Just not my day...

Many an ancient lord's last words had been, "You can't kill me because I've got magic aaargh."
-- Magic armour is not all it's cracked up to be.
(Terry Pratchett, Interesting Times)

It's not every day the Rizzels embarrass themselves totally, but today was such a day.

I had a few successful hunts, a fine catch of an Anathema, who then came back in a Legion, who I managed to point and hold down whilst El Brutor and I took it apart piece by piece.

So it looks like it might be a good days hunting... You'd think so?

There's a few gangs floating about, well, it is Sunday after all and when a small group with some frigates engage the Greeks in Gusandall, I warp in to see if I can pick off some frigates.

I decloak my Loki about 60km from the main group which includes two Armageddons.

I make a lot of mistakes, I shouldn't be fighting anything, I'm exhausted, not sleeping well and working too hard without a proper day off for four weeks, but needless to say I get tackled, and everything is on top of me in the blink of an eye, neuted and tackled it's a painful wait, my Loki, Achmed the Mad explodes, damn near everything drops and the shock of being so violently disconnected from the strategic cruiser gives me a severe concussion, and I lose some of the knowledge to fly the Loki properly.

And then Keira would get ganked shipping a replacement to Gusandall... For the life of me I can not figure out why she didn't just fly the bloody thing here already built .

A very expensive day and I'm glad I got a call from a friend that asked me to join her for some non-alcoholic drinks which calmed me down.

You've got RED on you needs you

Quote #103.

- "Do you know, humans think the world was made by a sort of big human?"
- "Get away?"
- "It took a week."
- "I expect it had some help, then,' said Dorcas.

I have an itch that needs scratching and I'd like to ask my readers if they'd be up for a little serious internet spaceships, a little NPSI action (Not Purple Shoot It)

Shoot me ingame mail or join NovaKane chat channel if interested, I shall be approaching one or two other heavy hitters for help once I have a PoA sorted, right now I just need to see what firepower I can bring to the table.

It's small scale but I do need help, I can't do this myself.

I still hate Plex Farmers

"The singers all loathe the sight of one another, the chorus despises the singers, they both hate the orchestra, and everyone fears the conductor; the staff on one prompt side won't talk to the staff on the opposite prompt side, the dancers are all crazed from hunger in any case..."

New Beginnings

The trouble with being a god is that you've got no one to pray to.
-- (Terry Pratchett, Small Gods)

The new exploration systems introduced recently have brought a new kind of brave pilot to low security space, not fighters, but explorers, looking to exploit the new systems and make a quick ISK.

A few changes to an old predators hunting practices were required but soon explosions were to be seen.
I'm not the only Pirate who does this, the locals have taken to it very quickly too, and I'm sure other low security Pirates are doing the same.

Entire constellations are probed, sites bookmarked and as soon as other probes are seen on scan the wait for the target to land ensues. I have no patience to play a hacking mini game, I'll rather let others do it and collect the rewards from their still smouldering wrecks.

Not had much energy or time to hunt as of late but will try harder soon™
