In which mineral prices drop

First time in more than a year I've sold a ship for under a billion. Mineral prices are down 20%, presumably as a result of the recent (ish?) changes to high-end ore. This is bad for me; percent margins tend to be fairly stable, so lower prices mean lower profits.

Not that profits are something I'm super focused on at this point, but I am keeping my research process going and trying to add an 8-ship run to manufacturing every few weeks. On manufacturing I'm way below full production - I expect the ships from run 127 to finish selling before I even install the run 128 hulls - but NBD.

Financial report -- 6/1 through 10/11

Can't complain, I guess.

Edit: Though "ships carried" should be 0 and "research items sold" should be 44.

I appreciate the effort...

...but you're going to need more than 2 tornadoes.

It's semi rare for me to see a gank attempt, so having these chaps hit me twice in five days is noteworthy. Buggers are fast -- they hit me between the time I land on Jita 4-4 and the time my ship docks.
