The Excitement Grows

A New Year.

A new holiday season come and gone.

A new laptop computer for each of the girls and the wife?

Anyway, Wintereenmas ... uh, Xmas is over, and the new year has begun. Still waiting to get myself relocated to a new server, but once AGAIN blizzard has thwarted my designs by make the LFR tool useful, and fun. So now I can FINALLY raid on my alts. The desire to leave Darkspear has once again been diminished in January. This has happened before, you know. I'm just saying.

I myself will (hopefully) be getting some new PC hardware - notably a MB and more CPU power, perhaps some RAM too. Also there are a few existing hardware projects on the go that I intend to complete by end of month.
  1. New Home Server
  2. PC with network shared media
  3. Ubuntu up and running on a full time rig
So much to do, so little time.

Suspension... and Disbelief

So I am writing this blog to begin the tedious process of sharing my life (and the little insights I have regarding same) with the hordes of people who really give a crap about it.

Currently my WoW account is temporarily suspended, due to the negative cash-flow of Wintereenmass - uh, Xmas. Hopefully it will return soon. However this has given me an excellent opportunity to review and replay some of my other favourite games. Here is a partial list:
  • Total War: Shogun 2
  • This is just an excellent game. I have yet to get into the multiplayer aspects, since I still really enjoy the single-player mode so very much.

  • GTA: San Andreas
  • Probably the best of the GTA series so far, althought rumour has it there is a GTA5 scheduled for release in early 2012.

  • Dungeons & Dragons Online
  • Well, as a long-time fan of the P&P (pencil and paper) version of AD&D, I was excited to play this free MMORPG, however it isn't as excellent as the P&P version was. But seriously, what ever is?

  • APB Reloaded
  • A quite fun MMO/FPS (free from Steam)

There is way to much to cover since April, so I will merely summarize the most general items:
  • The boy has grown, and continues to be a handful - both of joy and frustration;
  • Summer plans to visit with close friends were a big hit (at least for us heh heh);
  • Work continues to occupy my life 45 hours a week;
  • The girls and I are going to embark on a "Brickfilm" adventure...


  • January 2012: I am going to be increasing my presence and participation in Social Media

    Fire blasting those socks off

    I have come across a website that you may find interesting. World of Logs gathers data from all the raids in game since Wrath, and compiles handy charts and graphs for us to ooo and awe over.

    I am about to show you the top dps listings for 10 man normal Bastion of Twilight, the Cho'gall fight.

    Are you ready?

    Are you sure?

    You aren't ready.

    And that's why it's good to play with fire.

    Kingslayer ... finally

    So last night, Schokti arranged a raid group, and she and I finally got to get the "Kinglayer" title.

    It. Was. Epic.

    I wish I'd had video recording software to record this epic moment. It was a little late coming, to be sure, but better late than never.

    Next on the acheivement agenda? I honestly don't know, since as of this writing, Himhotepp still isn't 85 yet. Still, I am slowing working toward a few achievements - cooking, exploring - you know, the easy ones. :)

    I'll try to keep everyone posted.

    Everyone is talking fire these days. Here is a pretty decent article from WoWInsider. Aside from his comments on fire blast (which is covered thankfully by others in the comments following the article), it's a pretty good read.

    Get going. Go.
