Good thing I started mining ice. My research alt's tower started screaming for fuel. So I went and ran some fuel out to it (nice I can fit a full 4 weeks of fuel in the tower now). But this got me looking at the fuel reserves I have on hand. Not actually bad for a gal tower but a bit low for a matari tower.
Which got me looking at my Robotics and other fuel component reserves...
Yikes PI going to be necessary. So I spent the rest of the evening doing some more ice mining. Then I refined the ice and it's only after I did so that I realized I was using the wrong station to do it (Doh!)... Stupid 32% stations in high sec. The devil is in the details.
Plan for tomorrow (today): get my alts cranking the PI goo with an eye to making some fuel. Man I wish that PI was not so carpal tunnel inducing. We need to pick up the goods on a very regular basis in space, there's no need to make the configuration/extraction side of the mini game so click intensive. Still one of the worst designed sub-systems of eve online. I suspect most producers would use bots just because of the shier useless drudgery of it all.
