Catching Up

Niagara is a very lovely place to visit. A lot of water falling into more water. I don't see it as a yearly visit but it is nice to check it off of my list.

Driving back from vacation has given me time to start catching up to what happened while I was away. Eve has a terrible habit of not stopping just because one happens to log off.

It seems as if my boys were productive. They killed things and were killed. It seems that they bit at Procurer bait and it went sideways and upside down after that. I haven't picked up the details but from the amount of trolling and harassment of each other they are quite amused. Then, the group that set the trap recorded it and wishes to announce that we are terrible and they are awesome. So shall it be forever. Also several new apps are in or accepted. New members are healthy for the corp. Hopefully they don't mind that we are so terrible.

3D won a Ragnarok on Blink's celebration. I'm sure he is peeing himself he is so excited. It means no more PvE for him. a true Eve PvPer dream come true. He doesn't have a taste for blinged out battleships and T3s so I suspect he will be fat and happy of the wallet for a long time to come.

Ueber won one of the all dockable ship sets. No surprise there. I think he was going for a Titan but somehow I hope he will survive.

This is the second time I have had a short away from game break. I do not overly enjoy them. I do enjoy playing Eve. I don't return with some new realization reached where I throw down the chains of game play and run off to start hiking. The biggest thing it does is given me a break from the negatives while making me miss the positives.

For instance. I have given up a forum I was reading because the over all tone of negativity, bitterness, and arrogance has worn on me. I finally said screw it and closed its tab and deleted the bookmark. I edited my twitter list as well. I don't believe in closing myself off from information and opinions that are different from my own. Some of those just don't give enough of a return for absorbing their negatives and when I find myself wondering why I am reading them it is time to stop.

It has also broken me out of a gloomy cycle I was in, I believe. Taking time off is one thing but getting out of the house is another. My next stop will be Eve Vegas in October. But for that, I get to take the blog along on the ride.

  1. We've taken the kids up to Niagra in late October for the last 3 years. There is a massive indoor waterpart right downtown on top of a big parking garage. The boys love it - because of the time of the year we go, there aren't crowds at all, so the boys get to try everything repeatedly, with minimal (or no) waiting.

    Besides, I love a place where I can get served beer and nachos without wearing a shirt or shoes while overlooking my kids having a blast.

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. …

Have you done your Eve Vegas Survey?

I did attend Eve Vegas to the shock of many. I'd already paid for it and allotted the time. It seemed that I should go.


I went to the Grand Canyon and Hoover as well. This is not the space to discuss those amazing places or my new Camera.

Eve Vegas was a bit harder for me to go to then I expected. I've detached from Eve for the most part these past months. It is very easy to be angry, frustrated, and bitter about the past that I lived on. The game, its development, and the players move on while I find myself emotionally stuck. That emotional stickiness does not need to be given to everyone else. Part of experiencing it was shielding people from it. But, as I accepted my items and stared down the poor gentleman that tried to put a wristband around my wrist, I realized that I wasn't in as good of a place as I had hoped to be.

That is where the Survey comes in. There are a few things that I could say and did say. A few of the questions made me want to say a bit more.

One was …

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 …
