Petitions

Of late, I have made two petitions. They are my first and second and I made them within two weeks or so of each other.

The first was a comment on the incorrect gender selection to a bounty payout notification eve-mail. I received a response the other day that said:

Hello,

Thank you very much for bringing this to our attention. I will see to it that this gets fixed.

This petition will now be closed. Fly safe!

Best regards,
GM Ninjapirate
The EVE Online Customer Support Team

Flush with my success, I decided to attempt another one. This time, I was looking at the big picture. I thought I had a bug. I'm not sure that has ever happened to me before. It caused a lot of personal excitement.

There is one particular Mag site that spawns improperly. The site has 4 cans. Each can is surrounded by 4 NPC pirates. However, one can spawns blue wrecks instead of the NPC pirates. It has done this for a few months now, after a patch.

I wrote up the bug report on it, where it was, the name of the site, what time I was doing it, the behavior of it, etc.

The response came back. It old me to clear my cashe because that can cause problems.

I'm not sure how my cashe can cause the games NPCs to not spawn, but instead spawn as WRECKS that are set to free for all (blue). That is a lot of power on the clients side.

I will enjoy my easy to access can and loot the wrecks I didn't waste ammo on.

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…

The lack of perfection

I had the pleasure of having Keskora Yaari. We met a bit after I started the CSM and hit it off. As friendships often do it developed into being about the people and not the medium that we met each other in. My new house has a guest room (my previous one was taken over by my mother who moved in and never moved out) and it was fun to have someone in that I could babble about a large part of my last six months of house renovations.

I tried to pamper and spoil her. Those are always the most fun things to do when a friend comes over. I did make sure she was stuffed full of local interesting things. It is only fair, after all. My abilities as a host have improved and I was pleased with myself.

One of our interesting links, outside of Eve, is dogs. We are both dog people. Over my years blogging I have discussed and shared time my creatures. From the passing of Nyx to the acquisition of Intuition. He is doing great by the way. He is two and a half now!


We discussed Eve some but it wasn't…
