I'm in United States, Eastern time.
I'm trying to figure out what time the new patches go live, my time.

Today is the 2:20pm EST on Feb 8th, for me.

I dont know what time/zone/etc CCP is located.

The server will go offline 06:00am EST your time, so you are 5 hours behind eve time and usually take 15 -20 mins and its online again, provided theres no issues.

Does it matter? extractors are (as expected) expensive enough that there won't be much of a market. With the ISK/ $ ratio from plex at the moment I'd wager a filled injector to cost 677m for 500k SP. Put another way SP obtained through injectors would be at minimum 60% more expensive than regular training.

Cost worked out from:
257m for extractor at 1.258b ISK / £17 with extractor cost at $5 (£3.47)
420m for the SP at 1/3 the price of a PLEX, the only way to obtain SP in the first place, assuming no personal value of the SP
677m total cost to buy the 500k SP

Actually if the price is 999 aur

x / 999 aur = 1.258B isk / 3500 aur

so x = 359 M isk

Thus the expected price would be around 780 M isk. If instead you consider 800 aur as the price of an extractor, which is the least you can get by buying 10 of them, you get around 710 M isk.

BUT

there are also people like me who have some ~2000 AUR left since the summer of rage (gift from CCP), and may decide to spend it to make some isk.

I, too, am excited about the imminent prospect of frittering my RL money away at the latest shiny thing that CCP dangles in front of me

What I'm excited about is everybody else frittering away their RLmoney on the latest shiny thing, who then flood the market to the point that I'll be buying SP for next to nothing with in-game currency.

Actually as said here that next to nothing will be around 700m minimum.

It would be interesting to see how much Aur has been purchased already, through account management.

I haven't spent any of the Aur given to any of my chars and from the look of this won't be anytime soon.

What is said here in the (relatively) calm discussion of a topic is much different than being one of the 30,000 people that put their skills on the market in a panic to sell before the bottom drops out of the market.

In Windows 8 (other versions are similar):

1. Click on the time at the bottom right.
2. Click on "Change date and time settings..."
3. Click on the tab "Additional Clocks".
4. Check the box "Show this clock".
5. Set "Select time zone:" to "(UTC) Coordinated Universal Time".
6. Set "Enter display name:" to "EVE"
7. Click "OK".

To see EVE time, click on the time at the bottom right. Two clock faces appear now, one with EVE time.

Unlike UTC, true GMT is an oddity in that it isn't defined for sub-second resolution, and it doesn't honour leap seconds (it can't go backwards, only forwards), but nearly every implementation that uses GMT ignores those facts.

Eastern Standard Time: UTC - 5
Eastern Daylight Time: UTC - 4
