It says a lot about EVE Online.

Using the URL given on Eve-fail, my account statistics are...

<createDate>2008-03-23 20:25:00</createDate><logonCount>1481</logonCount><logonMinutes>104158</logonMinutes>

That calculates to just under 1736 total hours of EVE Online over the course of 3 years, 9 months, 1 week, and 5 days. I've spent an average of 70 minutes online per session.

The only thing of note here is that there have only been a total of 1382 days since my capsuleer career began. There were 99 days where I logged in twice. No, that's not completely true. There were a few (not many) days when I could not log in at all for various reasons. Still, I find it interesting that I've devoted some measure of almost every day of my life to playing EVE Online.

In the same amount of time, I've probably slept around 12,000 hours (I am adamant about 8 hours sleep a night.) I know I've spent a good deal more than that amount of time working (especially the first half of last year.)  I've had half a dozen or so week-long vacations. There have been holidays and sick days (but not too many of the latter I'm happy to say.) I exercise an hour a day four or five days a week. I eat dinner at the table with my better half almost every night. I've moved twice. I've had two new computers.

Through all of this I've spent, on average, over an hour of my available time at least once a day flying Internet space ships. The one thing there has not been is time spent playing other games.

I do not think I am all that uncommon among EVE players; quite the contrary. Put I'm still there day after day and year after year.

That says a lot about this game doesn't it?

Fly careful.

Be civil, be responsible and most of all be kind. I will not tolerate poor form. There will be no James Hooks here. We are all better than that.
