the evil of wireless...

I havent been online to much this week, a combination of RL stuff to do and frustration waiting for skills to finish, i did log on for a few hours on sunday and had a headache due to my wirless router playing up, on logging on i wanted to do 2 things , grind some standings for fed navy and build myself a shiny T2 punisher to use for ratting/tackling when we move to null sec...

the first hour or so flying about picking up bits for the punisher went quite well, at the end i had a reasonably good fit (IMO) T2 punisher that could swap between tackling for a fleet or ratting small plex's, thats when the fun started i went over to lirsutton where i normaly grab some lvl 2 missions for fed and took of on the mordus head hunters mission, not a big deal really but it had sodding ship restrictions so instead of taking the harby or prophecy i decided to dust off my omen and take it for a spin...
i got in to the ded space without any trouble and started to take a lot of fire form a few BC  6 cruisers  and a handful of frigates, i poped the frigs and all but one cruiser and a BC by the time i was at 50% armor and  was just aligning to jump out at 25%  thinking " i'll just warp back and mop up"..wrong  as im aligning  i see i have been logged out of voice..as normal this is followed by the screen freezing...no big deal i think i'll just go into emergency warp and be fine...wrong.... after 10 mis of logging out and rebooting the router  i log back in to a 5 mill payout and a pod :( . all i have to say is POXY INTERNET!! i dont mind losing ships because i suck, i dont mind losing them because im drunk or because others were better..but losing them because of a shite connection one night at the exchange is just damn annoying!! good thing it was only a cheap cruiser..
