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.

[19:57:08] Haibisukasu > uh huh
[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?
[20:12:58] xxxx > You there?
[20:13:22] Haibisukasu > yes
[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.

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. …

Will the real player please stand up?

I installed Eve on my Surface the other day. I then remembered why my last laptop, when I was playing Eve, was an Alienware gaming laptop. My Surface, wonderful creature that it is, runs Eve at such a tiny magnification that I squint to see it. I could change my settings and adjust for this. Instead, I'll stick to my desktop and try to remember to log in and see the latest round of changes.

Yet, here I am writing.

Deep in the muzzy field of my brain that has been working almost daily for the last six weeks, random thoughts bubble up. I may not log in and spend my time focusing on Eve as a world, but it hasn't slipped from me. I've picked up an amazing group of friends that I talk to daily and many of them still play enough that I skim the social edges. At times I'm angry that the same social problems exist. At others, I'm fascinating by the process.

Today is a fascinating day because I've been answering e-mails. I still get e-mails occasionally from people who …

Memoirs - Part One: Virtual Worlds

Virtual Realities: Memoirs of an internet spaceship politician by Sugar Kyle CSM9, CSMX
This is where it really started. The day I lost my mind.

I never told anyone how long I had been debating my run for the ninth CSM. The thought started to circle in the back of my thoughts in November. I was back home after a sucessful Eve Vegas. I had met a few people. My notes from the presentations and round tables had gone over very well. I felt useful, comfortable, and excited that I was a member of the community. I belonged and I cared about this thing that I belonged to. That thing was the community of Eve Online.
Eve Vegas of 2013 was when I found out that a conversation I had been fortunate enough to have with CCP Masterplan at Fanfest of that same year, had sparked enough interest to gain developer attention. At Eve Vegas I learned that they would be working on ideas based off of the premise that I had presented. Only days later, a developer posted to the Offical Eve Online forums about i…
