[ 2018.01.21 18:32:06 ] Lasairiona Raske > /emote lightly clears her throat. “Good evening, ladies and gentlemen and welcome to day two of SeyCon.”
[ 2018.01.21 18:32:19 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote slips in quietly.
[ 2018.01.21 18:32:25 ] Mizhir > /emote notices the time and quickly finds a seat for herself
[ 2018.01.21 18:32:38 ] Ayallah > /emote finds herself a seat as well
[ 2018.01.21 18:33:04 ] Miyoshi Akachi > /emote after taking a drink from the bar she finds a seat.
[ 2018.01.21 18:33:11 ] Aria Jenneth > /emote quietly gets up and makes her way towards Luna*
[ 2018.01.21 18:33:51 ] Lasairiona Raske > Today’s presentations will focus mainly on exploration, and afterwards, you are all invited to attend the Donor Ball in the Eram Ballroom.
[ 2018.01.21 18:34:11 ] Aria Jenneth > *she curtseys– rather more easily than yesterday; she’s traded the ungainly experiment with heels for her usual flats*
[ 2018.01.21 18:34:52 ] Lasairiona Raske > First, I would like to welcome again to the stage Jaret Victorian, with a bit of media outreach. *She steps back and claps*
[ 2018.01.21 18:35:02 ] Francophobia > /emote claps politely.
[ 2018.01.21 18:35:18 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote flashes Aria a smile. She is dressed in a white and black business dress. She claps for Jaret.
[ 2018.01.21 18:35:21 ] Jaret Victorian > /emote gats on the scene from backstage “Thank you Lasairiona!”
[ 2018.01.21 18:35:37 ] Aria Jenneth > *… then, without speaking, heads for a pair of seats that can be reached without disturbing too many people*
[ 2018.01.21 18:35:40 ] Jaret Victorian > Welcome to the second day of the Seycon YC120!
[ 2018.01.21 18:35:53 ] Jaret Victorian > It’s nice to see that the hall is nearly full and our broadcast is barely handling all the viewers –
[ 2018.01.21 18:36:13 ] Jaret Victorian > Good to see that people want to learn, they express interest in new knowledge and not only come here in person, but watch this live from their couches even on remote null-sec colonies.
[ 2018.01.21 18:36:36 ] Jaret Victorian > Speaking of which!
[ 2018.01.21 18:36:48 ] Jaret Victorian > /emote links an image
[ 2018.01.21 18:37:18 ] Jaret Victorian > What started as Seycon Live in YC118 now lives on as ARC Studios.
[ 2018.01.21 18:37:44 ] Jaret Victorian > It’s been a long adventure from a small rented production studio to multiple offices all over the Empire space and we are happy to have all our audience here – we are nothing without you.
[ 2018.01.21 18:38:08 ] Jaret Victorian > /emote links an image
[ 2018.01.21 18:38:19 ] Jaret Victorian > It’s not always been like that – today I would like to take you on a short journey with fun and previously unseen concepts that we went through during our establishment.
[ 2018.01.21 18:38:45 ] Jaret Victorian > /emote chuckles “And before you ask – yes, these are real things that we quite seriously schemed over”
[ 2018.01.21 18:39:03 ] Jaret Victorian > /emote links an image
[ 2018.01.21 18:39:23 ] Jaret Victorian > /emote nods “As simple as that. It took a great deal of imagination to start from a tiny doodle, and yet we are blessed to have all the creative talents who work with us today –
[ 2018.01.21 18:39:35 ] Che Biko > /emote glances across the faces in the image from left to right, but after reaching the left, looks back to the hosts pictu5red on the right.
[ 2018.01.21 18:39:39 ] Lasairiona Raske > /emote chuckles a bit from backstage.
[ 2018.01.21 18:39:47 ] Jaret Victorian > /emote grins
[ 2018.01.21 18:39:49 ] Jaret Victorian > our Hosts, reporters, camera crews, designers and writers.”
[ 2018.01.21 18:40:06 ] Jaret Victorian > /emote links an image
[ 2018.01.21 18:40:20 ] Jaret Victorian > Now this is one of the first concepts for our Archives.
[ 2018.01.21 18:41:12 ] Che Biko > /emote smiles thinly.
[ 2018.01.21 18:41:15 ] Jaret Victorian > /emote wipes a fake tear “I almost feel like I’m showing my family album”
[ 2018.01.21 18:41:25 ] Jaret Victorian > /emote links an image
[ 2018.01.21 18:41:49 ] Jaret Victorian > /emote grins “Turned out quite alright I’d say, and we even brought it in motion following the Kyonoke Crisis”
[ 2018.01.21 18:42:24 ] Jaret Victorian > We learned quite a deal from the professionals, our colleagues over at The Scope, and we want to extend a warm thank you to them, especially Ret Gloriaxx
[ 2018.01.21 18:43:03 ] Jaret Victorian > Right now we are expanding our infrastructure and signing contracts with remote colonies for broadcast rights.
[ 2018.01.21 18:43:29 ] Jaret Victorian > Our main focus, still, remains direct streaming via GalNet, making handpicked historic episodes available at all times via VODs.
[ 2018.01.21 18:43:50 ] Jaret Victorian > Our main goal still remains to deliver fair, unbiased and impartial news straight from the source and right to our audience.
[ 2018.01.21 18:44:14 ] Jaret Victorian > Speaking of which! I believe our time permits a short Q&A session and I’d like to get right to it while we still have some of it left!
[ 2018.01.21 18:44:34 ] Jaret Victorian > Just rise your hand if you have a question and I’ll do my best to answer your questions in order
[ 2018.01.21 18:45:47 ] Jaret Victorian > Managers tell me we have a question from the stream now – “was it scary for your crew back at H4-RP4”?
[ 2018.01.21 18:47:00 ] Jaret Victorian > Looking back it was definetly scary – still Cyrillian tried his best to turn it into a slight comedy when he interviewed people
[ 2018.01.21 18:47:50 ] Mizhir > /emote raises her hand
[ 2018.01.21 18:48:03 ] Jaret Victorian > /emote points to Mizhir “yes?”
[ 2018.01.21 18:49:15 ] Mizhir > It appears that The Scope has throttled down their activity when it comes to Capsuleer Related broadcasts. Do you intend to step up your activity to fill that demand, or do you feel you have already met saturation?
[ 2018.01.21 18:50:36 ] Jaret Victorian > There’s always a potential for us to grow, and we feel like our recent cooperation with “The Galactic Hour” and “This Is The State” was a good step in this direction
[ 2018.01.21 18:50:58 ] Mizhir > Do you have plans for further expansion?
[ 2018.01.21 18:51:54 ] Jaret Victorian > We have been going over ideas of expanding into new formats, text, short videos, and expanding ito social media, so if people have any ideas right now, we can take those into consideration
[ 2018.01.21 18:53:09 ] Mizhir > excellent. Thank you for your answers
[ 2018.01.21 18:53:09 ] Jaret Victorian > We’ve been in talks with famous stellar photographer Razorien who, it looks like, manages to sneak into major engagements and stay there long enough
[ 2018.01.21 18:53:24 ] Jaret Victorian > /emote nods “Thank you for your question!”
[ 2018.01.21 18:54:44 ] Jaret Victorian > Alright, looks like we hit all the major points for now. Thank your for coming! The presentations will resume in around 6 minutes
[ 2018.01.21 18:54:47 ] Che Biko > /emote takes on an uncomfortable expression, lets out a soft grunt, and starts to massage his left biceps as he bends and stretches his arm and fingers.
[ 2018.01.21 18:55:17 ] Jaret Victorian > /emote bows slightly and walks off stage to camera crew
[ 2018.01.21 19:05:11 ] Jaret Victorian > /emote gets on stage “Our next presentation is delivered by one of our guest experts from Signal Cartel who made his job to document all about scanning cosmic signatures and make a science out of it”
[ 2018.01.21 19:05:29 ] Jaret Victorian > Please welcome on stage, Po Huit with “Mechanisms of Exploration”
[ 2018.01.21 19:05:38 ] Jaret Victorian > /emote claps and welcomes Po on stage”
[ 2018.01.21 19:05:39 ] Po Huit > /emote makes his way to the podium
[ 2018.01.21 19:05:41 ] Ayallah > /emote smiles weakly but it does not last long. Pushing her hair out of her face she sits up to straighted the dress around her hips, licking her upper lip as the next presentation starts.
[ 2018.01.21 19:05:42 ] Francophobia > /emote applauds briefly.
[ 2018.01.21 19:05:48 ] Parious MeHoff > /emote claps.
[ 2018.01.21 19:05:57 ] Po Huit > /emote glances nervously at his notes. He is clearly a bit uncomfortable in front of an audience.
[ 2018.01.21 19:05:57 ] Jenna Sojik > /emote claps.
[ 2018.01.21 19:06:05 ] Hetu Hegirin > /emote leans back in her seat, applauding softly
[ 2018.01.21 19:06:11 ] Che Biko > /emote halts working on his arm momentarily to politely clap fo Po.
[ 2018.01.21 19:06:21 ] Maira Blackfire > /emote Looks up and applaurs, then packs her datapad away
[ 2018.01.21 19:06:32 ] Po Huit > /emote begins to read his presentation out loud.
[ 2018.01.21 19:06:41 ] Po Huit > “I am honored by the invitation of ARC to talk to you today about ‘Mechanisms of Exploration: Probe Scanning’.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:06:43 ] Aria Jenneth > … *claps politely, but then slips out of her seat and picks her way down to Che, staying low*
[ 2018.01.21 19:06:50 ] Po Huit > “A draft paper describing this work is available on Galnet http://po8.org/seycon-yc120-probe-scanning.html.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:07:00 ] Po Huit > “Let me tell you a little bit about myself.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:07:06 ] Po Huit > “I’ve been a Capsuleer for about 3.5 years.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:07:14 ] Po Huit > “I did my schoolwork at Center for Advanced Studies in Cistuvaert.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:07:35 ] Ayallah > http://po8.org/seycon-yc120-probe-scanning.html <<repaired>>
[ 2018.01.21 19:07:58 ] Po Huit > “Er, thanks for the correction.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:08:14 ] Po Huit > “I’ve flown with a small private corp, with Provibloc, and with Goonswarm as part of Karmafleet and later Amok-dot.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:08:33 ] Po Huit > “From the first time I entered an ancient data site, though, I’ve been in love with exploring.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:08:54 ] Po Huit > “I finally decided to pursue my passion, and was graciously accepted by Signal Cartel at start of YC 119.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:09:15 ] Po Huit > “Soon thereafter, I was invited to be a Director of ‘Splunkworks’, Signal Cartel’s ship-fitting team.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:09:31 ] Po Huit > “In addition to exploring and shipfitting, I try to research and gather knowledge as I can.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:09:39 ] Che Biko > /emote looks at Aria, then gives her an assuring smile, accompanied with a nod before returning his eyes to Po.
[ 2018.01.21 19:09:49 ] Po Huit > “So, on to my topic today.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:10:02 ] Po Huit > “This is very very much a work-in-progress talk.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:10:19 ] Po Huit > “In fact, I’ve barely begun to experiment.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:10:33 ] Po Huit > “If you are wondering why I didn’t perform some experiment or do some piece of research…”
[ 2018.01.21 19:10:51 ] Po Huit > “The answer is that I haven’t thought of it or haven’t had time yet.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:11:09 ] Po Huit > “Questions, suggestions and advice are more than welcome.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:11:32 ] Po Huit > “The research I want to talk about today is looking for perfect probe formations.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:11:46 ] Po Huit > “The Probe Scanner is a key piece of equipment on many ships in New Eden.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:12:01 ] Po Huit > “We use scanners for finding other Capsuleers to fight, for finding other hostiles to fight…”
[ 2018.01.21 19:12:16 ] Po Huit > “and especially for finding ancient sites to explore for valuable relics and data.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:12:31 ] Po Huit > “When I first started exploring, I became interested in the default scanner probe ‘formation’.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:12:31 ] Maira Blackfire > /emote starts following with interest
[ 2018.01.21 19:12:39 ] Ayallah > /emote refocuses on the presentation, looking intently through lowered brows.
[ 2018.01.21 19:12:46 ] Po Huit > “I did not understand why the default formation should not be symmetric in three dimensions.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:13:00 ] Po Huit > “I did not understand why it should work well.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:13:09 ] Po Huit > “I, like many other Capsuleers, discovered formations that worked slightly better in certain situations.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:13:30 ] Po Huit > “This let me resolve some signatures the standard formation could not.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:13:39 ] Hetu Hegirin > /emote slips out her datapad with a slight lip bite, eyes forward
[ 2018.01.21 19:13:43 ] Po Huit > “However, formations like the ‘cube’ or ‘face-centered tetrahedron’ didn’t perform as well as expected.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:14:00 ] Po Huit > “Several years later, after some research, I have learned some of the ‘official’ history of probe scanning.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:14:04 ] Aria Jenneth > … *nods back to Che after hovering for a few more uncertain seconds, and returns to her seat*
[ 2018.01.21 19:14:14 ] Po Huit > “I have also studied the work of other Capsuleers who have posed and answered similar questions on Galnet.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:14:34 ] Po Huit > “I am currently trying to construct new probe formations with better performance.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:14:50 ] Po Huit > “I want to engineer probe scanner formations from first principles.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:15:08 ] Po Huit > “I’m looking for full understanding of the operation of scanner probes.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:15:25 ] Po Huit > “Ultimately, we may be able to engineer optimal formations for various needs.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:15:48 ] Po Huit > “We can use the computing power at our disposal to analyze and optimize formations.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:16:01 ] Po Huit > /emote squints at his datapad
[ 2018.01.21 19:16:18 ] Po Huit > “Let’s talk a bit about the basics of probe scanning.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:16:28 ] Po Huit > “The basic operation of scanners is well-understood by most Capsuleers.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:16:43 ] Po Huit > “I will provide a brief review of relevant points. Please see the full paper for a more detailed description.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:16:56 ] Po Huit > “The probe scanner works by ‘signal-strength quadrilateration.’”
[ 2018.01.21 19:17:14 ] Po Huit > “The simultaneous strength of the signals returned from a target by four or more probes can be compared with their known locations.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:17:31 ] Po Huit > “This gives an estimate of the target position.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:17:51 ] Po Huit > “Targets outside a probe’s radius will never be sensed by that probe. Targets inside always will be.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:18:07 ] Po Huit > “A target’s position estimated quality is reflected by the probe scanner interface as a percentage between 0 and 100%.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:18:20 ] Po Huit > “When the quality is less than 100%, the target’s estimated position contains uncertainty.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:18:37 ] Po Huit > “This uncertainty shows up as deviation of the estimated position from the true position.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:18:49 ] Po Huit > “Estimation quality and deviation is a function of probe radius, probe strength and target return strength.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:19:03 ] Po Huit > “All of the factors are linear, and are easy to understand and account for.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:19:20 ] Po Huit > “They will be largely neglected in what follows.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:19:39 ] Po Huit > “The basic operation of combat scanners and probes looks to be identical to that of core scanners and probes.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:19:53 ] Po Huit > “Combat probing makes it easier to set up experiments when we have full control of the target.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:20:13 ] Po Huit > “So I’m concentrating on that for now.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:20:26 ] Ayallah > /emote continues to listen intently
[ 2018.01.21 19:20:42 ] Po Huit > /emote peers at his datapad
[ 2018.01.21 19:20:53 ] Po Huit > “Lets talk about the basics of Probe Formations.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:21:02 ] Po Huit > “Formations were introduced into probe scanners in a major system upgrade in YC 115.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:21:17 ] Po Huit > “Prior to this, Capsuleers had to set the position and radius of each probe individually for each scan.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:21:30 ] Po Huit > “Manual per-probe position and radius setting is still possible.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:21:41 ] Po Huit > “Default ‘spread’ and ‘pinpoint’ formations are provided by the probe system hardware.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:21:50 ] Po Huit > “The formations are geometrically similar, but not identical.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:22:06 ] Po Huit > “The ‘spread’ formation consists of a spread hexagon of probes in the plane of the solar system.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:22:18 ] Po Huit > “The two remaining probes are placed in the center of the hexagon just above and below plane.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:22:32 ] Po Huit > “This formation is effectively a hexagonal tiling of the plane with extra probe strength in the center.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:22:52 ] Po Huit > /emote displays Figure 1 https://imgur.com/vGTOEuk
[ 2018.01.21 19:23:12 ] Po Huit > “The ‘pinpoint’ formation consists of a dense pentagon of overlapping probes in the plane of the solar system,”
[ 2018.01.21 19:23:31 ] Po Huit > “The three remaining probes are placed in the center of the pentagon above, on, and below the plane.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:23:43 ] Po Huit > “This formation is more space-filling, although it still has high planarity.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:24:09 ] Po Huit > /emote displays Figure 2 https://imgur.com/BKEx5ML
[ 2018.01.21 19:24:39 ] Po Huit > “The planar formation probably makes sense for spread combat probing.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:24:54 ] Po Huit > “It is aligned to the Solar System plane, so can cover much of a system.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:25:11 ] Po Huit > “It seems to make less sense for pinpoint core probing.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:25:26 ] Po Huit > “You’d think it would be better to cover space evenly in all dimensions.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:25:39 ] Po Huit > “Scaling a probe formation scales both the formation itself and the radius of the individual probes.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:25:54 ] Po Huit > “Scaling is a linear expansion/contraction around the centroid of the formation, with all probes given equal weight.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:26:14 ] Po Huit > /emote scribbles c=(∑x[i])/n
[ 2018.01.21 19:26:28 ] Po Huit > “The centroid is just the 3D average. It would be nice to set the center for asymmetric formations. Oh well.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:26:41 ] Po Huit > “Custom formations are achieved by manually manipulating individual probes and saving the result.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:26:54 ] Po Huit > “Custom formations are scaled using the same mechanics as the default formations.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:27:26 ] Po Huit > “An official manufacturer note at the time of the release states that:”
[ 2018.01.21 19:27:43 ] Po Huit > ‘These [default formations] are not intended to be the absolute best possible formations, but rather a solid starting point for budding explorers.’
[ 2018.01.21 19:28:14 ] Po Huit > “I have presented quite a bit of official detail on probe scanning.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:28:37 ] Po Huit > “Now let’s talk about some of the gaps in that knowledge.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:28:57 ] Po Huit > “Key Question: What functions of the probe system state mathematically describe the target estimate quality and deviation?”
[ 2018.01.21 19:29:05 ] Po Huit > “This is an important question, because there is no theoretical way to evaluate the quality of a formation without it.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:29:14 ] Po Huit > “Without a formation quality model, optimization becomes impossible.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:29:34 ] Po Huit > “A number of Capsuleers and Capsuleer corporations have investigated the mathematics of probe scanning.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:29:58 ] Po Huit > “Time does not permit me to summarize everything I’ve found today. Please see the full paper.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:30:30 ] Po Huit > “Here’s a couple of key references.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:30:52 ] Po Huit > “Document: Scanning on the EvEinfo wiki, date unknown”
[ 2018.01.21 19:31:01 ] Po Huit > http://www.eveinfo.net/complexes/ind~1304.htm
[ 2018.01.21 19:31:14 ] Po Huit > “This is a superficially quite credible account of the single-probe strength calculation”
[ 2018.01.21 19:31:21 ] Ayallah > /emote mirrors the link to her datapad
[ 2018.01.21 19:31:28 ] Po Huit > “This appears to be a copy of an old Goonwiki document.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:31:38 ] Po Huit > “As I am no longer in Goons, I cannot verify whether it has ever been edited there.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:31:53 ] Po Huit > “Document: Apocrypha Probe Scanning by Space Wanderer YC 111”
[ 2018.01.21 19:32:02 ] Po Huit > http://oldforums.eveonline.com/?a=topic&threadID=1019121
[ 2018.01.21 19:32:14 ] Po Huit > “This is a superficially quite credible account of how multiple probes are combined.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:32:30 ] Po Huit > “Document: Manufacturer Notes YC 115”
[ 2018.01.21 19:32:41 ] Ayallah > /emote frowns, she looks up to mirror the second link.
[ 2018.01.21 19:32:42 ] Po Huit > https://community.eveonline.com/news/dev-blogs/team-super-friends-do-odyssey/
[ 2018.01.21 19:32:54 ] Po Huit > “This is when probe formations are introduced by manufacturers.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:33:09 ] Po Huit > “There do not seem to be any manufacturer-reported changes to the actual probe scan mechanics.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:33:42 ] Po Huit > “I have archived copies of these links if they fail to work.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:33:49 ] Po Huit > “This material is quite old.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:34:03 ] Po Huit > “Please contact me for information as you need it.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:34:18 ] Po Huit > “Now I’d like to report on some experiments I’ve done.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:34:32 ] Po Huit > “I started with single-probe scanning, because that made things a lot easier.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:34:39 ] Po Huit > “The Goonwiki Formula is a good candidate for single-probe scan strength.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:34:51 ] Po Huit > “The Goonwiki Formula says that quality will vary as the 3/2 power of probe-target distance.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:35:09 ] Po Huit > /emote scribbles Q=Sp⋅Ss⋅(1−0.65(D/R)^(3/2))
[ 2018.01.21 19:35:22 ] Po Huit > “Here Q is the scan quality and Sp and Ss are the probe and target strengths.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:35:40 ] Po Huit > “D/R is the fractional distance from the target to the probe.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:35:53 ] Po Huit > “I have performed simulator experiments to check this result.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:36:09 ] Po Huit > “The details of the experimental setup and results are in the paper.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:36:21 ] Po Huit > “In the interests of time, I’ll jump to the punchline.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:36:41 ] Po Huit > “Let’s look at a graph comparing the formula with experiment.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:37:01 ] Po Huit > “This graph will show the actual signal quality and the theoretical prediction.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:37:16 ] Po Huit > /emote displays Figure 3. https://imgur.com/sHUZE0T
[ 2018.01.21 19:37:34 ] Po Huit > “I hope we can agree that this graph validates the formula.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:37:39 ] Po Huit > /emote smiles
[ 2018.01.21 19:38:02 ] Che Biko > /emote nods slightly.
[ 2018.01.21 19:38:02 ] Po Huit > “The constant 85.3 used in the formula is derived from first principles, with no fudge factor.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:38:07 ] Hetu Hegirin > /emote nods along, swiping notes
[ 2018.01.21 19:38:22 ] Po Huit > “OK, we’ve got some understanding single-probe returns. Now let’s add a second probe.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:38:31 ] Maira Blackfire > /emote nods aprovingly
[ 2018.01.21 19:38:32 ] Po Huit > “A usable model should account for 1–8 probes. Two is a good starting place.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:38:48 ] Po Huit > “Because the scanner quadrilaterates, placing multiple probes on top of the target is not helpful: geometry matters.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:39:04 ] Po Huit > “Placing a second probe directly on top of the first makes almost no difference in scan quality.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:39:22 ] Po Huit > “I recently performed an experiment to evaluate the effect of probe angle in a two-probe setup.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:39:33 ] Po Huit > “The first probe was placed at a fixed distance from the target.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:39:54 ] Po Huit > “The second probe was rotated ‘around the circle’ at this same distance to various angles.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:40:06 ] Po Huit > “Here’s a graph of the results.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:40:18 ] Po Huit > /emote displays Figure 4 https://imgur.com/I05Kn7X
[ 2018.01.21 19:40:35 ] Po Huit > “Except the one outlier (further testing is needed), quality appears to vary linearly between 1x and 2x as a function of angle.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:40:51 ] Po Huit > “I have done no solid experiments with more than two probes yet.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:41:01 ] Po Huit > “I have a hypothesis for the eight-probe model based on Space Wanderer’s model.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:41:08 ] Po Huit > “But it’s early days.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:41:29 ] Po Huit > “Finally, let’s talk about the future. I’d like to tell you a little bit about my plans for optimizing probe formations.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:41:30 ] Che Biko > /emote frowns a little.
[ 2018.01.21 19:41:33 ] Ayallah > /emote purses her lips, looking a little put out.
[ 2018.01.21 19:41:48 ] Po Huit > “I have a background in computer-aided optimization from my CAS days.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:42:09 ] Po Huit > “My original research actually involved building a software optimizer for probe formations. This research did not go well.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:42:17 ] Po Huit > “I quickly found that an optimizer was not going to make progress without an accurate model.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:42:32 ] Po Huit > “Once I have completed my current work, I will return to my optimizer and see what it tells me.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:42:41 ] Po Huit > “One might ask how much better we can expect to do with optimal formations.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:42:57 ] Po Huit > “My current guess is that the difference will be small: probably in the 2–5% range.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:43:09 ] Po Huit > “Anyway, the knowledge will be valuable in its own right.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:43:21 ] Po Huit > “Also, even a small percentage increase can pick up some marginal signatures: it’s worth building a custom formation for.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:43:27 ] Ayallah > /emote perks her eyebrows, a bit surprised.
[ 2018.01.21 19:43:42 ] Po Huit > “Thanks much for your time and attention, and for the honor of letting me present my work.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:43:54 ] Po Huit > “Thanks especially to the conference leadership.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:44:08 ] Po Huit > “In particular, Makoto Priano has given a lot of valuable time working with me .”
[ 2018.01.21 19:44:21 ] Po Huit > “That’s all I’ve got right now. Again, thanks!”
[ 2018.01.21 19:44:40 ] Po Huit > /emote steps away from the podium a bit, relieved to be finished.
[ 2018.01.21 19:45:39 ] Jaret Victorian > /emote steps on stage “Thank you, Po Huit for a very informative presentation. We still have some time before the panel for Questions, so if anyone got any right now, we’d like to hear them”
[ 2018.01.21 19:45:42 ] Hetu Hegirin > /emote applauds, perchance distracted
[ 2018.01.21 19:45:43 ] Makoto Priano > /emote raises her hand.
[ 2018.01.21 19:45:50 ] Po Huit > /emote points at Makoto
[ 2018.01.21 19:45:57 ] Jaret Victorian > /emote points to Makoto Priano “Yes, please?”
[ 2018.01.21 19:46:08 ] Aria Jenneth > /emote applauds
[ 2018.01.21 19:46:26 ] Makoto Priano > “So, I have a few, but let’s start at the more theoretical end of the spectrum. Have you derived effective signal strengths for each tier of signature? Effectively, what’s the signature radius of a given signature, like a K162?”
[ 2018.01.21 19:46:47 ] Po Huit > “That research is out there, but it hasn’t been my focus.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:46:55 ] Po Huit > …
[ 2018.01.21 19:47:18 ] Ayallah > /emote smooths her dress
[ 2018.01.21 19:47:20 ] Po Huit > “I’m working with known targets until I understand how the scanner works.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:47:52 ] Po Huit > “There are some good Galnet links out there for targets, though.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:48:07 ] Po Huit > “Let me know offline if you want some help finding them.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:48:16 ] Makoto Priano > “Understood. Mostly, I wonder because it would help establish what falls into the band made accessible at a given range by a 2% to 5% increase. I’ll do some hunting.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:48:39 ] Po Huit > “There’s no sig out there that can’t be scanned with the standard formation as far as I know.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:48:50 ] Po Huit > “Given an ideal ship, fitting and crazy implants.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:49:08 ] Po Huit > “The idea is really to be able to get that hard sig with whatever ship you’re sitting in right now.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:49:28 ] Po Huit > “There’s nothing worse than staring at 98% and having no way to finish.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:49:30 ] Po Huit > /emote smiles
[ 2018.01.21 19:49:58 ] A Dead Parrot > /emote raises his hand
[ 2018.01.21 19:50:16 ] Francophobia > /emote flicks through some of the notes he has taken for later review, nods, and turns his attention back to the stage.
[ 2018.01.21 19:50:17 ] Po Huit > /emote nods at Parrot. “Parrot!”
[ 2018.01.21 19:50:33 ] A Dead Parrot > Thank you Po. Do you have a theory on why the angle of the second probe should have such a strong effect in your two probe set-up? Or did I miss something?
[ 2018.01.21 19:51:15 ] Po Huit > “Great question. It’s the quadrilateration. If the probes are at the same place and see the same strength, it just doesn’t tell you anything about the position.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:51:36 ] Po Huit > “If they are on opposite sides of the target, that tells you a ring of possible locations.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:52:56 ] Po Huit > “Anyone else?”
[ 2018.01.21 19:53:03 ] Maira Blackfire > /emote after making a few notes on her datapad she raises a hand.
[ 2018.01.21 19:53:23 ] Che Biko > /emote raises his hand.
[ 2018.01.21 19:53:24 ] Po Huit > /emote smiles at Maira, inviting a question.
[ 2018.01.21 19:53:31 ] Maira Blackfire > “This cube formation you talked about can you describe it? I myself had had some success with a modified cube formation, where I flatten one of the sides of the cube”
[ 2018.01.21 19:54:16 ] Po Huit > “Yeah, the cube is just what it sounds like. In our informal experiments it has seemed to *maybe* give better sig quality than the standard…”
[ 2018.01.21 19:54:34 ] Po Huit > “but it also seems to have more deviation, so you miss sigs.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:54:47 ] Po Huit > “It was really a motivation for this work, since it looks so much better on paper.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:55:26 ] Po Huit > “I want to understand why it doesn’t beat the standard formation soiundly.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:55:43 ] Po Huit > /emote points to Che. “You had a question?”
[ 2018.01.21 19:56:14 ] Maira Blackfire > /emote blush a little. then gives a big hud “thank you for the answer, i’ll be looking award to see you resolve”
[ 2018.01.21 19:57:01 ] Maira Blackfire > /emote gasp a hand to her mouth “forward”
[ 2018.01.21 19:57:25 ] Che Biko > /emote nods. “Yes. Concerning the graph on quality as a function of probe angle… you said it was linear, but it seems likely to me that it could be parabolic, with the peak at the 180 degrees point?
[ 2018.01.21 19:58:09 ] Po Huit > “Excellent point. I felt bad about putting that graph up, actually, because in another day or two I’ll have so much better data…”
[ 2018.01.21 19:58:41 ] Po Huit > “I generally assume that manufacturers do the simplest possible thing, and this sure looks linear through most of its range.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:59:05 ] Po Huit > “But I need to develop a bit better instrumentation and get a higher-resolution dataset before I can be sure.”
[ 2018.01.21 19:59:16 ] Che Biko > /emote nods a bit.
[ 2018.01.21 20:00:05 ] Jaret Victorian > Thank you for your questions! We will take a short break before we start our next panel in about 5 minutes.
*INTERMISSION FOLLOWED BY Q&A – UNEDITED FOR CLARITY*
[ 2018.01.21 20:09:57 ] Jaret Victorian > /emote steps on stage “Our guests from Signal Cartel specialise in space exploration and signature scanning. Next and the last panel of Seycon YC120 will focus on exactly that – exploration!”
[ 2018.01.21 20:10:12 ] Lasairiona Raske > /emote quietly waves to Mizhir, heading backstage again.
[ 2018.01.21 20:10:20 ] Andrew Chikatilo > /emote looks interested
[ 2018.01.21 20:10:26 ] Jaret Victorian > Please welcome on stage Thrice Hapus, Po Huit, Katia Sae for the Explorer’s panel.
[ 2018.01.21 20:10:41 ] Mizhir > /emote quietly makes her way back to her seat
[ 2018.01.21 20:10:55 ] Po Huit > /emote seats himself in a comfy chair at the front and leans back.
[ 2018.01.21 20:11:00 ] Katia Sae > /emote appears via holoviewer, starts to wave, stops herself, then smiles nervously
[ 2018.01.21 20:11:09 ] Thrice Hapus > /emote mounts the platform and looks out at the crowd, smiling.
[ 2018.01.21 20:11:19 ] Che Biko > /emote claps politely.
[ 2018.01.21 20:12:22 ] Thrice Hapus > Hello, everyone. Sorry I was a touch late coming in just now.
[ 2018.01.21 20:12:47 ] Thrice Hapus > I am Thrice Hapus, and it is my pleasure to serve as the coordinator for EvE-Scout Rescue.
[ 2018.01.21 20:13:24 ] Thrice Hapus > We exist to assist capsuleers stranded in wormholes find exits back to known space.
[ 2018.01.21 20:14:00 ] Thrice Hapus > We do this primarily through two programs, our Rescue Cache program and our Saecg & Rescue operation.
[ 2018.01.21 20:14:26 ] Thrice Hapus > /emote clears throat. “Search, excuse me.”
[ 2018.01.21 20:14:56 ] Thrice Hapus > Our Rescue Caches currently exist in over 50% of all wormhole systems.
[ 2018.01.21 20:15:15 ] Thrice Hapus > Let’s see…
[ 2018.01.21 20:15:42 ] Thrice Hapus > /emote consults datapad. “1438 systems as of just a few minutes ago.”
[ 2018.01.21 20:16:18 ] Thrice Hapus > We have aided 127 capsuleers out of Anoikis via our rescue caches over the past ten months.
[ 2018.01.21 20:17:07 ] Thrice Hapus > In that same timeframe, our Search and Rescue pilots have been able to locate and scout exits for 67 stranded pilots.
[ 2018.01.21 20:18:22 ] Thrice Hapus > On avergae, we have 45 or 50 Signal Cartel pilots each week who work placing and tending rescue caches in Anoikis. These selfless Signaleers reach about 600 or so J-space systems each week.
[ 2018.01.21 20:18:23 ] Maira Blackfire > /emote raises an eyebrow at the number
[ 2018.01.21 20:19:48 ] Thrice Hapus > I hope we’ll have time later for any questions. For now, I’d like to turn things over to Katia Sae.
[ 2018.01.21 20:19:54 ] Thrice Hapus > Thank you.
[ 2018.01.21 20:20:14 ] Katia Sae > Hello and thanks for having me. Wish I could be there in person, but I’m deep in wormhole space
[ 2018.01.21 20:20:26 ] Katia Sae > and connections don’t always… well… connect.
[ 2018.01.21 20:20:36 ] Katia Sae > /emote quiet, nervous laugh escapes her
[ 2018.01.21 20:20:50 ] Katia Sae > Yes, well… ahhhhIII’m sure there are those who wonder what my exploration qualifications are.
[ 2018.01.21 20:20:57 ] Che Biko > /emote smiles slightly.
[ 2018.01.21 20:21:09 ] Katia Sae > I often tell those who ask what I do, that I do the sights, not the sites. I’m not an archeologist or a data analyst.
[ 2018.01.21 20:21:13 ] Aria Jenneth > /emote cocks her head, listening*
[ 2018.01.21 20:21:38 ] Katia Sae > After graduating and completing my tour of duty with the Caldari State,
[ 2018.01.21 20:21:45 ] Nevyn Kumamato > /emote slips quietly in
[ 2018.01.21 20:21:56 ] Katia Sae > I began a personal voyage of discovery to visit every known system in New Eden.
[ 2018.01.21 20:22:08 ] Katia Sae > /emote pauses and visibly takes a deep breath
[ 2018.01.21 20:22:26 ] Katia Sae > I started with Empire Space eight, nine years ago in yc111 which I completed in yc116.
[ 2018.01.21 20:22:48 ] Katia Sae > Then I started and completed all of Null Sec space in yc116 and 117.
[ 2018.01.21 20:23:07 ] Katia Sae > You can see those flight logs here http://blog.saganexplorations.net/?page_id=14
[ 2018.01.21 20:23:26 ] Katia Sae > In yc118, I began my toughest challenge to date and that is to visit all of wormhole space,
[ 2018.01.21 20:23:40 ] Katia Sae > which is where I am now. For those flight logs, see http://blog.saganexplorations.net/?page_id=2288292
[ 2018.01.21 20:23:57 ] Katia Sae > /emote smiles warmly and seems to be more relaxed
[ 2018.01.21 20:24:10 ] Katia Sae > At the moment, I’ve visited 79% of all of New Eden, 100% of reachable K-space and 43% of W-space. 6,330 systems out of 8,035.
[ 2018.01.21 20:24:24 ] Katia Sae > And I’ve not lost a ship as of yet.
[ 2018.01.21 20:24:43 ] Katia Sae > Also, I have the distinct honor and privilege to be the oldest Signal Cartel non-leadership member
[ 2018.01.21 20:24:44 ] Thrice Hapus > /emote emits a low whistle in admiration
[ 2018.01.21 20:24:55 ] Hetu Hegirin > /emote nods with widened eyes, checking the logs on her datapad.
[ 2018.01.21 20:25:11 ] Katia Sae > with my 3 year anniversary coming up next week. Where I do a lot of behind the scenes work
[ 2018.01.21 20:25:29 ] Katia Sae > providing our explorers free fitted out T1 frigates
[ 2018.01.21 20:25:47 ] Katia Sae > As well as being the Curator for our Eve-Scout Observatory which you can see here
[ 2018.01.21 20:26:01 ] Katia Sae > https://www.flickr.com/photos/eve-scout/
[ 2018.01.21 20:26:15 ] Katia Sae > /emote eyes go wide and she begins to speak quickly
[ 2018.01.21 20:26:23 ] Katia Sae > And lastly, I was Project Coordinator for Signal Cartel Project “W”
[ 2018.01.21 20:26:31 ] Katia Sae > where we tried to make sense out of the non-randomness of wormhole space connections.
[ 2018.01.21 20:26:38 ] Katia Sae > Unfortunately, the results of that project proved that wormhole space connections of a given type were indeed random.
[ 2018.01.21 20:26:46 ] Katia Sae > But you can learn more about that here if you’re interested http://blog.saganexplorations.net/?cat=20
[ 2018.01.21 20:26:58 ] Che Biko > /emote looks for Ninavask with a slight frown.
[ 2018.01.21 20:27:02 ] Katia Sae > /emote cheeks turn red “Did I speak too long? I spoke too long, didn’t I?”
[ 2018.01.21 20:27:11 ] Katia Sae > /emote quickly says, “I’m so sorry who’s next?”
[ 2018.01.21 20:27:20 ] Po Huit > “I’ll take it.”
[ 2018.01.21 20:27:39 ] Po Huit > “I’ve already introduced myself, so I’ll spare the details.”
[ 2018.01.21 20:28:13 ] Po Huit > “I’m Po Huit, Signal Cartel’s ‘Splunkworks’ Fitting Director and an indifferent-quality but enthusiastic explorer.”
[ 2018.01.21 20:28:23 ] Ayallah > /emote stands and steps out of the lecture for a moment.
[ 2018.01.21 20:28:37 ] Po Huit > “I’ve been asked to talk to some research we did recently that was pretty interesting.”
[ 2018.01.21 20:29:03 ] Po Huit > “A Dead Parrot led the work, but for some reason I get to report it a bit.”
[ 2018.01.21 20:29:19 ] Po Huit > /emote peers at the audience. >”Is Parrot out there?”
[ 2018.01.21 20:29:25 ] Katia Sae > /emote smiles
[ 2018.01.21 20:29:37 ] Thrice Hapus > /emote glances at A Dead Parrot inquisitively.
[ 2018.01.21 20:29:58 ] Po Huit > “Parrot got real curious about the Drifter Wormhole systems.”
[ 2018.01.21 20:30:17 ] Po Huit > “So he started a nice project to have us scan all of them down.”
[ 2018.01.21 20:30:46 ] Po Huit > “For a couple of days, we put pilots in each of the five systems.”
[ 2018.01.21 20:30:56 ] Po Huit > “And continuously scanned down all the signatures there.”
[ 2018.01.21 20:31:19 ] Po Huit > “Questions were: can the Drifters control the wormholes? Can we use them as a transportation mechanism like Thera?”
[ 2018.01.21 20:31:34 ] Po Huit > “It was an epic effort by a huge number of Signal Cartel pilots.”
[ 2018.01.21 20:32:01 ] Po Huit > “The hypothesis was that if the Drifters controlled the wormholes they’d keep all five systems connected through K-space.”
[ 2018.01.21 20:32:23 ] Po Huit > “I built a simulator and validated some probability calculations based on our measurements.”
[ 2018.01.21 20:32:39 ] Po Huit > “With an average of 27 holes per system, all leading to K-space…”
[ 2018.01.21 20:33:04 ] Po Huit > “Even random connections would result in all 5 systems being connected around 70% of the time.”
[ 2018.01.21 20:33:14 ] Po Huit > “So our results were inconclusive on that front.”
[ 2018.01.21 20:33:44 ] Po Huit > “There are some obvious issues with using the Drifter Wormholes as a connection network. Notably Drifters.”
[ 2018.01.21 20:33:45 ] Maira Blackfire > /emote sips her wine. with renewed interest
[ 2018.01.21 20:33:47 ] Po Huit > /emote chuckles
[ 2018.01.21 20:34:05 ] Makoto Priano > Sotto voce: “You’re all mad, and I like it.”
[ 2018.01.21 20:34:18 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote rolls her eyes.
[ 2018.01.21 20:34:39 ] Po Huit > “But aside from that and other logistical concerns, it looks like we’d have to have about 50 pilots to scan the systems regularly and adequately. The holes only last about 5 hours, so it’s frequent scanning.”
[ 2018.01.21 20:35:11 ] Po Huit > “We concluded we couldn’t take it on at this time. But if it were done, a covops frigate could go pretty much anywhere in New Eden in about a dozen jumps.”
[ 2018.01.21 20:35:16 ] Po Huit > “So that would be cool.”
[ 2018.01.21 20:36:23 ] Che Biko > /emote nods a bit.
[ 2018.01.21 20:36:25 ] Po Huit > “With that, let’s take questions for a while and see how that goes.”
[ 2018.01.21 20:36:38 ] Katia Sae > /emote nods in agreement
[ 2018.01.21 20:37:04 ] Mizhir > /emote raises a hand
[ 2018.01.21 20:37:34 ] Po Huit > /emote nods to Mizhir
[ 2018.01.21 20:37:57 ] Po Huit > “One thing before we get going. Thrice has another engagement, so if you have questions for him specifically please ask soon.”
[ 2018.01.21 20:38:18 ] Mizhir > I have two questions. One for Mr. Hapus and one for Ms. Sae
[ 2018.01.21 20:38:20 ] Po Huit > “I honestly don’t know how he does all the things he does in a 24-hour day.”
[ 2018.01.21 20:38:32 ] Po Huit > “Go for it!”
[ 2018.01.21 20:39:26 ] Po Huit > /emote looks at Mizhir
[ 2018.01.21 20:39:48 ] Mizhir > Ok, Mr. Hapus first: Capsuleers who inhabit J-space tend to not like visitors and I have heard cases of them destroying rescue caches that your program seeds in their systems. How do you react to that? Do you keep seeding them?
[ 2018.01.21 20:40:02 ] Thrice Hapus > Excellent question.
[ 2018.01.21 20:40:22 ] Thrice Hapus > We do find our caches destroyed on a quite regular basis.
[ 2018.01.21 20:40:29 ] Che Biko > /emote looks at Miz for a moment, then looks to Hapus.
[ 2018.01.21 20:40:53 ] Thrice Hapus > However, unless asked specifically by residents of the wormhole to stop placing them, we persist in doing so.
[ 2018.01.21 20:41:17 ] Thrice Hapus > We figure it is better to have a chance to offer hope to stranded pilot whenever we can.
[ 2018.01.21 20:41:23 ] Miyoshi Akachi > /emote couldn’t but let a smile appear on her lips about that words.
[ 2018.01.21 20:41:40 ] Ayallah > /emote slips back into the lecture hall, quietly finding her seat next to Mizhir again. She smooths her dress as she sits.
[ 2018.01.21 20:41:44 ] Thrice Hapus > If residents of a given system would like us to cease placing rescue caches in their system, they can contact me directly to discuss details.
[ 2018.01.21 20:41:57 ] Lasairiona Raske > /emote comes out of the employee area, moving quietly out of the lecture hall.
[ 2018.01.21 20:42:24 ] Mizhir > Thank you. And for Ms. Sae: How does it feel to be the person who has traveled most places in New Eden and Anoikis?
[ 2018.01.21 20:42:40 ] Katia Sae > /emote laughs and nods
[ 2018.01.21 20:42:50 ] Katia Sae > Ahhh… the same as before I started?
[ 2018.01.21 20:43:14 ] Katia Sae > I supposed it is true, at least documented, that I have visited more than any other, but I do some times wonder if that is true.
[ 2018.01.21 20:43:37 ] Mizhir > /emote laughs “thank you”
[ 2018.01.21 20:43:39 ] Katia Sae > So many of us come and go, explore, venture out, that who knows if I truly have
[ 2018.01.21 20:43:58 ] Katia Sae > Thank you for the question
[ 2018.01.21 20:44:09 ] Thrice Hapus > /emote attempts to exit unobtrusively.
[ 2018.01.21 20:44:42 ] Po Huit > /emote smiles at Thrice. He looks glad that he could make it.
[ 2018.01.21 20:45:35 ] Thrice Hapus > /emote throws a small wave at Po Huit and Katia Sae as he leaves the hall.
[ 2018.01.21 20:46:13 ] Katia Sae > Any other questions for us, comments, suggestions, what’s on your mind?
[ 2018.01.21 20:46:40 ] Che Biko > /emote raises his hand
[ 2018.01.21 20:47:10 ] Katia Sae > Yes, looks like there’s a hand up, best I can tell
[ 2018.01.21 20:47:11 ] Po Huit > /emote points to Che
[ 2018.01.21 20:48:10 ] Che Biko > /emote smiles slightly. “Have you visited J120442, or Origin as we’d like to call it, and if so, did you enjoy yuor visit?
[ 2018.01.21 20:48:29 ] Katia Sae > Well now… let me check…
[ 2018.01.21 20:49:15 ] Katia Sae > /emotes looks out towards the ceiling, eyes darting back and forth
[ 2018.01.21 20:49:39 ] Katia Sae > As a mater of fact, I have
[ 2018.01.21 20:49:52 ] Katia Sae > Just recently too
[ 2018.01.21 20:50:02 ] Katia Sae > Looks like on 10.12.yc119
[ 2018.01.21 20:50:10 ] Katia Sae > It was lovely this time of year
[ 2018.01.21 20:50:18 ] Katia Sae > /emote smiles
[ 2018.01.21 20:50:22 ] Che Biko > /emote chuckles softly.
[ 2018.01.21 20:50:26 ] Miyoshi Akachi > /emote looks at Che and at the podium, smile growing wider as she hides it behind a hand.
[ 2018.01.21 20:50:28 ] Katia Sae > Thank you for your question
[ 2018.01.21 20:50:32 ] Po Huit > “Before you all go, I want to be sure that you know that EVE Scout Rescue is made available to stranded pilots free of charge.”
[ 2018.01.21 20:50:49 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods slightly, she flashes Aria a glance.
[ 2018.01.21 20:51:10 ] Po Huit > “Thrice didn’t get a chance to mention, but there’s an ISKStarter https://isk-starter.com/campaigns/5a5e40828d2a060018029354/ currently running to make this operation possible.”
[ 2018.01.21 20:51:39 ] Po Huit > “If you felt like contributing to this service, it would be greatly appreciated by our pilots and by the pilots we serve.”
[ 2018.01.21 20:52:28 ] Hetu Hegirin > /emote swipes a last note into the datapad and tucks it away
[ 2018.01.21 20:53:12 ] Maira Blackfire > /emote add the donation link on her datapad
[ 2018.01.21 20:53:24 ] Po Huit > “Any last questions?”
[ 2018.01.21 20:54:23 ] Jaret Victorian > Thanks to our guests from Signal Cartel! The Donor ball will begin in around 10 minutes in Eram Ballroom! We hope to see you all there
