Reality of Company...

Just a quick one... I has done it, I jumped corp from HELPeR, and have joined with Epigene, he who Journey's Through the Mind and Oreamnos Amric, he who takes Notes from New Eden and their ilk in Z3R0 Return Mining [Illusion of Solitude].

I have just finished moving my Traveling Roadshow Orca, carrying some 12 ships, into the corp C2 home... called, Fred. ... yea, we call our homehole, "Fred"...  sheesh. Anyhoo, I am getting all settled in and lookin forward to gettin back into the swing of things.

So, new corp, new alliance, new bros, new holes and new going on... let us see what we shall see hmmm?

Fly indiscriminately and I'll see you in the sky...  =/|)=

Boofing Around a Bit...

I'm sorta back... ish.

Things have quieted down in my Real life... not all the way, but a bit, so I fired up the ol hoopty laptop, let the updates run and the cached data cache up and logged in.

Initially I've been solo mining and flying out n about near Amarr to see if the game has made me a noob again after basically a year on sabbatical. Gotta say, whatever changes have been wrought in the last year have not affected my Orca'ravan or the ships I carry aboard her. Back a few months afore I went on sabat I fitted an Orca as a traveling roadshow. I carry a small fleet of ships... a mining barge, a HAC droneboat, a tac dessie, a pirate frig, an assault frig and a cloaky expedition frigate.

These allow me to engage in a wide variety of gameplay from L2 through L4 missions and a variety of sites to "safe" passive mining and not so safe ninja mining. So far I feel the basic gameplay and fitting doesn't seem to have changed enough to be incomprehensible to me, or even really any different at all, so far.

My Orca's cargo hold is fully canned up to maximise her carrying capacity. When looking for a quiet night where I can sit back and watch a little TV or some of my fav sailing vlogs on Utoob or whatever I mine solo inna nice quiet .5 sys somewhere and when I have filled every crevice in the Orca up I make the run to Amarr. I also make a little off the lewts and slavage from the rats and sites. It aint the ISK I could make in my beloved negsec, Anoikis, but its a livin...

As for our home in the hole? Gone. Yea... We had a std old good ol' style POS and one a them there new fangled Stations... but my corp was AFK and, "Boom". Oh well, I always kissed ever ship I jumped into the hole goodbye the day I took em in there, I knew and accepted the risks, it's Anoikis, negative sec, the most dangerous space in EVE. I don't know my exact losses, but probably somewhere north of 8 to 10 bil ISK I think. This is why I kept a shadow fleet in Amarr... I logged in inna Venture, selfboomed it and my pod to wake up back in Amarr in a clean new clone. So it goes in EVE.

I don't know if any of the guys from my corp are interested in coming back. I'm picky about who I fly with and trust is the one commodity in EVE you cannot buy, beg, borrow or steal... and I trust NO ONE... so I'm really not sure at this point what I want to "do" in EVE... but I do know I still long to fly the deadly skies of New Eden... so for now, if you see me in local (local, yuch), give me shout... Who knows, maybe your's is a corp worth flying with.

Fly it like you stole it... and I'll see you in the sky.  =/|)=

All Quiet...

Last post, Dec 16... 8 months ago. What's up? The same, and not.
The divorce is, well, it's what it is... don't ask. Did not go as planned... go figure.

Me? Working full time, creating a totally new life out of the ashes of the old... you know, simple easy stuff. So, as you may have gleaned I'm still pretty busy.

Not much to say other than that, what's worth it (or legally neutral enough) to commit to recycled electrons...

Kids are well, at least as far as it goes given the circumstances. My dottir graduated on the honor roll, with awards for Latin and Strings (she's a 3rd year cellist). My son... he too graduated but, well not quite the same shine, but he's still mine. Work goes well. Still just the IT Support standard of puttin' out fires... some old, some new. The rest is either boring or is covered under lawyer, client privilege.

So, I'm still here just not in EVE. I do hope to make the time once things settle a bit. Keep a beacon burning for me and wish me some luck... =]

Fly however you damn well please! and hopefully see you in the sky... =/|)=
