Coo' khoo... ;)

Safe to say he would only leave for something utterly amazing. The amount of job offers he's turned down is probably more than most humans apply for in a lifetime.

Back when I really paid attention to PA, I remember one of the early stories they told about Robert. In business school there was an exercise where multiple parties try to negotiate with each other while holding "nuke" cards among other actions. During the process, everyone agreed to peacefully tear up their nuke cards at Robert's instigation. After which, Robert holds up his *actual* nuke card and says "now here's what you're all going to do for me".

You can treat a hybrid drive the same as you would a platter drive, as the perks are "transparent". Partitioning will keep data physically bound to a region and reduce physical fragmentation. It is also a matter of convenience to control your mounting points/drive letters as you wish.

Would I partition my 480 GB SSD? No. Would I partition a theoretical 4 terabyte SSD? Possibly, for the convenience.

I can honestly say it's unusual for me to meet a woman who doesn't play games. Video, MMO, tabletop, mobile or otherwise.

Particularly the alt community is good for it. I have one friend who plays Mario World on her SNES as most of her activity, and another was just chatting about her progress farming covenant items in DkS3.

Hasn't been a notable surprise case for me in a long time. The stats are real. Glad you're having fun with it, and coming out is fine, it encourages good vibes.

Regionally I'm sure there are very different perspectives. Being in Japan as long as I have, means I can walk through an arcade and not be even slightly surprised to remark "oh there's a woman over 30 by herself playing Street Fighter, she likes E.Honda for some reason."

I came here tonight to congratulate Kite Co for being the 6th largest independent corp on EveWho, as of this timestamp (still).

Then there's a whole post about an exodus from a Hordie, shunning EVE University while giving a who's who of /r/Eve shitpoasters. Well fucking shots fired.

Actually I hate the political BS in EVE, but it's fun to pretend. :p Anyway let me tell you guys a few favourite stories from my almost 2 years in E-Uni. I progressed up to the management level and saw how a lot of the sausage gets made, so you're free to ask me questions (make sure I get a notification). One thing about EVE is a lot of players have an opinion of E-Uni policies that is several years out of date. Every year things relax a little more.

Do you like wikis? E-Uni's wiki is where the developers of the game go to look up information, because their official one falls out of date far quicker. Do you like Waffles? E-Uni is a feeder corp to most alliances in the game, and boasts the largest spy network in the universe. Most corporations will waive their skillpoint prerequisites in a big way for E-Uni graduates, because demonstrated ability trumps those big numbers (that as of this week, you can increase with a credit card!) One of my buddies from my days as a mentee went on from losing battleships in high security space to become a director in Waffles, gives presentations at EVE Vegas, and is still working up the command chain in Pandemic Legion, all while teaching free guest lectures under the Uni's umbrella.

Do you like to swear? Well, you're fucking out of luck on that one. You can say whatever the Simpsons say, otherwise there are all ages and genders on Uni comms, and grownups who don't need their children overhearing you rant about Black Legion spies. The previous CEO of EVE University is a former Sony game developer who designed the anti-cheat tech on Planetside 2, and will come drop phat bombs of knowledge and sass in the public channels. Also his Steam level is much higher than mine. Ultimately the Uni is a place you plan to leave, but the culture fits very well with certain types of players who become old furniture, and it's all meritocracy so anyone can turn their passion for the game into a role that makes the game better for other players.

What can't you do in E-Uni? You can't earn income from faction warfare, and you can't live in sovereign nullsec. It's also difficult to participate in alliance tournaments. You can, however, become champion of a NPC royal house, and have the developer of the game fly you to Iceland to compete the tournament's final round live on stage during Fanfest.
