(it’s a bad Pearl Jam ref. for those not “in the know”)

Most of the weekend was spent flying around, if not in EVE then I could usually be found somewhere over the SW US in FSX/Tileproxy.  I did log in very briefly to LOTRO, but mainly just to unload my bags and do a bit of crafting here and there.

In EVE, I’m still mining away quite happily and making some good ISK, but the weekend crowds were kind of annoying.  So I took my miners out for a shopping spree and got each of the two of them shiny new Drakes for mission running with my “Main’s” Hurricane.  I love the amount of fire power battle cruisers have, and they’re not too shabby on passive tanking either.  Now I just need to convince myself to actually go run a bunch of missions.  In fact, I don’t even think I have enough standing in Amarr space to get into any missions that allow battle cruisers – I think the biggest ship I can get into them are regular cruisers, but I’ll have to test that out this evening to see if that’s really the case.  I can’t remember – I know my battleships won’t fit through the gates, ‘cuz I did try that once, <smirk>.

There’s also a few “ded-space” complexes I’ve found, but again I think they’re in such high-sec zones that I can only fit frigates and maybe cruisers through the gates…  I just don’t think a battle-cruiser counts as a cruiser since they have substantially more fire power – again I’ll just have to test it out and see what happens.

In other news, I finally got my Christmas shopping started.  Only a few more folks to shop for and I’ll be done, so that will be nice – but I probably won’t get any more shopping done until the weekend, unless I can find goodies online – Amazon is my friend here, and I can actually get things shipped directly to my mom’s house so I won’t have to haul it up there next week 😀

I hope your week goes great – Enjoy!
