I logged in with an evemail on each account. I was a bit puzzled. While wildly popular, I do not often get Evemail, much to my sadness.

One of the other pirate corps wardeced us. We fly with them and we shoot at them and they at us all of the time. It seems that the relationship has always been a level thing. So, when the war dec came in I wondered what had happened.

It seems that they are unhappy that when they pewpew with us they have to deal with gate/station guns since they are all flashy red. We stay yellow because being flashy red is inconvenient. Therefor, the wardec is to level the playing field, per them.

I was going to comment how we are not technically 'pirates' or 'outlaws' because we stay above flashy red. However, this kind of defines it for me. We're a low sec PvP corp. We are called pirates.

Hmmm. At first I had a rush of 'oh shit'. Then I realized I didn't care. I'm cautious of them anyway and never hang around them. A day ago, they asked us to come probe out the carrier that I didn't get on the kill mail for. I dunno, it makes me roll my eyes. I was worried for my high sec shenanigans but then I realized that they don't do high sec.

I'm not dropping corp and running. Low sec is still just as dangerous as it was before. I didn't trust the group then and I am glad that I didn't get warm, fuzzy feelings for them as I have another corp we run with. This corp even says that they are not blue to anyone or anyone blue to them.

This is why I am here. Sure, there is the newbie thrill of it all. At first I had a 'should I stay in station and play my alts?' moment. Then I realized that no, nothing has changed. The funny part is that I go out of town for 10 days next week. I will still play, but my login will be from England. They may or may not get tired of it. It is their isk to spend. I am sure that there will be others in the future.

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Welcome to my non-technical and outdated but probably still useful guide to boosters.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