So, to answer the first of these.
And recall that I restrict my play time to 30 – 45 minutes on a weekday. My rl employer works me like a dog.
On any given day when i log in i will have the option of:
7. Look for new items to haul from Jita to Dodixie / Hek. Can take 30 minutes and involves me researching prices and trends.
8. Look for new items to manufacture. Can take 30 minutes and involves me researching prices and trends.
Hence, on one day i will typically do (1), (2), (4) and on another day (3), (5) and (6). At the weekends I will look into (7) and (8).
I tend to work out what i need to buy in Jita and what skillbooks I need to buy when i get back from work and get the items bought and set up the Rush Job contracts with Pushx Industries. And then before i go to bed they have normally been delivered so that i can post them to sell in Dodoxie and Hek, and update all my sell orders in those regions at that stage.
The one thing that being away from home on business for a few days in a row at times is that i don’t need to update my sell orders every day. Now that i am out of the competitive sub-system market, my other items for sale just sell naturally over time over 2 to 3 days before losing momentum.
