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?
[20:12:58] 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.

Conflicted

Halycon said it quite well in a comment he left about the skill point trading proposal for skill point changes. He is conflicted in many different ways. So am I. Somedays, I don't want to be open minded. I do not want to see other points of view. I want to not like things and not feel good about them and it be okay. That is something that is denied me for now. I've stated my opinion about the first round of proposals to trade skills. I don't like them. That isn't good enough. I have to answer why. Others do not like it as well. I cannot escape over to their side and be unhappy with them. I am dragged away and challenged about my distaste.  Some of the people I like most think the change is good. Other's think it has little meaning. They want to know why I don't like it. When this was proposed at the CSM summit, I swiveled my chair and asked if they realized that they were undoing the basic structure that characters and game progression worked under. They said th

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

CSM9 - Day 140

The week has been the Summer Summit for CSM9. That did not mean that the world stopped for us. Things in Eve moved forward because we have the Oceanas release coming on the 22nd. CCP Fozzie has released a small interceptor tweak . Interdictors are also being retouched for fine detailing. The thread about it is up. This is not a rebalance where the ships gain complete new roles and identities. This is focused on fine tuning. I have spoken up about the fact that the situation where Titans were being bumped out of POS shields was not acceptable to me. I’ve voiced my disagreement as have other players. CCP Fozzie has posted changes to cyno usage outside of POS force fields . I am not fully happy with this change. I am happy that it will stop the Titan bumping issue. I am not happy with not being able to light cynos on shields. I feel that it will negatively affect tackling ships hugging force fields and I have expressed that. The topic came up in one of our Summit Meetings with CCP Fo
