It's a new year for the New Order. 2014 is going to be quite a year, if the first several minutes of it are any indication. The clock had barely struck midnight EVEtime when I received this amazing EVEmail from Bao Xi:
The man didn't lie: Bao Xi purchased 7,500 additional shares in the New Order. In doing so, he sent us over the 178, 179, 180, 181, 182, 183, 184, and 185 billion isk milestones and earned a rare honour: an Octuple Supreme Protector's Tip of the Hat™. He is now the second-largest shareholder in the Order.
It's funny to think about the different ways people spend or use their money. Some use it to buy luxuries or for personal glory; others hoard it because it makes them feel good just to have it. On the other hand, we in the New Order have a more peculiar use for our money. We use it to build a better world. Strange concept, no? It seems to be working for us so far. Happy New Year.
