You found the friendliest gaming & tech geeks around. Say hello!
Still playing EVE.
Rolling on a freebie account since I don't have much time to play. I manufacture things and have a small trading corporation. Went from having 187m ISK (the in-game currency, aka being "space poor") to just over 1B in liquid assets over the past few months by buying low and selling high. All it takes is logging in for about 15 minutes a few times a week.
Because I'm on a free account, I'm limited to the number of items I can buy and sell at any given time, so finding ways to reinvest my earnings and still earn a decent profit is getting harder due to the limited volume of deals going on where I'm currently at. It's a fun challenge to have. I went from trading cheap stuff like ammo and basic equipment to flipping higher dollar small and medium ships and high-dollar ship equipment.
When does competitive become anti-competitive?
Nobody faults you for supporting small business. But I do take issue with the narrative that there's a war between a big, evil corporation and the small, noble, wholesome craft brewer who struggles under oppression every day. Because the way these stories read to me is a big business is making smart moves to stay relevant in a changing industry and naive small brewers get upset when they learn businesses can't be treated like a hobby and nobody is going to cut you any slack when you're fighting for a piece of a $23.5B TAM.
No order implied. Didn't want to double down on artists either. I'm with you @Linc in that I much-prefer the full album experience.
And a special Palme d'Icrontic to Jamie XX - We're New Here, the remix of Gil Scott Heron's "I'm New Here." Jamie xx's music (and subsequent DJ sets and BBC Radio 1 residencies) almost overshadow The XX despite being a side-project.
If you haven't setup an account on Discogs, I'd recommend it. It's a great tool for managing your collection and wantlist, and if you're looking for hard-to-find stuff it can help you with purchasing it from other members. Here's my link:
Pretty much if they press something, it's on my list.
I'm also looking for the following on vinyl:
Miles Davis - Kind of Blue
Bedhead - Transaction de Novo
Sneaker Pimps - Becoming X (omg so expensive)
Sneaker Pimps - Bloodsport
Sneaker Pimps - Splinter
I love buying from http://www.ebreggae.com/ when there's not a local store around that has what I want.
