Hello Libluini

I have been rather muddled of head and mind for the last few days. The sov blogs are now out so the occupation of thought should be easy to understand. However, as I got dressed for work I remembered someone and it made me think the oddest thought that I will probably write later tonight. Maybe I will write something about the sov blogs. We will see.

Probably. Maybe.

But this is a hello to Libluini. They have been reading my blog all day, it seems from the start or near start and leaving comments every so often. During a twelve hour work day it has made me smile more than once to see the comments trickle into my mail when I check it from time to time through the day. I love everyone's comments but I've been watching Libluini working through the one thousand four hundred and fifty-six posts that compose this blog's three years.

So! I wanted to say hello to Libluini and say thank you for the comments. I've enjoyed them. On twitter I comments and Wilhelm Arcturus he of the Ancient Gaming Noob responded.



It is a very true thing. I think that commentors are almost a holy grail for me. Having people engage with me is wonderful and improves my writing. Not everyone agrees with me. not everyone agrees with how I string my words together.  But I appreciate the engagement. I appreciate the thought. It gives me other things to write about. It opens me up to ideas that I would not have had and areas of Eve that I do not know.

And it is an absolutely decadent pleasure to know what you have written has been read.

Thank you all.

  1. In a similar vein, I have recently begun reading you after being vote matched with you for the CSM and being interested in your platform. Good luck in the race and you have my first vote.

  2. I think I went back and read all of your posts back when I first started playing last year. Your blog is a big reason why I am still in the game. Your experiences showed me how many paths there are in EVE and opened up new avenues of play for me. From a person that does trade and industry in a mix of low and high sec you are first on my ballot. I hope to see more of your great work in the coming CSM term.

  3. Uh, thanks. Unexpected, but welcome.

    Now I feel bad because I started using the account of my blog directly when dropping comments, instead of the name I'm using the most + a stealthy link to the blog. Turns out Libluini is lazy.

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…

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…

My Skill Queue went empty

The thing I miss most is having mail. When I log in I often check that line to see if I have mail. Unfortunately, I do not. I am not surprised. There is no reason for me to have mail. Yet, I do miss it.
In some ways having regular eve-mail was the moment that I was most connected. I had people to talk with and engage in. It was the closest I've ever been to having a normal social level that I was comfortable with. This shows you how introverted I am that eve-mail filled up my social meter. 
I log in and look around. Normally, I am looking for the people that I do not have other social contacts with. It is very, very easy to lose those relationships. The binding glue of the game has dissolved and friendship, as an adult, can take work. Even in this information time. Eve gave me things to talk about. Without it, I remember that I don't talk very much. Unless it is about dogs and driving my co-workers crazy when people come to me for advice they won't follow.
Since I logged …
