TCS: Plaster and Lathe

I was looking at my Aura app and my market alt had to much cash in her wallet. Much, to much cash. I needed to restock our little home in solitude with a seriousness. The only problem is that I didn't take the time to load up all of my tools and set up my accounts on my laptop to manage and monitor the store. Nor did I want to desync my home system to badly.

The only answer was to wing it and randomly buy what I thought I needed.

That made complete sense to me. I carry around a general idea of what my store needs in my mind. It is thanks to the icons. I'm a fairly visual person in some ways. I also know what is needed and I can look over the market history to see what is selling. This gives me a general goal of restocking highly used things.

The first thing is that I have not been stocking everything that I have. The other people who are not 'us' in Solitude have a bad habit of buying out my stacks of reasonably priced modules and restocking them for a higher price on the same market. As always, I fight it in the same, predictable way. I relist more at the price I want them at. Over and over and over again.

Normally, I don't like holding back stock. However, Solitude is a tremendous pain in the butt for me to supply. I need a cyno chain and I have functioned without a cyno chain for most of the year. It is making me pull my hair out some. If not a cyno chain I just need time. Time is not something that I have had much of these last two weeks. Life should go back to normal on Monday, but until then, time is not on my side.

Thankfully, Vand has been doing jump freighter runs. I logged in, purchased a bunch of stuff before breakfast, contracted to him, and he told me he jumped it later. I also forgot to pay him because I had not read his forum post on how he handles being a jump freighter pilot. I don't charge people for stuff so it didn't occur to me that anyone else would charge for stuff. Whoops. I'll calculate it up and pay him later.

I then logged in to list and realized that my market alt was in Jita. No problem. I'd take the fee hit and use Chella to list. Chella, it seems, only has 21 orders available because she is not a trained market alt. Sigh. That meant I had to move my Market alt down and work her through low sec and get her to the station to list things.

While I traveled someone decided to buy out and relist my Damage Control IIs. To bad for the I had plenty let. I split my stack and relisted them at the price I wish my corpmates to buy them at. With that done I started to list things and discovered I'd done a terrible job with the buying. Well, not terribly but I'll say I scored a 60%.

Oh well. Consumables restocked (mostly) if I ignore the stack of isotopes sold under buy costs cuz I was tired. I'll get it cleaned up soon enough. Taking time off of a market is not a smooth task.

Memoirs - Part One: Virtual Worlds

Virtual Realities: Memoirs of an internet spaceship politician by Sugar Kyle CSM9, CSMX
This is where it really started. The day I lost my mind.

I never told anyone how long I had been debating my run for the ninth CSM. The thought started to circle in the back of my thoughts in November. I was back home after a sucessful Eve Vegas. I had met a few people. My notes from the presentations and round tables had gone over very well. I felt useful, comfortable, and excited that I was a member of the community. I belonged and I cared about this thing that I belonged to. That thing was the community of Eve Online.
Eve Vegas of 2013 was when I found out that a conversation I had been fortunate enough to have with CCP Masterplan at Fanfest of that same year, had sparked enough interest to gain developer attention. At Eve Vegas I learned that they would be working on ideas based off of the premise that I had presented. Only days later, a developer posted to the Offical Eve Online forums about i…

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…

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…
