The most current ending

My fansite was turned off at some point. I do not take offense. I was(am?) inactive after all. I don't pepper the darkness with my random thoughts with quite the energy that I once did. I find myself pondering what to do. Do I live a life of an unsubscribed account? One where I can chatter and prattle but do almost nothing? Or, do I maintain a habit that I am not really using at this time?

It leaves a question that will eventually be answered.

While I pondered this utterly deep thought, I saw someone ask about bounties. Ah, bounties. How they have not changed while I had my eyes closed. The question was, "What bounty amount does there need to be to get people to pay attention to it?"

While eleventy billion is amusing to say, it doesn't answer the question. Down in the depths of my skull I pulled up the general answer about bounties and their payouts. I then went looking for a bounty payout and found that they had long ago vanished under the weight of war declarations…

There it is!

After a week of rather more work then I care for and a weekend of crochet, I decided to log in and figure out what was going on.

Had my contracts been delivered? The answer is yes.

Did I find my PLEX? Indeed I did. I maybe came back between old PLEX and Arum/Plex? Or something like that? I could always look at the news and the dev blogs. I can also just make random guesses and have no idea. The second is a lot more fun.

Sunday night isn't the night to find people. I logged in, typed some songs out in chat and wandered back off. I accomplished absolutely nothing.

Bliss.

Consolidation and Loss

I have one active account. I admit, I've found other things to do with all of the money that I used to spend on alt accounts. Intuition gets a monthly Bark Box for instance. I've also taken to getting my nails done every two weeks.

That made me think of consolidation. I have all of the stock from TCS sitting in a station in high sec. I doubt I can fly my freighters on the alt accounts and I don't feel like reactivating them. Moving possessions to sale might be a hobby for a little bit.

I'm not interested in a firesale so much as just selling some of the mass of things from past projects. I don't see myself setting those projects up again anytime soon.

I'm not interested in draining any of my characters of their skill points. Not only am I fond of them, I dislike the skill point injector system just as much as I did before. Now it is a vague distaste instead of a passionate stance.

Of course, as I search my assets I find a billion ISK in assets stuck in low sec.…

Muscle Memory

I was struggling to take screen shots. I noticed that the exhaust on my cynabal was a bit cooler. I'd struggled earlier in the day to take a screenshot. There are options such as googling the answer or asking someone. That all seemed ridiculous when I can hit my keyboard randomly and see what happens.

I am the proud owner of one screen shot. I decided to venture and pick up some stuff from low sec just because. I was super proud of myself until I forgot what I was doing and wandered away from my computer while I was in high sec. I came back alive but I laughed that my survival instincts seem to not be operational. On the flip side, my lawn got mowed.

There is also my useless bookmarks. As I warped to a pounce I had under a station I pondered the existence of the station above me. I wasn't undocking when the newer, bigger grids came into play. I now remember a thought somewhere in the back of my brain that I'd have to change my bookmarks. As that I was not undocking at the…

Random Thought

Why did this never occur to me before?

It would have been a much more interesting and interactive life to get a percentage of the product instead of ISK at the Customs Office.

How did I miss this? I'm sure I never thought about it. I was to focused on raw numbers, cash flow, and not the potential obnoxious and fascinating struggle of product movement.

This may have an interest for me only due to my struggle with Planetary Interaction. I just don't get it. I've read tutorials. I've burned with jealousy over the sucess of others. I have not managed to have any sucess in something that others swear to me is an incarnation of simply.

Amusing Struggles

The sensible and productive thing to do would be to go look at developer blogs and figure out changes. That has little appeal and feels to serious for my current low level interest in things.

I like the new character sheet windows. I made some assumptions about how things would work. I assumed I could still drag skills around and adjust my windows. I was correct. I assumed that I could drag skills and scroll. That worked too. I should see if I can detach the training queue but that seems like more work then it is worth right now when I have such amazing plans.

Someone, that I will assume is me, decided to fill Sugar's skill queue. I say good job to her. Sugar has learned all sorts of random things that I have  no interest in. However, that has opened up her path to learn some scanning skills. Finally. After five or six years.

For years, scanning skills where the privy of two of my other accounts. I diversified early and seriously. Sugar was serious spaceship pew pew. Today, I chee…

I still know my pass words

I was asked about Intuition. He is doing well. He has just passed a year and a half and gained regular bed privileges.

I logged in today.

I was frightened because my shuttle was moving. I realized it was the intro animation where you slide into the hangar. I went phew because I had been frantically trying to abort my undock. It seems as if some habits do not fade quickly.

Others do. My neocom has been reset yet again. I stared at it for a bit until I figured which button was the market. That happened because I wanted to see the price of PLEX. 1.2 billion. My, my, my. Now I can lean back and wax poetic about when PLEX was 400 million.

I giggled because I've crossed that 100 million skill point barrier that once meant so much to me. Along the way, I've never put a set of +5 implants into Sugar's head.

Changes do not mean changes. I have little idea about the state of Eve. I see that the character sheet has been resigned. I was exited about the ship cleaning button. But me? …
