Am I scary?

I don't think I am scary. I reached month 5 on the 1st. I think for month 6 I'm going to do a long (or series) of comparison then and now posts.

This morning I found a drake doing a radar site I scanned down. I was sleepy and up in the air if I could take him. As a PvE drake he was probably tanked all to hell. Also, he had a scanning alt in system who I could not pin down and it was just me on. So, I decided not to take it. Would have been a good fight but I'da had to slip my alt in and get a good land on him.

So I said something in local. With my cloaked alt I watched him jet out of the site in a heartbeat. That made me laugh. The thought that anyone is intimidated of me is just mind boggling. I told him to go back to his site and I went to the next system to scan.

I found jack shit before I decided to go to bed.

I'm still debating this. He was an older toon with a 5.0 sec status and a 6 man corp named after the scanning guy in system. What brought him to our chunk of low, I'm not sure. He was Russian and we do see a lot of Russian players in the USA am time.

I've plugged in Battle Cruiser 4 and I will do 5 next. Chella is running logi 5 right now. 22 days left on that. My scanning toon is also about to plug in caldari cruiser 5. At the end of the month I should wind up with a rocking hurricane, kick ass logi, and a cloaky/scanning/site running tengu.

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…

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…

TCS: Sugar's Non-Technical Guide to Her Low Sec Market

Gevlon shocked me by featuring my store in his blog, yesterday. My entire project has been something I mostly scraped together and have bumbled through to the best of my ability and sense. Early on, I started a naming dynamic to my posts so that people could avoid the blogs about the store. These blogs are titled TCS. Also, if you search for TCS those particular blogs are available.

I decided to create a more cohesive naming strategy because someone said, “I don’t know how interested your readers will be in your market posts.” I didn’t either. I wasn't going to not write them because I write about whatever interests me. It seemed that a naming convention would correct the situation. However, I’ve started to receive a trickle of eve-mail and e-mail about what I am doing. Sometimes people ask me for advice on how to approach their own low sec market or what they should pick and choose or just how to pick and choose.

Cheradenine Harper asked me about moving forward into the wider mark…
