Priva-Tears! or crying Mommy when the noobs won't play your way.

The privateers are threatening Dire Revenge after Kel's latest evil plan. Maybe they're planning on hiding from us even further away and undocking even less? After 7 weeks of war, that they're still losing, now they have to pay a billion isk per week. Thanks to their less than stellar math skills, even their own COAD post mocks them "Billions for 1 day of peace?" The only billions involved is on their new war dec fee.

BC Hastings apparently cannot stand the fact that every time the Privateers have fought us, they end up losing the war. All their claims about us not teaching PVP, or teaching blob warfare or murdering poor helpless gankers is just window dressing for BC's personal sense of failure, shame and inferiority. The longer this goes on, the deeper he digs the hole. He knows we will not pay his ransom demands, he knows he can't really win, he knows he looks like a buffoon and idiot to the rest of eve and no amount of alt-smacking on the forums can save him.

We should have pity on BC though, he likely needs professional help to overcome his "true" age of 3 years old. Except that I have no pity for him or any of his ilk. I got lots of contempt, when I bother to even notice him.

A long war, vacation and stolen kills

Stole a few more kills recently, been having good luck on getting in the last hit on a few targets. It irks Sabre to no end. I can live with that, he needs a bit of poking.

The war is dragging on but I'm not worried. The Privateers seem unable or unwilling to really push the issue and we continue to beat them by the only measuring stick we care about. This past week three more corps dropped from their Alliance and I get the impression this trend will continue. Alot of students have left, but we've still got enough to crush the Privateers when needed. More importantly, we're getting back to our roots, electronic warfare.

I sort of pity the next fool to dec us after this war ends. We've grown a VERY hard core of capable PVP pilots. They may not have tons of SP yet, but the point is they've experience now, alot of it and that means far more than SP's will.

Was on vacation for a couple of weeks, helping my dad build a playhouse for my niece and nephew...though considering it's built to pretty much house standard, with normal height ceilings, real shingles and a porch with swing, it's a bit beyond most playhouses. Still, nailguns are fun, but murder on the hands if you have arthritis like me. I'll snap a few pics of it next time I go home.

Saturday I went to practice rifle for the upcoming rifle match. Did 20 rounds standing, 20 rapid fire sitting and 20 rapid fire prone. Used the rat gun for that (Bushmaster CMP competition rifle). Then switched and did 32 rounds of prone and standing with the M-1 Garand. More fun but not as nice. Course, it's not a competition rifle but it's fun.

Now I think I'm going to go eat some blue bell. Best flavor I could find was Mint Chocolate Chip, but I'll manage;)
