    Hey guys!

    If I recall correctly the last thing you heard from me was I had just gotten back from Jamaica. About a week later I took about a 3 month vacation. I really wanted to come here and say goodbye to everyone but the powers above prevented me from doing so. By the time I was free to do so, it was a little too late to say goodbye. Instead I thought I would wait and give you all an update when I had some good news.

    Last week I accepted an offer with CCP as a Community Representative for EVE Online. I’m currently getting settled in my new role and really loving it. With this position I’m working out of my home office and I don’t have a commute to worry about. This new gig is really in line with my career goals and is a perfect fit for me. Don’t get me wrong I miss you guys a lot and UO will always have a place in my heart.

    So long and thanks for all the fish!

    Chrissay

    Glad to see you have landed on your feet.

    Ironically, the headline of this week's Newsweek was something about how layoffs haven't paid off for the big corporations. Anyone marginally familiar with the literature could have told them that, though.

    So as EA rolls around in its own feces, feel free to laugh at them for laying you all off; from the news of late, they obviously haven't helped themselves that much by doing so.

    - What Stupid Miner said ^2

    So, are you going to go by Adida on EVE?
    (I have a few buddies that play it and I'll be sure to let them know they just acquired some great talent)

    Also, I've been jealous hearing of a few of your trips to Jamaica and I would like to continue to be jealous... where'd you jet off to this time? :)

    Good to hear from ya' ma'am.

    Congratulations Chrissay! Eve online is very fortunate to have you. Perhaps they will be just as lucky to have you for a neighbor in farm town! Keep doing what you do!!!!

    Best of luck,

    It's good to hear from you, Chrissay! It sounds like you are doing well. It doesn't get much better than being able to work from home, to my way of thinking. =) Congratulations on your new position. Keep us posted!

    Is this a different one than the one that did five on friday?
    If it was her she never seemed to know what she was talking about and could not answer simple questions. Often times this lead to more questions being asked than what was orginally presented. I.E. remember when she couldn't give an answer on the quiver of rages ect.

    I hope you actually play EVE because I felt like you didn't play UO and you weren't helpful when it came to answer questions about this game and/or it's mechanics.
