Eve Online Offline Online

There was a buzz and rustle through the community a few months ago when John Lander announced that he was moving divisions. Is CCP dying? Is everyone bailing ship? Oh noes. The tin foil was passed out and careful sculpted into helmets across the game. The move that Mr. Lander made was to CCP's Mobile division and some other stuff. Notice that I am a terrible reporter.

There were some cheers. Yay! Eve Mobile! What we all wanted. This is why CREST is good say the people who understand it. Some other stuff goes here. Read this article on Massively if you'd like. I'm fine with that. I'm an android user. My phone is normally at hand or in my pocket. I've even been told it makes phone calls. I'm not sure about that. I do love my internet connection. I'd love more Eve functionality in my life. I'd love my apps to be better. I don't rant and rave because I cannot code them so I am instead happy with the free product that I have. That doesn't mean I don't long for more functionality (mostly in the form of better corp market tracking).

Last Friday, I was heading off to Niagara, in a car and looking at my market orders thanks to Aura. I noticed that the Angry Oddelulf Newbie had purchased all of my liquid ozone. That was odd. What was he doing with it? I suspected restocking it for a higher amount which is silly but common. However, liquid ozone is very important to the heartbeat of non-high sec space. We have jump capable ships to move and we move them constantly. I like to keep it stocked in station for emergency cyno reasons as well.

He had purchased my stock in Oddelulf. I decided to solve the problem. I opened up Eve Gate and write Ueberlisk an eve-mail asking him to pull some of the liquid ozone out of the hoard he rested himself upon and list it since I would be away from game for several days. It took me two tries to write it. The first time I had an error and when I hit the x it clicked through to delete my message. The second time I sent it but as with all Eve Gate msgs from the phone it was an unformated mess because the html code does't work.

While Ueber got the message and I was able to manage Eve Online Offline, which is absolutely awesome, I wrote a simple tweet. There I said:
I am normally a massive CCP fangirl. I am very, very tolerant of things not being perfect. But I have my limits. Not being able to formulate paragraphs properly and the html I do painfully type in by phone failing half the time makes me angry. I found myself thinking, "mobile Eve online is great but I'd be so happy if Eve Gate, a fantastic idea, was not such shit to use on a cellphone."

Ten years ago mobile phones where not what they are now. I know that the last four or five years I have had high functionality with my cellphones. I use them for everything. Google has refined Android and web borrowing has become a smooth experience on my little hand held device. Eve Gate, what should be one of my primary connections to Eve Online Offline has not followed. I do not hear it spoken of. It's tucked away somewhere over there. Abandoned. Neglected. A poor experience.

I was flipping through my new corp messages on Eve Gate as well. Most of them are several hundred days old. It has the stark, empty feel of an abandoned application. What I did find was complaints about Eve Gate. The exact same complaints that people have now only two and three years old. The chances are very high that this dried up dead horse may have some juice left in the marrow if I beat it long and hard enough. I feel the need to be positive and try.

Beyond that, I have no idea what the Angry Oddelulf Newbie did with the liquid ozone. He did list some of it. Ueber however entered into the arena of market PvP and chased him out. I noticed that he purchased all of my liquid ozone from another station I had it listed at. He has not relisted it. I have no idea what he is doing with it. Drinking it? My prices are not the lowest in the region by any means. And he ice mines.

Oh well.

  1. Maybe he thinks he's smart and if he buys all your ozone, you won't be able to cyno in and kill him over and over again as much.

    Silly miner

  2. There's a large disparity between the isotope:ozone ratio in ice and that needed to manufacture fuel blocks -- expect to see him listing POS fuel real soon now!

  3. The little line above is how you can get a proper paragraph using eve gate on your phone.

It was a random question that I knew the answer of. I have 'Sugar' as a keyword so it highlights green and catches my attention. This made me chuckle. Maybe I'll have to go and see what it is like to shoot a ship one day? I could not help but smile. Basi suggested that I put my Titan killmail in my bio and assert my badassery. I figure, naw. It was a roll of the dice that landed me that kill mail. It doesn't define me as a person. Bios are interesting. The idea of a biography is a way to personalize your account. You can learn a lot about a person by what they choose to put in their bio

Taboo Questions

Let us talk contentious things. What about high sec? When will CCP pay attention to high sec and those that cannot spend their time in dangerous space?  This is somewhat how the day started, sparked by a question from an anonymous poster. Speaking about high sec, in general, is one of the hardest things to do. The amount of emotion wrapped around the topic is staggering. There are people who want to stay in high sec and nothing will make them leave. There are people who want no one to stay in high sec and wish to cripple everything about it. There are people in between, but the two extremes are large and emotional in discussion. My belief is simple. If a player wishes to live in high sec, I do not believe that anything will make them leave that is not their own curiosity. I do not believe that we can beat people out of high sec or destroy it until they go to other areas of space. Sometimes, I think we forget that every player has the option to not log back in. We want them to log

Summer in Iceland - Day Six

It is the final day and we have moved past Sion's shark consumption. We left Cafe Loki and just strolled back through town. I wandered in and out of stores looking for soft gloves or socks. There are lots of gloves, socks, scarves, hats, and etc all over the place but most of them are made of wool and are as harsh and scratchy as anything I have ever seen. I wanted something soft and silky and amazing and I didn't find that which is okay. The general game plan was to find this Ice Cream place across the street from CCP. It seems that they make their ice cream daily and it is the most amazing ice cream ever. So, we head to this ice cream place which is also near a grocery store and some museums. We go in and Corbexx orders some terrible concoction of salted peanuts and some candy that I hate. He said it was delicious. I was stuck staring at the flavors and not knowing what anything was because I'm illiterate in Iceland. I also have an ongoing problem with catching the
