A new direction
Since we've gone our separate ways for the most part, I'm thinking of turning this site from a corporation site, to a more general Eve Community site.

This means:
  • feel free to invite friends

  • post fits for ships you like

  • write up how-to's to do things (like PI, or probing, or moon mining)

  • have fun!

The Legion LIVES!
Over the weekend we had a resurgence in activity in the Legion! Carnes and Crooked Spoon both logged in and started playing again! Thanks to Carnes' quick actions we were able to get a vote for CEO going and elect a new CEO!


Ok, so enough of that. Here's the deal, we've decided to reform the legion with some major changes. The Legion will primarily be focused on PvP and combat (ie: anything that requires shooting the legion will do, that include missions). Those of you who are industrial characters, fret not! We have a place for you too! ONYX Heavy Industries is where we've been moving our alts/mains. There are many old friends in that corp, including borked, and prospectress. The corp is currently based out of Caldari space, but has Wormhole operations going too (Kran, Apoll0s, and DOCTOR MINDBENDER are all in the wormhole atm). ONYX is very established and looks like a good place for us to relax and make isk after a day of fighting and blowing up ships.

This being said, we will start letting people go (read kicked) from the corp who have not been online in more than a month. This is not because we don't love you, or you've done something wrong, but we need to get our member count down to a more realistic number. Those who still want to be part of the Black Mesa family are welcome to join either ONYX or LGNBM depending on where your specialty is.

Other news: the killboard has been updated to the most recent version, if any issues arise, please let me know (krandor).

Possible new lifeblood
Legion of Black Mesa might have a new CEO soon, which means that anyone who wants can reapply and join back up. For the most part i think Legion will be used as a non-wormhole arm of those of us in Onyx. Plus we want to be able to use some of the assets Legion still has.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
Yup, to all of you out there!

I just wanted to say thanks to all of you who have come through the ranks of Black Mesa. Even if we've moved on to other corps or other games, I'll still count you guys as friends!

Have a good one!

Is Black-Mesa winding down?
Does anyone else have the feeling that Eve is becoming a grind? I let one of my accounts lapse (Lord Klyde) and I am wondering if it is just me or is it more common than I think.

I know I haven't been on much lately.

Is anybody going to play come this fall?

Does anyone still visit the website?

Just wondering....

Corp Bill...
So for those of you who haven't been paying attention.. We've (even if just temporarily) implemented a 10M isk per month bill for each character. This has been done so we can afford the (possible) 500M isk alliance bill which will be due at the end of the month. But after Saturday's planned and Sunday's impromptu ice mining op in 6L, we may have a few ways of paying this bill on just the corp wallet, or atleast lowering the per character amount.

Even with the low participation on the ice mining ops we were able to bring in about 100M worth of Ozone, Isotopes, and Strontium. That was about 350-400ish blocks total. I know Malk probably has the exact numbers. So you could imagine what we could do if we had 6 or more mackinaws out there instead of just 3 macks , one hulk, and one retriever.

Anyway. Just so you all know, we're expecting each player to take care of their share of the alliance bill. Until we hear otherwise, we're going to assume that alts are also included in this, so each character will be responsible for 10M isk. So, I (Krandor) will be responsible for 20M isk, where as someone like Malk (who only has his one character) will only be responsible for 10M. This is done just in case we do need to pay per character, and not per player. If it turns out it'll be per player, we'll figure out a way to credit those who paid for their other characters (maybe have the extra isk go toward another month).

There have been some other ideas brought up on how to pay the bill, which we will discuss on the corp forums. Go there and please let us hear your input!

For those of you who think you'll have trouble making 10M for the corp bill, please say something! We'll be sure to help you out in some way. Spoon and I go ratting in 0.0 pretty much nightly, and you're welcome to join on those runs. Plus it'll work on our team building

Oh gawd..i just used Corporate Terminology....

Blogging Software
For those of you interested in blogging about your Eve experiences (here), you can also download blogging tools to help you with your posts.

Wordpress has a nice list of clients.

The pros to using one of these clients should be pretty straight forward.
1)You don't have to log into the site to make a post
2)You can save your drafts locally (if the client supports it), so you don't have to worry about other people looking at what you're going to be writing about (like me )
3)It makes life simpler
4)There's a list of pros on the client list page (linked above)

If you have any questions or want an opinion on what to use, just ask me here, on the forums, in corp chat, or send me an eve mail.

As of right now, i've only used Deepest Sender (for windows) and Ecto (for mac). Right now i'm liking Ecto a lot, though i haven't really messed with it that much. Deepest Sender is also available as a Firefox Addon, so that's pretty convenient. You can do your own research into each of the clients (there's plenty of choice) and decide what fits your tastes best.
