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.

Will the real player please stand up?

I installed Eve on my Surface the other day. I then remembered why my last laptop, when I was playing Eve, was an Alienware gaming laptop. My Surface, wonderful creature that it is, runs Eve at such a tiny magnification that I squint to see it. I could change my settings and adjust for this. Instead, I'll stick to my desktop and try to remember to log in and see the latest round of changes.

Yet, here I am writing.

Deep in the muzzy field of my brain that has been working almost daily for the last six weeks, random thoughts bubble up. I may not log in and spend my time focusing on Eve as a world, but it hasn't slipped from me. I've picked up an amazing group of friends that I talk to daily and many of them still play enough that I skim the social edges. At times I'm angry that the same social problems exist. At others, I'm fascinating by the process.

Today is a fascinating day because I've been answering e-mails. I still get e-mails occasionally from people who …

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…

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…
