Scheduling some flight time.

Although things have been quiet on this blog, things have not been quiet in real life. That is both good and bad.

Part of the reason I have been so busy is because I have been taking a series of courses after work to drive my career forward. All the studying for exams has left me with little free time, and what time I do have I try to spend on my family.

However, I recently applied for an exemption for my next course (which was due to start in September) because it covers an area of work that I have a great deal of experience with. That exemption was just granted, so I ought to have a little EvE time between mid-September and mid-December.

Not a lot of time, mind you. But some.

See you in space.


  1. I just recently found your blog and read through the entire thing in a couple of days. It is very well written and you've inspired myself and two of my friends to get into PvP.

    Here's what happened tonight thanks to you: First, I went out in a newly fitted Rifter and after some searching through hi sec, I found myself in Embod staring at an Orca with no pilot! In my haste to nab it, I forgot I couldn't fly one. So I let some friends in [PRAX] know about the free candy. Later on, I get 100m ISK as a "finder's fee". I can't believe the luck and still can't stop laughing.

    Later, after dinner, I jumped back in my Rifter and flipped a can in Hek. The Hulk sent it's drones after me and instead of committing to the fight, he kept recalling and launching his drones. This went on for about 2 minutes until his friend, who was also flying a Rifter, showed up. I fought the good fight, but eventually succumbed.

    Afterwards, I convo'd both pilots to wish them a gf. While we were talking, I got the Rifter pilot to agree to another match, without the Hulk's drones. So after fitting out another Rifter, we met up and got started. This time I prevailed!

    The Hulk decided he didn't like it when I looted his friend's wreckage and sent his drones after me again. So since he started it, I felt obliged to respond. I wore down his shield tank quite a bit before I had to warp to my safe spot. I stayed there long enough to allow my shields to regen and I headed back in. The Hulk was still there mining! So I re-engaged. I slowly popped all of his drones and then held him for ransom. The Rifter pilot offered to pay me and I accepted, but instead of ISK, I got a Rifter in my face (which was promptly podded by concord, LOL). I gave the Hulk one last chance to pay up and he did, a cool 200m ISK.

    I think that turned out to be one really fun, and profitable, night. And it's all thanks to you! I look forward to your future posts and perhaps we'll run into each other on the battle field one day.
