(plug) It's only a few more days until my convention: Orion. Gamers in the area are most definitely welcome. (end plug)

Being on the concom isn't so bad. Honest. I have some inspiration.

The last few days on Eve have been a little frustrating. Didn't enjoy the operations on the weekend as much as I might have. Fortunately, a little thought discovered about four reasons why this might be. Even better, some ways to address them also became evident. One was easy, two more are more tricky, but I have the ability to make the needed changes myself. The final is something that I can only initiate (which I did). It's dependent on others to come to fruition. The best part: it seems to be happening! This is doubleplusgood.

This week could be the key week at work. By Monday, we should know if the vendor I'm associated with will be the primary one on the next phase of the project. This week I've actually got some relatively significant things to do on the proposal. Which is nice for a change.

Non-disclosure agreements are a b!tch some times. :)

And yet there's still some time for introspection. I'm trying to fully understand the reactions (or lack threreof) of two my closest. Best I can tell is that they're working from old information/assumptions. I'm not sure how best to communicate the change. Bah. They'll be fine. There's plenty of time in the universe, regardless of how fast some people seem to run around.

April will be an interesting month.

Let me speculate...

You didn't enjoy the operations in Eve over the weekend very much, because you did not fulfill the alpha role. You were a simple worker, following the desires/requests of other people in our corporation. Worse yet, you were doing things that I was asking you to do.

Putting myself into your shoes, I can understand why it felt like you were a minion. And honestly through this, no disrespect was intended.

But, there was a light at the end of the tunnel, and it wasn't a Bane Torpedo.

Your new in-game mining accounting utility is a hit, and extremely useful. I naturally flocked to it and was very satisfied that you found a way to help the corp which was unique and benefitted all. People recognize you as someone other than "who's that again?" now.

Next, I would recommend you get into a battleship asap. You've certainly got the cash for it. Even if you don't like PvP, it's ok because the corp is going to be moving in an NPC killing direction for the next couple of months. It is strongly recommended you monopolize on this and take the lead. With a Caldari Raven and a stockpile of missiles you can definitely dress to impress.

Also, if that is the route you decide to take, you should be particularly interested in all the specialty missile skills coming around the corner.
