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 time, I didn't worry about it. Now, I face an interesting change.

I also found the 'add to queue' button under the ship skills. I find it very giggle worthy that it added to the end of my skill list. Some 124 days in the future.

  1. Under the ESC menu / Shortcuts tab, you will find a dense array of key combinations to do things in EVE. It keeps growing; new ones to control carrier fighters were added not long ago.

    On the other side, things being simplified for development and testing reasons: some players that believe "EVE has sound?" and want greater control of individual sounds volume, are considerably annoyed by the most recent update, and expressing it in this thread: https://forums.eveonline.com/default.aspx?g=posts&t=519006

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…
