My wallet is on fire

I spent isk today as if I suddenly hated it. My eyes are still boggling a bit since I just dropped around 300mil.

Soon, that won't even cover the ships I want to fly. For now, I think it is the most expensive buying spree I have yet had. I remember the day I got a Domi and a Noctis almost back to back and spent like 90 mil. Soon I will be posting billion purchases, I can feel it coming.

My wallet screams.

I'm down 500mil from that loan but I try not to think of it.

I wound up with 3 fully fit hurricanes. I contracted them to my corps jump freighter toon. I also had to buy a new set of sisters probes and launcher because I lost yet another covops frig today. Turns out the rats that spawned scramed her. She was fucked and could not warp out. However, I salvaged a piece of T2 salvage off the frig that covered the cost of the frig. I consider that a win in the end.

However, for the two I have lost (had a spare in the station) I've earned over a bil. So I can't actually complain. However I will anyway.

I've been reading a lot of threads on the Eve Online forums. Its great mealtime entertainment while I am chatting. These are not always productive but the 'theme of Eve' comes up a lot in the arguments for the PvP vs No-PvP crowd. One thing is about the entire loss concept of Eve.

The reason I complain about spending isk is that the isk I spent to create and fit those hurricanes is gone. I know that those hurricanes will be blown up. Probably, in rapid succession. Once they are gone they are gone. I will be tossed into space in my pod and I will attempt to escape before my pod is also destroyed. The goal is to have fun in them in the meantime. However, a lot of games don't have loss like that.

I also decided to help someone. Being the random person I am in there is a random corp chat room I hang out in. They have aquired a new member who is a nice guy and I encouraged him to apply to them. Well, they got him a set of +2 implants the other day. I felt they could have dropped more isk so I got him a +3 set and then gave him a +2 set to sell.

Just had a 'nice' day.

Plus, I'd been working and working and building isk and building isk.

The Eve work place.

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Welcome to my non-technical and outdated but probably still useful guide to boosters.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