People who are rather more than six feet tall and nearly as broad across the shoulders often have uneventful journeys. People jump out at them from behind rocks then say things like, "Oh. Sorry. I thought you were someone else."

Has it been three years already? Damn it must be, can barely believe my eyes.
Time sure does fly when you're having fun and things are looking up.
We put a POS into reinforced on Thursday and it came out early this evening, a large Caldari tower with 6 mobile labs, 5 advanced mobile labs and a single experimental lab. A very nice haul if we are successful.
I came in this evening around the time it was due to drop out of reinforced and inquired as to what was going down. I was informed they had a defence fleet consisting of a few battleships, a few carriers, a dreadnought and a few unknown. Mean Coalition were out in force along with some business associates based in Hrondedir.
AsssassinX warped in with his Armageddon to see if they would fight and it turns out they did, we warped in with a sizeable fleet and got the remote reps onto Asss, just in time too as they had engaged with three armageddons, a Harbinger, a Raven and a Thanatos carrier. There was another Thanatos in the shields of the POS but it was game on.
Asss did a great job calling primaries and they fell one by one until just the stricken Thanatos was at our mercy, he was webbed and under severe fire. The combined fleet carried massive DPS and it wasn't long before the Carrier split apart.
All our attentions turned to the POS now and we engaged with our conventional fleet.
After a few minutes the decision was made to bring dreadnoughts onto the field and Keira undocked the Moros. Once the dreads entered siege the POS wasn't long for this universe and soon it exploded, the fleet springing into action to unanchor the labs and scoop them into waiting haulers.
A very slick operation.
NovaKane Incorporated turned three last month and as is becoming customary I totally missed it. But it has been one helluva ride. From small beginnings to capital operations, as my friend Tessa Vaako would say "The future is exciting"
