Missiles shoot off the market

Saturday, January 31st, 2009

Blimey, all my Scourge heavy missiles sell within a day of putting them on the market, perhaps because I undercut the market. I was still careful to make a profit. Considering how many missiles I use on any individual level three mission and how often I am replenishing ...

This is a local shop for local people

Friday, January 30th, 2009

With missiles and modules rolling off the production line I mention my proclivity to buy what I need locally. Rather than jump to a nearby system to save a bit of ISK I will pay slightly more for the convenience of being able to stay in the station, from ...

Rolling off the production line

Thursday, January 29th, 2009

My first manufacturing jobs in EVE Online finish, with a couple of thousand Scourge heavy missiles waiting ready to be picked up. As I mentioned, it was only after I had started the manufacture of the missiles that I realise the number of missiles being produced would perhaps last ...

Music of 2008: prologue

Wednesday, January 28th, 2009

When I play music on my iPod Touch I really miss the album shuffle mode available on my old third generation iPod. When I got the Touch I didn't realise it was missing a feature that I used extensively and when I saw it was missing I didn't think ...

Ascending Utgarde Keep

Tuesday, January 27th, 2009

I spend so much time in New Eden that it is almost the end of the weekend before I wake up Sapphire in World of Warcraft. My guild is optimistic about getting a Northrend instance run scheduled and I am looking forwards to it myself. The choice is ...

Making test missiles

Monday, January 26th, 2009

I spent plenty of time as a capsuleer this weekend. Many thanks go to Kirith Kodachi who gave me a researched BPO for Scourge heavy missiles. I buy some minerals off the market and install a job in to a manufacturing slot to produce a healthy number of ...

Learning a lesson

Sunday, January 25th, 2009

Forgetting about the time and letting your jet-can expire is not a mistake someone makes twice.

Hello four lanes, goodbye M10

Saturday, January 24th, 2009

The M1 carriageway widening between junctions six and ten has been completed, opening on time at the end of last month. For over two-and-a-half years my daily commute to work was beset with ten miles of roadworks, reduced speed limits, and regular traffic jams, but now it has all ...

My first steps with a BPO

Friday, January 23rd, 2009

I decide not to throw myself in to industry and manufacturing without some instruction from people who know better. There will still be much I need to learn myself and I see no point in hampering my early efforts through mistakes that could be avoided with a little research. ...

Stumbling in to The Nexus

Thursday, January 22nd, 2009

I haven't really done much in the way of instances in Northrend yet. This is because my small guild has been a little fragmented over the holidays, my taking time to level a death knight through Outlands and somehow perservering with her mining and blacksmithing skills, even before the ...
