Oh CCP, Why are you making my computer suffer?

The launch of CCP's new launcher is just becoming a pain in the ass. Today, my lovely gaming machine that normally eats processor hogs for breakfast started vomiting all over the eve client. I had to drop my graphics settings on one client to free up processor room. It seems to be a familiar problem. I know they need to tweak the launcher more but it is damn annoying all the same.

Beyond that, I am back home and happy about it. I'm exhausted since my time is in the wrong zone but that just means its a perfect time to wander around and do silly things. I tried some pewpew but the guy docked to fast. I've mostly been salvaging and making isk.

Having finally gotten my standings over a 7 I pulled my first level 5 mission ever. Yay me. We will do it later today I think.

Right now I'm jsut readjusting myself, dealing with jetlag and selling teh salvage from my level 5 missions as well as the backlog from my level 3's. In the background in Rens, some guy is trying to convince people to invest in his Investment corp. People are cheerfully trolling him. I am sure enough people will actually listen and give it a try. Banks succeed in Eve because people are greedy, optimistic, and ignorant. I think I will follow this group, named The Guild of Collegious Investors to see if they succeed or become yet another Eve scam story. Either will be amusing.

  1. The rado replica behind this tactic is that the much higher mark up on precious metal cases help cover the very high costs of both the replica watches and the manufacturing of said new movements or features. Time and again we see brands painstakingly develop complicated movements or other features which they will only make available in precious metal cased replica watches sale even if other models of the same brand do come in steel. Go so far as to say the source of the issue is in the pigments used to color it as pigments don take the heat required to produce ceramic quite well and often form faulty areas in the surface. One of the most versatile, elegant and sporty rolex replica sale to one of the most boring and sedative timekeepers. The Daytona provides one unquestionably iconic aesthetic and beholding a piece of that can feel both rewarding and infirmative. Here my issue with fake rolex sale most iconic designs that you see gazillions around you are only appreciated by die hard fans and enthusiasts if said designs have fascinating details and numerous variables.

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 …
