Yes I know. One of the staffers, killed in the attack, was a well known and beloved member of the EVE Online community. Very small world. I was going to burn a PLEX so I could log in with my main but the only PC I have capable of running the client crapped out again. Lot's of people paying their respects, unfortunately I can't participate.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton Pays Tribute to Slain Diplomat and EVE Online Gamer
In a memorial service today for four American diplomats assassinated in Libya earlier this week, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton paid tribute to Sean Smith, a consular officer for the United States who also served as a diplomat in EVE Online and as a member of that MMO's real-world governing body.
In her eulogy, Clinton directly referenced Smith's work in that video game's community.
Clinton, in a service attended by President Obama today at Andrews Air Force Base, said that Smith was survived by "a loving wife, Heather, two young children—Samantha and Nathan—and scores of grieving family, friends and colleagues.
"And that's just in this world," said Clinton, "because in the virtual worlds Sean helped create, he is also being mourned by countless competitors, collaborators and gamers, who shared his passion."Source
