Or as a support engineer for one of the top 3 printer manufacturers told us (off the record) a few years back "Officially there is nothing wrong, unofficially the driver is seriously bugged and can require a reinstall of windows to fix the issues it creates - but our legal department has said we are to deny any faults and are not even to patch the bug because of the litigation risk."

The most amusing thing from last year was people whining about the free Leopard and how it was useless and why didn't they get proper freebies :D The thing still sells for close to 100 mill in most hubs.



I remember when people were griping about the Gnosis....

That moment when you realize the crazy lady with all the cats was right...

In 2013 the video talking about Yule Lads was released on Dec 12. Hints in the files of some things that could be gifts have already surfaced. Chances are we will be getting some sort of event, but New Eden is not like America. Holidays stay in their appropriate months ;-)

If we could get a single "Reconstructed Wraith" frigate, than I'd be happy- I would absolutely love to fly an Eidolon, but that doesn't look likely in the near future- hopefully the Jovians will give me one for being so dedicated to them once they come back Blink

I, for another, welcome our potential Jovian overlords.
Declared my loyalty to them in Falcon's thread, even.

So are you trying to tell us that they are an unknown known, that may infact become a known unknown, but at this time is infact an unknown unknown?


Donald Rumsfeld? I haven't heard from you in a while.

There are known knowns. These are things we know that we know. There are known unknowns. That is to say, there are things that we know we don't know. But there are also unknown unknowns. There are things we don't know we don't know.

At first I was like, "What are these guys talking about?" and "Yule Lads? Is that a christmas themed boys band or something?"

But thankfully, I'm skilled in Google Analytic Research V and quickly found what everyone was on about!

At first I was confused. Then amused! When those thirteen "fine" specimens of folklore characters (???) blew up Santa's Stratios, I lost it!

Yay for Icelandic holiday celebrations! Getting presents from a guy that eats candles really takes the cake for a foreign ancient folklore tradition!

They aren't seeded into Sisi markets neither, albeit the whole "Eternity" sets are viewable (suit, top and boots). Sad

We've already gotten unlimited skill ques and about to get no more clone upgrades... what else could we possibly need from the Yule Lads?

With all the layoffs it's just "Yule Lad" this year. (Sorry I had to..)

If Falcon isn't a Yule Lad I will eat a fire themed hat.
