A Possible New Bonus...

There was a lot of good information coming out of the community for Fanfest this year. I was super pleased at how many blogs, micro blogs, and round table summaries surfaced. At this rate, I'll not have to write my own notes for them at Eve Vegas this October! I can dream at least, eh?

A lot of changes are happening. How do I feel about them? Well, they are going to happen so I'd like to get elbows deep in them to see what they are actually going to do and move on from there. I'm excited for the SiSi update so that I can actually see all of this in action and more Dev blogs and posts better land.

I finally shipped down a medium tower and at some point soon I will downgrade my entire POS process. Right now I am burning fuel as if I hate my wallet. I don't hate my wallet. My POS is just not profitable at all right now.

There is this:


CCP it appears has decided to invest in kitchenware. I dub this the MLS Skillet. I believe it should have a bacon crisping bonus. Along with the Nestor aka the hand blender, I can use a Nyx as a plate and I'm all set to have a meal. However, I do hope each one comes with bandaids for the papercuts I am expecting to see. At least they are interesting. I won't call them pretty and I won't call them ugly. It's kind of how a woman is called handsome when she is striking and not unattractive but not classicaly pretty.

I will probably have to learn missile skills now.

    1. So you can use it in the house in a gourmet kitchen or out at the chuck wagon on the range?

  5. Why are you downgrading your POS? Is this in response to the industry changes or just the usual pre-summer slump?

    I have similarly downgraded, but only because I am struggling to maintain enthusiasm for the current 'interface of clicks' now that I have seen the replacement in the blogs.

    1. It is a large to do research and that's just not profitable.

    1. Naw, Sugar is my main combat account. She has all the support skill just needs the missile flavored ones.

  7. Change of topic just a bit; I was really excited to hear the news regarding the new T2 mining frig and the valuable ore spawns in lowsec. My alts mine in Gulfonodi in Molden Heath - I know that you are very familiar with that area:-) Something tells me that we might be bumping heads later this year Sugar - I'm definitely going to go out in to lowsec (your neck of the woods) to get me some of those tasty ores, and I'm hoping you and your folks won't let me do it unmolested:-) Take care and gl on the CSM...

    1. There are 8 systems with a security status of .1 or .2 in Molden Heath, so you won't even need to wait for the new sites to spawn. Just start mining at a belt :)

    2. Come on down. I'm interested to see how viable this will be.

  8. As someone who does a great deal of BBQ over charcoal (and damn good BBQ at that) I heartily approve this post and this ship model.

  9. Actually, that's not a skillet, it's griddle: http://www.ebay.com/itm/like/331177373497?lpid=82

    Also a Manta Ray, which I think was the intended parallel.

    1. LOL for the picture and let's not be reasonable with all that manta ray stuff.

  10. I initially thought the Barghest looked like an unfriendly ping pong paddle, but I think griddle/skillet is a much better description. It does seem like you should be able to land smaller craft on its back.

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…
