Don't put skill books in a ship. Put them in your head or leave them in a station.

I can imagine how you feel, i got about 2 millions from another player for with my other char while i was in my trial and bought a cormoran than i lost it in a mission cause of bad setup and wrong tactic. I used the cormoran several days and became very used to it. It was really hard to step back to the merlin, luckely i didnt sold it as i bought the cormoran.
Now that char has a cormoran again with a much better setup and skills to use it....well i hope so^^

Sadly, this incident only underlines the single most important rule in this game. I'm sorry you had to learn it the hard way and hope you snap back from it:

Don't fly (in/with) what you cannot afford to lose or replace.

You will lose the ship you undock with, and you can not cound on those pieces of gear/cargo that you care about most to survive that destruction (and if they do, odds are another player will have looted your wreck beforey ou could go back). Only undock with those items that you need during your flight, and only fly ships that you can replace easily with your current means.

why not get out of the jita area where its laggy go s few jumps away and make some money first mining it's a safe and easy way do it for a week you will have enough cash to lose Wink also try doing missions with someone, and its ok to warp away and take a few moments to gather yourself before going back in to the fight and dont fly or fight with valuable stuff in your cargo hold train the skill so its in your head for future studying or drop it off first at your HQ good luck

Buy another .... merlin?

Hold on a sec... you say you lost it in "combat" due to lag... dude thats grounds for petition. If you were in "battle" versus npcs and could not activate shield boost, armor rep, warp out, you can petition that and they'll get your ship back to you... just copy and paste the kill mail that you received from concord onto the petition letter and say that you've logged out...

Yes in my case that was true, i was far away to make enough money for that ship on my own, however i think with mining its a bit difference or not? do you mean i have to make 50 million isk in a crap ship before i spend 25 million for a mining barge?

Just don't get rid of your 12 million mining barge or 8 million mining cruiser to buy the bigger one, so you have a backup that can still make money faster than a snail.

Have some sort of contingency plan, it doesn't have to be enough ISK in your wallet to buy two of something, but be prepared to lose it and have something to fall back on.

True however losing a ship and have to start over in a newbie ship wont be so bad, with the right skills it should go quick to get back to the lost ship. Now i am short before able to learn the mining barge skill after a week or so only for the preq skills. Even when i loose the small mining barge the first day i bought it, it wont be that bad when the only thing i need is money to get it back.
