First I get podded in Minmatar space by a couple of Privateer Alliance battleships - which wouldn't have been nearly as irritating if I hadn't lost three blueprints worth 1.5 million ISK along with the shuttle - and then I get jumped by a bunch of Anarchy Empire (LOL wut?) Crow interceptors while I'm out peacefully ratting to raise some cash for a spare cruiser or two. Well, between the insurance payout on the Caracal and today's sales of junk and missiles, I didn't have much trouble raising the money, but when I went into Minmatar space and started fitting out my new Moa, guess who I ran into? Yup. Privateer Alliance. Since the Moa had only its shields and an afterburner fitted, I decided the better part of valor was to stay inside the station and log off. I can always come out and collect the remaining modules I need after the PA guys get tired of hanging around waiting for me to fly out and straight into their guns. In the meantime, I transferred a million ISK to my alt and sent him forth in a shuttle to pick up replacement blueprints, which he did, leaving them contracted to my main character in Konora. So if I get out of the Thukker Mix factory at Eram 5-2 sometime in the next couple of weeks, I'll be all set to expand my ammunition empire. Yay.

That wasn't all I did today. I managed to get some cleaning up and cooking done: baked some shrimp and ate it over rice. Worcestershire sauce goes better with shrimp than I would have thought, especially with the Parmesan cheese, garlic and butter in there working away. I also found my missing library books, which is good since some of them are extremely overdue by now. :(

The weather's been nice enough that I've been keeping the windows open most days, and cracking the one in the bedroom overnight. In other good news, I'm finally done with the Keflex and the cellulitis appears to be done as well. Still going in on Wednesday to talk to the docs about the intravenous antibiotic nuking process which should hopefully wipe out any lingering opportunistic bacteria and keep me reasonably healthy for more than a couple of months at a time. We'll see.

I spent a fair amount of time last night screwing around with getting the fitting on my Moa right. I had too much gun and shield, and was draining the capacitor down to nothing after just two or three rats.

I reduced down to three dual 150mm's and a 200mm scout hybrid rails, and switched to passive shields, and it seems to be pretty well balanced. I also just noticed it has 15m3 of dronebay, will stick a couple T2's in there...

I should get the Crane by Sat night, and will see about training more on gun skills after that... (although more and more I'm thinking I want to move to a droneboat...

Mine's currently a dog's breakfast of modules, a wretched compromise between a Goon template intended for L2 mission running and whatever I could scrape together in Minmatar space. I'm probably going to refit it with a couple of assault launchers for close range frigate/destroyer trashing and use medium railguns for sniping; not sure yet what I'm going to put in the mids and lows, but that tungsten plate has definitely got to go. I need MOAR POWER.

I also need to train up my drone skills. It's dumb to have the empty bay and not make use of the additional dps.
