About a week ago I suddenly realized I needed a break from EVE, and I decided to basically drop everything at once and stop logging in. I felt bad about doing this, which is why I didn't communicate very well about it. I expected to be in a bad mood for a long time afterwards, but got quite surprised when I suddenly found myself full of energy, and automatically started cleaning up lots of RL stuff that had been neglected for a long time. I suddenly felt like I could do anything, including traveling away from home for more than a day at a time (not chained to the 23/7 mining fleet, etc). It became quite obvious that EVE really had become like a job that had been limiting my options, and I would probably not have realized this if I had not dropped everything like I did.

It actually didn't take many days before I started thinking about logging in again, but it was obvious that I needed to do things differently from now on. This is why my mining fleet will still be down for an undetermined time, as this is the most taxing service to keep running. I have also put corp applications for Astral Sanctuary on hold until I clear out my inbox and possibly get around to creating a better system for applications on this website. I currently aim to keep the refining service and the reward program going, as these are easier to run.

I will be prioritizing this website a lot more, to try to add all kinds of dynamic funtionality which can automate a lot of stuff that I have been doing manually up until now. So then it only remains to see when I will actually get this done, as I have had some problems getting back into programming for quite a while. Putting some things on hold will hopefully help push this along.
25 Mar 2014 I'm taking a break from EVE and everything on this website is on hold until further notice.
