Your Skill Queue is Empty

It has been years since I heard Aura's voice. In fact, I'm rather sure it has changed since my first log in six years ago. But that original voice, I loved it. For those first few months, "Skill training complete," was a rush of pleasure.

I long ago turned off my volume for voice coms. Then I turned off my volume for chats with people. Now, my volume is rarely on. Yet, clear as day I could hear her little, cold and scornful notice that my skill queue was empty.

It has been a long time since that happened. I felt a bit bad. Neglectful, really. Skill queues were such an important part of my time in game. The months, weeks, days, and finally minutes until you could explode from the dock in a new fit... ahh I can still feel the adrenaline from it. I know it has changed but it is a fond memory.

While my future in Eve is still undefined, I find the launchers icon sits on my screen. I purged a lot of Eve from my day to day life. The launcher being there makes me think sometimes. Where am I now in things?

Also, I had someone reading through my blog and leaving comments. It brings me a warm happiness that somewhere in these thousands of posts, people find some amusement. Yet, when I write, I never thought that this would be one of the blogs gone quiet. Maybe because I was so loud in this little room.

I'm not totally done. Sugar's queue was topped back up.

Passion is so circular

I should dust the blog and delete the spam to leaks in through googles not so bad filters.

I log in from time to time to check my mail and see some of my friends. But, of lat I've commented on a few things in r/eve and it makes me think. Not of the impassioned things that I once thought about as I played the game but of the passions of the game.

I have the gift of several eve players are parts of my life. And we talk, but rarely about Eve. Most of them have left to some extent or another but the relationship that we gained is still strong. I do not hate Eve but I am still exhausted with Eve, even now when I am so far out. It seems to be CSM summit time and the anger and race that sits atop everything related to the game is still there.

It is interesting in its exhaustive existence. The passion is there and the player reaction continues to go full circle. Some things are still said the same way over, and over, and over again. Is it love? Is it hate? Or is it just stimulation that 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…

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…
