Carrier Runs 1-22

Overview

The fruits of our trading operation have seen the growth of a Heavy Industry branch of our operation. The initial ISK outlay to start the operation was high, but our market research proved the venture to be viable.

The Numbers

We have been running for around 25 days and we have sold 22 hulls. So far we have been very pleased with the results and velocity of sales. As expected the Nidhoggur has a smaller margin and velocity when compared to the other racial types.

Heavy Industry

We have reached a point where we can keep all 7 Carrier BPOs in production. Our mineral sourcing, compression, and transport operation has been moving materials along with ease.

An industry goal for 2013 is to expand into Dreadnought production.  We have purchased the Capital Component and Weapon Blueprints. Once they reach acceptable ME/PE  levels, we’ll start to produce Dreadnoughts.

Desktop Video Card Upgrade

I upgraded the video card on my main desktop from an aging GeForce GTX 260 to a GeForce GTX 670 that can support for up to four monitors. Additionally I added a 24″ ASUS monitor to serve as the new center monitor.

What I thought would be a renewed time of actually playing Eve devolved into a MySQL query session to work on trading and profitability projections. I guess we all play the game differently.

I am really impressed with the card’s ability to run three clients at full screen (1 @ 1920×1080, 2 @ 1680×1050) with full effects and HDR enabled.
