As I said yesterday, I was going to give a certain MMO a go. So, last night I began downloading the demo of EVE Online via Steam and this morning I was still downloading it. Over 8 gigs of data was trying to be squeezed through my crud connection.
And it would have finished downloading the demo last night if it hadn’t been for one minor detail. One very minor detail… At some point between getting home from The Avenegers/Avengers Assemble last night and going to bed… the power supply to my laptop was turned off at the socket.
Of course when I woke up this morning, I thought something terrible had happened to my laptop, what with the blank, unresponsive screen and all. Thankfully, it didn’t take me long to realise that power had been disconnected.
There wasn’t too much left, about three hours worth of data, when I left for work this morning. Hopefully I can start playing the demo tonight.
