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.

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Welcome to my non-technical and outdated but probably still useful guide to boosters.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