Accidentally off-lining a fully operational POS tower instead of the one module I wanted to off-line.

In W-Space.

With hostiles in system.....Oops

Here I used to have a sig of our old Camper in space. Now it is disregarded as being the wrong format. Looking out the window I see one thing: Nothing wrong with the format of our Camper! Silly CCP......

Several.

The one that sticks out in my mind though is, when trying to leave Tenerifis after my corp was kicked from Kadeshi for low numbers during primetime, I was in a rush and hauled all my stuff that was shipped to a low-sec staging area in a t1 hauler through low-sec to the nearest high-sec. It was only like 5 or 6 jumps and I didn't see a soul coming from HS. On the way back a single Sabre appeared and my first year and a half of EVE got either destroyed or looted.

I learned my lesson =(

Went into a wormhole to help a friend grind some isk in 900mil Gila, I went in with a Gila, it never came back out.
Damn cloaked T3 Cruisers... If I had my full tank equipped I would have wiped the floor with those pricks... Ah well.

Also warping into home system during a wardec without checking with corp. mates if there were any war targets in system, after helping a friend... Cost me dearly too.

Helping a friend in low sec. lost me my Rokh, appearantly his Corp. mates didn't care I was there helping their Corp. mate, I was just an easy kill.

Every time I lose my ships it is because I help someone, so I just don't help people anymore, you need help? Get a better ship, don't come to me, I like my ship!

I miss having ISK.

Two ugly things stand out:

Didn't log on for a week, ran my pos out of fuel in Hi-Sec and someone flew away with and Obelisk crammed with a billion in loot that my lazy ass left floating in the force field.



Put a Plex on the market; meant to ask for 850 million........and missed a ******* zero in the price.




Meh.....

I was scanning in lowsec like I always did back then and I was pretty drunk. I forgot I was in my HG slave clone and I SWEAR TO GOD I clicked dock but I guess I just clicked warp. Anathema sitting on station in lowsec... got blown up and I got podded.

Not today spaghetti.

You can get CCP to change it to a capital letter, I had the same problem until I put in a ticket to get my S made into a capital one.

Dumbest thing I ever did in eve was start a trial account in 2009 just to see what EVE was all about.

I even remember saying to myself - 'PAY MONTHLY TO PLAY A GAME!!! - NEVER!!!'



On that note, kept telling myself I would never use Alts, now I have 4 accounts.

And on top of that, I continuously pay month to month, thinking 'just in case' and I haven't let a sub lapse more than once in 5 years.
