Goal kinda technically met

This morning, instead of logging off I got convinced to drag my Myrm through low sec just after downtime by my newest corp mate to do a DED site with him. It was a 4/10. Frankly, I'm still fuzzy about what that means but its something about how hard it is and what may drop inside of it. I'll look it up later when I have more time.

Anyway, I got invited along and with my shield fit battle myrm of non-rawr power helped him work on the site. The site beat us up a bit. Finally, I got some armor repair drones and did the baby logi thing on my corp mate. Of course, he is a -10 so I got GCCed for repping him. Thanks CCP. I can't even rep a flashy red corp mate without getting GCC but I corp members in high sec can kill each other and not get flagged. So sensible.

We wound up with:

Gistum C-Type 10mn afterburner - Sells for 100 mil
Gistum C-Type Kinetic Deflection Amplifier - 10 mil
Gistum A-Type Invulnerability Field - Sells for about 950 mil
8th Tier Overseer's Personal Effects - 2mil

Once the items are sold, I'll have about 500 mil in my pocket.

I also whipped out my low sec Noctis, much to his amusement, and cleaned the field.

As we were playing local spiked up +1 with a cheetah landing and dropping core scanner probes. Because we were in a scannable site, we bailed and switched ships. Then he said hello in German in local so i whipped out google translate and started chatting with him.

He belongs to a high sec corp that does some low sec stuff and he was looking for places to mine. He also sucked at probes. However, he is only two months older then I am. Still, I chatted and he chatted and eventually I got him to offer me the bookmarks for the site that he found. It happened to be the site we were already doing but the goal was to see how stupid he would be.

Chatting with people is fine. However, when two low sec toons, with -sec status (-3 and -10) are encouraging you to go and do a site in the space they are currently active in, it may be a trap. He wound up docking and contracting me the bookmark. My flirt may be at level 5 but my siren call is still around a 3 it seems. With his location in place my corpie bounced over to that station and cloaked to try to snipe him.

However he undocked + cloaked too fast. Damn. It was an interesting little event however. I felt weird about it, but at the same time, I'd never trust people if I was in the situation he was and I'd have been friendly but done everything in my power to avoid them. He did a good job.

I've also been making a deal for an Oneiros. Since my friend builds stuff, lately, once he found out how many loyalty points I have hes been nabbing some stuff off me. He wanted a stabber fleet issue and he also offered to build and sell me an Oneiros. I asked for a price and in the end he decided on a second stabber fleet issue blueprint. That has me spending 40mil isk and 200k in loyalty points for an Oneiros. I'm cool with that. I guess if I was pinching loyalty points it could be better. I don't know, I'm cool with it.

Memoirs - Part One: Virtual Worlds

Virtual Realities: Memoirs of an internet spaceship politician by Sugar Kyle CSM9, CSMX
This is where it really started. The day I lost my mind.

I never told anyone how long I had been debating my run for the ninth CSM. The thought started to circle in the back of my thoughts in November. I was back home after a sucessful Eve Vegas. I had met a few people. My notes from the presentations and round tables had gone over very well. I felt useful, comfortable, and excited that I was a member of the community. I belonged and I cared about this thing that I belonged to. That thing was the community of Eve Online.
Eve Vegas of 2013 was when I found out that a conversation I had been fortunate enough to have with CCP Masterplan at Fanfest of that same year, had sparked enough interest to gain developer attention. At Eve Vegas I learned that they would be working on ideas based off of the premise that I had presented. Only days later, a developer posted to the Offical Eve Online forums about i…

Sugar’s Non-Technical Guide to Making Boosters

Welcome to my non-technical and outdated but probably still useful guide to boosters.  There have been changes to how things are built in Eve. This was the old POS code before the introduction of new structures in 2016.   This is just a walk through on my wobbling path of booster production.  It took me half a dozen different documents to figure out what I needed to do to make these mythical things.  It is what I do.  It may not be perfect but it works.

This is pirate focused industry.
This guide brought to you by Lain asking me to write it after I tried to explain it in chat.

Why make boosters? Because drugs are good.  Really they are performance enhancers and performance enhancers can give someone that extra edge in PvP.  It was also because my boys used them and when they ran low they often ran out, I could be their supplier.  They would no longer hoard their drugs due to the length of time it takes to get fresh product.. The thought of being a drug kingpin was also very appealing. …

Will the real player please stand up?

I installed Eve on my Surface the other day. I then remembered why my last laptop, when I was playing Eve, was an Alienware gaming laptop. My Surface, wonderful creature that it is, runs Eve at such a tiny magnification that I squint to see it. I could change my settings and adjust for this. Instead, I'll stick to my desktop and try to remember to log in and see the latest round of changes.

Yet, here I am writing.

Deep in the muzzy field of my brain that has been working almost daily for the last six weeks, random thoughts bubble up. I may not log in and spend my time focusing on Eve as a world, but it hasn't slipped from me. I've picked up an amazing group of friends that I talk to daily and many of them still play enough that I skim the social edges. At times I'm angry that the same social problems exist. At others, I'm fascinating by the process.

Today is a fascinating day because I've been answering e-mails. I still get e-mails occasionally from people who …
