Errand Girl

I got offered an errend to pick up faction loot tonight.

My CEO, a firm beliver in le lazy and da slacker mode of lifestyle was not in the mood to renew the contracts on stuff that wans't selling. He decided to drop it all in the corp hanger and asked me if I'd go and nab them.

For some reason I like hauling. Its oddly productive. Really, its the same reason I like mining. So, I jumped to it.

The two runs ment a trip to Jita and a trip to Rens. Also, along the way he decided he wanted some Medium Trimark Armor Pump II.

On the way to Jita I was side tracked to help chase down a small gang. We chased them through three systems and around the third for about twenty minutes. They were a Hawk, Hurricane, Rupture, and Drake. They *ran* from us. A Drake and a Rupture. Now, truth was we had a Machariel to drop on them on the other side of the gate depending on how they engaged. However, we couldn't get them to engage on a Drake and a Rupture. It was very sad.

After screwing around with that, they left system. We bailed and I continued my run to Jita. In Jita I went to pick up the rigs (the Trimark armor pumps) and discovered that they cost 67mil each. It made my eyes cross. Spending isk does that. Earlier, someone asked me why I was hoarding isk. I said it is simply because I want to be filthy space rich. One of my corpies reminded me that if I fell into a pond I'd drown under the weight of my current wallet.

400mil later, I was headed out of Jita and back to my high sec base. I decided to decrease my risk by unloading there before I went to Rens for the second half of the load. At Rens I accepted the second contract and headed back to consolidate and head to low sec.

Monday night is a good night for this type of thing. This is how I wandered into low sec.

Somewhat blinded by the glimmering and sparkle emitting from my cargo hold, I managed to make it to the corp base and unload everything. My CEO loves me enough to reimburse me for the trimarks before I even handed them over. I am glad I did turn into de explosion on the way to drop them off.

  1. Holy shit officer stuff.

  2. Hoarding money is probably more productive then my method of buying whatever strikes my fancy that day and then just letting it collect dust later in a forgotten hangar.

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…

TCS: Sugar's Non-Technical Guide to Her Low Sec Market

Gevlon shocked me by featuring my store in his blog, yesterday. My entire project has been something I mostly scraped together and have bumbled through to the best of my ability and sense. Early on, I started a naming dynamic to my posts so that people could avoid the blogs about the store. These blogs are titled TCS. Also, if you search for TCS those particular blogs are available.

I decided to create a more cohesive naming strategy because someone said, “I don’t know how interested your readers will be in your market posts.” I didn’t either. I wasn't going to not write them because I write about whatever interests me. It seemed that a naming convention would correct the situation. However, I’ve started to receive a trickle of eve-mail and e-mail about what I am doing. Sometimes people ask me for advice on how to approach their own low sec market or what they should pick and choose or just how to pick and choose.

Cheradenine Harper asked me about moving forward into the wider mark…
