Blog Note: Orginization

I am terrible at tagging my posts.  Terrible. I forget every single time. I then promise myself I will start to tag. I do it for a bit. I forget again.  The only conclusion is that tagging does not work for me and I have to develop another method of internal organization.

Because there is a search function to search inside of the blog, I've started turning posts into topic format.  Hopefully, this will become more common for topic posts.  Normal just post posts will remain randomly titled as they always are.  Because I have no idea what people read and if people want to skip over topics or find topics easily I'm trying to categorize them.

Right now I kind of have a few topics I'm trying to use with regularity.

Rambling: First: These will almost always have a TL;DR. These are thought posts.  I don't know what else to call them.  Normally I dig around in my own mind and thoughts and coat the blog all over with my personal opinions on various aspects, often social, of Eve.  I have no idea why I write these.  I am also never sure how they will be taken.  Putting up a deep, personal opinion can be hard (for me).  I do it anyway.  I often expect these posts to be laughed at and trolled.  These are the types of things that I can fill chat rooms with blocks of text over while people stare at me in somewhat horrified, stunned "wtf".  I get passionate about things with no one to ramble to about them. This way they can be easier skipped!

Origin of a Spaceship: These belong to the Origin of a Spaceship 'book' I am creating. If anyone is curious, this is an ongoing project that I am trying to put up one topic per week.  I welcome topic suggestions.  If you like it and want to see something turned into randomness from my imagination, send me a mail/make a comment/whatever.  The project is evolving as I figure out how to properly structure the information into the books format for easy reading.

TCS: I think this is the header I will use for the Cougar Store and all of my learning about running a market, trading and my whining about hauling things. I will whine. I promise.

PewPew: I tried to think of something snazzy and cool but I always call PvP pewpew so I might as well stick with what works.  This way when I write about my adventures in shooting spaceships it is a bit easier.

I won't grant the CSM with an entire sub title but I will try to title CSM posts so that they are easy to skip for those that don't care about it and/or are tired of hearing about it.

Now, I may try to go back and edit some posts with proper topics. I won't promise because every time I think I'm going to do that type of thing I don't.  Anyway, with this little rule set I am creating for myself people should be able to select their subject matter with a bit more ease unless they just read everything.

I try to limit myself to no more than three posts a day.  Normally, most of what I say isn't exciting or time sensitive.  That way I will just slot them over into other days.  I post daily but I don't drive myself to it. I sometimes have skip days and late posts.  I will also continue to dedicate myself to gizoogling the major patch note releases.

And thank you for the comments fixing the typos and mistakes and general things that fill every single thing I write. I'd love to promise that it is only an occasional thing but that would be a lie.  I do try to improve and believe that the general quality of my writing has reflected this.

Thank you for reading! I hope to continue to entertain (for good or bad) with my antics through this game.

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…

My Skill Queue went empty

The thing I miss most is having mail. When I log in I often check that line to see if I have mail. Unfortunately, I do not. I am not surprised. There is no reason for me to have mail. Yet, I do miss it.
In some ways having regular eve-mail was the moment that I was most connected. I had people to talk with and engage in. It was the closest I've ever been to having a normal social level that I was comfortable with. This shows you how introverted I am that eve-mail filled up my social meter. 
I log in and look around. Normally, I am looking for the people that I do not have other social contacts with. It is very, very easy to lose those relationships. The binding glue of the game has dissolved and friendship, as an adult, can take work. Even in this information time. Eve gave me things to talk about. Without it, I remember that I don't talk very much. Unless it is about dogs and driving my co-workers crazy when people come to me for advice they won't follow.
Since I logged …
