The day after I joined Clown College, of course I had this EVE thing down, right?

*insert wrong answer buzzer here*

Just like any n00b out there, I was minding my own business ratting away try to score the highly coveted Alloyed Tritanium Bars which at the time were worth a nice 500k ISK a pop. And feeling full of myself and my climbing skills (a whopping 1.2m SP at the time) I wanted to rat better rats so I went down from 0.7 systems to 0.6, then 0.5, then 0.4 obviously. So I entered Amamake and in a pure n00b moment even ASKED if people minded if I ratted XD. People did leave me alone for a bit; I had come into Amamake with nothing but ammo in my hold so everything showing up meant I had a bit of ratting time. Until Garmon said in Local "Alright, that's it!" and gave me a nice lesson in HTFU 101. As anybody losing the first ship of course I was miffed, but I admit I wasn't exactly clear where Low-sec started. I found out that day :)

But now looking at Garmon's avatar pic I spot a much hated monocle. Mmmmm... maybe I should have a rematch. What say you Garmy? Mano a mano, Ruppy vs Ruppy for old times' sake? I slap thee with my dirty cycling glove and throw it at thine feet...

Fly hard

PS: Hey Garmon, I may have been hating your guts at the time, and I'm sure you were laughing your head off. But seriously, this loss turned out to be an awesome lesson, and with better training at BOZO I came to realize that you had actually done a good thing. For this I must thank you immensely. I'm still waiting for you to pick up that glove though >:)

My first loss. I still giggle at the idiocy of it. I thought I was well prepared. Had joined the TLF and was cruising solo for those Amarrian scum.

It wasn't long before I joined a "real" corp and was taught some stuff.
