    Default Useful Guides and Resources for PCGE New Members and Vets

    Hi all,
    there is lots of great information and guides given in our Eve forum and the web out there, we share all the time. I suggest, we collect the best bits as a link collection in this thread for new members as starter resources and as refresher for us vets ourselves . Please, can I ask you to post the keyword, one sentence description and corresponding forum or web link in this thread .. so I can collect them in an organised way in the top level post. This will save us a lot of time to point new corp members to useful resources and should be a overal very helpful resource for all of us.

    Thanks in advance for your support, Sam

    You do realise that this guide was last updated in May 2009 don't you?

    With the recent and forthcoming changes to mining barges and exhumers the guide is becoming increasingly out of date.

    But still a good read for anyone who wants to get into the stats behind mining.
