Yet another useless unused forum has been added to the Internet.  Another place for spammers for other Counties to post adds for Viagra, watches and work at home scams.  Of course I will delete these.

Just in case any of my tools start to become popular, their user-base will have a central place to whine at me when stuff goes awry or if they have a great new idea for a tool. The reason that I know it will never be used? Simple, after three months of the tools being available and used by other people then just my friends, I have never received any feedback, through my feedback/comment form.

Since one of the main goals for Brettski’s EVE Tools is that it works from the IGB, my choice of forum software was very thin. After looking around for some time for a forum with a basic format (worst being nested div and table tags), I chose punbb. It’s a php based forum without a lot of bells and whistles, but it runs quick. A user or programmer of punbb, had a mod which was made specifically for EVE-Online. That mod is out of development, but he followed it up with a stand alone forum for EVE’s IGB called evebb. It’s not a bad piece of software and works with EVE‘s embedded features, but I really just wanted a plain forum that works well and could be displayed in a simple format. Punbb should do it for me for now. I just hope they keep developing it.

For those of you who enjoy EVE Online, I have built some tools for you. Sure there are others out there like these, but there are mine. They contain:

  • Skill Calculator, with end date
  • End Date Calculator, based of days, hours, minutes, and seconds left in training
  • Mining Calculator, for a selected miner, shows you your rate of mining based on your skills. Displays time required to mine all types of ore.
  • Miner Yield, put in the installed yield of your miner(s) and find out how long you can fill a can and how many batches of ore you will have to refine.

Find these tools at eve.brettski.com

They are at it again! Sony is increasing subscription cost on their online games. Planetside is going up $2 a month, this is an increase from $13 to $15. It sure makes the game a lot less attractive. They haven’t done a lot of updates to it over the last few years and are now coming our with a large CE (combat engineering) update. The reason for the update is the usual, due to bandwidth costs and continual updates we need more money. The thing is, the number of subscribers is way, way down, and increasing costs isn’t going to improve that. The days of huge battles lasting hours are gone, there just isn’t the same number of players anymore. Recently the “old-timers” are playing new characters under the reserves program. This is basically free play up to battle rank 6–Enough BR to allow specialization in one thing–still fun, if people where on. For you EQ2 (Ever Quest 2) fans, and station pass holders, those prices are going up too, a station pass will be $30 (up from $25)! That is asking a lot from your subscribers. I guess I get to sit back and watch as Sony screws the pooch once again with it’s online gaming division.
