The Song of Stuff

I am going to be bluntly honest.

I am one of those people who are fond of their stuff.

I'm not ashamed.

I like it.

It's mine.

I have most of my income tied up in my assets. I believe that is familiar for the bulk of Eve. A few weeks ago, Silver was liquidating assets and commenting that he finds it pleasant. I looked at my asset list, something that is becoming mildly horrifying and full of lag and disagreed.

On Thursday, I moved back to Isto a few days before the official move op. I knew that I would be working the weekend. With the move planned, roughly, for Saturday the chances of it being done during my work hours where quite high. I didn't want to spend the evening trying to catch cyno chains during one of the games busiest days. I packed up my stuff, solicited Kaeda for a cyno in Isto. With the death of cynos and the time to have small funerals over their wrecks it took about an hour to empty Nalvula.

Sugar needs to improve her cyno skills. It was a pain getting her set up to run the cyno. She has the skill. All of my in space characters do. But, she needs cyno to four.  It is at one. I am somewhat embarrassed for an unknown reason. Still, it took three trips to get me home. It took five to head out. I came back with a few things I didn't leave with (Talos and Prophecy). I also came back with many fewer Jaguars than I left with. I was down to my last one.

Now I am back home with all of my stuff. My stuff does not include spare implants. I will need to buy a new set due to a particular hot drop my first weekend in Nalvula. I still have plenty of LP and will pick up a set as soon as I remember. Of course, it is not optimal. I'll do it anyway. At the rate of my forum responses, that may not be till Monday. Even after being gone for a month, somehow my Isto hangar for Sugar has climbed in value. It is around 12 billion in hulls now. I swear I am losing them faster than I am acquiring them but I am starting to wonder. Plus, Silver and Altaen and their praise for liquidation has made me start to consider thinning out my hulls.

I made a lot of ships for Odyssey. Battleships were going to gain a bump in mineral cost. i wanted to avoid that and felt clever by spending a bit of time and ISK building myself a set of battleships I was interested in. Fast forward eight months and I have undocked a battleship around six times. Plus their warp speed has made the boys give up Battleship Sundays.

Maybe its time to ship some of them off to a trade hub. I did sell one to Ren, but I don't need nine Armageddons and three Apocs and this random stack of Megathrons. Well, I'll keep the Megas and the Tempests but thin down the rest of the herd.

I also have a Rawrcat fleet to plan. It would be a good transference of ISK from battleships to Jaguars.

Additional: On Friday, amid everything else, I did a interview with Med Lacroix. It's my first time being interviewed but he held my hand and we chatted about PvE and Newbies. It's fifty minutes of my rambling (while trying not to cough and often failing). Being interviewed is pretty nerve wrecking, I will admit. For those that wish to listen:

P.S. In this interview there is a discussion about "stuff after the tutorial missions". When talking I was just dredging around my brain and I didn't give proper credit to Chirality Tisteloin because we had that discussion together.

  4. I listened to the interview. You did not sound flustered, which is good. Nor did I notice any coughing. You were cogent pretty much all of the time. I did not notice any substantial rambling. You uptalked too much for my taste, but then I am a language Nazi and any uptalking rubs me wrong. In general, you did great.

    One thing I hope you are clear on, is that the role of the CSM is not in any sense legislative. It's an advisory panel with (as far as I can tell) very little actual influence on CCP. The whole interview was suffused with the general idea that the CSM will go unto CCP and tell them what to do, and that they'll listen. This is not how it works. A lot of that is the interviewer's fault. And I suppose promising the moon may be necessary in democratic politics. Still, as a realistic voter, I would have appreciated it if you'd made clear to the guy that while you think that CCP should make changes X, Y, and Z, for the most part that's not what the CSM does.

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
