1) No Fiction Friday this week or next. I'm watching the twins as the youngest carebear is at a pre-op appoint for surgery next week to fix a prematurely fused skull suture, and while I will be at work this afternoon I will be far too busy at lunch to write something. Next week is the surgery on Wednesday with a three day hospital stay so blogging will be non-existent altogether.
2) Got another load of ships up to null sec this morning before downtime. A Megathron, Rook, and PvE Tengu for me (sold some extra assets last night that gave a nice boost in ISK so went with the Strategic Cruiser), and I brought up a couple Falcons for a corp mate. I have one more ship on my "need" list, specifically a sniper HAC (thinking Eagle) but it will wait until I find a need to go back to Empire.
I'm really enjoying being back in the character and ships I'm used to. I enjoyed trying out the Minmatar ships in Kla'strit, and the Maelstrom is a PvE beast, but my heart will always be Caldari and railguns, with a sprinkling of Gallente for flavour.
3) I've been all over the skill training since completing the Tech II sentry drones. The alliance has a list of minimum reqs for cap pilots and I'm lacking in Remote Capital Hull repair and Triage mode for carriers which needs Logistics V; but I want to get a couple advanced implants installing in my carrier/supercarrier jump clone including a Talisman Omega (Cybernetics V) and a Siege Warfare Mindlink (Cybernetics V and Siege Warfare Specialist V). So I'm biting off for the implants first, then the alliance cap requirements, then Gallente Cruiser V. I keep putting those Tech II Gallente cruisers off but I will get them! Someday...
Meanwhile the alt is training for Covert Ops frigs for extra good probing, then more Planetary Interaction skills.
4) Labour Day weekend here in Canada coming up. We're not going anywhere but still will be busy hanging out at home and doing housework and playing with the kids. Quality time is important, eh? So podcast recording might be delayed or put off until Sept 13.
5) Count the freighters!
Taken at a gate near Jita. My alt is the Fenrir at the bottom.
