Eve Vegas in 2 months

Eve Vegas is coming in 2 months (well 10 weeks).

I made my hotel reservations about ten minutes ago at Paris. I still have to tend to my flight but I've been watching the prices and seeing what will worth best for me.

I decided to stay from Oct 4th to the 9th. The convention rates only go from the 5th to the 7th. However, they were more then happy to accomidate me and give me the convention rate for the entire stay.

Because I get my free upgrade (I won something still so excited) I booked the lower tier of room.

I'll be arriving Thursday afternoon. The start meet and greet is not until Friday evening, so this is a good thing.

I have no idea how many people going plan to do the Eve Convention side of it and how many are just there to enjoy Eve and hang out with their peeps. I'll be attending the bulk of the actual conference. The after stuff is up in the air since it seems like a lot of drinking binges to me. I'd prefer to spend that time with my people who may also be having drinking binges.

This is going to be rather interesting in many ways.

So far we've set up a few tentative plans. We have a BBQ place that Diz has picked out. We've some people who know the area and will drag us around for fun. We have to figure out stuff like what to call each other. Diz said he doesn't want to be called Diz. I think almost everyone else is fine with their game names. It will also save us from people with the same name. How terrible would that be?

I'll be taking pictures and putting up a photo gallery. My hope is to keep up with my blog in the convention and update on what is being talked about. We're supposed to have power and connections right there so that would be very nice. I don't know if they are going to stream it or not.

I'm excited. My days off have been approved at work. My hotel is booked. Now just my flight and packing.

Convention tickets for those still buying them are $250 with 186 left. It seems like the outpouring has been higher this year then others. Along with all of the other player gatherings, this is good stuff for Eve. This type of gathering helps to deepen player interest and create another layer to the game.

I love it.

Maybe if I find someone to go with me I'll debate fanfest in the spring.

Edit: I said 6 weeks but meant 10. I can't count.

  1. Shit, I guess I gotta move fast on the EVE Tix. :-/ Just when I got a notice in the mail: "Heh, a month ago when you were working 120hr pay periods, we overpaid you by 300 bucks and it was totally our fault... fuck you though, cause we're taking it back out of your next check -- Sincerely, The Gubmint"
    Cause, you know, Big Gub needs every penny it can get nowadays. lol.
    That woulda bought my ticket and at least 3 meals... :-/ Fuckers.

    Fuck it, I'm gonna go anyways, I think. It's my b-day and I'll say fuck it if I want to. lol.

    You know, you guys sound like you'd prob be a moar fun crowd to hang with than my SoCo cohorts, helicopter-dicking over their killboards and all.

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…

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…

Passion is so circular

I should dust the blog and delete the spam to leaks in through googles not so bad filters.

I log in from time to time to check my mail and see some of my friends. But, of lat I've commented on a few things in r/eve and it makes me think. Not of the impassioned things that I once thought about as I played the game but of the passions of the game.

I have the gift of several eve players are parts of my life. And we talk, but rarely about Eve. Most of them have left to some extent or another but the relationship that we gained is still strong. I do not hate Eve but I am still exhausted with Eve, even now when I am so far out. It seems to be CSM summit time and the anger and race that sits atop everything related to the game is still there.

It is interesting in its exhaustive existence. The passion is there and the player reaction continues to go full circle. Some things are still said the same way over, and over, and over again. Is it love? Is it hate? Or is it just stimulation that i…
