A Broken Contract - Part Two

I am probably supposed to wait till tomorrow to continue these posts and stretch it out and such to build suspension and readership. However, that's never been my style.

After I wrote A Broken Contract - Part One I went and ran errands. When I returned I discovered that my courier had finally answered my Eve Mail.

The ships are going to be sitting in Teonusude still in your ship hangar. I advise you to cancel the contract and recreate it with the ships included. Make sure to check all the little boxes or just do it from the asset window so that you can shift+click all of the items on the station. I assume you do not stage out of Teon and you will not need to sort your personal assets.

Just cancelled the contract.. Hoping your merch show up here  
In the end the ships did show up here. Here was Jita where he had unpacked and done whatever he had done. He convoed me again.

[19:58:07] xxxx > Hey, you were right, they are sitting in Jita. Please let me go get them and deliver them to you...that's the least I can do.. I feel really bad what happened. Is that ok?
[19:58:24] Haibisukasu > yup
[19:58:45] Haibisukasu > I can't refund you until the courier is overdue and I can cancel it
[19:59:40] xxxx > Thanks. I have another Corp mate there and he can bring it out.. Give me a few mininutes... Thanks.  And I hope I get a chance to work for you again.
[19:59:59] xxxx > ok
[20:02:15] Haibisukasu > cool
[20:04:49] xxxx > I already put the collateral of 1 bill isk on the other contract correct?

[20:13:26] Haibisukasu > was in another window
[20:13:34] Haibisukasu > yes
[20:13:43] Haibisukasu > I suggest you cancel it and rebuild it when all items are avilable
[20:14:08] xxxx > just wanted to know if you still have the other contract for the collateral?
[20:14:23] xxxx > ok
[20:16:14] xxxx > contact you when everything is completed
I happily admit I'm semi-AFK. I don't even know why I still have Habi logged in. This guy logs in and logs out. I still find the entire thing strange. I'm not accepting a contract that is not completed and I can't figure out why this is hard. It does not have the polish of a scam but it just seems strange.

I'm a bit irritated. TCS is not stocked and that was one of my goals. I like to do it earlier in the day. Thankfully, the repair technician appears and my air conditioning is being fixed.

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…
