The Path to Vegas

Somer Blink is about to celebrate crossing the 300 trillion mark. They have had a few shaky days with someone managing to drop some nasty scripting to steal user account logins due to their not realizing that they had a gambling problem.

Yet another reason Eve is so damn fun. Gambling. Player run built and run things.

Gambling made me remember that Eve Vegas approaches. It went from months and months and months to a sudden rush that its not that far away.

I finally got around to picking up my plane tickets. I'm a bit unhappy that I couldn't find a direct flight to Vegas. I kept hoping a flight would pop up. Somehow I will manage.

This means I'm set. Flight is booked. Hotel is booked. Convention ticket is purchased.

From those who are going not everyone is going to the convention. That is cool, there will be plenty of time to hang out with my people. I am very much interested in everything but Dust. If my concept of note taking and such works out I'll do everything there.

The Mittani is supposed to have a speech and I'm quite interested in that.

Supposedly we will have internet access and power in the conference. My laptop and I will be quite happy keeping track of what is going on if that is the case. I keep being told to take pictures. Therefor, I'll probably take a shit ton of pictures and set up a photo gallery for people that like that type of thing.

We'll see how it goes.

The CCP Developer list is:

CCP Arrow - Eve - UI Design

CCP Bettik - Eve - In game events/Missions/Story

CCP Guard - Eve - Community

CCP Soundwave - Eve - Eve Online Lead Designer

CCP Stillman - Eve - Security

CCP Vertias - Eve - Time Dilatation

CCP Nothing - Dust 514 - Game designer and economist

I remember what a mess some of the information filtering back from fanfest was. Hopefully I'll be able to be coherent. Or not. Who knows. I won't be suffering any hangovers thankfully so my inabilities will be 100% my own fail. I at least want to give it a try. My biggest complaint was that so little written information came out and everyone wanted everyone to watch the videos.

If I enjoy this I may think about going to fanfest in the spring.

  1. I hope you have fun in Vegas, that way you make it to Iceland. I was blown away by the experience and that was before Fanfest began.

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…

My Skill Queue went empty

The thing I miss most is having mail. When I log in I often check that line to see if I have mail. Unfortunately, I do not. I am not surprised. There is no reason for me to have mail. Yet, I do miss it.
In some ways having regular eve-mail was the moment that I was most connected. I had people to talk with and engage in. It was the closest I've ever been to having a normal social level that I was comfortable with. This shows you how introverted I am that eve-mail filled up my social meter. 
I log in and look around. Normally, I am looking for the people that I do not have other social contacts with. It is very, very easy to lose those relationships. The binding glue of the game has dissolved and friendship, as an adult, can take work. Even in this information time. Eve gave me things to talk about. Without it, I remember that I don't talk very much. Unless it is about dogs and driving my co-workers crazy when people come to me for advice they won't follow.
Since I logged …
