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Welcome to my non-technical and outdated but probably still useful guide to boosters.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

Have you done your Eve Vegas Survey?

I did attend Eve Vegas to the shock of many. I'd already paid for it and allotted the time. It seemed that I should go.


I went to the Grand Canyon and Hoover as well. This is not the space to discuss those amazing places or my new Camera.

Eve Vegas was a bit harder for me to go to then I expected. I've detached from Eve for the most part these past months. It is very easy to be angry, frustrated, and bitter about the past that I lived on. The game, its development, and the players move on while I find myself emotionally stuck. That emotional stickiness does not need to be given to everyone else. Part of experiencing it was shielding people from it. But, as I accepted my items and stared down the poor gentleman that tried to put a wristband around my wrist, I realized that I wasn't in as good of a place as I had hoped to be.

That is where the Survey comes in. There are a few things that I could say and did say. A few of the questions made me want to say a bit more.

One was …

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 …
