And that says nothing about finding the wormholes themselves -- those precious lifelines that connect your system to other systems and (eventually) to Empire space (also known as "that place where we go to get supplies").
CB has likened the first couple days of wormhole living to a weekend of camping -- you're out in the wilderness, except that every day someone runs back to town to buy whatever it is that we've realized we've forgot. That will eventually get better (I hope), but in the meantime it requires a lot of scanning, which is something CB still isn't entirely comfortable with. Gor is even less comfortable -- it's fair to say that he begins every scanning session with the heavy sigh of a doomed gladiator entering the Ring of Death.
At their request, I agree to download a copy of Fraps and put together a couple videos showing exactly how I'm able to scan down cosmic signatures in the system.
Part 1 and Part 2 are amusing, in that I'm using suboptimal equipment and decide to scan down a particularly difficult signature... which mean I ultimately fail to successfully scan down the site. Part 3 and part 4 are more successful, though the audio quality isn't as good.
(Note: if you don't play EVE, you probably won't enjoy watching all of this stuff, unless it's to hear me babble, which is sometimes amusing.)
There are lots of scanning training videos out there, and almost all of them are better than these, I suppose, but I like them because they're mine.
What else happened the day I made the videos? I don't know -- I was teaching myself Fraps.
