Open Q&A with Sugar Kyle: June 9th at 1500 & 2200

My Eve University chat is confirmed for Sunday. I decided to run it at 1500 and again at  2200. Immediately I was asked if I plan to talk for four hours. No. It is two one hour sessions. The goals to cover time zones. I know that I am always irritated that everything happens outside of my time zone. My goal is to see how well attended these are and go from there.

Here is the link to the details! Neville wrote a much better summary than I did.

If you want to attend make sure you have downloaded mumble and set it up. Directions are here. It is open so no log in and API checks and all of that stuff.

Somehow this qualifies me as a guest lecturer! Poor Eve Uni.

The goal of said talk is really just to be accessible about the CSM. We can talk Kronos. We can talk about me. We can talk about low sec. We can talk about markets. We can talk about whatever. I want to create an open floor question and answer. One of the negatives to pod casts or Eve radio is that people may listen but they don't feel as if they get to personally engage their CSM representative. Hopefully this will help with that. Sunday will be the trial run for what I hope to do monthly.

Why Eve Uni coms? For one Eve Uni has the coms to support a lot of people. For another they are very neutral. Their format also allows people to talk to me if they don't want to type questions or type questions if they don't want to talk.

I want to be reachable. Talking isn't my focus like it is for the naturally gifted like Mike and Corbexx who hop onto anyone's podcast and go. My comfort is with my writing. How ever I promised that I would push myself outside of my comfort zone and reach out to people.

Hopefully this works!

I'm more than happy to do these on week days as well. Feedback when it comes to times and where in the week they fall would be appreciated. I decided to start with Sunday because it was safe being a weekend day. As always, if you don't tell me what you want I can't try to make it happen.

  1. Your "link to the details" opens a picture of a fitting for a Badger. Just FYI.

    1. That should fix it. The badger details are another post I'll write this week. :)

  2. So for people who can't find your EVE bio and chat channel.

    1. Some people want face time? Or voice time? Hearing me say what I type may work better for them.

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Welcome to my non-technical and outdated but probably still useful guide to boosters.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. …

CSM: Running for Office: Week Six

Nine days untill  the polls open.

It is amazing how much effort can go into crafting thirteen hundred characters. When I first looked at my CSM application I thought that it would be easy to write the official words. Of course it was not. The limit was the largest hurdle. I had so much to say and so few words to say it in. But, I eventually worked through it and submitted everything last Sunday evening. I sent off my passport at the same time and now it is just a short, but long wait.

Tomorrow is the final day of application submissions. Then, on the 3rd, we should find out who actually submitted their applications and passports and passed their background checks. The polls open the following Tuesday. I’ve checked my submission a few times. If I try to fill out the form with Sugar again it tells me that she has already submitted one. I sent my e-mail to the correct place. How I wish for a confirmation email to stare at. For now, i just fret. When I started the run I was worried about …

Busy, busy, busy

I find that it is still easy to write about Eve. However, I've not been playing Eve. I spent most of the last few weeks finishing up my crochet project. It was a birthday present for my best friend. Since someone expressed interest in it, here it is.




It is displayed on a king size bed. I made it as a birthday present for my best friend. We've had twenty years of friendship. I met her online when I was a teenager. Our birthdays are two weeks apart so I celebrated mine by making her something. I'm not one to celebrate birthdays but now and then I try to pull myself to a social norm and do something special for the people I love.

I spent a long time fighting to be myself. I finally discovered a balance in this last handful of years. It is still a struggle but for some reason, in my late thirties, understanding is moving briskly along. With that understanding comes comfort. I don't have to fight about and for things like I used to. I don't have to make anyone accept me…
