Cruiser Roam - Fail

I guess I am risk adverse and lacking the proper mindset for PvP.

I still don't understand how 4 T1 cruisers and a rifter are going to come out positively with 2 talos and 2 hurricanes. Then, a falcon decloaks and everyone just explodes in a nice, bright light.

I don't consider possibly killing a ship that is bigger then I am but ultimately everyone dying in fleet a good fight or fun. Gods knows ships are going to explode. I have zero problems with throwing myself into the fray for the greater good of the fleet and battle. Sometimes shit just isn't going to work out and bad things will happen. I don't understand what the point is of taking a battle that you know is bad from the very start. I really, really am not getting it. I'm trying to do things that others swear to me is fun. It's not anymore fun to do then it was conceptually.

I also don't like null sec. I have not yet found anything about it that makes it worth going into over empire space.

I don't think I should win everything. I don't understand jumping into something that you can not emerge from in the vague chance that maybe something magical will happen. I guess that makes me risk adverse and not fun. Perhaps, I don't have the proper mindset for PvP. When everything about a situation says 'don't go' and you ignore that all to go, I guess you shouldn't be surprised.

The sad part is I fell to peer pressure to go and do something I didn't want to and didn't have the comfort level to do. But I always think I must be missing something since other people want to do it.

I guess what I'm considering to be fun in the game is to miserable and boring. Its one of those moments when you wonder if paths are dividing again.

I do like the game however. I guess I'm just going to have to change who I hang out with. Such is the life of a social game.

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Welcome to my non-technical and outdated but probably still useful guide to boosters.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