Eve Vegas 2013

Eve Vegas 2013 - October 18-20th 2013

Already?  Oh yes.  Ten months away.  Fanfest is not even here yet, but prepare.  Its not in Iceland its in Las Vegas again.  Another chance to have some fun with cheaper prices and more options then before.

The Forum Thread is up.
Hello there, are you sober yet? It's been a couple months and in making sure we fulfill our commitents to casino accounting we are finalizng the contract for EveVegas 2013. As voted in by a very large majority at EveVegas 2013 we are moving to the Rio where they are offering us their suites for $99 (their website is showing a price of $200 right now so thats a good deal) more excitiing for you as an attendee we are negioating for 10 high roller experiences, limos, suites and diamond status packages. 
In addition I'm trying to see what we can do to mix things up this year and make eve vegas 2013 even better than 2012. This includes:1. Workshops, instead of just listening to people talk at you break off into high/low/null sec rooms to talk with the devs in charge of your player experience about their plans and your input2. More prizes, working hard this year to get more sponsors involved3. A bigger better reception, still working the details on this so I don't want to promise something we can't deliver.
I'm currently looking at the weekend of Oct 18-20, 2013 and hope to have more news to share in the near future. 
Update: Contract signed, more details to come.

From Facebook:

The contract is signed, here are some details
Suite at the Rio $99 a night (it's an all suite hotel)Free internetNight club passes 
I have lots of diamond cards, limo rides and suites to give away.
Also got a good discount on food and beverage this year so we can afford to give you more for your dollar!
Speaking of, we are in talks now for some big supirses but I won't disclose any details until its firmed up.. no need to let you down if something can't happen!
In convention space news we got the main ballroom with a built in stage as well as 3 break out rooms. This idea this year is to break up the talks with break out rooms divided into high sec/low sec/null sec where you can talk back to the devs and work up new ideas.
More to come! 
Just letting people get their planning started.

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Welcome to my non-technical and outdated but probably still useful guide to boosters.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. …

CSM: Running for Office: Week Six

Nine days untill  the polls open.

It is amazing how much effort can go into crafting thirteen hundred characters. When I first looked at my CSM application I thought that it would be easy to write the official words. Of course it was not. The limit was the largest hurdle. I had so much to say and so few words to say it in. But, I eventually worked through it and submitted everything last Sunday evening. I sent off my passport at the same time and now it is just a short, but long wait.

Tomorrow is the final day of application submissions. Then, on the 3rd, we should find out who actually submitted their applications and passports and passed their background checks. The polls open the following Tuesday. I’ve checked my submission a few times. If I try to fill out the form with Sugar again it tells me that she has already submitted one. I sent my e-mail to the correct place. How I wish for a confirmation email to stare at. For now, i just fret. When I started the run I was worried about …

Busy, busy, busy

I find that it is still easy to write about Eve. However, I've not been playing Eve. I spent most of the last few weeks finishing up my crochet project. It was a birthday present for my best friend. Since someone expressed interest in it, here it is.

It is displayed on a king size bed. I made it as a birthday present for my best friend. We've had twenty years of friendship. I met her online when I was a teenager. Our birthdays are two weeks apart so I celebrated mine by making her something. I'm not one to celebrate birthdays but now and then I try to pull myself to a social norm and do something special for the people I love.

I spent a long time fighting to be myself. I finally discovered a balance in this last handful of years. It is still a struggle but for some reason, in my late thirties, understanding is moving briskly along. With that understanding comes comfort. I don't have to fight about and for things like I used to. I don't have to make anyone accept me…
