Where do I Eve

Kane Rizzel asked and some people have answered so.... bandwagon time...

It popped up and some have posted their setups. I've posted mine a few weeks or months ago but why not.


Link for anyone who the photo does not work for.

I have two boxes on the floor right now. The red one is about to be retired to the server rack for secondary uses. The blue one is my hand me down from my husband. I live in a town house with an open floor plan. My desk is up against the railing to the steps outside. I have windows behind me. We took over half of the main floor as an office/media room. We used to use the basement room and my husband asked one day why we were crowding ourselves in. We don't entertain and we were not using most of our house. It may not be 'right' or 'traditional' to turn your living room into an office but we are a lot happier with it and use more of our home because of it. After all, we pay for the place and its the two of us and the pets. Kinda like the server system in the garage. It works for us.

The monitors are a HP W2207h (22 inch) that rotates. The other two are Samsung SyncMaster SA350a (27 inch). My desk is a kitchen table from Walmart and a more sturdy, comfortable desk I have never had. My laptop I sometimes use but mostly it is my portable workstation and I spend time mirroring things over so that I never find myself needing something. It also games quite nicely and is with me on vacation.

A future housing project is to match the railings with the floor. That, is still sometime to come and there are other things (like installing tile in the kitchen) that have higher priority.) Also, one of my cats kneeds the arm of my chair and has shredded that one. He can't help himself but to kneed and it is my chair arm or my clothing and skin when he is in my lap. Ahh well. Chairs are replaceable. Having lost this particular kittie's brother earlier this year to age, I'll take the chair damage any day.

  1. Odd, the image doesn't show for me (although space and a clickable thingy does), and when clicked on, the image doesn't load.

  2. I'm fairly sure that setup may be more advanced than our CAD system. ;-) lol

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Welcome to my non-technical and outdated but probably still useful guide to boosters.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. …

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…

Will the real player please stand up?

I installed Eve on my Surface the other day. I then remembered why my last laptop, when I was playing Eve, was an Alienware gaming laptop. My Surface, wonderful creature that it is, runs Eve at such a tiny magnification that I squint to see it. I could change my settings and adjust for this. Instead, I'll stick to my desktop and try to remember to log in and see the latest round of changes.

Yet, here I am writing.

Deep in the muzzy field of my brain that has been working almost daily for the last six weeks, random thoughts bubble up. I may not log in and spend my time focusing on Eve as a world, but it hasn't slipped from me. I've picked up an amazing group of friends that I talk to daily and many of them still play enough that I skim the social edges. At times I'm angry that the same social problems exist. At others, I'm fascinating by the process.

Today is a fascinating day because I've been answering e-mails. I still get e-mails occasionally from people who …
