Operation Magic School Bus

(Usagi Kage) #41

I was fortunate to be in the right place at the right time to encounter The Magic School Bus. Thank you so much for the starter gifts. I am definitely going to contribute and help pay it forward!

Magic School Bus rocks!

(Titania YGotharia) #43

Thanx for the Ship

(Zamora Solette) #44

Thanks a ton Mike. Fully fit and newbie flyable destroyer.

wow, letting that sink in. I started Operation Magic School Bus after a good episode of Podside (an eve podcast I miss dearly) and asked for a few donations. Three years later I have NO IDEA of how many people have gotten ships, how many laps of the career systems I have done.

But the occasional person waves as I fly by and tells me if they still have theirs or lost it. What makes me smile is not the status update of the ship but the fact that they, the pilot, are still here, still playing.

As am I, the Bus keeps going, making the rounds.

3 freaking years

The hard part was losing the bpc’s I carry for people older than 30 days.

But the Bus will endure


(Wanda Fayne) #48

Damn, ganking the bus is pretty low .:expressionless:
At least it looks like mostly copies.

(Mike Azariah) #49

Yeah, the implants were for rookies who were polite and really engaged beyond ‘gimme’ oh and the vindi print was a xmas gift to me, I just feel bad that I did not take care of it better


(Boldly Gone) #50

Looks like they’ve burnt down a library…

Many hours just to produce those copies, I presume. That’s why I avoid Jita and its vicinity if possible, too many weirdos there who don’t care what they shoot at.
Carry on, there’s so many newbros starting each day!

(yellow parasol) #51

Hey Mike, if there was an EVE christmas present you wanted, what would it be?

(Mike Azariah) #52

I thought about this more than I should have. What I want is the next shiny ship, it is what I always like. Right now it is a toss up between the waffle iron and the dyson vacuum. (aka Barghest and Nestor)


(Charlotte Robathison) #53

Thanks Mike. You’ve made pirate hunting significantly easier for this newbie. x

(Keno Skir) #54

Watch your contracts in the run up to Christmas you big giver you. :dealwithitparrot:

(Drago Shouna) #55

I can replace some of those BPC’s. Check your contracts later.

(Mike Azariah) #56

Thank you Drago, that will go a long way to helping out some folks.


(Drago Shouna) #57

You’re more than welcome, you do a great job. I’ll get more copying.

(Tennat Nardieu) #58

just a small donation made tonight towards this good cause. keep it up


(Keno Skir) #59

Enjoy your new Nestor :parrotmustache:

It’s half of a pair I was using to test the NPC mining fleets so I hope it does as well with you.

(Mike Azariah) #60

so I know, how did it do against those belt clearin boffins?
