Well, after the Devblog on the Summer Challenges a lot of CCP staff were enthusiastic to get to work and tackle any and all issues, after all, they have such wonderful, sweet and adoring customers. On top of that, the Hamsters that run the EVE server cluster are pretty awesome too.

But in order to work hard, you have to eat well. So people did just that.

But they had this one trainee, who saw a book title at CCP’s office, and got things a little mixed up.

So, this happened …
