Thankfully, Nothing is Happening

"Sugar, you are so serious!"

I've been accused of said seriousness a few times in the last week. It is a true thing. I am serious. I take questions serious. I take promises seriously. I play serious internet spaceships, what can I say? I'm a pretty serious person.

I am also a very tired person. I realized that my mind was a bit empty of what I'd consider interesting enough topics to write about. I've spent the bulk of the week very focused and engaged. I'm a little low in the ways of energy. It is something that I find amusing. I'm to tired of think of new things. I'm still processing to many other things in the back of my mind.

I pull my writing from my day to day experiences. When ones week is consumed by only one thing that tends to limit everything else. Somewhere under there, what else have I been doing? I know I was busy but was I productively busy? Does it matter? Probably not. Mostly, now, I'm curled up and unwinding.

In other, random things. My Eve Uni talk is tomorrow instead of Sunday. I mixed my dates up a bit but I figure it doesn't really matter. Also, my Eve Vegas stuff is all together. They have started to announce prizes from the drawings as well as the in game items that come along with a ticket or the stream.


I will never fly it. It will sit in a hangar somewhere (probably Jita) and be beautiful forever.

  1. This week was surely long for you CSM folks. But hey, it ended up with a huge kill, so the effort was well spent.

  3. So if that shit somer was doing was rmt are u guys going after tmc next? Paying people to write articles and getting ad revenue is just as much rmt as buying a plex off ppl for 50mil over jita.

    1. Illicit (that is, against the EULA and CCP will come after you) RMT occurs when person A pays person B money and person B pays person A ISK. Somer had a bit of extra complexity, but finally, he was getting money and the person who sent him money got ISK.

      TMC is paying person C in ISK to write about EVE, then making money off ad impressions made by persons D, E, F and G who come to read the writing. There's no quid pro quo there. There is a technical form of RMT, in that writing has real world value, but CCP has long tolerated ISK for content. Cold, hard cash has an observable corrupting influence on games. Writers and artists have an observable beneficial effect.

      In other words, don't hold your breath.

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 that t…

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…

Nothing and Everything Changes

I can mark the passage of time from Eve with Intuition's age. He turned four last month. Today, Corbexx sent me a chat on Steam and we spent hours chattering about this and that as if it was yesterday. That is friendship.

One of the things we noticed is that our NDA is about to expire. That and the leavings of several people left us gossiping up a storm. The NDA was never a good NDA but we chose to respect the spirit of it even if the letter of it had the strength of  wet tissue paper.

Life is fine. The husband got a promotion at the start of the year. I am up for one at the end of the month that will be a fascinating life change. We also got our rental property goals started. For any that wonder how much of a basement dweller I actually am. My husband has the entire basement of the new house.

I think of Eve quite often. For one, I have it in my reddit feed. I mostly skim the titles and skip the topics. The general mood has not changed even if the people saying it has.

I saw that …
