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.

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…

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…
