It Should be Skittles

I gave my mother her bag of licorice to her delight. When I purchased it, Sion said, "But you don't like licorice." I said to him, "Correct. I do not. But my mother does. I'd never force my taste onto her and deny her the licorice that will please her."

I somewhat feel that way about the minutes. My days off this week are Wednesday and Thursday and I am going to start doing my write up for the summit this weekend. CCP Leeloo has announced the plans for the minutes. We have a few weeks to get them back to her where she will get them processed internally with a goal to have them released by the end of October.

We had around twenty two meetings over the course of those three days. The minute format as I understand it isn't a transcription of every cough and um but a goal to bring you the topics, the responses, and the questions and answers that came up. My goal is for you to know what we talked about and what the various CSM members said in response. I'd also like to get our side of it done as soon as possible.

I'm not a procrastinator.  To me, the topic of the minutes seems simple enough. Perhaps, I will be incorrect but considering that I can transcribe (if badly for I type in amazing ways) at full speed and did for my personal notes for about half of the sessions I'm not at this point worried about it. It is more of a challenge.

We will see how many I will finish by tomorrow evening.  My goal is three. For tonight, I will get some other things done to clear my mind. Tomorrow, it shall be cups of tea and my ignoring the sound of my own voice.

It is having to listen to myself that reminds me of licorice. I hate the sound of my own voice with a passion. It sounds high pitched and childish to me. But, I'm not listening to my voice because I enjoy doing so. I'm doing it because other people like licorice.

  1. Welcome back. Thank you for all your hard work that you put in for us in Iceland and thank you for all the hard work you continue to do for us. I also do not like licorice.

  2. You can transcribe at full pace?
    In TV we transcribe a lot of interview footage and on average a logger takes 1hr to transcribe verbatim 10mins of speech.
    So that's a hell of a skill!

Taboo Questions

Let us talk contentious things. What about high sec? When will CCP pay attention to high sec and those that cannot spend their time in dangerous space?  This is somewhat how the day started, sparked by a question from an anonymous poster. Speaking about high sec, in general, is one of the hardest things to do. The amount of emotion wrapped around the topic is staggering. There are people who want to stay in high sec and nothing will make them leave. There are people who want no one to stay in high sec and wish to cripple everything about it. There are people in between, but the two extremes are large and emotional in discussion. My belief is simple. If a player wishes to live in high sec, I do not believe that anything will make them leave that is not their own curiosity. I do not believe that we can beat people out of high sec or destroy it until they go to other areas of space. Sometimes, I think we forget that every player has the option to not log back in. We want them to log

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

And back again

My very slow wormhole adventure continues almost as slowly as I am terminating my island in Animal Crossing.  My class 3 wormhole was not where I wanted to be. I was looking for a class 1 or 2 wormhole. I dropped my probes and with much less confusion scanned another wormhole. I remembered to dscan and collect my probes as I warped to the wormhole. I even remembered to drop a bookmark, wormholes being such good bookmark locations later. My wormhole told me it was a route into low sec. I tilted my head. How circular do our adventures go. Today might be the day to die and that too is okay. That mantra dances in the back of my head these days. Even if someone mocks me, what does that matter? Fattening someone's killboard is their issue not mine. So I jumped through and found myself in Efa in Khanid, tucked on the edge of high sec and null sec. What an interesting little system.  Several connections to high sec. A connection to null sec. This must be quite the traffic system.    I am f
