Time enough to fly

The last few weeks have been so busy that I've barely had time to spend playing EVE. A while back I had a poll on the number of hours one spends playing EVE in a week. The poll is still up there (on the top right). The idea had come after reading a great article from Robin Torres over at Massively entitled "Gamer Interrupted: You can be a great parent, spouse and gamer".

As a new dad, I'm currently struggling to find the right schedule for me. One where I'm able to dedicate as much of my time to my daughter, to my wife, to work, while finding time to play EVE and enjoy my other hobbies. It hasn't been easy and I'm still working on that schedule. As a result, EVE time has been going down lately. Before becoming a dad, I used to play EVE a good 20-30 hours a week with relative ease. These day it's more like 5-10, and the last two weeks even less. True that it's the end of the year, and I'm swamped at work. So I'm hopeful things should calm down soon and I should be able to get back to a more normal pace.

As for EVE, and the new Trinity upgrade, I took these shots last night, after finally being able to sit a few hours and enjoy the new graphics. There should be more of these soon, as well as an update on the Rags to Richies contest. I owe you one Drew!
