And, just a week later, looks like the market volume has rebounded a bit! Offers to buy Dilithium have gone up. Its interesting in that in the past month and a half offers to buy Dilithium and Zen have been a bit apart. Usually they tend to be a bit closer in volume! Interesting.

Is it? Could it be? Movement! After being so flat and dull for the past few weeks, the Z:D rate has jumped up a bit to 1:115. What could have caused it? Good question. One could hazard a guess, but I suppose I could probably listen to this week's podcast to get a better idea ;)
I'm currently quite interested in the Elachi Lockboxes coming up. The new ships are visually interesting, and the crescent weapons looks very nice. Between them and the Tal Shiar lockbox ships, I'll be busy for a while. Thankfully for me, Master Keys are on sale. If you're looking to buy them, now is a good time to do so provided you're doing so with Zen. Oddly enough, a quick check on the Exchange shows them being 1.49 million EC at a minimum. I suppose the combination of the sale and the Lockbox Special are keeping prices up. Normally, a sale on Keys means the EC price goes down as well.
Of course, that's still price competitive with selling Fleet Ship Modules, which are starting at 5.82 million EC at the moment. Anyhow, onto the data!

Its a nice, quiet week once more. The Z:D rate has been pretty darn steady, trading volume seems good, and a good number of people are making offers for Zen if you're in need for Dilithium right now. Certainly more offers than there's been for a while! There's a new cosmetic project going up for the Fleet Dilithium Mine called "the Motherlode," which might be fun as well.
But for now... onto the data!

Another quiet week of numbers, it seems. Massively has been doing a nice bit of interviews with Dan Stahl (part one and two), which has some nice food for thought about the future. I've been working a little on my Romulan character, getting Lockboxes opened up for Lobi, and all has been pretty nice, really.
Now, that said, the number seem pretty good to me.

Ah, the joys of starting back at square one…
I’m going to have to thank my friend John for introducing me to Maui Paintball back in March. I hadn’t played paintball in nearly two decades, and its so much different now than it was back then! Which is fair! I’m certainly a lot different than back then too.
So, I’ve been going at least once a month since then, participated in two tournaments with Team Scrat (a more wonderful bunch of lunatics I do not know), and even got my mom to play. But, I really have to thank paintball for one thing more than anything else – its getting me to exercise.

Three statisticians went out hunting, and came across a large deer. The first statistician fired, but missed, by a meter to the left. The second statistician fired, but also missed, by a meter to the right. The third statistician didn't fire, but shouted in triumph, "On the average we got it!"
Its been a while since I've done looked at averages. Now, I have to fully admit that my data is a merely a small slice of what Cryptic has available to them. Moreover, I would imagine that Cryptic has access to economists and statisticians if they need a consult. I've got Excel and no formal instruction in the field. But, hey, when has that stopped me? While I'll warn against looking too much into my numbers and charts, its still interesting to look at. But first, our normal compound view of things...
