Greetings All,

It would appear that our founder, Morning Maniac has found the time to start playing some again. If you see him online, please feel free to thank him for starting this wonderful place. He really is a friendly and nice person, one that took an idea to help people and turned it into the best known place in EVE Online for newbies to go. In the dark early days, he was always there, passing out ships and modules, giving a helping hand and offering friendly advice. Many times during the nasty early wars, he was the only one able to field a battleship and often gave fire support and cover to our newbie mobs of puppies with sharp teeth. He was the Uni's first capital pilot, fielding a carrier during the Siege of Big Blue when we fought MC and by their own words, gave them a better fight than many of their usual targets. He was there when the Uni took the leap into drone space, using his carrier to supply fighter support to the defenders of the Uni Pocket.

For me, he's always there in the background when I play or think about EVE. I was on the verge of giving up on this game when I ran across a thread on the boards about how Mentl had war decced the Uni and I thought that was just wrong. Forget Chribba, Morning Maniac to me is the nicest and most trustworthy person in Eve Online, past, present or future. I hope you all get the chance to meet him.

Three Cheers for Morning Maniac!
Huzzah!
Huzzah!
Huzzah!

Welcome back MM! Thanks for everything you did for the capsuleers, and of course for the EVE University ! I moved to TGRADs before EVE University's 15th Anniversary but hoping to meet you soon either in space or via voice comms during your meeting :)

/me blushes

Thank you for your kind words Silent. And please, don't forget about Cribba :) Funny things is that back in the day I was approached a few times to broker super capital ship deals, I just felt it was too much a hassle and distraction of what I wanted to do.

Anyway, while we're handing out praise, let me tell you guys about Silentbrick, a nice guy except to our enemies ;) Back in the day we would be at war quite often and many times people were just sitting in stations, spinning ships because our enemies would camp the stations we were in. People were complaining about how these hostiles had superior skills and ships. But as soon as Silentbrick came online things started changing. Instead looking at the enemy he looked at our guys: who is available? What can you do? And then as a regular space McGuyver he would make that work. So often he came up with out of the box fleets that just worked. If you ever get a chance to fly with him, take it. You will learn a lot.

MM

I've gone into hibernation again. Still, it was cool to hang out with unistas again, and also to see some of the new stuff.
