Anyway, while I immediately recognised the intrinsic awesomeness of this gift, I underestimated the hood. I mean, hoods are theatrical and all, but hardly a comfort thing.
How wrong I was.
Putting the hood up makes my head and ears feel just that little bit warmer, almost cosy, in fact, and by cutting off my peripheral vision slightly the hood focuses me entirely on my monitor/keyboard. So yeah, I now play EVE in a Jedi
As I was testing out my new Crow, it suddenly occurred to me: I now bear an uncanny resemblance to my avatar.
