Google Translate, Thank you

I've said it, everyone says it, the website says it, but Eve is a single server with a global community. I don't think people realize how fucking cool that it is how useful Google translate can be. I can have a conversation with someone from Russia because of Google translate. It is not perfect but both sides appreciate the effort that the other takes to communicate with them.

It's amazing in my opinion.

Anyways...

I really need to improve my PvE abilities. I'm not sure how I plan to go about that but I need to do something. It would make the entire isk making process faster and allow me to hoard my complexes to myself.

I've been eyeing the big stack of PI loot from the POS that went down the other day. Its about 50mil in stuff. What I've decided to do it just load it up and drag it to high sec with me when I do sale runs. I wound up doing one such run tonight because while I am calmer about sitting on ISK I am not super calm about it.

I'm not able to do stuff like make sell orders instead of sell to buy orders and leave things alone if the price is reasonable and not over tweak. However, gaining that ability has been hard. I want the isk now not in 3 days when it sells.

But, it pays off. My 500mil loan was also repaid today. I then purchased another oneiros. This way I have a spare just in case. My ships are slowly building up... kinda.

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…

My Skill Queue went empty

The thing I miss most is having mail. When I log in I often check that line to see if I have mail. Unfortunately, I do not. I am not surprised. There is no reason for me to have mail. Yet, I do miss it.
In some ways having regular eve-mail was the moment that I was most connected. I had people to talk with and engage in. It was the closest I've ever been to having a normal social level that I was comfortable with. This shows you how introverted I am that eve-mail filled up my social meter. 
I log in and look around. Normally, I am looking for the people that I do not have other social contacts with. It is very, very easy to lose those relationships. The binding glue of the game has dissolved and friendship, as an adult, can take work. Even in this information time. Eve gave me things to talk about. Without it, I remember that I don't talk very much. Unless it is about dogs and driving my co-workers crazy when people come to me for advice they won't follow.
Since I logged …
