Eve Dreams

I had an Eve dream which I posted on twitter.It was halarious enough, and I remembered it well enough, that I'd post it for people to snicker at me.

I woke up around 0700 and I laughed because it was Saturday. Wake up or go to sleep? I woke up so early because I am normally up at 0500 for work. I decided, sleep! Back I drifted off after pulling my cat off of my face where she was trying to greet me.


Normal morning picture with this kitty. She has recently gone blind but that hasn't stopped her from not realizing this and still find my face to be in every morning. But, anyway, its Saturday, mmmm sleep... and back I drifted to start playing Eve.

I was in my Jaguar flying towards a stargate when I saw an Orca coak in front of me. I realized that it couldn't warp when cloaked so I burned right for it and bumped into it. It decloaked and I started to point it but it warped away. I warped after it and suddenly we are in a field on a planet, but obviously this is normal.

So there is the Orca and I'm chasing it and it is evading me. It dodges me (this is a dream remember) and flies away really fast, skimming the grass. I chase it down and find it and start to point it as it warps away again! Where? It warped up to one of the bulletin boards that is floating in the sky (because we're on a planet in a field). I follow after it and bump it as I try to target it but none of my targeting is working. I'm trying to click in space (except my view is not a monitor playing Eve) to target it. I just can't target it and it manages to warp/fly off as I'm chasing it down hitting my targeting and nothing happening.

Then it flies into a mall and up some steps where it bashes into a wall and bounces off into an elevator which closes. I woke up incredibly frustrated. Grrr! Why didn't my lock work. What was wrong with my keyboard? Of course, I started to wonder why the Orca flew up a set of steps and twisted into an Elevator as well.

So. Yeah. Dreams.

  1. There is probably inner meaning here somewhere. I don't think that orca is really an orca.

  2. That sounds like a die hard tackle pilot lol subconciously obsessing about those that get away for even when you do your absolute best or your technique is good some do get away.
    Extremely Frustrating

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…

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…

Passion is so circular

I should dust the blog and delete the spam to leaks in through googles not so bad filters.

I log in from time to time to check my mail and see some of my friends. But, of lat I've commented on a few things in r/eve and it makes me think. Not of the impassioned things that I once thought about as I played the game but of the passions of the game.

I have the gift of several eve players are parts of my life. And we talk, but rarely about Eve. Most of them have left to some extent or another but the relationship that we gained is still strong. I do not hate Eve but I am still exhausted with Eve, even now when I am so far out. It seems to be CSM summit time and the anger and race that sits atop everything related to the game is still there.

It is interesting in its exhaustive existence. The passion is there and the player reaction continues to go full circle. Some things are still said the same way over, and over, and over again. Is it love? Is it hate? Or is it just stimulation that i…
