A Bit of a Stumble

I get to write about a popular topic of the day. What happens when the game goes down?

I was fortunate. While today is my day off, my mother had already claimed the majority of my time.  I didn't get back home until 1600 my time and the server was still down. So, I talked to people on Tweetfleet slack and have spent some time writing things up and playing Minecraft.

A few years ago I'd have been all fretful with my game addiction. I've reached the point that I can put Eve down fairly easily. I also had nothing planned which helped. Then, add on the skill queue changes and there is little need for me to log in today other than simple pleasure of logging in and chatting.

It does remind me that I need to get back to resettling myself. I've somewhat learned not to play and I have to teach myself how to do so again. I've spent a long time docked up because it was safe from making mistakes that would get me ridiculed. Now, off on my own to wander around again it doesn't matter what mistakes I make. I wish it hadn't mattered before but unfortunately, it did. That is a side effect of doing things with others. It is no longer my singular perceptions that matters.

It leaves a lot to think about. But those are thoughts that move slowly in the back of my mind. I'm more occupied with work. Rob posted, "Enjoy your day off the CSM." I chuckled. I rolled over this morning around 0730 as I am wont to do and checked my phone. I immediately started bad typing into a discussion and then fell back asleep. The CSM is on several different mediums and I've been gathering thoughts and opinions and writing my opinions and reading ideas and reactions. If anything, I'd think there would be less to do if I did more in client. As is, I can easily not log in and still fill my day directly with Eve.

But now, the servers have come back up. I'm going to finish my tomato and get to answering my in game mail now that I can access it.

  1. Seriously, people laughing at you to the extent that you just wanted to stay docked?!

    Some people need to calm way down. Glad you're finding your feet again.

    1. Some of the larger lowsec entities take themselves several magnitudes to serious (in my not so humble opinion) :)

    2. I can remember a time when an alliance leader sent out mails saying that if we didn't go on the deployment that he would send gank squads back home to blow up all the ratting carriers he could find... and then did... Was posting them in alliance channel for days. Needless to say, they weren't there very much longer...
