Industrial Abilities

Ender logged in and asked, "Do you have anyone that needs jump clones?"

"Oh, you did it?"

"Yeah. Trying to remember how this works."

And as such, Baby Maker 2000 has come into our world because Ender wanted it.

I immediately suggested mining ops and I was told no, not really. Even with the new mining barge changes. Although, with ship prices as crazy as they are, we might unlazy ourselves... maybe....

A bit later, while I was cheerfully trying to get Razor to hug Ender for buying the Rorqual Ender goes, "Anyone want to do something mildly dangerous in a cloaky hauler?" I immediately volunteered Razor. However, his cloaky hauler alt was busy up in high sec doing POS runs.

Which reminds me that the other day, I did an emergency fuel block for him because someone (Razor) is a procrastinator and accidently purchased 10x more then he needed so now have 300mil in Caldari Fuel Blocks sitting in Rens...

"I guess then its Chella," I told Ender. "If her Viator blows up you gave it to her..."

Ender found a mining fleet in a grav site in one of the nearby systems. They had taken their barges off but left a few cans of ore behind. I sent Razor off to assist him and after I rebooted my computer (my sound like to stop working with my headset) I got on coms and sent Sugar and Chella to assist.

There was a bit over 10km3 of Crystalline Crokite in one can and some Dark Orcher in another. It was just enough to fit in my Viator with a few pieces left over. We were also hoping they'd warp in a counter fleet.

A purifier did warp in. Razor and I locked it. It was about 45k off of me. I wasn't tagging that with my auto cannons. Blinded to the excitement I headed for it and got trapped on the asteroid beside my can. Not just trapped on the asteroid, but it was hollow so you could go through it. I got sucked through the wall and stuck inside of it. The purifier warped off. I didn't care. I was having a serious 'oh shit' moment trying to work my way out of that damn asteroid (large collidable structure) and get into free space in case they dropped all kinds of things on us.

Large collidable objects will collide with your ship but not with ammunition. So, no protection. For a while I was floundering like a fish trying to make it off the dock and back into the water. It was terrible. Razor tried to shoot the purifier but it damped him. Razor is flashy red so the purifier did not take GCC. However, he did take aggression to our corporation.

Whoops.

The purifier warped off to the gate where he was tagged and popped by our scout. Bad day for him. Chella landed and I scooped the ore. Ender had already flipped the cans in case they came back in. The 16pieces of ore left I picked up with Sugar.

With no one around, we headed back out and the ore got dumped into the corp hanger. Its enough to build a battlecruiser. Nice little bit of mining there. :)

Sugar’s Non-Technical Guide to Making Boosters

Welcome to my non-technical and outdated but probably still useful guide to boosters.  There have been changes to how things are built in Eve. This was the old POS code before the introduction of new structures in 2016.   This is just a walk through on my wobbling path of booster production.  It took me half a dozen different documents to figure out what I needed to do to make these mythical things.  It is what I do.  It may not be perfect but it works.

This is pirate focused industry.
This guide brought to you by Lain asking me to write it after I tried to explain it in chat.

Why make boosters? Because drugs are good.  Really they are performance enhancers and performance enhancers can give someone that extra edge in PvP.  It was also because my boys used them and when they ran low they often ran out, I could be their supplier.  They would no longer hoard their drugs due to the length of time it takes to get fresh product.. The thought of being a drug kingpin was also very appealing. …

Have you done your Eve Vegas Survey?

I did attend Eve Vegas to the shock of many. I'd already paid for it and allotted the time. It seemed that I should go.


I went to the Grand Canyon and Hoover as well. This is not the space to discuss those amazing places or my new Camera.

Eve Vegas was a bit harder for me to go to then I expected. I've detached from Eve for the most part these past months. It is very easy to be angry, frustrated, and bitter about the past that I lived on. The game, its development, and the players move on while I find myself emotionally stuck. That emotional stickiness does not need to be given to everyone else. Part of experiencing it was shielding people from it. But, as I accepted my items and stared down the poor gentleman that tried to put a wristband around my wrist, I realized that I wasn't in as good of a place as I had hoped to be.

That is where the Survey comes in. There are a few things that I could say and did say. A few of the questions made me want to say a bit more.

One was …

CSM: Running for Office: Week Six

Nine days untill  the polls open.

It is amazing how much effort can go into crafting thirteen hundred characters. When I first looked at my CSM application I thought that it would be easy to write the official words. Of course it was not. The limit was the largest hurdle. I had so much to say and so few words to say it in. But, I eventually worked through it and submitted everything last Sunday evening. I sent off my passport at the same time and now it is just a short, but long wait.

Tomorrow is the final day of application submissions. Then, on the 3rd, we should find out who actually submitted their applications and passports and passed their background checks. The polls open the following Tuesday. I’ve checked my submission a few times. If I try to fill out the form with Sugar again it tells me that she has already submitted one. I sent my e-mail to the correct place. How I wish for a confirmation email to stare at. For now, i just fret. When I started the run I was worried about …
