I finally moved the last of my stuff out of Syndicate. They had been clogging up my inventory list and annoying me, but each time I thought I should do something about them I would read an EVE news item about some active war going on in the region.
In the end the extraction was uneventful. I had hoped to find some wormhole to make the process a little safer, possibly quicker, but had no luck. I initially struggled with the scanning interface, which had changed again since I last used it. It was worthwhile practice in the end.
There are still some items that I re-listed on the market. If they don’t sell I will trash them.
On the plus side – the thing which triggered my exit, the long delays and blank screens on undocking, didn’t seem to be as bad any more.
