CSM Voting

It turns out that my hotel internet is great which means I can play Eve. After all, why else would someone go to another country? Besides the amazing food. However, I feel like babbling as I gorge.

Anyway, I did some CSM Voting on my accounts. I'm up in the air about the entire purpose of the CSM. It seems to be a fueled power trip of egos for the most part. I'm leery of how much CCP actually cares. I'm amused that we have a political system in the game.

Anyway, I don't actually like any of the candidates. I expected that. My game perceptions are based off of me being new and my living in low sec. The major players are carebears or nullsec sov types. Low Sec is again, the games gutter that no one wants us to be in.

I've read a lot of the CSM ranting aka debates and reasons on the forums while I was at work over the last few weeks. I have not developed a like for many. The opinions are so, incredibly self centered and beyond the scope of global game play that it makes me gag. Maybe I've spent to much time as a public servant and in the position of a goal that may not be a personal one of mine but is a general good type of thing.

Anyway, I decided to pick someone who would conflict with the Mittens. Not because they were my fav choice but because they had the balls to have played the game from the start and go against someone who had as different a game play style as they possibly could.

I don't know if my decision was informed or not. I'm okay with that. I dislike politics but I'm not one to decide that pretending ignorance is a valid, informed choice.

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Welcome to my non-technical and outdated but probably still useful guide to boosters.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. …

CSM: Running for Office: Week Six

Nine days untill  the polls open.

It is amazing how much effort can go into crafting thirteen hundred characters. When I first looked at my CSM application I thought that it would be easy to write the official words. Of course it was not. The limit was the largest hurdle. I had so much to say and so few words to say it in. But, I eventually worked through it and submitted everything last Sunday evening. I sent off my passport at the same time and now it is just a short, but long wait.

Tomorrow is the final day of application submissions. Then, on the 3rd, we should find out who actually submitted their applications and passports and passed their background checks. The polls open the following Tuesday. I’ve checked my submission a few times. If I try to fill out the form with Sugar again it tells me that she has already submitted one. I sent my e-mail to the correct place. How I wish for a confirmation email to stare at. For now, i just fret. When I started the run I was worried about …

Busy, busy, busy

I find that it is still easy to write about Eve. However, I've not been playing Eve. I spent most of the last few weeks finishing up my crochet project. It was a birthday present for my best friend. Since someone expressed interest in it, here it is.

It is displayed on a king size bed. I made it as a birthday present for my best friend. We've had twenty years of friendship. I met her online when I was a teenager. Our birthdays are two weeks apart so I celebrated mine by making her something. I'm not one to celebrate birthdays but now and then I try to pull myself to a social norm and do something special for the people I love.

I spent a long time fighting to be myself. I finally discovered a balance in this last handful of years. It is still a struggle but for some reason, in my late thirties, understanding is moving briskly along. With that understanding comes comfort. I don't have to fight about and for things like I used to. I don't have to make anyone accept me…
