Experiment Failure

I'm going to list my tengu project as a failure right now. While it did what I wanted it to do, I din't enjoy doing it. I found that I do not enjoy using missiles. Perhaps, I will adjust to it later. As is, I am used to blasters and auto cannons. The differences with missiles and travel time and not hitting things and size issues is just blah for me. Maybe with better or maxed skills, I'd find it more pleasant. As for now, I don't. I was told how awesome the Tengu is and that I should want to use it. They are amazing PvE boats. Well, I do not. While I try to be open minded and take the advice of others into consideration, sometimes it does not work out. If I had said "I refuse to try the Tengu cuz its not what I want" that would be one thing. However, I tried it and I do not like it. PVE boats have not been the most productive path for me so far. I've found that happens for me in Eve. Some ships and weapons work for me and some do not. I love my Jag and really can't be bothered to fly my Wolf. They are the same hull and almost identical in looks but I really dislike one over the other. PvE has been and still is my bane in Eve. While I am getting better at it, it is still not easy or pleasant for me. I'd figured out something that was working, productively. I decided to try to expand upon that. My expansion project didn't go as well as I had hoped. But, that is part of learning. Not everything works for everyone and no amount of ranting signs will make it happen. So, I'll go back to duel boxing sites. It was much more productive then what I have been doing. I also won't have to suffer the horror of faction missile prices again. Gag me with a spoon. Thankfully some of my faction shinies in Jita sold, leaving my wallet fluffier then it has been all month.

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…
