Offical Candidate for CSM9

I just received my e-mail from CCP saying that I qualified to become an official candidate for CSM9. One hurdle jumped and a few more on the path. I think I can keep jumping just fine.

New blog layout to celebrate.

P.S. I received a note that the new blog layout was not liked. I'm more than happy to tweak and things like colors and shades being to much or not enough are important for reading. I do like changing it around. It is the artsy in me. I'm happy to accept feedback about it to a reasonable extent. :)


  1. I'll be a bit of a one-issue voter, and for whatever it's worth, you passed my hurdle, too. You will have all my votes and my good wishes for success.

  2. Huzza!

    I'm not done with my voting list, but you are in the top 3 :)

    1. Thank you, closer to the top is more better!

  3. A friend of mine told me to go read your CSM thread, and I'm so glad I did. You've got all three of my votes. I really hope you make it!

    1. Thank you! Questions or thoughts or whatever I'm happy to chat :) If you like podcasts I have interviews done too :)

  4. Oh no! My favorite blog looks different, I can't handle change. *Crawls into a corner to shake vehemently*

    1. Oh no hugs! Think of it like me dying my hair! Just something new! Curls?

  5. Did I go to the right blog?! *double checks her bookmark*

    I'm glad you passed muster and I'll definitely have you on my ballot! Maybe once I get out of the stupid hospital and to a computer that can actually run EVE I'll drop by your chat room! I keep meaning too. :)

  6. Congrats on the officialness of your candidacy. I like the new layout, ignore the haters. :) // Abavus

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…

TCS: Sugar's Non-Technical Guide to Her Low Sec Market

Gevlon shocked me by featuring my store in his blog, yesterday. My entire project has been something I mostly scraped together and have bumbled through to the best of my ability and sense. Early on, I started a naming dynamic to my posts so that people could avoid the blogs about the store. These blogs are titled TCS. Also, if you search for TCS those particular blogs are available.

I decided to create a more cohesive naming strategy because someone said, “I don’t know how interested your readers will be in your market posts.” I didn’t either. I wasn't going to not write them because I write about whatever interests me. It seemed that a naming convention would correct the situation. However, I’ve started to receive a trickle of eve-mail and e-mail about what I am doing. Sometimes people ask me for advice on how to approach their own low sec market or what they should pick and choose or just how to pick and choose.

Cheradenine Harper asked me about moving forward into the wider mark…

Passion is so circular

I should dust the blog and delete the spam to leaks in through googles not so bad filters.

I log in from time to time to check my mail and see some of my friends. But, of lat I've commented on a few things in r/eve and it makes me think. Not of the impassioned things that I once thought about as I played the game but of the passions of the game.

I have the gift of several eve players are parts of my life. And we talk, but rarely about Eve. Most of them have left to some extent or another but the relationship that we gained is still strong. I do not hate Eve but I am still exhausted with Eve, even now when I am so far out. It seems to be CSM summit time and the anger and race that sits atop everything related to the game is still there.

It is interesting in its exhaustive existence. The passion is there and the player reaction continues to go full circle. Some things are still said the same way over, and over, and over again. Is it love? Is it hate? Or is it just stimulation that i…
