What about Blob?

There's an infinite number of monkeys outside who want to talk to us about this script for Hamlet they've worked out.

When last we spoke, I mentioned a bit about gang sizes and conveniently that brings me to my first real taste of unsatisfactory PvP that I had in EVE.  Being on the receiving end of a gate camp.  Please, join me on this tale of fail.

Calling for Backup

What I need... is a strong drink and a peer group.
-- Douglas Adams

So my life of Piracy got off to a bit of a rough start.  Not one to be deterred, I started looking for some fellow Pirates who might be willing to take me in and turn me into the ebil piwate I knew I could be.  By now I had read Skira's Guide to Piracy, and seen Wensley's post on the Pirate Academies of Eve Online.  Who else was there to choose but The Blood Money Cartel.

Rough Starts

Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experience of others, are also remarkable for their apparent disinclination to do so.

Gather round, it's time for a tale.  I'd like to say it's an epic tale of adventure, but then I'd be lying.  My life of Piracy by no means got off to an epic beginning.  I had about a month of play time, and less than 2 million skill points.

I died.

First (real) post

WFT-II was the only British software company that could be mentioned in the same sentence as such major U.S. companies as Microsoft or Lotus. The sentence would probably run along the lines of "WFT-II, unlike such major U.S. companies as Microsoft or Lotus ..." but it was a start.

There are plenty of other good EVE blogs out there.  I've read a few of them, and they played no small part in my decision to embark on a life of lowsec piracy.  This is the point where I'd link to some of my favorites...but you'd probably find they were better than mine and never come back.  So you're stuck with me for now.

First Post

The door was the way to... to... The Door was The Way. Good. Capital letters were always the best way of dealing with things you didn't have a good answer to.  
-- Douglas Adams

Yet another EVE Blog.  I've only started playing EVE Online about three months ago, which makes me the resident fucking new guy.  I played for about a month completing the tutorial missions and Sister's Epic Arc before deciding that it just wasn't me...I've since taken to a life of pew pew and ransoming as a lowsec pirate.  I captured the beginnings of my exploits on a Corporation forum, and the first posts you're likely to find here will be me reediting those posts to a more blog friendly format so you too can get caught up.  In the future I'll be using this space to keep up with what I've done, share it with others, and allow me to reflect on both my mistakes and victories.  Hopefully we'll have some fun along the way.
