Meta Tinfoil

I got a msg while at work asking, “Does THC2 convo spam?”
 “No.”
 “Someone has accused Diz of it on reddit.”
 “Oh?”  I went to look.

I read reddit but I don’t comment.  I had seen the thread but I tend not to go to the ship/pod loss threads.  I have nothing to say in them.  Loss happens.  I don’t spend my time making judgment calls over fights I was not involved in based off of a loss mail.  It took me a minute to realize that that was the thread with Diz’s pod loss.  Oh. Okay.

Top comment with 9 upvotes is accusing us of being convo spammers.

Interesting.  I made a reddit account. I was all ready to say: “In the year that I have been with THC2 it has never been discussed, suggested, or ordered.  Considering the small size of our groups I am not sure how we are going to convo spam with 3-8 (maybe 10) people.”

I stopped myself before I hit send.  Heh.  Reddit is not a place that defending would work out well.  I had almost forgotten. At least I have a reddit account now.  Maybe I will use it. I enjoy reading reddit but I have had enough traffic flow through when people have linked blog posts that I am wary of stepping into that pool as more than an observer.  I just wrote the other day about picking and choosing my battles vs my energy.  I have energy to blog about it but not to engage in a comment up/down vote battle.

Of course, with convo spamming being illegal the tinfoil hat may say that I am not going to admit to wrong doing publicly   However, I didn’t know about convo spamming until the articles about it last year and the judgment that it was an exploit.  Being silly, I use convo requests to talk to people.  Sure, there is a chance that there is a massive conspiracy to not let me know that it is going on but considering that most of my corpmates don’t have any channel but fleet and corp chat on blink I’m rather comfortable saying it is not something we do.

  1. Not sure why people would be so interested in my losing a pod. It happens. As it was I was caught by surprise just after I had been caught by surprise by a place hot drop. So when I jumped my flashy noon ship into a frigate gate camp I knew I was in bad shape. Went to warp the ship off it popped warped my pod off and it died as I was in warp. Oh well it happens what ya gonna do. As far as THC Congo spamming people it just haters saying whatever they feel like just to spread some hate around. THC is to busy fighting to Congo spam

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…
