A Bit Frazzled

I started writing this a week ago when my head was buzzing. It was a very busy weekend at work and it was followed by a busy week at work and a busy weekend at work. Eve has also been crazy. However, today is a day off and I found myself half awake and half in a daze staring at my Jita alt as I slowly started to collect the items needed to restock Sujarento.

"Sugar, is all you do is market stuff?"

Kinda, at the moment. The rest of what I have been doing for the last three months has been CSM stuff. A lot of that has been done or released and I can change my stride a bit. While it is not terribly exciting on the blog posting side it is very absorbing of free time. Even my capital production has slowed down and truly, I am out of sorts when it comes to my schedule in game, again.

Foo has published his market spreadsheet blog for those that understand or wish to understand more about spreadsheets and how to use them to tell you stuff. It is all voodoo magic to me.

Susan Black has also had a relapse into her market habits. It is interesting seeing her opinion about my market activities in Sujarento. It is also nice to know I am not crazy and that others are stocking some items. It makes me a bit excited. Maybe my somewhat obscure dream of people having enough motivation to improve their game environment will happen or at least move forward a little bit.

At the moment I'm getting my Fanfest preparation together. I'm going to try to do a light cosplay. I'm not aiming for rewards just some fun. It leaves the amusing side effect that some people may meet me outside of my normal 'looks' and dressing habits. It seems as if it will be fun and it has caught my passing fancy so I shall give it a go. My jacket should arrive today and I'm about to head out to the store to get some things to upgrade it. I'll post the progress over the next few days and we can chart if it is a success or failure.

Oh yes... if anyone was wondering how the war with the kitty affection at bedtime is going, this is what I walked into last night. And on my side of the bed. It is a king sized bed. Argh! I'm holding out! I got to stay strong.

  1. It could be worse yesterday I came home from work. I laid down on the couch for a brief nap, and before I knew what had happen I had been joined by my wife and 50 lb dog. It's not a big couch...

    1. Oh I haven't posted pictures of the Doberman yet and what the two of them do to the space available on a king size bed yet.

Sugar’s Non-Technical Guide to Making Boosters

Welcome to my non-technical and outdated but probably still useful guide to boosters.  There have been changes to how things are built in Eve. This was the old POS code before the introduction of new structures in 2016.   This is just a walk through on my wobbling path of booster production.  It took me half a dozen different documents to figure out what I needed to do to make these mythical things.  It is what I do.  It may not be perfect but it works.

This is pirate focused industry.
This guide brought to you by Lain asking me to write it after I tried to explain it in chat.

Why make boosters? Because drugs are good.  Really they are performance enhancers and performance enhancers can give someone that extra edge in PvP.  It was also because my boys used them and when they ran low they often ran out, I could be their supplier.  They would no longer hoard their drugs due to the length of time it takes to get fresh product.. The thought of being a drug kingpin was also very appealing. …

Memoirs - Part One: Virtual Worlds

Virtual Realities: Memoirs of an internet spaceship politician by Sugar Kyle CSM9, CSMX
This is where it really started. The day I lost my mind.

I never told anyone how long I had been debating my run for the ninth CSM. The thought started to circle in the back of my thoughts in November. I was back home after a sucessful Eve Vegas. I had met a few people. My notes from the presentations and round tables had gone over very well. I felt useful, comfortable, and excited that I was a member of the community. I belonged and I cared about this thing that I belonged to. That thing was the community of Eve Online.
Eve Vegas of 2013 was when I found out that a conversation I had been fortunate enough to have with CCP Masterplan at Fanfest of that same year, had sparked enough interest to gain developer attention. At Eve Vegas I learned that they would be working on ideas based off of the premise that I had presented. Only days later, a developer posted to the Offical Eve Online forums about i…

CSM: Running for Office: Week Six

Nine days untill  the polls open.

It is amazing how much effort can go into crafting thirteen hundred characters. When I first looked at my CSM application I thought that it would be easy to write the official words. Of course it was not. The limit was the largest hurdle. I had so much to say and so few words to say it in. But, I eventually worked through it and submitted everything last Sunday evening. I sent off my passport at the same time and now it is just a short, but long wait.

Tomorrow is the final day of application submissions. Then, on the 3rd, we should find out who actually submitted their applications and passports and passed their background checks. The polls open the following Tuesday. I’ve checked my submission a few times. If I try to fill out the form with Sugar again it tells me that she has already submitted one. I sent my e-mail to the correct place. How I wish for a confirmation email to stare at. For now, i just fret. When I started the run I was worried about …
