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.

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Welcome to my non-technical and outdated but probably still useful guide to boosters.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

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…
