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

Conflicted

Halycon said it quite well in a comment he left about the skill point trading proposal for skill point changes. He is conflicted in many different ways. So am I. Somedays, I don't want to be open minded. I do not want to see other points of view. I want to not like things and not feel good about them and it be okay. That is something that is denied me for now. I've stated my opinion about the first round of proposals to trade skills. I don't like them. That isn't good enough. I have to answer why. Others do not like it as well. I cannot escape over to their side and be unhappy with them. I am dragged away and challenged about my distaste.  Some of the people I like most think the change is good. Other's think it has little meaning. They want to know why I don't like it. When this was proposed at the CSM summit, I swiveled my chair and asked if they realized that they were undoing the basic structure that characters and game progression worked under. They said th

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

CSM9 - Day 140

The week has been the Summer Summit for CSM9. That did not mean that the world stopped for us. Things in Eve moved forward because we have the Oceanas release coming on the 22nd. CCP Fozzie has released a small interceptor tweak . Interdictors are also being retouched for fine detailing. The thread about it is up. This is not a rebalance where the ships gain complete new roles and identities. This is focused on fine tuning. I have spoken up about the fact that the situation where Titans were being bumped out of POS shields was not acceptable to me. I’ve voiced my disagreement as have other players. CCP Fozzie has posted changes to cyno usage outside of POS force fields . I am not fully happy with this change. I am happy that it will stop the Titan bumping issue. I am not happy with not being able to light cynos on shields. I feel that it will negatively affect tackling ships hugging force fields and I have expressed that. The topic came up in one of our Summit Meetings with CCP Fo
