[OOC] Hardware woes

Posted in OOC with tags , on March 31, 2010 by thezerion

Been unable to play regularly the past week or so. I recently built a new PC thanks to my tax return, and had a bit of a computer meltdown. A corrupt install of Windows 7 caused my system to crash and become unstable. Ended up having to install an old IDE hard drive to boot from in order to reformat my new hard drive and start over with a 32-bit install of Vista, which means that I’m only able to utilize 3 of the 4 gigs of RAM installed.

My system’s stability seems to have returned, and I just got done re-organizing my bookmarks for the 5th time this month, so here’s hoping that it sticks this time. I’m anxious to try out my new Harpy and also work on my practical scouting skills for future fleet ops.


Dusting off the cobwebs

So, after a short hiatus, I have returned to the EVE universe. I’ve been flying with White Talon Enterprises for a little over a month and a half now, and I’m enjoying it immensely. My old thirst for pvp was never satisfied, so after a brief stint in the Open Univeristy for Celestial Hardships to help get my head back in the game, I’ve moved back to The Forge and set up shop with WTE.

Now, I have a solid plan for my skills, I’ve finished my learning skills, I can fit T2 small hybrids, and my support skills are looking way better. I’m still working to get over the adrenaline surge and jitters that accompany pvp combat, and I’m getting better at fitting ships myself and knowing what to fly when, and how much I can afford to lose. My career kill total has reached 9, unfortunately none of them are solo, which I’m hoping to change soon. I have a pretty wicked Merlin fit now, complete with a MSE, which I think should handle itself fairly well. I took one out for a Corp roam recently with some cruisers and battlecruisers. Unfortunately, anxious for a fight, we fell for some obvious bait from Pandemic Legion, who quickly laid some smack down upon us. Flying with a pair of Guardian logistics ships backing them up, there was no way we could have taken them without some logistics of our own. Several of my fleetmates didn’t make it out of there with their ships intact, myself included. Oh well, next time, PL!
