I haven’t post a business report for a long time. The reason is simple: I’m still trading the same implants as almost a year ago, there isn’t much competition. What’s the reason for this post then?

This is the amount of money I made with trading. I don’t have this …

Poetic Stanziel: The Killmail Monopoly

Until CCP makes some fundamental changes to the killmail API, there’s hardly any reason for third-party developers trying to develop any new killmail apps, website or otherwise.
Eve-Kill (also affiliated with zKillboard) and Battleclinic will continue to have a complete monopoly on …

Why there are no NPC Team mates

Leak: GSF CEO Update – Slouching Towards Bethlehem

Mittens is back from the E3, here is the usual CEO Update, feel free to discuss it in a liberal and unmoderated environment.
