"... wait, you can move that little module circle thingy? AND arrange overview by range and name?"

Yeah. This one.

Oh, and Cia, IIRC, when I met you, you were also warping to every gate at 15km...because you thought you had to use the autopilot to travel.

True. But I was only 3 days old at the time, so it stands out as less of a ::facepalm:: moment.

lol yeah, I remember those days.  I don't remember who first linked me to a good "Don't mix tanks!" article, but it changed my EVE life forever for the better

This is a forum on steroids tbh. The rate at which content worth reading is being generated could get you pregnant.

EVE-Mon's Reposition Window Feature. Actually minimizing EVE breaks my computer for some reason, but with windowed mode and the right settings in EVE-Mon, I can flick back and forth with impunity :D

AHAHAHAHAhahahahaha, haha, no it doesn't.

"... wait, you can move that little module circle thingy? AND arrange overview by range and name? God damnit."

Heh, yeah there is actually a fair amount you can do with the UI. Doesn't compare at all to a certain other game in customization, but yeah...HUD module circle thingy can go left and right and can also be put at the top of the screen. You can also move the targets around and flip them vertical to horizontal.

My current UI config does both actually: http://i42.tinypic.com/213f0py.jpg
You wanna do me a favor and tell me what the discussion in OOC was about? Looks interesting.
The "stack all" button.

I'd been living in Providence for months, and was meticulously stacking each type of loot by dragging one item on top of the next.

Over.

And over.

And over again.

Emailed you a copy of the log Ashar, it was looong and I'm feeling lazy enough to not want to re-read the thing to remember the context. :P

I've had too many cases of this...I think others can name instances better than me...can't recall any atm, but I'll be sure to think of some.

Thanks, Misan. Apparently, it was just some politics/culture crap.

Not a personal one, but one I found quite amusing. A ex-corpmate of mine had been playing for 3+ years or so, and recently discovered that cargo containers can hold more m3 than they take up in the hold.

He was SO excited, "I"m going to carry one of these around all the time!"

Overheating is probably the most important skill to have in PvP.  Whether its an "oh shi-" moment or you want to have your Legion out damage the rest of the gangs pvp battleships.  At least once overheat will save your ship.  I commonly find it most useful when solo nomming in c3 and I catch a bad angle on a multiple bs sleeper spawn.  A couple overheated repper cycles and my billion ISK legion is still in my hanger instead of floating in space  :lol:

A couple of points with overheating:
Buy the Nanite interfacing and Nanite operation books to maximize effectiveness.  Also I can't confirm but do faction modules get a better nanites used/amount repped rate?

Keeping in mind that sometimes when telling it to dock it doesn't actually dock. Yeah...I think I've probably killed a few people who thought they had docked and went afk for dinner or whatever.

Been killed a couple of times doing just that.

Some stations are especially prone to dropping you slightly out of docking range, which causes the error. Top Brutor station in Rens for example, caught quite a number of FW jockeys trying to dock there.

This. It took losing a mission raven in high-sec to an FDU pilot who was a million miles behind enemy lines to drive this home. I put him in structure - if I'd been able to overheat, he'd have died and I'd have kept my Raven.

I grabbed the skill book later that day.

Ardishapur is not spelled ArdishaRpur, and Aritcio is no longer the same man as Articio.

When you're trying to be any kind of prominent political figure or just make like you know the lore well enough to write it...well.

Yeah. ^__^
