I’ve migrated to a hosted solution and I’ve sprung for a new domain. notannpc.space is where you’re going to find new posts and what not. Thanks for coming by and I hope to see you there!
Out there, among the stars…
Last night I took my carrier out to the 4x Low Temperature overlap. It’s roughly 1,000 light-years outside the bubble. Most of the night was spent stockpiling enough Tritium to to make sure I could get back to sell without having to mine extra. You often run into Tritium when mining Low Temp Diamonds so I’m pretty sure I’m set. Once I’ve gotten enough loot to come back and sell, I’m planning on stockpiling A LOT of Tritium for a long term expedition to…somewhere. I’m not sure. I want to hit Elite in exploration. Installing a Universal Cartographic module in Columbia would help that all happen faster and much safer. The carrier can only jump 500ly at once so it’ll likely be several jumps before I’m far enough out to start finding things that haven’t already been discovered. I want my name on shit that hasn’t been seen before.Continue reading “Mission Log 62”
So it’s been a while…
Hey there, I’m Matt. This is my blog. It’s generally about the games I play. The focus is space games, but it’s not totally exclusive to them. I’ve started and stopped doing this blog probably 4-5 times since the first post back in 2015. You can tell because you’d think a 5 year old blog would have more content on it.
With everything going on in the world, I feel like I need an outlet. I’m not sure if this is it, but I have it, it’s here, it has a history, and I mean… I still love games. I still love Elite Dangerous. So why not this? I’m trying to decide if I want to spring for hosting. I’d love more control over how it looks and, more importantly, I’d love to have the adds removed. I’m noodling on it as I’m incredibly cheap. The easiest solution would be to just upgrade my WordPress plan to something other than free…but that’s not the cheapest. The cheapest, however, means I’d have to deal with exporting and importing the blog to the new host. I don’t know. My hesitance is directly tied to my lack of commitment. I’m doing this right now with no real content plan or any idea of the future I want for this space. And that’s not necessarily a requirement or a bad thing… but if I’m going to seriously jump into this enough to shell out money, I feel like there should be some preliminary planning done. Of course, I could just leave it all like it is. The ads (as far as I can tell aren’t super intrusive) and the blog is functional. It doesn’t look terrible (not a designer). I’m just not sure. I just know I feel like doing something again. I’m in a pickle.Continue reading “The State of my Space”
Big updates. Both in game…and here!
Fleet Carriers are live in the game, mining is still a big money maker, and I’ve had a bunch of changes since the last time I updated the blog.
There’s so much here I’m not even sure where to begin. I’ve updated the about page with a new PC set up and I redid my ships of the line to be a little cleaner. There have been a bunch of changes in my life lately and with all the bologna in the world, I’m feeling like I need an outlet or something. Just something to make and put into the world? I’m not sure. But I figured I have this blog…it has a history, why not pick it back up again? But more on that later. I’m still figuring out what I want to do with this space.Continue reading “Mission Log 61”
I’m coming out of a Elite lull. Having only played a half a dozen times over the past couple of months, I didn’t really have many updates to make but after hitting a milestone yesterday, I realized that I played nearly 10 hours over last week. February and March saw me playing a few new things, going back to some old favorites, but nothing really latched and took up my time.Continue reading “Mission Log 60”
Housekeeping first! I’ve decided to let the cmdrmatt.space domain lapse. Chances are you’re getting to here from a direct link to the post on social media which I have to use because the site’s not hosted anywhere to actually take advantage of the domain. So I’m basically just paying to have a URL to redirect that never actually gets used. Also, the renewal comes at a time where I’m trying to cut back on frivolous spending…so there it is. It’s been cool to have over the last few years but it is what it is.
Now….on with the show.Continue reading “Mission Log 59”
I did not rest on my laurels over the new year break!
Well…I rested…but I played games. Mostly Elite. I need to start posting the playlist again cause I’m actually playing more than just Elite.Continue reading “Mission Log 57”
Greetings, weary travelers!
I hope everyone had a great Holiday however you celebrate it. And if you don’t, I hope you had a peaceful time of year!
Christmas is over and I spent some time with family and got a bunch of cool stuff! But I also got a good bit done in Elite! So let’s chat about that.Continue reading “Mission Log 56”
A little bit of tweaking to the site theme! It’s a free account so it’s limited in what I can do, but hey…it still looks decent.
I’ve made it a little over halfway to our final destination despite some issues with GPU drivers and some bugs that Frontier says they patched today. Then we can turn around and head back home.Continue reading “Mission Log 55”
