Don't Panic!

Daehan Minhyok:

The Hitchhikers' guide has ths to say about the capsuleer Daehan Minhyok:

In Fall of 09 his friend came back to school, and while they played Magic The Gathering together in the computer lab where they worked on computer club activities,  his friend would occasionally mention “this space ship game I (his friend) plays”.  Min, being cheap, always responded, “Yeah, I play a lot of computer games and occasionally enjoy a good RPG now and then, but I’d never pay a monthly fee for it”.  He had previously tried Guild Wars for a week or so, and just couldn’t get into it, and also tried WoW and made it about 2 hours before gaving up on it.  Then, one day, a different friend, who Min and his eve-playing friend were teaching MTG to, began an EVE trial, and was hooked.  At this point, around Thanksgiving, Min said, "alright, I’ll try a trial, hook me up".  This was after about 5 hours in the car with his eve playing friend  (we were getting servers off ebay that were pck-up only no shipping)  I began my trial on 12/08/09.

Before leaving the planet to become a capsuleer, Min spent several hours on the eve wiki page trying to figure out what he wanted to do in EVE, aside from avoiding Pan-galactic gargleblasters.  He thought Hey, I like tech and scifi, so I’ll join the Caldari Archura Stargazer , they start off with attribute points  aligned to science and research, horray!  Then I created my character..

He liked the uniform and the long hair, a lot of Min's new EVE friends would occasionally tease him about the prominence of his nose.

In a later post I will explain his in game name.  Min joined his EVEe-playing friend's corp right off, and after about a 15 minute un down of how to get around the windows and set skills, Min was on his own.  He quickly set about getting a mining frigate, a bantam, and  Mining Laser I.  He, (quickly in his own opinion), trained up to run an osprey with Mining Laser IIs and expanded cargoholds.  This was the beginning of his carebear high-sec life, though he did not know at the time what that meant.

At this point Min paid for his pilot's license abandoned planet side life, and joined the Nebulon Syndicate officially, for the first time.  He stuck with them until shortly after his1 year birthday when he went his separate way under less than optimal circumstances (Small incident occurred).  Min started his own corp, the Corps of Alchemy and Engineering, to do research in Caldari space, and after a couple months of logging in only to update skills and fuel his High-sec POS, which he lost, he went back to an alliance formed by a former Corp mate and schlepped back out to Minmatar space.  There he ran missions for a  lvl 4 q20 locator agent and earned his jump clone and made good isk and lp which he used for implants.

Finally this spring he began looking to move out of high-sec.  Min was going to move into a wormhole with some of his alliance mates.  Unfortunately the recent (ish) inclusion of Planetary Interactions made it financially possible for everyone and his alt to own their own wormhole, and  after a week and a half  of scanning 4-8 hours a day for an unclaimed C2 cor C3 Pulsar wormhole, or indeed any unclaimed wormhole, he and his friends gave up.  Usually Min doesn’t’ give up that easily, but hee realized Isotope prices were on the rise, and that ice mining in high-sec would bring in enough money to buy minerals and the materials needed to make ships and isk.  It was about this time, that one fateful night at 2am, after saying a lot of stupid things, to include, “you know that little voice that usually tells me not to say things like that? Yeah its pretty quiet right now”,  Min said to his alliance mates, “Hey lets  make a podcast!”.  Thus, the WTFWIT? (What The F#*K Was I Thinking?) Podcast was created.  One day, the 2 hour recording referred to as “The protocast” will be released, and we will receive more hatemail than CCP after that monocle thing, times about a billion.

Lastly, this summer, Min's old corp mates felt he warranted a second chance, and allowed him to come join them in 0.0.  The current CEO had already spent some time out there as a nullsec pvp/miner and was retiring back to a quiet life as a Nullsec Renter.  That pretty much takes  us up to where Min is now…

Min was a carebear in high-sec, now he's a carebear in 0.0 XD
