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. They're saying the artist that came up with this should fry.

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

    2. Hmmmm... striking and utilitarian huh? Kinda like this?

  3. Strap a Dramiel to a Thorax and you've got yourself a fork.

  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.

  6. The battleship looks more like a carrier than our actual carriers.

    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.

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…

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…

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…
