Busterd

Friday, July 11th, 2014

I'm kinda tired already. That doesn't bode well for this evening. And I really think I should endeavour to get our Bustard transport back from high-sec dock. Not for any particular reason, you understand, and certainly not because our tower is now regularly sending notifications complaining that it will throw ...

Red squares mean null-sec

Sunday, July 6th, 2014

Undock from Jita, homeward trip planned and mapped, and align to the first stargate. This is all working out rather well, having sold a billion ISK of loot through a fortuitous wormhole, and we'll soon have the Revelation up and running properly. It may even be worth making a second ...

Flirtation with EVE University

Friday, April 18th, 2014

I come on-line to see my glorious leader and a trail of bookmarks. I follow the trail to see where they lead, which is first unsurprisingly in to a class 3 w-space system. My notes tell me that the exit goes to low-sec empire space, and combine with my directional ...

Single-handedly destroying new player retention

Wednesday, April 2nd, 2014

It looks like a standard start to my evening, but it's easier than normal. It seems our static wormhole collapsed in on itself and spawned a tiny Big Bang—so, a bang, I suppose—for its replacement to be on the same locus. I warp across to take a look, the wormhole ...

Another Heron hacked

Tuesday, March 4th, 2014

New gas and a relic site don't interest me at home, and neither does a tower and lack of ships in our neighbouring system. Neither result really surprises me, though. It's far from common to come on-line at the same time a fleet is raiding our home system, and outbound ...

Rock-man kung fu

Monday, March 3rd, 2014

Where is everyone? Not in our home system. And I only see two bubbles in our neighbouring class 3 w-space system. Hoping there is more lying out of range of my directional scanner, I launch probes and blanket the system. The three anomalies and seven signatures I pretty much expect, ...

Ghost and relics

Saturday, March 1st, 2014

Back to the tower to lurk. I'm not expecting much in a system where I've just ambushed a hauler collecting planet goo, but where else am I going to lurk? Besides, it lets me watch for new contacts and potential ship changes, to see if the system gets hot or ...

Why am I scanning?

Saturday, February 22nd, 2014

There's bountiful gas for Aii to harvest, my colleague coming on-line shortly after I do. But the one other signature that requires checking in the home system resolves to be a second wormhole, which isn't good. Well, it isn't good for Aii, who may not want to suck gas in ...

Bumping in to a Bestower

Sunday, January 19th, 2014

High-sec here I come! The activity in the class 2 w-space system I was just meant to be passing through has been suppressed, giving me a new corpse to carry, and so I can get on with scanning for more wormholes through the static exit to Essence. Seeing three extra ...

Hacking open a hacking Heron

Thursday, January 16th, 2014

The second wormhole in low-sec is a K162 from class 3 w-space, one not obviously being collapsed by an Orca. More's the pity. Jumping back to w-space has circumstances return to normal, with a tower and no ships visible on my direction scanner. Normal circumstances mean normal operating procedures. I ...
