Going to War

The war declaration against FINEG went active last night but I didn't have time to log in as I was busy with the twins and my wife. C'est la vie. I do hope to get an hour or more tonight as the MIL is coming for a visit and I'm watching the twins while my wife and her go to the movies and the mall.

Sigh. Where was Eve when I was in college and had lots of free time?

Anywhoo, in the lead up to war I've prepared some jump clones and ships in various locales so that if I log in and find out some FINEG pilots are on, I might have a chance to track them down.

In other news, I've been working on three skills at once for Kirith and I've gotten to the point where I've got one hour left on Leadership V and Shield Compensation IV and 23 hours on Caldari Carrier III. When those three are finished, I plan to spend a week doing Shield Upgrades V for easier fitting of Large Shield Extenders on my ships primarily. Then more Carrier skills.

Finally, I spent a good chunk of change this past week. Not only did I buy and outfit a Thorax for dueling with Mynxee, there were some other ship purchases including a trophy Worm frigate which I bought from a friend at a discount price because I love the Merlin hull and couldn't pass the chance to own it once more. I owned one a long time ago before I had access to tech II frigates but was so hard up for cash I sold it and regretted the move ever since.

And I also bought a Firbolg BPO that I slipped into a queue for ME research last night. In case you didn't know, the Firbolg is the Gallentean fighter used by carriers and while I don't intend to limit myself to one type of fighter (that would be foolish) I do hope to be able to supply them to myself and allies at cheaper than market prices. Its a long term investment as I'm thinking of training Derranna up for carrier construction. Its just a wild thought at this stage while I'm trying to figure out what to do with her, go combat training or more indy. We'll see. She's still working on her hacking and archeology skills in any case, followed by scan probing skills.

    It was called 'Trade Wars', and it was text-based... you noob!
