ROFL - I'm an absent minded idiot

There is a wormhole in our system for the last few days that leads to deep nullsec. It is irritating as hell because we have a flood of random people moving in and out of the system. Occasionally, they try to play with us but so far it has been unimpressive.

I undocked in my Jag to find another Jag 8k off of me. "Oh?" I thought. My corp mate had been trying to catch a Tengu from someone from the same corp. As soon as I undocked he started burning away. I let him burn, let him burn, my corpmate undocks in an Enyo and when he reaches 150km away I hit warp to an insta undock I have 160k off station and land behind him.

He freaked out and I learned that he had a MWD on his Jagar as my corpie landed on his other side and we tried to pincer him. Sadly, it did not work but it was very cool move on my part I thought. He then warped to the sun. Assuming he didn't want gateguns we went after him. Only he was gone. We warped back to station and he was about 200k off the station. We played around with him for about 20 minutes. Then another corpie entered system and landed in a hurricane. He decided to stop playing with us and left.

Blah. Whatever. We had a 5/10 plex that had just spawned in the system so we went to that instead. What started out as maybe one person doing it became a somewhat rediculious fleet for the mission at hand.

It is amazing what people will do right after downtime.

I do love the silliness. I did think the NPC fleet looked pretty badass.

Anyway, after doing the plex, I was GCC for repping my -10 corp mate. Again, we are doing an NPC site but I get GCC for repping a person that I am in the same corporation with and we are in low sec. Brilliant mechanic there. Anyway, I was salving with my other account and undocked in a frig and promply got blown up. I didn't realize why, undocked again in another POS ship and got popped again. The second time I looked at my screen and away from salvaging and realized that I had GCC.

Whoops.

Will the real player please stand up?

I installed Eve on my Surface the other day. I then remembered why my last laptop, when I was playing Eve, was an Alienware gaming laptop. My Surface, wonderful creature that it is, runs Eve at such a tiny magnification that I squint to see it. I could change my settings and adjust for this. Instead, I'll stick to my desktop and try to remember to log in and see the latest round of changes.

Yet, here I am writing.

Deep in the muzzy field of my brain that has been working almost daily for the last six weeks, random thoughts bubble up. I may not log in and spend my time focusing on Eve as a world, but it hasn't slipped from me. I've picked up an amazing group of friends that I talk to daily and many of them still play enough that I skim the social edges. At times I'm angry that the same social problems exist. At others, I'm fascinating by the process.

Today is a fascinating day because I've been answering e-mails. I still get e-mails occasionally from people who …

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…
