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

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…

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 of A…

The Charm of the Familar

With a few picked up a shifts at work due to the holidays. I pondered logging in but I didn't have the energy to do so. Being able to say no to logging in is pleasant. Just as my youngest puppy interrupts me every fifteen minutes to pee, going to sleep instead of staying up is also pleasant. I had a lot of short slept nights when I was active in a corporation.

My next plan has been to learn how to scan again. The new map is in and I need to refresh my scanning skills. My hold is full of probes. My ship appears to be reasonably set up. I remembered how to hit my F key to cloak. In fact, I hit it a bit to fast. I need to get the ebb and flow of the tic back down.

I am also rusty in my paranoia. I idly switch to another window to research breadbowls and the soup I want to make later. Then I remember I am sitting, decloaked, off of a gate somewhere. Whoops. I did figure out a breadbowl recipe and soup as well.

The question was where do I relearn to scan? I need somewhere off the beate…
