This year, Fanfest will be supporting Barnaspítali Hringsins with fundraising, which is the Icelandic Children’s Hospital specializing in providing long term care for children who require treatment for a variety of heathy issues including cancer and diabetes as well as cardiovascular and neurlogical issues.


"heathy" should read "health"
"neurlogical" should read "neurological"

Ok proofreading mode off, nice idea and I hope you raise a good chunk of £$ from it.

the disks have been cleaned, right?

how to fix eve: 1) remove ECM 2) rename dampeners to ECM 3) add new anti-drone ewar for caldari 4) give offgrid boosters ongrid combat value

The hardware will be auctioned as decoration, with no guarantee that it's working.

However, it was all working when it was removed from Tranquility. Big smile


LMAO best answer ever!

A few mandatory questions:

  • Is it going to be shipped or we'll have to arrange to bring it home ourselves (including the ackward discussion with the custom officer)?
  • What size are they? How much do they weight?
  • Do we have spec or model or any information on the hardware?
  • I'm assuming it'll come stripped of all hard disks?



  • You'll have to take them home from Fanfest with you.
  • They're 30mm form factor blades, so they'll easily fit into a suitcase or large carry on bag and weigh about 2kg at most. Smile
  • They're LS20 model blades.
  • Hard disks are still fitted to most of them, as far as I'm aware, but they'll be auctioned as seen.

Please make the blades available via ebay or something that people who can't attend. This would go great with my blizzard one.

Would it be possible to have one or two blades put aside and have raffle tickets for them? I'm not sure about others but i had to save up for some time to get my hands on a ticket for fanfest not sure i will be able to win any bidding wars when i do get there. I don't know how much they will auction for it would be nice to buy a ticket and have a chance at a great piece like this.

Aw, as much I'd like to have this, I already have two HP DL380s (a G6 and a G7 respectively with dual Xeons and 32GB of RAM in each).

Could you please during fanfest 2015 (or in a dev blog) give us an update on:

  • the status of the Brain-in-a-box

  • status on moving the code from Destiny Dispatcher to multi-threading

    In the days of terrorism and overactive airport security.
    What fun.. walking through customs with a server blade discretely placed in a suitcase - Declared or not, airport security is gonna have a field day with you.

    Be sure to use the toilet on the plane before disembarking - Being escorted to the loo in handcuffs once you've landed is not fun.

    My opinions are mine.

      If you don't like them or disagree with me that's OK.- - - - - - Just don't bother Hating - I don't care

    It really is getting harder and harder to justify $23 a month for each sub.
