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.

The Charm of the Familar

With a few picked up a shifts at work due to the holidays. I pondered logging in but I didn't have the energy to do so. Being able to say no to logging in is pleasant. Just as my youngest puppy interrupts me every fifteen minutes to pee, going to sleep instead of staying up is also pleasant. I had a lot of short slept nights when I was active in a corporation.

My next plan has been to learn how to scan again. The new map is in and I need to refresh my scanning skills. My hold is full of probes. My ship appears to be reasonably set up. I remembered how to hit my F key to cloak. In fact, I hit it a bit to fast. I need to get the ebb and flow of the tic back down.

I am also rusty in my paranoia. I idly switch to another window to research breadbowls and the soup I want to make later. Then I remember I am sitting, decloaked, off of a gate somewhere. Whoops. I did figure out a breadbowl recipe and soup as well.

The question was where do I relearn to scan? I need somewhere off the beate…

CSMX - Post #20

Summer is here and CCP is very much out of the office. Sion made a good point in wondering why everyone leaves Iceland when it has its best weather. What it means is that all is mostly quiet on the dev blog front. There are some things happening but the dev blogs and news announcements have not yet happened. The skill points were delivered on Tuesday so yay for unallocated skill points.

Over in CSM chat, there has been a lot of back and forth about sov and measuring the impact and success of things so far. I can say that CCP and the CSM are watching it. The pros and cons are coming in pretty hot and heavy. Some are being looked at now. Some have to see how things are going and if and how the direction needs to be tweaked.

In my corner, I'm starting to gather things together. The summit is in seven or so weeks. In between then and now I need to gather up my question list and write down a few topics of discussion. I'm starting now because I have personal vacation at the end of A…

My Skill Queue went empty

The thing I miss most is having mail. When I log in I often check that line to see if I have mail. Unfortunately, I do not. I am not surprised. There is no reason for me to have mail. Yet, I do miss it.
In some ways having regular eve-mail was the moment that I was most connected. I had people to talk with and engage in. It was the closest I've ever been to having a normal social level that I was comfortable with. This shows you how introverted I am that eve-mail filled up my social meter. 
I log in and look around. Normally, I am looking for the people that I do not have other social contacts with. It is very, very easy to lose those relationships. The binding glue of the game has dissolved and friendship, as an adult, can take work. Even in this information time. Eve gave me things to talk about. Without it, I remember that I don't talk very much. Unless it is about dogs and driving my co-workers crazy when people come to me for advice they won't follow.
Since I logged …
