First ded space complex

Tonight I had a go at many first ded complex,  I have  done many mag and radar sites but have always avoided the combat sites thinking them not worth the risk, however I have been reading tales of making billions from a single site, so I decided to give it a go.
While out scanning near home I found a unrated serpintis outpost, I grabed a spare harby I had for pvp and sort of fitted it for fighting serps and gave it a whirl.
Wasnt to bad..lost two drones as I was watching d-scan instead of the aggro but the harby muddled through.  Saddly the shadow serp didnt spawn and the site didnt escalate, but with some tweaks to my method I can see me running these more regularly...hopefully in aT3.

please help my sanity..

Ok so exploration suffers with a small problem, a lot of the time you log on to go find some nice radar or mag sites only to find some inconsiderate git has already done them! They will re-spawn, but that takes time, so what to do? trading only takes me so long, and mining is like watching paint dry. So in a effort to "be productive" I bought a nice new mission apoc to go do some level 4's when I need some down time, also kinda easy to do when you don't know how long you have to play. I did a couple solo the other day...I forgot how dull they are by yourself. This is where you guys may be able to help... I am NOT looking to join any corps but if there are any players flying around Fricoure (or near by) that are interested on fleeting on a casual basis please mail me :) I am happy to continue running level 4s solo but would enjoy some company, I am on mainly in the evenings UK time, I may or may not be doing other stuff in low sec (super secret take over eve plans, but when I do venture back to high sec a couple of times a week, PLEASE SAVE MY SANITY!

I have been playing a lot of games recently, mainly on the xbox, the upcoming launch of the 720 or what ever it will be called has got me going through all the games I bought and left laying around never played or completed as I don't want to buy anything else really until the new console is out. 9 oddly the game that has my interest the most on the upcoming xbox atm is destiny by bungie, looks like a cross between halo and eve..if it is it will be amazing. as for my MMO gaming I have been sadly lacking, in part due to building a impressive catalog of films and tv series which needed downloading, hence restricting bandwidth. When I have had the laptop available I have been playing a mix of Eve and STO, while eve will always have my heart and mind I am enjoying STO, the pve is simple it's easy to just pick up and go and can be played at a very relaxed pace, if you step away from the keyboard for 2 mins it doesn't really matter, do it in eve and you and most of your assets are toast. In eve my trade idea is still going, im not making billions from it but I cut a decent profit, plus its not to time intensive, I may start doing some missions again soon, the exploration I do is fun but the sites have often been stripped clean before I get on. Who knows may even open my corp to a few mission runners..could always use the chat to liven the game up again. /Astral
