3 years and more

August 18th, 2011

<sing>Happy birthday to me</sing> Well … life is taking it’s toll. My little son and all the related changes that are coming with the new responsibilities are shifting my priorities. It’s a good thing and something I won’t regret but I totally forgot to write something about DOTLAN EveMaps third birthday on the 22 july.

A lot of things happend in the past year. The biggest and best change was the server upgrade in april to ensure evemaps will run smooth for the next couple years. I can add the deployment of EveMaps version 3, a major rewrite and the ability to customize a couple things on the page, enhanced radar tracking and some usability enhancements to that long list.

GamesCom 2011 in cologne

This will be a sad year for all the eveonline fanboys that’re hunting to gifts and bags on the GamesCom in cologne. Sadly CCP decided to not have a booth in the public area, they were only present on the Developer Conference. At least a couple Devs are running around and doing stuff behind the curtain somewhere (probably with Dust …).

If you’re interested in some eve related talkings you can join the player meeting in the brewery Heller’s Brauhaus in cologne. We  got  some Dev joining us this time with CCP Guard and CCP Daishi. See you on saturday for a few Kölsch. For more details check the announcements below.


After long internal conflicts and moral questions in my mind I finally added some GoogleAds on the page. I hope I placed them well (skyscraper on the right) so you won’t get disturbed while using the page. Adblock, IGB, Tablet users and the SSL pages are currently excluded from this. You can now start throw stones at me.

    I’ve been wondering for a while how you’ve avoided serving ads with the maps. Donations never seem to scale proportionately to the popularity of a free service. Have you thought about publicizing the monthly costs to run the site and the running total of donations received each month? Maybe I’ve never seen that because it’s a lot of work, or maybe there’s some social taboo or security risk I’m too dumb to notice.

    In any case, if the ads keep the maps running, bring on the ads and thank you.
