While I love the redundant nature of RAID, I just wish I could make parity checks go a little bit quicker.
If you're using the fabulous bit of code from Flaming Keys to Fix NTFS Permissions via Powershell and you're having issues with the ACL and SetSecurityDescriptor, then you're probably running PowerShell 3.0.
At the moment the script doesn't support PS3 because of a change to the WMI, so your only alternate option is to run it on a Windows 7 machine with PowerShell 2.
You can in-fact run PowerShell 2 from within PowerShell 3 by using the following command:
powershell -version 2.0
Thanks to Joe Crowe for reminding me about this function.
Being unsure of quite what to do in EVE to generate ISK (the currency of choice in New Eden) I've been trying my hand at various career choices available to capsuleers, from running mission for NPC agents, to hauling loot/equipment & materials for players for a minor fee.
However, none of these things really generate much income and in an attempt to find a decent enough income stream that's not going to bore me to death like mining does, I've taken an interest in wormholes and scanning down various other astronomical anomalies to investigate for profit.
I've been reading up on what's involved in scanning down these anomalies and tonight, equipped with my fully fitted Tengu (A versatile cruiser I have built around scanning while cloaked) I thought I'd start putting the theory into practice.
It's hard to describe the feeling of fear and adrenaline as you cross the event horizon of a wormhole in EVE, you're literally jumping into the unknown and there could be a fleet of ships waiting on the other side to ruin your day. (And more importantly, steal your stuff while your corpse floats in the void of space.)
Thankfully, in my case, the wormhole was quiet, though not empty. I briefly scouted about inside it, unsure of what would happen, would I be descended on by a pack of rabid players, upset at my intrustion?
Thankfully not. I'm in no doubt that they knew I was there, if there's one thing that's certain about wormhole pilots, it's that they watch their scanners, because their life literally depends on it.
However, I was left alone, free to explore briefly before escaping.
The wormhole was lit by a blue star, giving it a cold and harsh aura, but it was also worth capturing, even if only because it was my first foray into W-space.
Thankfully, I made it out alive, I simply turned and made my run for the exit after my brief exploration, I will return though and next time I'll be better prepared, I might even attempt to use the element of surprise to ruin someone's day.
I've been playing EVE on and off for a few years now, but I finally feel like I've found a decent corp to fly with and I'm now settling in nicely, I think it might be time to start exploring as a career in the game, so I thought I might as well inject some life back into the blog by keeping a record of my exploits here!

So, it seems Blizzard have been sharing our data without our full consent since 2007! Crikey.
While I'm not too fussed about this, I'm sure some people will no doubt get their underwear all in a bunch.
