Meandering Through the Day

I was looking at my kill board for the month. Halfway through the month and I have seven kills. What does that mean? Nothing. Things have been busy. Long work week, Vegas, another long work week, losing my days off to more work stuff. I've been making isk however. Unlike a fleet I can drop in and out of PvE. Plus, some of my future plans are rapidly coming together and they need ISK.

It isn't that I haven't been PvPing. I've had a lot of misses lately. There was a blackbird the other day. One more volley and he'd have gone down. But he landed his jam and warped off. Ahh well. He was smart enough to dock otherwise I'd have had him waiting through the jump timer at the next gate. None of that pays for Chella's skill books. Capital Ships is 360mil ISK and Gallente Carrier is 450mil ISK. She will need Advanced Spaceship Command in a week (46mil ISK) and a month later, Capital Ships will come knocking asking for payment.

My goals for this morning were kind of shattered. I had planned to set up my legion and upgrade my CovOps pilot. She almost died four separate times the other day to spawns from uncracked cans. I was tired of it. However the deployment of Inferno 1.3 did not go as smoothly as planned. Woe is me. Lost gaming time in my already lost day off. How I suffer.

Somehow, I managed to endure and get it all done when I got home.

I have decided to branch my industry effort out a little bit. My current stuff is churning away nicely. I had a discussion with one of my boys about research and such things. I run a medium POS. I can't fit much more onto it then what it currently has. If we were to get into research I'd have to upgrade. However, I can do some moon mining during its idle time and take the modules off line that are inactive except for the build.

I would be mining a completely crap moon material. But, it'd be something in the background. I have done absolutely no research into this and given it about 6 minutes of thought. That often works best for me so I'm going to go ahead and see how it works. The initial investment was small.

Hopefully this weekend, some pewpew.

Memoirs - Part One: Virtual Worlds

Virtual Realities: Memoirs of an internet spaceship politician by Sugar Kyle CSM9, CSMX
This is where it really started. The day I lost my mind.

I never told anyone how long I had been debating my run for the ninth CSM. The thought started to circle in the back of my thoughts in November. I was back home after a sucessful Eve Vegas. I had met a few people. My notes from the presentations and round tables had gone over very well. I felt useful, comfortable, and excited that I was a member of the community. I belonged and I cared about this thing that I belonged to. That thing was the community of Eve Online.
Eve Vegas of 2013 was when I found out that a conversation I had been fortunate enough to have with CCP Masterplan at Fanfest of that same year, had sparked enough interest to gain developer attention. At Eve Vegas I learned that they would be working on ideas based off of the premise that I had presented. Only days later, a developer posted to the Offical Eve Online forums about i…

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. …

Will the real player please stand up?

I installed Eve on my Surface the other day. I then remembered why my last laptop, when I was playing Eve, was an Alienware gaming laptop. My Surface, wonderful creature that it is, runs Eve at such a tiny magnification that I squint to see it. I could change my settings and adjust for this. Instead, I'll stick to my desktop and try to remember to log in and see the latest round of changes.

Yet, here I am writing.

Deep in the muzzy field of my brain that has been working almost daily for the last six weeks, random thoughts bubble up. I may not log in and spend my time focusing on Eve as a world, but it hasn't slipped from me. I've picked up an amazing group of friends that I talk to daily and many of them still play enough that I skim the social edges. At times I'm angry that the same social problems exist. At others, I'm fascinating by the process.

Today is a fascinating day because I've been answering e-mails. I still get e-mails occasionally from people who …
