Best memory of EVE: My first kill
As I was flying my brand new Punisher on EVE's second day, I decided a player had to feel some heat from my lasers. At that time, I had been working for weeks with my dearly beloved co-worker Hjortur (AKA Pong) to get the combat experience balanced. I told him I had found my prey, and he described his ship and the scenario; he was flying an Executioner and killing rats at a stargate in a 0.3 security system. He made an evil, low-sounding giggle but still felt kind of sorry for the soon to be killed newbie. I didn't, so I activated my lasers and watched the ship burn slowly.
Out of nowhere came the loudest, most painful scream, one no man should ever experience. It came from Hjortur. He was dead. Out of 5,000 players that were currently logged in, I had unknowingly made him the first victim for my lasers. Good times, good loot.

Best memory of EVE: Is that an egg in your pocket?
My favorite memory, after years of GM duty, was the one time I risked my job. A player sent in a request for a reward; he claimed to have espied the face of Albert Einstein in one of our nebulas, and was convinced that this was an Easter egg we'd planted. While he was completely sincere about this, he was also very chatty and clearly didn't take himself seriously at all, which was good, because we were very busy at the time, and the only reward I could find for him on short notice was a link to an informational page about psilocybin mushrooms.
