Crash the Camp; Sub Revenge

Earlier in the evening we had an offer of a brawl with Eve Uni. While people assembled themselves one of our drakes was caught in a gate camp several systems away.

Undock to go save him...

But it was to late. Sigh. He podded his way to where we were and we shipped him into something else so that we could brawl with Eve Uni.

After we waved goodby to them we shipped up and went hunting. The gatecamp was run by our new favorte friends. I was given word that they caught someone from Eve Uni in their trap as they passed through...

Not a problem.

Nice little fleet.

With word that they were still there, we streaked towards them. At least one of them would be GCC due to their attack on Eve Uni. That meant they would not be on gate but would be close by. With two bait ships sent in, they pounced. Bait jumped gate and the rest of us came in afterwards.

The situation was not nearly as pretty. Their drake/drake/cane/rapier quickly turned into a cane/rapier escaping and two drake wrecks.

The tables were turned. We slunk past them and crept into the next system. We tried to engage them a few more times but people were starting to yawn and post battle fatigue mixed with it being late night for many members kicked in. We headed home and broke the fleet down.

Time for some more time on SiSi for the AT Practice.

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…
