Summer in Iceland - Day Four

Steve and I had Sinful Pleasure and when we offered to Corbexx he is all, "No. I'll watch."


Up at seven thirty again and out to walk to the CCP office by eight thirty. It was not bacon and eggs for breakfast. But a cold sandwich was fine anyway.

We started at nine. The first session was the low session. I went in nervous but I had my list. We also had the null sec sessions today of which some tweets may be have been seen. That was a long session and heading to lunch was nice.

Lunch was a meat thing with potatos. And then back to meetings the patented open window helped with freshness and air movement. My notes are extensive and while the days are long I was burning with energy.

We had some CSM stuff st the end of the day and around 0715 we staggered off to dinner. It has been raining lightly but I was able to get a picture of the boat in the dry dock.

It is silly to not try different places in the city like this. That is how I indulged in Sinful Pleasure.

Then off to meet up in what has been our latest night so far. Null sec discussion is still ongoing where thoughts and opinions are discussed and I took the time to write as I listen. Do not confuse that with decisions made but learning how CCP sees things and sharing how we see or don't see the same things is good, even if it is now one in the morning.

The closest to drunken revelry we have had is Ali almost falling off her stool and launching it into a young lady.

I look forward to the minutes so far. I'm in day two and very happy. Day three is coming and hopefully it will be as interesting and exciting.

And a flood of Scottish Devs just came in who have been at another bar watching the news. I'm going to stick to a cell phone post so that I can go to bed when I get back. Sorry for the typos.

  1. Forget the typos you're doing great. Your comment about "Lunch was a meat thing" made me laugh my ass off. When in I was in the Navy we called it "Mystery meat."

    1. Mystery meat with plenty of salt peter, a dietary staple in the military.

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…

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…
