Fucked up update, A little bit of missions, a little bit of isk

When I tried to log into my blog, Blogger decided I wanted it in German because I am in Europe. Nice of it. My German is a bit rusty, I will admit. Also, I wonder why I get so many hits from Russia. It's fascinating me.

I've been working on my Republic Fleet standing to get it to a 7 so that I can pull level 5 missions. Well, I can't say I've been working on it because I haven't done a thing to help it in about two weeks. Curled up in my hotel room, exhausted from my lack of sleep and lovely English head cold, I decided to work on that some. My 2 myrms and my Oneiros had been delivered a few days ago by my builder buddy.

I forgot how much it costs to fit a ship. It took me two days to find enough of the type of gun that I wanted at a correct price. Someone had a stack for sale at a trade hub for 4.5mil. The guns are only about 200k a pop.

As I was typing this the daily shutdown happened. When I attempted to run the 'new eve launcher' and start up it said it had an update. Fine. I ran the update and now my launcher and game have been stuck into a circle where the game insists it needs the update and the launcher says the game is ready. I've been working at it for half an hour now.

Currently, per the forums, I am running the repair tool. However, that failed and my client still insisted that it needed to be updated. I ran the uninstall and then it froze and failed and left the launcher. I manually deleted the launcher and reran the download and it said that it errored and sent me to a page to manually download the client. I am currently doing that and will see in a few minutes if I can get the client back up.

I'm normally not one to stomp my feet and scream but this type of thing is rather irritating. I am fortunate that the hotel has such a fast connection. At the moment it is installing in the background...

Back to my Myrm. I took my PvE myrm down to lowsec a few weeks ago and left it there. My goal was to build another one in high sec. This way, when the scanning skills I have working finished, I could use it to help myself run plexs down in low sec.

However, my builder buddy has been bugging me to mission with him. He hates solo missioning as much as I do. So, I finally dragged myself up to high sec and refit my myrm. I forget, that half the cost of a ship is its fit sometimes. My wallet, which has not been going up started to go down much faster then I wanted. I spread out a bit to find the guns. However, I went back to my base and remembered that what I needed was rigs.
Another 7 mil and my ship was rigged. I then almost undocked to go to my mission agent when I remembered drones. T2 drones. Drones that average 500k a done and I needed 15 of them.
(The complete reinstall worked BTW. Yay Eve.)

I did about 5 or 6 level 3 missions. I managed to loose 2 drones during that time and that wiped out my profits from the missions themselves. Sigh. Once again, I really don't understand what is so great about these things. I'm doing them for the standings because they are largest with the security missions.
I still do not enjoy this, even with the company I get from my shipbuilding friend.

Weird, how one can play a game and do something they dislike so much but do it voluntarily. Eve is such an evil place.

It was a random question that I knew the answer of. I have 'Sugar' as a keyword so it highlights green and catches my attention. This made me chuckle. Maybe I'll have to go and see what it is like to shoot a ship one day? I could not help but smile. Basi suggested that I put my Titan killmail in my bio and assert my badassery. I figure, naw. It was a roll of the dice that landed me that kill mail. It doesn't define me as a person. Bios are interesting. The idea of a biography is a way to personalize your account. You can learn a lot about a person by what they choose to put in their bio

And back again

My very slow wormhole adventure continues almost as slowly as I am terminating my island in Animal Crossing.  My class 3 wormhole was not where I wanted to be. I was looking for a class 1 or 2 wormhole. I dropped my probes and with much less confusion scanned another wormhole. I remembered to dscan and collect my probes as I warped to the wormhole. I even remembered to drop a bookmark, wormholes being such good bookmark locations later. My wormhole told me it was a route into low sec. I tilted my head. How circular do our adventures go. Today might be the day to die and that too is okay. That mantra dances in the back of my head these days. Even if someone mocks me, what does that matter? Fattening someone's killboard is their issue not mine. So I jumped through and found myself in Efa in Khanid, tucked on the edge of high sec and null sec. What an interesting little system.  Several connections to high sec. A connection to null sec. This must be quite the traffic system.    I am f

What are all of these buttons for?

My snooty villager, Naomi, wants to move out. I picked her because she is a blue cow with some wild makeup but we have not really bonded like I have with Savannah and Mitzi... oh wait yeah wrong game. So, my clan is almost finished the second step of the Manhunt in Division 2. We just have one more zone to clear and then we can hunt down the secondary target to reveal the next... err wait, waaaaaiittt... Sorry about that. Resetting things. What do I want to do? That has been my problem for a while now. If I play Eve, what do I want to do in Eve? While I did PvP it was never my draw. The old PvE sucks. The new PvE may be okay but do I want to do it? Who am I? What am I? And do I need to be unique and interesting? I think that I may want to look in small wormholes and try a exciting, fragile life. With some of the ships that are available I can, perhaps, have an interesting life where I may or may not fall prey to someone but it does not have to define what
