And later in the night…

Came across a Myrm doing an outpost. Screwed with him a bit, but ultimately simply lost a minimalist fit Rifter to his Myrm’s drones. The Cynabal helped out a bit later, though. Most of the time was spent in station BS and stealing the rest of the site out from under him.

Feels empty sometimes…

Low-sec, that is. Before I decided to tinker around with some mission runners and do that old “goto” tactic of the ninja, I ran through the Marele/Spaen constellations in my Stabber. Looking for trouble. I had a couple of people following me from some random corp, but nothing that I as really worried about. I did know enough not to fuck with a corp while I’m out on a solo roam.

Then again, a few moments after starting this post while popping back into EVE to click “warp to zero” – I found two members of a corp called “Peanut Butter Jelly Time [PBJT]”. One in a Tormenter and the other in a Badger. It turned out, I did not manage to catch them for more than a few seconds, but I did get some experience in the art of direction scanning, etc. I met up with them in Groothese and as I started to burn toward the little mining operation they had setup, they warped off. No big deal. I’m on the way back to Dodixie to prep the Orca and head out somewhere to pick on mission runners and snag some loot for the market.

Gil’s Tip #2

Tip two, because I assume I’ve tipped before. I’m a good tipper. Forget what the waitress said. In today’s roam with my alt, I came across a Catalyst and decided to take it out via suicide. The story follows.

[00:17:48] Cp Markus > lols
[00:24:39] Cp Markus > how long does it take to blow up a pod???
[00:25:59] Gilbert Hamilton’s Alt > **posted killmail**
[00:26:05] Gilbert Hamilton’s Alt > dunno, I just blew one up in short order.
[00:26:31] Cp Markus > lol bragging about newb kills is for pussies
[00:26:43] Gilbert Hamilton’s Alt > It’s just easier when getting my sec status lowered.
[00:26:44] Cercis InoAtari > vaginas? where?
[00:26:46] Gilbert Hamilton’s Alt > Also, he wasn’t a newb.
[00:27:00] Gilbert Hamilton’s Alt > I kid. OF COURSE HE WAS!
[00:27:27] Cp Markus > lol says the dude hiding in a station lols
[00:28:05] Cp Markus > hey he’s back out here in another catalyst lols
[00:28:53] Cp Markus > I’ll give you 20 mil if you can do it again lol
[00:29:15] EPIC Immortal’s > ya come out now bro

This was the guy just took the catalyst from

[00:29:39] Cp Markus > Gilbert Hamilton’s Alt vs epic…… hmmm my money is on epic
[00:32:09] Gilbert Hamilton’s Alt > what system?
[00:32:12] Gilbert Hamilton’s Alt > erm belt.
[00:32:26] Cp Markus > the first one
[00:33:26] Cp Markus > lols target jammers eh?

[00:33:35] Cp Markus > hold on he’s on his way

Apparently this Cp guy, who’s been around since early 2011, doesn’t know which chat window to type into…
He targets me with his ship. A drake. Then proceeds to get himself slain by CONCORD because he decided to just up and shoot me. I suppose he could have mde the mistake, but I’d like to think betting on stupid paid off this time.

[00:34:14] Cp Markus > hmmm……

Yeap, it would seem, it does.

[00:35:03] Gilbert Hamilton’s Alt > lol. CP Markus just got himself CONCORDED
[00:35:20] Cp Markus > dont bother me lol
[00:35:50] Cp Markus > ship for ship
[00:37:42] Gilbert Hamilton’s Alt > Oh, CP….
[00:37:56] Gilbert Hamilton’s Alt > –I return in the newb ship, take his stuff, then link his stuff in local– etc…
[00:37:58] Gilbert Hamilton’s Alt > thanks for the stuff.
[00:38:13] Cp Markus > lol its cool, just figured you can have a merry christmas
[00:38:18] Cp Markus > i can get it back no problem
[00:39:37] Cp Markus > you know whats really funny…. is watching my alliance slam you (:

Oh, alliance chat. Good. I open a chat convo. Hoping to gather more tears, and hoping for a wardec on this shit lazy empty corp I am in, before I jump out of it into another nullsec corp I am going to try to sneak into. (An earlier chat convo was had about that, prior to this stuff in local. Here’s to my next target.)

Chat Convo…

[00:40:33] Gilbert Hamilton’s Alt > o/
[00:40:41] Gilbert Hamilton’s Alt > Don’t bother salvage – it’s gone too.
[00:40:49] Gilbert Hamilton’s Alt > But I can contract the fields to you if you’d like.
[00:40:54] Cp Markus > lol you think i care????
[00:41:00] Cp Markus > hmmm nah
[00:41:06] Cp Markus > I’ve got plenty lol

[00:41:55] Cp Markus > i just went ship for ship. but you scooted out like a bitch, so its all good (:
[00:41:58] Gilbert Hamilton’s Alt > of course you were. as I was going to lose my cat and the sec status. ;)
[00:42:27] Gilbert Hamilton’s Alt > Well, the folks at TC-26 say thank you for your time, energy, and most of all… tears.
[00:42:40] Cp Markus > lol no tears for queers.
[00:43:01] Gilbert Hamilton’s Alt > So you’re saying you’re not crying, or you’re gay? I don’t understand, but do have the strangest erection.
[00:43:43] Cp Markus > im definitely not a queer… lols,
[00:44:07] Gilbert Hamilton’s Alt > Darn. Well fly safe then. o/

Know what would have been nice with the “new website”, CCP?

A mobile friendly version of EVE Gate. http://gate.eveonline.com while on my iPhone can be viewed, but application of a different CSS sheet isn’t too bad. I know, it’s so 2005 to apply different logic to a site based upon screen size, but hey, who am I? I’m just a developer. Nothing much.

Power. Heat. Food.

So, I live in Connecticut – USA. The recent storm took out about 200% of our power grid, because our power company didn’t learn shit after Irene. Just when I’m getting over this grief thing, with the death of my wife, and wanting to get back in game and blow up some ships or lose a few of mine – we lose power. Which means I lose heat. The kids are ok, with their father (I am a stepdad; an awesome one, at that), and I am staying at a hotel with someone from the “old days” that newly walked into my life.

Hound is down…

Lost the Hound today, to a bit of a game – so to speak. I arrived into a mission piloted by a Raven, a Fed Navy Comet, and a Noctis. Naturally, I started stealing.

To start, I wasn’t in my Hound. I was in my Vigil, doing the usual steal/salvage thing. I haven’t been in a fight in a long time, and was hoping they would shoot. So, they did and I enjoyed that. Returning in my Dramiel, didn’t do much but get me some drone-killing practice against his full flight of T2 drones. A few minutes later, I returned in my Wolf. The drones went down fast, but I couldn’t crack his Raven’s shields. Having exactly no experience against a Raven, and very little pvp overall – I was enjoying trying a few different things out.

Soon, I had to return to repair. While doing that, I waited the 15 minute aggro timer out, and then returned in the Hound. Sitting cloaked a little bit away from the acceleration gate, I waited for the Raven and the Noctis to warp off into the next room. The Comet stayed behind, and I was able to get him down into armor. But soon, my Hound popped and I warped off, tail between my legs.

Lesson learned – I hate drones. Hate them. Lesson two: the Hound is not good for close quarters stuff, and would fit me better in a fleet.

May be late to the game but

Does anyone else find it kinda douche-like that at battleclinic’s website, when clicking on the background image, you get taken right to the “omg sign up for EVE with our buddy program ID in the url” page?

Sometimes all you get is a “no thanks”

After a while in Amattens, finding no “hits” of any real fun, I just started opening conversations with the people I was stealing from. This person was polite, and sometimes that’s all you get in an afternoon. Oh well, such is the ninja life.

[23:15:40] Gilbert Hamilton > Good afternoon, sir.
[23:15:40] dibben25 > like that ore
[23:15:50] Gilbert Hamilton > it does not belong to me as of yet.
[23:16:13] Gilbert Hamilton > if you would like, however, I can release it back to you and include licensure for one week’s “jetcan” mining in this region. (Everyshore)
[23:16:26] dibben25 > no thanks

Another low-sec lesson

Burning 70km toward the interceptor is not a good idea. But really, who cares? It’s just 8 million, and internet spaceships. I am enjoying this “go out and shoot stuff” stuff. #tweetfleet ftw!

Count your zeros. Even with CSPA charges.

I received a generic “spam” type email from loonylouise and replied in a very professional TEARS operative manner.

Then set my CSPA charge to 987,650 ISK.

Not only did I get a reply back, I also accepted a chat invitation.  Which lead nowhere.  I replied to the 2nd email and never received notification.

The character is 1 month old.  Probably took it for all it’s cash.

I verified this works by:

sending a note to an “unknown” (not in my contact list) alt (while still having the high CSPA charges.)

logging him in and sending a reply.  it tried to charge me. (alt is broke, couldn’t afford it anyway.)
