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. :)

Taboo Questions

Let us talk contentious things. What about high sec? When will CCP pay attention to high sec and those that cannot spend their time in dangerous space?  This is somewhat how the day started, sparked by a question from an anonymous poster. Speaking about high sec, in general, is one of the hardest things to do. The amount of emotion wrapped around the topic is staggering. There are people who want to stay in high sec and nothing will make them leave. There are people who want no one to stay in high sec and wish to cripple everything about it. There are people in between, but the two extremes are large and emotional in discussion. My belief is simple. If a player wishes to live in high sec, I do not believe that anything will make them leave that is not their own curiosity. I do not believe that we can beat people out of high sec or destroy it until they go to other areas of space. Sometimes, I think we forget that every player has the option to not log back in. We want them to log

Conflicted

Halycon said it quite well in a comment he left about the skill point trading proposal for skill point changes. He is conflicted in many different ways. So am I. Somedays, I don't want to be open minded. I do not want to see other points of view. I want to not like things and not feel good about them and it be okay. That is something that is denied me for now. I've stated my opinion about the first round of proposals to trade skills. I don't like them. That isn't good enough. I have to answer why. Others do not like it as well. I cannot escape over to their side and be unhappy with them. I am dragged away and challenged about my distaste.  Some of the people I like most think the change is good. Other's think it has little meaning. They want to know why I don't like it. When this was proposed at the CSM summit, I swiveled my chair and asked if they realized that they were undoing the basic structure that characters and game progression worked under. They said th

Maybe one day!

 [15:32:10] Trig Vaulter > Sugar Kyle Nice bio - so carebear sweet - oh you have a 50m ISK bounty - so someday more grizzly  [15:32:38 ] Sugar Kyle > /emote raises an eyebrow to Trig  [15:32:40 ] Sugar Kyle > okay :)  [15:32:52 ] Sugar Kyle > maybe one day I will try PvP out When I logged in one of the first things I did was answer a question in Eve Uni Public Help. It was a random question that I knew the answer of. I have 'Sugar' as a keyword so it highlights green and catches my attention. This made me chuckle. Maybe I'll have to go and see what it is like to shoot a ship one day? I could not help but smile. Basi suggested that I put my Titan killmail in my bio and assert my badassery. I figure, naw. It was a roll of the dice that landed me that kill mail. It doesn't define me as a person. Bios are interesting. The idea of a biography is a way to personalize your account. You can learn a lot about a person by what they choose to put in their bio
