it's worth noting that it went on for about 5 hours, but that is at 10% speed so in reality it was much less than that.

Still crazy though, especially the real world cash stuff.

Talk about a heck of a day.

I don't even play EVE (or dust514) but I love reading stories about it. Always seems so epic.

Hell yeah reading the major ongoings EVE OR DUST 514 is pretty interesting because these guys are hardcore passionate about this stuff.
