All dressed up and ready to scan

"I noticed your killboard isn't active. Have you been gone for a bit?"

Lol. Chats are funny. It is nice to see that my boys think so highly of my still. Poor things.

I undocked and the Amarr station pooped me out like the slippery, golden turd nugget that my pod is and I started my journey.  (When did they add this extra glitter and graphics to the gates?). I even saw one of the ship transport things sliding out of warp at the gate.

I tried to do the right thing. I jumped into this clone but the only shuttle along my path was nine jumps away. Annoyed, I decided to go naked into the world. I remember that flying in your pod is bad. I just somewhat forgot why. I know implants are one reason. People sit on gates to pop pods hoping for a big kill.  I'm not worried about smartbombers. So.... I ran back to my ship with my butt hanging out and my UI too small.

I don't recognize any system names but I never really hung out in this part of space.

I made it back to my station where I enjoyed looking for the 'jump in station' button after jumping through all those star gates. This is why one does not play tired.

Next. I can undock again and make sure I can see the new ships in my overview. I am making the assumption that still has to be fixed by hand. Then I can learn to scan again and find my first tiny wormhole.

Why was I so worried about being killed? What would it matter? This is a positive to aloneness that I had not much thought about.

With my body and ship bonded back together (I will forever believe I am the ship. I hate the crew lore.), I had only to fiddle with my overview settings to add whatever new ships are around.

Confession time: I never really used a bunch of overviews. I had a somewhat sparse one for PvP without a lot of the floating junk but that was it. I find that I am a mediocre HUD user. I noticed in the Division 2 that I look for on screen queues more than I do the indicators on the map. When my friend turned on fog of war I didn't actually notice a difference because I don't rely on the display that much day to day.

However, I do know the importance of the overview and I'm sure I can remember what button to press to d-scan at some point. It is a button. Or button combo. Somewhere on my keyboard.  And if I am going to go play in the danger zone I need to pretend to give myself the opportunity to escape.

But, when I opened my overview, all teh ships were there. I guess that got pushed at some point.

As for the true update with Animal Crossing: Whitney has moved in and I decided to pay off my last mortgage loan for my basement. So, that is all paid off and now I can focus on the redesign of my island to ship the villagers over and give my house an island in between the orchard and the meadow.


  1. V for dscan,it works well mapped to a mouse button and if you find yourself typing vvvvvvv vvvvvvvv vvv v vvvvv to your friends in chat your doing it right ;) (joke)

  2. Oh almost forgot, I play in windowed mode and if you press Esc and go to the graphics/display tab you can scale it up via a drop down setting box but there isnt a way to actually lock it that I know of

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

Memoirs - Part Seven: The Taste of Scandal

Virtual Realities: Memoirs of an internet spaceship politician by Sugar Kyle CSM9, CSMX Viewers get some drama Is there any election that is scandal free? Virtual space politics are not excluded. Sometimes the scandals come from the people ruining. Sometimes they come from outside of that. “I can’t wait to enjoy the drama!” someone had said to me about the election. Those words would haunt me later as I fought not to be caught up and defined by the decisions another person had made. While I played the game and tried to convince people of my worthiness a dark drama was sweeping across the game. The CSM does not dictate game policy. CCP does that. It does not stop many from seeing the members as vocal representatives. It was a public post made by one member of the CSM that started a fire that would take years to go out. Eve Online is an interactive video game with few social rules. It is one of the games charmes. If you can trick another player into making a po

And back again

My very slow wormhole adventure continues almost as slowly as I am terminating my island in Animal Crossing.  My class 3 wormhole was not where I wanted to be. I was looking for a class 1 or 2 wormhole. I dropped my probes and with much less confusion scanned another wormhole. I remembered to dscan and collect my probes as I warped to the wormhole. I even remembered to drop a bookmark, wormholes being such good bookmark locations later. My wormhole told me it was a route into low sec. I tilted my head. How circular do our adventures go. Today might be the day to die and that too is okay. That mantra dances in the back of my head these days. Even if someone mocks me, what does that matter? Fattening someone's killboard is their issue not mine. So I jumped through and found myself in Efa in Khanid, tucked on the edge of high sec and null sec. What an interesting little system.  Several connections to high sec. A connection to null sec. This must be quite the traffic system.    I am f
