Blog Banter #14 – WordPress ate my blog

Welcome to the fourteenth installment of the EVE Blog Banter, the monthly EVE Online blogging extravaganza created by CrazyKinux. The EVE Blog Banter involves an enthusiastic group of gaming bloggers, a common topic within the realm of EVE Online, and a week to post articles pertaining to the said topic. The resulting articles can either be short or quite extensive, either funny or dead serious, but are always a great fun to read! Any questions about the EVE Blog Banter should be directed to Check out other EVE Blog Banter articles at the bottom of this post!

The first banter of 2010 comes to us from the EVE Blog Father, CrazyKinux himself, who asks the following: As we begin another year in New Eden, ask yourselves “What Now?” What will I attempt next? What haven’t I done so far in EVE? Was it out fear, funds, or knowledge? Have I always wanted to start my own corporation, but have never dared doing so? Is there a fledging mercenary waiting to come out of its shell? Or maybe an Industrialist? What steps and objectives will I set myself to accomplish in order to reach my ultimate goal for this year? EVE is what you make of it. So, what is it going to be for you?

Well after writing a 2500 word post for this months’ blog banter, WordPress decided to log me out, and upon going back, my new post was empty and not auto-saved. I couldn’t be arsed into trying to rewrite it either, which is a shame, as it was actually a really good in character post with a nice dream sequence of large breasted Hellcats and Empress Sarum Jamyl I. Maleatu was in the post, as was PyjamaSam; even Lady Grey got mention. There was roundabout talk of the adventures of my business advisor and her new plans of setting up a high sec research lab, as well as the continually dropping financial status of my assets. Finally had some revelation while talking to myself in the mirror, realizing the decisions I had been struggling with recently were already made in my heart the moment the question arose. and once I quit rationalizing to myself I would take action.

That was nowhere near as entertaining as my original post. Damn you WordPress!

So what is Eve Online going to be for me this year? Very interesting; very interesting indeed. I truly hope you stay tuned.

  1. Been there. I write almost all of my posts in Word/Write/Google Docs, then copypasta it in, which helps prevent the long-blog-logout issue.
