Event Coordination

I am putting together a thing for my boys and extended family boys in two weeks.

It is dipping my toes into a more complex event coordination. Earlier this year Diz had a fleet concept idea but it never came through. The ships for it are still somewhere in some station. Anyway, it just never happened. I'd been anticipating this fleet for some time. Of late, my personal confidence level has grown in indirect ways. I'm ready to be Diz's coordination and planning. He just has to FC it.

I am trying to put it together. I'm am rather worried that the entire thing will be a flop. I just need people to show up and join fleet. I am providing the ships but I can not provide the people.

I just spent a lot of ISK on this project. I'm vest for it to be a success. By a success I just want good participation and people to leave fleet when we are done with a smile. I am hoping that if I set it up, they will come.

Dher said I should tell people what ships to bring. I vetoed that. I've learned that asking people to come prepared is a preassigned recipe for fail. I've written posts and today I am sending out a detailed mail. Yet, I know the day of, people will be like, "Oh! What are we doing? I don't have a ship." despite the two weeks of notice.

And that is fine. I just need their bodies and their participation.

I also need to grind up more ISK since I just spent ISK on the fleet. I am debating adding a donate to the Event Holder line at the end. Perhaps that is to silly or I am greedy. I'll figure that out if it is a success or not. Even if it is successful and everyone gushes about how wonderful it is, I won't be personally backing this type of thing on the regular.

Thinking about logistics... I did a Jita run the other day to pick up my orca pack and drop it off where my indy toon lives. I asked if anyone needed anything run up there is back. Its a 30 some odd jump trip so it takes a moment. Ender goes, "Take up my faction stuff?" I'm like, "Sure" so up pops a trade window. I dump it into my hold and then look at it.

It took me until Gallente space to clear the spots from my eyes from the shiny light erupting from all that bling. The non shiny items were not Ender's. Surprise. I also had a death grip on my jump/warp/cloak until I got there.

I jumped thorugh Uedama as well. The sheer amount of concord on the gate told me that there had been a gank. Go, go cloaky hauler.

Nex time I'm gonna put a bill limit on it or something. Gah.

  1. Ok I saw this post had no comments on it and I randomly decided it needed one (I do such things when I am tired) anyways,
    I would like to do a comparison on what those items are worth on the EVE market today and wonder if the difference is in the amount of drops available or the amount of people looking to find the items and therefore increasing supply and competition on the market. It is interesting to myself at least to wonder how much things have changed in 5 years.

  2. PS I know the feeling of hauling WAY more than your comfortable with I remember the first time I hauled a couple bill in my ship to/from a trade hub and anyone who doesn't sweat it obviously has a lot more isk than I do lol.

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…

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…
