CSM: Running for Office: Week Four

This was a week of waiting, making for a short post!

No official election rules are posted yet. I’ll admit that I am itching with anticipation. We have six weeks to Fanfest. People who are following the election cycle are very interested in the voting process. Some have voted before and some have not. This interest in the voting is good.

This week has held more interest on my forum thread. Ripard Teg laid out some questions to some candidates. I wound up writing a reply and a longer blog post in response. Questions directed to the CSM come in all forms and flavors. Questions such as Ripard’s, that focus on aspects of morality and culture are fascinating. It is also an understandable question to ask someone who is stepping forward to represent the community.

I will admit that I’m having fun meeting people. I’m trying to sync up with a few groups and my channel gets a steady trickle of people who want to check me out. It has lead to a lot of interesting conversations and debates about Eve and some fantastic recipe ideas for dinner. I’m a firm believer that chat is about chat and I like to cook. It turns out that a lot of other Eve players do as well so we share our menus and come up with suggestions. It has a side effect of relaxing some who venture in and don’t want to step into a fitting discussion. I’m not scary and I’d never send someone away who might have my next creative meal idea just waiting for me. Dinner PvP is a go!

Next week is both my interview with Cap Stable and the VA/MD/DC meetup. I’m also still waiting for the final word to trickle down about Eve Vegas.

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Welcome to my non-technical and outdated but probably still useful guide to boosters.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

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 …

Busy, busy, busy

I find that it is still easy to write about Eve. However, I've not been playing Eve. I spent most of the last few weeks finishing up my crochet project. It was a birthday present for my best friend. Since someone expressed interest in it, here it is.




It is displayed on a king size bed. I made it as a birthday present for my best friend. We've had twenty years of friendship. I met her online when I was a teenager. Our birthdays are two weeks apart so I celebrated mine by making her something. I'm not one to celebrate birthdays but now and then I try to pull myself to a social norm and do something special for the people I love.

I spent a long time fighting to be myself. I finally discovered a balance in this last handful of years. It is still a struggle but for some reason, in my late thirties, understanding is moving briskly along. With that understanding comes comfort. I don't have to fight about and for things like I used to. I don't have to make anyone accept me…
