But I have to say, Letrange’s postings about some issues with planetary interaction are a great read. I’ve been following the “bug” vetting process, and have enjoyed the reads to date. If you haven’t seen them, I’d go check them out.

Probably going to be a slow week. A) My porch is being repaired and the work is being done by yours truly. Post hole digging is fun, but it’s work. B) Corp is at war. I usually bang out to an unknown area during such times. Not “there” yet, war pvp wise. C) My xbox was returned from it’s trip to get the red ring of death repaired… ;)
I started by stealing a data core from a mission runner, Gekoon. He responded by swearing, using nasty language and stepped it up when I told him his price for ransom was 350k. Some local pilots got involved, and in the middle, I get an email:

I returne,d, you were gone. I kept Data Core and now you can purchase it from the market for 2.5Million, buyout.
Next time, follow direction. Have fun with your mission agent.
This turned into a long conversation. He actually wasted enough time so that I could go get a Catalyst fitting for suicide. I chose not to, instead hoping he’d take the item from a jetcan instead.
[23:23:57] Gilbert Hamilton > transfer 1,500,000 to my account.

[23:25:05] Gilbert Hamilton > If I take it off auction, I lose 100k. And you’re still a jerk.
[23:25:13] Gekoon > and u got offended/.
[23:25:14] Gilbert Hamilton > So no, your price is 1.5 Mil, ilke your helper told you it would be.
[23:25:24] Gekoon > i thought you liked being called a bitch

[23:29:28] Gekoon > when u give me the core
[23:29:36] Gekoon > u r gonna see some money
[23:29:52] Gilbert Hamilton > Ok, then I will make a contract *just* for you. (A private one) for the core.
[23:30:02] Gilbert Hamilton > The price then goes back up to the 1.5Mil I promissed Grogath I would sell to you.
[23:30:10] Gilbert Hamilton > Plus fees for terminating the contract.
[23:30:13] Gilbert Hamilton > ~100k.
[23:30:15] Gilbert Hamilton > nothing much.

[23:47:44] Gilbert Hamilton > (the ships don’t work like that.)
[23:47:57] Gekoon > not in my ship
[23:48:10] Gekoon > in the wreck u took it from
[23:48:19] Gilbert Hamilton > I can’t, it’s not “mine” to put back into.

[23:59:16] Gilbert Hamilton > I have yet to see money, but hey, whatever.
[23:59:17] Gilbert Hamilton > later.
Toward the end, I decided to go play Modern Warfare 2, so I put the item back up on contract.
A few minutes later, he returned in polite conversation asking again to send the money. He stated he was a trial account.
Well, that’s too bad for him. I told him to use a friend or be less of an asshole next time.
