way. Nice mix of informative content and humor, cool music tracks as well. Keep up the good work.

LaVista Vista said...

CK told me to post here to just explain what happened. So I better do that since he is going to fanfest as well, and I expect him to buy me beer :-)

One afternoon I got a mail from CCP saying that they were going to impose this new rule and they were sorry about the fact it would affect me, however I wasn't the reason why they were going to impose it.

That same afternoon EON went into press
I tried to get hold of Zapatero, however as I managed to get hold of him it had literally JUST started pressing. So there was no way back at all. So even if I hadn't been running, the advert would still have been there.

After a week or so and lots of rabble on the forum, I sent a long email to CCP telling them why I think they sucked for doing it and a few days later they postponed the rule and extended the deadline.

So it ended up well either way. So now I just gotta hope I get elected in, else I won't be able to run for another 4 years :(

@ LaVista Vista, (as it stands) the age limitation *will* still go into effect, beginning with the 3rd Council rather than the 2nd?

This is good news, Mr. Vista, as you were my primary choice to represent the EVE player community.
More than likely, I will vote for you again- and happily so!

CrazyKinux: Your second podcast was just as entertaining as the first. Great work!

Good podcast guys. It's great to hear that LaVista -- we industrial folk need someone there to champion our cause. P.S. You need to do another WDA podcast!
