Bay Area Meetup

Not a lot going on in EVE today. I moved a few more ships through an out-of-the-way WH route. It wasn't ally that bad really, and was definitely easier than cyno jumping or moving the ships through known space. I'll be trying to get some action going tonight, see what I can stir up. I've been having better luck with socket closing error lately too. I don't know if it's anything I've done or if there was something on CCP's side, but hopefully things are leveling out.

I also took the first steps towards organizing a Bay Area meetup. There's supposedly a monthly get-together in the South Bay, but I have two issues with it:

  1. It's far, far away for people like me in the East Bay.
  2. It doesn't seem to be well advertised.
I want to do something a little more irregular, but a little larger. I also want to do something that's a bit more accessible to the entire Bay Area and those who are coming from outside of it, something more centralized.

I don't know when it's going to be yet, sometime in mid September if things go smoothly. Bam Stoker gave me some good advice, which was to hold it at one location for a long time so that people coming in late will have an easier time of meeting up. I'm looking at doing the first one at a brewery. Hopefully that will be a good, fun place to hang out for quite a few hours. If the party is still rolling we can always start bar crawling.

I created the in-game channel "Bay Area Meetup", so if you live in the area, you're going to be visiting soon, or if you just want to chat feel free to come on by.
