Double Take

I found myself so surprised at what I saw that I almost forgot tot take a screen shot.


A Bowhead in the flesh. The first time I passed it as my Viator landed on the gate I was like, "What is that?" Slowly, my mind caught up to me and I squealed and tried to flip screens fast enough to nab a screenshot but I was to late and jumped.

My mind caught up with me and I realized that it was auto-piloting. Quickly, I cloaked on the other side and went to look at it when it came through. It spawned 38k off of me but 'look at' did not work when I was cloaked. Huh. I don't remember that. I will test it.

Then it warped. I warped to. But, I was in a Viator and landed before it. Meh. The gate was clear and I figured I could keep and eye out for trouble and wait for it to arrive. As I did so I noticed a fleet of military rank symbols land on the gate.


A fleet of Golem landed and started to jump through. Huh. I have no idea what they are for but there they were. So, I took their picture too. Then I waited for the Bowhead to land and this time look at worked because I wasn't cloaked (I guess?) and I got the above picture.

The things that ones sees in high sec. What a crazy place.

  1. With that sort of flotilla, it would be the immigration of Incursion pilots moving to the next area of Sansha site. It is a contributing reason to my choice of Logistics for those (biannual) times I join a fleet.

  2. I think that was me...I saw a brief bit of text "Wandering Rose", before it disappeared with the firing of a gate. Confirmed incursion migration.

  3. That's my favorite thing about high sec: people can more or less fly whatever they want to, so they do, so you see all kinds of interesting stuff.

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…

The lack of perfection

I had the pleasure of having Keskora Yaari. We met a bit after I started the CSM and hit it off. As friendships often do it developed into being about the people and not the medium that we met each other in. My new house has a guest room (my previous one was taken over by my mother who moved in and never moved out) and it was fun to have someone in that I could babble about a large part of my last six months of house renovations.

I tried to pamper and spoil her. Those are always the most fun things to do when a friend comes over. I did make sure she was stuffed full of local interesting things. It is only fair, after all. My abilities as a host have improved and I was pleased with myself.

One of our interesting links, outside of Eve, is dogs. We are both dog people. Over my years blogging I have discussed and shared time my creatures. From the passing of Nyx to the acquisition of Intuition. He is doing great by the way. He is two and a half now!


We discussed Eve some but it wasn't…
