Geeking Out

Had a great EVE weekend! My wife let me geek out pretty much all day Saturday. Did a lot of mining and catching up from my hiatus the last few weeks.

Spent most of the morning mining. I replenished the stock of most all my minerals and sold what I had excess of. Tritanium is going for the highest I have ever seen it so I concentrated a lot of effort here. Made a small bundle but it was short lived.

I spent the afternoon identifying BPO's worth purchasing. So I bought about half a dozen BPO's in the late afternoon. ISK is easy come easy go I suppose... Threw most of the BPO's into ME research and then threw some of my older BPO's, which have already have ME, into PE research. I wish the ME research queues were as short at the PE ones. I've been wanting to get PE research done on my older BPO's for some time, it was nice to finally start this process.

Now I have a conflict though. As I mentioned a few days back I am less than a month from flying a Hulk so I really need to start saving for that. There are also some some expensive skill books I will be needing to buy here in a few weeks. I probably should not be spending the ISK like I did this weekend. But you need to spend ISK to make ISK.

More than I asked for

I was checking out my sales log last night and to my surprise there are people paying more for the stuff I am selling than I asked. Sometimes way more!

Is there some sort of mechanic in the game I have missed? When I look for goods to buy I open up the market window, search the item, and then figure out the cheapest price in a reasonable amount of jumps. I don't really see a way to pay more for an item than is asked unless you actually type it into the buy window.

Perhaps people are just so thrilled to be paying out ISK they feel obligated to tip me for the opportunity.

Sorry for the lack up updates recently but I had some last minute work related travels a few weeks back. Then as soon as I get home I was off to the Caribbean for a week long cruise. Did some Scuba diving and shopping. Saw some Mayan ruins too. Fun times! Anyway back now.

My first batch of manufacturing goods were all sold. Made a decent profit of around 15%. I stuck another few jobs in the oven. They will be ready for sale end of week. My main is still working towards her Hulk, under a month of skill training now. I can't wait.

My PvP alt is still skilling up learning. It's going to be a while before I do anything serious with him so nothing much else to report.
