My main, Iddo Cohaagen, now has 12.8 million skill points.  I've come a long way, and it's a good time to reflect upon what I'm now capable of doing.  Here are the major skills I've trained:

Gallente Frigate V
Minmatar Frigate V
Gallente Cruiser V
Caldari & Gallente Battlecruiser IV
T2 Small Hybrids & Projectiles
T2 Medium Hybrids
Assault Frigate IV, Interceptors IV
Fitting skills at V (except Advanced Weapon Upgrades IV)
Most key support skills (Navigation, Capacitor, etc) at IV

I can fly Gallente & Minmatar T1 frigates well, I can fly a Thorax & Celestis well and a Vexor at an "acceptable" level (still need those damn drone skills!), and I can field a Battlecruiser in a gang situation if the need arises.  Access to assault frigates & interceptors is also incredibly useful in a wide variety of situations.

Over the course of the next year, Iddo is going to become somewhat of a specialist on cruiser-sized hulls.  I am now training medium lasers, which will be followed immediately by Amarr Cruiser V.  I'm also going to grab Minmatar Destroyer V soon, because I want to play around with Thrashers a bit more.  The Tuskers are now flying Battlecruisers so infrequently that it doesn't really make too much sense to train any of the hull skills to V right now (and Battleships? Forget it).  The slow warp speed is really just painful.  Drone skills have been de-prioritized.  I really don't think it makes sense to max out Heavy & Sentry drones when there are so few ships that it will help (primarily the Ishtar, which I can't fly yet anyway).  I'm not sure that I'm even going to get Heavy Drones within the next year.

I have one re-map remaining, and a new one due to arrive at the end of July.  At some point, probably around 2 months from now, I'm going to need to remap to Int/Mem in order to polish off all my support skills, which will then be followed by a final remap to Per/Wil that will be more or less permanent.
