TCS: 13 Days of Neglect

I get to see what neglect looks like for TCS. I opened Eve Mentat and found, to my shock that it had been thirteen days since I last updated it. I thought back, wondering how it had been so long and I remembered that my days before the Summit Week were composed of working on my document and going to work.

Oh.

I felt somewhat horrified, ashamed, and tired. This would be the longest stretch that I had neglected TCS. It was for good reason and valid reason. I nevertheless stared at the updating data with a bit of fret.

Thirty two expired orders. Forty three fulfilled orders. About five billion liquid waiting to be restocked. Not so bad. In some ways I have guilt over not keeping the profit rolling. I'm a bit ashamed that I've let so much flounder around. I also know that I don't have the time to put it back into perfect orders.

It is probably good that I am not a perfectionist.

Sujarento is not as densely populated with items compared to Bosena. When I refreshed I saw that it was also sitting at a two week point and that its had sixty one fulfilled orders. It made me chuckle in an overwhelmed tearful type of way. "People won't buy from Snuff's home station," I had been told.

Seems that they will.

So far, I have managed to get a chunk of Bosena back up and rolling. I see that I have a lot of competition on the market these days. I'm both pleased and irritated. The irritation is nothing more then selfishness and my sense of 'mine'. At the end of the day it is good that people are still getting what they need. I shored TCS back up and went to go work on Sujarento for a bit.

It is going to take me a while to get the stores back to where they need to go. Then, I will be off to Eve Vegas and I'm sure they will suffer from that as well. The good news is that my Minute writing is going well. I am on my fifth session!

  1. It's often surprising how much stuff actually sells when you just let it sit without updating anything for a week or two.

    Sometimes it's even more surprising *where it sold.

    1. Yes but I can also see things slow down too. Bosena is being stocked by others. It is not a bad thing.

  2. You can always install evernus, turn on auto updates with email notifications and respond only when you feel enough merchandise has moved. Check out http://evernus.com

  3. Sugar I really love your blog and I appreciate your articles, however, I would like to make this blog a one stop shopping site with links to some of the more popular Eve news sites - I notice that you don't have any linked here. For that reason I still visit Ripard Tegs blog - just for the links. I promise that if you'll link some of those sites here I'll make your blog my home page:-) Keep up the good work!!

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 …
