Wormhole Rescue

[I asked permission before I wrote about this]

I got a private message from a corpmate. I was a bit surprised because we normally chat across our private channel and only a few other people were on. However, I answered it to have him beg me to get him out of a wormhole.

"I forgot to bookmark the exit."

I could only shake my head. I'm sure it has happened to many and will happen to me. I'm guessing he scanned it down, saved it, changed ships, and took two toons in both in combat ships and just forgot to bookmark.

"What system were you in?"

He told me. I logged on my scanning scout and headed over to scan him out.

"Do you remember where it was?"

"Somewhere near the middle of the system. There are only two wormholes there."

Okay. Scan I did. I found one in the middle of the system, pulled my probes and jumped in.

"Here?"

"No. :("

"Okay." I hopped back out. Before I did, I glanced around and was amazed at how beautiful the space was. I didn't take a picture and for that I regreat. It was a dark, mottled blue. Enchanting really.

I scanned down the second wormhole and jumped in. "Here?"

"Yes!" and he warped to me.

I took a moment to look at this one becuase there was a flickering near the sun. I realized the sun itself was pulsing. So, was this system a pulsar then? How pretty it was.

I didn't realize that they were so gorgeous. How no one has ever brought that up, I don't know. It almost makes me want to try it out. Almost. I'm still having issues with it and want someone to hold my hand. I've become more comfortable in null but still...

Whatever...

So wormhole space is pretty as is the rest of eve.

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…

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…
