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.

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. …

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 …

Busy, busy, busy

I find that it is still easy to write about Eve. However, I've not been playing Eve. I spent most of the last few weeks finishing up my crochet project. It was a birthday present for my best friend. Since someone expressed interest in it, here it is.

It is displayed on a king size bed. I made it as a birthday present for my best friend. We've had twenty years of friendship. I met her online when I was a teenager. Our birthdays are two weeks apart so I celebrated mine by making her something. I'm not one to celebrate birthdays but now and then I try to pull myself to a social norm and do something special for the people I love.

I spent a long time fighting to be myself. I finally discovered a balance in this last handful of years. It is still a struggle but for some reason, in my late thirties, understanding is moving briskly along. With that understanding comes comfort. I don't have to fight about and for things like I used to. I don't have to make anyone accept me…
