  1. [EVE] Ottoelite reporting in

    Hey, nice to see you here after chatting a few minutes in public. I have only just recently transitioned from your line of work to building a small construction company. Sounds like your development gets more work than we did. Everyone just wanted us to do marketing, which I hate haha. Look forward to flying with you soon, and please let me know if you have any questions as you are just returning. I've only come back about 3 months ago now from a 3 year break, so I know the feeling!
  2. Code of Conduct

    Read, and agreed, and signed.
  3. Also, I didn't combine all quotes because I was on mobile working at a job site 😂
  4. Ahh nice I've had some really good analysts and some eye rollers. Lol. Monterey is freaking awesome, I hope you get it. And yeah, most linguist jokes are accurate. There's only a few of us that are socially normal and have skills other than language. I'm sure you've seen the wall huggers in your time. SWG was so awesome. Yeah Krayt rifles were pretty awesome. I had a BH bazaar and a bio engineering business. Man it was fun. Hey Gunny, what can I get for you and your girlfriends? our fantasy sports site was football, basketball, baseball, with golf to be added after about 6 months. We invented a new form of fantasy that was a mixture of over/under betting and fantasy. We basically brought lines into the fantasy part. We had a patent pending, but our major finder dropped out lol. honestly my partner was the master fantasy sports player, but I'd still be commissioner 😂 My my favorite ship...I really like sabres. The CC component is what I love about it. It's also versatile depending. It's won't solo and active tank Ishtar that's not AFK though, you can check my KB from this morning early for proof of that 💩
  5. I'm actually CST now, and I can usually dedicate time around 0100-0500 somewhere in there to play. Lately with my corp search I've been playing more and moving junk around to get ready. Weekends it's more flexible, so CtA and all that is easy for me on weekends. hmm favorite drink is probably Yoo-hoo. Used to be Chocolate Soldier, but never see that now. For alcohol, White Russian or something with Godiva chocolate liquor. For fun my wife and I watch probably 50% of every movie that comes out in theaters. Doesn't seem like a lot, but I'm including Indy films lol. We also camp with the kids a bit, and we do Crossfit together when we aren't working too late.
  6. hey no worries, I know we're all busy IRL! i originally wanted Arabic because I thought it was a cool area seeing how Christ was from hat area etc, and they wouldn't let me learn Hebrew 😂 I learned in the Air Force in 63 weeks and then stayed a little longer because I had a surgery on my foot and I taught brand new folks basic stuff to help the pass/fail rate Lol honestly I don't care about the MBA. Only did it to get more consulting jobs, well and I like to learn. Cool thing about grad school is you do your own research and learn what you want kinda, so I liked it. I might finish, but who knows?! I didn't understand PVP. It was rare that friends played with me. I got deployed in the middle of some play runs, which hurt. I always thought I needed tons of ISK to PVP, so I would set some goal and grind til I got bored, and burn out before I reached my goal lol. this time I came back, got tired of PVE and said "eff it, I'm going to PVP" and basically barely tatted for the last couple of months. I have been a game switcher in the past, so an good fit to me means that I have skills and personality that fit the thrust of the group. Then I want to actually enjoy batting when I am on, so it's not just an ISK grind. also need a place that understands family, because I've got little kids and a younger wife (trophy time) and I gotta appease all of them 😂
  7. 1. I like the shrimp taco from Fuzzys pretty well, although the democrat and the republican are good combos from torchys 😀 2. I wanted to explain when I prefer flour, but I realized I just like corn now lol 3. Living person would be a tie. My wife and my sister are my two favorite people, so I'd eat with both of them (although my sister would get a hippie vegetarian one).
  8. Hello Folks, Hirab here (Kevin IRL). Wanted to stop by and introduce myself. I am a father of 3 little rugrats (8, 5, 3), 2 of which live with me and my wife near Dallas, TX. My wife and I work together on a small construction company we recently founded. The road to this business was pretty goofy. After high school I waste a couple years being useless as a salesman of different wares. Decided I needed discipline and joined the Air Force as an Arabic Airborne linguist. Spent 10 years in the Air Force, and learned an Ethiopian language called Amharic when I moved over to Specops. I loved flying, it was really a blast. Except when I didn't fly often enough and threw up 6 times on a flight. That part was not fun. Left the Air Force to start a fantasy sports website with an Air Force friend, but didnt raise quite enough money. Changed the business to digital marketing & website design for a couple of years and worked on my MBA. Then junk happened 2 years in a row on my last semester that made me have to withdraw. 2 classes short. But the good news was the second time I dropped it was to form this little construction company, which we LOVE. Anyhow, 107 combat flights, 1100 hours as a crewmember, and the most valuable thing I learned was: I found my love for gaming while learning Arabic in Monterey, CA in 2003. Started with Star Wars Galaxies and became one of the top Bio Engineers on the Lowca server. Moved from that to WoW (vanilla) and back a few times and the tried Eve. It was fun, until I burned myself out on lvl 4 misisons. Then the next time on PVE in Null, then same again next time. Ergo: In my last week of thinking and deep soul searching with regards to Eve, I have realized that what I am really looking for is a gaming community. About a month and a half ago I left a nullsec corp that only ran from every neut because I knew I would get burned out. I wanted to PVP. I went to a PVP corp that was in rental space. I had a ton of fun. But the NC corp (Synda) that was funding it lost funding for the "partner" corp, and they also moved to Ghost Legion. So last weekend I woke up to new CEO, people having left back to Synda and Ghost Legion, others to a WH corp, and not even a corp email saying what was going to happen. I moved all my junk out to be safe, and finally got an email that the corp was closing. So that's where I am! I am looking for a place where I fit in. I'm not really concered about the True Sec or any of that. I have only been in smaller alliances that had no bearing on anything in Eve whatsoever, so I have no ties/enemies anywhere. Looking for a fresh start with good folks, and this group looks like a great one. I look forward to chatting with you all, Hirab
