Since my last update, not a huge amount seems to have happened in eve. With all the alliances going into hibernation mode ready for the big sov mechanics update, everything seems to have gone on hold. The said there have been a couple of good fights. One of which resulted in over 100 kills for Hark! I think the total for this month ended up at around 150 kills. Overall, for a quiet month that’s not too bad at all!

Aside from Hark, once again my Trade character has been the only real other character, which has seen any sort of action and that action has continued the trend of being profitable. May brought in 1.15bn profit, which although it doesn’t match the amazing 3bn month I had in April, is still a healthy profit. Especially considering that, a large investment of 1.5bn into Harks equipment this month. Currently I am sitting pretty on 39bn total trade assets, a few million isk short of hitting the 40bn mark. When I think back to this time last year when I was really struggling to break the 25m mark it seems amazing how well it is all going this year. Of course hubris could well take its toll, and I don’t want to believe that this will last forever, but for now it make sense to me to enjoy the income while it lasts.

Despite my promises last month I still haven’t managed to re-open any of my old revenue streams, so I am entirely dependent on the trading character. There might be something coming up this month which helps a bit with that, however I think that any profit made will only be a side effect of the endeavour, but more on that in a bit.

It is annoying me that both of the posts I have made this month have been a bit negative towards eve. Both my post on SKiNS and on PvE  have really been looking at some of the worse side of eve’s progress of late. That really doesn’t reflect my feelings on the game at all, I think that it’s just that it’s far easier to write something about a negative than it is to go out and find a positive. However I intend to change that this month (relying on nothing majorly negative happening of course).

Which brings me neatly into the next endeavour that I will be working on for this blog. A little while ago, my work asked me to help create some training videos for some of our products in order to move some of our users away from using 1on1 training sessions for some of the more mundane aspects of our work. Because of this, we purchased a professional grade microphone and some video editing software for me to use on my home computer. I’m sure you can see where this is heading. Over the next few months, I am going to start experimenting with a new format of content for the blog, in which I will attempt to produce some audio/video content in addition to the current written content. I would be lying if I said that I wasn’t worried about the amount of additional work this might take (and indeed if I can support such a load). However, at the same time I am not a man to look a gift horse in the mouth, so I am game to give it a go.

Expect to see some new formatted content coming out over the next month, let me know what you think.
