Pew Pew? Ouch

I've been collecting drone minerals for someone of late. The super low sec Noctis makes a tedious task productive all of a sudden.

I've also started working on scanning. We'll see how that goes.

Beyond, life has been uninterested for the past few days, mostly because I have been at work. However, this evening while I was wandering around the belts looking for a decently sized belt rats to shoot at, one of my corpies dropped in on me and whooped my ass.

I had a vague feeling he was about to do it so surprised, I was not. Since I was in a frigate he was gentle. He just drained my cap and left me floundering, unable to flee, and beat the fuck out of my shields. You have to be careful, playing with frigates, they pop easily. He was also in a Sleipnir.

I ran off as soon as he let me go and licked my wounds. At that point some random ass dude hopped in system in a Punisher and started to look for me. I realized that I wasn't fit for a PvP fight. I needed to upgrade a few mods to their Tech 2 versions and I didn't have a point, just a web.

I'm still rather frettish about fighting on my own.

However, there was great disappointment, I was told, in my not having a point on the Jag. I had a web on it as I was told to do since it is a PvE ship and I use it to Rat. However, unable to bear the disappointment, I went and changed out my web for a scram. Immediately I couldn't fit anything else so I restructured and took off the rocket launcher. It wasn't useful anyway. I have no missile skills and it hit for about 19 damage.

So now my Jag, while still delicate, is a bit more PvP fit as it should be.

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…

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…

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…
