Aiming for space

Thursday, July 17th, 2014

I'm going home, but I don't get there. Thankfully, it is not a fleet of dozen strategic cruisers and their heavy interdictor pal waiting on the other side of a wormhole that stops me, but just my directional scanner. Specifically, seeing two Venture mining frigates in a class 3 w-space ...

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 ...

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 ...

Fly-by in a gas site

Monday, June 30th, 2014

A new day, a new signature. It's a new gas site, how mundane. I'll check next door for more interesting circumstances instead. Huh, the static wormhole is sitting in the same spot as yesterday, and here's me fiddling with scanning probes. Never mind, I've found it now, let's jump through ...

Claiming another Gecko

Sunday, June 22nd, 2014

I can continue the test flight of my new ship. Or help my glorious leader pop Sleepers in a closed home system. That seems a much better opportunity than pretty much any other w-space activity at the moment, rather depressingly. So, surprisingly, I can't be arsed to do anything but ...

Aligned and zipping

Friday, June 6th, 2014

A new day, a new constellation. Only the one signature in the home system makes my first step straightforward, and I jump through our static wormhole to the neighbouring class 3 w-space system. My directional scanner is clear from the other side of the wormhole, with two of the system's ...

Managing to kill a low-sec rat

Saturday, May 24th, 2014

The barely scratched Epithal hauler is back in his tower, where he sits for a moment before going off-line. I dunno why, his stupid ship will let him collect all his goo with little threat. But he's gone. The Helios covert operations boat returns from wherever, and is joined by ...

Mobile boring unit

Sunday, May 18th, 2014

I'm about to recall my probes, but my curiosity gets the better of me. What type of static wormhole does this class 5 w-space system hold? It's not a particularly interesting question, admittedly, but there may be a reason why the system is unoccupied. I have time to find out, ...

Scanning for the source

Friday, May 16th, 2014

There's not much left in the home system. A couple of ore sites, a crappy anomaly that only the desperate would care to clear by itself, our static wormhole. And one other signature. The system is clean because my glorious leader kicked the Sleepers out of the last good anomaly, ...

Sleepers and ore

Thursday, May 8th, 2014

Some good anomalies have floated back in to the home w-space system, along with an extra signature. Is it another wormhole? Nope, the other signature is just a bit more gas, which should give us a closed system. I perhaps ought to turn some of those anomalies in to ISK, ...
