Stuff Spread

I had to run Chella to Rens the other day. I was building things and Rens happened to have a particular piece at a very good price. When she got there, to my astonishment, there was an Orca sitting in my hangar. And, I found myself staring at this Orca. This Orca in my hangar. It was a while until my lips moved and I asked myself, "Where did this come from?"

It turns out that I purchased that Orca in December. I did it as a favor to someone who needed ISK. I wanted another Orca for a project I was going to do over the winter. Instead, I ran for CSM and that project fell to the wayside and the Orca sat in its hangar under a dust cover until I stumbled upon it again.


My asset list needs cleaning. I used to clean it regularly. But, sometime over the last year or so I've fallen out of the habit. I got more and more into PvP and I just dumped things in stations as I went. That stuff has accumulated and it is not as bad as many others, it is still much, much messier than I'd like.

I don't have hidden billions tucked away in these stations. Mostly, its loot dropped and the occasional ship I've left after a roam. I never roamed back home, alone so I have many abandoned ships. The abandoned ships I don't mind. They become useful when the fleet loses a ship and you can just hand someone a fit out ship to keep the fleet moving. The cluttered stuff bugs me.

Right now I am torn between sending Chella to do pickups and writing cheap courier contracts to see if people pick them up. I would just dump stuff in the nearest high sec station....

Aside: In the middle of writing this I heard Exile curse on coms. It turns out that they had taken a wormhole chain (how we love these new wormholes) and wound up at the other end of an unbookmarked nullsec hole with no prober. I went out to do a rescue, backtracked their path and had the fleet warp to me to bookmark their exit. I then headed home. I love rescue missions.

...or write the contract to the nearest high sec system. Then I could putter about and collect it all. It may be a good  project for these exhausted days when I'm slumped in my chair to tired to participate in much. I don't trust myself to stock the store at those times. After winding up with five thousand small scorch crystals I've become more careful.

  1. Your screen shot has broken me. My slight OCD is screaming in agony.

    1. Agreed. I thought my assets list was messy, but that's even worse.

  4. LOL Mine has never been that bad but it got out of hand as far as I am concerned last year... and I spent a week making the trips, collecting, selling and consolidating down to just the 16 stations I find cover my needs.

    I have stuff at corp HQs of course, and stuff in all the major and minor hubs (always 2 stations, the hub itself and a 'safe' station nearby). My main ship and mod storage is still Amarr for some reason I cannot define... then there are the stations where I have locator agents and at least a BM named "Locator Agent #", I have quite a few of those and all in all that's my stuff... right now I have something like 5 or so stations where L&S dint sell and dropped back into station, but I usually do something about them when we pop a hole nearby.

    All the rest is in the hole and moves around with me... =]

  5. I have stuff in only three stations. I believe in liquid isk, obviously.

    Or I have a problem with cleanliness.

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…
