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.

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…

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…

My Skill Queue went empty

The thing I miss most is having mail. When I log in I often check that line to see if I have mail. Unfortunately, I do not. I am not surprised. There is no reason for me to have mail. Yet, I do miss it.
In some ways having regular eve-mail was the moment that I was most connected. I had people to talk with and engage in. It was the closest I've ever been to having a normal social level that I was comfortable with. This shows you how introverted I am that eve-mail filled up my social meter. 
I log in and look around. Normally, I am looking for the people that I do not have other social contacts with. It is very, very easy to lose those relationships. The binding glue of the game has dissolved and friendship, as an adult, can take work. Even in this information time. Eve gave me things to talk about. Without it, I remember that I don't talk very much. Unless it is about dogs and driving my co-workers crazy when people come to me for advice they won't follow.
Since I logged …
