Scuttling a Skiff

Sunday, July 20th, 2014

I'm heading home, through a really convenient wormhole from high-sec to low-sec, when I remember the other wormhole I scanned. It's in this low-sec system, and I haven't reconnoitred it yet because it's an outbound wormhole, not wanting to open it immediately if it wasn't already open. It's a long ...

Sore Sabre

Wednesday, July 16th, 2014

No, it's not good enough. I'm not going off-line yet, screw the two systems connecting to us whose occupants can't be arsed to collapse their waveforms to either be active or inactive and not some weird superposition of both. I'll scan at least the class 3 system through our static ...

Almost something happening

Tuesday, July 15th, 2014

Losing a Bustard transport full of fuel and buying a replacement has somehow cost us a wad of ISK. Therefore, my plan tonight is to make some ISK back, nominally by thoroughly exploding whole sites of Sleepers. Two new signatures in the home system have other ideas, though, particularly as ...

Getting an Epithal

Wednesday, July 9th, 2014

Back in the home system, I repair the damage to my Proteus strategic cruiser after the curious case of the onffline tower. Now to return to our neighbouring class 3 w-space system, where I'll ignore the Epithal hauler up for grabs by the same tower, what with the Onyx heavy ...

Going forwards

Friday, July 4th, 2014

Back through dangerous w-space, to deadly w-space, and home. The deadliest w-space of all. Neat dramatic tension and everything, but nothing's actually happening. The wormholes connecting in to our home system are totally quiet, and I got bored scanning my way backwards through inactive systems. I've come home to go ...

Checking my behind

Thursday, July 3rd, 2014

It's just me to start the evening. I think. No colleagues are on-line yet, but two new signatures in the home system could indicate the possibility of company. I should check them, so launch probes and scan. They are both wormholes, which, along with our static wormhole, offers me early ...

Blink and you miss it

Tuesday, July 1st, 2014

The class 3 w-space system has been subdued. The Venture mining frigate we nearly caught returns to the tower, the pilot stutters, and goes off-line. It's time to scan properly. There are four anomalies and twelve signatures, two of which we know about. One is our K162, the other the ...

Wormholes popping

Saturday, June 14th, 2014

Lurking on a wormhole, waiting for a scout. I can't really say why, because beyond this w-space system being his home there is little reason to believe the Imicus frigate will come back this way any time soon. I think I'm more frustrated at the new behaviour of the interface ...

Finding more class 4 systems

Thursday, June 12th, 2014

Oh, unknown signature, what are you? More gas? You do not interest me. Through our static wormhole I go, updating my directional scanner on the other side to see nothing but some cans littering the class 3 w-space system. I launch probes and perform a blanket scan, not expecting much ...

Indecision in Amarr

Monday, June 9th, 2014

Today's static wormhole sits where yesterday's did. I wish I'd realised this before I resolved it, given that there was a bookmark obviously guiding my probes. I'll never get that twenty seconds back. I have to scan anyway, though, as an unexpected signature is a second wormhole, this one from ...
