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.

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

And back again

My very slow wormhole adventure continues almost as slowly as I am terminating my island in Animal Crossing.  My class 3 wormhole was not where I wanted to be. I was looking for a class 1 or 2 wormhole. I dropped my probes and with much less confusion scanned another wormhole. I remembered to dscan and collect my probes as I warped to the wormhole. I even remembered to drop a bookmark, wormholes being such good bookmark locations later. My wormhole told me it was a route into low sec. I tilted my head. How circular do our adventures go. Today might be the day to die and that too is okay. That mantra dances in the back of my head these days. Even if someone mocks me, what does that matter? Fattening someone's killboard is their issue not mine. So I jumped through and found myself in Efa in Khanid, tucked on the edge of high sec and null sec. What an interesting little system.  Several connections to high sec. A connection to null sec. This must be quite the traffic system.    I am f

What are all of these buttons for?

My snooty villager, Naomi, wants to move out. I picked her because she is a blue cow with some wild makeup but we have not really bonded like I have with Savannah and Mitzi... oh wait yeah wrong game. So, my clan is almost finished the second step of the Manhunt in Division 2. We just have one more zone to clear and then we can hunt down the secondary target to reveal the next... err wait, waaaaaiittt... Sorry about that. Resetting things. What do I want to do? That has been my problem for a while now. If I play Eve, what do I want to do in Eve? While I did PvP it was never my draw. The old PvE sucks. The new PvE may be okay but do I want to do it? Who am I? What am I? And do I need to be unique and interesting? I think that I may want to look in small wormholes and try a exciting, fragile life. With some of the ships that are available I can, perhaps, have an interesting life where I may or may not fall prey to someone but it does not have to define what
