My Skill Queue went empty

The thing I miss most is having mail. When I log in I often check that line to see if I have mail. Unfortunately, I do not. I am not surprised. There is no reason for me to have mail. Yet, I do miss it.

In some ways having regular eve-mail was the moment that I was most connected. I had people to talk with and engage in. It was the closest I've ever been to having a normal social level that I was comfortable with. This shows you how introverted I am that eve-mail filled up my social meter. 

I log in and look around. Normally, I am looking for the people that I do not have other social contacts with. It is very, very easy to lose those relationships. The binding glue of the game has dissolved and friendship, as an adult, can take work. Even in this information time. Eve gave me things to talk about. Without it, I remember that I don't talk very much. Unless it is about dogs and driving my co-workers crazy when people come to me for advice they won't follow.

Since I logged in, I went to fill my skill queue. I still havent learned my T3s to V. Stubbornness for the sake of it. However, I realize that I don't have the T3D installed so I went about and took care of that. My Eve habit sare not fully dead. I made sure not to blindly buy things and check my zeroes. 

The advent of skill injections sucked the joy of training from me. I find that I sit upon a stubborn little hill. One where I ignore skill injections while understanding that my habits of training and time are from an era past. I do miss those little milestones and the joy that came with them.

But things change and so does CCP. I was sent a few articles and dipped my toe into the edge of the discussion over CCP being sold. I didn't dip far. Really up to my nail polish and that was about it.

I do admit, I am glad I am not on the CSM with that discussion. I will also say that I am not surprised. Instead, I chuckled. I hate being right about some things. I wish I had been surprised instead.  But the sale has happened and I will see if my predictions come true. I have made the ones that I hope happen and the ones that I believe will happen.

  1. I think a lot of older players from generations past still run their skill queues as we always have. I have used injectors on my alts or in a real at the minute crisis to pull sp from my main and sell it for isk to grab a ship to take to a fleet or distribute the sp to a low sp alt with no penalty to get a job done quickly but I am no less satisfied when those long awaited level 5s click over to "done" :)
    I guess it is all perspective.
    To me personally SI are just another tool that I can use if needed in a pinch when otherwise I would of just been straight up SOL.

It was a random question that I knew the answer of. I have 'Sugar' as a keyword so it highlights green and catches my attention. This made me chuckle. Maybe I'll have to go and see what it is like to shoot a ship one day? I could not help but smile. Basi suggested that I put my Titan killmail in my bio and assert my badassery. I figure, naw. It was a roll of the dice that landed me that kill mail. It doesn't define me as a person. Bios are interesting. The idea of a biography is a way to personalize your account. You can learn a lot about a person by what they choose to put in their bio

Taboo Questions

Let us talk contentious things. What about high sec? When will CCP pay attention to high sec and those that cannot spend their time in dangerous space?  This is somewhat how the day started, sparked by a question from an anonymous poster. Speaking about high sec, in general, is one of the hardest things to do. The amount of emotion wrapped around the topic is staggering. There are people who want to stay in high sec and nothing will make them leave. There are people who want no one to stay in high sec and wish to cripple everything about it. There are people in between, but the two extremes are large and emotional in discussion. My belief is simple. If a player wishes to live in high sec, I do not believe that anything will make them leave that is not their own curiosity. I do not believe that we can beat people out of high sec or destroy it until they go to other areas of space. Sometimes, I think we forget that every player has the option to not log back in. We want them to log

Summer in Iceland - Day Six

It is the final day and we have moved past Sion's shark consumption. We left Cafe Loki and just strolled back through town. I wandered in and out of stores looking for soft gloves or socks. There are lots of gloves, socks, scarves, hats, and etc all over the place but most of them are made of wool and are as harsh and scratchy as anything I have ever seen. I wanted something soft and silky and amazing and I didn't find that which is okay. The general game plan was to find this Ice Cream place across the street from CCP. It seems that they make their ice cream daily and it is the most amazing ice cream ever. So, we head to this ice cream place which is also near a grocery store and some museums. We go in and Corbexx orders some terrible concoction of salted peanuts and some candy that I hate. He said it was delicious. I was stuck staring at the flavors and not knowing what anything was because I'm illiterate in Iceland. I also have an ongoing problem with catching the
