You spend as many hours as I have trying to run it in linux, when it is the only program that does not work, and you have 3 other MMO's up and running.
And then write a how to when you're finished.

actually I think that could be applied to any RL/game activity that involves a route and depends on the culture of the people that travel like that often

for instance I could imagine 18-wheelers asking each other how bad the traffic is on a certain highway in the same way "hows the pipe look?"

This is my morning routine pretty much daily ;o

You're addicted when, instead of going to bed with your missus, you tell her you'll be up in a minute because you want to fix your skillqueue and end up playing for hours more.

If your still here playing a game that hasn't had any "real, meaningful" updates or expansions in the last 3 years. and.. if your still here after the last few years of disappoint after disappoint.

I suppose I fit in this category. I'm still playing. but I can't tell you for how much longer. One more lack-luster year like the last 3 have been and.. well you really CAN have my stuff.

You casually attempt to mould RL activities around planned ops.

"Meet at the pub at 8?"
"9?"

"beach on thursday?"
"weather looks better on wednesday"

Or anything that actively or passively means giving up sex for eve. I am guilty of this on occasion, only a couple of times though for fairly big ops.

Or when you think of your earned RL cash in terms of ISK

"If I'm earning 7/h thats like 15 days gametime or 175m/hr, which is comparable to ingame income, if there is gunna be a bit of traffic it might be better off staying at home" (if only we could reverse the RL > plex process legally)

Or your RL friend is away for his birthday, so instead of waiting to get him something for when hes back you just buy him a thanatos.

You try to check your faction-standings before travelling to a different country.

You're surprised when you can't pay your speeding-fine (120km/h in an 80 zone, ummmm...oops!) in ISK.

When you go to work on Monday and the guys are talking about the weekend, all the girls they hooked up with, how trashed they got at the clubs/bars, etc etc... Then it comes to you..

"We killed a Nyx, it was epic!"

**Don't judge me** ;)

Eve dt is 7am local here, so......

I usually leave for work around 7:15 am or so, sometimes I may log in about 6:30am and update training/do a few jumps/whatever before dt.....

BUT, u know ur addicted when:

Knowing I'll be cutting it real close to making it in to work at 8am, I logged in at 7:25am (dt was only 25 minutes!)...
made 8 jumps to finish a "risky" courier run from a Russian....and VOILA!!!! made it in time to dock/complete contract, AND made it to work just in time :)
