Dear Jivane,
If you would like to attend one of our training seminars "lowsec for carebears", let me know and I will forward you an application. It's excellent training for pilots in all security status spaces. No one should expect to be safe and no one should fit their ships believing they will be safe unless you are willing to take the risk. You rolled the dice, and you lost the dice roll. I am sorry, that's my official stance.

Let me know if you would like me to forward an application for one of our training sessions for "lowsec for carebears"

To: Escoce,

Hi Escoce,

I was attacked by a CEO of a corporation within your alliance today. From what I can see, your alliance is trade based, and I was suprised to be attacked.

Are you able to arrange compensation?

I am obliged to send you this email prior to lodging a request to have alliance/corp flagged as KOS within Providence.

What do you think?

Been sick

My family and I have been very sick lately, starting with each of my kids, then my wife, and finally me with pnuemonia, so there hasn't been a lot of eve activity at all.

The only things I have been up to are skill queue management, some light weight trading, and easy collection runs of product that has built up over time.

I missed the last blog banter, but I think I will try and get it rolling late anyway. In essense the only new plans I have for this year are developing the alliance I accidentally created in December with the help of Casiella Truza and the other CEOs who will help take charge. An alliance cannot be run by one person alone and I will be relying on them to step up and take charge of the different operational aspect of alliance management from op organization to coopertive efforts in trade and industry. I'll have more to say on this shortly after we have had a chance to have our first real summit of alliance leaders.

Back to School

So I am taking 'ENG Writing Composition I' which I don't have credits for. They didn't want me to register classes until they got my transcripts from the University of Miami, but was like look I know what I took and I am not willing to waste my time and money so it's ok, just sign my in. So he wrote me in for a math class for 4 semester hours, and I don't remember 1st year courses being 4 credits, he said it's a non credit course to prepare me for higher math. I am incredulous. I scored well in trig, but not so good in algebra, so you want me to take a non credit course? Good god, I finally said, I'll just take the exam again, I have a stack of professional certs a few inches thick that says o can prepare. I mean I decided to do this all in like one day and didn't have any prep time, have perfect scores in all sections except one and you say I am not ready? No thanx, I'll just take something in english and take the exam over thanx.

So I start school again on the 18th, my transcripts should be approved by then and I can take whatever the hell I want in the summer. Maybe I'll go back and add a second class for the first semester.

Going Back to School

So yeah, I am going back to school, and I don't mean studying refinery efficiency or corporate management. I mean real life school. I just completed the Compass exam which is like the ACT exam for placement. Did very well in all sections except college algebra. Gah! When I took my SATs 20 years ago I scored a 1480, but I guess when one doesn't practice algebra one really does forget. I even did better on the trig section than the algbra section. I guess it's cause I remember Soh Cah Toa.

I am waiting to speak to an academic advisor to pick classes. Just going part time with one or two classes until I get comfortable with a larger course load.

Wish me luck!
