A rookie loses his cherry and he likes it......

Being a pirate can be fun but I do miss high-sec (I know, I know, blasphemy!) as I love reading Nexa's antics with TRAPS and her postings on EVE-Pirate. Being solo also is hard but a friend of mine has recently moved some of his corp and resources close to me and it's fun flying with him and his corp mates. In fact, one of his corp mates is a decent scan prober and my mate V has given me his permission to ask for help whenever I require on the proviso that I don't render all his corpmate into blinkies!

So expect some more antics as I try to bust open those mission runners in Todi! Being able to rat in 0.1 and with no podding means that my more security rating conscious friends can maintain a veneer of respectability!

However, I loved it when one of my readers (christ, I have a readership now?) signed up to EVE and went down the darkside. We chatted over the last couple of weeks but he then posted this killmail with a note:

Thanks Flash, I didn't expect a kill would feel THIS good, here's the kill mail

All I can say is, welcome to EVE.

Xu'Chuang then joined a gang of independent contractors and went hunting. He was bait and he found it fun.

God bless him!

The night ended with a bunch of us camping Havoc Inc in a station - to be honest, I am crap at camping and we didn't get a kill - just a lot of smack. No biggies though.

Right back to work....and oh, Xu'Chunag. Take a bow....
