I started playing EVE Online 2006.06.22, so it's been a while. I was a member of a number of NPC corporations for a long time, doing mining, missions, and some industry before joining a corporation with some real life friends. Over time, they all dropped out of the game, and for a while I was the head of a one man corporation.
I started getting interested in T2 production. At first, I bought the materials in Jita, but that was a bit painful, so I started looking at the production supply chain. I stated doing some PI for moon goo, and picked up some reaction blueprints where I did ninja reaction processing in player stations in low sec where I could dock up. That wasn't very reliable, so I looked at what it would take to own a station, and that was not practical at all for a solo player.
I had been using the UNI Wiki for years, and while researching the T2 production pipeline, it occurred to me that EVE University would be a good fit, so I applied and was accepted 2019.03.06. At the start of the pandemic, I became inactive for about 3 months, and was reinstated 2020.06.18.
Prior to the pandemic, I worked in HSC Production helping with building ships and supplies for fleet operations. When I came back, the Mentor Program was recruiting, so I applied and was accepted.
Currently, I consider myself to be primarily an industrialist. I have 2 Omega accounts with 2 alts in the UNI, and 3 other alts in UNI allied corporations for things like hauling. I have mining operations in NSC, LSC, AMC, and HSC where mine with a porpoise boosting an alt in a mining barge, although I am currently in the process of relocating HSC, AMC, and LSC assets to Stacmon.
I do T2 production in NSC, along with reaction processing, moon mining, and planetary interaction. If an alt needs something in one of the other communities, I'll carry bpcs to them and build in place rather than haul completed goods through Null Sec. While things are building or reacting, I do exploration, a little wormhole diving, and mission running. Many of the things I make are for personal consumption with the surplus getting hauled to Jita for sale along with loot collected from rats, although several people know I am usually busy making things in NSC, so I take special orders as well.
When not doing all that, I also mentor new folks. 🙂
I'm not involved in PvP, nor do I take part in many fleet operations, although I do participate in structure bashes when someone foolishly war decs us.
