...that you lose track of pretty exspensive stuff?

I was at a family gathering with a lot of alcohol and time on my hands, and I started going through my assets with Neocom on my iPhone.

I was finding drake after drake that I forgot about, a few ravens, and then I find a rattlesnake that I don't even remember buying.

I know its not a machariel, but damn... A rattlesnake that I completely forgot about. I suppose its time to try out the sentries and the MJD fit.

Not to mention many that hundreds of millions worth of random crap (dancers and drugs) that I have accumlated over the years.

I was thinking to myself I should get a frieghter and haul it all to Jita, but then I realized it will probaly be a better idea to contract it all with courier missions with overpirced collateral on the 19th.

So anyone else have stories of their impossible to manage asset hoard?

Looking to talk on VOIP with other EVE players? Are you new and need help with EVE (welfare) or looking for advice? Looking for adversarial debate with angry people?

Not personally yet, but Goonwaffe once lost a station egg under a pile of technetium. Nobody even remembered where we were going to put it before we lost it. What?

I've almost crashed my eve client when i expanded all stations in asset list... I have just accepted that those items will never be recovered.

My goal is to have 1 unit of trit in every station in eve. I even ninjaed a few units of trit into goon stations.

At least it is stuff you just forgot about lol, there have been many of posts which retell absent minded trashing of shuttles and whatnot with expensive items in the cargohold lol. Personally I have a pretty good memory of where my expensive stuff is, because I try to keep it in a single station. And no, I am not undocking P.

I once podded myself by blowing a huge fart.

I could see where that could be a problem. Personally I do use shuttles to hold crappy BPC's that I want to get out of the way in the sation.

That said, I would never trash the shuttles, I am too much of a hoarder.

I have a hard time trashing those single peices of trit I've collected throughout the galaxy.

Nope.

Just "grey holes" randomly scooping up my crap and spitting it out somewhere else, when I'm on a bender. Pirate

I've got stuff stashed all over the place, the 500+ newbie frigates all named Taxi are the least of my worries.

In the beginning there was nothing, which exploded.

I tend to consolidate every few months or after our corp is done with our latest shitstorm of failures, whichever comes first. Amazingly, I usually come out ahead.

A professional astro-bastard was not available so they sent me.

I'm a pretty messy person in the real world, and its come to be reflected in EvE. I've got things scattered all around the galaxy. Annoyingly, all the cheap tat from various missions and whatnot are scattered around empire, with all the shiny expensive things spread randomly around nullsec. I can't even dock at these locations anymore. I've always meant to get around to flying to those regions, and slapping them on the market, but have never been bothered!

I still get frustrated when im forced to look through my assets for a particular item i've missplaced. Takes ages! Shocked

Post with your main, like a BOSS!

And no, i don't live in highsec.  As if that would make your opinion any less wrong.

I have only a vague idea that I own a vindicator at the moment. No clue where it's at.

It's nice to know that if you somehow go bust and lose all your stuff you'll have something useful lying around somewhere in new eden.

I name my newbie frigates/Shuttles "Primary"...

There is no such thing as a fair fight...

If your fighting fair you have automatically put yourself at a disadvantage.

At one point my Eve life I knew I had 2 carriers, I was sitting in one, but couldn't find the other one anywhere... A week later I found it in the Corp director hangar at the lowsec station I staged out of back then, how it ended up there is a complete mystery even now.

Apparantly I got multiple Carriers and a Kronos that I can't even fly yet :/

I don't keep track of things, too much effort for Zero's and Ones
