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.

Passion is so circular

I should dust the blog and delete the spam to leaks in through googles not so bad filters.

I log in from time to time to check my mail and see some of my friends. But, of lat I've commented on a few things in r/eve and it makes me think. Not of the impassioned things that I once thought about as I played the game but of the passions of the game.

I have the gift of several eve players are parts of my life. And we talk, but rarely about Eve. Most of them have left to some extent or another but the relationship that we gained is still strong. I do not hate Eve but I am still exhausted with Eve, even now when I am so far out. It seems to be CSM summit time and the anger and race that sits atop everything related to the game is still there.

It is interesting in its exhaustive existence. The passion is there and the player reaction continues to go full circle. Some things are still said the same way over, and over, and over again. Is it love? Is it hate? Or is it just stimulation that i…

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…
