Ode to New Stuffs

It is patch day!  I have serious posting that I might finish today but I must take a moment for more important things.

First: Ender.

I discuss Ender a lot.  He is a bitter vet. He feels no need to candy coat things. He is anti-social as all fucking hell. Razor is his favorite target to tease.  He is also a very amazing person and under that hard, spiky, crusty layer he does an amazing job at taking care of the corporation.

A simple, terse corporation mail this morning made me smile:
"armor honeycombing skillbooks dropped in hangers."
Last patch Ren was running around handing out the new sensor compensation skillbooks.  These are the things about a good corporation that make me so willing to invest my time into them.  Sure, getting a skill book is not a big deal.  But, to take the time to buy a stack and drop them into hangers makes sure that people are taken care of and that is what he did before he went to bed.

I then got a bit worried as I logged in.


What was Eve trying to say?  However, other people said that they got the same tutorial message and I am, in fact, not special.  I was still in my Stiletto and it did not appear that I was podded recently.  Mayhaps, a side effect of the patch.

But really, the most exciting part of patch day is that I can gizoogle the patch notes.  I feel that these delicate conversions of information into a wholly new spectrum of depth and sensory perception do nothing but enhance the experience of the patch.  To make sure that they are not lost to the depths of history I shall start to capture these crystalline droplets of individual beauty and save them in a permanent page to be browsed for eternity.

They can be found here in my new patch note archive.

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…
