Vacation Time

It was murmured about a few weeks ago but Ender took the time (truly shocking stuff trust me) to write a corp mail that we are going on vacation so contract ships to the haulers.

While THC2 is a rather static presence in Molden Heath, occasionally they (and now we) do leave. It seems to be a once a year thing for a few weeks to maybe a month. We'll roll out to one of our secondary bases and bother the natives for a while.

I'll miss red space. It is currently home in a way no other place in the game is. Still, a new backdrop and some new experiences will be welcome. I don't know how long we will stay. A few weeks a month or two? As long as we find it interesting and the homesickness stays at bay.

I've packed some ships and some frigs. We're gonna play in null more. I packed PoohBear the secondary Sleip, leaving Sleipbear at home. Ammo is a go, Scimi is on the way. Should be interesting times.

I cooked a Cynabal as well. Sugar has Gallente Cruiser V in 5 days and will add them to her ship list. I fit it up (minus two rigs I need to pick up with my next ammo run) and then all the ships got contracted over to the carrier pilots.

Next Vacation I'll be able to move my own things. Nice thought for the future. Snowflake the Thanatos will be undocking soon enough (months still but lets pretend).

  1. The anticipation for a trip to be taken is one of my favorite things though I will admit I end up packing things in advance and then usually end up in a "Hurry up and wait" stage, but still, gearing up to do something new and different is always exciting!

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…

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…

Passion is so circular

I should dust the blog and delete the spam to leaks in through googles not so bad filters.

I log in from time to time to check my mail and see some of my friends. But, of lat I've commented on a few things in r/eve and it makes me think. Not of the impassioned things that I once thought about as I played the game but of the passions of the game.

I have the gift of several eve players are parts of my life. And we talk, but rarely about Eve. Most of them have left to some extent or another but the relationship that we gained is still strong. I do not hate Eve but I am still exhausted with Eve, even now when I am so far out. It seems to be CSM summit time and the anger and race that sits atop everything related to the game is still there.

It is interesting in its exhaustive existence. The passion is there and the player reaction continues to go full circle. Some things are still said the same way over, and over, and over again. Is it love? Is it hate? Or is it just stimulation that i…
