Candy Cane

I was given a Stratios.


I wanted to say thank you. It was from one of my readers who also hangs out in chat and has listened to me sigh for the last six months over my desire to buy a Stratios. I have this plan where I would earn enough LP to buy one. I also have this plan where I will run drone sites and get a Sentient spawn that will drop the disc that I can trade in for one. In reality, I've mostly done other things and let the CSM eat up the time I used to spend making ISK with spaceships.

But I have dreams and one of them was answered by this contract. Happy. Flustered. Shocked. I went through the normal automatic responses where I wanted to reject it. To expensive. I don't deserve it. I should earn my own. But gifts are gifts. I know that I give things to people because I want to. But, eeep!

I think the Stratios is the most beautiful ship in the game. I suspect that some think I am in love with the Rifter hull. While iconic, it is the Jaguar as a ship that I love not the hull itself. When it comes down to the Stratios, the hull amazes me.

I will name him Candy Cane. I love peppermint and the abundance of it is one of the few things I like about the Christmas season.

    1. Nothing worrisome. I gave up on holidays when I was twelve and never looked back. :)

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…
